Just been having a look through some of the old threads, seen a few names that brought back memories and wondered...where are they now?

Names like @svenc, @Waxlion, @AlanP and @Larry, i miss Al (Larry) and his huge photos, i remember trying to explain to him how he needed to reduce the size before he linked to them cos it took for ever for them to load, Sven (Svenc) i can't even remember what happened to him he just vanished, Waxy was always good for a laugh, i've tried to find him on FB but the only name like his in the area of Wales he lived is a cabbie and it isn't him, AlanP, he was another one who used to be on here a lot, he also seemed to vanish without a trace...

So many members have come and gone since i first joined the forum back in August of 2001, some are missed, some have sadly passed and some improved the forum when they left/were banned.

Any others that spring to mind folks?

Sven still posts on Facebook though his health hasn’t been good for a long while.

Glad to hear he's still around, sad to hear he isn't to good :(

Bloody hell BB, him and that soddin canal boat... i remember his bad luck with that, the bank going on the cut and his boat going through it and ending up in the field!!

D'artist hasn't posted for a while either. I sent him a set of darts a while ago and not heard from him since.

I sure he posted once last week then gone again but I could be wrong. He’s a Sunderland supporter so could be hiding
He hasn't been logged in since May this year.

Apache is another one and Dooby, brave man was Gav, he stuck his fingers in my boots at the first Elvington fish-in to try and be clever by sticking them up on the windmill.... i wasn't even brave enough to have them in the kip with me let alone stick my fingers in them lol

DD is a proud Catholic man mate, he isn't a fake "follower" he lives his life by his holy book so yes, i would expect him to follow the good samaritan path and help those in need!

I liked the man seemed genuine, and now I’ve followed in the footsteps of the lord I might be redeemed 😇🙏🏻
