Hello! I was just getting nostalgic about the past of MT forums and MT mafia, and wanted to post something of a "how is everyone doing?" type thread here. I hope the mods are OK with this, given that the RPGs forum has (sadly) had basically no activity since the revamp.

I only found MT and MT forums in 2011, at which time the forums were still fairly active, then over the next few years gradually turned into a complete ghost town. So I have less nostalgia about it than many, but I still have some...

I also started getting nostalgic and missing specifically the Mafia community. I hope you all are doing well.

Man, with the new forums it really feels like a checkpoint as to a new era in our lives... (and the checkpoint may be a couple years late :P )

(The new era referring to a new era in which we've moved past mafia onto other things, though I imagine that doesn't apply to everyone here meaning perhaps some still play on other forums... but I know many of us have mentioned moving on from mafia, either due to not having time, or just because of a loss of interest, or both, or neither)

But I miss you and hope you all are doing well!

Mafia just takes you so much energy and I've realized over and over I just don't have the same type of enthusiasm I once did. I wish I could reclaim that, but I can't. Still it's been one heck of a ride for me. I've gone from someone who didn't have a real clue on how to play to sorta semi knowledgeable about it.

I really do miss the community and wish there was something new that could reunite everyone like this forum once did.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Ironically enough I actually do like to talk about the game though in all its variants.

I have kinda missed Mafia.

I still have Texas Ranger Mafia available, in a way. I had to reload Win 10. Even though I was smart and had it loaded onto a solid state drive and kept the two old 1.5 TB drives as data drives, it still somehow managed to screw up the permissions on some of the drives. I can't access a few of the files as a result and I have no clue as to how that can be fixed.

Still, Texas Ranger is there.

Hey look replies

made my night a little better to see replies on this actually

Honestly I am actually surprised at just how much the activity here has decreased. I mean no replies for two months. To be honest, I wasn't expecting that.

Well, anyway, I personally am not interested in mafia because I'm too emotionally unstable lol. I got to the point where I just completely lose it when I play mafia, that's pretty much made it that I hate mafia now lol

Yeah, actually a couple years ago I was creating a "Goldeneye 007" mafia, but when I decided to quit mafia, I deleted everything in my "mafia" folder, so I don't have any of it now. It is interesting how many different variants of mafia you can have. Probably the most party-like mafia I played was Aarin's idolm@ster mafia. It was kind of more of a "go with the flow" kind of feel, there were 4 factions, it was totally cool. I guess when thinking about different styles of mafia, that one stood out to me because it was a clear-cut, 4-faction game, whereas most mafia games I played were "town" vs. "mafia" and any extra factions were secret. Now I'm remembering that Aarin threw in something, one of the factions was secretly mafia or something and they just destroyed our team right off the bat. That prompted Madogu Abuser to post one of the best memes in mafia history:
