My entry in the Lost Histories Jam is up! The Mario Fangame Myth https://shadsy.itch.io/the-mario-fangame-myth
@shadsy This is such a beautiful narrative and reminds me of being a child on the internet at this very same time.
@shadsy we had a similar in-joke for new members, although I don't remember what the directions were anymore.
There was a perfectly nice member with autism who was considered extremely annoying and banned, and for years every annoying new member was accused of being him using a proxy.
There are actually a few members in the retro-gaming community from there, two guys from the ZZT scene named Dr. Dos and someone who used to call himself maZZTer.
@shadsy anyway, thanks again for writing this piece (and for reading my own rambling, I'm sure you can imagine how I'm feeling right now)
@68kmentat I'm really glad you enjoyed it, and I'm touched that you're able to relate it to your own experiences like that. I get why it can be tough to revisit it
