I have been a Neowin member for almost 15 years, browsing my way back here during the Whistler days and joining afterwards. Things have changed a lot for me since then personally and career wise. For Neowin, I was a moderator back in 2005/2006. I only ever go to the front page daily or news but that is about it.

 

What have I missed around here? I remember a lot of the members back in the day who have most likely moved on. It is interesting to come by and check on things.

It's shocking to look back and realize how much time has passed.

There was the rebellion of '09, the coup of 2012, and more recently the political divide with Trump.

 

Ok, maybe only the last one happened. :laugh: It's been business as usual around here as far as I've noticed.

 

Welcome back. Do you think you'll be checking in to the forums more? There are plenty of good discussions going on, whether it be tech, real world news, or even just mindless banter.

Holy ###### it is Spyder!!! Awesome to see you are still around.

I recall a feature being able to see someone's name history. I guess that has been removed? It helped me A LOT even back when I was active way more.

Spyder is indeed the bees knees! And awww shucks, thanks Steve!

 

@matt95110 I am curious what your name was as well as I feel like I definitely recognize the Avatar funny enough!

 

That also makes sense why I no longer see the display name history but knew I once did! I also get why it would be removed. I am sure people just want a fresh start and to leave the past behind, etc. etc. New name new approach. Makes sense. It was incredibly helpful though as I was never good with names to begin with. Haha

Back in the day I was matt74441, for some reason. I have no idea why I changed it. I should change it back.
