I'll still come back every now and then as long as it's up.
I mirror this sentiment. Although I never post due to a very busy life, I am still ninjaing my way in and out of here on a regular basis. I would love to see this place filled with activity again one day. I am very much impressed that this ship has kept a loyal skeleton crew to keep her afloat all this time while everyone else is on indefinite shore leave. (Metaphors, because they're artsy)
Although that shouldn't come as a surprise if you really think about it - ever since it's early days as thepurplecube.org, the entire site was a labor of love by the community and it only kept growing through genuine hard work and sheer determination. I was honored to be a small part of it; you guys are awesome.
I think labs is right, 128bit still has potential to take on a new purpose and I would love to help with whatever project we come up with next.
(To labs' rough suggestions: We've never had true requirements regarding registration and it will always stay that way - no forced reg or activity quotas.)
I know that 128bit.me is still a very useful resource for some, despite Megaupload being taken out. The console modding scene hasn't progressed much in recent years, so perhaps it's time to expand upon the subjects that 128bit focuses on beyond classic gaming. Alternatively, a new approach to providing relevant content may be what we need. I'm just throwing some thoughts out there, I'm sure someone may have an actual idea worth playing around with. If we start on something new, I'll definitely be here to actively help. =)
Whatever the case, this forum taught me a lot and you guys are all awesome. (You know who you are) I hope the site can continue to surprise us.
PS: Speaking of surprising, this is a belated notice but this site made it to a five year anniversary last year. It exploded in 2009 though, so perhaps now this community has reached it's five year anniversary this year?
