Believe it or not, we were so popular that about ten years ago Wiz Khalifa used to frequent the forums every now and then. Turns out he's a huge Chrono Trigger fan (as can be witnessed with some of the CT samples he would use).

This place isn't a graveyard, but definitely in an era of calm with few new members and not much activity. The thing that is going to change that is Square Enix actually doing something with the series...

...I mean, even the Steam release saw only a small uptick in activity and new members. It is what it is.

Either way, I still like this place. :)

Wait, really? He was that Wiz Khalifa?

it's plausible. one of his songs sampled Schala's theme (which jumped out at me as you can imagine).

He and I exchanged a few PMs. I'm pretty sure it was him. If it wasn't, it was someone a harmless troll who was a REALLY big fan of WK to the point it new a few intimate details of his life and manner of speaking.

I mean, that can all be imitated and likely found with Google-fu, but seeing that they weren't trying to do anything malicious (as a troll normally would) and based on the way he spoke, I'm pretty convinced it was legit.

Even if it wasn't, it was all fun.

Holy crap that Wiz Khalifa song "Never Been" uses Schala's song!

...how come Square didn't cease and desist him?

From my understanding, sampling is somehow covered under fair use copyright. Something about it being transformative from the original piece or something.

For some reason you blocked in Russia. But thanks to VPN.

This is probably due to the Russian bots we had running rampant a while back. Glad you made it though!

I can be really loud and horribly persistant to keep life alive here. Also my favorite forum ever is closing down, so this can be the one I check from my phone 3 times a day now. I cannot code and I'm not the smartest regarding time travel, but I love CT, and I write fanfiction, some temporal, and lots of yuri romance, some with Lucca and Marle, some with Lucca and Ayla, but I can write more if need be!

I just got the smallest lesbian vibe from Lucca and Ayla. Even before I knew about the mistranslation, somehow I just knew.

The world always needs more yuri romance.  :D

Are any posted anywhere?

Yeah on ffnet

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12274144/1/Mistletoe

First one is a christmastime short one and

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11170392/1/Lucca-Strong-Too

The 2nd is a 2 chapter comedic short sort of. I've got maybe 15 stories on there, all yuri, and Im currently working on like 50 stories, 2 of which are Chrono Trigger ones that I hope to have done soon. If youre interested, feel free to review for me, thats always motivation to get back into something even more.

Viva the compendium!

I read them both, nice work. I'll check out the Strawberry Panic and Yuru Yuri stories later.

I was actually talking about Lucca x Ayla with a friend recently, and may be putting some effort into a related project soon.

What's this mistranslation you're referencing?
