Ten years ago today, I registered here and became a contributing member. I may still be on the top posting page (not sure, haven't checked), though I haven't posted very much over recent years. Still, I check in from time to time, mainly in the bus forum (if I can find the latest post buried under a plethora of old, outdated and nagging announcements and stickies).

Anyway, it's been an interesting 10 years here. Who else is still around from the "old days"? I don't see very many familiar faces from way back when.

I registered almost 9 years ago and I still lurk around here once in a while, although I hardly ever post. I know I'm still high on the top posters. This is only my 10th post since 2007. Most of us who posted here from way back then are still high up since this board never really regained the popularity that would be required to drop us down further.

Well, it's always nice to hear from the older members! I do hope that we become more popular. 'Till then, keep on lurking. Submit content, too, if you can! smile

Nice to see that old-timers are still checking in here to see if anything is going on. I've enjoyed my time here as well and have learned a lot. Hope activity picks up again some day. In the meantime, guess there's NYCTF to keep me occupied.

Best regards to all members, old and new!

Same here, I joined and used to post regularly. But these days all the main stuff has been covered or there are endless 'fantasy ideas' that just doesn't interest me. Time flies by and sad to say, everyone is gone elsewhere as have I.

Not a slam on this place, but there's nothing interesting here that I can find elsewhere. So if I post here, it'll be once in a while.

It's not like I didn't try to revive this site. The site never recovered from the 2004 troll war. It was showing sign of recovery in 2006-2007 but NYCTF emerged and the few people remaining at strappies joined. I still post pics here.

It's been 10 years since I registered, too. Until this past weekend, I haven't been here for years. Lost my password, old email address, blah, blah, blah.

I remember you, Brooklyn!

How about Clark (?) Did he ever become a USAIR pilot?

A little strange how this thread has been bumped up so close to 9/11...

It isn't strange at all. As a matter of fact, it's quite appropriate. My topic title reads "Ten Years Ago Today", which by anyone's calendar who visits "today" or within these last few weeks would place their "Ten Years Ago Today" around the 11th of September.

Exactly what are you insinuating with your trailing dotted comment?

And as a moderator here. it's poor form for you to hijack someone elses topic.

I'm sorry, I don't recognize your user name. What was your original user name?

As far as the other folks, I don't keep in touch with many (one or two only, actually) and have no idea what anyone else has been up to.

I do check Bus Chat on rare occasion, but that's the extent of it for me.

Anyway, ten years ago today, I was working a new schedule on a PM shift (that actually began September 9, 2001) along Union Turnpike driving RTS buses #8352 and #8393 :-)

Oh, I didn't take it as a problem, I just thought it was coincidental, an interesting point to bring up. Sorry if you thought I was hijacking!
