Is SizeMatters (LS) Still Around?Follow

Hey Vaelforians!

I was just thinking back to my FFXI days and wondering if my old Galka Linkshell (SizeMatters) was still active. If they are, I doubt many of my former commrades are still playing (I played in 2004-2005), but just in case I thought I'd check.

If anyone could point me in their direction, I'd be grateful.

Thanks,
~Sevrin
Former 60 WHM/BLM

Oh man, I remember Sizematters so well!

They were one of the LS's I missed most, even if I had a couple run-ins with them..

Maybe you'll even remember me, I was the Tarutaru that snuck in secretly, constantly hidden so no one would know if I was online. I lasted a month or so like this until I finally revealed myself, and I worked really hard to be able to be in permanently as an exception, but didn't quite cut it. They decided to make a sister LS for other races, but it failed miserably.

Anyways, I may even remember you! I remember events to every detail, but I always forget names..

My name was Sonhe, the Tarutaru white mage. Do you remember me?

Er, and about the LS.. I mean I Haven't been here in a really long time, so I'm not swearing on this so I AM NOT SURE IF THIS IS TRUE...

... however ...

I heard they renamed their LS to something different. Possibly due to the leader quitting, or God only knows why. Maybe someone can point you in the right direction? Last I heard, they were still around though.. just under another name.

Good luck!

Wow, awesome. Glad we had enough of a presence to be remembered how ever many years later. Looking back, one of my first posts on Alla was on the Galka forums, looking for a Race specific LS on the server. Responses pointed to SizeMatters and suggested contacting Graveheart, WhiteDevil (who I eventually got my pearl from :)), Ravel, Kodatsuku, Melfalik, Atilla, or Calmwon. If any of them still play (hard to imagine, but possible I suppose) I'd love to drop them a line.


Sorry Sonhe/TheReal... Name rings a bell, but my memory is super hazy from those days (unless I can find old forum posts to jog it ;p). Actually had to go back and make sure I had Sevrin spelled right, and I may be remembering 'Sonhe' (or something similar) from WoW or other games I've played since. But I do recall our ranks being infiltrated by the occasional Taru or Mithra.

Well, I am not so sure about this piece of information but... I think I heard some years ago that the "SizeMatters" LS had reformed (I don't recall the reason) and that its name was now "Size".

Can anyone confirm if that's the case? I am not trusting my memory on this one.
And, in the case I happen to be correct, can anyone point the OP in the right direction?

Fellow Galka here....

SizeMatters disbanded, and there has been several recreations of that Ls since

Size, then SizeUnited.

I believe SizeUnited is still around with a few die hard galka friends that formed from that ls.

I was apart of Size and SizeUnited

But people that I know who are still in game that was apart of those Ls's

Professor, BigBadBaldi, Cacklingbigfoot, Fangtangulis (current leader), Thundaar, Eyecor, loomingrazor, Bankor and a few others I cant remember at this time.

I remember Prof, Fangtang and Bankor. Thundaar sounds familiar too. Frankly, I'm kindof shocked (& pleased) to see so many recognizable names are still playing.

Excellent info. Thanks!

!!! Totally remember Brielle. :) Always asking for our pearl... tsk.

Please let Grave, Prof, et al that Sevrin sends his best. Dont know if they'll remember me at all, but that was a real solid group and part of me misses being a part of it.

Thanks again for the info.

I remember being in that LS too. I actually got my pearl from Ravel and would email Thundaar from time to time. I remember Dieselone leveling Smn in Valkurm with a lv 1 Whm sub lol. Shonuff, Gunarm, Professor, lolBrielle, Bankor, Darkchaos. I haven't played regularly in about a year but I remember Size, SizeMatters, SizeUnited and the endgame shell Pro put together College. It was just picking up when I stopped playing last July. I came back for a month in Feb i think but didn't really contact anyone.

Those were the good ol' days. This post makes me wanna come back and play lol.

Ravel still plays and is in my limbus shell, Brielle as far as I can tell still pops on every once in a while for ? Shonuffdl still plays, I run into him every once in a while, not too recently though. I don't really see any of the other names too often.

QFT

Actually, on this wave of nostalgia, I took it upon myself to do a bit of webstalking reasearch *ahem* and tracked down one of the sackholders from the time I got my pearl who still plays. :p Dropped him a line to say hi and (Try to) fill in some blanks as far as what came of SM/Size/SU.

He was kind enough to get back to me. Sounds like the game and server population just evolved to the point where shells like SM became obsolete... that's unfortunate, but understandable. We were already starting to lose key members to endgame LS's by the time I left.

So... I'm kinda up to speed. But, regardless, its very nice to see so many memorable names are still active.

I was in SizeUnited. Dexsara and Irondestruction are in my current LS. In fact, Dex just escorted me to Halvung Staging point the other day lol. Professor has a new LS that him and few other guys from Size made called College. They are hardly ever on and it's a really small LS. There are a few other members from the old LS that I see every now and again in White Gate that I throw that 'ol Galkan salute to.

Wow, brings back the memories.

I was a part of Sizematters, Size, and then SizeUnited for a small time as Awesomeman.

I still remember Kodatsuko and Arowheels leveling mnk and pld when I was starting out, and getting my pearl from Graveheart in Sandy. I was there when Professor created Size in Bastok, great times with all those galkas.

Makes me want to play again too.

Oh, and about Gunarm...I seem to remember hearing something about him stealing a few mil in items (at the time, now probably worth 500k) and jumping servers soon after transfer started or something, was a while ago. I could be completly wrong and be thinking of another galka, though.
