  • Fernando Ruiz: I don't know where the idea originated for the "Archie meets Archie" story. I know one day Victor Gorelick gave me the assignment to write a story where the current Archie meets the first appearance Archie. It was going to be for a digest celebrating whatever anniversary they were celebrating. That.
    November 17, 2019, 02:47:30 am
  • Mr.Lodge: The first batch of "Memory Lane" stories were the best but were never given the chance to "conclude" properly. The 10th Anniversary one are total crap.....

  • Tuxedo Mark: @Fernando Ruiz I never heard that before! Good to know! :)
    November 16, 2019, 06:08:57 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Nice to establish that. I forgot about that Twilight Zone episode! But of course, the phrase "a stroll down Memory Lane" is a familiar euphemism, so TZ took that as a literal plot device. The Memory Lane stories were the beginning of a fertile period for ACP, idea-wise.
    November 16, 2019, 05:05:30 am
  • Fernando Ruiz: Responding to the comments for the "When Archie Meets Archie" review, the idea for "Memory Lane" was mine. I borrowed it from an old Twilight Zone episode and thought it was a nice convenient device for the story.

I'm happy to report that the forum is finally back online after nearly a week. Unfortunately, all posts and other data was lost due to a series of hardware failures and no backups (the host claimed to do nightly backups but for whatever reason that option was never enabled on the server).

Everything should be pretty much the way it was, although the gallery will be returning later (I've opted to go to a more integrated gallery option this time rather than using an external system as we had before), and I haven't yet decided if I'm going to put a wiki back up since it wasn't used much to begin with.

Please let me know if you run into any problems or have any questions. Have fun!
