I think it depends on the species

Quote from: popo447 on January 13, 2020, 09:04:34 PMI recently had the thought to come on here and reflect on my most formative years of internet participation. Look at my post history from nearly a decade ago and you'll see how I started out as someone illiterate in the archaic ways of internet forum etiquette and have since gone on to become a student of exactly how people develop schema for online communication.

As part of my own interest, and as someone poised to become an educator in composition and communication, I wanted to come back to what is perhaps the ground zero of my journey on the internet—this thread on this forum, where so many of you reluctantly got to know me back in the day. I wish to return one last time to laugh at how annoying and naive my adolescent trolling was, but also to reflect on just how far I've come in the time between the creation of this account and now.

It's put a smile on my face and gave me a bit more insight into how I've learned to exist in communities online.

Thanks for the memories, NinSheetMusic...

This was a great post.

Also, reading the following posts about people realizing how young they were when they made their way here... I was 14 when I joined and am soon turning 30. That means that NSM has existed for the majority of my life.

The early 2000's were a great time on the internet. Forums were so much better than this current social media stuff. And now I feel like some old grandpa visiting the small town he was born in, remembering the time before everyone moved to the large cities nearby.

Yeah. It's very sad. I don't have the same sense of community anymore.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

I miss the forum being active and NSMTWG. There are pros and cons to forums, as there are to Discord, so I think it'd be nice if we were able to make good usage of both platforms.
And the moral of the story: Quit while you're a head.

Personally, I don't participate in discord communities because of the pacing. I just can't seem to be able to keep up with the conversation well enough to participate whereas forums give me the leisure to pop in, read the last 2 pages, say what I wanna, then peace out.

I mean I've finally considered logging in after so long. When i joined this site I was so annoying. I do not like my old posts or stories at all, considering how much I've improved as a writer and as a person. Yet still i appreciate them being here.
