Archives of Pain - Chat Room

This is going back a long time ago. But did anyone who now posts on here used to go on that site and the chatroom all those years ago? We're talking around '99.

Would have liked to. But didn't have the Internet back then.

I did. I remember it back in 98/99 when I was 16/17.

Half a lifetime ago. Shit me.

Me. Most nights. I often wonder what happened to everyone seeing how I'm only in touch with one of the people now.

Off the top of my head I remember:
Sammi
Mooki(e?)
guy debored
lizzie
suicideally
ohbugger (chris)
lil richey
che (billy from glasgow)
nigel/legin
fuckmethenleave
sello_tape
slann (who lived in a shed in Stockport)
and whatever name price was using (probably "simon price")


then after Chris died, the place changed to manicshop (?) and was never the same. Trinity/Zahriel Omega (who thought he was Marilyn Manson) kind of took over for some reason. There were a few new people...then it all goes wonk. Did people stop going or did the site just end? I can't really remember.

I spent almost every waking minute on there, can remember a few forum members off there. Always felt a real and genuine community spirit on there. Fuck knows where everyone has gone though, Simon(Sello_Tape) did get in touch with me through here a couple of years ago, but he seems to have vanished.

Was 227lears your name there? I remember a number name.

Last I saw of Simon sello_tape was on myspace a long time ago and we were "myspace friends". He said he didn't use myspace a lot, and he didn't. I think he'd changed quite a lot but that was just an impression really. I didn't get to speak to him really.

I mostly spoke to Mookie and che, but no idea what happened to those two.

I mentioned manicschat.cjb.net (or whatever it was) here a couple of years or so back and someone was able to post archives of that website, including pics of the members etc. It was a real throw back.

Myself and about 4 or 5 of my friends went on there circa 1999/2000. We ended up meeting up with another couple of Irish people from there too.

I went by the name of Joy or JoyDivison. Some people in the world away from the internet still call me that because of that chat room and it is how i picked my current username on here, so there can be no confusion regarding my gender.

Not that i can remember a great deal, but I was fairly silly on the chat room and my spelling was even worse back then. However, there was a bit of kissing that went on thanks to that place!

Anyway..

YOU
ALL
REEK
SOMETHING
FIERCE

Yeah my name was the same on there, Simon posted on here briefly about a year or two ago using the name "Knight of the East" or something like that.

using a number name, in the list of online people I was always at the top!!!

Argh!! I just searched the thread you mentioned. I thought that gallery was lost forever! Remember more people now I've seen that list. I remember the Wymark person being especially hideous.

It was good we had that chatroom.

I spent a lot of time on there also. Seems like a lifetime ago now. I also knew Sellotape and many others. I don't really populate the MSP world much these days, but back then was my heyday. They were good - interesting times.
