Ok, updated the collage to include Kwak whom I had shamefully missed, Zhukov and Goremocker for dropping in after so long, and some more familiar faces who made the move to v2 but stopped frequenting. I've updated the original post, but here is everything again.

This is starting to get depressing looking at all the people that haven't posted in years now. I don't even remember some of them coming to V2 like Caramel Frappe.

Edit: Also you're missing Saelune and Houseman.

He did, but briefly. Only stayed a couple weeks, a handful of posts. Also, dammit, I keep finding more people who also made the move, even if they didn't stay long. Like Saelune, IceForce and Tireseas.

Also, the "Last person to reply wins!" thread in v1. Lasted almost ten years. sb666 won.

And that's a bad thing? I'm referring to Housebitch.

Oof, I didn't make the cut for the "Your existence will be vaguely recalled" mural.
Rough day for my ego.
Yeah, sorry. Every time I think I'm done, there pops up someone else I missed. This is proving surprisingly hard.

Considering that other banned users like Yoshi are up there, it's only fair.
I have to say it's a little embarrassing seeing that big ass B for me.
As it should be for all you buggers too lazy to set an avatar.

Not to nitpick but here’s it tweaked a bit -

I agree that that is better laid out, but if it were in the same dimensions as Bob_McMillan's current "avatar" the McMillan part would be partially cropped out by the frame.

Was it Zhukov? Cuz he popped in yesterday. Didn't say that much, but seemed like he's ok.
I don't think so? I dunno, I'm really struggling with the name although I do think it started with a Z. I might dig back to see if I can remember. Dude had an anime avatar drinking bleach from what I remember on the old forum but digging into an archive is a lot of work to remember a name.

Wait, are you thinking of Zontar maybe?

He's from Canada. Him and Saelune were always fighting. I remember we used to joke they secretly wanted to hate-fuck, which in retrospect was pretty gauche. Last I checked, went deep into the Maga conspiracy theory rabbit hole on twitter. Still on twitter btw.

THAT'S who it was, thank you. Its good to hear he's at least continuing to survive, but yes, I can't say I really want to seek out a discussion there. I just remember that he was eastern Canadian, worked manufacturing and had a lot to say about anglo/french relationships which put him in SW Ontario in my mind. They had huge layoffs in the auto manufacturing sector there around the time he dropped off the site, and I was worried he was out on the street honestly.

Yeah, I dunno. Canadian conservatives and American conservatives have startlingly few overlaps beyond a few major talking points, but every now and then somebody grabs the wrong end of the wrong stick and things go weird. A lot of what he argued about only applied to American politics because the systems are just different.
