"Well hi there, is that not Bel (ana) Guess you remember me.

Hi there. smiley - smiley I had to go to your page in hope of finding out who you are.

I'm no longer on h2g2, I only came here today to look for one of Gnomon's entries.

So, if I understand it correctly, you were known here as TiT before?

Ah, I just found that page, and I see you posted only two weeks ago there.

Dear me, if that isn't a blast from the past, I don't know what is. smiley - biggrin

Since you said you'd like to take on your guru hat again, I take it you've found out how to post and read in the one and only skin (i.e. brunel)? I think that even guide ml still works in the old skins, but then I wouldn't know, I haven't written anything here for years. smiley - smiley

Cool old Guy smiley - cogs running at writing speed
"My personal space is (again) more an anachronical sequence of my activities rather then an actual introduction. smiley - biggrin

I thought _the_ problem with HooToo was not beeing known on the InterWeb as a social site anyhow.
On arriving at my accounts I sooner then expected found out not only the community has vanished they (the content provider) also released a Captcha smiley - monster to haunt any contributors.
Only later finding out there is no community (compared to any other 'social' site) as well we are only (exclusively) to post positive messages.

I am patiently waiting and studying for any sensible solution to my (and according to the state of community some more) situation regarding the house rules. Some of the aspects The Powers That Be did not appreciate can be found in reading between the lines in the announcements. However I can not read minds enough to comprehend all their actions. "

Traveller in Time smiley - tit sorry for the late reply (more then two hours!)
"Yes, it is me, sorry to hear you have departed smiley - sadface

Well, you may notice my current stated of delayed postng smiley - weird.

That is also the mean reason not to post too frequently, I merely disrupt conversations instead of contributing to them. smiley - nur"

What the hell is going on? Are you on premod, and if so, why?

I know why I'm no longer part of the remains of a formerly nice community.

Ah, so your posts have appeared now. Don't worry about posting here, as it's just you and me (and the mods) reading, you don't disrupt any conversation. smiley - smiley

Hey, are you on any social network, like Twitter or facebook?

You can find me on twitter (although I'm not often there) as belanah2g2 (a moniker I very much regret now, but alas, it can't be changed).

Cool old Guy smiley - cogs not worried about any posting
"Actually not about disrupting any conversation either, it is just my threshold to post getting raised. Any posting I make is to inform and or help. The latter beeing the domain of the Official Volunteers reduces near any posting to useless.

Anyways, I do not use any other 'SM' site smiley - biggrin, like 'in the old days' I have enough with this site smiley - online2long(Though I noticed you have many {ex-}Researchers on your contacts smiley - cheers).

Well, perhaps one day this site will live again. smiley - zen As long as you and the rest of the crowd keep an eye on the site there is still some hope. See you on the 'whosonline', not beeing the < <./>online</.> >. smiley - magic

Not unlike in the old days, I still learn every day something new. I just have to restrain my curiousity to self imposed observation for now.smiley - bigeyes "

I'm not exactly keeping an eye on the site, it happens very seldom that I come here. There are other websites which offer interesting content, so I'm volunteering there. smiley - smiley

As for the friends list: I honestly have no idea, who is still here and who has left. I think a lot have left. smiley - smiley

Oh, *that* list. smiley - biggrin That's even more confusing than the list here. smiley - laugh

That isn't a site with interesting content, though. Only very occasionally. smiley - biggrin

I already had a peek at the latest smiley - thepost, seeing as I was here anyway. smiley - smiley
