I've been here just under five years and still astounds me quite a bit as that's just under a quarter of my life. I nearly went to post a thread like this a month or two ago but somehow got sucked back into this place. I think if you're going to have a goodbye thread you might as well post a wall of emotions instead of a "Fuck you guys" or just not post and fade into the distance like I was currently doing. I've also finally been demodded but when you've only merged two topics together in the past two years that generally happens. Sort of reflects how I've fallen away.
[quote]Mainly post within entertainment forums. Have been a mod forever and my modding consists of locking/merging topics occasionally and warning someone roughly once a year. I don't talk to many dgzers outside of the forum baring the odd facebook chat or stray into irc. I've spent a lot of time here but never got too actively involved mainly because anything that gets planned falls through. I have hatred for many and used to argue/engage into conversation a lot more yet its hardly worth it anymore as most of the userbase is retarded or just sheep around like proles. Still there are still quite a few up and coming members in the film section (video games not so much) and generally still a bunch of solid posters in the entertainment forums who are much smarter than me. I really hate the rep system and how bitchy niggers get about it, can be quite sad to read. I hardly read the drama, I have basic outlines of what happened in the Pengwan/Cody scenarios yet reading the threads its mainly just people talking bullshit and keeping to their cliques. Usually its over nothing, sort of like when a celebrity says something they shouldn't and it gets blown out of proportion. Dgz has been a significant part of my life due to the absorption of time spent here but I don't have all that much to show for it, I'm really the person who's always at the partys judging people in the corner and doing nothing about it.
And now you know a bit about my online psyche.[/quote]
I posted this back in July and still stands true pretty much.
I should of really put more effort into knowing some people here better. I mean I know the guys I would consider my best dg friends wouldn't put me in the same category.
Dgz has helped me in some regards. Music wise I stopped listening to the top 100 and while I didn't jump onto people recommendations, it did help me expand my taste and now music plays a major role in my life. I like to think I at least got some people to get into film a bit more as that was the major section I was involved in.
I mentioned sheeping around like proles above. Seriously easiest way to be liked here is just be real and talk like you would normally. Sure you can take it to another level like Salad does but its very easy to notice that the best and funniest members on this board just post exactly the way they want. I always get the feeling with a lot of people that they proof read their posts four times over and also check to make sure they're not upsetting any of the 'big' members in the thread.
I should probably mention Yugioh as thats the reason most of us initially came here. I literally quit as soon as I joined here but that didn't have really anything to do with here. But I stuck around because I obviously liked some of the members here. I did enjoy my yugioh and top 4d twice but that was in western australia which is like claiming you won an argument against dark cloud.
Guess I'll talk a bit more about my irl self. I procrastinated most of through high school, then did the same while studying IT and film. I was only working as a video clerk during that time. Now I'm an apprentice mechanical fitter which sorta sets me up for life. I just want to finish so I always have something to fall back on. I am better than you at Table Tennis. I once broke my wrist snowboarding on the training flats 5 minutes into a trip. I'm currently fighting with my girlfriend of three and a half years and have come off a very crazy weekend. I have watched The Social Network 27 times. I often don't complete video games I buy. I'm 6"3 140lbs. Just add www.facebook.com/OMGFridge or omgfridge on steam/xbox/ps3 etc if you think we should be friends. I'm 20 years old. I'm going to delete the app for dgz off my phone. I'll check this thread and then leave for good. I won't be the guy that comes back after 2 weeks or says he won't be and comes back anyway.
I'm pretty certain I'll miss this place. If you liked me, then cya, I probably liked you too and welcome to stay in touch. And if you didn't, then this comes off as good news. I don't wanna do a big name drop of my favorite people as I will definitely forget heaps and others will then spite me forever or until they forget about me in like a week.
I've forgotten a lot of what I wanted to say but hopefully this has sufficed. Cheers everyone.
