    I put so little effort into my profile, and probably haven't updated it since the last time Cara changer her 'AMV of the month'. :giggle: Might try and do something about that. :p:

    [EDIT] Aww, didn't take long for hockham jaynsaw to get banned! :zomg:

    What strange language has invaded our thread? :zomg: We do have a second thread specifically for off-topic chat, just so you know. :yes:
    Mod says it's okay :pierre: :lol:. Shame hockham got banned - I could learn so much from him . Unfortunately, it was an inevitability :sadnod:

    I just had a look a Nirgillis' profile too, another cool profile.
    Why thank you . I was bored last summer and spent a long time reading internet comics . There used to be a TSR award for best profile, so there are some pretty decent ones around :yep: . Shame the award was stopped really

    I'm just glad the thread was (briefly) active enough to justify linking to the off-topic thread again! Several years back it was essential to separate the chat from the anime posts, questions and recommendation requests, because they kept getting buried under spam. :p:

    I miss the best thread award, back then we always had enough active members to ensure the Anime Society was among the nominations.

    We're still in the Top 5 groups by member count on paper, though. :king5:

    [EDIT] I also got a personal nomination for Best Sig in 2008 (wish I remember what it looked like at the time!), and Best Oldie in 2009 (what does that make me now!?). Failed miserably in the voting, however. :proud:

    Why did he get banned? Was it because he was posting off topic? I hope it wasn't my fault. How long will he be banned for?

    Just in case you didn't know, Kuroko no Basket is still ongoing (the 3rd season is airing now every Saturday).

    I haven't seen Slam Dunk but if you want something different I would recommend Haikyuu (volleyball). Just don't expect Kuroko style ridiculous powers:lol:.

    Haha! He wasn't banned for off-topic discussion :nah: . Don't worry, if we implemented that rule, about 99% of users would be banned, myself included! . I can't say much about his position, but he shouldn't have been posting in the main forums at all :nah:

    Ever thought it was time to consolidate the two? :ninja: . Let them both run their course then only set one up again in the future? Might stimulate more conversation having it all in one place than diluted over two threads :dontknow:

    Every time I try and let the chat thread die, an inactive oldie resurrects it. :p: I never really thought about asking for it to be locked or merged, since it isn't doing any harm, just a relic of our former glory days. :moon: I've been allowing off-topic chat in this one for years, though it's never gone on as long or in as much depth as that personality test discussion! :zomg:

    This thread is likely to end first, but if we were to make the current 'chat' thread the new 'all-purpose' thread when it ends, I'd want the 'chat' part removed from the title at least. :beard: Possibly control over or edits done to the first post as well, to include the spoiler/illegal links warning from this one (though how many people actually read that, I've no idea). In all likelihood an all new thread would be easier and less confusing.

    You should still watch it. I've read the manga but the anime is still great, it's about 8 episodes from finishing.

    Ok I thought so. What did he do that was so bad that he wasn't supposed to post on the main forums?



    I know you said you can't say much about his position but there's no harm in trying lol.

    Why do you think it quietened down?

    Personally, I use Reddit for episode discussion and such. Usually just post here pre/mid/end season.

    A lot of the core members who were active at the time seemed to drift away, due to changes in their circumstances (i.e. they got lives, I didn't :proud: ). Just found one of the old chat threads, a quick look at who posted shows how few of them are active now.

    As for why so few new members post, or stick around, I haven't a clue. I lose track of how many new members I've accepted this week alone, easily in the double figures (and I send out 'welcome PMs' with a link to this thread, so it's not that they haven't found it). But most of the new people who actually post are completely different to the ones who join via the groups page. :s:

    Its interesting you should post about new members not hanging around. I'm a usergroup mod and we get the exact same thing (albeit we're nowhere near as popular, large or active as anime) in that people join then never return. Actually to be fair that's what I did

    I think that's a trend on the site as a whole now. You always see new members pop up and disappear quickly. Although I barely post outside of the Year 13 thread so I don't really know that many people on here.

    I finished Lucky Star yesterday, one of the most enjoyable anime I've ever seen. Just a lot of fun overall. Might start Trigun next, I've heard good things about it

    I haven't posted in a while because of exams

    But has anyone seen Hunter x Hunter? I finished it some time ago and man is it brilliant! So much fun!

    Also watched Neon Genesis Evangelion which was crazy. So weird.

    Cowboy Bebop was really fantastic! And the movie is insane.

    Finished Shinsekai Yori which was really good, especially the ending.

    Finally got around to finishing death parade, another good series.

    Another was also a fun series, not as good as some of the others I've listed, but still pretty decent.

    So.... Yeah..... I saw quite a lot of stuff since this last time I posted(which was a long time ago).

    Lucky Star definitely goes on my 'obsession' list :lol:
