10 Years at GTAF

Recommended Posts

I've been here an entire decade.

 

RhMo7i3.png


Ten whole years on this account today.

That is almost half of my entire life so far. I remember browsing this place as a guest back in 2004/5 thinking it was some dead forum that nobody posted in.

 

I had only recently got the internet, and I was completely fresh into the world of game modding, and GTA felt like the best thing to tinker with, so I joined in 2006 to check out mods and learn to make my own.

I attempted 3 total conversion mods that I never finished, (GTA New New York) (PedRising) (Bullworth Academy) and made a bunch of terrible random mods that were never very good. :p

Over the decade I dabbled in modding until around when GTA IV came out, where I sort of just gave up on that scene, and moved on to modding games nobody else was interested in messing with instead.

Now I just spend all my time in Gen and Gaming chat, just faffing about. I still play the new releases of GTA, at least once, then just set it aside till the next one.

When I joined this forum, I was only 15, living with my parents and in the school system.
Today I live in my own place and make money through artwork and YouTube adrev.

I've visited this forum pretty much every single day for that 10 years, watching it change as I did.
I know there are plenty more people that have been here longer than that tho. :p

 

In closing,
how has your life changed in the numerous years you've been active here?
What kept you here this long?

Congratulations.

 

I've always told myself that I need to leave this place before I become one of those old creeps who spends a decade on GTAF, but it sure as f*ck is creeping up on me too.

How my life has changed in the last 10 years? I don't really know if they were good or bad changes, i never do.

 

What kept me here? i would like to say i became fond of some people here but truth is i don't have sh*t to do other than browsing here.

Damn, congrats on the decade milestone OP. The only account I have that is like a decade old is on another forum and I don't even remember my password/email.

Congratulations.

I've always thought the same thing to and even though I've recently spent alot of time away from here I did come back. Why? I dont know, I guess I like torturing myself.

 

Anyway congrats on 10 years here Freakorama :^:

Congratulations, newbie!

 

I've joined here when I was 14-15 as well, You should go back to some of your first posts and see how awful you were when you were younger, it's fun.

 

Apart from that not much has changed except I do everything at a higher level now, study at a higher level, think at a higher level and most importantly, game at a higher level.

 

I would've posted some Ellie, but I don't think that'll be appreciated.

Lol it is kind of a feat, I'd been banned about 3 times and managed not to get a perma ban.

Well no, it's not. There are people that have been here longer and haven't been banned. But congrats anyway, I guess.

Freakoo mate, congrats.

So I guess only Tank can celebrate a milestone then.

Nah, that's not what I meant at all. I just don't get post milestones and anniversaries. And yes, I made one once, itself a passive aggressive response to milestone threads.

 

The way I see it, it's people celebrating their ability to use a website. Well done! I'm going to celebrate each time I do a hundred sh*ts. Or breathe a hundred breaths. Because everything is a milestone that should be noted and recorded for all to see.

 

98... 99... 100... ONE HUNDRED BREATHS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
