    Just noticed my account is 11 Years old. Saw a picture on Facebook of AJ and Drew Tetz using a Kickside and Hitman.

    Time just doesn't stop. Kind of wish this forum could be brought back to like how it looked like before.

    <- this emoticon makes me think of Luke Vader. I think he used it a lot.

    Anyway always stopping by every year just to say hi!

    Yep, time moves on. I'd really like to see this forum reborn, but it seems people have moved on. Sadly Mike's passing had a large effect. Some have moved on to another forum, but a lot just went away never to be seen again. Sorry to see that. Thanks, Jeff.

    So many good times here. I wish it would come back. I keep coming back hoping everyone will just be here.
    If I could only have one super power, it would be the power to have all the powers I want!

    I still check in here occasionally and the chat is still alive (thanks to Ricks mostly).. it's mostly idle but everybody there still checks in now and then.
    You can argue with me, but you'll still be wrong.

    It's nice to go back and revisit old conversations or observe old friendships. Time moves fast of course, but it's nice to know that the past can be revisited. Time moves fast but the good times last :)

    I blame these new fangled websites like facebook and youtube and instagram! Why... back in the day, we had to actually download videos, over dialup! and we were glad for it too! ...But seriously, Just got back from worlds and there were lots of familiar faces from the older days. It's crazy that it's been over 10 years and how much has changed in that time, and how many yoyos have come out in that time! (or in the last year...)

    The chat is still up and going (kinda!) freenode Web IRC (qwebirc)
    or
    irc.freenode.net 6667 ##theyo if you use a client (like andchat)
    if no one says anything, start saying peoples names so it'll beep their clients.

    Let's make TheYo great again! (yes I know how cheesy that is)

    Hey Ricks and everyone, I don't yoyo much anymore but I busy it out for the kids at work. I too sometimes log on hoping that everyone will miraculously be around. This forum helped me through a really tough part of my life.

    Hope everyone is doing well

    Hey Durfee, good to see you come around. If more people just "dropped in" from time to time, we could start a movement here...

    Its kind of interesting how I would check out all the yoyo forums as the first thing that I do everyday and it transitioned to checking once every few months.

    I'm still at that stage. Mornings consist of reading the news and yoyo forums.

    Hey, it's the new guy.

    It is good to see everyone who has posted in this thread is still around in some capacity.

    RIP YoMike

    Bumping this up and replying for a 3rd time as my post keeps getting deleted....

    I stopped yoing at least 5 years ago. A few days ago I picked up my OG Grind Machine 2 from the Project Red Alert days (the one with the fragile walls) and gave it a few throws. I don't recall throwing was so relaxing now as it was back then.

    I can't believe it's been almost 10 years since I signed up here. This was the first forum I was on outside of a single car forum back then. I used to check this forum everyday when I woke up.

    I must say I did lose interest in this place after Mike passed away. The energy and enthusiasm he had for this place was contagious.

    It's nice to recognize the name of almost every single person posting on here. Too bad Luke Vader is no longer around, I loved the work and repairs he did for me back then. This place really left a lasting impression on me. I guess I'll drop by every now and then to say hi!

    Wowie. I'm thankful for all the growing up I did thanks to this community. Really glad I decided to check this forum on a whim...
    Nice to see some familiar faces.
    Best wishes to all of you <3
