We're all just nostalgic people trying to keep a dead franchise alive in our own way.

We're old, we reminisce about the past.  ;D

CVDungeon 2021 revival WYA?

In all seriousness I think some kind of event or change should happen this year... SOMEThing big should happen. I don't think our potential to be an active forum is gone just yet.

So long as we keep showing up, it'll be around. Forums are dependent on the people that frequent them after all.

Indeed, I feel like a LOT of attention currency's been directed at FaceCrap and awesome-in-its-own-way Reddit for ages.  For my part, as I moved through the 2010 decade, my time, attention, and energy went beyond forums, which I had A BALL with during those long-cold heydays. 

Some years back (when I was converting my Flash to streaming video) I had a sweet stretch of free time and energy I made the best of, but as Life moved on, compounded, complicated, and bla-bla-bla, wah-wah-wah...that was that.  The CVDF for me has always been more of a place to enjoy CV and less a place to be vulnerable about goings-on on my end, so unless I was aware of some CV News I wouldn't be seen for a while. 

& since AIM got pwnd by Face's Messenger & I've got my own bones to pick on that platform, I'm not often in touch with fellow CV Heads, lest I've got their numbers.  (On that note: to the 2000-decade RSU|ICVD gang, it'd be fun to shoot the shit about CV or Life in general.  Hit me with your digits in a PM!)

I do drop in for the 7|15 shoutout when I remember.  19 years out we probably have a couple 16-year-olds wondering what all that annual fuss is about--at this point it's merely a reminder of funner, simpler days (in hindsight, of course; it was a pain in the ass for those in situ).  So yeah, that happened in 2020. :p

Shoutout to Sindra for keeping our love for CV alive on the 'Tube and 'Camp

& that's my madd ramblings for now.  8) 8) 8)

I posted some fanfics.

People hated me.

Everyone whined about some mobile games I guess.

That new Getsu Fuuma was announced and Konami is confirmed for this year's E3. Maybe we'll finally get something that isn't a mobile game.

Nah, we like you. It's more of an affectionate "Pls delete this♡"
Can't guarantee for people outside of dungeon tho.
You're alright.

Aside from being promoted to a senior sandwich artist at Subway, you haven’t really made much headway in writing compelling stories set in the CV universe of Wallachia lately

Furthermore, I don’t believe you love waffles as much as your username suggests. Can you prove me wrong?

2020 was awful, but this forum definitely helped make it more bearable. Keeping my mind busy on my project then having a place to post about it here definitely helped fight off the cabin fever. While everything else around me was changing (for the worse), this place seemed to be one of the only things that had a sense of normalcy.
