    Secondaccount needs to take a look at the postings of 2004 before decrying the modern era again.

    Thrasher and Big Brother blatantly never did, so maybe it just doesn't happen. And also Happy Birthday!

    The townie thread is a nice fear tinged trip down memory lane.

    Reminds me of all the fun times as a skater in the mid-90's, constantly looking over your shoulder anticipating the next townie attack.

    The horror of finding yourself alone in a townie filled train carriage, or the look of fear on everyone's faces as a group of townies descend from nowhere on an unsuspecting skate park.

    Using the word townie seems weird now. What is a townie now? Do they exist? I get the impression that getting beaten up for being a skateboarder doesn't happen these days?

    Amusingly, in that particular instance yes (Snide Clothing).

    Received a phonecall to the old Oxford office along the lines of "what do you think of our latest ad?"

    "Do you want the honest answer?"

    "Yes."

    "Okay - it's probably one of the worst adverts that I've ever seen but I can guarantee that people will still talk about it 10 years from now."

    Yeah the Internet is so soft and manicured these days - back then (only 14 years ago) it was filled with spam/vitriol/idoicy that you rarely see anywhere now.
    Funny insight into the 'safe space' thing I guess

    If anyone wants to - it's dead easy to bring back other stuff from the Network26 days.
    Just go to archive.org - enter the network26.com URL then click on the top bar where it shows that the forum was archived shows as little graph-type thing).
    Page will reload with a calendar - select any of the dates on the calendar that indicate when the forum was archived (dates will have a green circle on them).
    You can then go into an archived version of the forum on that date.

    Is this the old 'My brother logged in to my account! That wasn't me!' thing that you see?

    I much prefer the classic "I don't go on there, someone told me about it" whenever I get IRL shit for something someone has said on here.

    I never knew the OG N26, I joined when it was already N26 2.0, in 2005. I feel like an e-grom.

    Ha not quite, i'd be stoked if his posts were mine. I thought this post was particularly powerful and a good representation of the scene at the time.
