this will probably be the last time i'm posting as Scrafty. Plus, this will be my final chance to post this thread.
I've joined the forums around June 26th, 2012 and I wanted to stay because I thought it would be cool to claim a Pokémon name (I've did it before on a previous forum before it shut down). However, it really was the community who made this place feel like a second home and made me feel like I was part of the family too. During my pre-Curse time, I mostly posted in Games and Other Randomness before I've discovered forums such as spriting and clubs. So then, I've became a member the Space Time Rift and Endless Creative Club as well as participated in spriting contests as a novice. Additionally, I sometimes posted in Competitive Battling to help others with teams. Overall, I was just enjoying my time on the forums during my 2nd year of University.
After the shift to Curse, I wanted to become a forum Moderator because I had a drive to help others and I just wanted to know what it was like; I've never been one before. I started filing reports as well as guiding users and when June rolled around, I've received the PM asking me if I wanted to be one. I accepted and got promoted June 25th, 2013. It took me some time to get used to modding but after a while I got the hang of it. I also really liked how friendly and supporting the staff were during my time there. My favourite memories as staff were definitely some of the April Fools Day jokes we've made, especially Mod Squad v2 and the Digimon forums. I've contributed my ideas towards making the forums a better place and hosted some events as a moderator, namely Pokémon Hurt n Heal, Monthly Spriting Contests with shhmew, Monthly Team Builders, and a few competitive tournaments. After almost 4 years of service, I've stepped down due to my waning interest in moderating as well as my real life becoming busy.
Despite no longer moderating, I still wanted to contribute to the community by posting often as well as finishing HnH. After receiving Emeritus, I've participated in staff hosted events like Azurilland Prom and Smash Camp. I've had a lot of fun with them, especially with Smash Camp.
This forum has definitely helped me to be a better person and an artist. As one chapter closes, another one will begin anew and I will for sure be active on the new Marriland forum. Thank you for reading!
