The colour scheme has changed during my GB lifetime - I remember a thread about it, who liked it, who didn't etc.

I thinl it was all black when I first arrived, or darker than it is now anyway.

My, how we've grown! Thanks for the links; that was fun looking back. thumbsup I guess I didn't realize I joined so soon after GB started up. And those colors sure were bright, weren't they?! eek


The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....

Thanks for letting us go back in time to the early days of GB. I found it fascinating. When GB first started I was just getting to grips with my first Pc and the internet. I was playing my first adventure game and joining gametz, this ultimately led me to GB.

I used to be uncomfortable having 12 unplayed games on the shelf, thanks to GB I have 10 times that amount and it doesn't worry me in the least!

You know, I have so enjoyed the input on this question and especially seeing the "older" members posting and what they can speak of.
Jude,
I love your response. It indeed makes me comfortable too that I have games sitting around waiting for that mood to hit me to play.
Usually it will come from someone starting a thread about a game and realize-hey I've got that and never played-in it goes.
As much as Boomers is growing and so quickly, it's nice to know that those who started it are able to see that their realization of this site has been achieved and that they still love to check in to see how things are going.
Warm fuzzies are a part of Boomers that I love.

Hmmmm--wonder if we should have some sort of warning on the main page:

DANGER -- joining GameBoomers may result in a serious lowering of your conscience level in some areas...

I remember those colours too. I see from my profile that I actually joined quite soon after GB started up. I'm still here, but I have nowhere near the number of posts of many newer members! blush

I swear I remember the colors as lovely burgandys and the soft gold like the GAMEBOOMERS Logo at the top of the pages.
Orange, bright reds and glaring yellows refuse to be recognised by my brain.

Wow, I didn't know much about Gameboomers history..I enjoyed it very much reading about how Gameboomers become what it is today, "A Success Story" and someday, "A Legend".

Gameboomers has proven to the Web-world as I call it. That there is such a place in the web-site you could call home. Where there is a place you feel comfortable and you find help when you need it. You learn new things, and meet different people from all walks of life..where you can share your thoughts and feelings and have fun playing games and know if you get into trouble with a game or get stuck, help is just a click away..

Love and kindness, and respect goes a long way, and Gameboomers has proven that to be so...

And for all those who started this wonderful site and those that are still with us.... I Thank you from the bottom of my heart for given me a place where I could unwind from the everyday pressures of life.

Thats it Tig, a haven. On those days when you're a little down in the dumps, nothing is going right, there is always Gameboomers. People to cheer you up, tell a joke or just help you out. I come here often just to get "the warm fuzzies". thumbsup
