    Here we can all mourn the socks that due to passwords long forgotten, lack of private emails or email accounts you can no longer access. They will forever sleep in the depths of these forum, but who knows maybe they will come back and haunt the new forums.

    Goodbye

    You were registered in 2003, posted a few times in FanForce Nordic Countries General Discussion, and there your story ends.

    Even more forgotten are those socks you know you registered, but can't even remember the right name.

    I had a sock with some variation of Count Dooku and a Mace Windy sock, that's all I remember though.

    This is my sock. I haven't posted in my 00 guise in years. Of all of my dozens, my favorite which will never return due to banning was KUKMOD. I made the profile look exactly like KUK's and I just chastised people for bad posting habits in ALL CAPS WITH THREATS LIKE BAN FOR WEEKS AND DEAD!!! U OBEY TEH TOS OR PUNCHED IN FACE!!!

    Annoying... but fun to post that way. Kuk did not approve. His complaints spelled the death of my only shot at moderating.

    Only two socks that I registered before this name survived. The rest either got lost in the email system or got lost in my memory. Very sad. I read the forums more than I posted back at the turn of the century. But since 2001 I've kept a piece of paper that has all my socks on it. Most I never used. Thus my sock auction.

    My greatest sock ever, Rump_Ranger, lasted all of one post before being banned forever.

    I was sad.

    I think I'm only going to loose two socks in the move. Both are tied to email addresses that no longer exist with passwords that I can't remember.

    I'm technically a sock since I used a different username my first two years. I switched to this name after the UBB move. I'm hoping Grimby can combine usernames when we move so I get my real reg date back from 98.

    I don't even remember most of my sock names. But I had an army of them! Technically this account is a sock. Goodbye IGN boards! You popped my message board cherry back in the day!

    This sock has my main email so I had to use another one for my main account. Imperialist ass.

    How exactly does one forget the password for a sock when they can easily have it reset despite not logging into it for over seven years?
