What was it like at the community when you joined? Did you get excited? Was it a great place for you?

In this thread, tell us your community history, whether brief, one part of, or anything else.

I'm sure everyone had their best times here. I've been here long, about 1 year and 3 months. It's all more of a good time for me and many others who are here.

I can't remember how I even came here, but it was one of the first forums I joined. I could guess it was PPN, but it was a long time ago: 1 year and 3 months. I joined the community on November 29, 2002. When I first started at the community, the first forum that caught my interests when I came here was the Pokmon Game Boy Games forum. I did some good things such as help some people around with emulators, and it felt good to be here. But the fact was, it was as if I was shackled to this forum, which I did like coming to the Game Boy Games forum. There was lots of active discussion, and I loved it all! But I never seemed to move anywhere else.

I feel I was like some of the new members coming today. Quite buggy, and quite annoying at times. I got mad at a person moderating at the time, theRealOne. Mainly because of the fact he was closing Johto and Kanto threads. Of course, nowadays I am aware about flame threads. I considered myself SPAMming, and when I look back, things were quite bad for me at times. Of course, I did resolve the problem I rose with tRO. Things worked out later.

Throughout December, I got into fanfictions. The thing that mainly fascinated me were the great and sometimes funny (and considerably rude) fanfictions. Yes, they were allowed at the time. But then chain stories got into my head, and then I created one of my own. I met many people, and the longstanding member that I met who is still around now, is my friend Shadow. Of course, there were many friends who I met within the year, too. Shadow was a very active chain fanfictionist. Often we'd post a bit or two, and it still happens now. Shadow is currently the moderator of Pokmon Fan Fiction, as most members should know.


That's just a bit of my history, and I'll be posting more!

It was May 1st, 2003. I was a member at only one Pokemon message board at the time called the Turquise Tavern, that I had found after leaving my first board serebii.net when it closed during fall-winter time. I then searched through AOL search to look at other Pokemon boards. The first one I saw was PokeCommunity. I came here and saw how cool the board looked. The top of the page had the Jirachi banner with some other pics in the background like a red Gyarados at the time. I then noticed 2 members that I knew from the Turquoise Tavern; Iveechan and StellarWind. I then joined and loved this place ever since. Hopefully I'll be here to the end.

I joined a long time ago as the name of "Hazuki-san". I met lots of nice people especially Junichi and I have been best friends with him ever since. Now I am engaged to him . I also played in the Role play games with people like Zeke31 and Ash. Last April, I got into drawing art. I changed a lot ever since. Thats all I remember for now.

whew! where do i get started? XD

it was July 3rd, 2003 and i was having some trouble with my Sapphire (couldnt get to Pacifilog town ; so i went on the net and typed something like (Pokemon Sapphire Walkthrough) and down the row i went until i saw "PokeCommunity" i thought what the heck so i went there (here? im confusing myself XD) so i saw some really helpful things, but me being the dummy at the internet and computers i thought there was a fee if you joined ;;;;;;;;;;; so i asked my mom if i could join and i did, i was Sapphire Rayquaza, not that great a member i only had like 100-200 posts when PC restarted, i was pretty shy i didnt feel like i belonged for a while i thought it was too crouded, thats when i got a PM from Soph it was to go to AFF so i went there and spent alot of time there and i met Ally there! (YAY! ) and when i heard PC restarted i thought it was a chance to start fresh so i rejoined, i think AFF really helped me get out the comedian inside, and i met Andy, Ally, Starlight, and Soph! so thats about my PC history, but i remeber i loved Roleplaying and helping people with TV questions so i guess im really good at those types of things! and then i finally got Modded, the happiest day of my PC life!

I honestly can't remember how I found this place... But I do remember that I kept coming back to look at posts as a guest, and finally on September 20th, 2003 I joined. ; And I'm really glad I did. I was a bit nervous when I first started posting, but I met a lot of friends after a few days. I think Kairi was the first one because I kept haunting her with so many PMs with dumb questions, etc. XD Finally, I got the hang of things. So now, after a few months of joining, I became a moderator, along with some of my very best friends. =D And I've met a lot of new ones too.

you could say I was excited, sorta. I already kind of knew everybody here, so I didn't really need a new member intro. It was nice though, having a small amount of members so you knew everybody...shizzah

STOP LOOKING AT MY POST FOOL!!!

I was just browsing and posting at my older times, and I mostly spent my time at fanfiction. I found myself confortable, and later met 3 of the admins at PC at the time: Steve (our hoster!), Kwesi (we all know who he is) and Nill (Known as Kento - a really friendly administrator).

It was November sometime 2003 (not that long ago) and I had been aware of this forums existance almost as long as I was aware of Serebiis existence, I found it in Arcanines sig at SPPf, and I kept checking every day due to my curiosity of what this forum would be like, I really didnt start off as a bad newbie here, because I had already figured out how to follow the rule the first month I was a member at SPPf. I didn't really get into posting until this month, because I used to have no friends here: But now I do, well atleast I consider them friend. Orange*Berry, Kairi, Cloudskipper, and Arcanine (and maybe Haruka someday) :p And since I have friends here I have had more fun posting here at this time then any other forum, I am hooked here and now come on more then once a day. =)

Some of the people in that older time I could also consider bad people. But some here are very good and loyal people!

Oh, come on, Cosmos. You had a perfectly good past here at PC. You were one of our most active members. Why you want to deny such a thing is beyond me.

I try not to remember some of my past because most of it was horrible to me. Like when Cas *female* was here and she was just a bad memory to me. She always flamed me and my friends.

I can't describe what I felt during my first days of PC. Too long ago. I do that PC looked like a beautiful place to me however, and I knew I n00bish because that's what I was. I became totally interested into PC, and almost everything that happened to it affected me. It was like I had never learned so fast in my life before, I truely felt a general God-given golden time in the days of June 2003. I remember starting to post more and more each day until I was marking about 150 posts/day and flew avatars of pokemon girl(s) which was daily updated/changed. Friends? I browsed around and Haruka-chan (Kairi) caught my attention early, but I didn't talk to her until like a month later. Then, because I hanged around Other Chat and excercised large-scale posting activities there, I met tmbjr, Arcanine, Diana (Haruka), and a whole range of people.

Sometimes bad things happen. Sometimes they aren't avoidable.You just have the accept the past. I know they were hectic times around PC, so I tend not to bring them up much. Still, you can't deny that they happened.

Oh, yes, I was very fascinated by PC's giantic FanArt Forum when I joined. To me it was the best thing about PC.

It used to be one of PC's attractions - it still is, but now people have become widespread over... Pokmon Gaming Forums around the community... and attention has apparently spread from forum to forum. It's the same community - but activity needs to be a lot more promoted, especially from the admins, who play as a role model.

My favorite admin: Steve.

Well I joined around December and I found this
forum while I was looking for a rom. I found this forum
in November, and was just looking around until I felt
that i just had to join. Then my brother tried to ruin my life,
by spamming. ( What happened in reality, was much worse)
(sorry for bringing up the subject)
After a month after I joined, I suddenly wanted to post more often.
(Which I am doing) And I started getting into hacks, and RM2K

I joined last year as "Wendeli". I have met lots of good friends in the RPG including Cosmo [Mystic Bayleef then]. I was judging of one of her battles. Thats how we met and we became friends. I always remember her as Hazukis lover. I met a lot of other cool people here. [Ash, 22sa, Cas, 100marios, others]

Username: ((hmm...no clue...oh I guess I'll put my old user name...)) *types in "dark tyranitar"

Password: ********

...hmmm what to do next?

ANyways, I started at PC by the name dark tyranitar and I was the original DT. I was an infamous spammer... I think XD... and I love posting fanfics. A few months later, I posted a thread called "Who's your favorite manga character?" A few people answered namely Bashamo_master and RaichuRocks... I chatted with them for a while and we created a club called "The Pokemon Special Club". We had members and we met Kage and a lot more. We met Purin after PC 2 was created. We then requested Steve to create a manga forum. Afterwards, we created a website dedicated to Pokemon Special. 2 months later, Serebii.net popped out a manga section out of the blue. Although Purin rested her case, Omega, Me and Kenta are still angry after our pride was suddenly swooped by a powerhouse that we once trusted... ((Why did he even make a manga section 2 months AFTER we made the site and in the midst of the Ruby/Sapphire chapters. Why not when Viz stopped it? Why not when the G/S/C were released in Japan? Why did he made it after our site was made?))
