    Just letting folks know.. it's been like 6 months since I last tried to go there, and I clicked a link in OTAP, suddenly I'm allowed back in.

    Just thought I'd let the OTAP only folks know.

    I spend very little time in the main forum now. It's really gone downhill in the last year or so, IMO. It's too overmoderated. Threads are closed/merged/transferred too quickly and for no reason, and there are too many subforums.

    Most of the mods in the main forum are pricks too handing out bans for the slightest reason.

    OTAP rules :o

    it's funny once in a while in there...but it gets pretty old. Nothing like it use to be back in 2001-2002 days.

    This is interesting... I wonder why Fazle decided to open it back up... What's going to suck is, is if the damage was already done, and now OT is pay only in everyones mind... I know a lot of people who left. And if that did happen,Glen will be like "SEE? It doesn't matter if it's pay or not, we get the same amount of people!" and I'll be like ":hsugh:" and he'll be like "ban".

    apparently it's just a test this weekend.

    It was a pretty dumb idea to start charging to view/post. it scared everyone away who was really funny. oh well. at least the subforums remained free

    yeha I miss the old OT, I used to have an account in 00 but forgot pass and that email box expired so she was lost for ever... but from 00-04 were the golden days... after that it has started to lose it's interest... I still pay just to keep my porn access going and my PM box ready.

    Yeah, I started lurking in like October of 01, then joined in Jan. 2002... but didn't log in for a few months (@ college and needed to get a bunch of shit done) so I lost my old name, then had to re-join in '03

    Kind of curious too. It's nice to post on stuff that doesn't get much attention in the subforums.

    Hopefully it stays open?
