"Old" Members
« on: March 13, 2011, 11:56:17 PM »
Hm, I was looking though the boards, and I found we had quite a few members that hadn't posted for ages. There are a lot of Forum Newbies, who only posted once, or twice, maybe with a question. But the only "established" members I can think of that haven't posted for a while are TommyT (Last active, January 16, 2011) and PJSim (Last active, October 29, 2010)
Can anybody think of any others?

TommyT joined the Coast Guard.  PJSim has moved on to other things, but will be welcomed back as a moderator if she ever chooses to return.

The Coast Guard? What is that, and why did it stop him from posting on the Forum? And I never realised PJ, was a mod :)

The Coast Guard is a branch of the military here in America.  They're mostly responsible for enforcing Maritime law in national waters, and are often involved in rescue operations off the coasts.  They're very similar to the Navy, except that the Navy tends to operate more in international waters while the Coast Guard operates more in American waters.

Ah, thank you Hosfac!
I see why he can't visit the Forum anymore, then. :(

In the UK the Coast Guard are normally a charity called the RNLI who run the Life Boats and rescue operations along the coast.

TommyT is in the U.S., though, so he's in the military as Hosfac explained.  Or he soon will be.  I don't know when he's supposed to start.

PJ was actually our first moderator from the Forum population.  She doesn't show up as a moderator now because I switched her back to normal access.  But as I said above, she can return to being a moderator any time she chooses.

That's one of the United States' Coast Guard's responsibilities too, although I wouldn't exactly call them a charity.  During times of war, they can fall under the Navy's jurisdiction, although I'm not sure how often this actually happens.

LlamaMama is doing other things.  She goes back and forth between Sims 3 and reading books.  She's in her reading books phase.  I don't know about RockinRobin, but I think you have the date wrong for her.

Nope, it's the date in the profile. Those 'old' members sure provided valuable info in past. I would like to see them here more often sharing their experience. I wonder, who's *maybe* going to be the next moderator? ;D There are lots of members here worth it.

I really miss Tommy T. He is such a creative builder and a great guy.  Lots of fun.  I'm glad he's in the Coast Guard though.  It's great employment, good benefits and helps keep our country safe both in peace and war time.  Living on the Oregon coast you can visit some of the old outposts and bunkers that were built to keep submarines from traveling up the Columbia river.  We frequently hear on our local news of the guard rescuing folks caught in a surge, sneaker wave or storm at sea.  There are some tricky areas where fishermen wind up in trouble too and it's always the Coast Guard to the rescue.

TommyT was a paramedic before enlisting in the Coast Guard.  Being a hero comes naturally to him.  :)

She had some real life things to deal with and is always welcome.  People have come and gone since I have been on here, which is almost two years.  Sometimes, real life situations causes some members or moderators to deal with whatever they need to.  With this forum getting as large as it is, it takes alot of time sometimes to go through these posts.  I, for one, hope these members and moderators come back, at one point or another. :)

I haven't seen mtglady in ages. In fact, Leto, Hosfic, and Salty Paws, are the only three moderators I've seen active. When did Saltpaws become a moderator? Did I miss it? Or has she always been?

Good luck to TommyT in the coastguard. It's literally the hardest branch of the military to get into.

I've seen mtglady recently - just yesterday, if I remember correctly. EDIT: She was on 4 hours ago.
Pam, Carl and Metro are on regularly, Hosfac, Salty, Schip, Leto85, gerrr00, and mtglady too.

What happened to Swede, as well?
