Those generations, as I see them:

  • Jay and Acy and all the people from way back when (ie, anyone I looked up to when I joined; I came in right as Jay left)
  • My generation, of which I may well be the only person remaining; I've lost track.
  • The generation after me, I tend to class as being around the time Luthien/Mari joined the Board (she's gone now).
  • Possibly one in between.
  • The generation in which people like Err... and so on joined.

Of course, the rising generation is coming up fast; certain people have made a very big impression while not being around for long, and to be honest, it's how big you make yourself, not the length of time you're around, that gets people seeing you as an oldbie.

    • Now now, I think he wants to be wise and venerated. Let's respect Grandpa. XD JulyFlame (who should be taken out back and shot.)
      • I can see why, it's a rare thing to be wise and venerated in a land that thrives on insanity and pain. pigeonarmy 13:16, 10 March 2008 (NZT)
    • Ooh, you young whippersnappers! In my day there weren't none of this cheek, I'll have you know! Grumble grumble grumble... Ye Olde Huinesoron 10:49, 10 March 2008 (GMT)
      • Brr. There's just something innately wrong with you doing that sort of impression. XD JulyFlame 10:09, 10 March 2008 (CDT)
        • Maybe imagining it with the accent? *snerfle* Sara
          • Something like that. JulyFlame probably should still be shot.20:21, 10 March 2008 (CDT)
            • And imagining him with a long, flowing white beard and a cane...*giggles* Sara, who doesn't think July should be shot
              • No, see, that'd make it better than the way I was thinking, as I am absolutely demented. JulyFlame 23:59, 10 March 2008 (CDT)
                • So you're thinking of a young man with an English accent and an old man's voice? *snerfle* Sara
                  • Only the first. Which makes it utterly ridiculous. XD JulyFlame 23:59, 10 March 2008 (CDT)
                    • I WANT that soundfile...XD Sara
                      • What? JulyFlame 02:24, 11 March 2008 (CDT)
                        • A young man with a British accent saying, "Ooh, you young whippersnappers..." completely deadpan. Sara
                          • Well you're not getting it from me. Huinesoron 14:42, 11 March 2008 (GMT)
                            • It seems you are out of luck there, Sara. Thankfully.JulyFlame 10:02, 11 March 2008 (CDT)
                              • Awwwwwww...XD Sara

And then there are those of us who consider themselves to be "old newbies" or "new oldbies", depending on how close to either status they are. XD Sara the Not-So-Very-New-Anymore

I swear, we run through writers faster than we run through agents. Maybe we need some sort of reward, like an oldbie-of-the-month thing? The Marquis de Sod 22:40, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
