At least the forum still exists, though, with like.... a couple active people maybe. Where'd everyone go? Is there a happenin' young Discord channel floating around there somewhere? Discord's all the rage these days as far as I can tell.

Boy, was I a small an naive young pirate back when I joined, intimidated by all the adults and confusing lewd jokes... (innocent under-socialized 14-year-old, now that's a fun life to live) and what is this forum avatar I made? Yikes, is what it is.

Anyway, I had an urge to come back on here after 8 years and reconnect with people I'd never actually connected with but admired, in a positive and fun community. Sad to see this place so quiet & hear that the familiar faces I remember are no longer with us. :cry:

But yeah, hello there to anyone still around. :fsm_float:

I think I remember interacting with a couple of them back when I joined, so it's definitely sad to know the prominent funny members are gone in one form or another. I'm glad the forum's not 100% dead though (just 98% it seems), thanks for responding!

I've been here and there, I remember stopping by here to lurk a long time ago after I'd abandoned it. (I guess I got too intimidated, or something? Always been a bit of a shy one...) Seeing people post about me in the birthday thread was always cool, even though I know it was always because of the "today's birthdays!" thing, it still felt really friendly back when I checked around.

Had a wild romp with a lass who convinced me I was a robot for about a month back in 2012, we both became ordained ministers here (although back in the day, the certificate came with a letter, not a PVC card... guess I'll have to significantly change my legal name & get re-ordained for that sweet wallet card loot since it's not available for separate order). Dated her for almost a couple years, nice learning experience, found a guy more suited to me after that and I've been enjoying his company a lot the past few years. I'm in college to learn how to make games, now; I lost several beloved pets over the past few years (last summer especially sucked) as well. A lot of stressful moving during and between and in causation of these various events.

One major difference between me now and me 8 years ago is that I grew up from a young lady into a handsome young lad :fsm_yarr: And I can drink now, so there's that! :drinking:

It's no big thing, it was 8 years of time to learn about myself and nobody here but the FSM can read minds, I assume. :haha:

If only that were where I was studying, then I too could be a Rockstar guy! I'm just studying at a community college in a middle-of-nowhere North Carolina town my family moved to during an unexpected move with not a lot of time to find anywhere new (which is probably why it's not in Dundee :cry:). After that, probably continuing to learn stuff at UNCC, since Charlotte's not far from this nowhere-ville.

The vibe I got was "these roads are the most confusing challenge level my family's driven in a while, but at least I've got a portable game console to play", personally. RIP on getting stranded there though, I definitely feel lynch-able in my small town so I get what you mean... :confused:

I'm glad the memories are mostly happy, though. That's always a benefit. I haven't visited enough yet, so I've only got neutral memories, neutral days.

Glad to see you then, and hope the Nef-watching goes well! It's probably a harder job without the others, but it's still nice to see familiar icons/names (I can't memorize everyone from 8 years ago good piratey sir, no hard feelings :guilty:)

Try not to knock the kid out too hard, it could lead to a real difficult to handle pirate when he's older...
...is he older, yet? If he isn't older yet then I'll have whatever he's having... keep my good pirately looks forever.

(Also, I'm extremely impressed that nobody changed their avatars in the past 8 years. That's forum dedication.)

My avvie's as old as this account, I'm probably a better artist now :haha: tempting to update it, though, but that seems like it would go against the timeless nature of the rest of this ancient pirate treasure of a forum.

I'm not dead... just yet.
In brightest day
In darkest night
No ninjas shall escape my sight
Let those who warrrship evil Unicorn's might
beware my power
Green Cannon's fire
