This has been a big year for one of our most celebrated and respected "old-timers" here, as Beau celebrated his tenth anniversary of being a part of MC, and in honor of the occasion, a number of old-timers who have been keeping a low profile turned out in celebration of the achievement. Beau's feat aside (why do I get the feeling that line alone is going to garner muffins?), it would be wonderful if more of you old-timers would come home and stay a while... I know a number of us are still in personal contact outside of MC, and I know the feelings some of you have about the shape the community has been in recent years, but it would be really nice, and maybe even refreshing to see a few old familiar faces (or avatars rather) around here again, because it was guys like you who really helped shape the MC community into what it was, and I think most of us can agree that it really wasn't until around 2005 or so when MC really did evolve from just a forum into a community, and it was because of you guys, it was because of Beau and MopFam, it was because of Prawnie and Toga and their epic opi (that's plural for opus, isn't it?), it was because of MrsPepper and TKO, it was because of Davo and his weekly Muppet Visuals, it was because of Beth generously handing out muffins to everybody, it was because Vibs was a crazy Dane who killed jokes any chance she got, it was because of Daniel and his love-filled sermons (I do see he's made a comeback recently), and many more, you were the ones who made an impact and made Muppet Central the great place that it is today. So what do you guys say? Will you please come home? Even for a little while?
