Thanks, Syders, laugh for letting me know about RydaStar's question, as follows:

"Can I add to the questions and ask how Gameboomers got to be known as a reputable name in the gaming community? Was it intended at the start of the site to make and build relationships with game makers and publishers?"

Hi there, Rydastar. Yes, it absolutely was a part of Bob's original plan to incorporate strong relationships with game developers and publishers, right from the beginning. We've always had a strong penchant for Indie developers and, from early on we've encouraged a strong bond with the Indies including The Pixel Shop (Cracking the Conspiracy), Shine Studio (Comer) and, more recently, many others (Harvest, Dark Fall). We've also actively engaged with the vast array of "big guys" in the industry like Sierra, and the developing Dreamcatcher company, along the way.

Bob also encouraged unity, cooperation and friendship among adventure gaming sites through ongoing participation in the formation and activities of The Adventure Games Coalition , which includes over two dozen sites.

Perhaps this answers your first question too, as to how Gameboomers got to be known as a "reputable name in the gaming industry." smile

Best regards, Witchen thumbsup

This is a great thread! Thanks for the old links MacDee, I can't wait to snoop around for a bit.

Thanks for the answer Witchen, you did indeed answer my questions. Running a board is big work, I had a small board with 100 members and it was starting to get hectic. I can't imagine a site to run and a message board with so many members to account for. GameBoomers has definitely grown and I hope it continues with the support of all the mucky mucks. Life does move on and boards grow and change. I just hope the mucky mucks don't get crowded out too much and know that we really appreciate it.

This is a great thread. Thanks so much for the links Dee, I sometimes try to think what colors the board used to be, knew it was reddish, but couldn't remember exactly. thumbsup

Thank you all for the great look back in time. It is fun to review the posts. We are very lucky to have Marita and such a terrific group of mods who put so much time and effort into making this site our second home. bravo
Jenny...Now that you have been promoted make sure they supply petit fours for your coffee breaks and not just donuts. whistle laugh

Hi.

Really enjoying scouting through this topic and taking sneaky peeks at the old stuff happydance

I personally enjoy Gameboomers SO MUCH because the atmosphere remains friendly and polite - even though the membership is constantly growing - and I'm pretty sure that is what appeals to many other members bravo

Cheers.

The old site looks edible, like orange and raspberry sherbet! It was nice to take a peek at history in the making. laugh

Mugsy I have to admit the little suckers have indeed gone a tad over that 181 number the past four years wink

And you should have heard the furor when Bob changed the colors! Looking at that orange and brown now, it's hard to believe how attached we all were to it. duh

Mugsy, thanks for the kind thought, but as long as no-one walks off with my Pepsi (and believe me they all know better than to do that! laugh ) I'm a happy camper...
