What are your favorite memories of the phpBB era? My post combines the pre-Split and post-Split iterations of the phpBB forums, since they used the same forum software.

  • Finally becoming reasonably active on the forums (I had a fairly low post count on the IPB boards)
  • MFGG Wrestling's revival
  • Being pleasantly surprised to find MFGG alive and kicking after The Split
  • Interviewing lots of classic staff members for MFGG's tenth anniversary in 2011
  • Becoming a QC staffer and forum admin
  • Releasing games, especially Revenge of the Walrus and Cheerwine Deluxe 3
  • Playing awesome games like TSB2, Psycho Waluigi, Mushroom Pancakes, The Purple Coin, Legend of the Five Pendants, and Paper Mario 3D Land
  • Drawing Kirby badly
  • The 2015 PPP revival and the 2016 All That Post Palace
  • Meeting another MFGG admin in real life
  • Using MSN, AIM, Skype, and Discord to chat with various cool MFGGers
  • Other stuff I can't immediately think of

My favorite moment was when we were drawing comics in the forum game thread to continue a story. It was nice, seeing each of everyone's creativity and art styles.

I miss using GameMaker 8 and making Mario fangames with other people here back in 2010-2011. I don't have much time for that these days :(

That was fun indeed. Playing Terraria with Dustin, Miles, Cap'n Coconuts, FD, and the others was also one of my favorite MFGG-related things. We should do online multiplayer more often!

anyone remember the underused level environments topic from way back in early 2011? that topic was actually a big influence on the development of abducted toad
dont go looking for it though its got bad 12 year old me posts

both mfgg mafia games were also great

all those minigame competitions i used to enter

hey remember when i won my first music competition with a seconds-long track? that was pretty funny huh

oh man i just remembered, remember how we didnt have a general chat for like 2 years? that was weird wasnt it

remember when i used to speak in actual grammar

one of my favourite moments was when we got to see the dumb side of mfgg when SJG started. the other good times were:
>finding out that discord existed (that was a learning experience =-J)
>taking part in the sprite comps
>finding a small coding spark inside me (that one was unexpected)

I joined so I could post a bad joke to a topic about a dead Luigi's Mansion fangame. Good times.

Aside from that, Mario Boom and All That were fun times. The latter especially, since I remained in joke mode for quite a while after april fools since the forum admins forgot to fix my profile.

I also remember releasing the first screenshot of my very first fangame in 2014-ish? People were somehow excited about it even though it was far below the quality of anything else people showcase now.

Oh yeah MFGG mafia was a good time too
Also I think there was some sort of revival of competitions at some point. I could be remembering incorrectly, but I think for a period of time comps stopped then they were brought back and the number was reset or something? Whatever the exact scenario was, it was really fun because attendance of the comps was really high and everyone was encouraging each other throughout them. Of course right after that first round of comps attendance dropped drastically again, but hey it was fun while it lasted.

I dont remember much, aside from a few conflict threads I was in, Dog drama stood out to me for being comical. The other good things was the creation of the Skype group for MFGG. I do like the fact I made several acquaintances from here outside of the ASE Team and how it has helped me grow from there.

I'm probably going to miss the skins the most, after all you guys are moving over to MyBB but some of the skins may not get converted.
