My account is over 4 years old already O.O

Yes, kind of miniscule in comparison to most of you, but jeez.

I was a right idiot back then, but hey ho I changed.

I'm almost at the end of high school, contrary to when I joined as I had barely started. So glad that it's almost over!

That's all that's happened since I joined. I just grew and became a Year 11 GCSE student. Yay.

It's really cool to see some of the "old guard" here, and I can't believe I've spent nearly a decade visiting this site...
Yeah the old guard is mostly gone, which is pretty sad.  I can't even think of all the people I remember getting used to seeing post every day and all the time.

Back when I was active all the time it was always people like Mike, Rex, Turner, Kay, CS10 and Lottie around (it's been so long that I can remember most of their first names but not their usernames, that's strange) and then everyone from the Spriting boards. It's kinda sad that that's all gone 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.
wasn;t you are special suicune rider's
also remember chiar lmao

also i'm a spriter i'm still here acknowledge meeeee

Where has the time gone?

Oh my gawdddd... has it really been that long?! I joined April 2004... that's nearly a decade! D:
I was 14 when I joined. Just hitting puberty. Man, let's not go there.

Now I don't even know who most of you kids are ;^;

...and if I do you've changed your usernames so I can't remember P:

I remember a time when getting PMs was a big deal, lol. I used to PM Mikey a lot about spiriting... sorry man, I dunno if you're still around... had a numel sprite for a long while... don't remember the username :s;

And Rex. Rex was pretty much centre of the social scene iirc. Tbh, Rex used to scare me a bit he was so popular P:

So was Jess, PsyKoViggy, she still around anywhere?

Can't remember a lot else other than I used to be in awe of all the spriters.

I don't get any PMs any more, it's really sad lol
This, lol.

Sadly Viggy left a few years back (4+ - I'm surprised it was that long ago) due to some drama that's long dead.

I know some people said I still shouldn't care about this but I honestly blame myself quite a bit for the inactivity of these boards; seemed like a bit of a snowball effect from that nonsense that went on 4-5 years back.  There was definitely a better way to speak up about issues in the forum more than the sensationalized crap I used to pull off and say, and there's definitely a time, a place, and a tact to be used.  I think that made people feel like they're walking on eggshells (especially after a few other crazy events happened) and ultimately leave as a result.

As I said earlier on the thread, my account will be 3 years old in July. Turned 14 less than a month ago.

I feel so young.

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.

Those were so good.

It isn't bumping if it's still on the front page right?

My lord, where has the time gone? I'm sure some of the old people might still remember me here, I still see a few familiar faces on this thread as well. Most of the people I see when I lurk (ever more sporadically unfortunately, no time with work and all) are all new to me. Is this the curse of aging? lol

This account turns 10 years old in a few weeks. My, how time has gone by. I just started playing the third generation when I joined the forums. Shocking to think that that was more than a decade ago. And boy have the forums changed drastically (though I swear to god it's still been using this same red color for years now, whatever happened to the l33t skin? That was bad ass.)

Good times. Good times. (I remember when O0 this smiley was first placed here lol)

I'm sad lol. Perhaps I should lurk moar.
Boo...

When I heard about the new Ruby and Sapphire remakes... there's only one place that came back into my mind.

Hope everyone is doing well!

I've been around here quite a few years. I don't know when I made my account, though the oldest post showing on my profile is from 2006. Oh and hello everyone!
