Old Members. I'm Spiffy469 from like 20 odd years ago. Anyone I know still around?

Evening all,

I'm curious if any of the old guard are still here. I was a member on here circa 2001-2008 under the username Spiffy469. I was just a kid back then. I lost access under that account years ago and started this account back around 2008 or so after I graduated from college. I was a bit of a punk kid back then and was most active when i was in my lat teens (I'm 38 now). I still browse the forums here and there, though I never comment, but I've slowly been getting back into the hobby ( I still hunt back rolls from time to time and am forever filling in my modern sets from change etc. Anyone remember me from 20 years back? I still recall a few usernames from then, but not many after so many years of infrequent posting. LordMarcovan, MrPaseo, DBStrader and mongoose come to mind but thats about it. I also recall some controversy over some guy getting money for dental work and then disappearing, I think? Hendrix?

Anywho, its been some time and I look forward to becoming a bit more active here once again. I hope a few of the kind folks I got to really know back then are still around. If you were one of those, please reach out. It'd be nice to catch up a bit.

Cheers.

Jeff

    I joined the forum in 2002 and your old user name rings a bell but I do not recall anything specific. There are still several members from even prior to my joining so perhaps someone else will remember some interactions with your old user name.

    Mongoose and MrPaseo have been Yeti for a long time. LordMarcovan is still around but doesn't post as much now.

    I remember you, Spiffy, and I'm even an "old member". ;)

    Mongoose and MrPaseo haven't been around in ages and Hendrixkat must have disappeared upwards of two decades ago by this time.

    Welcome back Jeff ... Spiffy!

    I don't remember too much, but I do remember your name and your avatar ... and I'm pretty sure you weren't on my "oh crap, not him again" list! ;):D:p

    I too have come back from a long hiatus. Heard Russ had passed away in 2016 and a couple others. Was hoping to see Mad Marty and Saint Guru but they are also mia.

    Prost!

    I was on the forum back in the late 1990's and early 2000's.

    So great to see so many still around! And sad to see a few no longer with us...
    If the mods can put my profile back together that'd be nice, but either way.
    Thanks to those who responded etc. Look forward to chatting with you all more here.

    LIttle about me these days: Married, Have a soon to be 2yr old boy. We also own and run a small business (full service hair salon with nails, waxing, etc) I also still work a full time job with a major healthcare provider on the claims payment side of things. So all that keeps me quite busy, as you'd imagine.
    Cheers guys.

    If interested in the old profile, then might trying contacting them (Mods). They might be able to send the password or a temporary password to the email associated with the profile or work something else.
