    posted a message on a turtle's journey


    a turtle's journey

    Way back in June of 2011, I stumbled on a Pokemon forum while looking for information about Pokemon Black and White. Intrigued, I signed up for the website and started posting in the trading forums. Eventually I found my way into some clubs, where I made a handful of threads and was introduced to spriting. I was an annoying little 12 year old, and ended up causing some minor drama in a few clubs, hahah. I ended up ditching my original account in favor of a new one, trying to make a fresh start.

    During my early times on the forums, I somehow got myself involved as a co-leader for the Jurassic Clan, a club run by jfjdawg14. This is one of the most nostalgic parts of Marriland/Azurilland for me. Looking back, it was all carefree and I had a ton of fun just messaging other people. All things come to and end though, and my activity drooped off. My access to the site was limited at home so I usually got online at school, so during summer break I wasn't around much. Some extenuating circumstances in my life also led to me disappearing for a lot of 2014.

    I came back to the site in 2015, from where I ended up getting a lot more involved in the community. I got involved in revamping the Adopt-a-Newbie program, and overall I was a lot more mature. During the summer of 2016, I applied to become a moderator when the staff team was preparing for the launch of Pokemon Sun and Moon. I was offered the position, but I just barely made the cut. Excited and prepared to show that I was capable, I started my work as a Sectional Moderator for the trading forums.

    I didn't really have a focus in trading before my promotion, but I started working as soon as I could. Remaking rules, setting up announcements, I got to know the subforums and got used to my duties. As time went on, I was eventually promoted to a Global Moderator when the Sectional Moderator position was removed in 2017.

    In the fall of 2017, I ended up getting more involved with the community off-site on Skype, and eventually Discord. I came out as gay to the online community, and ended up being able to express myself how I want. After branching out, I found myself among people who I was closer to than I had been with any past forum friends. This is where I think I started to change and grow the most. In the beginning of 2018, a thread was posted talking about the state of the staff team, and lots of changes were happening. I started to be more self aware and grew up in a sense.

    The past year or so has been an adventure, dealing with family issues while back home during the summer and working as an RA during the school months... I would't change it for anything though. My struggles, my tears, my happy moments, they've all made me who I am today. With my recent promotion to administrator I feel confident but terrified, proud but exposed... I'm still sure of one thing, though: I'm going to give it my all. This site, this community- it's worth it to me.

    The more I think about it, the more I realize that the connections and friends I've made are more important than anything else I've gained from this site. Threads, badges, positions, they're all cool and nice but I find great comfort in knowing that no matter what happens I'll still have my friends. They'll always be there for me, and that means so much. So... thanks, you guys.

    To everyone who's put time into this site, and anyone who's taken time to listen or reach out to me... Thank you. This might just be a Pokemon site, but it's our Pokemon site.

    as far as new versions go, we've been adding a new version to all the threads we've remade already so the chatterbox will probably move to version 54 as well

    Alright bet

    I'll be remembered this way forever nanihmm
    Welp, I should have looked a bit closer- since it hasn't been a year you won't be able to change your name on this site (which you mentioned but I didn't read close enough, my bad). If you want to be a meme you'll need to wait until the new site is opened wink

    It's been under a year but given the state of the forums that gives me an idea

    Current Username: Rosen
    Desired Username: Do It You Wont

    nanihmm

    If y'all actually do it I might ask to get it reverted after a day or two oops
    If you really want I'll do this, but it won't be able to be reverted:

    ✧ You're stuck with this name for at least a year, so make sure it's something you really want! We encourage you to think it over very carefully, because we will not make any exceptions.
    Otherwise, please don't use this thread for memes or jokes. It's meant to be used for actual name change requests.
