Eh, HTML used to be simpler. Not all this CSS and scripting required for every site.
I still think CSS is just to prettify the site. Not just for shoving everything everywhere.


The world could always use more heroes!

I was 24 and it was during a time, well, I'm not going to mention it, sorry for the tease. But wow, it has been ten years already? Damn. I will say this, I was more active on message boards in 2004.

So was I. In those days I lived on message boards.

Now I went even more old-school by living on IRC.

Thanks for welcoming me back T_T As long as Emuz and I are connected, I'll probably continue to make occasional visits to the board.

Too bad I can't find my old layout, or else I could really make the nostalgia rush complete.


Oh, that's good. More oldbies = always nice. :)

Not sure if I had registered 10 years ago. My username would've been Trapster and I was using a layout of dark red & white with a layout pic of Kid Goku, made ChibiTaryn/Tarale. My posts were so short back then. :eyeshift:

Posted by Acmlm
10 years ago was right at the end of my GunBound addiction, to be replaced by twilightRO soon after ... I was spending more time in there than on my board (which had just been wiped), at least I was still on IRC :P



Now's as good of a time as any to say that I'd love if we could revive our RO server. If most of us began playing again, we'd have a great community going there. If only it was easier to attract new people there. And prevent asshattery (as in unleashing dozens of DBs in people's faces when they're hunting MVPs).

I remember you were "GigaTrapster" for a while too.

I tried to get that other Taryn to come here a while ago, but she said no. Something about not fitting in at Acmlm's. Um, what?

I was in first grade ten years ago. My liffe was pretty good and that's really all there was.

I thought this thread would be an interesting revival considering it would be about 2009 rather than 2004. Sorry if it's too big of a resurrection though :P

10 years ago, I was moving from California to Washington, where I would grow and experience many awful times. Dysphoria, divorce, all that good stuff. 10 years later, I'm moving to a different state for a hopefully better to future. Summer to summer. Here's to the next decade :)

10 years ago, I was 18 and:

- had an unrequited crush on a boy (who really wasn't very nice to me, in retrospect)

- struggling with feeling pressured to go to college to become a doctor or some shit i didn't want to do for a living because i had a "brilliant brain" and shouldn't "waste it"

- hilariously browsing online trans resources while insisting to everyone, including the one trans woman i talked to at the time, that i was not trans

- feeling horrible about wanting to be a girl because what would my family think??? would they all hate me. would everyone think i was weird or fake trans or whatever

- insisting that even though i felt uncomfortable with my assigned gender at birth i didn't actually experience "proper gender dysphoria" (i was like one of the only people i knew who even knew the phrase "gender dysphoria")

- was pretty depressed over my life circumstances (i.e. being closeted trans and having no life direction, having severe social anxiety) and was constantly cynical and openly bitter and pessimistic about everything. i think that's a common thing for people at that age, cuz it's kind of an age you're starting to learn about the real world and your expectations are shattered, so it's normal to knee jerk react and say everything is fucked and bad

- was also really obsessed with music and old OSes and trying them out in VMs... uh... i guess some stuff doesn't really change much

i'm out now and transitioning and on HRT and have a girlfriend. life's a lot better. i'm still pretty aimless though

10 years ago, I had graduated college...and was competely miserable. Felt like I had no true prospects in life. No girl, job, and very little happiness.

10 years later, I'm older, wiser, and have all three. :)

Oh hey, I can answer this now!

Ten years ago was the summer of 2009. I was in elementary school. Life was good. (It stopped being good in August 2010 and never really came back...)
