The Ever Changing Sputnik

So, my third Sputnik anniversary is nearing and I'm starting to feel that aging that those notable old users always talked about. It mostly comes from that feeling of nostalgia as all those old users you used to know and accept as staples on the site turn 23 or something and move on with their actual lives. As for me, I joined when I was 12 and am now an antisocial 15, so I think I'll be here for a while longer, but I've already seen what seems like generations of Sputnikers moving on and the torch of some aspects of the userbase being passed on (Dave's modding went to Dev, Crandy's shitty reviews went to HillaryClitTongue, etc.). Below are a list of users off the top of my head that I'm seeing a lot on the site nowadays, and some I remember fondly. The albums displayed are the first albums that came to mind when thinking of each of their respective users. Feel free to add your own bros/thoughts/epitaphs down below!
1 Current hangers-about
2the pillows
Fool on the Planet


YakNips - I've been seeing this guy daily for the past month and he seems pretty cool. Likes "FLCL" so we're buds.
3Pixies
Doolittle


Trebor17 - as you know, Trebor hit contrib recently and has been writing regularly, so I guess you could say he's moving up in the Sput-chain, but he's been here since around when I got on and he was always a significant part of the userbase, as well as one of the cooler dudes on the site. Good luck on getting promoted, Treb!
4Bomb the Music Industry!
Scrambles


Kman418 - always a big punk fanatic, always has a tasty avatar, and is always cool. :)
5Mathew Lim
Impressions


Skele/DragonHeartstring - oh Skele, how I wish you will never change! If you guys didn't know, he's still doing his YouTube thing so hit up the account "Marik Ishtar" for some mad Anglo-Jamaican rhymes.
6Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion


Deviant. - remember that point when Dev was nowhere to be found for a while and we weren't getting those news blog posts every week? Anyway, glad to have you back, Dev, and glad to see you dropping witty lines on ignorant niggas.
7Pianos Become the Teeth
The Lack Long After


XingKing - you'll find Xing on skramz threads all the time and he's one of those users with much stronger or more controversial opinions on albums, which is definitely one of the more admirable traits to have on this site. Check his solo skramz project, Warren of Ohms. http://warrenofohms.bandcamp.com/
8Saves the Day
Stay What You Are


Cygnatti - a user who has a much clearer perspective on how he rates albums than the rest of us: a lot of his 3.5s are more like 4s or 4.5s for me, even though I think we'd feel similar about such albums, and when I think about it, his ratings are probably more fitting.
9The Wonder Years
The Greatest Generation


joshieboy12345 - the Aussie pop punk kid with that goddamn Aussie meme for his avatar which I hate so fucking much.
10bansheebeat
Spiral Power


Rev - Rev, who will always be TheReverend724 to me, is of course Sputnik's very own bansheebeat. He rocks as hard as he Reasons or animes, making for an all round awesome dude. Hell, I've checked out anime just from Google Image-searching his avatars, and I haven't been disappointed so far. http://bansheebeat.bandcamp.com/
11American Football
American Football


IbenizGEO1 - seeing him around heaps. Pretty nice guy but his ratings have been the target of dispute.
12Trophy Scars
Darkness, Oh Hell


John "Kisses Boys/Hipster/Legendary User" Hanson/Iluvatar - it's true that Hanson's not on this site as often as he used to be, but it's always pleasant when he drops by.
13Streetlight Manifesto
The Hands That Thieve


demigod93 - outside of metal, I feel we have similar music tastes. Great guy out on the threads, and he once did me a favour involving a certain ska record which I'm still grateful for to this day.
14 Peeps I miss or don't hang out with as much
15Altar of Plagues
Teethed Glory and Injury


Ipodmastery/Rob Garland - Rob joined after me and we became friends on a few threads back when he was starting up. I dropped off Sputnik for a few months a while ago and we haven't talked as much since because of our different music tastes, but I have him on Facebook. He's got a review site now (Melting Album Reviews).
16Laura Stevenson
Sit Resist


Maniac! - speaking of review sites, Maniac's one is doing well. I forgot what it's called, but it's grown since he started it up way back. I miss his Pennywise avatar!
17Taylor Swift
Red


SowingSeason - Sowing just left, but even prior I didn't encounter him as much as I used to. I really feel the Sputnik-age with respect to Sowing especially because I remember his lengthy, lengthy stint as a Contributor and his victorious promotion to Staff FINALLY (for much of that time he had that skimpy avatar of that lingerie chick whose name I can't remember for the life of me). Salute to Sowing in his future away from this damned site.
18The Tallest Man on Earth
The Wild Hunt


Douglas - Douglas is a user that I haven't encountered in a long time, but I remember nice chats about The Tallest Man on Earth and The Gaslight Anthem. Not sure if he's still around, but I'm pretty sure he's not.
19Rush
Moving Pictures


Sonictheplumber - I think one of the infamous acts passed down by Deviant after his mod promotion was the 6 month banning of Sonic, who was undoubtedly one of the most prominent users of the site, but I haven't seen him around very much at all since that ban. He was hit-and-miss fun, but fun nonetheless.
20Yellowcard
Ocean Avenue


Deathofasalesman - I think he's Australian, in which case I am saddened his departure. Aussie Sputbro numbers wane as the months go by...
21The Mountain Goats
Transcendental Youth


Aids - I was surprised when Aids mentioned he doesn't Sput as much anymore: I hadn't really noticed (especially since his promotion). Write some more reviews, man!
22 I
don't fucking know


Monica Skoko or whatever her name was - Chinchillin'...seriously, do you guys remember her? STAFF IN TWO REVIEWS!
23Big Black
Songs About Fucking


Porch - I know he's still around, but I wish he would get into more heated debates. He was always insightful if a little condescending, and a blast to talk to.
24Defeater
Empty Days and Sleepless Nights


Kris/UhhKris - ah...miss this guy.
25Mumford and Sons
Sigh No More


Adam Knott - ByVolume's picking up a little (I miss the PDF format), and I wish him the best of luck with it!
26Love American
Disquiet


redskyformiles - I miss this guy's input. I have him on Facebook but we never talk, and he recently got back to a marginal amount of rating, but I'd like to hear him reviewing again (he quit ByVolume), especially since he rated the new Brave Bird a 2. Oh yeah, Love American broke up and everything. http://loveamerican.bandcamp.com/
27Fugazi
Red Medicine


SeaAnemone - Famous for his insane list making skills, the legendary SeaEric left the site to fend for themselves in the realm of post-hardcore.
28Beau Navire
Hours


Enotron - had the best profile picture eva, also interesting to talk to.
