Title: when did you register?
Post by: jhocking on 26 Aug 2009, 13:12
Just for the hell of it I clicked on my own profile to see when I started posting here.  fucking hell!

Then I started checking some others, and a lot of them were not at all what I expected.  Clearly my memory is worthless.

Mention whatever was going on in the forum when you first joined.  Dates are useless to me; I want to get a feel for who joined when based on forum events (the quiki had just started, keiffer was a mod, whatever.)

Holy crap, I still remember makeout hobo.  I thought when I started posting again, people would be all, "I remember this guy."  Boy if I was wrong.  My ego clearly outstrips my actual self, which isn't surprising at all.

Don't worry Bassist, I remember you.  I was going to make a post about "whoa BB is back on the forums" but I couldn't find a thread where it seemed appropriate and then it just became something that everyone clearly already knew about.  I was happy about it, though.  Welcome back.

I remember when I first joined I was lurking a hell of a lot more and I remember reading a thread in the music forum where someone said, "I like that Mogwai song with no vocals," and someone corrected it to, "I like that Explosions in the Sky song with no vocals," and someone else siggied it.

When I joined, I had actually been using the name "Sphincter of Theory."  I decided not to join with that name, because people would actually know music theory on this board.  They didn't (by the way, not an insult).  They're just allergic to music that people enjoy.

I joined on September 1, 2006, so I have been here just about three years.  I started reading the comic about the time Marten was applying for the library job, LibraryJob (http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=691), and I read that because of a mention in the unshelved web comic site.

I have no clue. I remember when Tania signed up and when Hocking was still heavy on image use and humour.

Edit: Wait no, I registered after the discuss forum.
I think what happened is, somebody died and then I was written in as a replacement character.
I think the original character was cast in 2005 and was killed off last year. Something about the character being too similar to a pre-existing one that already had an established fanbase.
Edit: I remember a Joan Rivers guitar with "June" beneath it? June 2005?
Edit:I'm fuzzy on details. I left my memories in other people on the forum and so I rely on them to recall previous event and occurances that may concern me.
There's 6 people here and each one contains one part of a six part story.
Edit: Hey, I'm looking for somebody to read all of my posts before I think of them, any takers?
Title: Re: when did you register?
Post by: Alex C on 26 Aug 2009, 14:46
I registered well before I really did any posting, and if I remember correctly there was some event in the web comic that incited an influx of new posters roughly around the time I started posting with any regularity; I forget what event because I rarely read the damned thing. It was all a bit depressing because my first experiences with the forum mostly consisted of reading threads where people posted how the forum wasn't fun any more and how none of the new people were interesting, abla bla bloo, etc. Definitely something of a transition phase.

fuck all ya'll I'm an oldster
I remember the forum going boners for Talking Heads more than Bedhead, there was an awesome boarder named AndSheeWas who ruled and RAY posted and it was awesome. I was in on the Very First Mixtape Exchange, and I got a two disc special with all lyrics and also commentary by Khar. The first disc was "not scary" the second disc was "very scary". I still had the lyrics as of when I moved in June, but not the cds anymore. I remember lots of people joining who were rad, like Julia specifically because Jeph made her avatars

also this has been my same username forever, though it'd be nice to know the people who've been here longer than me who changed their usernames when I left. People like el_capitan and milkmandan and s_lion... some of these people may still be here and I wouldn't even know!

I joined November 21, 2007. I had been lurking for a long time before I joined, plundering the Mediafire thread, and I was one of those people who registered because I felt bad about taking and never giving back. I think a lot of my earlier posts are gone because they were in the original MF thread. Also, looking at old posts doesn't really help me remember what was going on in the forum because for a long time I was too shy to post in this section of the forum; I mostly talked about music and films in their respective areas of the fora.  

Did Kieffer get banned when he was Dirk Hopeless? I know he was being pretty abrasive when I was a newb, and then I didn't see him post for a while. Oh! And Jackie was still around, and kind of cluttering threads flirting with someone I've totally forgotten. ...Actually I'm pretty sure I kind of contributed to that. So uh, earlier posts not entirely free of embarrassment.

I joined on the 20, October 2005. Nearly 4 years now.


I joined a little after I Like Fish was started, I think.

Ally was still stifled_dreams (she told me to post more because she loved my little squid avatar).The QC Dating service thread was around at that time. I talked about myself a lot. The first photo I posted of myself was this (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v663/Lapuz/me/ME.jpg).
I remember the quiki, and trying to use the IRC channel to talk to people before gabbly was around. I remember Heretic, and Chuck and elcap. When I joined Aphi was still around. I remember when I was excited to be on the top 10 of posters who had spent the most time active on the forums (I remember when I was number 10, rather than most definitely number 1). I remember when I finally hit 1000 posts, and how long that took. I remember going and meeting fatty and jimmy for lunch in Sydney, and meeting lunchy and jamie and Thnikkaman in Newcastle for a baked goods party. Seriously guys, this thread is making me really nostalgic.

I crashed Bibliophile's welcome thread and got in a fight with Khar about the appropriate punishment for paedophiles. I also complained that thrash metal was lame (a view I still hold) and Miserateur said he was going to "feed me to the blacks". I'm not sure if that was a racist remark but it sounded like it was.

Though I did leave for two or three years I think and only DanMnem, Keiffer, Julia and I think Emilio (?) remembered me

I have read the rules. I will adhere to them, as I'm a moderator at Anti-Rice.com forums and know the annoyingness that is a stupid poster.

April 12, 2007.

My most standout memory from early on was a thread about that kid in Georgia who was going to jail for like five years for having sex with a girl who nailed like five dudes at a college party or something. I got absolutely railed for using an apparently taboo word. Tommy eventually jumped in and defended me and he was my hero until I realized how utterly boring he was.

I also recall the blind date thread (In which I was actually involved in an attempted date trade where I was going to trade onewheelwizzard to pen for linds or something, funny how that worked out) early on in my days.

Then there was You As Your Avatar week which, come to think of it, should be fast approaching.

I don't really remember much about what was happening when I registered. I didn't post for a long time, and wasn't really a poster till 2006-ish. I started spending bunches of time here when I had a day job where they often didn't give me enough work to do, and said job had me living in Richmond Hill, which is an awful place to live which is far away from everything except sprawling suburbs and an absence of living people.
I remember Gryff was super cool and I started using the forums on work time because I wanted to be quick on the draw with clever remarks. I accidentally usurped his shtick and summarized threads for a while.
Also I think Gabbly started not too long after I started spending more time here?
Pre-quiki.

(particularly considering the fact that if I stopped posting tomorrow probably no one would notice).
Yeah maybe you've spent time here and I wouldn't notice if you were gone tomorrow but if some months went by without you then hey, I'd be like, where's that girl who is neat and smart and doesn't post often but looks adorable when she posts pictures.

When I say the word cunt, I feel like I am stabbing my at  heart through my eyeball.
It definitely affects me in a strange way and in a certain context it'll make me super uncomfortable, but I do not think it is a word that contains the devil.

Actually, the word in question was slut. The word retard was the word he used later that got some people on his ass (I seem to recall my use of the word slut being actively referred to as a retarded thing to do, which just opened a HUGE can of worms). I'm not going to shit on him for it, though, he sent me a rather nice apology PM a while later, which I greatly appreciated. It was all just a big bullshit misunderstanding.

And You As Your Avatar Week is the last week of September, it seems. It was in November last year because Tommy forgot.

April 4th, 2005. That makes me one of the longest-registered people in this thread, which is a little weird.

I have no idea what was going on with the forum when I joined because I pretty much confined myself to music discussion for a very long time. Looking at my early posts I appeared to bang on about hardcore and emo a lot and complained about the lack of good pop punk these days, it's nice to know I'm such a model of development. It's also reminded me that XmalcolmX is still a great name for a band.

I remember being greatly offended that I THOUGHT we had a cool new person in what had been a large pool of absolute morons joining (This was around the time of hands down ass up and a few other absolute winners) and it turned out it was just Darryl.

Somewhere along the line I made a thread about breaking through a door to my freedom where everyone got pissed that I declared myself badass of the week (which I totally was). I think I had like 100 or so posts at the time.

Pets! thread, Any Rat Fanciers Thread, Bright Copper Kettles and Warm Woolen Mittens, Night Lights and Teddy bears... YOU! YOU BETTER NOT BE SOBER! just started.

I started a thread in the music forum about wanting to listen to more metal or something, and then never ever went back.

We started Tribal Wars around that time, someone else started my account. Thinking back we had a hell of a good run on what was it, World 6?

I lurked for quite some time, then spent the grand majority of the time I posted making small comments on other people's posts or trying to say something funny that didn't make me out to be an idiot. 

And I also make a point of trying my best not to piss any of the mods off.  Or anyone off, for that matter.  That led to me being not particularly well-known, which I am ok with.

My first post in the Sandbox (posts before that were comic discussion, doesn't count) was to marvel about people who don't know how to use chopsticks.  I'm pretty sure I've done that a couple times since too, way to get the ball rolling on me saying the same thing over and over.

I also seem to remember that you work(ed) at some sort of sport or recreation kind of place where that was taken. I'm pretty sure you mentioned something about living in the meth capital of the world in Discuss! and explained the highly disturbing effects of the stuff to me. I also want to say you're a man with bad circulation and you get cold hands so you wear gloves a lot, but I now have a horrible feeling I've constructed a strange composite character out of other people and none of this relates to you in the slightest.

I remember this one too, and how excited I was when I got to number 10 (and then dropped straight back off again). That was when we switched over to the SMF forums, I think. I joined December 01, 2005. To comment on the BLAM strip I think? I have very little memory of a lot of the things that happened before, cos of my ridiculously poor memory, despite the fact I've spent 55 and a half days here over the past three years.

Then I joined a couple times a month for about two years.
Then I was a mod.
Then I got banned.
Then I got banned again.

Then I joined again!

When I joined the first time I thought the Internet was really super awesome, please, and I think I was like 16?

The problem is that you're not being provocative enough. Don't be afraid to show a little bit more skin, maybe more photos of your bare chest. Try talking a little more seductively. You gotta remember, most of us here are super lonely and want to reach out to people. Just take advantage of that. Make people think like they have a chance of making it with you. People are more receptive when they're really attracted to you, and a big part of appearing attractive is to appear really really REALLY easy.
Basically...
Dress like you want my cock up your arse.

I know my time got reset. At the moment it is 43 days and 59 minutes.

I've really only started posting a fair bit in maybe the past year and a half or so? I've posted pretty steadily since I joined, but it was mostly in forums that aren't HURR and entirely unremarkable. I think it was a very long time before anybody actually deigned to acknowlege one of my posts.

According to my old posts, when I first registered I only had one tattoo, and I was skinny! Dang!

One of my first posts was chewing someone out for not being nice to n00bs:

SHUT UP -> THINK -> WRITE -> REVIEW WHAT YOU WROTE -> POST

Yeah, cos pissing all over this thread -in 30pt bold italics, no less- is completely constructive. Unless you're a mod (I'm assuming you're not) then you're really in no position to bitch about the perceived worth of any thread. No one is forcing you to read it.

Practice what you preach there buddy

This forum would just about be the greatest place on the Net if all the "veterans" got off their high horses and eased off the newbs a little bit.

HILARIOUS!


Oh shit:

Quote from: Favourite lyricists thread
Neil Peart (Rush)
Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta)- yes, really.

WHAT

It turns out many of the forumites I admire and think of as the "forum celebrities" have been here for far less time than me.

I think the thing that people would actually remember as happening around the time I registered was that we had that "Australian Eyes Only" thread, where all of the Australians made plans to attack the rest of the world with our most deceptively cuddly wildlife. (Instead of the usual, obviously deadly wildlife)

Also, this is my 4000th post. Jesus fuck! I think the past 3000 have been since about a year ago.

Now I am almost 22 and I kind of hate the Internet but it is in my fuccin blood and all. And sometimes I try to make the board awesome again but I think that if I do I will just get banned again.

If making it awesome means reliving your experience as a 16-year-old, perhaps it would be better to move beyond it...

How do you people manage that much time?

i don't know what the current meebo situation is, but way way back when i actually used to participate in gabbly it was hosted on the forum and so all of the time you spent in gabbly was also recorded as you being logged into the forum. i also used to leave myself logged into the forum way more often when i was still in school cos i'd spend days off studying while checking new posts every few hours between study breaks, and even if i spent a total of maybe 10-15 minutes actually reading and posting i would ultimately appear to be logged in all day for like 15 hours.

...except i have also quit the forum a whole bunch of times since i joined and my time off has added up to maybe two years total so uh, part of that might also be all of those times i have sat in front of my computer on the forum with nothing to do except hit the refresh button every 30 seconds.

That makes sense now.  Also, if what I've quoted below is true, then it'll make even more sense, because that'll mean I've spent as much time as I have over the past week, rather than over my entire time on the board.

The forums are significantly bigger than the used to be, and the comic attracts a different sort of person these days. We can say it's because we don't chew on new members anymore but I think it's because we're harder to please than we were four years ago.
You could say that being more tolerant has persuaded some less than desirable folk to stick around a little longer than we'd like, but at the same time a lot of the core regulars now are people that would almost certainly not have stayed if we were as hostile as we used to be. I'm fairly comfortable with this.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go look for somebody to bully in the music forum.

It's not just time logged on, it's time active. Leaving your computer logging in to the forums for days will not work because it goes by if you have done something in the past 15 minutes. I got this amount of time because I have my computer on basically as soon as I get up and the forum running and I check threads and refresh in the hopes that something interesting has happened fairly regularly while doing something else. I also didn't have a job for a long time, so I had a lot of spare time.

Still, 206 days is a lot.

Regged on October 8, 2006 which is about a month and a half after I snuggled up with the QC kids.

I remember "doing it wrong" and randomly showing up on gabbly before I even had made an account. I used to talk with vegikitkat, nolawnocrime, supersheep, fatty, princy, tommydski, and valleyparade every day on gabbly and had early forum crushes on Tania and Julia. For about two weeks everyone assumed I was Kieffer, then the argument became whether I was more like Tommy or Kieffer, or some terrible hybrid of the two. I used to just post and hang out on gabble gabble hey! during work when I was trying to get fired, which also lead to my first thread creation, as Tommy demanded I document my efforts with the forums. Within 2 months of joining, I was hanging out with Kieffer and Huda in NYC, and it has been a swift downhill road since.

Check out my awesome intro post dudes:
Quote
After a good 5-10 minutes of debate, I have decided to give in to my inner internet addict and joined the forums. I only recently discovered the love that is QC, and ended up reading all 700+ comics in one day. Luckily my job is slow, and boss slower. The only downside being, now I go from 100s per day, to 1.

Anyhow, the mushy about me stuff:
During the day I get my liberal arts education on at the University of Connecticut and work as office bitch in a business department there for my staying alive money.
When not chained into a desk or cubicle, I'm usually either wasting away hours on the internets, or out doing the hipster college kid act. I live about an hour outside Boston, so I all too often empathize with Marten being scrawny indie kid without a clue.

I am sure I will quickly become far too addicted here for my own good, so thanks a lot you enablers.

I will never leave.

That's pretty much my problem with this place altogether. Like, I'm obviously not gonna become like a troll and just fuck with shit, that not my style, but I will show up and grumble occasionally about a place I really enjoyed before now being kinda lame and shitty. Like when your favourite local hotspot gets infested with tourists. Take that analogy how you want.

Jesus did I miss the wagon on this thread.

Join date: April 10th, 2007

I was 15 years old. Emilio admitted that he made his friend listen to Insane Clown Posse for half an hour. Manda asked how "emo boys can deal with skinny jeans" and I explained that they're rather comfortable, setting off a years long joke about my pants being too tight. Ruyi got this (http://ducktalesmoon.ytmnd.com/) stuck in my head.

Oh and at some point probably long after I joined that dude with the psychedelic rock band who thought he knew everything was around and then left or got banned and I honestly don't remember his name.

Edit: and Huda still posted.

He was our very own Matrix Fanboy at best.

He was banned for outwardly dissing the comic when Jeph specifically asked him not to read it if it bothered him so much. I agreed with Jeph and honestly, he was one of the few people on this forum I really didn't really like. I tried to help him rebrand himself out of politeness when he was at the height of his unpopularity but it was ultimately in vain because his opinions and manner of posting was so utterly labourious.

Haven't been there in so long I don't know about specific places, I'm sure it's changed a lot since I was there.  hell, a Cheesecake Factory had just been built there last time I was there, so the whole area might be shitty now.  That sure would be a pity; Southside = bars, Strip District = clubs.  Still, gotta love that the way to get there is the Hot Metal Bridge (that is not a nickname, hee hee.)

WOAH EPIC ZOMBIE THREAD. It got linked in the coffee thread so I feel like it's ok to resus.

I joined at some point in August 2005, just shy of my final high school exams. Can you imagine why?

Over the years I've come and gone depending on how busy I am in real life. Typically I haven't been overly busy but I don't really feel the need to post very often any more.

When I joined there was no quicki, Ruyi and Dan posted (does she still? I can't tell, too many UN changes) and Tania was a newbie. I remember Tommy was being a scathing dick about something and I argued with hm a few times about things of no consequence. It seems like a lot of the regular posters now are after my time. I lurked the IRC for a while then Jimmy got me into the meebo.

I don't think I made a hi I'm new thread but if someone can find one I'd be amused.
