You remember the nuke.
You know what a Bob is.
Nano-Gridlock was the place to be.
EC vs EGC.
When you played as much Science and Industry with the crew as you did NS.

The list goes on. Heavy nostalgia for me. Been a good 4-5 years since i've set foot on this ground. Add to the list. The waves of nostalgia and good times I'm getting just keep on coming.

Oh and; Hey everyone. Been awhile. Good to be home. <3

    You have one of those anime avatar things.

    FYI most of those things you list are very confusing because you don't say if you were part of them or remember them or what and are instead some sort of weird sentence fragment.

    You remember Monse.
    You used the NSTR.
    You saw the tribal face marine.
    You have this image floating around your computer for some reason.
    And completely unrelated; you saw Militia 1 & 2.

    Bob still fits better.

    I'm going with:
    You remember Nano Gridlock (and did anyone remember Nano-Lockdown, the sister EU server I had on my boxes? Or Warservers, eh ZiGGY?) games of sealing ourselves into the vent above the Marine start, building a whole base in there then mining it all to hell. Jesus, it shows when I can't even remember map names any more.

    A little more esoteric, but...

    You know you're oldschool NS when you know how this World of Warcraft item came to be... Now that's got to narrow it to half a dozen forum goers these days.

    See any names you recognise there?
