I miss Pegaweb. And I had no idea that Riorvard used to be Timmy Turner.

Yeah, I'm not the biggest Pegaweb fan. He exploited my naivety in Champs the year he won to encourage me to go with a really dumb zone changing mechanic, which he later publicly said was awful, inelegant design. He wasn't wrong, of course, but the only reason he invited me to chat about my Champs submission in the first place was to make sure it was as crappy as possible. Shame on that owl.


Oh, well I have no idea about their character. I just liked their daily cards.

My first contest was your Genesis of Worlds contest, Q. What year was that?

I follow him on Twitter! He joined in 2005. Cool guy. I miss him and his Prodigal Pyromancer Avatar around these parts.

So I remember so many peoples start dates randomly, but I have no idea what that contest was about. What was the premise? It had to have been 2008 or early 2009, though.

You were most likely a 2007 person.

I think the premise was to make a set. In the finals you asked the finalists to design a planeswalker card, so it was pre-lorwyn.

Shoot, sounds like it was a fun contest. I ran so many contests back in the day that I completely forgot what some of them were.

I joined in 2005. I remember learning my English on the old boards making cards. Would read cards in English at Gatherer (or the Gatherer equivalent, not even sure Gatherer existed back in 2005), compare to the translation, and practice at YMtC.

It's actually pretty impressive how long-lived this community is.

I joined in 2001, but this is my first time (at least seriously; I may have designed in a prelim round or two somewhere before) trying for Idol. I always seemed to miss it until now.
