When you first joined PokéCommunity, which member(s) did you look up to? What was special that made you look up to them? Did you learn anything from them?

    To be honest, none. I treat everyone as equal, even she/he has leadership. As a result, I don't find any special qualities to them.

    Oh wow, how ironic.

    I guess the person I looked up to most, if anyone, was sammi-san. She was the first moderator I conversed with, and back then I was kinda googly eyed about the blue and bold. So I respected her, and I'll admit, feared her a tiny bit. Now look at the two of us. <3

    Aside from her, no one really. I was an idiot back then who didn't understand anything.

    Edit: I'm going to modify the thread title a little bit, so people don't confuse it with droomph's thread of role models in a more general sense.

      I never really admired anyone in the sense of looking up to them as like, above me, but I recall Hikari being really nice to me when I first joined and that was pretty pleasant :p

        I do not think I remember looking up to someone when I first joined PC.

          I admired pretty much anyone who made a hack I liked, actually.

            TwilightBlade. Of course, back then she was TwilightBlade.

            I was interesting in trading and she was a mod and was really awesome and welcoming and stuff n_n

              I'd have to say BobAndBill for the Pokemon Colosseum fanfic he made which left me in stitches for days on end back when I was new on here.

              None at first since I didn't know anyone, but after a while Hikari10! and about 3 others I can't remember.

                I would probably say Jeremy. He was always really helpful and sweet and I guess I just looked up to him and really liked him because he was just so approachable and welcoming/ caring :3

                This was a hard one since I was pretty unpopular back then but I have to admit that in the end it would have to be the one and only Forever, because she made me into a 5th Generation enthusiast (and thus contributing to her section regularly), she hosted the one part of PCX that made me a Supporter and I wouldn't have joined the PC Battle Server if it wasn't for her.

                  Ughhh I don't really remember let me see... :3

                  I think it was Hackmew who created various of tools in rom hacking and I also admired his research.

                  But as for Non-rom hacker people that I looked up to I'd say Hikari since I always see her everywhere in the forums. :3

                  I can't really remember why, but I looked up to Arcanine, Signomi, and Scizz before I met them, and Morkula, Ausaudriel, and Lightning after I met them.

                  Upon first joining, I admired Astinus, JXValentine, and bobandbill the most. Leaving Marcin in that format cause it was before he was even a mod. ;) But yeah, can you tell I came here for fan fics originally? lol

                  I remember looking up to Lightning a lot when I first joined. She was so nice and knowledgeable.

                  When I first joined, I'd have to say Hikari10 mainly cause she was so nice to me and seemed so friendly. Plus she was my first friend on PC, which is sort of special. Other than that, I'd say I admired a good amount of mods/smods, only cause their names were in bold and in a different color. Particularly, AlexOzzyCake and Meganium90 (back when they were mods...). And Patchisou Yatohru to an extent cause I thought he was so laid back and humble.

                  I joined four days ago and I haven't really found anybody that I "look up to" or idolise. Those who are closest to the term "look up to" would probably be Forever (because I know them from some place else) or the two supermods I've found are also engrossed in Borderlands... other than that, no; I don't really "look up to" anyone at PokeCommunity.

                  When I first joined, I personally looked after Gym Leader Rozu and Hikari10. They both are friendly, and I'm starting to learn the new friendship and aim to be the better me thanks to them.

                  I'm happy to see how many people love Hikari10. :] She really is amazing at welcoming new members and being helpful and friendly.

                  To answer the question, I remember always wanting to be like Lightning. 8) It was probably at least a year before I started trying to develop my own style instead of just trying to imitate Erica. :P

                  I would say Patchisou Yatohru, Morkula, Aerilyn, Hiidoran and Went.

                  Look at all those staff and ex-staff members.

                  I can't even remember anyone I looked up to when I first joined haha. I think I had a blatant disregard for everything and everyone. XD Now though, I look up to quite a few people: AlexOzzyCake, bobandbill, Hiroshi Sotomura, ~Kawaii~, Kura also especially and plenty more that don't seem to want to pop up!

                  I joined in 2008, but didn't stop lurking until 2012 haha. But I'm going to say TwilightBlade, twistedpuppy, and Mac. Since they were the trade mods (and one ex trade mod) I really looked up to them. Of course, not as much anymore since I can stand on my own two feet for the most part, but I still go to them for help and advice.

                  Apart from staff, I also looked up to iloveeevee and Wiilio for taking extra time to teach me how to RNG.

                  I consider myself to have 3 "stages" at PC

                  I'd have to say that many of the people I really respected when I first joined PC are long gone now. Names like Forest_Grovyle2, Chairman Kaga4, Arcanine1, sammi-san3, Rukario and a few more who slip from memory.

                  Then as I move forward into my second stage at PC, people like Signomi2 and Forever arrive, both of whom I consider to be respectable members.

                  Finally my third stage, which is the current stage, includes some of the more current staff. These are members I remember growing up SO FAST from n00b to mod and on up. Folks like Went, Razor Leaf, Derozio, Bloodex and Livewire are all members I respect quite well today~

                  1 - Former Administrator
                  2 - Former Moderator
                  3 - Former Super Moderator
                  4 - Former Staff, unknown rank or time period. (Possibly Classic PC?)
