    Many posters 'of old' seem to have gone. Which ones do you miss and why?
    In particular I miss Lurkmuch, or was it Lurchmuch;), he was fairly local to me and we did tentatively arrange to meet at a pub in the Derbyshire Dales but he just seemed to disappear before we could firm up a date and time.
    I particularly liked his dry humour and his common sense posts.
    Rac and Nomad are the nearest in comparison IMO.

    There were some great posters on the forum 20 years ago. It was a real community then.

    Oh yes @BelleDuJour and @Marshall i couldn't agree more.
    There was a lovely poster who lived in Lincolnshire I think - had lived in the Caribbean if I remember right. She was a head. I met her at a meet. @marymoocow will remember her. Also a lovely woman who worked at Warwick university. Wish I could remember their names.

    And other heroes who got the push.

    I’ve only been on the forum for around three years. What made it more of a community? How was it different?

    The first rule of all internet forums is they're never as good as they used to be. The web was less constrained in the olden days of the late 1990s. Back then 'moderation' was just something one occasionally drank in.

    Are you quite sure they've run out of regenerations? I think not.
