As I was saying...

Post by Phlashman »

So where were we?

Hi Everybody.

OK you lot. It's 2020 and it's been a few years. I miss you all (* with a few exceptions :) ).

So Slicker post a meme thing on twitter: https://twitter.com/Born2beSlicker/stat ... 4934428677 and it twanged my cold heart. With the new consoles just round the corner I thought I'll throw up a quick old school phpBB forums and see if any of you guys want to shit post again?

We're all older, the worlds a bit of mess but BXB was undoubtedly something good and it might be something fun for us right now. This might be a huge mistake, I don't know if anyone wants it or not, I don't know if there'll be enough traffic to keep the forum fresh in an age of twitter, facebook and reddit. I just thought it might be a bit of fun.

I've recreated just the basics but could add more depending on what people want/need. Dunno if it'll be a new forever thing or just a temporary attraction.

A few points
:arrow: I don't have the old rules but they still apply.
Basically, don't be a nob. The banhammer is ready to be used for any reason.
:arrow: Please don't be a nob.
Don't register under someone else's old username, and try and use your old username if you had one. We're all old now, we don't need more confusion.
:arrow: New members are more than welcome
Feel free to invite people. I'm sure we've all made some awesome friends recently. Make new people feel welcome.
:arrow: No penguin games
:arrow: No fake eBay posts

Lastly I want to give a shout out to Ben (hallben) and Richard (Colonel Red) they've been doing the quality work they used to do for the front page over at https://www.experiencekills.co.uk/ go check out their podcast.

So whats up?

Also it's been a while since I've done this, so if something ain't working let me know.

Holy crap. I had this really weird dream that BXB closed down. Like, people gave up and moved on. Then there was a referendum on the EU, Trump was President, there was a deadly virus that infected you if you breathed. Also the new Xbox was a huge brick?

Weird. Anyway, check out the next podcast.
It’s nice to see you again 💘

Yeah, none of those things happened.

Welcome back to early 2016!

As I’m now a (allegedly) mature student, I’d be quite happy with another lockdown sometime close to the 10th of November. I mean it’ll delay me qualifying, but that’s a price worth paying to get a few weeks uninterrupted gaming in isn’t it? :D

Physically couldn't register under my old username but BXB is back so I am not going to complain :lol:

I'm working from home so I've had zero lockdown time off. But I've blocked off sometime from Nov 10th and it's going to live in my office.
