    Default EoFF Sure has changed

    No more Ciddies, no more contributors or editors, no more reviews or opinions pieces on the frontsite, no more Wonder Square, no more Food Board, no more Shorty calling us nerds, no more Forsaken Lover and his anti-FFVIII threads, no more Supermillionaire and his weirdness, no more Sephex and his bad jokes, and sober Jinx.

    *sniff* I don't want your suffering!
    I don't want your future!

    You could've made a post like this at any point in the site's history. It has never stayed still.

    I might be wrong but even if EoFF suddenly got 100 active posters for the rest of the year, I don't know if we'd have the Ciddies again. I'm super nerdy and checked out the average age of our current top 10 posters and our top 10 posters 15 years ago, in 2004. Right now it's 31 and back then it was 18. What an 18 year old wants from an online community is very different from what a 31 year old wants. We're all growing and changing. Or at least, I am. I was a moron back then and now I've blossomed into an idiot.

    The only person to make both top 10 lists is of course BoB. I came very close but was #11 in 2004...!

    I could see us doing a version of the Ciddies, but it would be super pared down. Most of us don't need to cock wave in front of our internet social group so much anymore.

    How about we just take the Ciddie we want.

    I claim Best Writer and I'll fight anyone who wants to take it from me!

    Actually, I'm not sober, I'm just not drunk all the time anymore. I was sober for 6 months until my grandma died, then I started drinking again. But I drink much less in both quantity and frequency than I used to do.

    I've also come back to the forum after a very long hiatus (mostly due to my excitement for the remake release) and I was very happy to see familiar usernames still posting.

    You're probably more likely to see familiar faces than new ones, I would guess.

    EoFF used to be where all the younguns hung out, but now they're all on Read it and Instantgram. Those whippersnappers.
