General Do You Remember Your First Day On The Forums?

Recommended Posts

Aww...Yes I remember it all. I was a younger self with the deep ambitions of finally joining this community to which this very show captivated me. After watching Season 2, I was eager and wanting to know what's its like being a part of this fandom. Google was my friend and I looked online for a discussion based community for MLP:FiM and MLP Forums is the place.  I was later sitting at my desk wondering what my username would be and what profile pic to represent me. That was fun and dreary too because I took so long to find a combo that works for me. 

Later on that day I was greeted by many users whom were helpful, cheerful and friendly. I started posting in the forum games and I share my thoughts about the show and eventually my interests grow to such a community.

Actually, yes... considering I haven't been here that long. I got a pretty good warm welcome from a lot of people! Some of which asked if I needed help in DMs and such... and I thought that was really nice of them. :3

First day i was still on the fence about the fandom. At this time, I had watched season 1 and was digging the show so far. Heard about a community that just popped up called bronies. Thought Id poke my head in but i couldnt really do anything without creating an account. Glad i did, cause i met some really chill peeps here and we even met up during bronycon of years past.

When I joined I didn't know anything about human interaction through the internet. I was also pretty anxious and I don't think I did really anything special that day. After that I started to learn

I joined shortly after Season 2 ended on a fairly ordinary night. I was just looking for a place to post my stories at the time, but I quickly grew to like the idea of talking to other fans of the show.

I remember being extremely adamant about posting on the welcome plaza, as I feared that I would be belittled by fellow users.

It was a bit presumptuous on my part, but I was very wrong about it, luckily.

I very vaguely remember my first day here. I have more fond memories of my first few months as a member. ^_^

Yes Jun 20th 2014... the beginning of my Senior year in high school. I was greeted, and most interested in roleplaying. I felt like I made an ass of myself a couple times, but overall a fun time... was my first taste at social media, and I became addicted.

Ah yes. They were happy times. My first real contact with other bronies. I made some friends. All was well.

I joined in April of 2016 after having spent the previous three years on Equestria Forums. It was going downhill there for me and an acquaintance suggested signing up here. I took a look and liked the layout and the amount of activity, so I made an account and never looked back. I wish I'd have come here sooner. My first day was really active and I was surprised at the feedback and friendliness of everypony. I knew I was where I belonged.

I... don't remember...
I don't even know why i came here in the first place... was is somebody leading me here? Maybe it was via ponyville live... i... 

I don't even remember what i did... maybe i uploaded one of my mixes? I have no idea...
I have trouble staying on here so remembering the first day is pretty much impossible at this point.

I remember my first accounts first day. I was terrified over many years of being told to never make accounts on the internet. I went ahead and did though since I was a huge fan of the show back then. I was absolutely terrified just to be here. I was scared someone was going to want to talk to me or if anything I did would get me banned or in trouble. I don't even think I posted anything with my first account. I simply read and was picked out to be chatted with by fellow profile stalkers.

Years later with after certain "Issues" passed; I made a different account. I am still different yet from when I made this account, but I talk, and even post. It still gives me anxiety to message others and post what is on my mind, but I gotta say this site helped me a lot from when I first came about.

I don't remember my very first day but I remember being a member early on. I remember making a topic and it ended up being locked. That confused me and I thought that meant I was in trouble.

I don't remember, actually. It feels like it's been so long since December of last year, and it's definitely been a long time since June of 2013 when I first joined on my old account.

I can't remember back in 2011, but I remember the first pony I talked to when I made my second account was @TwilySparky. I posted a topic asking how to change my profile pic, and he was the very first guy to meet me.

A Day That Shall Live In Infamy.
Nah, just kidding. My first day was brief cause I ended up joining in terror. Not to mention that it was like 11:30p at the time and it was the day before my uncle's wedding. Can't believe I'm almost a 3 year vet here. I feel old. ;w;

Yes, I do remember. I had so much to talk about. I made a rather long post but didn't get much of a response, although the members were very kind and welcoming anyway. I just wanted to meet others that were as excited as I was! I still think I'm the craziest fan of MLP FiM, I just don't show it for fear even the bronies will think I'm nuts. :D

Back in like March of 2013 when I was 13 years old I absolutely loved coming on here, it was a community where I felt I could truly belong. I've was on here almost every day and also on here at school! I've long since went through puberty and along the way had a phase of not liking the show so I stopped around 2015-2016 ish? Now that I'm back I need to catch up from season 5 onwards! It's good to be back, it seems a lot quieter now than it was when I was first on here.

My first day back in June of 2013? I don't exactly recall it. But I do remember that I was a bit cringy at the time (even considering I was 16 then), my least favorite Mane Six Pony (Rainbow Dash) was my favorite at the time because of some stupid (it was stupid looking back on it) meme, and that I slowly began to start feeling like I belonged.

All I remember is I got back from a bad day of school and I have had thoughts about joining for a week.

Yep. My intro was... eh pretty bad. I'm not good at introductions.  :blush:

With that said, I did make some friends shortly after.

Ah yes. Those days where I did not know how this site worked. I'll never forget the time where I posted a Life Advice topic in the Gallery of Goodwill. Lol.
