Nintendo 64 Forever Homecoming Celebration!

Attention all members. In honor of us nearing the 1000 member mark, I am pleased to announce the start of a celebration period. :applause:

I will soon be sending out a mass email to everybody who ever registered as a member here. This email is to inform all members of the celebration, but specifically members who have moved on. Basically I am reaching out to formerly active members who may have forgotten about us. The email will highlight our recent staff and forum changes in an effort to draw some of them back as regular posters :D

The staff is also discussing possible prizes being given away. So keep your eyes open for that. Nintendo 64 Forever T shirts are even being discussed. Hopefully we can figure out a way to make that work. I will ask all of our current active members to please give a hearty welcome to any old members who stop back by. You will find a special topic for them in our "Welcome" section here shortly.

If any of you have any questions, thoughts, or suggestions feel free to post them here, or PM me or another staff member. How long will this celebration last? We will try for a month, but will push it further if we are able to keep the ball rolling.

I will also use this time to thank all of you, our faithful and active members! You keep this place special :yeah:

Glad to see some people sharing in my excitement :lol: Shadow, that is my sincere desire. We have some awesome members, but we have lost a lot over the years too. I know how things can be though. Life gets busy. This forum sometimes goes through slow periods that can leave people thinking it is dying, so they move on. Whatever the reason they left, I just want people to know we are still here and as strong as ever.... if not stronger! Heck, this place has lost some great staff members move on too. (Floorcat, Mop, Data) I would love to see those guys back regularly too. At least alxbly has been by some lately :D Or even forum legends dagoss, young, & ragedy! I am also hoping to see the return of Coorsy101, a cool dude some of you may remember. He was a valuable contributor around the time I was added to the staff. He has weekly "top 5" posts helped drum up activity during a real down time here. I am not sure what happened to him, but I hope to see him return.

Yeah, I miss some of those guys. alxbly and Mop in particular. They had both joined a few really small forums I was apart of for awhile and were always really fun to talk to. They were both very active when I joined up here in 2008. But I know how it goes. I stopped coming here for a few years and don't really have any excuse for it. Anyway, I hope your efforts are very fruitful.

Many of the old-timers on this site formed the foundation upon which we all so proudly stand today. It would be no greater honor than to have them visit here again if only to let us know how they're doing.

Nice idea! Great stuff and it would be nice to have some of the founders/orignal members back, even if they only wanted to say hi. May this website really live forever :n64:

I agree! I know people get too busy for message boards in life sometimes. It would be nice just to catch up with some of them if nothing else. I am hoping we get some of them stopping in here soon. I am getting a bit anxious, but am trying to remind myself it has only been 24 hours since I sent the email.

This is great! I got you email and I can't wait til more people show up, I know I've only been here a couple days but I really love the positivity in this forum. Also N64 forever shirts would be awesome. If you do make them please put some good effort into the design, I would want more than just the logo ironed onto a white shirt. I have faith in you :lol:

The positive vibe is the glue that holds us all together.

I hope some come back but some of the older threads feature a negitive and bad vibe. Which is weird because the place seems really nice and helpful. Almost like a darker past, hmm glad it is not like that now.

It has always been pretty well friendly since I've been here. Early on when it was pretty small, a lot of guys used to rib each other a good bit. Young or styoung as he was back then and ragedy did a lot I remember. Others too. Perhaps that is what you mean? We have had a few trouble makers over the years though. They usually get "deported" before to long though ;)

Happy you did this as it reminded me the site exists. I come back from time to time when I remember the site exists heh. The fact that you guys bought the domain for n64forever.com will make it easier for me to get here without remembering the bookmarked link for zetaboards.

I havent been playing my n64 much lately and when that happens I visit the site less, but whenever I get into a n64 gaming session I always crave some discussion about the console and end up here again.

Good stuff Stinger, You are to be commended my friend for the hard work you put in around here. Without you stepping up all the time, im sure this place wouldn't be as good as it is today.

Thank you, DeeMoney :-8 I do care a lot about this place, and try to do what I think is best for it. That being said, we have a great staff as a whole. I don't think you were trying to praise me and slight them, but I want to specifically praise them. Each one brings something else great to the table. Ideas are brought up and tossed around privately. Before long, we all have a hand in what goes on around here. They have all been a great help to me, and the community. I may have initiated some of the bigger things in the last few months, but these guys were right there with me backing me up. All of these guys help keep eyes on the forum, which I am proud to say due to activity, is more than one man could ever try to handle :yeah:


So props to the rest of the staff - MkII, lithium, bluedogrulez, & clarky!

PS guys, be watching for our giveaways soon! We have quite the pile of stuff, the vast majority coming from those guys I listed right above :applause:

5 more new members, and I believe the giveaways will start. 995 members. Hard to believe this place has grown by 6 or 700 members in the last year alone practically!

It will be a great milestone for the site and I can not wait. It is scary how many new member topics I see everytime I log on. Even when I first signed up it was slower and now it seems to be constent, all good though.

An n64 forever shirt would be friggin awesome. It would need a cool design and not something super cheezy though.

Yes, shirts would be awesome. For them to happen though, it is likely somebody would have to front a substantial amount of money. Given the amount of active members, I am sure someone could make the money back easily and then some. That being said, that is a lot to ask of somebody. I'll just say, we would consider offers from any financially endowed member(s) who wanted to help :yeah:

Still on 995, that's depressing!! This is probably going to be the longest wait for only 5 members to join ever. :wacko:
