On this post, I have made my 1,000th post. Quite litterally and I'm proud of it. However, I decided to make this worthwhile, so I hope you enjoy it. I: Story of me being in this forum: On August 22, 2008, Phsycical asked me to come to the forum. He said forums have benefits that the chat didn't, such as being able to make long posts, experess my opinion on things better, and more safety, although I felt pretty safe already. So I decided that I would, so I signed up. I was so excited, it would be the first forum that I would sign up for. When I finally signed up, I started to post rightaway. The first person who I met was SethStarScream, who was initally my friend, but the argument over the Wii sadly ended that. I also met a lot of other people over the time, such as Blaze, Aaron, Gmoz, and Tonyp. Sure I go to other places like Nintendo Life and IGN nowadays, but even when I'm inactive for awhile, I'll always remember this place. On December 4, 2009, I finally make 1,000 posts and proud of my achievement. II: What has changed for me: 1. I think the Wii is a great system instead of just a solid one. 2. My original Youtube account was hacked. I'm now under marioluigi1983. 3. I no longer constantly argue with people about Nintendo outside of IGN. 4. My main goal on Youtube is to stop hackers. 5. If I'm going to get a Playstation 3. I will be getting one by next year. 6. I no longer consider myself a Nintendo fanboy. 7. I am in 10th grade now. 8. I go to a high school instead of a freshman school. 9. My grades have dropped a bit (All A's in 9th grade, one A for the 1st six week in 9th grade and A-B for the 3rd six week.) 10. I started to use emulation, although not constantly. 11. I've gotten rid of my DS Lite for a DSi. III: What hasn't changed for me: 1. My commitment to this forum. 2. That I'll always remember this forum. 3. I still love Nintendo. 4. I'm not getting an Xbox 360. 5. I still hate Cartoon Network. IV: Conclusion: I would like to thank each and every member here for making my visits to the forum a lot of fun, even on stuff I disagree with. You have helped me encourage visiting a lot of places on the Internet that I've never thought even existed. I'll be around for a long while.
