Whatever happened to 9:35 and Swilo? I was bored and checked some of the oldest posts, they kinda died didn't they?

that's september 2002 conan, not september 2003. It can't possibly be september 2003, because I have been a world edit forum moderator since february 2003.

I would say that TH clearly changed the forums a lot between then and the time I joined, because when I joined the forums looked pretty much like they did before we upgrade to vbulletin 3.

actually, perhaps the archive doesn't keep all the template formatting? I am thinking a bit harder now, and I could swear the forums didn't look like that when I first found this place circa 2001.

edit: scrap that, "The Help Zone" forum was the one I remembered, and that did look like I remembered. The World Edit and Star Edit forums clearly started off with a different template style though.

hehe nice snapshot Wargy :)

here's a question I don't know the answer to - anyone know what the origins are of "The Group" ?

In the meantime, here are some cool links found on that page Wargy linked:

Fortunately, we've come some really long way since then... :D

About 2000 to 2001 sometime was when I hosted the-group.org and thehelper.net on my server. I probably still have copies of the site somewhere from that time.

If i remember right, didn't the-group.org split off from thehelper.net? Man that was a long time ago. I think the-group.org was more for general conversations, while thehelper.net stayed more on the serious side of things.

    How come you're so into recipes lately? Never saw this much interest in this topic in the old days of TH.net
  • Monovertex Monovertex:
    Hmm, how do I change my signature?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not big on the recipes I am just promoting them - I use the site as a practice place promoting stuff

  • Monovertex Monovertex:
    @tom_mai78101 I must be blind. If I go on my profile I don't see any area to edit the signature; If I go to account details (settings) I don't see any signature area either.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You can get there if you click the bell icon (alerts) and choose preferences from the bottom, signature will be in the menu on the left there https://www.thehelper.net/account/preferences

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
