Title: Today is my 9-year anniversary on NWR.
Post by: Phil on June 09, 2021, 08:52:41 PM
I don't really have a punchline, unless you consider my insanely short time writing for NWR one. Hey-oooooo!

Congratulations!

I’m approaching 15 years so I will be taking my leave soon.

I've been in the network since 1999. I started off on opn2000 then that sort of merged with planetn2000 and then that became planetgamecube and that turned into nwr. Really crazy to think how far we've come since then. In the oldest version of the forums I told everyone I was a swamp creature made of broccoli. I rememeber I uploaded a drawing of my character and then they took our ability to post pictures away. We had to cater to dial up speeds back then. I'm 37, I've been here since I was 15.

Apparently I registered with the site in 2016 so I am coming up on 5 years.

Depends on the iteration. I followed the old N2000 and other proto-NWR sites, and I've also gone by alternate names in the past, so its got to be close to 20 years now I suppose. Expect I'll be a forum rat here for the life of the site or my lifetime, whichever comes first.

Congrats Phil, happy to have you around!

Does anyone remember the MEGATON thread I want to say in 2003 or 2004 in the Planet Gamecube days?

I think my first posts were in there under a different account. I think I picked a really generic user name to post under.  Something like NintendoFan80 or something like that.

I think after a few posts I left and lurked on Gamefaqs, Go Nintendo and VG Chartz before coming back here in 2008 under my Maxi moniker before leaving in 2011 for 5 years and then coming back here under my BeautifulShy name in 2016. Been here since.

Megaton was all the rage.

Wasn't Megaton a banned work and was censored on the forum? Also Celda was banned due to the nerd rage over Wind Waker art style.

That I don't remember for sure. The biggest action was probably just closing some threads that got too heated.

Witnessing The Wind Waker for the first time was pretty nifty. It was certainly unexpected. I think I was initially a big supporter.
