Hey all, how has it been?

It seems even as the years go by I'm still drawn back to this place. I came here excited to get into the editor, make some cool hacks, learn some code... yet, it seems in the end I didn't really do any of that. Instead, I just posted. I was always interested in the idea of hacking, but somehow I never really got into it. So I gave my thoughts and read the thoughts of others. And then, eventually, I left. I don't know when or why, but I did. And still, I feel drawn back. Maybe it's the forgotten aspiration to hack a few cool tweaks into Golden Sun... but, of course, that's not it at all. Instead, it's the nostalgia about the experiences I shared with everyone here, and about the relationships which formed between us that, I hope, weren't entirely one sided. Names and faces have changed, some have come, others gone, but I still remember some of the original names: Atrius, Jamietheflameuser, Salanewt, Role, Charon, Charleysdrpepper. And, there are more, I'm sure, so forgive me if I don't have an entirely perfect memory.

But, if we're honest, I probably wouldn't expect your memory of me to stick. I only have, what, 174 posts here? And somehow I think this forum is so important? The majority of my posts were in 2010, and most of the veterans have posts in the thousands, so what makes me so special? I've had far more posts in other forums, but I haven't felt the same way with them, so what gives? Maybe I feel such an attachment because this forum is a relic from before I moved from a big city to the middle of nowhere. Honestly, I don't know at all. In fact, this whole post is just a recycled version of previous posts I've already made in the past trying to become a regular again. So... we'll see if history repeats itself again.

Every time I try to clean up my bookmarks I take a look around to see if anyone's still hanging. And, surprisingly, here you all are, if the memories weren't an excuse enough to keep me from erasing this site.

I don't know if I'm back to stay, or if this will be another unfulfilled excursion to the GSHC, but for now I'll be here.

Oh hey, welcome back! I may as well mention that four of the six original names you listed are different right now (I'm Salanewt for reference, and I might be again soon enough). Been up to anything fun lately? It's nice to see you around again.

I remember... Still afraid I might get the names Matrim and Menaus mixed up.
I would be the "Charleysdrpepper"... Since around 2011, I went by Teawater here, and in 2014, I became Mr. Foxy as I am now. (Well, Fox.) Fox is supposed to be temporary.

Heheh... You reminded me of this song:

[7:28:42 PM] Salanewt: An added bonus is that Isaac and co. were trying to stop Saturos and co. because their beliefs state that Mt. Muffin should remain a virgin.

Been up to anything fun lately?

Right now, not much. I just finished high school this year, and now I'm working out exactly what happens next. I've gone through high school on the supposition that I'd go straight to college and get a degree in electrical engineering. Now, while I still have an interest in a career in that field, I've also taken a comparable interest in economics and in becoming an entrepreneur. Before that, though, I should also mention that I'm Mormon (specifically LDS), so I'm certainly going on a mission. For now, though I'm helping with my family-run business, so that'll give me some time to sort a few things out.

Yep! I guess that just leaves Jamie? Wonder if he'll come back and say something... Although, I haven't seen much activity from him lately. :/

But I do trust that he is definitely one of those that would revisit at some point. (Most likely.) Edit: Oh wait. He was last active yesterday? Wasn't he? XD Nevermind, then.

Fox: Okay... Meanwhile... ah... 162 being a number that has made itself known to me.... I look at the relationships of the numbers.... 162  1+6+2 = 9 ; onesizetwo = alphabetical order = 9 characters ; Distance apart analysis: os = 4 = 1[6][2] , st = 1 = [1]6[2] , ot = 5 = [1][6]2 ; ost = original sound track?

Fox: e.g. this art = http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/Themes/Jupiter/images/catbg.gif (etc.)
October 12, 2017, 04:48:58 AM
Fox: I have a question: Where did the art for the headers come from? (Like the backgrounds to each of these things... "Affiliates", etc... Asking just incase it inspires me to do something... but if Charon made it, then that's cool too.
October 11, 2017, 04:23:02 AM
FoxWas thinking about having something for the editor anniversary, but I believe I had to change my mind....
October 10, 2017, 12:58:36 PM
Fox: That's alright. ;       @AZVRE's profile: "Current Activity:  Editing the profile of Fox." ...Eh... That looks weird.
October 07, 2017, 11:45:16 PM
Atrius: Sorry about that, the auto bot detection is still working, but it also requires an admin to visit the site regularly.
October 04, 2017, 04:17:40 AM
Fox: Yeah, it does bring a small amount of activity. Not good quality activity, but it's still activity, nonetheless.  Now if we can get them to randomly post pictures and vdeios!
October 04, 2017, 02:10:48 AM
Majora: If nothing else, I like how they're copying the content of real posts at random. Interesting to see how they adapt to seem more authentic
October 03, 2017, 08:29:38 PM
Fox: medico6601 = Most likely another bot. :(
September 26, 2017, 03:32:24 PM
Fox: by ten* Excuse me.
September 26, 2017, 03:32:12 PM
Fox: Oh yes... Also multiply all levels by two. (So actually, an adept will have levels of 54, 3, 2, and 1, rather than 5, 0, 0, 0.... if going by those.)
September 26, 2017, 03:29:07 PM
Fox: ...I mean the theory also saves space on the Status Screen.
September 26, 2017, 03:26:11 PM
Fox: Random/fun concept theory: What if we got rid of ePow/eRest, and just made eLevel do everything. :P (A process of cleaning stuff up... Though, could make things less versatile. - Like, if a Djinni add 1 eLevel = Okay, that's understood... by why specifically +5 on the ePow/eRes (Rhetorical))
September 23, 2017, 04:42:08 AM
Fox: Oh nevermind, it does... but I swear I saw that a minute ago.
