Lightbulb Old thread revivals for new EAB members!

After seeing Rattus's post asking who Marz was, I thought that some of the new(ish) members to EAB should see some of the history of EAB & about the longtime members & "infamous" members of this board. However, I really have to give credit to Fred & Bloodwych who've discussed this topic before, so rather than take any credit,I suggest you look here instead....

For Fred's "The History of EAB"
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5621

And Bloodwych's great "Threads you considered Gems"
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4017

And another short though historical thread....
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=505

And last but no least, although not done by Marz himself, I think anyone who remembers him will appreciate this classic thread by Codetapper!!
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...ght=Robot+Wars

Maybe we should give thought to a "History of EAB"....-revive Fred's post & discuss it!!

Sadly, many early Cody threads have been lost forever, due to deletion by barbarians!

The discovery of the very first carved-in-stone EAB message thread. The news that New Zealand Story's Tiki The Kiwi was not a kiwi thread. And the more recent Cody's Amazing News Stories 1.

They exist now only in the memories of all who were there!

Here's a couple more threads to add....

"Game Endings" by Tim...
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...0&pagenumber=1

And another classic topic thread by Fred....
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...0&pagenumber=1

@Cody. Don't tell me that classic "1st posting" got deleted! That backdrop to it was so funky-surely RCK must have it somewhere!

EDIT: Just found an example from the archives of Akira & Marz engaged in another witty,intellectual debate!
C'mon Akira,you miss him don't you?!

http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1525

And Marz calmly reacting to a possible Miggy fault....
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1568

And here's a classic Akira thread "How does your game room look like?"

This is when Marz tried to return as RentACoke, after being banned, and Cody The White had to sacrifice his life for the good of the EAB Fellowship:

Nick Faldo's Golf - Ministry crack

(It all got nasty at the end, but it was all sorted out and everyone lived happily ever after! Er, except Marz)

I bet Rapman felt like a right idiot after jumping to Marz's aide without first getting all the facts, like his IP address and hostname, which the Moderators had before exposing who Rent-a-coke really was.

I wonder if we shall ever see Rapman again??

His reaction was extremely funny (to me anyway).

And this should be a lesson to us all, ALWAYS have the full facts before making an ass of yourself

Stick out tongue

@Ian. Everytime I read that thread, I think of The Simpsons episode where Homer's been banned from Moe's tavern & a well-dressed Homer-a-like character goes into Moe's the night after..
"Homer, who is theeese Homer?"

Thanks for that thread Cody, any further one's from the archives mods? Search your old threads/replies & see what's survived!

Found 3 more threads....

Steve's "The Amiga's most Bizarre games...
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1551

Another great Bloodwych thread "The EAB oldtimers thread"
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5628

And Twistin' talks about the "Birds 'N Bees"!!!
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2634

EDIT:
Also thought to add what must still rank as the most requested Amiga game to this day....
Riempe's "A tiny bit of Putty Squad news"...
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...0&pagenumber=1

John Twiddy, I'm sure there's some members here who'll happily volunteer to try & find your sourcecode files/disks etc.!
