    Default I've Just Realized

    I've been on this site over five years now. And this site has helped me learn so much about the intricacies of D&D, and is full of great people, and an awesome webcomic which I guess by default means I've ALSO been reading for five years (I had no idea it had been going on for so long).

    The point is, you guys are great. It takes really awesome people to keep someone coming back to the same website for five years, and you guys are it.

    Especially the moderators, who over the years have encouraged me to get back to your fun, citizen.

    I agree wholeheartedly.

    I joined back toward the end of 2009 and in the years before and since I've never found another message board with such dedicated mods or such a well-behaved community. This place absolutely rocks socks.

    Let's turn this into a thread of appreciation for the playground, shall we?

    This place does have some on-top-of-it-mods and a friendly community. I sometimes forget that and am shocked by the hostilty and vulgarity when I go to another forum!

    Only other forum as friendly as this one that I have found is Dumpshock.

    Interesting. I was just going to make a thread like this as I just realized that this October is my 6th anniversary on this forum. Feels weird.

    Let's take a quick recap:
    When I started reading OOTS, they were still chasing after Xykon.
    Then I discovered the Depression Thread (where is it now, by the way) and an amazing person - Bor the Barbarian. And also a lot of other really nice people.
    Then I started playing in the Town (or whatever it was called, I really don't remember). Even tried to start a vampire hunting plot there. One day soon (well, at least before 6 more years pass) I should try to gm such a game.
    Here I also met Shademan, who happened to live in the same city in Norway that I do. We became great friends, and he played my henchman on the last larp we were on.

    And Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll, I believe you had a brother that wanted to start playing guitar. Or am I mixing nicks?

    I've been here for what, seven years? Nuts if I know.

    On the RPG boards, I learned how to actually play D&D and all the things I was doing wrong in my attempts to DM. Later I got help understanding how bad I am at DMing, but without anyone ever being rude about it.

    I've posted about my writing and never been told off or been sworn at by a mod. Instead, when I broke the rules by accident I was politely told what I did wrong so I wouldn't do it again. I've taken years off and come back. I like it here.
    You may think of me as:

    Book one is on the Kindle now. It's a mix of hard science fiction and fantasy. How's that work? Surprisingly well.

    Oh hey! It's in print now too!

    Um, I don't think so. I learned to play guitar in my forum-life-time, but my brother has never showed the slightest inkling of musical interest.

    Hey, I've been on this place for just over a quarter of my life, which means we started at roughly the same age. High-five!

    Yeah, wow, four years on here... best forum I've been on I think. I'm very glad my younger self picked this place instead of somewhere more questionable.

    I guess I've been here for what, 6 years, it's been quite a while, and I've changed a hell of a lot in that time. Guess that means I've spent a third of my life here, more like half when you discount the time I don't remember. Huh.

    Okay, here's one: the number of years I've been on this site is equal to 1/15 of my current age plus 8. Solve for x.

    Well that depends. Is it (1/15)X + 8 or (1/15)(X+8)?

    Assuming within-a-month accuracy, you've been on for 2.75 years, so:
    (1/15)(X+8)=2.75 gives us a result of 33.25 years old. Unless, of course, you were simply saying "2 years because I joined in 2010 and now it's 2012," in which case the equation comes out to 22. Unless I'm doing my math wrong, which is entirely possible because I haven't mathed in a while.

    Yes. This. I didn't think people would go into such detail and try to convert the months into decimals.

    You're assuming that the good Doctor is counting by the month, rather than just ignoring that and considering 2010-2012 2 years.

    Since he went to the trouble of describing his age in an algebraic equation, I did not think he would round 10 months down.

    Look at my join date. December '04. Heck, that was when we had the big forum transfer that reset all our accounts, so I've actually been here for even longer than that. Granted, for most of that time I was just reading OOTS and Erfworld and not posting much, but still. I joined sometime in the middle of highschool, now I've been out of college for 4 years, so I've been a member for something like 10 years.

    Damn, that makes me feel old. Oh well, might as well make the best of it.

    I spent a long while lurking on the forum before I actually made this account (had a bad run-in with a few previous communities, wanted both to calm down and see how college would affect my schedule) and I've gone into several different forums both since and before that time. I have yet to encounter another board this much fun, this friendly or this bloody... well, AWESOME. Thank you playground - I actually LIKE talking to people here =3 (No small feat - I HATE social interaction)
