      I gave you those sometime last month since you've been friendly, and one of the active members on here lately. Congratulations!

      so it takes 5 years for a regular to get any kind of bone lol?

      Eh, other regulars have gotten roles before this. Not sure why Vini fell though the cracks.

      You have obviously earned that. You should accept it with grace.

      I'll tell you why, most regulars who join in and after 2014 never got anything. To be honest, one of the reasons I distanced myself is that I felt that there was some kind of elite club that we, the 2014 gang, could never be part of. Most regulars don't get roles or are even acknowledged as anything really. The forums died because they were centred around the old cliques and back then, if you were not part of the clique, you were likely not part of anything. But don't let that bitter man bother you, I'm just feeling grumpy.

      And now, with medals gone, it truly feels like we were thrown away.

      "The forums died because they were centred around the old cliques and back then, if you were not part of the clique, you were likely not part of anything."
      And you came to that conclusion because of... Roles? Or rather, the lack thereof?
      Actually, never mind. We had our days of glory and now we slumber, presumably forever.
      That's all there is to it.

      Sorry, I let anger control my words. The anger is external, but some unpleasant memories came from this discussion and they fuelled it further. To answer your question, roles don't have anything to do with it. If you read carefully, what I found unpleasant was that there were elite groups of people and it was impossible to integrate. But it wasn't that bad, I just let my unpleasant memories fuel an external source of anger.

      Yeah, after a while it definitely became more difficult for new users to join. I don't really think it was an "elite club" though, so much as just that the community became progressively more close-knit to the point where it became more and more difficult to actually join the community. It was just how things went, somehow
