    I used to be a regular poster on these boards when this site went by the name of Spider-Man Hype and I continued to haunt this place when it became Superhero Hype too. I hung out many a night or a lazy afternoon in the Community Forum and had great conversations with other members contemplating the mysteries of the universe or having a joke and a good ole laugh about something really dumb and silly; I do remember there was a lot of spamming involved too. It was a bit of mad house back then to put it mildly, but they were the best of times. I still pop in on the odd occasion and sometimes read a thread that catches my eye. I haven't been a daily visitor or a contributing poster in about seven years. What kind of member antics have I missed out on over those seven years? Can anyone give me a quick update on the trends and fads that have come and gone on here? While I’m typing this I also wanted to say a quick hello to any of the Hype members that still remember me. I miss you guys; I hope life has treated you good, big hugs to you all. :yay:

    I was only gone at the most a few months, but, with all the Superhero films popping up, for me it was hard to stay away lol

    Since I joined...I guess about a week when I went to Fiji. Maybe 3-4 days during a trip to Disneyland.

    I guess there were points where I was on/off for months. Welcome back! Update: The X-Men boards are fast becoming crazier than the Bat Boards.

    What is this Mr. Peg? I've seen posters briefly mention it, but never expanding on it...

    I stopped posting for about a year starting in 2009. Would come back every now and then to check on things. Then I started posting more frequently when the three big superhero movies came out last year.

    I used to have an old account years ago in the pre-Batman-Begins-days, then stopped using it for about six years or so before deciding to come back with a fresh start.

    I've been away from the Hype for like..five minutes at the most. Boss demands loyalty.

    What brought you back? The friends you made on here or the did you miss the discussions and news? A bit of both?

    I'm not sure what brings me back here from time to time. Most of the people I knew who posted on these boards have either moved on with their lives; or changed usernames and made a fresh start.

    For me, I think it's the sense of community spirit that brings me back; we all shared something in common with one another It was a haven for comicbook geeks; a place we could all feel at home. A sense of place and family.

    A few years or so. I used to be addicted to SHH when I was younger but then it died down a bit. I finally decided to come back to discuss hero stuff again.

    I was gone for around 8 months in 2011. Just went other places for a while ( actually I was really pissed that Timstuff got banned). Then I came back and all was well. I'm not a frequent poster anyway but I like the place and most of the people.
