Thanks, Lanko!

So.. what was @Raptori's first name again?
Philoso didn't fit.  ;D ;)

I guessed 'Raphael the Rambunctious', but I don't think that was right. :/

Huh, I thought I had removed that!  :o

I've now added a new question that you should get if you've been paying attention.  :P

If nobody gets it then I'll remove it completely...  ;D

Also, that list has a distinct lack of Saurus>:( She doesn't really use GR any more though... maybe we can persuade her to!

Hint: That is (was?) the cat in his avatar, so where could one possibly find the answer to that question? ;)

Added Saurus  :P

Maybe I should put the list on my signature or something, but I have no idea how to put the link to that message and make it look like "Goodreads Members List".

You may be able to  have it pinned to the start of the thread, but don't know how it could be updated. That makes more work for mods usually but there may be another solution.
Please @Arry or @xiagan could you advise?

Success! I managed to put it in my signature! Now if anyone wants to check the list, they just need to go to my profile and click on my signature!

I don't remember Samuel Posega's nick in here. Paul Proffet is an author, he posted on introduction and some other threads, though I don't see him around much.

I can add it to the first post, but I don't think a lot of people look there...

I thought about making a reference table or something, but felt the same. I wish Goodreads was one of the options on the profile page. So much more useful than AIM or MySpace!

I doubt most people under 25 (maybe a little younger) will ever realize how big of a deal AIM was.

I have no idea what ICQ, AIM and YIM are.

icq (i seek you) is like google talk.  but from the mid-nineties.  and where your id was a number, not a name.  for instance, like 6718218.

aim -- aol instant messenger.

yim -- yahoo instant messenger.

Aim was awesome. I used it in middle school to connect with facebook. And it had a feature you could use to text people for free.
I also used Windows Live Messenger. That one was cool because it had audio messaging before Aim did. And then there was Miranda IM, which combined AIM, Windows Live, and Facebook all in one. You could make your own soundpack for it and everything.
Man, like I use facebook anymore... I'm gettin old. :P
