Default Yesterday was FFWA's eight year anniversary.

I remember when these used to be a big deal. Well, we haven't had any nostalgia thread in the last five days or so.

so... discuss.

It's shocking to think I've been here for most of that time.

I can't add much to this but I remember the big red spot that was up for a while saying FFWA turned 5.

I don't think I've been on FFWA long enough to feel nostalgic about anything from the past but I'd like to be proven wrong. 3 1/2 years...

I guess I was almost a sophomore in highschool when I joined FFWA. Makes me feel old.


I remember when lots of people actually used FFWA for an FF information source.

I was but a middle schooler suffering through the ravages of puberty. I was not left unscathed.

I was about two months from hitting my 21st birthday when I joined. By that time, I was attending college at Michigan State University. Then I got kicked out shortly thereafter (I had to think about that for a minute because I was trying to figure out some dates in my head). Less than a year after my join date, I got in the Air Force and now here I still am. Coming up on my third year in the Air Force and fourth year on FFWA.

Oh and I had 27 posts per day at one point when I was still a newb around here. Those are long gone now.

God, I joined almost 8 years ago too. I was 14 and in ninth or eighth grade or some shit like that. Now I'm almost 22 and about as different a person as one could possibly be.

I say we post embarrassing quotes we made in the archives loooong ago here. I'll quote a block of text of mine from 1999 or 00, it'll be fun This is from the Priestess of Avalons epic thread entitled 'Being gay or lez right or wrong?'

Now do you have any idea how ridicuous that is and how hard that can be for some people? In my opinion homosexuality isnt disgusting and wrong, anti-homosexuality is...
Boy, that's awful. Not just the typoes, the random capitalization, the poor spelling, unnecesarily repeated phrases... And the fact that I would come out of the closet two years later! How ironic.

Joined in 2000 as the angry little atheist commie-troll El Hefe, and quickly teamed up with Shine/Stream (what was his name?). Got myself banned by Martin in 2001, grew up, and returned in 2003. Haven't really caused much ruckus since then. As I recall, general chat used to be a lot more hostile.

Woah, it was yesterday? I joined in 10th of November 2000, same day as Colin, I was 15 and he was 14. Now I'm 22! And I thought it was something very mega special to be a 'moderator' because I was a total noob to the Internet and everyone took everything so seriously back then. And I wasa huge FF8 nerd. I played it like 5 hours every day and thought it was the best game ever ever.

I've been on here 5 years this October and that feels like too long. I was...14 when I joined.

I joined when I was 14 and at high school. Now I'm 21 and about to graduate from unversity and get a proper job.

Thankfully I don't come here nearly as often as I did at 14.
