Oh, it's kind of long and complicated.

In chronological order:
Ben's first appearance (himself, not through Jared) here: http://www.thesuburbs.org.uk/news/Runaway_vs_Normal_Guy_Ben_Gives_Up_All_the_Answers/
Number 2: http://www.thesuburbs.org.uk/news/Return_of_Ben_with_Caps_and_Vague_Information_Ovation_TV_things_too/
The .org post: http://www.thesuburbs.org.uk/news/I_m_Getting_A_Work_Out_Updating_This_Thing/


and you're in the last thread Ben started.


But, he's been back since: Check all 6 posts here: http://www.thesuburbs.org.uk/Board/index.php?action=profile;u=2267;sa=showPosts

Oh man, oh man.


hHahhahaha.

Okay. First read this and the link to my post in it:  http://www.thesuburbs.org.uk/news/To_answer_a_couple_of_questions/


Then read this: http://www.thesuburbs.org.uk/Board/index.php?topic=4484.0

I had a good laugh with Ben about this in April this year. "Uh, sorry I thought you were pissed." "Hahahahahaha. No worries. ahhahahaha."

Mel and I even made a sign. I still have it.

Yea I've seen the show where he talks about you being pissed, but I had no clue what the hell he was talking about, since I hadn't joined yet.

I still think he was angry. Maybe it was about his foot, but really, he seemed angry. EVERYONE after the show was talking about how pissed Ben seemed. I just happen to be the person who said it on the internet first.


Friday night? Seemed like he was having one good hell of a time.

He had an awesome time last night, he was rocking out with the conductor. They even posed for a picture while walking off the stage. The whole time, I was wondering where the camera policy went, right out the window is where ;D

Crazy stuff. I still feel like I missed Ben's original post on the org (it does say he posted there twice), and Ill's thread seemed to stem out of some earlier exchange.

It's still so bizarre to me how this all panned out. I understand what DrewMG said, that the org metamorphosed differently from this site. The timing of it all just caught me off guard...when I stopped posting on the org, everyone was still lovin' Ben, and there was a reasonably tight, albeit online, community. As life caught up with me, I left and didnt visit any Ben sites for years. Later, with WtN on the horizons, I returned to the org to catch up on the excitement (I was remembering all the giddy anticipation of RTS leading up to that release, and sort of wanted to re-live it). It's kinda like going back to your hometown and seeing the same people and places, but your rosey memories of it are replaced with bickering, sarcasm, jaded-ness, etc.

In fact, that's pretty much why I registered here-not because I have some burning desire to talk about Ben 24/7 (when I registered for the org originally I think I was 14, so understandably back then I probably had a lot more time and energy for that, haha!), but because I wanted to see again an online community that sort of reminded me of what the org used to be.

Holy shit, I'm cheesing out sentimental shit about web message boards...f*ck

I too found the .org a "rough neighborhood".  I used to post on the "official site", but that became a ghost town.  This seems just right for now.

Is the official site gone? In spite of the low traffic and posts I found useful information there many a times. I didn't bookmark it so I can't go back an see if its there cause I can't find a link to it on Ben's new website.

well, a hearty welcome to you!

Maybe it was the lack of coffee this morning, but when I read that, I read it as a "Hardee's welcome to you," and I scratched my head and said "double thickburger what?"
