Default I miss this place!


I just spent an hour or so going through some old posts, and MAN do I miss this place.
Looked over my '2011 year in review' sigs - man that was fun stuff, and I REALLY need to get back into it.
I watched my 'Day in the life of Glass' movie that I made - What a DORK! haha. Crazy that that was already like 3.5 years ago. So much has changed since then!
And those posts were all from AFTER GI was shut down for a while - so I'm definitely missing the earlier days too.
Hard to believe I've almost been a member here for almost 8 years. I feel like I really 'grew up' with some of you guys!

Hope all is well, everyone!

Hay glass long time hope ur well ... i understand what your saying personally iv missed GI to... back when we had SOTW n DOTW every week n had tons of participants.... new faces appeared everyday... to believe iv been a member since 2008....7 years on the trot ... became a team leader (7heaven)... battled and befriended some of the best gfx heads on the net at the time (i.e. 8bit*, DAZE, you, Adrenaline, yfelis... etc)... 7 years of awesome history here.... i still find myself glimpsing at this board from time to time hoping for a spark of GI life to return... all for naut.... mi was thinking maybe we can find ppl or something at 1 point but now i just dont know.... iv been combing the web for former GI memebers but the majority are nowhere to be found... sad to say but maybe its time Ra puts this place to rest finally

Yo man! I think we were all in the age range where we had some extra time here and there to design; high school students, university students, etc. Now we're all growing up and have less and less time for designing, gaming, etc. We never got that next 'generation' of people to join. All throughout the internet, interest in amateur graphics (sig making, etc.) seems to be dying down. I can hardly find an active site anymore. Sad. Those were good times, and definitely taught me skills that I still use today.

God I miss this as well. It's every few weeks that it pops into my mind "Hey I should check GI!". I wish that my generation had introduced themselves to forums and communities like this. It's only a fair few that have done so, weirdly enough. This forum has definitely taught me what I love. I've bettered my experiences and skills from this website alone.

Pretty freakin' cool if you ask me.

I think we all miss it really and I still keep in touch with RaMarcus. Unless his view on it has changed recently I don't think he actually has any plans to complety get rid of the place. I have to agree with glass in that while it was great at its peak, most of us have grown past the point of being able to be on here constantly. It's a shame as it was really fun. It does hurt a bit sometimes coming back here and seeing there's maybe a couple of new posts from the past month or two. That used to be if I refreshed it 5 mins after going through them all!

This place will always hold something for us

Damn I miss this place so much. Not sure if you remember me, haven't been active in 3 years so wouldn't be surprised but this place was a like a second home to me a couple of years back. Legit would come on everyday after school and make sigs, comment on shit and challenge everyone I could to a battle HAHAHA. Every so often I come back to check out old battles and posts and reminisce. When school started getting serious I stopped coming to GI, then stopped gfx altogether; kinda regret it now looking back at it. Started first year of uni now and looking at how amateur graphics has died down throughout pretty much every forum I doubt I'll start gfxing again, but I do miss it and this place as well. I taught me a lot.

Hope all you guys are doing well! Just wanted to say I miss you lads and this place will always be something special; instead of just stalking the forum HAHA!

This was the place to be after coming home from school...spent A LOT of time here.
Now we'd probably be more active if we turned this place into a handyman forum hahaha
Anyways, it'd definitely be cool to have a beer or 5 with some of you guys.

Yea definitely second what everyone has said.
Good to hear from you, Riot.
And Chris, that'd be really fun haha.

I think it's still amazing that even after ALLL of this time away, I still have an average of over 2 posts per day. That's ridiculous.

All of you were a big part of my high school times. Andre and I met irl in NYC last winter!! and I wouldn't mind having a beer with any of you anyday.

Love and best wishes from the bottom of my heart, to all of you, wherever you may be, whatever you may be doing.

PS Glass I still listen to Blue Scholars thanks to you ;D
