Well technically it's not October 14 yet, but just wanted to get in a bit earlier. :ph34r:

 

So anyway I joined this great forum on October 14 2007. Wow hasn't the last 10 years gone quick? I still remember it like it was yesterday and just like I did for my 5th anniversary in 2012 here is the very post I made.

 

QUOTE (ThePatriotsGun @ Oct 13 2007, 02:25) It's a great game isn't it. It's funny how it only came out a few years ago and yet it feels so nostalgic.

How true is that.

That's why I love it, because the 80s theme hits you right in the face.

 

 

There's so much I want to say, but I'll try and keep it as short and sweet as possible. I don't think I can do everyone justice who I consider to be friends and/or have high respect for. There's just too many people to list. I have been blessed the last 10 years to meet some wonderful people who I've gone onto becoming close friends with on here, Facebook, XBL, PSN etc.

 

It might be a bit of a strange thing to say since I've never actually met anyone face to face, but honestly I think I've made more friends on here over the last decade than I have in person.

 

GTAF is really like my second home now. In saying that aside from all the wonderful members who I've come across I would really just like to thank the staff for the opportunity they gave me back in 2011 when I was recruited as a GTA V forum ledby.

 

I've never been approached on any forum I've been apart of to join the staff so when the opportunity arose I took it with both hands. Despite some ups and downs I've had leaving and rejoining the staff due to some personal issues I went through 3 years ago I've always tried to be helpful wherever I can. I hope I've made peoples' experiences enjoyable.

 

I just can't thank the staff enough.

 

Now all the mushy stuff is out the way lets party like it's 2007 when GTA IV was on the horizon.

Congratulations, MiamiViceCity Algonquin Assassin!

Don't know why I left this here. I just like this video (and the song (kinda)).

10 years. Wow. Imagine, you could have a kid riding a bike by now. Name him GTAForums. Tell him about the birds and the bees Grove Street and the Ballas.

Congrats on keeping the population of Earth lower. Unless you do have a kid then my whole post makes no sense.

lmao they used you so they won't gave to deal with that crap themselves.

Just kidding! Congrats! You've proven yourself to be one of the most important member of this whole community. I have a lot of respect for your passion with GTAIV, you're like the biggest IV fan on earth. I remember you from the 2010-12ish era when I was active on my old account.

Niko Bellic loves you.

You old-timers are proof that once you make an account here, you are here forever. There's no leaving. You'll always come back cause GTAForums has your soul that you willingly gave to them when you filled out the signup form. Still, congrats on being here for as long as you have. You still seem relatively sane but I hope to see you here in another 10yrs though.
