Not to hijack, but there were lots of fun, goofy little features and quirky habits on the old boards - the signature files, the not-random-but-mysterious-in-methodology assigning of themed statuses to posters based on post count, the changing of user names to fit the seasonal themes... I sometimes miss the playful vibe that we once had. (There's still a lot of good-natured silliness that goes on in the various posts - as long as Satan's Hobbit is still around, I think we're safe there - but there was definitely a general vibe of "let's not take ourselves too seriously" that was fun. (Plus, you got to feel like one of the cool kids once you had figured out some of the esoterica. )
