No worries but what I cannot understand is you have been here 10 times longer than me and you don't know the score. Not being funny but I could not imagine myself not checking in on a more frequent basis as it is where it all starts. I have noticed a number of members who joined years ago then all of a sudden reappear...... Has anyone been kidnapped or in a coma??
All part and parcel of FME, after the last big bust up, we had hardly anything new released and no new emulator, so many people just stopped coming by forums. I believe there was a big bust up here as well, with members falling out and accounts being closed.
I was really heavily into FME, but after the last general FME fall out, I used to visit The Mecca only about half a dozen times a year at most for a good few years. I eventually, could never log into Dad's for some reason, but wasn't bothered as nothing was happening anyway in FME. Eventually got it sorted and found, I'd missed months of FME starting to be incorporated within Mame. Fruit Forums, had about a dozen semi regular posters and nothing FME wise. I used to visit here maybe once or twice a week if I thought about it, instead of once or twice a day at least.
Many members only really visited one forum FME wise as well. I for instance was largely a Fruit Forums poster. I had more interaction on the forums, with Vecs, in the first weeks of MFME v5 being released, then I had for the first 6 years of his FME membership.
