When I first heard of hosatchel I thought it was actually hosatchel and not boochsack youtube and thus

I also thought godix's sig about that one editor's profile sucking so bad was actually my profile so I changed my profile because of it and checked the next day to see if it still linked to my profile and realized it was some script or such and just lol'd.

It actually seems I was trying to be quite helpful even if my suggestions were a bit stupid.

I also joined all the meps (quite a bit anyways) despite only contributing to a couple.

Ahh, those were the days.

When I was first part of the org I was actually really shy. I was really scared to hear someone say "OMG YOUR AMV IS AWFUL NEVER MAKE AMVs AGAIN" :sweat: . I actually downloaded AMV to check them out and I updated my youtube a lot more (my 1st youtube account).

This is actually my first post.... http://www.animemusicvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=70582

I uploaded my first (halfway decent) AMV in the wrong aspect ratio. By the time I got it taken down, fixed and reuploaded, no one else viewed it or left a single comment on it. So all the feedback I got was on something that I'd put a lot of work into but ultimately looked like garbage.

During the hour or so that it was available for download, someone here did download it and then put it up on Youtube. That version now has over 2,000 views while the one on my channel with the correct AR (which doesn't even show up in Youtube search results) has only 157.

Well, starting out, I basically did three things that I look back on as rather "newbish" and awkward:

- First was not necessarily because my earliest AMVs use WMM, but I started out rendering my sources using DVD2AVI straight-up. Luckily, quite a few people in IRC steered me on the right path, and I started using more lossless reencodes and AVISynth further down the road.

- Second was using extended stops in my video footage while the music still went on. I look back on the videos I did that with (Rumic Aja comes to mind), and now I wonder why I did that. I just can't remember anymore. :?

- Lastly was a rather cheesy "Prototype/Production" label I used to give my videos. Initially, I didn't think much of it, but now I think it's rather tasteless (not to mention the animatics I used are rather bleh-looking).

Given the time and the opportunity, I will be remastering these older videos -- even though they are rather cringe-worthy right now, I still like the ideas in them. Just need to give them a more ... "modern" perspective :roll:

Besides announcing that horrible Evangelion Shakira AMV and expecting high praise for such a unique concept? (By the way, if anyone has a copy of that, I'd love to see it again XD) :lol:

I mostly remember being absolutely terrified users that had custom titles. I thought they were all admins/mods/etc. and that they were power users or something that could ban me for disagreeing with them or not liking their videos. :uhoh:

I also:

1) Wrote HORRIBLE opinions giving pretty much everyone 10/10 if they barely tried
2) Disagreed with any sort of feedback ever.

So yeah, typical stuff. |:>

I asked awkward rhetorical questions nobody was supposed to answer truthfully, like "what's the site approved way to get source before R2s are released?" :awesome:

Checked a few pages of old posts of mine, and my avs scripts from back then are quite embarassing. Oh boy, I almost get the urge to redact the posts before somebody might think it'd be a good idea to use them. :uhoh:

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.

Totally a shame. It would have been nice to have you here, at least for this thread. :(

Also, I think we got a necromancer :sorcerer: for necroposts now.

Well, I remember signing up for the site and not touching the forums until 2005 when I became coordinator of Youmacon's AMV Contest. First post was thanking Medieval for posting the rules for me because I was a silly noob and didn't think to post the rules to THE amv site in the US. Apparently, I didn't realize I had a forum account either. (what ever happened to brsrk anyway?)

viewtopic.php?p=718612#p718612

Then I went and posted my newest and greatest hottest AMV in the announcements forums (first time too!) and it was a gif video and has branded me ever since! I didn't even use vidid or anything (don't remember if that was available back then or not...) Apparently people hated my use of text in vids back then as well. Forever alone wolf liked it tho, so it's obvious even back then that we'd get along :D

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=53633&p=718993#p718993

I then apparently got active posting in lots of contest threads and trying to promote my own contests... I forgot I had tried to get MJ up to Detroit for an H IC. It is interesting seeing my current avatar in place for my posts back then. Fun times.

Still don't think I ever grew out of the awkward phase though....

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."
