Anything before '05 is probably known as the Golden Years :rolleyes: +Rep to figure out why (Not that it's that hard ^.^)

My guess is its before the stream of annoying members? When Seth didn't have to be such a tough admin?

~~~

Anyway, I think I made an account during the crash... I'm not, sure, hard to check, though I might not have. either way, Pineapple is here to stay. ^.^

Also, why don't we have a forum for Diablo 2?

Because D2's kinda dead o_O I think we have them, but have them hidden because they're never used... Or they weren't when we had them out.

And no, that's not the reason ^.^ The Seth was not an Admin in '05...

Was it because the site might have been a bit smaller, and consequently there wasn't as much to manage, and it was easier to track members who flamed/didn't help?

Bingo. +Rep to Pineapple, even though [technically] Acehart got it first, mentioning it in a rep comment to me :D But still, Pineapple got it publically first ^.^

Ugh, next Feburary will be 3 years o_O You guys aren't SICK of me yet?!

You're also too late :p

Yes, the joke was that I wasn't here before Feburary of 05! There wasn't anyone to ban every half-wit who came to the forum ^.^

Imagine, a TheHelper without Seth...

We would have... well... um... I don't know. So other admin instead. :D

In two days I will have been here for 1 year woot!

TH.net grew up, survived and flourished long before the Seth ever came to these green pastures... I'm sure it will survive, flourish some more and continue on long after I am gone, whenever that will be ^.^

Not any time soon, I would say ;)

Uhm, 05
If I think back correctly, not to many SMs with the SM fourm still up and running, good times...."rate dis hoe" threads were fun!
The Seth mapped?
Conan mapped?
We still had that TH project going?
Orc was a noob?
Less staff and fourms?
Me costantly vying to be a mod?
God the list goes on and on!

That's changed? :eek: :rolleyes:

I've thought about mapping again. Different ideas, too. I think I am the most disappointed that I never finished the Evil Within game... Such potential for such greatness :( Ah well.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • jonas jonas:
    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D
  • jonas jonas:
    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that
  • jonas jonas:
    You came during the 0 covid policy right? How'd you get through quarantine? Did you have some help with the apps and green codes?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you have any Chinese you need help with, let me know.

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @jonas Those were the things I did too. Translate app and VPN are always the most important things to have to survive. Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yea I came last year. I was quarantined for about 30 days. Fml. The first day of my quarantine was the eve of Chinese new year last year. Fml again... Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @tom_mai78101 IIRC you're from Taiwan right.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I thought China had cracked down on having any foreign teachers?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Monday people hope everyone has a fantastic week!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Happy Monday?! That's a contradiction.

  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
