I remember joining AO and I started to notice people on how large their post was. I become friends with a lot of people that I do miss, but some I do keep in touch with still.
I remember when AO had a lot of wonder artists who posted great fan art. Its amazing how times have changed and it seems that members are just getting younger and younger almost making it hard to really talk about Anime and the artist style.
Ohh that was well over 4 years now. I still don't even know what made me stay, except this being the first forum I ever joined.
