yep, all the OLD guys.. wow i was 26 when i started Xbox-HQ originally, That was in 2002, but i scrapped that one and started again in 2003. Before creating Xbox-HQ i used to run a satellite-tv an underground hacking website in australia and my first dreamcast site, DCONLY.. that was lame.

wow. getting old now huh.. nah, young mate, 30 years left in me i think before i retire.. hahah

Yeah it would be fun if Modgod, Dkoots etc. came back.

But I guess they moved on? I don't even see them on 360hq

i've been digging through some of the older threads and you're NOT kidding they've up sticks and flew the nest!
that's a shame but it seems to be the case regardless of site/community!
in consideration to neutrality/objectiveness, all it takes is an IRL situation (or change of heart) and that's it!
most of the time it isn't the case (site/user politics) but for the ones that do, all we can do is wish them well in their future endeavors!
you never, know, they may pop in to say hello?
i hope so, seen some interesting threads (and a COOL username shortacid)
..........
lets hope for another ten years!
(change is a fact of life but it doesn't mean i accept it or tolerate it! in context of course! "always a good day to die but NEVER a good day to lose a friend" shakespear)

Modgod left many years ago. dkoots i havent seen in ages. Some of the other staff who i wont mention their names got shipped off to afganistan etc, things didnt work out too well unfortunately for those guys.

I don't think you guys realize how many guys we did have. spanning both 360-hq and xbox-hq we had over 50 active staff.. Most still pop in, but come on, its not like they get paid! It's a big job to do this for a hobby, man if i didn't run and own HQ i could be living in a nice house on the beach, just put it that way. It's an expensive hobby, i knew this to start, but its what i do! Gaming and Hacking has been my life and will continue to be till the day i die.

Some guys just let their mrs/girlfriend put their balls in their purse. hahah not me.

ShortAceid and ENigma516 (better know as grapeape) are still around occassionally, they pop in on 360-HQ more than xbox-HQ. They know where i am these days hahah. Most of the staff from Xbox-HQ still have Xbox LIVE accounts and a HQ gamertag.. eg. HQ ShortAcid, HQ Enigmah516 and HQ shark2th. THe reason most guys went missing is because i moved onto Xbox 360 hacking.

cheers for the comments too guys, means alot. i wish everyone would return just like the old days but everything changes. I wish everyone well to.

^^ Shocked
not to go off subject but i can SERIOUSLY relate to that!
believe it or not, it's why i treat females the way i do...(never keep them long enough for anything meaningful)
apart from the sausage-dodgers (aka: lesbian/GAMER chicks) i've NEVER met a woman who didn't look down on me for my interests! (if they knew i posted on forums, they'd report me for kiddie-fiddling....YES that's what the tarts are like in the UK)
never been able to keep one for more than a week so i make sure i MOVE in quick THEN let them know that a relationship works BOTH WAYS!
(guess which way it ends in reality?)
well said!
it'll be a COLD day in HELL before i let ANY woman dictate to me what i can and can't like/DO!
(sooner live on my own and DIE alone than sacrifice my manhood! what's next? sitting down on the toilet to take a slash? don't answer that, it's all the rage in GERMANY!) Embarassed Rolling Eyes Crying or Very sad
...........
+1 for stating a truth, a STIGMA/stereotype that hopefully becomes a thing of the past?! (not holding my breath there)

I second seriouslycgi's idea. That'd be a great way to generate interest back in the site.

forahobby, you're becoming a geezer. =P

10 years sure is a milestone, it's really amazing seeing how active the network still is.

It's funny to think almost 5 years ago, I modded my first xbox I had bought from a pawn shop long ago then found this place and was amazed of what all I could do with the little black box! Sadly, that xbox doesn't work anymore though I keep it around since it has a sentimnental value to me. Smile

Also, just to throw this out there if you're ever needing a programmer don't hesitate to ask.
