Who's Left? -- I Miss This Place

Postby Craig » Mon Dec 19, 2016 6:25 pm

There comes a time every few months when I find myself growing incredibly nostalgic and returning to PWEB. Only when I return I grow even more sad and nostalgic, because it seems like everyone I knew and talked to have disappeared. So, here I am, on a rainy NW afternoon wondering who's left? Who still lurks on these boards?

Tell me who you are and when you first joined--I'll go first.

My name is Craig (have also gone by Alai) and I first joined PWEB around 1999 when Jake Lloyd was still talked about as playing Ender in the never-going-to-get-made Ender's Game adaptation. These boards will be forever special to me, because as a teenager struggling to figure out who he was, I finally found a place (and a community) that let me be me. We spent hundreds of hours talking about and analyzing the books in the Enderverse. You guided me through difficult times, listened to my fears and ambitions, and challenged me in ways I'd never been challenged.

I look forward to seeing some old friends and meeting new ones. :D

Hey there! This is Naomi, I've been here since two days after the grand opening, which was June 29, 2000. So, you may be off by a year :)

Anyway, I still lurk but don't post much.

I'm still around. More or less.

My name is Jason, and I've been here since... 2003, I think?

Naomi! Haha, yeah, I couldn't quite remember when the forum started, but I was there at the beginning too. Actually found the Fresco Pictures forum before the Philoticweb. :-) Glad to see you're still around--definitely a friendly face.

Noodle! Another friendly face. The fall of 2000... Lol. What generation of PWEB are we even on, anyway?

Glad to see everyone! Who else is out there? Surely there's more...

Hi there Terri here :) joined in 2011. I still keep an eye out for anyone around as much as I can. Still friends with Tiny and I try to keep him updated as well.

I was one of the early members of Pweb and was very active here back in the day.

I've been an off-again, on-again lurker in recent years, though. Especially since this place has become so inactive.

Really what we need is to have OSC to get the book out that combines Ender and Bean's story archs back together. That way people have a place to come looking for more who like what we like.

Seriously I"m waiting on that book, I need my Ender's and Bean's story fix!! :stoned:

I still log in and read a few times a month, but haven't posted anything original in a while.

I first joined Pweb back in September of 2000 with the handle Valentine Wiggin, and then after the first crash came back as Young Val and have kept that handle ever since.
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

I generally pop in back here at the end of each school year. Of course, I've graduated now. And had several tests to take (The Bar and the MPRE) right after this last one, so I guess I'm popping in at the beginning of an imaginary school semester.

Usually I post, then I do a long bit of lurking to see how people are, and then I disappear back into the night. Well, void. The void of the internet. Maybe I'll stick around longer as I wait for Bar results/my professional career to start.

When do you get your results?

I'd say good luck, but what's done is done at this point. Whatever similar sentiments are appropriate should be inserted here.

I joined this site in 2004/2005 or so. I pop in every once in a while but haven't posted anything. I felt I should now.

I got married when I was still active on this site. That was 12 years ago. Damn.

I popped in in 2012 to announce I had a daughter. I've got three now.

I love this place. I never felt like I really fit in entirely, but I love this place.

Congrats on your family. It's great to see you pop in to say hello. :)
