My Ranking Points
Hey this is a slightly non-forum related post but I feel like it’s important. Slight site history thing. So once upon a time there was a thing called Open Chat. Open Chat was a forum like the rp levels, except it was a place where you could chat about… basically anything. there were circus of talents’, trial by tales’, millions of clubs and rps, deans and schoolmasters, all confined to the Open Chat. But then, about a year ago, it got taken down for a bug. We’ve mostly all lost hope at this point about it ever coming back. However, when it disappeared, it took a lot of its history with it, and a lot of the users who frequented it have been lost to time. So I’m here to name some of them, in an attempt to stop people from forgetting. So much has already been forgotten… but I’m here to try and help you guys remember. To spread their stories to the next generation, if only for a moment. The users of The Golden Age.

Some I’ve met, some I haven’t. Some are still here, most aren’t. All deserve to be remembered. As do so many more who’ve been forgotten. Spoe their activities. Ask older users their stories if their still here, and the stories of others. Please try and remember and learn. They are our history and they matter. They have left an important, treasured legacy that only we, and the next generations, can carry on. Carry it well.
Hello as one of the few golden age users still active (I’m not sure how many there are in total); I just wanted to say if anyone has any questions or wants to talk I’m here! I really want to meet some new people. I’m sad that a lot of the golden age users are gone, but I hope we can make this community even stronger than it was! I hope open chat come back soon, so that we can grow stronger as a whole, but until it does we will make the best of it, as we always do! Have an amazing day everyone. Ps. If any newbies need some tips or anything with the website, just ask!
(I am most certainly not an older user, but I will try to help in any way I can)
Exactly what Bailey said. I’d love to get to know more people, you guys are amazing.
The left but not forgotten, the here and always treasured <33
I know their stories well. I was there through it all. They made the site, the community what it is today.
Remember. Them and their stories, for they’re why we’re here. Remember.
Just scrolling through all the usernames you tagged is bringing back so much nostalgia and good memories, sometimes all I want is to time travel back to when open chat was like that
*continue to be impressed that I’m a golden age user*
Hello! I occasionally have
traps posts just for spoes in my activity.
I don’t tag anyone just to see who will find them.
The most recent one is buried under the trial, but I try to make scouring my activity worth it!
I am a very newish user, but I will try to help! I think! 😀
I agree, they did so much and help build this site. They may not be here but they will be remembered<33. I joined pretty recently, but I will try to help make this a better place.
If anyone has questions, I’m a good person to ask. I’ve been on the site since July 2016, and I’ve been present for most of the major events.
Thank you so much for making this, Thea. It really means a lot and I’m so glad everyone has gotten the chance to mingle with people from all different ages of the site. If anyone needs or wants to talk, I’d love to get to know you. I generally will post random stuff in my activity from spoes about once or twice a week, usually rambles or tea parties. I’d love to meet more people.
Ohhh she’s just this girl who caused a bunch of drama. Everyone on the site at the time knew her. Looking back on it now it was pretty funny-
thank you for this post thea!! i agree wholeheartedly and i’ll do everything in power to keep these users’ legacies alive as well as all other users currency on the site. it’s so incredibly important ❤️❤️
Thank you for posting this! I joined in 2015 and I’ve seen so many great people go. But the one thing I love about this site is that even when your friend leave you always get to make new ones. I’m glad I’ve continued coming here over the years or I never would have made the great friends I have today 😊
I’m pretty sure it was @/minarose but she was banned a longggg time ago. I’m just bringing it up because it was a pretty funny memory. It was the first major scandal we had on the site — that and the peasant/elder war.
Oh man this was yearsss ago so I can’t give you clear details. She was really controlling and up herself, saying that she ruled the RP and that she could do whatever she wants, so on and so on. Except that she didn’t just do it for laughs and move on. She kept on going and going, getting on everyone’s nerves. She was really really rude as well and actually hurt a lot of people’s feelings. And whenever she got called out she played the victim and said she was being excluded. It got to the point that every forum on here was BLOWING up reporting her. She ended up getting banned but not before she caused a lot of damage. Some people even said they would leave because she was being so rude
It was a pretty big deal at the time because (if my memory stands correct) she was the first major issue we had on here. And it wasn’t just that she got on a few people’s nerves. Nah, EVERYONE was giving out about her. Now that I think about it she was pretty iconic. Whenever anyone would mention Mina Rose everyone on the site would remember what she did lol
And not in a good way. So she’s infamous? Ugh I hate it when people who shift the blame all the time and turn things on others.
oh my gosh i heard aboout that! i remember looking back at that
Erm 2016 I think? Long time ago. Now that I’m reminiscing would you like to here about the Elder/Peasant war?
Yes please! *I sit down, cross-legged, and watch you attentively, as you sit down a chair*
XDDDDD I am making you sound like a granny-
Yessss I love telling old SGE stories. Ok this one’s kinda long but it explains a lot about the site.
So in the beginning (around 2015) we had what we called the “old site”. This was the SGE site except before there was avatars and usernames and stuff. Back then it was superrrr basic. There was only one Rp forum then as well, which I was a part of. I’d say there was like 10-15 of us in total. So the only people that RP’d on the site were the few of us.
Then the site got taken down as Soman replaced it with this one (major upgrade). Let me tell you it was sooo weird having to make an avatar for yourself and stuff like that. But there was only one Rp forum as well (which we now know to be Level 3). All the people from the old site quickly hopped on to the new Rp, thinking we could just pick off where we left it, but we were super wrong. There was a whole FLOOD of new people who’d somehow found the new site. They all wanted to join the Rp. And we got a bit territorial. We basically told them all that they couldn’t join — they didn’t know what the story was, our characters, or how to fit in with our pre-established group. There was a guy called Jack who dubbed all the new people peasants and all the old people were Elders. We were actually pretty mean and I regret it all now. We gave all the new people trying to join a really hard time, calling them newbies and peasants to patronise them. It got so bad that Soman ended up making a NEW Rp forum for all the new people to join — and this is what we now know to be Level 2. After Level 2 became settled into their story Level 1 and 0 were also created for people new to role play.
Oh wow. I heard about the old site before (thanks to Soman’s blogs and stuff)
It’s weird to think that new people who join think this is how it always was, with all these different Rp’s and stuff. In a way I kind of miss the old site — back when it was really basic. There was a purple screen and a tiny comment box which you’d type your whole POV into. And everyone just went by the names of their characters because there was no usernames. The competitions and stuff were a lot more basic too.
Definitely tag me. I have a list of people I am very sure would be interested:) I’ll get back to you on it as soon as possible!
Just a few? I don’t really know haha I’ve never done anything like this before
Lol I know that Vee and Ley will probably want to be tagged, and a bunch of others! Could you give me a sort of description or should I do one?
I am gonna post something in my activity about this! And Amy/Ava and Noa might wanna be tagged!
Tag me as well if you do it! I would love to know more
I miss them 🙁
I’m not completely dead, but I don’t have so much time and with Open Chat down I don’t really know what to say anymore.
I loved the Golden Age…reading down the list made me tear up thinking about all the memories and those who have left us *cries*
*I hug you*
The memories are sweet things, yet so, so bitter. But at least we remember.
Thank you cove, thank you for being a shining light in a cruel world. I hope I can one day be apart of a group that does all the wonderful things you do. To all those golden age users, that age sounded so brilliant and I can only dream of being in it. Please do come to me if you ever want to share the magic with someone
For some reason, I just got a new notification from 5 and a half hours ago….
I was on the OC for a while, then moved to the doc
Cove, I’m very sad you’re leaving, but I respect your decision very much… I may follow soon…

Thanks Thea 💜
I’m surprised I’m on here ngl haha
Golden Age User heh. Miss y’all
thank you so much, this is an honor to be considered part of that era.
Something else I wanted to add-This really means a lot to me, because it feels so so validating to have people care about you in this way. I had no idea I was such an important part of this website, but it’s an honor., Truly.
hey it’s me @tigerlilygirl I can’t get into my old account but I finally rejoined the site today and I was so happy when I checked my old account’s mentions and saw this post! So much has changed since the last time I was here and I wonder if anyone remembers me…? But I’m glad to be back and tysm for this post, everyone on here deserves to be remembered 🙂
Hello! I have heard of you. That is true. Everyone deserves to be remembered.
This is such a lovely post. ‘The Golden Age’ was such a good time. I think about it so often it doesn’t even feel as though it was that long ago. Gosh, the nostalgia of seeing all of those usernames. It only took seeing them to remember them. So many lost friends, and so many memories. As humans, we love and lose, but it’s all the more painful when it’s out of our control. I wish the site was how it used to be, but if I’ve learnt anything from my time here, merely wishing won’t bring back a time that has passed. I’ll just have to learn to be content with the memories. ❤️
