The Old Off Topic

Who remembers the old conspiracy games played by Off Topic forum members?
Or the good morning thread?
And even the good night thread?
Word and picture association games?
Who remembers when you could bet that around a dozen or so Off Topic tappers would be on any given day keeping this board alive?
When happy birthday threads were common practice?
When people would share stories about their lives and people would reply with care and attention?
Off Topic was a nice little community in the hayday of this game, I used to spend many hours at work on the forum with a group of people I have never met IRL but still felt a friendship for.
If any of the old Off Topic tappers see this, please know that I wish you all the best. Even JoshSherer :)

    I was just thinking about this a few days ago. Those were the good old days.

    I remember the Jeerer incident too. That's when we learned THEY see US lol


    What do you think happened, such that it's not like it used to be anymore?

    When I quit the game a few days ago I dipped into the Good Morning Thread and ended up spending a couple of hours there, reading old posts from about the time I joined until I left. This thread was home to an incredible community of posters, and it was a real refuge for me if I'd had a bad day or just felt like baiting Neo, who was our mod.

    To Neo, Chris, Nascarchamp, Cookiekwan, Jax, Juanmata, mwdalton, Bee, Juliet, Davo, MWDalton, Eliansukke, Ladycatlow, Juliet, Sandwichking, Neglecterino and everyone whose IGN I've inadvertently left off, you meant a lot to me and I miss you guys ...

    I hear you, I’m quarantined right now waiting for my tests results, been 5 days since I’ve been tested and I feel 100% better, by the time I get my results, I’ll be recovered. Hope all is well with you.

    Hey!

    We’re on lockdown here, coming up 2 weeks of being in an official state of emergency.

    I’m still working of course, hospitals don’t shut, but that has its own worries.

    I am now thank you, my health is back to normal even though the world is messed up, turns out my test for Covid19 came back positive so I am hoping I have the immunities and antibodies now.

    @empathy77 glad to hear you are alright. There are still a lot of ambiguities in this virus. I saw one report that actually said thatn for those have recovered, if they are to get it again, the effect would be more severe.

    But in more reports, they did mention of possible immunities. Let hope for this
