Naw, not this generation X generation Y generation Z junk. I mean teamliquid generations.
I’ve been lurking tl since the last half of 2008. Finally made an account in July 2009.
And I was listening to the SoTG episode 38. Kennigit talks about how the disciplinary system has changed because everybody doesn’t know everybody else. It’s a far different experience from when I made my first clueless post because some guy worker rushed me with gas stack and I had no idea how to deal with it. Even in this stupid strat forum thread CharlieMurphy and some other guy bantered back and forth making jokes that people wouldn’t understand now, and would say was terribly inappropriate.
I joined tl when the SC2 forum was this one little thing in the corner, and FrozenArbiter presided over it. I sort of ripped off my name from Carnac, cause I thought he was cool lol. My normal alias was Froad. But ac sounds cool, so I made my name Froadac lol.
In any case, I did really like the atmosphere. Even if I was clueless as inside jokes were made, I knew that everyone knew everybody, and personalities were known. Now in this mob I don’t know everybody: not even close. (mob in a neutral way lol)
I joined tlnet just as registration increased for the much anticipated SC2. And I didn’t post much. So very few oldtimers know me, but I had seen them for a year >.>
Anyways, those were good times, with high quality of posting, and a small amount of bashing on newbies ^^
I was just thinking about it, and I can neither relate to the old-timers, or the SC2 wave. I came very late in the BW scene, and know many, but not many of them know me. The awkward period of late BW
