..When you can honestly remember seeing over 150 people on at once on WON.
..If you were around to see the updates come out on Sierra's webpage (I saw the last one come out, which was still a very long time ago)

... When you think "Plymouth", you think of the colony, and not the real world place.
... When you think "Eden" (if you know the definition of that word), you'd think the colony instead of paradise, utopia, etc.

I remember a vague wisp of the time that I posted there.
A few years ago, I accidentally discovered that I posted there once. On the old UBB. Which was before he got his newer, and last, board system.

by Ezekel (that's me)
...You see your walls covered in a purple computer display (the blight).
...Your dreams go along the lines of being a Savant.
...Your family blew up the house to try and get your attention away from your computer screen.
...You only eat waffles if they are shaped either in the Plymouth insignia or the Eden insignia.
...You start to respond to the name Axen Moon (or for girls Emma).
...You call your computer Frost.
...You put your computer+screen+keyboard into a savant-shaped box.
...You sent in Outpost questions to "the people vs..."
...Your questions are read on "the people vs..." - thats me
...You utter phrases such as "not if a meteor had hit the last agridome of New Terra".
...You believe you are a member of Eden/Plymouth.
...You start wearing t-shirts, trousers and pyjamas (etc...) with OP2 vehicles printed on them.
...You go to a party, and get a bit tipsy and start shouting "the blight is approaching!". - my mate did that
...You have a whole harddrive dedicated to OP2.
...You have built a lynx with lego and a panther with mechano/steel tech. - I did that
...You hijack a car factory, change the designs so that you get a working laser lynx (complete with cup holder, for the coffee needed to keep you awake for OP2)
...You build a to-scale CC 150%of a life size model.
...You build a real, working CC.
...You utter "orbital insertion complete" for no apparent reason. - me again
...You program a virus that has a earthworker busy building pipes between folders/files.
...You have a selfmade OP2 screensaver. - I had this on my old computer, I still got to get it onto this one.
...You have folders all over desktop saying things like "devol" "maps.vol" "op2demopostoriginal" etc...
...You have The Outpost poster that came in the Outpost box copied, and used as a wallpaper for your room.
...You have a laser beam in your doorway, that when broken announces "Savant series computer activated".
...You respect the game so much you go out of your way to make sure words like Savant, Eden and Plymouth are capitalised
...You threw a brick at your computer screen when you recieved the email/WON message/Sierra webpage saying that Sierra stopped supporting OP2.
...When your screen is fixed, you cause Sierra's server to crash due to so many emails asking them to re-support the game. - I did that the moment I found it out (Jan 2000) twice over . they then answered by saying if I didn't stop sending them emails they'd ignore me and my emails.
...You go out of your way to improve ratings for the game.
...You have pictures of all the ppl who gave it a bad preview, and you use them as dartboard targets.
...Having done the last one, you find that simply by thinking of these ppl you can get a bullseye in a darts match from 50M.
...You have a CD drive dedicated to holding the OP2 CD.
...In you biology exams, when you recieved a question about the virus you had done a case study in class on, you spent the whole time writing about the affects of the Blight and how it was possibly created.
...You start to write graffiti on walls that says things like "I am the tiger king, your puny lynxes shall be destroyed!!!"


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



By CK9
-You stop everything you're doing just to get any updates.
-You stop playing all the other games you like because you have spent the last year trying to play one person. (I have a strange mind and this never happened)
-You see the screensaver after playing for an hour or two and refuse to touch anything because "the computer needs sleep"
-You spend your whole night coming up with a foolproof way to penitrate anyones defences with little or no trouble.
-You create this thread to see how many people will actually respond.(sorry)
-You end up having to run away before anyone reads your post


this is a piece of forum history that I thought had been destroyed
