There are a few members of the Landsraad left, such as ex (although I think he left at some point).

Well, there was lots of complaints and stuff about why some people had a private board and only certain people were invited. There were some arguments over landsraad members and non members which made several flame wars, and so Gob decided to close it.

Only special thing about landsraad: you got a landsraad title below your name (like I have forum staff), and you got a place to chat about whatever (life, spammers etc), without worrying about the public (members and non members ie search engines) to know.

It was a long time ago, and I don't really remember much.

There was also the moderator board where mods and dune editing people had a private board to talk about stuff (spammers and related items).

Landsraad was gone in late 2003(?). I had joined in October 2003.

It was a particular point of contention for emprworm, who held that it was elitist and favouritist, never quite realising that Landraad councillors held no special powers or offices besides the purely ceremonial.

But then he said a lot of things.

I really enjoyed his thread with the mind games/puzzles.

I think the boards (at least data) are still there, just not accessible to anyone but gob. There was also a messageboard for a dune game that was going to be developed by some forum members. Idea didn't go anywheres though. Forget if it was private.

If there is a secret board and I don't know about it... must be super secret! Probably only Dutch people allowed so they can plot takeover of world.

I went searching through some old topics (and found some very interesting ones), and I have returned with my prize. Reply 5 is where you'll find most of the information.

Doc and EdricO (you where a member right?) are still here, think that NaMp still visits from time to time if his wife let's him to. Same for Timenn. Haven't seen Order45, Number6 lately though.

I have been an member of the Landsraad myself. After they have been closed here the whole board got resurrected at GameHeaven where they can still be viewed by Landsraad members.

Yeah, I really don't remember what my problem was. I think I was smoking an awful lot of pot at the time though.

So I blame that and being like 16 for my dickishniss.

Sorry to all those involved.

Cheers

Ordos45 is around. *Checks under a mat*

Yup, I was part of the Landsraad at some point. And yes, the members from back then can still visit the original boards on the Gameheaven forum.

Yes, there was a negative vibe from non members around the Landsraad, how ever, I'd rather remember the positive ones. It wasn't all bad the Landsraad did. At the time when Generals came out (yes, the original), we held a E:BFD contest out of name of the Landsraad. Members of the Landsraard were not allowed to participate. The prize was a copy of C&C Generals. After having agreed with EA to provide us a copy for the contest, I ended up paying for it and shipping it myself. I can't exactly remember the name of the person who won, but he came from Estonia or close by. Ahh those good 'ol times....

Was it all EA's fault again?

Right,

You want old timers!  I was last active (prior to today) way back in July 2004!

Since then I've finished off y11, GCSE's A levels, and now I'm most of the way through a masters in geology at Bristol University (UK)!

I have a quick question, do people like the Dune audiobooks?

I recently dl'd the first one from audible.  I've listened to only a little (until duke/nephew finish their "meeting".  I personally find it very good so far.

All is good,

Mike

I remember him for winning some tournament (he got a title below his nickname for it) and asking some Chemistry-related questions.
