Fellow OldScapists; take heed!
Your leader Souplex still lives.
Though we remain dispersed throughout the far reaches of the internet, exiled from our true home, we are all still 'Pists; united by a common purpose!
The time has come for us to put aside our differences, and act as one under my undisputed leadership!
Only then can we cast off the shackles of NewScapist oppression!
Working together, we can raise up our glorious forums once more...
...And crush all who stand in our way!

Enough flowery speech; down to the nitty-gritty brass-tacks.
Many of the posters who made these forums great have either drifted away, retreated into user-groups, or been banned, and these forums are withering under a pile of gender threads and gimmick threads.

Your task is simple: Contact other Escapist users who have drifted away, and try to get them back.
If only some of us do this, it will not work. Without a concentration of quality posters and quality threads they will resume drifting.
We must work together.

Capatcha: Upper hand.
That is correct.

The first person to correctly guess where I stole that speech from gets a cookie.

I'll watch these efforts from my bunker. [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/groups/view/The-Internet-Bunker]


I offer asylum to anyone who wants it. I remain neutral.

Is there an age cut-off for OldScapists :p?
March of 09 means you were there for the glory days.
You're fine.
This is about how long you've been here, not how old you are.

So what are the specifics of being an Oldscapist?

Haha well my 11 year-old self can't quite remember all the details but I do remember some kickass people, particularly in the Forum Games. Didn't they move to another forum? I believe it was Irish-themed.

Generally having joined 2010 or earlier.
But it's not exact.
There are people who joined in 2011 who carry the OldScapist spirit.
It's one of those nebulous ill-defined things like patriotism; some people will say it's what you feel, others will say it's how you act, others still will provide their own wacky definitions.

By everyone do you mean Furburt and a few of his friends, because in that case, yes. In any other case, everyone just spread out to wherever.

Well I just saw Ayaline in another thread, maybe it's working?

If you remember the great war then you're old enough to be here.

There have been many great wars, I have been neutral to all of the ones I have witnessed.

She's coming back out of her own accord. Found out via Formspring first. :p
Coincidence? *Puts on tinfoil hat.* Regardless of reasons, that's good to hear ^^.

Ah yeah, that one was fun to watch. I lurked throughout that struggle.

*salutes* Cadet Gray, reporting for duty! Sunshine rays in firing range, sir! :)
Aylaine has brought her heavy artillery. Your cause is looking to be just.

I'll still be in the bunker though.

The great 09' troll raid was a pretty defining event as well.
They came by the hundreds, spewing flames.
They were everywhere and nowhere at once.
For a single night we stood fast, reporting and moving on.
And by morning, all the trolls were slain, but there was not a single loss on our side.
'Twas a glorious thing.

You're a monster, we lost good men in that war. You're not even half the man of some of the youngest recruits out on those front lines! YOU WEREN'T THERE MAN. YOU WEREN'T THERE.
