Anyone still here? This place looks pretty dead.

    I don't know why I even remembered A4/Sakuga City, but all of a sudden this evening I wondered what everyone was up to.

    I joined A4 18 years ago. I remember it because it was my 17th birthday. I spent the following decade or so there, having a couple of lengthy periods of absence, followed by A4 imploding and ending up with no real online discussion board activity.

    I have a wife and a kid now. My son recently turned one so the majority of my time goes to him.

    I don't know how many people will see this. Probably fewer than a dozen. I just hope everyone is doing well in life and enjoying theirs as much as I am mine.

    There's no real discussion outside of anime, the political front has deteriorated as much as real life political discussion.

    Enjoy life, congrats on your family and all the best.

    Live long and prosper.

    Hi Buddy, it's nice to hear from you. =) Congrats on becoming a dad!

    I was sick a couple of years ago and, so didn't give this place much of my time for a considerable amount of time. It has been pretty quiet since then, but there are maybe a dozen or so people hanging around the forum here and there who don't use the chat. There is a Discord server where some of the usual suspects still hang out on a daily basis, so if you have time, pop in. Invite link is up there on the top right of the site if you wish to visit.

    Damn, I felt this. Ngl. I just got a new PC after so many years, and thought about A4/Sakuga as of late and decided to come drop by. It's really weird being a rambunctious teen then, coming to now being a full grown adult pushing into 30's! Congrats on being a dad!

    (this is Zakuraa/Faerhen btw, when I originally joined here I wanted a change, but now I kinda want my old name again xD)

    Thanks. Good to hear from you. Political discussion everywhere online is a dumpster fire. I almost miss the Bush vs. Kerry days when the biggest scandal was whether Kerry had had botox or not.

    I hope you're feeling better. I may join that Discord as it's the closest thing to a social media platform that I still use.

    Oh yeah, I can't even believe it sometimes. It feels like a different life from when I was posting on A4. Even ten years ago when I was in my mid-20s is just a blur.

    I'm new. Well, I can't say I relate to someone being a dad. In any case, with a new person posting I doubt this forum is dead.

    I have always loved forums and have been joining a few new ones recently. Unlike people think social media is just a fad. But still trying to see which forums to hang out at. Sakuga City looks promising!

    Welcome..With School, work, responsibilities, etc. lot of folks have not been as attentive to forums as they used to be. Hopefully, that will change. :)

    I'm kinda guilty of being a bit lax when it comes to the forum lately. I had a lot happen IRL over the past year. I'll try to pop in more often. =)
