    That's something that's impossible. I believe we shouldn't be searching for that either.

Unfortunatly we've gone from a site with a couple hundred active members, around 80 of which being fairly prominent and well known throughout the community to being a site with perhaps 400 active members (though thousands of registered members) with probably only 4-5 users which are well known even to the 'newbies' and these members are well known probably due to how often they post. I doubt that I'm one of them. Besides the lot of you in the 'veterans clan' how many people in the chat forum do you think even know my username? I remember when I had around 300 posts I started talking to Gig on the pm system, the head of the site, and he chatted with me from time to time, I was amazed! There was much respect with all members and each year we would even go to Otakon with eachother. That has changed unfortunatly...and I doubt things will return to how they once were.
    I would have to agree. back in 2003 AO was a nice community. alot of inteligent discussions. alot of devoted members that posted.

    AO's stats back then before the site went under

    With this new AO that SpiderWeb, Then Dan, Then Spdude. created was just another spam site. All sold the site for money. I could see if the site was beeing a burden on the owners but thats just bull. I wish we had the old 2003 site today. with all the staff and members that posted.

    Alot of the old gallery members coming back would be prety cool beans.
    but the site itself i think is like a hangout for people of every style; ive seen emos to christians to highschoolers, and older naime fans. its just a all around site no reason to let the few ruin it.
