Glad to see the old OG site rise from the ashes. Such an incredible site at the time and what a great community to be a part of. Had so many great times from there and met a lot of cool cats throughout it's run. Looking forward to checking out this site and sharing some knowledge and stories with everyone.
Some things from back in the day that came to mind as I was writing this. Those that were there probably remember some of these things.....
The Karma System. Remember the little green dots or if you were a member there long enough or with great threads/posts.... that LONG green line. Then of course.. the "Karma Bandit" came onto the scene and would hit people and take away 10-15 Karma points per swipe. lol That was a huge controversy at the time I recall. Does anyone remember who the Karma Bandit was? Correct guess gets a "K-bump" from me. Hahahaha
Where's ~S~? At one point, our leader ~Shabang went MIA for quite awhile. Can't recall if he ever resurfaced or not?
That crazy Russian cash cropper who would grow under 50,000 watts of HPS power in a HUGE warehouse in Russia somewhere. A friend of mine from the site actually befriended him on OG and went there to visit him. Wound up staying for a month and not only got to meet the man, but also see the OP and even work there for a couple of weeks when he was there. He was put in the "Trim room" with a bunch of Russians and work a few hours a day. There's more to that story but I'll leave the just out for the time being.
And of course all the characters from the site which made OG such a special place. Some of the members and friends that come to mind that some of you may recall: Dowzer, Smoothy, JEAST, BOG, Rez, Old Pink, Kryptonite, Biglove, and many, many others.
