I guess I'm still trying to figure that out, myself. I don't quite think I've gotten much return out of the reason I signed up in the first place. I was sort of hoping for more comickers and animators here... :(

Well, thanks to the moderation staff for being nice.

It has given me friends all over the world. I'm not gonna sit here and say that it's changed my life and given me confidence to tackle the challenges of real life, because it hasn't. But I think having a network of international friends is the best thing PC or any online forum could ever give a person, so I'm incredibly thankful for that

It allowed me to meet the friend that helped me out quite a lot with a problem of mine. It was talking to him that eventually lead to my changing my ways, for which I am and will continue to be grateful for.

PC also helped me to become less rude and snarky over the internet, as I used to be haha.

I also met a whole mess of friends here, of course.

Even though I joined PC because of being hit with the banhammer on another forum, it was worth it.
I can't think of a good signature.

PC gave me a forum to talk to new people about pokemon hacks for me to try out. It allows me to let off steam after a bad day has happened.

PC gave me a whole new way to connect and communicate with Pokemon fans all over the world. I have made some great friends here, and I treasure each and every one of them and all my moments spent here with them. <3

Thank you, PC!

A number of things.

Firstly, and by far the most important.
I met somebody here that I kinda trusted more then I usually do anyone, and not only did we become good friends, but she started this chain of events that has slowly snowballed into making me make me into a better person.
I've become much more confident and found new hope in myself, where I thought I had lost all.
The funny thing is, I don't think she even realises. X)

Secondly, and of slightly less prominence.
I've become more social, and met a lot of cool people.

Thirdly, still good!
I've gotten into new music genres that I wouldn't have looked at before.

And, as anyone would expect, my love of Pokemon has grown! :D

PC has been great to me!
I've met so many new friends, from all kinds of places. I've gotten a lot of pokemon from the trade corner :D. PC has helped me get involved in discussions. I'm usually quiet, but on PC I'm comfortable enough to give my input on discussions. Also the Dear Anonymous thread has recently helped me vent when I've had no where else to go...
So thanks PC :D

It's given me friends. Social interaction at points in life where I hardly had any. Ambition and goals when I hardly had any. Made me powerhungry for awhile. Source of Internet Drama (always fun??).

And finally, an Internet home where I'm not as shy posting. <3 (Besides Twitter I guess but I like PC a lot more.)

Made a few friends that have extended outside this community, so I'd call that a success.

I made so many friends here, and saw how different online life is to real life.

Not to mention that becoming Supporter sorta meant the forum was giving something back to me, which is very fun.

I have learned how to befriend with everyone again, and learned how to make true friendship, because of joining PC.

Ah PC. PokeCommunity has helped make me what I am today. I joined PC and in time, this palce made me more and more interested in Graphics Design and Web Development, which are basically what I focus on most these days.

I've also met so many great people and made dozens of friends from all over the world. It's definitely been a great experience, one that I have definitely benefited from and I hope to one day be able to help others as much as you have helped me <3

Thanks PC o3o
but my taste in music is your face

It's given me so much ever since coming here in August as Rainbow Arcanine. I feel really grateful towards PC, for giving me much more than a place to chat with others about Pokemon and off-topic related discussions. It's given me some of the best friends that I could ever ask for, it brought out the confidence in me that had always cowered in the shadows until now. I've learnt so much about myself, my wonderful friends here have made me a better person and I felt happier than I ever have before so yeah thanks PC! :D

I've met much nicer people on here compared to the last places I was at. Usually a year in, on the forums I've been on, I've had a dispute with someone, but here, I've had none. At least the mods and higher are nicer too, compared to some of the bigoted you-know-whats on the other forums I've been to.

PC's given me the opportunity to make new friends and get to know people who I'd otherwise never have gotten a chance to associate with. It's also helped me be more confident in myself, as weird as that might seem. I really am thankful for this site, and for that reason, I always have the feeling that I'm in debt to it. =D

For giving me my first forum experience. I adapted to forums early on (10 yrs old I think) so now I don't find them confusing at all thanks to PC.

Also thanks for all the cool members.

PC gave me childhood memories that weren't sad or angering. I couldn't have asked for more.

It's given me something to do in my Pokemon games again in the form of challenges other than a Nuzlocke, also a couple of friends that I talk to once in a blue moon.

Like most people, PC was the place I met some of the best people. I met some of my friends back in '06 and '07 and they're still in my life and I'll always be grateful for that :)
