Well well well, it seems it's been a cool 20 years of Square Gamer. The early years were a pretty crazy ride for me personally, and I'm sure for a lot of you all as well. We've made some life long friends, members have gotten engaged, married, had little SG babies, and I think we've got some good divorces on the books as well. I know many of you in real life. Some of our friends have passed to the next life but live on in some great stories and memories. The fact that some of us are still here long after our original reasons for being here have long faded is a testament to how strong a community we built.

July 20th lets have the biggest SG Day ever, where we post like the old days, refreshing every couple of minutes to keep up with the discussion. Let any members you know that haven't been around lately to stop by for a spammin good time. ruroken Here's to 20 years of SG!

Hope to at least beat last year's SG Day!
Can't believe that I haven't seen you since half the time I've known you now...
I guess stuff like social media and seeing people's photos and posts quite regularly makes it easy to forget just how long you go without actually meeting up with some friends.

Modbot should take care of that. Think it’s best now, or closer to the date?

Not sure. Too long before and people will just forget. Too short and people might not notice on time or just decide that it was too short notice to take the tine out.

Yeah, we almost got to meet this year, too. We’ll definitely fly out to the UK sometime once the kid can handle travel.

Could do one now and a second one close to the date. I don’t think that’s too spammy.

Same thing. I'm older too.

But I thought everyone would still be around.

Now, it's like coming home to a run down sektorseven.

Impaler is who again? Just Impaler or did you have another username? I definitely recognize the avatar but that doesn't mean much.

Makes the forum look shitter to passers-by as we have an entire forum that hasn't had a post in years with recent threads from over a decade ago.

I’m surprised we’re that concerned about how the site comes across to passers-by. But ok, it’s a fair reason.

During a previous SG, people pointed out a few forums and asked why they still exist. That's when I realised we should probably slim it down.
I think Doom wanted us to remove TBB and General as well

Doom was considering sticking around and becoming a regular a couple of years back, but then I think I broke him by asking him what he thought of Final Fantasy XV

TBB is our main forum now and it should be even bigger, because you moved one of our biggest threads (a TBB exclusive) to general.

Got daytime/evening plans on Saturday now, but should still be okay for SG Day, as there were barely any posts until the night last year.
