Came in for my monthly log-in to see this.

GTM holds a special place in my heart as it was the first forum I signed up to. 'MouldyKingBash' was the second username I came up with after realising that 'kingweevil' didn't fit the forum. I still remember being back home at the sweet tender age of 9, sitting on my crap laptop, downstairs next to my parents, trying to work out how things worked in the game and on a forum.

10 years later and from the outside, it looks the same. Forum's visuals have barely changed, some of the same faces, mainly still focused on the same game. A lot of progress has been made under the hood, for sure and it's nice that people are still around.

In the grand scheme of things, if the GTM forum was to shut down, it wouldn't affect me in anyway. I've made friends on here that have broken the forum boundaries anyway- so much so I've seen them in real life multiple times. It would be sad to see a lot of archival stuff be lost, though.

Bump.

I've mentioned it before but GTM has really played a part in who I am online today.

Thanks to a group of people who got taught me a bit of discipline and made learn the rules of the forums here it lead me to now.

Now I'm on Smashboards and Reddit with different interests than here. I've spoken about you guys to online friends in good regard a few times. To think getting over that barrier started here.

This place is like that old shop in a town centre. It very rarely changes but it doesn't need too.

Words like RA2, Stock, Robot Wars etc, have been a thing of the past for a few years now for me. However I owe a good bit to the community in who I am now.
Currently Playing: Project X Zone 2, Civilization VI

I'm currently on others forums. Under a different guise.

i hate young people so i do not wish to use discord to interact with anyone and all the people who would actually care about the bots i wanna make are old dudes who are more active here, so personally i would rather this stayed up. there are a variety of things i would personally want to encourage to improve the site (a bit less endorsement of casual trolling, mods being harder on people bangin out slurs since i do see some occasionally when browsing showcases and it's 2020 ect, maybe some visual updates, the usual stuff with some injection of activity for tournaments), but overall it does its job as far as i'm concerned

so what you're saying is, we need to #cancel hoppin
Come on guys just leave him alone.  No forum rule exists that ban players from showcasing useless ugly bots.

Honestly the fact that this forum (and community in general) still exists after all of these years fills me with happiness whenever I decide to poke my head back in.

I think I remember seeing you around when I was properly active, around the end of when I really played this game, so I say you sorta count. thin ice though
