    I logged on just now and saw 4 active members: me, Pho'd Up, mtnbikerfred, and Shaggy. I had to check the date that it wasn't 2008!

    If the Steppie banner photo comes back it'll make my day.

    Hey Jason! Just so you know, I recently bought the forum and I'm planning on get this place active again. I have a few ideas on getting that done, but do you have any ideas also? :)

    I imagine he was referring to me. Understandable mistake given the context I suppose.

    But damn you're right, this is a helluva a trip down memory lane...I still owned a banshee and was sponsored last time I was on here...

    Best of luck getting the place running again Shaggy. I would never complain about seeing this place back in its former glory.

    I laughed when I saw your username and then your avatar today. I go by Shaggy as my username and my real name is Bryan. ;)

    Flashback..great memories of this site and meeting others which led to new adventures. With so much social media, STR was the first for me..even came across an old sticker recently.

    A lot of people have mentioned the chat box. It was a uniquely fun feature on here. While it may seem to draw traffic from the forums, I think more people lingered while using it, drawing traffic to the site and ultimately increasing forum activity because members commented on things as the saw them develop. Of course, if you combine my opinion with $20, you can buy a beer.

    Very true. It does give the members their questions answered instantly, and also is a good source of chatting among members. If its away to get the members back and have them stick around, I could add it.
