I was going through some posts I had made AGES ago today just for the hell *is off sick from uni so...has alot of time* XP and I noticed some posts I made in my old welcome thread from 2005 XD

I just thought it would be fun to discuss your welcome threads and old posts we all made that looking back on we would all think "OMG".

I suppose this is for the old members more than anything lol...well I say old I'm not that old lol...anyways yeah but the new members/not so old members are more than welcome to join in on past times ^_^

I didn't know whethere to put this here or in OVP but I thought it was more of a discussion thread than a question.

Anyways, here is my old welcome thread: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=31457

Yeah...OMG...

Some of the stuff I said makes me cringe a little and I STILL RPG as much as I use to in my posts! XD I was so innocent. >> <<

That was mine... not too long ago =)

I still waffle just as much and I love that thread because I made friends with Beachboy and he is just weird... funny weird XP

Aurapostle waffled back so that made me feel better.
I wouldn't say I was young and innocent XP

Just weird and nervous.

Hah @ other introductions because at least your intros were... neat. >:|

How about my disaster of a welcome thread? http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=124987 (Shame, only two welcomes)

All I can say is... I've come a long long way. Not a single person would believe that n00b is where he is today. Back when I was new, gee, I was both intimidated by staff and numerous people, and scared to fit in. I'm glad I eventually did though. Looking through the past to see how you've developed is fun. X) Great topic, Shadowfaith.

=) I like your intro,,, hahaha you seemed so sweet and innocent and new! Obviously new but yeah, you know what I mean XP

hopefully I can make a PC name for myself here hehehe you sir achieved your goal. XP

o.o ermm the first big forum I joined, I was a bit new to forums and I was a teeny bit newbish when it came to err well I don't know, just new to forums but I soon got into the graphics scene and helping other members , I felt like I fitted in, was another pokemon forum. =) A really big active one like this one so I wasn't a newbie at forums when I came here but I was really surprised by the warm welcome I got...I thought someone would shoot me for burning their eyes out with my wafflness.

Lol I was exactly the same when I joined here. I was as intimidated as joining SPPF for the first time though, in fact this place was very chilled compared to XD. I think anywhere is to be honest with you XD
But I just couldn't fit in here at first and then I came back for a second try and ended up...MAKING FRIENDS =O

Ahh...Beachy I love your welcome thread. I would have posted if I knew that you'd be this popular. ^^

I was a living hell when I was a new member...heck I didn't know any BB codes or anything so I kept posting asking, "How do you those pictures?" and such. My welcome thread wasn't a pleasure as well. The only two members still active who posted in my welcome are Eon-Rider (CoolMaster I believe) and Virtual Headache.

XD BeachBoy, one of your nicknames is Rybread? Mine too, haha. I'm guessing that might mean your last name starts with a B, but then again Rybread is decently common for Ryans.

And pshhh, you make yourself seem all n00bish back then, but using a thousand smileys doesn't grant you n00bness, p0steg lyk dis migaht tho. (<---I think n00bs aren't even smart enough to do that..)

For the sake of all Natural Order, I will not post my no0b times.

If I had a dollar right now for every noob I was worth back then, I would have 42 dollars.

You can check it out for yourself, but you will think I hacked a little 5 year old's account. And my God, have I come a very long way @~@. I almost can't believe that was me.

Lol....Mine was kinda lame. I should have written a lot more, but at least a bunch of people commented ^____^

Oh, and then it ended up getting locked by Beachy because someone revived it after it was like 5 months old. So yeah....that wasn't my fault XD

At least I didn't post fifty thousand smileys in my welcome unlike some n00blets *cough*Beachboy*cough* ^__________^

It's because I modded NU/W when you joined. I welcomed EVERYONE. XD;

Also, Beachboy, those smilies make my eyes burn. :( Not really but you get the idea.


Anyway, where'd I stash that thread? Here! (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=8162) Back in the days where Dakota still worked here, where Angela still loved Ash, and I was noobish and obsessed with spriting. :(

So yah, I didn't want people to know I came from SPPF because I thought you guys were meanies, LOL.

I didn't like my posting style back then at all. *heart*??? Wtf? ;_;</3

I don't believe I ever created a welcome thread. If I did, it's not there now. XD; So I'm gunna just say how I found PC and my first thread. ;__;

My first thread was for my sprite comic that I had made. I posted it on Serebii and another forum first and got extremely mean and negative reviews for it, so I searched again and can't remember how I found PC exactly, but found it and saw a sprite comics section, so I joined up under the name The_Pokemon_Hossier (ugh) and got some positive comments on the comic(At least, I think they were positive), so I decided to stay. And then I spent my first year or so on PC only in the Sprite Comics area, never venturing elsewhere. Finally, my friend Seifer convinced me to get MSN and I did and then finally began going to other sections on PC. XD;

Wow, too sweet, and some run-on sentences. Account is obsessive over angels and Latias. D8

Welcome thread of this account (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=85672)

Omigosh, TB has evolved into super sweet! The change of ^_^ to ^-^ is terrible.. I started them the same way with "Hi everyone" to show how uncreative I am. More long and dreadful sentences. No one I know today bothered welcoming me because I was that lame.

And somehow, my occupation over the years has changed from being the "Messenger of God" to "Creeper".. Amusing.

My welcome thread(s) are on another PC, far far away from here. Or lost forever, take your pick. :(

I do remember my welcome thread on the old PC made it to like two or three pages. XD; Mind you, this was back when there wasn't a rule about people replying twice to a welcome thread. But still! It was very impressive for a random new member back then. I happened to previously know a fair few popular members from other forums who were mods, s-mods, just plain popular, etc. So I got lots of greetings from them PLUS all the people who stalked them. Good times. :] I wasn't a noob or anything way back then, but I did overuse smilies. I still do, but man not to the same extent as before.

I was trying to look back and find my earliest available posts on this board, since they probably wouldn't be that much different from my actual first posts, but I can't even see any from 2003. :(

edit: god I hate you, IE. I did not hit send. STILL TYPING THIS BRB.
edit #2: okay nvm
edit #3: WAIT WAIT WAIT look what I found ♥ (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=872). It's the staff "hay i'm new 8D" thread SA made when the boards were reset and we all posted in it. Close enough! XD

I never made a welcome thread. Never liked those forums so I've avoided them on all the forums I've been on. As you can see, I first came to PC for the Fan Fiction section. This is where I posted back in the day on my old "Berserk Murkrow" account that's been lost for a long time. I came back because Diamond/Pearl sparked my interest in Pokemon again and I started writing a story. And as you can see it was very popular. *shot* Anywho, I ventured into Role Play after that where I made some friends and finally found my place in S&M, where I was a total noob at first. I quickly picked up on it though and it's expanded since.

Never really had "noob" days as in broke a lot of rules, bad grammar, etc.

Reading my first fan fiction reminds me of where I got the idea for my current hack from. I couldn't remember where that started, but reading that over brings back so many memories. ;-;

And there is mine, I registered in May but I only registered:D I did not make the welcome post until June, Actually I knew lightning before I registered this account;) she allowed me to make this new account, I had another account with like no posts and I did not like the name and I did not feel like waiting for a long time to change it so Lightning gave me a green light to make a new account:D

My super awesome not-so-popular Welcome Thread! (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=113194)

Heck, I remember that old thing. Well, actually, when I first came here, I never noticed the NU/W forum, because I joined this place mainly for Pokémon Trades and battles. Then, once I noticed it, I just had to make a little intro for myself. Too bad no Admin welcomed me... but that's ok. 'Cause I made a ton of new friends, gotten a bunch of Pokémon, and also been known as a pretty good battler (but I'm also trying to get myself a little more known around other sub-forums). But I guess we all can get to fit in, no matter how intimidating things look. Just look at our good friend and NU/W Mod, BeachBoy.

And for Old Times' sake, I'll re-ask something I asked in my Welcome Thread...

Why Doesn't Nintendo Make The Gold/Silver Remakes?!?!?!

My first thread was all about me putting up a front. I didn't want people to believe I was unaware, as they do for most other new members. Unfortunately, I caused some confusion on the actual newnicity (lawl new word!) of my being, and yeah. Weeeeh to another overlooked post! :33;

I didn't really change much from when I originally joined with the exception of my posts went from being massively long like this one (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=3643333&postcount=7) to a medium-low length and my enthusiasm lowered a bit. But here's (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=137290) my introduction thread.
