I would've though Machias was the heart. Cube's like the little kid we love to hate, or just hate; everyone's baby brother pretty much.

Leo went a bit over the top and Penny I don't get why she left, but I'd be happy to see either of them again.

My guess is he might have completely failed to make it big in LA and not become the movie direction he was hoping to become.
Interesting. Well, despite USA having the biggest entertainment industry in the world, it can also be hard to get into it or becoming successful since there's TONS of competition.

Why did he get so worked up over Laird selling his rights to Nick/Viacom, though? I disliked what Bay did to the Turtles but I'm not losing sleep over it.

Hannah... I remember that username, but I don't recall ever talking to her.

Honestly, despite being a member since early 2009, I didn't start becoming a regular until Summer 2014 or so. Before that I'd make like 3-4 posts every 3-4 months.

Before anyone jumps down my throat about women's issues, I know they are out there and need to be spoken about, but she took it to an annoying level.

It hurts me personally, honestly.

I miss Hannah. She was a great forum member.
Youd never make it on Reddit or 4Chan.

There's not a whole lot of fresh TMNT stuff to discuss, we've dissected both PD movies, the show have extremely long hiatuses.

there's toys and comics I guess.

Yeah, but usually the threads for bigger movies end up in hate-filled circlejerks.

It's funny. When I joined this place the TMNT seemed to be dead at the time. Then Viacom bought it and people were like "WOA!"

I remember there not being much activity here back in early-mid 2009. Not even in the off topic section. Per example, this thread of mine is already on the 3rd page despite having been created what? Less than an hour ago? If I made a thread back in 2009 I'd get like 2-3 replies in a day if I was lucky.

The 2k3 show ended in 2009, and the Mirage comics were pretty much ending.

And you're prolly right. Drama seems to have increased tenfold in the last couple of years, especially during this year. It seems like EVERY thread turns into arguments now. And that is quite frankly discouraging.

Well, I have meandered through those threads recently...it gets heated to say the least.

But while it's discouraging, I still think this place is good. Maybe it's a bad time, but I'm going to try and become more active after just lurking this past year...

I still think this place is better than most other places on the internet. I've been on the internet since 2000 and have been reading and posting on forums more or less since then as well, and this place is pretty tame compared to many other places out there. Most internet forums seem to be full of trolls, idiots, SJWs, hardcore racists, ignorant people in general, rude people, etc.

People should just ignore those two. They're just two immature kids crying for attention. Don't give any to them and they'll stop. Besides, aren't both banned now?

I've read some threads on Reddit before and it seems to be fairly tame despite being a big circlejerk. Also, I feel people on Reddit try a bit too hard to be politically correct at times. Just the impression I've gotten from the few threads and sub-reddits I've read there.

I'm aware of that, I was trying to say that this site is a lot tamer in comparison to other message boards/forums out there where the members don't really have a filter.

It's funny. I've been here longer than most of you but I've always been more of a reader than a poster(though this year I've tried to be more active.) I've had a very fly on the wall kind of perspective on the whole community since I don't really engage often enough to develop relationships or a presence.

That being said, both Penny and Leo had their fair share of ups and downs. Old Leo, I occasionally miss. The later "I'm the f**king DC authority around here" Leo can stay disappeared for all I care.

No disrespect to either of them, though.

Sidenote: I do miss ValorXII from back in the day. I helped him out with his Newgrounds "Mutant Ninja Turtles" series.

I'm not into superhero stuff except for TMNT, so I have no idea what he used to say about DC.

Leo has had some issues in his personal life. Not sure what exactly and I'm also not gonna reveal what I know either. But either way, he has been quite open about his personal life at times on these forums, so if you've ever come across a post or two of his where he vents about his life, it's quite obvious to see why stress got the best of him and why this place having become more toxic lately ended up turning him off.

Also you guys aren't taking peoples ages into account. 10 years ago we were all well...10 years younger. Obviously we had more free time and less responsibilities in our younger years.
