I've been on Stripcreator for longer than any other web site, but I was absent during the boorite & ivy drama so I don't really know the whole story. I guess they turned out to be jerks? But let's be honest, a lot of the people here have been (or are) jerks. Boorite & ivy made funny comics and I'm sorry they're not still making comics here. That's the extent of my opinions about it.
For me the "halcyon days" of Stripcreator were back at the beginning. I miss people like Gabe and wirthling. There was a time when the majority of the comics I wrote were in-jokes with that early group. (Not saying that's a good thing, just the way it was.)
I went to a few in-person SC meetups in my area. DexX visited the US and stayed at kaufman's house for a while. I went there to meet them and kaufman introduced us to a board game called Blokus. I think he said he had been a tester for it, or gotten an advance copy, or something. It was a great game, so I bought my own copy. This past weekend I had some friends over to play board games, and we got out my copy of Blokus for their young children to play with.
I participated in, I think, four CD swaps. I'm still listening to some of the bands they introduced me to. Last week while I was cleaning I found some printed notes from little_kitty's and jes_lawson's. Dcomposed sent two discs and I can't find my copy of the one I liked better anymore.
But I was never very active in the chat. For me, this site is all about the comics. My fondest wish for SC would be for all of the people in my "following" list to come back and start writing comics again.
