» Memories
The past couple months, this site's activity has boosted. A LOT. There are several new members, as well as members who have been here for a while. Before, I thought this site was dead. I thought if I was gone for too long, I would return to see some notice saying the site has been bought out or something. I didn't want to see something so great die.

But it didn't. The community pulled back together and revived the forums. There are only a few left from the "glory days" of Rage, back in 06 and 07. That's when the entire community was a family. People like tikidawg, Systemax, Ryan, Cindy...those are only a couple off the top of my head. I haven't see those guys in forever! If you would leave the site for 15 minutes, you would come back to 100 unread posts. Not only were the forums active, but people fought for guides. When Rage was revamped, many people were inspired to make this site a success. Sure, people still contribute 50+ points a day, but back then, everyone was involved in the building of the website. If you are a person who still works hard on show guides, don't take any offense to this. I am simply saying the overall interest in them has declined over the years.

It's really sad..I'm glad to see new people come in but it's always sad to see the originals disappear. Thinking about what Rage used to be makes me think of Chris..I'm still in shock that he's gone. He was such a great person. He overcame so many difficulties in his personal life, yet somehow still had time for us. May he rest in peace.

But I digress. Many of you probably won't remember the Rage that I'm talking about, but for those who do, don't you miss what it used to be? Don't get me wrong, this site is great, and it is growing rapidly. I'm just a person who doesn't like change. I miss everyone that used to be on here daily. I only knew one member who was very active (whodey24), but besides him, I did not personally know anybody. I just enjoyed coming on here and see the conversations everyone would start up.

My life has changed a great deal since then. I was barely a teenager back then, now I'm almost 17. I have a girlfriend now and numerous friends who I spend time with. I'm in many activities in school as well, so I don't have as much time for this site as I used to. But to see so many people on this site makes me proud. I might not have been the most active poster, but I was there. I have watched this site grow, and though I miss the way it used to be, I am proud to see what it has become.

It's definitely come a long way since the summer that's for sure. I wasn't around in 06 or for most of '07, but during my early days here, the site was still extremely active. It used to be the guides that needed the most work and the forums were bursting at the seams, now it's the other way around. I'm sure we can balance that out. Whatever happened to Whodey anyway?

I started here at age 14 and was pretty active til I was about 16.
Then during March-April 2010, I thought about that I hadn't been on this site for awhile.
So I signed in and the site was basically dead. I only peeked in once in awhile during the summer and it started to pick back up, so I decided to come back to a full active status.
I still remember all the classic active members, but the new members are just as nice.

Oh nostalgia. I was 17 when I joined here back in December of '07. I had been on TV.com for 2 years but left during summer of '07. When I came back, I found that some of my friends had been banned including ZugZug4 (Ryan). The South Park forum was where I usually hung out at TV.com and around Thanksgiving of that year, Drewshack told me about a site that he and Ryan were both members at and that at this site, you could talk about anything and everything and not have to worry about Hitler (Gislef) moderating you. That site was TVRage. The rest is history.

You were one of my first new friends here Jordan.

I still lurk around here from time to time. Though, if Ryan #2 (aka REK-CAF) hadn't come back, I probably never would have posted here again.

I'll just say that if I ever leave this site, I won't be telling anyone about it.

well TVrage keeps growing, 2011 we will focus on getting visitors converted to active members, we use to be a blimp line hardly noticeable in 2007 compared to tv.com, but as tv.com is in a declining phase, we keep getting more and more visitors



so here's to hoping ideas work to convert idling members / visitors to active community members in 2011
