Wow. Seeing those pics again for the first time in.... well over a decade! That really brings back some memories of the old days on the forum...

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Wow, this place has such a history. I bet it was pretty wild back in the day.

The only person not named in the photos is the one in the blue shirt

I think Wayne made a good point. Empty flower was like a bar - you could talk shit and have fun. RSF has become more like a playground where everyone wants to be on the side of the bully.

RIP David - we had some great chats on the side.

Thanks for bringing this thread back - I missed it the first go round.

Lurked on EF and signed up to RSF around the transition... sad to see far fewer Great Old Ones posting these days than before. Although seems like enough of them are still hanging out in TNT!

For what it's worth, I still believe in the bar.

I've only been around here since the last days of EF, but I've been wasting time online since the pre-internet days of dial up modems and BBSs.

One thing that has never changed is people looking back to the old days when everything was better... that was as true 20 years ago as it was now. It is a judgement that rarely survives even a cursory examination.

The more I train the less I know and the less I have to say, so I rarely post about anything of import. That said, I remain indebted to this forum for being where I am now, and the information contained is still more than worth the time spent skipping over the noise that permeates any busy forum.

Thank you David for setting up EF and for the present proprietors for maintaining this den of iniquity in it's current form :)

At least we haven't had any actual challenge matches for years. The best was when Omar was supposed to fight the female mma fighter, but instead the other two went at it in the parking lot. THOSE were the days! And, that wasn't even that long ago (EF days?).

This is a great forum, and I met some cool people to workout and/or drink beers with over the years. I remember when I first met Jaime, he thought I was a female because my first handle was Jianyun. :)

Thank you all who keep this up and running.

Anna?

That had to be 2005 or 2006.

Update: I guess 2007

Yeah I was lurking on Jarek's board when EF first showed up.
Can't remember anymore, was it red-on-gray or something?

Kill me,but I don`t recall it either,
gee,
I even don`t remember nick of the guy who had quite big quarrel with me,/no calling for the duel, dough/ just before opening his own forum- where lot of the eF members firstly moved, and even faster "returning " here :D . He took the eF credits for the while , I suppose.
hmm, there was something with the red leafs in the name or banner ??? .

That's a good thing to forget IMO; fuck 'im
Besides, he stole that nick anyway, from Dan Madar who was "dan the madman" for years in the beginning.


There are more fun things to be remembered, like Asura's promise to make the Universe his personal toilet or something along those lines. ;D
