Been a while since I hung around these parts and used the site for more than meeting new players. I hope to post more and see if I can regrow old friendships, if anyone remembers me.

Was curious - What does that [the 300(+7)] mean?

We tried to see how many people we could get online at one time! Anyone who was part of that push, got a 'The 300 (+7)' badge. Doesn't really mean that much, just that you participated in it. Course, at about 300, we hit the limit of how many people the forums could handle!:biggrin:

Yes but we did jam it up that night!

Ahh, sounds like a good time! Although it scares me to think of what could happen when you get that many gamers together!

Costumes, and LARPing, and Monty Python quotes, oh my!

A few old dogs and other beasts.

Guess that I will fall under the other beasts section since I would not consider myself as one of the old dogs such as Tesral and a few others that have been gaming since forever. If I recall correctly, I think it took Farcaster around 45 minutes to get things going again after we crashed. It all boiled down to a preset number that was not known about that shut things down when it was reached.

Well there is a face I know. Thoth-Amon still around here?

I haven't seen him in a long while.

There are a lot of old faces I haven't seen in a long while. Including myself.

Regarding 300+7, in the older version of this forum, it had a number listing the most people on at one time. It was about 436ish. So we organized a night to break the record. A few folks got some nice swag (grand prize was $100 to drive-thru RPG). So many people signed on at once, we caused total failure. The stats recorded 307 at the time of critical failure. Farcaster gave us all the title of "the 300 (+7)"

Life tends to impede things. However, I have started up a new game with Umiushi, so excited about that.

I had forgot the plan but had got on at the time anyways. Used to have great conversations back with Thoth.

I think there was a lifetime community supporter account given out also. That was when Farcaster made me a Moderator as well.
