Exclamation [IMPORTANT] post in this thread as soon as you see this topic.

i just want to see who's still actually here. it's depressing how it's so dead around here.

it's where i grew up y'all. man i joined on my 14th birthday.

itt explain why you still actually come to the forums despite it being a dead forums about a game decades old and no hope for any sequels.

that's a good question actually.

i can't explain it but remembering all the stuff that went on here/in #lba over the years makes me extremely nostalgic.

OGM! This forum is dying!


/neverendingdiscussiontopic


Compared to some really rough years, this one is fine. There's LBA for cellphones coming up and probably a good bunch of Obrasilio's clones too :P

Haven't been around as much as you guys, but after 2006's excitement bubble (When Fred Raynal got knighted and you had that awesome chat with him and stuff) things slowed down a lot, until they got LBA online running and the fake LBA film and all that funny stuff.

I mean, of course, when it comes to actual LBA related news.

At least last year and this one we've seen a resurgence of Fan-art, the Adeline team seems to be getting in contact with each other again, etc.


I don't know, I just came back after some 6 to 9 months away

The only dude that seems to be seriously missing as of lately is Double-J

I know!

But I thought all those peaks of general LBA news revitalized this place a bit, since we had newcomers coming in as well as long time regulars.

And this cellphone thingy should help a little bit, I guess.


Edit: When I left last year, it was pretty funny with people like Ratchet and Polaris and all the old dudes as well.

i'm pretty sure polaris is still here, and possibly one of the only few newer members that doesn't have me on their ignore list.

not to be a conspiracy keanu but this possibly might have to do with a few members with resentment against me getting together to inform people that i am literally hitler and generally bitching about me and reek.

i don't really understand the point of people putting others on ignore lists though. why not just, i don't know, not respond to posts you don't like?

edit: i think ratchet died in a car crash

edit 2
: reek is right, what i was kind of referring to was the community on a whole. this place used to be a great hang-out spot in its heyday - just enough people to get real conversation going yet it was still a small enough community that you knew everyone and it was kind of like being in a neat little club. and #lba is still like that now. hell, i've probably met more mbners than most of the people here who consider themselves "true lba fans". the social aspect is the thing i miss the most about this place.

wow, that reminds me. i remember a year ago or so twinsan told me he doesn't trust me. he said he's been warned against me or something. some guy told him some bullshit story about me sending nudes of myself to another member or something. he said he didn't remember who told him this but that it might have been darkflame or link.

while we're on the subject, i wonder if the guy in question has the balls to come forward (it's not like i can do anything to him since this is the internet)

I got here when I thought of the idea to make LBA in Minecraft and now I look around here every now and then to be a part of the discussions.

I'm here because it's a habit for me, but I rarely do anything. Tough habit to break I guess. This place isn't what it used to be.

Polaris is still here, I checked his profile a few days ago and it was saying he had logged recently. He is just not answering the threads :P

I don't see the point on ignoring you either. I was told you were a bitch when I joined the forums, and my first impression of ya wasn't good either, but you just have to know the person a little more...

I'm here because of LBA, and because of you guys. This community just became part of my life... Its fun to share my thoughts and opinions with you all, and have all the fun we have. We may have our problems here and there, but the community is awesome in a whole

I am always here, but there hasn't been much to talk about lately
Why we keep coming back is certainly an interesting question... I could say I love everything that can serve as an excuse for not studying
Or I don't know... The fact that we all felt well being here at some point... Far from saying that I consider this place a second home, I certainly like dropping in every couple days...

Double-J kinda left about a year ago, maybe more now... He said he had things to do, and hasn't checked back since

It would be fun to make a thread about what peopole who havent logged in in a while might be doing right now.

And I only check the forums to see if theres any news about LBA.

Reading the new posts is still on my "News-reading"-List everyday. Though I mostly don't find time or necessity to post anything

I like this place. It's dead, maybe, I guess, even DF doesn't post so much lately... Still, I keep an eye on it... And A_LIPSTICK still has me in her sig... Mhh... I wish you could remove that already hey STC, mkay?
Anyway, no matter how inactive this forum has become, I don't think there's any other forum like that one on the whole interwebz! I must say, it had a big impact on me life, as much as the games which caused the forum to exist in the first place.

Hi dudes. Yeah, I still visit pretty often. I have been working a lot recently, so I don't do it on daily basis, but when I turn on my pc I've got that habit to go and check, and every time I'm like "what? still dead?". I remember dead moments in the past, but I don't think they used to be so long. I thought that the upcoming LBA release for iOs and Android was going to spice things up a little, but apparently everyone got bored here. Seems like nobody has got new ideas to resurrect the forums. It's a pity, considering how "old" most of us are, and how long we know each other. It seems the MBN started dying since Double J left, and I can't believe I'm saying this, since Anakin and lipstick stopped being trolls.
Seems like we folks not only got bored of talking about a videogame from 20 years ago, but we can't find anything else to talk about here on the MBN.

Maybe its not that we got bored to talk about it, its just that we talked about almost everything regarding it. There is just no more subject to discuss

I check the forums everyday but I don't have the necessity to post in a thread most of the time. It's sad that we're going inactive since this is a forum that means a lot to me personally and as some of you have stated, it's also important for you
