MFGG Homecoming was the return and congregation of many long-time MFGGers to the current MFGG MyBB Forums, which began on June 30th, 2019 and was orchestrated by GeneralGuy.

On June 30th, 2019, King Piranha Plant (an oldbie from around mid-2003), returned to the forums and made a post in the Users that you miss topic. This immediately precipitated GeneralGuy to return as well, since he was quite fond of King Piranha Plant and reminisced about playing his old fangame Dodge The Shy Guys 2 back in September 2006, along with many other nostalgic memories from 2006 and 2007. Many members such as Vitiman, Yoshin and Q-Nova were very surprised and glad to see two prominent users return. GeneralGuy then responded to the thread here, wishing how he'd love to have all of the old MFGGers from the IPB Era come back, and stated that he would do whatever it took to make that happen.

GeneralGuy began conducting extensive detective work on July 1st, 2019, digging and rummaging through hundreds of old forum accounts on the archived IPB and phpBB forums for e-mail addresses and other means of contacting old users. He also used the MFGG Wiki to gather more information, such as alternate usernames and links to different website accounts. Along with sending over 180 e-mails to bygone MFGGers, he also contacted them through websites such as DeviantArt, Facebook, Twitter, Steam, YouTube, etc.

The first member to join from GeneralGuy's referral was Littlink on July 5th, 2019, followed by Thunder three days later. On July 9th, 2019, Mario Fan Games Galaxy was celebrating it's 18th Anniversary as a website. This tied in perfectly with the appearance of many old members who joined the new forums on the same day. This included but was not limited to: MegaTailzChao, Rob, Naoshi, Sponge, Medaforcer, EDGE and others. The very next day on July 10th, 2019, even more members joined such as Someguy, Ashura, Nnnk, Lee and Iceman3k. Many of these members, included those who were already on the new forms but were inactive such as Kritter and Shadowman, wished MFGG a Happy Birthday and were awarded a MFGG18.png badge.

Afterwards, many more MFGGers continued to join.
