Re-introducing myself

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Forum members,

This is an introduction to many of you, and a re-introduction to some of you.

As you can see from my profile, I used to be quite active in this forum back in the days. During a couple of years in the mid-00s, I maintained a site called hakkeyoi.net - perhaps you could call it a precursor to sumodb.sumogames.de. The site also hosted a few of the games, such as Sekitori-Quad and Sekitori-Oracle.

In mid-2006 I went AWOL and suddenly stopped participating in the sumo community. Without going into details, in the summer of 2006 I was kind of depressed mainly due to a faltering career, and sumo didn't seem very important at the time. So I left the online sumo community and stopped maintaining my site.

Eventually things turned around for me, but by then I had lost the sumo bug and frankly felt a little awkward about returning to the forum again, considering how I left without notice.

I don't know what prompted me to browse sumoforum.net a couple of weeks ago, for the first time in years. I noticed that although the software has changed, all the old posts are still retained, which is fantastic. And many of the old hands are still around. To those of you who wondered what happened to me: please accept my humble apologies for disappearing like that and not getting in touch earlier. (Feelingguilty...) 

I don't plan to be as active as I used to be, but I'll at least take a shot at GTB. (Thinkingindepth...)

Welcome back. (Punkrocker...) Out with shin-ozeki Hakuho, in with shin-ozeki Asanoyama. You haven't missed much, I reckon. B-)

Yes, I remember Hakuho. Is he any good? (Dohyo-iri...)

Not really (if you only read what's been written about him in the last year)

Hmmm...seeing Leonishiki's kesho mawashi, I'm reminded that someone used to make those things.  Anyone remember who?  Would love to see my Yang-Gnome picture on a kesho mawashi.  Would be quite hilarious to me.

Oh, and welcome back Kashunowaka!
