General Do You Remember Your First Day On The Forums?

Recommended Posts

I remember coming here back in March of this year after I spent months binge watching all seven seasons. Meeting new people is not my strong suit :blush: I was nervous writing my introduction cause I wanted it to be perfect.

I remember being really paranoid about my username being good enough and how confused I was. But everyone in the forums are so nice. It's like all these talking ponies really influenced us:-D

Ahh, I remembered all the way back from the last day of February 2016! I created this account to meet other fans on this site, but only if any other social medias didn't work out for me. You know, I do regret being an inactive user on this site now that I think about it.

Not first day, but during the early days of my membership I wanted to find MLP videos, I think I might have created thread(s) for it.

I also searched for ponies playing MTG (signature) or Fighting is Magic.

I did miss the very most of the topics and post here because I didn't use any "unread/new posts"buttons, mostly because 70% of the threads were/are about spam games I am not interested in at all.

I "solved" that by a ) working by notifications most of the time. I follow a lot of forums sections, a few staffers, and topics.

and b ) created my own "unread/new posts" button which just skips the "spammy sections" of MLPF. I rarely use it, though, working by notifications 98% of the time.

As far as I can remember, I think so.

A little, I remember it was exciting to find another forums that is primarily based on MLP! I also was very impressed to see that there were many active users on here, and just to think that there used to be a ton more on here as well! I already had experience in another forums about MLP when I joined, so I didn't have much of a problem creating an account and posting content on here.

Don't remember my first day here, as it was so long ago. But my first day back earlier this year, I reconnected with some old friends, and made a few new ones.

Posting a Life Advice topic in the Gallery of Goodwill. Yep, good times. :proud:

I think so. I'd made a theory about Rainbow Dash's top speed (which turned out to be a lot slower than mach 10), and posted it here on the forums to see if I would get any discussions going. I don't think it did. :P

I think I basically registered to request fanarts and created a topic with that in mind, esp. comics. There wasn't a huge response lol.

I mostly remember just being really shy and too nervous to post much of anything. It took years before I figured out how to make friends on here. (You know, chat with people I don't know) :muffins:

I was sitting in one of my college history courses. It must’ve been a pretty boring lecture that day, but I was thinking about ponies instead.

Problem was that I didn’t have any friends that were also into ponies, and I NEEDED someone to talk to about it.

So I Googled “my little pony forum” and boom. Glanced around, liked what it saw and joined!

I joined very shortly after Season 2 ended. I wanted to talk to more people about the show and find more ways to get my fanfiction noticed, so I started searching for a MLP forum and the rest should go without saying. I don't care too much about getting my stories recognized anymore, but this place is definitely something I still very much care for. :fluttershy:

It was only the other week, so I really should be able too... but not really. I came here to celebrate finishing watching the show - that's why I've mostly been sticking to the spoiler forum so far. But after next week...

It was such a long time ago, I can't remember. I think it was sometime when mlp was at its peak in popularity?

I was prodded into joining by someone that, at the time, I considered a friend.  There wasn't anything special about it; one moment I wasn't here, and then...I was.

It's had ups and downs, but in the long run, I've met some pretty wonderful people here and my experience has been mostly positive.

Kind of hard to remember now but I vaguely remember making my introduction post and feeling really nervous about it as I didn't know what to say and don't really like drawing attention to myself but it being ok.

I have been on this site since August 2nd, 2013, so I have been on here for.... SIX YEARS! My gosh, has it really been that long.... Well anyway..

I kinda remember it, I joined cause I knew someone that was on here doing commissions at the time, (I still am in contact with them though they haven't peeped on here since 2013) and I thought "Hey.. Maybe I could try to make some new friends on the MLP forum as well as the friends I already have from my local (Colorado) brony group" So I ended up joining in 2013 and was welcomed by a lot of people. A lot of people that used to be active are now gone at this point that I talked to, but I still keep in contact with a few of the people who left, like @Electrobolt I think is the big one who I am still great friends with and talk to on a daily basis.

But on a first day basis I don't remember much other than introducing myself, but I did meet a good deal of friends on here though! 6 years and I still am here, and that doesn't plan to change anytime soon. ^^

I also remember that my Best Forum Friend For Five-ever @Celli gave me one of my first brohoofs

There was a time when you had zero brohoofs, that's CrAzY!

I joined back in June 2014 because, at the time, I was into MLP.

I'm still a brony now, but I'm more here for the fan art than for the show.
