Thank ya, Sal. What made it so addicting back then for me was just the whole community. So many people from every corner of the world having a good time... it always kept me motivated to help wherever I could and keep things fresh with new features, "smilies", etc. But it all starts with the community as a whole. If more hang around and get into it, the place will come back to life. The forum itself is probably the most user friendly amongst the four systems the site's evolved with.

Yeah, man, you remember them all, huh? First, ezBoard, then vBulletin 3, then vBulletin 4, and now XenForo... :) We certainly have a history...

Ha! You missed one! vB 3 & 4 I'd clump into one system. After EZBoard was UBB! I remember "finding" my way into the admin panel before ya ever told me about it lol. I let ya know right after and you were just like, "that's ok, but be careful!" or something to that effect.... hard to believe that was like 20 years ago 😲

Allow myself to introduce.... myself...eh... RE-introduce... as it were :p

Started out on the old 80sXchange back in 2000 I believe... later became a mod, then admin helping Sal run the place til somewhere in 2006. Had a falling out, came back in 2012 to reconcile that mess and gain some inner peace with that. Disappeared again shortly after and outside of e-mail, research and maintaining my photography site, pretty much went dark on the internet for the past 4 years or so. Then I get a message from Diofan that I was inquired about on a Facebook group... not really a social media guy... but then I saw the link to this and yeah... this works better for me, so here I am!

8 years later... a little older... I'd like to think wiser... maybe a new beginning. I can't say I'll be the presence I was once upon a time, but I'll try to be around here and there ;)

And to all that introduced before me that I didn't get to welcome back... welcome back! Hope everyone's doing well in this crazy new world.

Welcome back Bro! Good to see ya on here.

DJ Midas, glad you're back, too. Sorry, I was slow to see some of the earlier introductions here.
I loved '80's dance music in the clubs, it's still the best kind💛
And I miss vinyl. Sounds more timeless.

No worries, Vilji! I'm in total agreement with you. :)

Been busy with life these past few weeks, even if it's mostly at home, just popping before I hit the airwaves on Renegade Retro. Good to see and hear from familiar faces! (y)

WOW finally found this place. It really brings back memories. I also was Walvis back in the day. I am the Prince / Bowie worshipper and fierce Dutch 80's music promoter.
It's so great to see all of you again.
