Tag; "ao is it dead''
Like everyone is assuming, of course not .
I've been on this forum since i was about 16., i'm now the ripe age of 21...;ugh..I've only been active for 4 years, i lurked for almost 1. I joined shortly after the whole crash...crashes thing. and witnessed when AO had "Everything Anime Online". and even the EAO site was pretty good.(then theres the EAOX or something like that still floating around.)
Having that much history is sadly a great honor to be apart of., and/or witnessed. It's quite the something when you've managed to find a home on the internet and watch it constantly changing.
If Anime Online ever goes through a "dieing" process, I'll gladly watch it's rebirth.
The inactivity that is mistaken for AO's end is actually just the waiting for the new wave of AO's identity.

'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
'Cause someday I might call you from my heart
those daya were pretty cool though i think
some people still miss that 5000 post thread
we had back then people were so talkative

I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
Isolate and save you from yourself
I arrived here when I was between 16 and 17 years old. I'm now 24.
What made me come?
What made me post the most?
poetry, rpg, the clans v1 and v2, the introduction section, a tad bit the debate section and the cyber lounge.
What makes me stick around?
The good old Veterans from before my time that bring a laugh or interesting subject to read up on. That and the sporadic activities that come and go.
Funniest running gag in my head:
Person I miss the most:
Person who spammed a lot in the past that I remember:
Someone I remember:
Caz-chan (or something similar)

As for posts, if you count the posts I did that were lost from 2004 or so, I should be above the 1000 posts. Though I never have been an active poster, so this forum is by far the only one I passed the 300 posts mark (another one being a role playing forum).
Classes in university start soon, so I might come and write some more later one. Till then, keep on reminiscing everyone and get people to post more (that would include me in the ''need to post more'').
Funniest running gag in my head:
What? What would be so ban worthy of my comment? It wasn't said in an evil way nor was it intended to attack you
No more time to defend myself....bus calls!
Ah...I remember those days fondly. The originial clans, me being being a coleader of the Noods clan, about to become the head, until the whole ordeal with Sinistra and...that one girl who was clearly not set out for leader ship of the group. That whole thing destroyed the whole feeling of why I loved AO in the first place, as of now, its become just about the buissiness aspects, theres rarely any...feeling like in the past.
I mean now, all that I get are ads, ads, ads, and thats all that this place has become. Things like this are the reason for my inactivity as of late, but I do remain for the hopes that one day AO will return from the dregs, to its former glory.
ALL PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THIS MOVEMENT SHOULD UNITE.
I've seen all you here before at the rise and the fall, lets go down and ring the bell at the Levity Ball.
I'm not sure if I fit into the whole family thing but I joined AO around '06. I mean, back then we had so much more to talk about, more people were into what they were talking about.
But now, I don't even post as much anymore. The posts here are so terrible and lacking anything that actually makes you wanna type your opinion. I dunno, there was a time where AO was super-great. Even when I was trying to beat Legend in Curveball (Which I Did!)
I miss that. I miss the great posts. Everyone knowing everyone. blah, what happened people?
