View Full Version : What reason(s) do you have for still coming to PC?

Tell us all the reasons for you coming back to PC everyday, without which PC wouldn't be all that gravitating to you as an individual anymore.
Also tell us what did you first come to PC for, and how long do you plan to stay.


For me, I'd say I keep coming here because otherwise I'd be doing something boring anyways...
Oh, and of course my friends are a part of my reasons too.

I used to come here because the hacking part seemed to be interesting to me, and also cause I was somewhat of a person who used to like this pokemon thing.
Now, I'm neither that interested in hacking anymore, nor do I like pokemon as much as I used to.

But I still plan on being on PC till the time I don't have anything that I like here anymore.

I come to PC everyday, too check any vm's or pm's, chat with friends, check any requests in my shop and just too hang out.
PC is just such a great place, it offers so much more than Pokemon, so even once you have gotten over it, PC is still awesome.

I intend to stay as long as I can, which is obvious, but if I leave I'd probably come back, and if I leave, it's because I'm like 18 and am finding this place boring, which I doubt will happen :/

Yeah. I guess PC is just a great place to hang out and chat.

The only reason I come here is to see how my bestfriend and to chat with other people

I joined PC initially to download a game. I couldn't be bothered visiting the forum after that, then five months later, it was the summer holidays. I suddenly had nothing to do, so I began to post at this forum to pass time. When school starts on Monday, though, my posting will suddenly become very limited...

I sign in here for the whole weekdays, cause I like posting my opinions and stuff, vming and reading.

I doubt it I'll leave here, even I became married and got a job.

Yeah, PC is the no 1 forum I've entered.

The reason is to see how my bestfriend is fine and doing good. And PC is a great place to hang out with.

Three reasons, really.

1. Check my VM's. Usually with Serene and ~Kiss Kiss~
2. Roleplaying
3. DCC

And that's about it.

I've got some fics I'm in the middle of writing, and I just like hanging out here, I guess. It's also hard to find people who really like Pokemon outside of the internet.

Also to talk to x_xcrissy.

Those two are my main reasons.

I originally joined to trade/battle pokémon. But now that i have no wi fi, other chat became my shelter. I come here to "escape". Sounds sad, i know, but this is place is a good place to vent your stress without offending people (providing you phrase yourself correctly XD) Pluas i have made a lot of freinds here and have "expanded", so to speak. ^^

I have a few goals that I have yet to achieve here, and it's also an intresting place to hang out, and of course I come on for the VM/PMs.

I come here just to make my profile pretty and post in threads I find interesting.
And answer to VMs and stuff.

Nowadays, I come here mostly out of habit and not much else. I have more enemies than I have "friends," not many threads interest me, and not a single one of my so-called "friends" bothers sending me PMs or VMs. Hell, I don't even like Pokémon anymore. Again, it's just habit that brings me here.

Legit, this post captures everything I wanted to say.

As you all my know, I've actually tried leaving this site several times before, I just...failed...

I have three main reasons why I come here.

1. I'm addicted to the community due to the friends I have made here.
2. I enjoy talking to my friends through visitor messages and being able to see what they are doing.
3. It's my online job.

*points to blue user name* Because otherwise, my two forums explode.

And I also have two fanfics in the works that won't get reviews if posted anywhere else (aside from where I've posted them before), and because a few of my friends won't allow me to leave. Pokemon's one of the few things we have in common, and without that, there's nothing to talk about.

But yeah...mostly the power. :D

Leave at your own peril, Asty.

MY friends are really the only thing keeping me coming back to PC. And my activity seems to be decreasing as I find more efficient ways to chat.

Well like any forum, it provides a place to relax (unless certain situations cause un-wanted distractions).
It provides a false since of.. satisfaction? For the limited time that your on the internet.
That's why I joined, and it's why I'll stay =D

1). Friends. I could probably keep in touch with a lot of them via MSN if I were to leave, but it's nice to log on, find out I have three notifications and then getting a database error when I try to find out what's in those visitor messages.

2). Memories. I've been here for more than a year and there are a lot of things that I can recall and just smile at the thought of them. There are also a lot of memories that I slap myself for and ask why I was stupid enough to say or do that.

3). Intelligent discussion and the use of grammar. I haven't found any other forum that promotes proper discussion and has as much grammar nazis as PC.

4). I still haven't figured out what people do with that free six hours of the day when I'm posting on forums to kill time. Maybe if I figure out, I'll be able to kill the addiction.

5). Writing. If I were to display my writing anywhere other than PC, I'm well aware that I won't get as good a review nor as much criticism as I would here.

6). Six is a nice number.

7). PC is just... really cool. Even if I could do other things with my time and I wasn't so addictive, I'd probably still come on here; it's fun.

A good forum is hard to find. A place that feels like your "home online" is hard to find.

I come back because I feel a part of the community. I love all of the Forum features (reputation, blogs, our profiles, our wall, etc..) and because I'm allowed to be a kid on here if I want.

That's another reason why I come here.

You feel like you're actually a member of the community here. From the warm welcomes to the many friends you're bound to make over the years spent here.

You don't end up feeling like just another username drifting in the sea of members.

Reasons like that is why I consider this forum one of my "second homes".

Persona
January 31st, 2009, 06:13 PM
Well, I've actually left the forum a couple of times. I come back every now and then so that I can relate to the people who I normally have chats with, and to gain a sense of belonging. Whenever any of my MSN contacts have conversations about whatever's been going on in PC, I don't really have any input.

It's also been my third year here, and I don't have any real reason to leave for good. Otherwise, there's not much to say as to why I'm still around. XD;

I have actually asked myself that question several times, and the one answer that I keep coming back to is......that I simply have nothing better to do.

You don't end up feeling like just another username drifting in the sea of members.

...Oh...? Is that based on the experiences of multiple users or solely on your own?

I have no idea. I guess it might be nostalgia. I feel no urge to jump into the roleplays like I would've done.(I would've been in at least 6 roleplays by now) I guess I'm just waiting to move on. Give or take a few days, I'll probably make my disappearance for good. Making posts is all fine and dandy, but heck, I don't even talk to anyone. I just post. XD

Yea, gimmie a few days. You won't be seeing Rioku anymore.

The main reason I come here now is to do my moderating duties and to update or answer questions in my hack. I don't really enjoy Pokemon or hacking anymore and I'll probably leave when I finish my hack (not immediately, very gradually). I've also met some really awesome people although I communicate with them more outside of PC than in.

Another reason is the guilt of having spent so much time here. Especially the amount of time I've spent on my hack. If I leave it'll mean I've wasted the better part of a year and a half here. Maybe wasted is a bit harsh, I have had a LOT of fun in my time here.

Aether

Part of why is because I love Pokemon. Simple as that. :P

Also, this is like my second home. It's the very first forum I ever joined, and the first online community I've ever been a part of. I've been absent from here for over a year, now that I'm back, it feels like I've 'come back home' so to speak. But I will say it feels a lot smaller than when I first joined.

Friends and interesting topics. :3

If I didn't have the friends I do have, I would've been gone a long long time ago. Heck, some of them are worth the world to me. I'd take a bullet for them. <3

Actually... I don't know. Why do I come back to PC? I just.. do I guess. I don't have many friends on here.. So I really don't know why I come back. No one would miss me if I left, but I still come back. I like Pokemon, but I'm just not into it like before. I like the environment, I'll leave it at that.

-Friends: Through my short time here I have gained at least 16 friends that I talk to every once in awhile, some more than others. The fact that most of them constantly VM me gives me a reason to log in. I also like how most of them are actually friends, not just members that added me for no apparent reason (Nothing against them, I'm just expecting a VM or two from the ones that do that).

-Interesting threads:This is kind of self-explanatory, but I do love the abundance of interesting threads PC has. Most places have had theirs degraded for the longest time, but I find a large percentage of new threads to be worth replying to (Unless they are in sections I seldom frequent, mind you). I also like the activity most threads (Namely TCTI and TCC have; it's near impossible not to find an excuse to post there every once in awhile) have.

-Pokemon: When I joined It was only because I liked Pokemon at the time (And because of another reason that I'll mention later...). My interest in Pokemon has been waning as of late, but that really doesn't stop me from posting in all those Pokemon threads that pop-up every hour or two.

-Atmosphere: Before joining I was previously active on another forum: SPPF. When I first joined I was more of a lurker than poster and that was because of SPPF.
It wasn't until a virus struck my computer until I realized that SPPF wasn't that great (I have other reasons, but I won't mention them).
So I came back after being absent for a week before and tried to get used to the members, staff, look (As in themes), and everything else before calling it home.
Well, one thing I like about this place is how amicable most members are; it's nice seeing this many nice members who don't bash others for their own amusement, like in SPPF. So basically I like the atmosphere around here, and that won't change anytime soon.

-Force of habit: Every time I open Firefox the first thing I do is click on PC (Whether through my URL or Bookmarks) and read through threads, specifically TCTI and DCC.
I come here each and every day and probably will for the next few years (I hope).


Looking at this I feel as if I put too much thought on it, but those are my reasons.

I come here not because of friends, I come here because the people are nice here and supportive. I know most of the time n00bs get annoying but I've been here for four years, five this June (different account).

PC is my home. I could join other forums but I come right back here. I feel much more comfortable at PC and even a bit attached to PC.

1. My friends; like most other members, my friends mean a lot to me. I wouldn't be half the person I am now without them in my life. Some of them mean the absolute world to me - I would do anything for them.

2. My mod position; I like to see the OT/PT board nice and clean of spam. And it's the only job I have. :D

3. TCTI; it's the place I go when I need to vent or just be generally weird awesome. I've made a lot of friends through it and it's a great place to post in.

Most of the reasons. Plus the Mod Lounge, Went's stalking services, everybody's graphics and force of habit. :>
