    Thanks for laying it all out for us Kaity! It's been an honor spending some of my time here on the forums with you, you were also a delight to chat with, and the events that you held that I participated in were lovely (Luvdisc Grams <3). I hope you find a good place to settle in and join us at Marriland again, it'd be sad to lose your fun attitude there!

    Well, I have no idea how much I'll be able to shove into this post before it's archived, but here goes.

    I joined back in November of 2007. I was in 7th grade, and a friend from school had joined the forums and invited me to as well (he posted like twice after I joined and never returned, huh). I was a typical young kid on the internet, and considering this was my first forum ever, I posted like it.

    First recorded post here:

    i have had this problem before

    it is the battery inside

    take the cover off of the game

    then pull the battery contacts outwards toward the battery this should make it save



    if this doesnt work buy a new battery for it





    Slix

    Interesting how it was slightly formal yet very unprofessional. XD

    I then posted around and asked people to trade and battle me on Pokémon Diamond, which I had just gotten. I eventually made my way to the G&OR section, which became my home here. I posted all the time, and once 2008/2009 rolled around, I was on Marriland Forums all the time, on the computer and on my iPod touch. Nothing like going on forums without a mobile site back in the day.

    Without saying too much here (ask me if you want to know more sometime!), being on Marriland Forums inspired me to make my own Pokémon website, Poliwager, in 2008. By this point I was apparently much more advanced with my posting abilities, so it translated well to being a new admin. :P Early 2009 Poliwager Forums was created as well. It's crazy to think that some random decision to join here years ago altered my entire "career" as a Pokémon site owner, huh?

    Anyway, I ended up posting in the Chatterbox a ton, and I loved trying to get into the first page of the new CBs as they were posted... Man, those were good times. I met a lot of people back then, most of whom are gone now, sadly, but some are still around and I smile whenever I see them post too. :)

    I was here during the phpBB2 days briefly, and then the site was down for the phpBB3 upgrade... And it was down... And it was down... That upgrade took months. Eventually we moved to Curse, and it was a weird time for me, mainly because I hated the design initially of the forums after the Curse move. I opted to only come online occasionally, whenever I really felt like it. I still called this place home, though, since it has been here for me for all these years. Moving to Azurilland was strange too, for the same reasons. It felt weird changing names, though the reasons made sense of course.

    I'm excited to see what comes for our futures together as a community. I love you all. :)


    Here are some random screenshots I have saved from the old days.

    2010, me reaching 10,000 posts. Man, getting those rank bars filled up was like feeding an addiction! They were so cool to see fill up, and it was interesting to see people looked up to because they had a fuller rank than you.

    Wow, what a heap of news.

    I've been on Marriland/Azurilland Forums for almost 11 years now(!), and have been through 4 transitions already, this being the 5th. I definitely want to thank Curse for their time with us, and thank Marriland for this wonderful offer to keep this community alive. It's been amazing to see this place grow from the phpBB2 days where I started, as a young forum-noob. :P

    I guess I can't speak for everyone here considierng I sporadically pop in and out here, whereas a lot of members post daily or weekly, but I think all of the upsides to going with Devin's offer are too good to pass up; a name people recognize already, a very open offer for the staff to administer and customize as they please, and ties back to the original community name we had years ago. Coming from a website admin myself, I really think all of these are important things, especially when you consider advertising and edit-ability. It will be sad to lose all the backlinks to previous posts from users, but alas, sometimes you have to start fresh. :)

    Whatever happens, I'm sure the community will be grateful and helpful in moving forward.
