Around 2 years ago, my account turned a decade old
« on: February 27, 2014, 20:16 »
Where has the time gone?  I want to use this thread as a nostalgia thread of sorts, with some emphasis on my awesome legacy here, but with much emphasis on how most of us here have grown and what we're doing with our lives.  It's almost an annual thread now, but it's one I hope you gys are looking forward to every year.

I'll make a bigger post later, because I have to print something out THEN do a mock presentation (I'm presenting some research I just did in Denver next week!) but I want to get the ball rolling with this thread.

Love yall,

Raven

my original account would be turning 10 years old in December, that's crazy to me. i feel hella old thinking that.

in 10 years i don't think i've really changed all that much (but maybe i have? i don't really remember young me). maybe i'm a bit more mean now but i dunno. i remember i used to want to be a writer like 10 years ago but i definitely don't any more haha. i don't feel anywhere near creative enough nowadays. i think i'm probably a lot more reserved nowadays as well. i used to post a fair amount back in the day (i don't think i ever got over like 1k posts total tho), but now i don't really post at all. i put that down to a lack of interests, since i won't post in stuff i don't really care about i guess, whereas back then i would've posted anyway probably.

i remember doing spriting and stuff, even tho i was always pretty bad at it. it was fun though so why not i guess. think i used to rp a bit as well, but i haven't had a reason to do it for a loooooooong time.

pkmn.net has been a fairly big part of my life for a long time, 2004-2009 this was like the only place i ever interacted with other people online on a regular basis, and all my online friends came from here, but then i got into streaming and stuff and the live chatting and stuff while watching video games was always more appealing to me i guess. still love coming here tho, even if i do just lurk and most of the people i were friends with back in the day aren't around as much/at all any more. i mostly fell out of touch with them anyway so i'm not too upset i guess. they were cool kids tho.

right now i'm at College doing a Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in ICT which is cool i guess. the natural progression would be to go into an IT based job but in an ideal world I'd get to go into something related to eSports because that's my passion, so we'll see how that goes I guess.

these topics are always pretty great because i get reminded of stuff i'd forgotten about. looking forward to seeing what everyone else shares~

also muhed's legacy isn't awesome it's bad like him and all (almost) 20k of his posts l0l get bodied bud j/k ur hella cool

My mom bought me this new laptop and it gets really hot when the chat is being spammed. Now my leg is starting to hurt because it is getting so hot. Please, if you don't want me to get burned, then don't spam the chat.

Denver huh? Considering the Mile High Miracle, I find that ironic.

Still, cheers man. I'll have been on the site 3 years come July. You know a lot about the NFL, which is nice. I've also heard you're a competitive battler worth his salt, who almost beat Rich (which is a miracle in its own right). We have to have a battle sometime.

You joined when you were 9? Holy cow!

Umm my account was 2 years old on the 21st of December 2013. I'm a real veteran  ;)

I guess I have changed quite a bit it two years though, when I first joined I was annoying as hell because I was just tryin'a be cool and failing miserably (still do).
Then I went through this stage when I used  ^.^ on like every post.
It's still my favourite smiley but omg it is like never appropriate.

Now I'm just like.... um my usual ridiculous self.

As for what I was doing then and what I'm doing now.
When I joined I was 13 (almost 14) and that meant I was doing GCSEs - in that year I was doing History and Spanish. (I used to be good at Spanish haahaha what does hola even mean?)
Now I'm 17 and doing A-levels.

Technically I haven't changed all that much haha

It's hard for me to be nostalgic here but I wanted to join the party woop woop

Pretty sure the topic title means days and not years! =P

Congrats though, Muhed! Man, it's crazy to think you've been here for 10 years! Time has gone by so quickly! I still remember the good ol' days when I looked to you and Raph to provide me with competitive battling knowledge. I think it was you that revealed the shocking secret that you can trade between Ruby and FireRed (I was a dumb kid okay), which meant I could raise Blaziken on FireRed and that meant a lot to me for some reason.

And if it means anything at all, I bet Muhed would still kick my ass if we played competitive 3rd gen!

I'm going on 9 years myself, so next year I get to make one of these topics and shoot the confetti shotgun and what have you. I've changed a lot since then, and a fair amount of that change has to do with this forum's members. I'm not quite as stubborn, not quite as clueless, and not quite as ~dark and mysterious~ (read: immature and stupid) as I was. I've got more to say, but I'll save that for when I make one of these topics next year. This is a day to celebrate Muhed's legacy!

Congrats again man. Here's to hopefully another 10 years!

It is funny to think... Joined this website nearly 9 years ago, being 9 years old. I remember my dad looking at this website to decide if it was appropriate and he only told me I wasnt allowed to post in random randomness, and I created my account with him. I started role playing almost right away, and got hooked on PUK.  I remember when I was like 10 I got my signature disabled and I was crying so hard because I didnt know what I did, so my dad sent an email to joeno to ask what happened xD

I just have these vivid memories of getting home from school, and getting right on here and role playing like crazy.

I still remember how hurt I felt when a user named glenwing told me to "crawl in a corner and die in the nicest way possible"

... And I just figured out what college ill be attending next year. Makes you realize how fast time really goes.

I've been here for 7 years now.
When I joined I was a socially awkward 13 year old who liked pokemon and green day, that hasn't changed lmao.
I got into spriting and did that for a while before going on to irc. I lived on #sp from 2008 - 2010 and that spawned various injokes like Bob, quoot, EXPOLODE and other stuff <3 did so many weird requests like custom trainers for Jamie from two pints of lager and one for John from Superjail. Also the castform with a bra for SR. Started drawing more in 2009, have gotten better or so I'd like to think aha. I rpd for a while too, remember Loz's within the within beyond the beyond and you are special. Also thauxan with its crazy page numbers and sequels.
I remember soooo much stuff from over the years, it's crazy how big a part of my teenage years this place was..
I deleted my account in 2011 but came back after like 2 months lol.
I'm now 20 and studying a design hnd. Still doing something arty after all those years!
I love these threads, old faces pop up.

Erm wow, I've been here for over 9 years... Don't really remember becoming active until I was in Uni though.

Lots of fun competing at MKDS Time Trials.
