Basically the point of this thread is to bring to life some of the memories you have of ancient times in this forum. In other words. Your past memories of PC. Simple as that.

I need to think of some. Be back later.

Simply put, when PE2K was merged amongst PC.

Yeah, those were the bittersweet days.

I remember when I got banned. oO; I was permabanned. And I was a wreck. XDDD I cried for hours & people on MSN had to comfort me. & every time I calmed down I'd resume my sobbing. & then my ban got shortened and then lifted prematurely. And then a month later I got modded, and I nearly threw up from excitement X33 I was modded in Other Chat~ and in June or something I got Mixed Community Groups ^---^ And then in August [it's nearly a year since then!] I got s-modded, and I practically had a heart attack, and then I got AA'd and stuff in November :3~~~ & I remember lotsa stuff really well :D~~~! Lots of old staff and members and... gah, the good old days, but it's still good, I guess 8D~ [/rant]

Haha, oh wow. I have too many to say. I'll just drop the ones that mostly centre around me and then just reply with "OMG I REMEMBER THAT" whenever someone else triggers my memory. XD

I first remember PC as an Ikonboard. xD I lurked a lot and hung out in the webby forum there. Then I forgot about it and later, I was talking to a friend (Cas) who said she had a fanclub on some forum. I asked for the URL and, lo and behold, it was PokeCommunity...but this time in vBulletin form! I would never have rejoined had the slogan been nearly unchanged. (It was "We are thinking of a better slogan" back on the Ikonboard and then the STILL was added. It's the only reason I'm here today. XD)

So...I rejoined. Skip forward a little bit to January, likely. Cas did her infamous "KAMIKAZE" thing. I was off on a day trip that day or something...which is good, since if I'd been there, I might have joined in and have been banned. XD It was either shortly before or after that that PE2K split from PC and activity nearly dwindled to a halt. DX We pulled through, though. And honestly, back then was the greatest. PC was big enough that there was something fresh and new everyday, but small enough that everyone was tightly-knit. Everyone knew everyone else and as a result, people were just closer.

But whatever. Skip forward even more to June. It was a few days before the end of grade eight I suddenly got a PM from Kwesi asking if I wanted to mod. I accepted, of course, and we talked on AIM and we decided I should mod in Mixed Voting Polls and Other Anime. Neither forum is called the same thing anymore. XD Shortly after I was modded, I had to go on summer vacation and midway through it, when I got on a dialup connection to check a few quick things, I found out I'd been promoted to S-Mod. I hadn't even DONE anything. So that was cool. XD

Um...not much else happened for a looong time after that. o_O; There was the quick rise of Abby and the long time in which she more or less did everything at PC. Kinda miss those times since I never get to speak to her anymore. DX There was the restart, in which I somehow joined late and thus got the member ID "31" instead of a one-digit or something. XD; (And I remember the turmoil around then since the admins did it abruptly and I had to wait quite a while to get my s-mod powers/spot back.)

I remember finally getting promoted to Praetor after about 2 years of being on staff. xD That was a happy day. But not as happy as when I got to leave that fugly colour behind (sorry, but I hated that yellow XD) and move on to the spiffy red I have now. And that's honestly it, as far as interesting memories for me go. There are the arrivals and departures of friends and otherwise, but that's pretty much it for me. .__.;

Agreed, the weird colour you guys had for Praetor than was just... icky, it made me think of vomit. X3;;;

Cherrim
August 11th, 2006, 12:43 AM
xD Yeah, I couldn't stand it. My favourite Praetor colour was that green we had. Or maybe when Abby adopted my favourite colour of purple as her own~ I never got a nice colour though. Just the yellow. XD That's why I was so glad to be promoted out of it~~

Kylie-chan
August 11th, 2006, 12:44 AM
XD I love the red you guys have now. But mainly I wish I could have had Abby's pink. ): I begged Andy for it nonstop and he said no. XD

I remember a few things in my year spent here at PC. One of the things was the singing contest. I never understood that. I remember when Dakota got banned, and there were so many "Unban Dakota" demands. I remember back to when Other Voting Poll was crammed with random polls and junk. I also can think back to Jake's little Halloween game.

So many memories, and I can't wait to make more.

The one memory that I'll always remember, is that
I was a ALTIME spam guy, and almost got banned.
I was saved of that when I joined at neopets for a couple of months
and returned.
Then I was "Blaze121"
After that, I changed my name to ~Enu~,
never to return to the spam side again.
Some story...

^ I remember that. ;p

I remember being a newbie/n00b/whatever when I first joined. I also remember making a thread asking about "I like it" reviews (click -- hey, it was made a rule! 8D (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=19464) ...and I just noticed I so typoed that thread title. Can't believe it. XD). I also posted in the first Staff Feedback thread asking for a mod with decent review skills, if they were to get a new one in HotS. Argh, so embarassing to look at. XD;;
And every time I look at my welcome thread, I kind of shudder inside. But yet, Dakota's post makes me giggle. Must be the big "BOO Ya!" XD

I remember Kaga before he left (the first time)... kind of. XD I think it was mainly his sig. I remember seeing Toothache the first day I came, before he was modded. He was yelling at a random poll. XD I don't know why it stuck out in my mind, but it did.

I remember when the first elections came around... or was it second? Well, I was around for both... XD I signed up for one of them, can't remember. I thought it'd be fun. I got a reply from JK, who had been banned shortly after he sent me the PM. I was kinda weired out by that. XD

I'll post more later, I guess.

...Ah, memories. XD

OMIGOSH! YEAH! Good times Amelia~

DS Club is a grand memory for me. I loved that thing. Also great was my distasteful reaction to Quick Reply. It changed PC too much IMO, so I left for like two months because I didn't fully understand how useful it was. Heh.

I remember the first time I came here which was 2 years ago. o_o I remember when I joined the Flannery Club as well as the Ash Club and making friends such as Toto, darkgamerGS, and so forth. Though I don't know if they're still here. It has been a while since my last post. And by "while", I meant a full year or two.

Sammi
August 15th, 2006, 04:51 AM
Wow, a year? That's a long time. o.o; Welcome back. :3

Ah, the Ash club. For the first few months, that's the only place I posted, maybe once a week... hehe. XD;; It was fun. ^^; It was my first post too, I believe. XD
Toto's still around, but her new name is Sen. She's not into Ash anymore though.
DarkgamerGS hasn't been here in ages... I remember him. He was cool. 8D I made him a sprite once. XD;

I remember I had a sprite thread... it wasn't the most popular (I remember seeing Eliana's and going O_O XD), but it was somewhat big XD;; I was lazy on two requests, I kinda regret that. Laziness is not cool... and yet I still am. D:

Bah, I remember way too much. XD

Wow, I can think of several things to talk about... XD It was fun back in the old days when there weren't so many members, and it was easy to get to know people. I miss the way it was after I first joined, and Kairi/Abby would always seem to be on the site helping out with something. She was one of my favorite friends, but I've never really talked to her since she left.

Anyway, dare I mention the infamous original "Do you have a crush on anyone at PC?" thread. It was like the only spam-filled thread that most people seemed to like. XD I was involved in many crazy RPs with my friends Sayuri no Hoshi and 100marios... It was so hilarious, lol.

I'm also randomly remembering the annual proms, and all of those other events that Dizzy would always come up with. XD Those were kind of silly, but fun.

And of course, I remember being one of the people selected to be a Moderator after I took one of those old Mod tests/surveys about 4 months after I joined. O_o; I guess that now it's good that they don't pick staff members like that... But then I ended up becoming a Super Moderator, so I was happy~! I just had to resign after so many things came up in real life.

Whoa, Toto/Sen's not into Ash anymore. O_O I never thought I'd see this day. DarkgamerGS is gone as well. Hmm, alot has changed since the last time I've been here. I also remember posting this fic about the Elite Four, but that's long dead already. x_x

You got banned, Kylie Chan? What for? XD

I remember when John and I got banned for sending hateful PMs. I remember thinking; "If I avoid this ban by making a new account, I'll be perbanned." So I just logged out and waited. XD Uh... I remember there were some real "characters" on this Forum at some points. (Hack wannabes, n00bs, etc..) Ah, sweet, sweet memories.

Hmmm...I remember a lot of things! ^_^

The default layout here was one of Orange*Berry's...can't remember which one but I think it was red and white. There used to be lots of layouts on special days of the year! I made her a banner once with an Azurill on - that was one of my first real requests at PC.

I remember when Ashley was called snowangel, and the art forum being incredibly active as it was all merged into one back then!

I remember the Valentine's Day Contest 2004, where I won with a picture of two Charizard in love, and that made my day! ^_^ I also somehow got the title of first PC Vice President, and was modded during the election process (luckily that didn't affect the result!) XD

I remember the infamous T-Dome...never posted in there though...

I remember Cas's "KAMIKAZE" leaving spree which got many other people involved too, though some of them did return o_0

If I can think of more I will add them!

Memories... oh I have a few of them...

I remember joining PC via google search and then getting banned by my parents because I was talking to people I didn't know.

I remember coming back with this account and starting anew.

I remember meeting my pair/husband right here on PC. Now, our relationship has broken the cyberspace barriers and we are inseperable.

I remember making some of the best friends I'll ever have here.

I remember being part of one of the ONLY rps to ever finish here on PC.

I remember the T-dome, too... Only posted a few times. It was created just before my parental-ban...

So many good memories. Yay! :D

I have quite a few memories from PC, but I'll start with the one thgat is most important to me. Meeting the love of my life.

You see, it was May of 2004 back when I joined. I was fifteen, almost sixteen and a sophomore in high school. I was looking for some fun RPing, as the RPs on my former forum, NationStates had been sucking. PC looked like a likely prospect. In the second RP I joined, I met a member there by the name of Mew13. We got along fairly well, and I found myself inexplicably attracted to her, sight unseen. I asked to pair, and we did. Unfortunately, outside of RPs, we didn't talk much. Due to this, and to issues with my own sexuality, we unpaired. Over the next seven months or so, things for both of us went south. Life felt horrible. I finally found her again on MSN and we started talking. And fell in love, genuine love. We've been together ever since, almost a year and a half now and have seen each other four times in that period of time, most recently for two weeks straight. She's helped me with so much, and I've grown tremendously as a person with her.

I remember browsing through google looking for some sprites and seemed to fall into this place. I was 15 and didn't knew nothing about internet forums so after some couple of months I found myself banned for a week. I had some friends that made banners about bringing me back and I was seeing all of that while I was offline. I managed to have a spare username so I got myself online but it didn't take long until one of the Super Mods saw my IP and gave me a warning. 7 days passed and found myself online with mods watching my every post.

I remember how my little sprite thread became quite popular, I got some criticism that my newbie statusphere couldn't handle and replied to the critics in a bad way. This thread taught me how to challenge myself and how to treat others in a well manner way.

I remember how the staff came and left and got some new recruits like Signomi, Aragornbird, and others I may have not met.

I remember how Steve used the same christmas picture for the 'Merry Christmas' thread. I wonder if he'll change it this year?

I remember how a member turned from being my enemy into being my sister.

I remember how I wanted to enter on the Valentine's day contest but I somehow deleted my sprite so I had to pass it and not compete.

I remember how I missed the April fool's joke that Todoroki made.

I remember talking to the Ash/Satoshi fanatic for the first time, Peach is the true Satoshi fan because she likes to talk about him very much.

I remember how the 'sweety' Jeremy got stalked by many people because the way he was. Jeremy you are one of the sweetest mods I've ever met~

There's a bunch of more things that have happened this year, but these are the most important things.

There were so few of us that we all got to know each other really well.
Wait, Kairi's gone O.O ?!
Oh yeah the crush thread. It was great for a laugh (no offense to anyone who posted there ^^; ) XD
And remember how the first time the Pari up thread was created, everyone just wanted to be in a pair just for the heck of it (some people are still doing that :DD )
Dizzy's crazy ideas! :D
I also remember all the useless threads we'd have. Now everything's categorized and there's specific threads for stuff (there'd be millions of threads on the same topic! X00 )
I had so much time for PC back then. I miss those days soo much!!! DDDD;
