What Does Everyone Looks Like

Recommended Posts

Those days we had "Autolanka Awards" at the end of the year.

Also we had a member called Sylvi , 76 years old.

Good old days. :)

I see that only a very few of the regular old members are active now... what happened to them?

I still logging in occasionally. From the very first 10-20 members I think only Pericles and me are the ones that post although I know others login occasionally to check what's going on.

Why don't we make a thread similar to this like "What does everyone's Ride look like' ?

Would be nice to see the vehicles of fellow members :)

Damn.. I should have been there back then.... I never knew such forum existed until I was searching for websites to advertise that I was looking for a presea... then found this forum..... Too bad I wasn't there from the beginning :(

Komi still haunts the forum, I've seen him on some threads and I'm sure he logs in to read but refrains from commenting or getting too involved.

Slyvi alas, hasn't shown up since he left (for the second time, he came back once after some consideration, only to get upset again and leave) much to my regret. Despite everything, I think the positives of having him on this forum outweighed the negatives. He was fun to talk to and I think deep down, he really wanted to help anyone who wanted to make use of his expertise for as far as I recall, he did offer the use of his work shop etc for free to a couple of members. Besides, diversity on the forum is always a good thing. It helps foster the dissemination of knowledge between us members and keeps our topic threads heterogeneous. Also, when I take into consideration that my grandparents don't even know how to power a laptop up, let alone post on a forum or navigate the web; I have to admire Sylvi for keeping up with technology and his knowledge of the internet etc.

Nope not one bit.

I do think he was a bit inflexible on some of his opinions; but overall I liked having him around and like I said, I think he did try to help AL members when he could.

I read in some posts where he had really tried to help others. as I remember once he invited a member to visit his place (in kolpity I think ) to help him out.

I agree with Kavvz with the comment of having diversity of the forum.
