JGJTan Icon : (05 July 2018 - 10:07 AM) So this has been a while! It's @jgjtan and @leftyy here having a nostalgia trip. We hope you all have been having a great time so far! Miss you, be back in another 5-10 years. (Or find me on social media -- it's not that hard.)
MoldyRaven Icon : (07 November 2017 - 10:03 AM) Back again after 14 years! Good to see this still up.
X Zolon Icon : (22 October 2017 - 04:54 PM) Polo.

ticktockclok Icon : (08 October 2017 - 11:26 PM) Just thought of this place, and figured I would try to log in. I last posted 10 years ago. Hello to anyone out there - especially those from way back!
Res Icon : (06 October 2017 - 03:11 AM) As well as things can be, good to hear from you all :D!!! Much love all around.
X Zolon Icon : (05 October 2017 - 05:02 AM) Strange. I was thinking about it around the same time. Just didn't come back until now. Hope everyone is well.
Glammeress Icon : (16 July 2017 - 12:48 AM) Just thinking about this place, like out of nowhere. Hope everyone is well.
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 04:07 PM) Not bad. Just finishing up grad school. Which means I am looking for distractions from writing. :p
Phieta Icon : (09 July 2017 - 05:06 AM) Still flying, so to speak. How goes with you?
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 02:42 AM) I am even more amazed someone replied to this in less than a few month timescale. Hi! How goes?
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:43 PM) He does log into GW every month or so to retain leadership, so that's something
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:42 PM) There are several of us! Several!
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:33 PM) I was actually hoping to get in touch with Cspace since its been forever. But it looks like our old leader is lost to the void.
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:29 PM) In a moment of pure nostalgia, I remembered this site. Seeing any shouts from this year is insane.
asyluman Icon : (17 January 2017 - 02:45 AM) i only JUST started playing FFVIII
asyluman Icon : (17 January 2017 - 02:45 AM) woah are people still here
Phieta Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:05 AM) Apparently I joined SeeD 14 years ago today.
Dragonman Icon : (10 September 2016 - 02:29 AM) Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven
x.. Icon : (13 July 2016 - 01:14 AM) idk. both of those are complicated questions.

What's an event horizon? When you face a black hole, it's the point of no return... A distance from the singularity at which even light can never escape. If you cross the event horizon without being ionized, you will experience CurvedSpace just before your atoms are torn to pieces by tidal forces. It's totally worth it, especially if you're correctly reconfigured on the other side.

The "Event Horizon" is what I'm calling our new entrance site.

What Changed

- The portal was replaced by our new site. May as well state the obvious at the top...

- I'm trying to link all the important content to appropriate threads. See the "Discuss This Page" link at the top? When you see that, I want to hear from you! If you have questions, comments, or ideas to improve what you're looking at, please join the discussion!

- We have simpler and updated rules.

- While the latest posts aren't displayed on the homepage at the moment, the link provided there will give you a more accurate list. Active members have probably noticed that random threads mysteriously disappeared from the old homepage, which should not be the situation anymore.

- The links at the top should make it easier to find everything on CurvedSpace. If you want to get somewhere immediately, instead just click the links near the bottom. If the links at the top do not work, please check that a browser extension isn't somehow interfering with them.

- The fader is still here. Really. Look, over there on the homepage! Check the forums now and then for an opportunity to put stuff there.

- The forums are full-screen again. Yay! Some parts of it weren't meant to be squeezed...

- We have just one chat applet again, but this time it's just what was the "advanced chat". If you're serious about IRC chatting, I would recommend the use of an IRC program, but the provided applet should work for everyone who has a recent version of Java.

What's Coming

- A significant update to the forums!

- A content site. Publish your own guides, comics, jokes, or pretty much whatever else along those lines.

- A mobile version of CurvedSpace.

Looking forward to the mobile version, as I now do most of my browsing on a 1024x600 netbook... didn't measure, but I'm assuming the site is optimized for 1600x1200 now? I like the look but it doesn't scale down nicely. Or at all. Can't really complain though; most of us are gamers after all, a bigass desktop monitor is more or less expected. arcadefreak.gif

...there's no obligatory RS character in the banner anymore though? sad.gif

Also, I now have 1px of horizontal scroll on the forums, where I had none before. bluetongue.gif
Those who will remember, will speak fondly of the warm morning breeze.
