AW DANG I MISSED MY 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

I was actually gonna make a post about it like a month ago but I totally forgot. I'll go ahead and say what I was going to anyway though.

I found VGF through SMBHQ and Neglected Mario Characters like a lot of people did (though the comic had already been fairly inactive by the time I got around to it). Still, it seemed that the NC forums were active enough so I made an account and started posting.

VGF was actually the first community I was a part of. I had never joined any forums or anything like that before, I was always just a bystander on the internet, and I lacked the social ettiqute for it (as evidenced by the fact that I ragequit VGF within a month). But I didn't stay gone long. Something about this hellsite called me back. Maybe it was the fact that I had invested so much in learning about the community, or maybe it was those sweet forum skins we used to have (the grey and pea-green hues of the NC skin are permanently etched into my memory).

Anyway, over the years, VGF has put up with my embarrassing past selves, from the 13yo who was irrational and overly sensitive to the 18yo who didn't have a filter or concept of taste. VGF was always somewhere where I had friends if I needed them, and even if I didn't. I genuinely think that all of you who I've been around all these years have done a big part in shaping me into my embarrassing present self, and I thank you all for that. :)

I'm still not sure how I managed to post over 32k times though.

I will always associate VGF with forest green because of the Zelda forum skin which I had set to my default.

This place was my first real community I was signed up for and involved with, too. This hellhole acquainted me with internet norms and gave me all of the early 2000's internet culture experiences we all went through.

And here we still are. Why doesn't this site permit us to escape ?

Nice on the ten years, dude! I feel at this point that I'll never forget our awkward WoT conversations.
