View Full Version : Do You Think You Will Be On PC 3 Years from now?

July 22nd, 2009, 4:41 AM
I was just thinking today.. How long will i actually be posting on PC. I don't see the end nor do i see myself being here forever!
So i pose my question.

Do You Think You Will Be On PC 3 Years from now?

July 22nd, 2009, 4:44 AM
Yes. I'm to obsessed with Pokemon not to be. And the 3 years after that, and then 3 more so I can celebrate my 10th year at PC. Then I can die happy.

July 22nd, 2009, 4:54 AM
I don't really know if I could stay here for more than 3 years. It depends on me loving Pokemon. But I cannot stay here for a long time, I probably I might forgot about this site because of new hobbies. I'll cherish this moment everytime I'll logged in here.XDXDXD

July 22nd, 2009, 4:58 AM
My passion for Pokemon died a long time ago, but I come here for the friends, so yes. I'm never going to abandon them.

With any luck I will actually have a life by then and I shall never return to this forum.

Most likely not.
By then I will have finished University and will be working so, I do not think so...

July 22nd, 2009, 6:23 AM
Yes if the infractions don't catch up and I don't get 25 red cards,

July 22nd, 2009, 6:25 AM
yes i shall still be on probably but then again all the new members now would be the old members which be like a new generation in a way

July 22nd, 2009, 6:27 AM
I was here three years ago, hell, I was here six years ago, so why not?

July 22nd, 2009, 6:37 AM
I'll be here in the next two years, but I'll be a lot less active because of school. Then when I go to University, I might leave but I'm not sure if I will.

July 22nd, 2009, 6:45 AM
...if PC is still around, I will be here.

A similar question was posed in a thread in 2003 and my answer was the same. XD;

July 22nd, 2009, 6:57 AM
I've been here for four years, so it would be a bit hard to abandon PC without regretting it. ^^"

Even if my Pokemon addiction is dead, I still come here for my friends on PC. However, if they end up leaving, I would probably end up doing the same.

July 22nd, 2009, 7:10 AM
Wherever I've made a home on the internet, even if I leave (and no matter how many times I do so), I always come back. Nostalgia is a powerful force, so whether it's for Pokemon or for PC itself, I have no reason to permanently leave. :3

So yes, I should still be around 3 years from now, unless that's during a time I'm on hiatus.

July 22nd, 2009, 7:35 AM
Hmmm, I'm not sure anything could happen in 3 years.. I figure once I start college I won't nearly be on as much which is roughly 3 years.

Depends what life brings in the next three years. I doubt it though. :[

July 22nd, 2009, 7:57 AM
Ahh, I can see the future now. Just about all of us playing with our 5th gen Pokemon, everyone searching for the rare, one of a kind Magikarp :) So yes, I see my self on PC in 3 years.

July 22nd, 2009, 8:05 AM
The longest I've ever lasted on one forum is 10 months.. & that's this one.. However I wasn't active till May. The longest I've been active on a forum consistantly is around 8 months but I left there because of inconveniences. I'm not sure if I'd last 3 more years here.. I'd be thrilled if I did but it I'm not too sure =/

July 22nd, 2009, 8:50 AM
I'm not sure, I tend to have this habit of leaving forums after I get tired of them. Although I don't think I'll ever be tired of PC xD

July 22nd, 2009, 8:55 AM
Nah... ill probaly lose interest of pokemon at some point

July 22nd, 2009, 8:58 AM
I'll probably still be here, if not as an active member, it would be as a registered lurker.

July 22nd, 2009, 8:58 AM
Yes, I should still remember about PC after 3 years, and I'd be lurking around once in awhile, but most likely inactive.

I should say that I'd only see an end to PC if I saw an end to Pokemon, but even then, I still think PC will be around after Pokemon ends.

There is a possibility for me leaving PC, if certain events IRL happen.

July 22nd, 2009, 9:25 AM
Hopefully not, I'd question my sanity if I would. But chances are I probably would. :(

July 22nd, 2009, 9:27 AM
I'd like to believe that in 3 years I would have some how magically gotten a better social life outside of the internet and wouldn't even have time to get on because I would be too busy partying IRL...unforetunately I know that won't happen so I'm pretty sure Iw ill be on here until I die:D

It all depends on what happens in life, but I hope so.

1100th post. ^-^

July 22nd, 2009, 11:43 AM
No, I won't be. 2 and a half years from now I'll be banned for getting drunk and spamming up the forum. By that time I will have no friends on the Staff (seeing how I pissed them all off), and thus no one to side with me to get me unbanned.

If you had told me 6 and a half years ago that I'd be on a forum for a year I would have said "What's a forum?" (really, I would have said that). I can't see the future, but if I'm around then chances are I'll still be on PC. I mean I've been here for 6 and half years, I've seen PC change so much. Maybe I'll be able to hit my 10 year mark (3 years from now I will have been a member for 9 and a half years). XD

July 22nd, 2009, 12:27 PM
I dunno. o: I'll probably eventually move on, like I do from most things~

Gerri Shin
July 22nd, 2009, 12:30 PM
There's probably a 50/50 chance I'll still be here.

July 22nd, 2009, 12:32 PM
No. I should honestly say something to back that, but in reality, I can't without offending everyone here.


July 22nd, 2009, 1:06 PM
Maybe, can't really be sure about it.

July 22nd, 2009, 1:13 PM
Probably, if I have nothing to do.
I already lost most interest in Pokemon so that would not be a factor anymore... just the overall memberbase.

July 22nd, 2009, 1:17 PM
It's difficult to know, but I think I will. At that time I'll be 16, and many seem to be that age here, so I'm sure I'll last. ^^

World King
July 22nd, 2009, 1:39 PM
I'll try everything possible to remain in PC for as long as it lasts; so HS people, you'd better make this place last a looooong time...

July 22nd, 2009, 1:42 PM
Sure, I'll still check this place out.

July 22nd, 2009, 2:08 PM
I believe so. I will be in college still and I always use PC to procrastinate.

July 22nd, 2009, 2:22 PM
I was here three years ago and I'll still be here three years from now.

Can't really speak of how active I'll be at that time, but I'll still be around. :3

July 22nd, 2009, 3:04 PM
I'm not sure. Maybe.
Depending if I gain a life in the next three years.
Meh. It'll probably be like, a side thing. I won't be as active, I'm sure.

Don't get me wrong, I love PC, I just don't think I always will.

Sweet Candace
July 22nd, 2009, 3:32 PM
It depends. I might, I might not. It all depends on college and other important things.

July 22nd, 2009, 4:08 PM
Like most people are saying, it all depends on how busy I am. So it's a maybe. The other forum I am on is being shut down soon anyway, so I figure I need to stay active on at least one forum...

July 22nd, 2009, 5:10 PM
Not sure. I been on PC for a good long time and I wasn't sure if I will be on PC for this long. I want to say no since it seems like I had no problem being inactive for a few months but then again I came back and back to semi-activeness.

I say that as long that I stay in uni then I will be on PC till then. I may be a bit inactive at some points but I will still come to PC. After that, can't say.

July 22nd, 2009, 5:42 PM
I'll be at my last year of college ... how I dread that year. Maybe but not as often. Though I can't say anything. The future shall tell me. But I'll certainly not stop loving Pokemon

July 22nd, 2009, 7:35 PM
I'm sure I'll still be here, even if not in a staff capacity. I have too many friendships and memories here to just drop them, even though sometimes I get mad and fly off and think that I should just drop everything and leave. It'll never happen though. XD

au bon
July 22nd, 2009, 7:41 PM
From time to time, I find it difficult to see myself here a month from now, let alone in three years. But knowing me, that's just a phrase. I've discussed possibly leaving PC for good with a few of my friends and they all made it clear that they'd see to it that if I do so, they'd find me and possibly see to it that I regret the decision. XD

Unless anything happens with my position here at PC, I don't see my leaving a possibility, though. Since that's one of the prime factors I'm here, among the fact that the majority of the friendships I made online were with members here. Leaving them on here would be hard to see, as much as I say that there would be the times of me talking to them on MSN remaining.

But I do know that by then I'd have a job and be less active than I am now.

July 22nd, 2009, 8:11 PM
What's mainly holding me here is my staff position.. so if I lost that, I can't say that I would be as active, but I'd still be around. Even now I'm not one of those horribly active people who post 50 times a day.. xD; but I love this place, for the community as a whole, and for the fact that it was basically my first forum that I stuck with for more then two weeks. :x Regardless of how my life has changed, I've stuck with PC for the past four years, so what's another three? If it's around, then I'll be here. Unless, you know, I get IP banned for some reason before then.. >>; haha.

I'll also mention, that I have a lot of people here that enjoy talking with.. so I'll always check in for them, even if I have periods of inactivity in actually posting around. 8D;

July 22nd, 2009, 9:06 PM
Do I think I'll be on PC three years from now? I have no idea. Do I hope I'll be on PC three years from now? Yeah, as long as I have my friends. Life is weird. It really is like the cliche metaphor of a rollercoaster ride. Sometimes the coaster twists and you suddenly find yourself in a situation you had never imagined. Maybe something will happen that will keep me from the internet. Maybe all of my friends would leave and I wouldn't have a good time here anymore. Frankly, there are so many things that can make me leave or make me stay.

But I'm not planning on leaving anytime soon. :]

July 22nd, 2009, 9:50 PM
Yes. :3

PC got me through highschool, PC is getting me through college.

As carebears-y as it sounds, PC is the one place I feel welcomed and the one place where people seek me out. The closest friends I've ever made I met here. :3 and I have two mamas so I can't leave unless they do and they don't intend on leaving anytime soon. again, I know how lame this probably sounds but for me, it's so nice to be able to share my feelings and not worry about being physically mauled or anything. xD; and they luff me. AND YEAH. THIS IS KINDA AWKWARD. XD; Eh. Yeah. That's about it. I've left for hiatuses before but when I came back last August and I was nearly attacked by Alter Ego with overflowing concern and friendship hugs.... ;; It made me cry. Cuz I don't get that in the real world.

I'm obesessed with Pokemon so most likely I'll still be on here. Even though i'll be in my Sophmore year of college, I'll find time to come on here like I do any other time


July 28th, 2009, 9:13 AM
It's definitely a possibility...Though I can't imagine myself being as active as I am now, I'll most likely check in every once in a while. PC has been such a big part of my life, I could never simply leave and never return =(

July 28th, 2009, 9:54 AM
Eh ... I'll probably leave in two years, rediscover this account in the middle of summer, and be like, what the heck, let's post like crazy.

... Yeah, I'll be here. XD

July 28th, 2009, 10:44 AM
If, ROM hacking stays in it's current state, no. I mean a lot of people are saying they are staying for friends. I bet you, three quarters of them they speak to on msn. Msn, I'll go on it if I'm here or not. So, even if I leave I'll sort of still be here. If ROM hacking rises from it's ashes, I'll be happy to stay.

July 28th, 2009, 10:57 AM
maybe. maybe not.
honestly i dont know cause i've never really thought about it

but sure why not? yeah i'll still be on in 3 years

July 28th, 2009, 2:08 PM
This is an interesting question because I have two different answers that go from one side of the pitch to the other, so to say.

For what's nearly made it to the last two years, PC's been very, very important to me. It's not that... my only friends in the world are on here or that I have any real connection to it, it's just that some of the people I've met on here are so much cooler than any of my friends in real life. In real life... my friends are all in high school and we're all insecure vultures waiting to attack anyone who shows any signs of weakness. Whilst here... no one gives a damn. If you're a friend - you're a friend. That's it. We're only here to socialise, mostly. And... I don't know. It's pretty hard to write this without making no sense. There have been sometimes in the last year and three quarters where I've pretty much lost all faith in what I'm doing; my friends; who I am as a person. And the friends I've made on PC... well... some of them have been there and they've helped me through that. And the drama and the laughs and the adventure and the tears and the anger and every other trivial, pointless, brilliant event that's gone on here... whether it's a thread that's only worth existing for the lulz or a visitor message that'll go unanswered for the rest of time... I wouldn't give any of it up for the world.

But there are times when I think: what am I doing here? None of this is real. I can't look at you all in the eyes; I can't hug you; I can't physically comfort you if you cry. I can't even give you a flipping high-five. And there are a select group of people here who make the occassional post and you just think, 'why? Why would you put someone down like that? Are these really the people I want to hang out with?' And there's the reputation abuse, and the fact that PC is awesome at blowing things outta proportion... and the backstabbing cliques. And I just ask myself: is this worth it?

So far it is... tomorrow, who knows?

July 28th, 2009, 2:13 PM
I don't know. I have an unusually small attention span, so. . And I love to forum-hop.

July 28th, 2009, 2:25 PM
Thinking about it, I'm not sure, I've only been here nearly 3 months now, so maybe you'd get a better answer in a few more months.

But realistically, I never actually think that far ahead in anything really. 3 years would make me aged between 19/20 depending on if it's any month in particular, before October being 19 and after being 20 *Shudder*

The other Pokemon forum I've been on (But hardly ever go on now thanks to this site) I've been a member there for 4 years.

I don't know really, I think it just depends on if I still like this sort of thing by then, or what situation I'll be in by that point. Who knows, maybe the world really WILL end in 2012 XD

Time will tell...

July 28th, 2009, 2:40 PM
I will probably if I turn out to be a valued member lol.
