Hello beautiful souls

Post by PKfire » Thu May 17, 2018 12:24 pm

Just making a quick introduction. Interestingly enough what drew me to this forum was the kindness that many of you who have been a part of this forum for many years showed a friend of mine over a decade ago. I see you have "Knux Memorial Forum," stickied on your front page. Knux grew up two houses down from me. We both collected pokemon cards, beanie babies, and action figures. This kid loved to collect Hasbro star wars action figures. He had every single one imaginable. He found friends here when he couldn't go to school anymore because of his leg and his illness in general. So from the bottom of my heart thank you for all you've done over the years. I hope to be an active contributor to this community as well. I was a part of the GameFAQs community for quite a while. It was apparent that trolls had taken over 90 percent of the domain before 2010 and now it's just a zoo. I'm an avid gamer on all platforms but for some reason, I could never get into the DS and 3DS maybe it was the handheld aspect WHO KNOWS. I'm currently playing Dishonored 2 (mediocre) and just picked up XC2 for the switch :bitnaughty: If you live near a ToysRus most of them are having huge sales. (just saying)

Hello and welcome to our special blend of madness... *gives you marshmallows*.

That was a lovely introduction... and brings up a lot of emotion. Knux was truly loved around here and we remember him. And miss him. I'm glad you got to know him, as well.

I'm looking forward to seeing you around VGF. We're a little community these days but there's still many avid gamers around who would enjoy discussing games. ;) :D

Happiest faerie of VGF.

Yeah hey welcome to VGF! We can't boast much but at least we're (probably) better than GameFAQs.

Take a seat and stay a while, we got plenty to do here.

Wow, small world! I sadly joined VGF much too late to get to know Knux, but I know he was loved here. :)
Do you know how much you mean to me

Welcome, friend. I think of Knux often and with much fondness, and sadness at his absence. He's still very loved and missed, but I'm touched that his influence in your life has brought you here. I hope you enjoy being part of our small yet tenacious community.

Thank you, everyone. While they are sadder circumstances that brought me here, I'm more than happy to be a part of this community. @DarkZero @Saria Dragon of the Rain Wilds I'd much rather buy my paper from Dunder Mifflin than Staples. In that way, I believe VGF is better than GameFAQs. Staples just doesn't have the customer service you guys do. @Scarecrow I heard that 1st edition holo Charizard is worth some serious money nowadays. Never too late to open that box in the basement and check! :lookout:

Hello there. Glad to have you with us. My time here didn't overlap much with Knux's, but he was so loved here.
