I've heard mention of this many times before at Theoryland, and now it's in Zae's new greeting:

Ancients

The next group down from HotH. Also tend to be prolific posters, although some Ancients suffer from a mysterious disease. It sometimes happens that once an Ancient is raised, they disappear for a while, or forever. It really can be a blessing in disguise.
So, I'm happy to report that the vast majority of Ancients are hanging in there! Bolded names are still hanging around to bother us (even if they have only posted a few times since we moved to vBulletin), and non-bolded names are missing and presumed dead unless someone speaks for them.

when was the last time Callandor posted? I haven't seen him in forever.

But the last few years have a really high retention rate. Since 2005, 12/13 have stuck around. Pretty impressive. And I think Tigraine might have vanished before then... that right about when I joined in, and I have no memory at all of her.

All of this means TIME FOR NEW RAISINGS

He posted in this year's 9/11 thread.

He must have got the email about the hacking. He even posted...in the GW forum. :rolleyes:

Man, Terez has been Ancient since '06? Just goes to show you what a lousy contributor I am. I joined the old message boards like a couple of months after her, but she had like 10k posts and like 5-10 detailed theories. I had like 500 posts or something, and maybe a couple kinda half-assed theories...

Lurkers unite...!

Amateur! My "Moghedien is the DotNM" theory was full-assed, no doubt about that. Not even Frenzy dared to support it.

Oh yeah? I think one of my theories didn't even break the paragraph barrier, Tam probably posted it just out of pity (he's so benevolent). Callandor was too disgusted to even kill it, I think.

Oh, wait...that's not lurking if I'm here, posting...

So... not to be a huge drag, but I was always a fan of the main site... will we see any real regular updating, or can we just go ahead and bury the whole concept? Obviously the old days of daily updates on the posts are dead and gone (or maybe I've crafted that happy time in my head), but maybe a couple of times a week?

I think it needed Callandor to keep it alive. Who knew?

Tigraine was a dude I believe ;)

And all the Ancients who stick around usually become HoH...except when Lordy gets lazy :D

Yup, Tigraine is a dude.
