    Default For how long have you been here?

    & I want to hear stories; how you got to join the forums, what you were like back then, if you've "changed" over time as a person & as a poster, or if you're still the same, what your funniest moments were on here, if there was ever a sad moment you spent on here... tell me all about it!

    I joined the forums when I was 17. I'm 24 now, so you do the math. I was at a friend's place & he was browsing the bbs & showing it to me. it was still the red & white board. I thought it was geeky & ridiculous, but he told me stories about people. about Linda, about Sunny, about Vicky, about Tizz, about Gem & I don't remember who else... it never occured to me till now he only told me stories about chicks on here. ;p while on the phone a few weeks later, or so, he asked if he could make an account for me on the bbs. he asked which name I wanted as my username & I picked "joy", because I thought it suited me. to make it extra bouncy & for aesthetic reasons, I asked him to capitalise the "J" & the "Y", so the two letters would capture the small "o" in the middle. it sounded like a great idea at the time.

    aside from the fact I was incredibly immature when I first joined, I haven't really changed much as a person, although the entire bbs has witnessed how my life was turned upside down at one point, less than a year after I joined. when I'd just turned 18, these forums were like a faithful loyal friend to me, but at the same time hosted a few folks that managed to hurt me very deeply. some people were nice to me, supported me & encouraged me, which, weird as it is, I will never forget. it's weird, because I'm not really cut out for this online bullshit.

    the Amsterdam meet-up, with all the inside jokes & stupidity evolving around it, I will definitely never forget. those were definitely the funniest moments I've had on here.

    although I said I don't think I changed as a person, I think I changed a lot as a poster. when I look back at old posts of mine in the archives, I see I wasn't really serious about anything & I was so incredibly bouncy. my posts were short, contained lots of smileys if I remember correctly & were ridiculously happy most of the times.

    your turn!

    I first joined in early 05. I'm 19 now and don't feel like doing the math. When I first got here, I was annoying and stupid. Like, I have a REALLY hard time looking at my old posts because of how I'm not even close to the same person. I noticed that change in myself a few days before creating my new account. Overall, it seems to have been a generally good move to change accounts. As some of you remember, my behavior was somewhat along the lines of Bipolar Bear's a few months ago. I don't think it took me long to change, though, and since I stopped being, well, annoying, I really feel like my time spent here has had a giant boost in quality and enjoyability. Still, though, if given the opportunity, I'd kick my old self's ass.

    I got my fisrt computer late 2001. Evrything was so new to me but either way I would only spend it on Alanis and Offspring websites.

    I used to hang around the chatroom a lot, trying to talk to fans although I couldn't speak English well back then. I remember browsing the boards, but did not register. Unfortunately the chatroom died and the only person I remember from the chatroom is UglyElf. Then I had a break and only came back in 2004, after the band played in Brazil.

    I think I am still the same person as I used to be, happy and friendly. My English has improved a whole lot and most of it due to the fact that a lot of people were patient to help me here.

    The funniest moment I think was a day when everybody stopped being jerks at each other, and there was a topic in which everybody was loving each other. That was silly, but funny. This is something I remember well.

    I also remember that I still owe Bella a bottle of Brazilian Pinga!
