Discussions continue in the Think Thank regarding the Community Manager applications. We thank all the veterans, staff, former staff, and other Think Tank participants for their input on these applications. Think Tank discussions will be concluded Sunday the 28th of June. Voting will then commence among the current Community Manager Team, the Moderators, and the Admin.

Nostalgia Hits FK
After the release of C&C Red Alert I was hit by a wave of nostalgia bringing me back to when I first fell in love with gaming. I wanted to revel in easier and simpler times so I asked all of you: "What made you a life long gamer?" Here are some of the answers.
I used to go to a friends house after school where we would play CS:S and Black Ops on his PC and Playstation. We could sometimes sit until we were kicked off by his mum (like midnight, but whatever), and would continue the next day when we woke up. It was some of my most fun times when we would 1v1 snipe battle each other on Nuke Town or he would show his BHOP skills.
So when Minecraft came out I bought it a bit after him and he showed me how to play it. My brother and I would litteraly race from the door to be the first to play every day! It was fun times indeed. Then I at one point got my own PC and started playing other games like World of Tanks and whatever was on Y8. Overall I think Minecraft really was the game that made me the gamer I am today.
5/7 would play at 2am again
What got me into gaming was the Ace Combat series on my PS2. I started playing Ace combat 5 in 2004 and after playing that I went and bought all of the older and newer ones games in the series that got released later on. #BelkaDidNothingWrong
After that I went and played COD2-3-4 and MW2 on my PS3 which I got bored of quickly since it was just the same to me. Then I switched to Battlefield Bad company 2 which got me hooked into the series in turn I spent 10+ years playing BFBC2, BF 1942, BF3, BF4, BF1 (Which was trash) and BF5 (Which was also trash).
my dad had a super nintendo that me and my brother would play games like mario kart or mortal kombat 2. I would also visit my cousins and they had mxunleashed whenever i visit i would play that game constantly sadly they didnt have anything to save the game so i would beat in a few days.
