Sanzano said:How am I not trying darkboarder_77, I am adding content to SuperCheats 8 hours a day five times a week and Rich is trying to maintain another site. I've only got one pair of hands...

Sorry, Dennis. Look at this place. Look. Smack Rich on the back of his head if he's the reason for it. Maybe it's his doing, not yours. Sorry. Still.

XP-era smileys. Same old 100x75 image-hosting avatar system from when I joined 18 years ago (who... the f*ck... still uses this system). Preselected avatars from freaking PS2-era, most of which I remember from my first days here. No activity apart from you and one or two other members trading punches in various threads. I see where XVGN and GU went -- here, yes, but why? They died, probably. Looks like this is where Rich's projects go to die.

Edit: Oh, yeah. My bio edits haven't come through in over a month now. My friend requests to active users haven't been fulfilled. My messages to you haven't been answered. Broken system? Overworked admins? I don't know. Look at all this. It's derelict.

Only thing floating this site, I'd wager, are the submissions -- the one thing XVGN and GU didn't do to my knowledge. It's the whole "upload your cheat and other people can get the same stuff they get from 20 other SEO-dominant sites on 2022's Google" type thing. SuperCheats is a victim of age and severe obsolescence. This place doesn't pop up on search engines unless I specifically ask for a username that only SC would have, or unless I refer to SC directly.

This is awful. From a place of nostalgia, it seems bold, and I really appreciate what you do, Dennis, but another part of me's going, "What a bloody waste." I never did fully understand your role in all this. I see it in your subs and posts, but I've never really grasped why everything else here has stagnated. Whether that's you or not, I never knew. I guess it's out of your hands after all. Sorry.


Thanks for the input about the site Darkboarder77, it was interesting reading it. As you have figured out I'm not the brains behind the operation, that's Rich and Mark who does the programming. If you want to leave suggestions as to how they can improve the site I'll be quite happy to pass it on.

Ha, Dennis - The guy with awful spelling was Neptis, he was always in the new members welcome forum. I think he was a grown man that had some sort of disability that made it hard for him to spell.

Aeshma was huge, then he made the new account Youkou - he just posted recently. I wasn't around for very long while he was still active, but never had a problem with him.

Cross Stinger is a nice guy - I've actually got him on Facebook - we talk every once in a great while. He lives not terribly far from me. He's a little eccentric but a good guy.

I think the girl you're thinking of is ozzo. There were a couple of girls around back then, ozzo, Juli, Nic something, ShadowGX.

I was actually able to meet up with CrossStinger when he visited the west coast. We're friends on Facebook as well lol.

It's lovely to hear that people who met on SuperCheats have actually become friends and met in real life. It's amazing really when you think how big the world is.

Sanzano said:Who was that kid who had awful spelling, it was painful reading his posts. Then as the years rolled by it got remarkably better. I'm pretty sure it was something like Nespit.

Then there was that chap called Aeshma, if I remember correctly he came from the Netherlands, controversy just followed him around like a bad smell. I personally thought he was OK but most of the kids disliked him and were always complaining about something he had done. I think he was the guy who had personal issues and had to leave the site. Rich offered him a job, but unfortunately for whatever reason it didn't work out.

Then there was that kid who knew everything there was to know about Pokemon, he literally was a walking encyclopedia on Pokmeon. I think his name was something like Cross Stinger. He was a good guy.

Who was that girl who used to post here and once she posted her photo all the teenage boys fell in love with her. Blond hair, really cute looking face. I can't remember her name. I now wonder if that actually was a photo of her or someone else's face she found on the net. All I know is all of a sudden she became very popular.



I seem to recall the reason a lot of us disliked Aeshma was because he was Rich's favorite out of nowhere and for no apparent reason. When even Cross_Stinger had to sweat and draw blood for his supermod role, Aeshma suddenly had the role within... what, three months of joining? He could do nothing wrong in Rich's eyes. Whatever he said, Rich automatically agreed with. He had spats with other high-level members, too, and I wanna say Crossy was one of'm. It never mattered because Rich backed up Aeshma every step of the way. I think it took Aeshma less time to become admin than any of us to become moderators, let alone supermods. Rich treated'm better than he seemed to treat you, Dennis. It was surreal.

It was also a good long while ago, and I may've forgotten exactly how things went. Doesn't help that I was the saltiest f*cking member on the forum when it came to literally anything, especially Aeshma's advancement through the ranks. I was 13-14 and a pubescent sh*thead. Still, looking back... something doesn't feel right. It's almost like Aeshma was Rich's closest pal and none of us were supposed to know it.

I can assure you Rich new as much about Aeshma as the rest of us. If I remember correctly the guy had issues in his private life which is why he left SuperCheats. Rich tried to help him out by offering him a job doing the same as I do to earn some money, but the guy wasn't interested. I have no idea what happened to him, I wish him well though.

I have no ill will toward'm. He was probably a great guy, and I probably just didn't see that through my own issues. Hope he's alright.
