I know I said I wouldn't create more threads for a while, but I thought this thread would potentially be extremely interesting and I couldn't wait. Feel free to sue me. I still have my lawyer from the time Pavel sued me for talking about astrology.


I'm sure that when each one of us signed up for this site, at first we felt like a fish out of water, then slowly (or quickly?) started to find our footing, not without disagreements with others possibly, and perhaps eventually have integrated quite well into the forum.

How would you describe your Buzzjack "progress"? Have you changed as a poster? Have you changed significantly as a person during your time here? etc. Feel free to go as deep as you want. Please try to be as honest as you possibly can stomach. Also, feel free to talk about how you think others have changed here.

I was 17 when I signed up and am now 24.

When I first signed up, I was a naive mess who would occasionally bold certain posts of mine and make them really big, just so they would be read laugh.gif I first signed up just for BJSC, and didn't really look inside the Lounge or other places until probably months later.

I mixed up posters constantly, probably didn't make much of an effort to really get to know them personally, and was just generally slightly annoying, though not without my good qualities - which I think have developed even more now.

I used to have a hard time understanding what others were talking about, and I would take everything literally, which people mentioned at the time.

I am less afraid to speak my mind now about all sorts of matters in a way that really makes sense. I am older now and have become even more articulate than I was, therefore am more able to coherently express opinions without them seeming as disjointed. I think I will always be someone who rambles though, I am sorry tongue.gif I do ramble, but I think in terms of expressing my opinions or general things, I am more coherent now. I would like to think I am coherent in my rambling, if that makes sense.

I am also less interested in getting attention now and more interested in giving attention to others. Finding out what makes them tick, finding out their interests, and even banter, which was such a foreign concept to me until very recently, I would say.

Shock value doesn't interest me as much anymore. I have to admit I used to get little urges secretly to say something really out there just for the sake of it - though not without hesitation, I might add. Nowadays I might still occasionally say potentially shocking (or at least surprising, to put it milder) things, but the experience of this has become much more natural and less to do with some sort of momentary emotional gratification. I still post what I want to post, but don't particularly expect a reaction or for something intriguing to come out of it.

One thing I have always struggled with is feeling awkward after I have said something. This is something that I don't really know how to work on consciously, but it seems to be improving naturally I would say. I know that we are all in the same boat in a way, we are a community, and because I have a much stronger sense of this now, I'm able to feel more comfortable around you in saying what I want to say - with limits. I'm not saying I don't feel awkward at all anymore though, I STILL do, and there are STILL times when I hold back. I often wonder, and it has always been like this, "Hmm, should I post this?"

I seem to talk about myself too much sad.gif lmao

Now it's time for YOU to talk about YOURself yayyyy! (and as I said, feel free to mention others too - if I get more inspiration in that area, I will do so too!)

Really looking forward to reading what people have to say about these matters!

Have fun etc. etc. etc.

I use the abbrevation etc. too much etc.

I was 17 and am now nearly 27 (!)

I have become more intergrated than I was initially. Probably more cynical/negative as well.

Could some kind person who has these kinds of powers please add a poll asking how old people were when they joined? It didn't work for some reason when I did it. I had like < 12, 12-13, 14-16, 17-19, 20-23, 24-28, 29-32, 33-38, 39-45, 46-49, 50+ or something like that.

First off Mattias: no one is complaining at you starting more threads. It's good for the place. More people should take your initiative.

All that's changed about me is that I've become more confident to chuck posts out, and I may have refined certain areas of my taste in entertainment.

edit: Added your poll, I smoothed out a few age ranges because the majority of us were sub-20 when we first started.

hmm well Lee...

There are two ways that this could be taken. Did you give up reading my opening post after the first sentence? Or did you give up reading things after the first sentence when you were a newbie here? Cos I sure did that sometimes.

I was 13 when I signed up and now I'm 15!
I'd say I'm way less annoying then I used to be now and that I feel like I've come out of my shell a lot over the last year on here wub.gif
