I remember you. Most of the OG members have probably been doing similar things to what you’ve been up to or started families or careers. I haven’t seen Hero on here in years. G-Eazy now known as @Ace_Ryder pops in every so often. There are a lot of cool new members here these days. The site change wasn’t all that bad while being an active member, but I can see how it’s kind of a shock when returning after being away for so long. Get active again if you got the time. Peace.

:wave:

Most OG people have grown out of gaming and such. Occasionally someone like Cody will stop by but generally we only see them once then they leave.

OG idiot reporting for dooty. I remember you. Things change, people move on, new people come. I’ll always miss the old community, but happy the site is still going strong. The other sites during the modding boom have either died or are hanging on like a dingleberry because they failed to evolve like this one.

lmfao I think we did. I use to have the name Blizzard too

Agreed. I don’t know what influenced me to try and come back but here I am checking up on the site every few days. Like myself, I figured most of the other originals have outgrown community-based gaming and lack the time to remain active on a forum. It is so hard to believe it has already been 8 years :disappointed_relieved:

@Derrick_Rose as my father always told me, “The only thing that is constant is change”. Though some may have grown out of gaming with the advent of marriage and family, some of us never do. Though I’ve been divorced for years, I was married for ten, and even used to game with my wife back then.

Since then, much has changed, I’ve had my share of relationships, even raised two boys as a stepfather. All the while, I still enjoyed gaming as time permitted. Almost two years ago, after deciding being single was in my best interest long-term, I agreed to return to my home town to care for my elderly father (now 87). After my mom died four years ago, he’s had difficulty keeping up with the house. In the hospice, I promised her I would would stand by his side when he needed me, and I knew that time had come.

He is a prideful man, and wants to retain his independence as long as he can. With me here, he is able to do so, as well as see a reflection of the wife he once has, as I have many of her traits. I handle quite a bit of work around the house, including DIY repair, and the tasks he has difficulty with. Regardless, in my free time, I still game, as I always have. If anything, gaming is more of a recreation/diversion than ever as it is not an easy task to care for and elderly parent, both physically and emotionally.

Obviously, I don’t have an abundance of “free time”, and at 45 my reflexes aren’t what they used to be. Gaming to me is a recreation, not a competition, so WeMod and the associated community have truly been a great thing for me. Though things may have changed from what they were, and some may have left, I think you will find a wonderful community, as I know I have.

There will always be those who come and go, but those who remain. I will be one of those who remain, as I enjoy gaming, but without the time and skill I once had, I rely on WeMod to augment my gaming experience to something more my style and speed. I’ve worked with computers since I was 8, and gaming since I was 13. I’ve also been a software engineer for over 22 years, so I don’t see myself going anywhere.

My father’s recreation is reading, mine is gaming. When he’s reading and doesn’t need my help, I’m using gaming when I’m not working on a “home project”. I welcome your return, and though I cannot speak for the past, I can certainly say it is a very kind and considerate community. If you are on Steam, you can find me by the same name, so feel free to befriend me (just let me know who you are). I’m usually “invisible” or in-game, but I will respond to messages.
