Totally a shame. It would have been nice to have you here, at least for this thread.
I know right? I think my post would say something like, "I necroposted a bunch of stuff without realizing it, and then someone insulted me and hurt my feelings, so I left the org and never came back...until now."
I actually just realized that your join date was that long ago. For some reason I thought you were only around for the last year or so
My 10th anniversary of the .org is gonna be next week
I still feel kind of like... I haven't been around that long, but I guess you can't call me a newbie, huh!
My stage was opposite of most people's. I came in here with prior experienced on some ROM translation boards, and while I did have an interest in anime and AMVs, I didn't join because I was dying to make them. I actually showed up on the .org specifically because I was REALLY ANGRY at the fact that there was a billion AMVs to stuff like Linkin Park and other music I scoffed at, but literally 0 AMVs at music I liked. I, of course, thought that because I knew who Robert Fripp was, it meant I was at least several times smarter than everybody. I went on a bunch of really pretentious (and largely meaningless) rants at people, used a lot of big words, and kind of acted like, well... a douche. Later on when I got to know people better, they were surprised to discover that I was actually NOT 40-something years old, because I always sounded old and cranky. Among other things, I thought koopiskeva was a hateful weirdo and Rozard was a total d-bag.
When I joined, I went on a small posting spree pretty much asking people to give me reasons why AMVs are not shit and why I should even give this community a chance, or consider making AMVs myself. I literally set a deadline for myself - I would give the .org 3 days, and if I found no reason to stay here, I would just leave.
Well, we know where I am 10 years later...
My first post was a newbie question that noone answered (and actually a pretty legitimate one at that). I actually came back and answered it myself much later on viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2163&p=245059#p245059
And while it's no longer publically viewable, this was my introduction post:
So yeah, basically I was kind of just a big douche
