Gyrtrash's original username was Dave Raven or David Raven.

Same chap.

The original account may have been re-named, meaning there was only one account.

arthurascii 2013 ? sounds wrong
yes, that seems wrong.
2013 was the last time ArthurASCII is recorded as having visited the site. However ...

There's a January 2014 post attributed to his account.

That was around the time of a major data breakdown, which resulted in a lot of carnage. Long story short - there's no reliable basis for claiming which of these two dates is correct. In any case, there certainly have been no known visits here since the latter date.

Even back in the day, we had some awareness that middle-agèdness could limit the appeal of the board. Our great, young hopes were James-H. - now joyfully restored unto us in his wingèd, ex-pat. form and Evilsprout, Yorkshire journalism-student, firing on all cylinders like a good'un! I hope he took flight!

It's good to hear of the other once-familiar names who continue elsewhere. I have reached the dotage-stage of eternal-present, so that when they walk in the door, it will seem as if they have never been away! :loveu:
