This is the only one true place that I've missed chatting with folks. Despite trying a bunch of new forums (GameFAQs *shudder*), it's simply not the same as Kami. Even though this is a Mortal Kombat fansite, this was a great place for other interests even if you didn't like MK at all. I'm aware that things simply change, but still, I miss you all.

Yeah, this site really had an overall good community. It is truly disappointing to see the activity levels fall by the wayside, considering the great deal of effort everyone had put in to bring it to where it is today. I don't have as much time for forums as I did way back when, but I do get on Xbox and plod around at times. I think a link to my account there is in the sig.

WE need to bring this community back to life!!

Be happy with what God gave you, and use it to reach your maximum potential...or in my words; "give everything you do a viciously strong effort!"

I came back here to see what's going on because I was thinking of those old days when I was super active here, man I loved those times! How can we bring this community back? I am onboard with doing so.
I am only interested in MK discussion though and I hate what WB games are doing to our beloved series.

Got a new tattoo yesterday. Bled like a little bitch, but was worth it after all. Coming closer to having a full sleeve done.

I mean, to be fair, the last 2 Mortal Kombat games had the WB name on 'em and are better in nearly every conceivable way than the last 2 pieces of shit games that had the Mortal Kombat logo on 'em.

Cool tat dude, been lookin' at getting something soon. Wife already has a large one on one of her arms and one of her legs. Just haven't found something I like enough yet.

Wowee. Really cool!

I actually got my first tattoo a couple months ago. I'll try posting a picture later.

Well enough. Kinda wanna get this next bit off my mind, though.

Anyone here hear from any of the older users from Kamidogu's time of flourishing, when there were multiple sites within the same fandom with similar userbases (Fuzz's site and MKOutworld)? I know MSN messenger got replaced with Skype, and I admittedly haven't signed into my old handle in so long. I think I only have access to the gudtymez922@yahoo one, but it occurs to me that an opportunity to reconnect with old friends from these sites may be fading. Not to knock Chris's work here, he's done a tremendous thing with this site--it's just an absolute shame that the trends of social media have kind of turned fan-based forums into a relic in the span of a few years. This is the only site I know to visit where there's a chance people like XpArTy, Cleric, Subfocus, Suz, Ant, Akira, Randa, Misfit, liono, Crispy, OP, and... (well f**k me, I can't seem to remember a whole lot of other names--if we talked a lot back then and I missed you I'm sorry D:) might see this post. Somehow, Vultyrex and Mikemetroid and I have been able to keep in touch on Facebook. If anyone back from our 'stupid little internet clique' would like to keep in touch feel free to either PM me on here or the skype handle I mentioned earlier. I'm not on all the time, but I'll try to check every so often. Only other contact method I'm really comfortable with putting on here is my XBL GT on my sig below, but IIRC most of y'all are PC or Sony purchasers. Ciao.



We still have a Skype group (been runnjng with it for years now) with a few people like shiro, Steve, Jay, osf, etc. Just add Suzonri and ill add you to that group. Admittingly i havent been here in months but its good to see some people posting. Also too bad you don't have a ps4 gud, we all play overwatch and having you would have been a blast.

You know, I suddenly missed this site. I missed the days back when I was in high school, waiting for the bell to ring so I can go come and hang around with the people here. We had good times even though I only know you guys by your handles and goddammit I miss chat, I miss fooling around with everyone and I miss the days when the site was active as hell. Well, sometimes change sucks, but I wish I could relive the good old days.

Yeah lol, I'm one of those very few people who preferred MK the old way, I hate that these nobody's (Cassie, Jackie, Kenshi's son, kung lao ripoff) have pushed the old mk characters aside and taken up the pedestal, like they are being forced on us.

I forgot to mention that just over a year ago I became a dad :)
I had a son and named him Asher, my biggest achievement! I could have mentioned it here if we were still active

Chris, I read your social media post. Regardless of what decision you make when it comes to Kamidogu's future, I think you need to decide what's best for you first and foremost. I know you and I don't see eye-to-eye on everything, and I'm sure that my opinion is not the most important qualifier for what you choose to do next. Just know that your efforts at keeping this community of outcasts from outworld, informer, and kamidogu of old a place to chat has not gone unnoticed. Unfortunately, I think the window has closed with catching up with some of our old friends here. You did what most of the other admins from that day could not--and persevered. Kudos to you.

Hi everyone. Hope you all are having a pleasant start to 2018.

I also saw the post on Twitter, and it truly resonated within me. So much so, that I had to stop back by for a quick hello. I've found myself thinking lately about my involvement in this community and how nice those memories of my time here have been, though I, and many others, have become inactive. Times change and life continues to move forward. It's bittersweet. But all of those memories and experiences endure and I recall each moment so fondly. It's something I'll always be grateful for. Looking at Kami now and seeing once lively forums vacant is disheartening. But the records of vivid discussions, inside jokes, and fun are all still preserved here, suspended in time. The painstakingly detailed and meticulous site design is still present. The effort that went into the strategy guides and various other media are evident. It's all here, all those pieces of things that made me and so many other happy. The passion here still burns bright amongst the quietness.

I suppose ultimately my intention here is to express my thankfulness for my being in this community and for the happiness my time here brought me. With social media and the way we connect with others online taking different avenues since Kami's inception, it is likely that the end of using this type of platform for discourse may be inevitable. But what we take away from our time here while this site was thriving is what is relevant. For me, Kami was life changing in many ways and I credit my involvement here for laying much of the foundation for the person I am today. And I'll always be grateful.

Shiro

Hey Mustang, that was really well written.

What can I say? Kami feels like the sad ending of Angel Beats.



Thanks for the good times everyone, and thanks ST for all the years of effort you put into this home of ours. :)
