View Full Version : I haven't logged on here for nearly 2 years o.O

December 27th, 2007, 6:15 PM
This is VERY strange.. I never expected to come back to Pokecommunity.

Yep, the title is right, I haven't been logged in here for two years.. Well, at least since January 29th, 2006. The two year mark is coming pretty darned close.

I'm surprised it's been that long.. Anyway, I pretty much left PC because I went onto Nintendo's Nsider, but they closed back in September, so I've been lurking on t3h intraw3bz for a forum community, and perhaps I'm back.

ANYWAY, to prevent this from being a triumphant return thread, how's about I ask a question to you guys? Have you ever been gone from PC or an internet forum you used to avidly visit for long periods of time, like me? Really, PC and Nintendo's Nsider have been my only true 'homes' on the internet, if you know what I mean. PC is the reason I got onto internet forums in the first place.

And there are still people on the online list that I know. o.O

OVP seems like the place for this.

I went back to look at my myspace after letting it gather up cobwebs for about 5 months. Does that count? PC is my home, no other Pokemon forum will come close to the quality of it, and I speak of the entire community altogether.

I've joined marriland and I would say that place has horrid welcoming hand, I haven't gone back since PC's weeklong blackout (was it a week?)

Omg there was so much spam comments... and I watched my myspace die.. lol.

December 27th, 2007, 10:36 PM
I've never really left a forum for an extended period of time and then returned, but I've "made myself scarce" on some forums before. only post 3-5 times a week...and then suddenly start posting more like 20-30 a day
I never really LEAVE forums and then return, because if I like the forum, I have no reason to leave, and if I don't like the forum, I have no reason to return

December 28th, 2007, 7:30 AM
I migrated to Nica's forum and neko's forum during the blackout

Thats all ^^;

I left PC for 1.5 years after December, 2005 to focus on my studies/because I hated the DCC mean people =x. Joined IGN in January, 2007 then left for a new stint in PC (because I felt like having nostalgia.) (Somewhat) ironically, now I spend a lot of my time on DCC.


December 28th, 2007, 7:39 AM
well welcome back (i have left a forum before it was a vivapinata forum it use to be my life but then i guess the game got boring)

December 28th, 2007, 8:51 AM
Yes, I used to go to PI alot, then I didn't log in for who knows how many months, I can't remember. But I go there a little more now. XD

December 28th, 2007, 11:59 AM
The only time I leave a forum I like is when I move and have no access to the computer. I don't think I've ever been gone more than a month.

I've only really dropped activity at one forum, and that wasn't becuase I didn't like it; it was because I was so forgetful, and I hate going on after a few days of unexcused absence. So I kept putting it off and off until I just didn't think about it. XD;

well i don't use myspace no more buy my account is still active n it says i haven't logged in since "4/21/06"

December 28th, 2007, 12:34 PM
I have been absent from here. For 18 months I was gone. Through no fault of my own.
The school had blocked PC and I had no way of accessing PC. I never quite found another forum to call home. No place was the same. I missed PC so much. When I came back in april I was happy again. I even got a warm rewelcome and made more friends than before.

December 28th, 2007, 12:43 PM
I used to go to the PokéMasters forum. It was my first forum and I posted there avidly for over a year. Then I got modded and... a few months later I got modded at PC. I slowly stopped going to TPM and eventually was demoted. XD; I've only been back once or twice since. I check in every now and then, but I never post because the forum I posted in is more or less dead. :\

There are probably a few other forums I used to post at and completely ignore now but... I don't remember them. XD

December 28th, 2007, 12:49 PM
I'm gone for months at a time because I'm constantly being grounded. I never leave just because I'm bored with the place. Lurking if fun~

December 28th, 2007, 3:21 PM
Yep. At least here at PC, I always used to go on hiatus because of personal issues and mostly because I didnt have time for PC. You know what school and real life can do to you. XD

December 28th, 2007, 7:41 PM
Well, I haven't been here for a while, haha - but I came back mostly because I wanted to RP again, and I missed the people on here too. :D Plus, I have more time now, hmmmm.... :/

I was very active at thequietworld.com until i got banned for speaking out against those freaks. I began looking for a forum with COOL people who didnt throw the rule book in your face for every word you said. I stumbled upon this place and I'm proud to call it home =]

Ummm yeah... well I tend to randomly be inactive at times.

December 29th, 2007, 4:23 AM
I've joined alot of forums... actually, for most of them, I was only active for a day, and haven't returned... but I only remember them if I'm in the mood to search for stuff, and go back to those links. (Most of the other forums I've joined suck unlike PC which is a much better forum than the other ones :3 Now if they only knew I didn't mean that -cough-) For PC, I haven't been inactive for a long time... and same for BF.

Everything else now I don't care about.

December 29th, 2007, 5:53 AM
Well I have left PC for about 2 years because something major came up and wasn't able to come back to PC. I just recently came back in May. I really missed everyone on PC. I really hope I don't do it again.

December 31st, 2007, 3:40 AM
Wow, 2 years? That's a long time.

I've been gone from PC for about 5 months because of school studies.

That is a long time... o_o

I can't say that I've ever left a forum for two years..
Then again, I've only been on forums for about 4 years now, so... ^^;

Still, I recently logged into another Pokemon forum (Mt. Moon Community) for the first time in basically a year,
though. I think my last login date was like.. January 06. xx;
I honestly didn't think it had been that long.

PI forums are probably the same...

I did leave Serebii for over a year, once though.
My account got deleted during that time, so I had to sign up again.

(Lots of Pokemon forums.. xD )

December 31st, 2007, 3:47 PM
Yeah I'm banned on serebii for three months.

December 31st, 2007, 4:22 PM
Well I signed up in 04' and was on for like 5-7 months.
Then I was gone for like....
1.5 years...o_O
Then I was back for about a year...
Then left for like 6 months....
And came back and have not left since!!!

January 5th, 2008, 8:44 AM
I left for 40 days in late october to about early december, but i came back.

January 6th, 2008, 3:07 AM
I went to Pokemon Crater forums, because I liked it more, then that went down on December 1st, lol. Yeah, when I got banned from Crater for 2 weeks to a month, I was always here. So it's pretty much leaving there for here, but whatever. =\

I've left here for like a month and a half. When I came back, the DCC was way different to me, so I don't post there anymore.

Now I only come on when there's nothing to do.

January 10th, 2008, 2:07 PM
Well I'm a member at the Vancouver Canucks forum and though I still go back and post from time to time I havn't reall been active for about a year and a half.
It's always busy over there and their's tones of flamming, but I like it cause of the hockey talk.

January 10th, 2008, 2:16 PM
i always read this forums. and i registred a week ago for the first time.

January 10th, 2008, 9:05 PM
Was gone in small intervals every so often.
The impulse to look at the boards here come and go.

January 11th, 2008, 12:41 AM
Many sites, the Pokecommunity included (on and off, once leaving for a month or two and another leaving for about a year and a half). I used to be a regular at Neopets but I left it as well, only to return a short while ago.

One time I was gone from this forum for about six months(almost a year). October 2006 til April 2007. I really didn't leave because I got tired of this place, it was because my computer was on the fritz. I didn't know what I could do, so I was gone for a long time. That was the most I been gone too. But I am back, and all is good again. It would have been two years if my brother didn't figure out what happened to my computer. I was lucky he was around.

There was one point 2 years ago when I received my first horse, and I lost interest in PC completely for a little while. I quit my position here and spent most of my time training my horse for about 6 months, I think. When winter came around and I couldn't work with the horse as much, I came back, and was promoted to moderator once again a few months later.

Other than that, I've joined so many forums but I've never been able to be active at all of them. D: I've been here for nearly 4 years now.
