Ohh hey I remember you, at least your name! You're talking about The Judge. I mainly remember that because I "fell in love" with three people here, and he was one of them haha!! Being a young teen on an internet forum is mind boggling and crazy. Definitely taught me a few lessons hahaha gladly, no one was a serial killer, not that I ever really found out about ;) But I met Dexter, Soul Calibur & Skitzo Control in person. Oh and um, Lord of Spam! In retrospect, most of that was pretty dang risky on my part, and I'm gonna do my best to not let me daughter go down the same path. But all that matters is, oh oh video game reference - still alive. :)

The Judge! Thank you!

I totally grew up with a 100% full on hard on mancrush on Vampiro. I really liked some others here but Vamp was my boo. I feel bad for Dexter because each time I'm playing a game he is (Halo, Division, etc...) he has the worst timing on inviting me to a party when I'm already in one with a bunch of family and whatnot.

Hahahaha Vampiro was cool. Very witty, I remember. Aw, don't feel bad for Dexter! He's got about a trillion friends. Then again, I don't play online games, so I miss out on that comaraderie. But my mate does, though most of his friends are local. I told him about my VGC days and how most of my first boyfriends actually came from here and he was blown away that I wasn't somehow murdered hahaha.

Vampiro was the HUGEST ***** of all time. Only person I didn't get along with on the site. No surprise to see that he faked his entire persona online, and was pretending to be someone else the entire time. No respect for that dude at all.

Oh reeeaallyyy?? Huh. Somehow that doesn't really surprise me... probably because a couple people I met from here turned out to be quite different from what they claimed to be on here ;) crazy internets. He never seemed to like me, but I figured it was because I was a girl lol. I got along best with you, Linko_16, and Trigger. Very thankful to still have her as a friend on facebook. Do you have one, Kamek? I do wish the boards would spark back to life again. Though it was sort of the source of where all the bad **** started in my life.. haha.. this place shaped me into the strong person I am today. It would be pretty cool to have most of the regulars back, posting here as if it was as popular as back then. Dang social media and convenience killing all other things that used to be so important in our lives.

I have the advantage of not having met ANY of you in real life. Pretty much everyone here remains pretty cool to me. Your online personas are all I know.

I remember almost meeting Dexter. We were both living in Hawaii for some time, and one night when I was in Honolulu, we were planning on meeting up. So there I was all ready to party down in Waikiki, and he flaked out at the last minute. Something about his friends demanding his attention, was his excuse. I'm the complete opposite of a friendhoarder, but I figured our extreme social differences would make meeting someone like that interesting. But instead of having the stones to meet me face to face over a beer or five, he had to go ahead and be a loser.

I did meet Corrupt, of course, and Admiral Anthrax and kyubi. I think that's it.

Raptor, I'm really surprised he didn't follow through to meet you! When we were together, that whole what, two weeks he stayed with me in my apartment - he seemed so very social. Walked with me everywhere, talked to nearly EVERY stranger, and I do remember him being actually gentlemanly with staying on his side to the road and gripping my hand every time a truck passed by.. not sure if that was more his fear of being closer to the truck or just being protective. But, when I broke up with him (after realizing I fell for a false persona and with him encouraging my bad habits of not eating to lose weight, otherwise known as anorexia I do believe!) he called my sister (not sure how he got her number) and talked to her for three hours - she claimed. Apparently, that conversation turned my family against me - he is a very manipulative, very charming person, and he won over my mom. After that, my family thought I was the most terrible person for kicking him to the curb.. much family drama ensued, but we're all in a good place now. Made us closer in the long run (thanks Timothy!) - but the oddest thing about it all, to me, was that he contacted me something like 3 years later, but ODDEST of all, he contacted my SISTER again two years after that! Uhh.. dude. Live your life and get out of the past, and really, don't randomly message people years later. It's creepy.


Anyway, I'm sorry he didn't visit you. I wonder if he really lived in Hawaii. That would explain the flaking out :/ hm. Other than all the other crap, he was a pretty entertaining guy, and pretended to be SO DUMB when he obviously wasn't haha he pretended not to know how to play Solitaire. C'mooon lol.

I really hope that bit about Dexter encouraging anorexia isn't true. If it is, that makes me really sad.

Raptor, long time no see! PM me your number or personal email if you get the chance. I'd hate for the site to get hacked one final time, and lose track of people I've known for almost 18 years now.

Well, in his defense, I definitely was already in that mindset. After high school - and I'd always been overweight - I tried to exercise and eat better, but just did not grasp the concept of how to effectively eat correctly, in the right amount and couple that with a good amount of exercise. Plus I was lazy, and a young girl who wanted to finally be considered "sexy." So I just ate very little and exercised. I was far down that road by the time Dexter came along. But when he did (and I think it was primarily his whole making-fashion thing, he was very into anime and so I presume preferred very thin girls/people) - he and I would sort of have daily eating competitions. As in, who could eat the least throughout the day. He wasn't too thin, but then again, I was technically a normal weight at the time because I'm 5'2 and was down to 125 when I met him - which, I had been 150 and dropped 25 pounds in a little over a month. You don't have to be a stick to be anorexic, so he may have been at the same level. I hope he doesn't do it anymore, lord knows I stopped! I did P90X and made my one and only youtube video when I became a Beachbody coach, then a couple years later I had a baby and whittled my way back to being healthy. Fortunately, bad habits died pretty quickly there.

Jesus christ. Here I was so long ago thinking we were all just being our actual selves. The internet is a weird place.

Congrats on kicking the bad habits, though.

I'd say Jessie actually is an insane cracko wackoist. It's a double play. He flaunts his insanity to make us think it's just a persona so he can get away with actually being crazy because none of us believe it.

Thanks, Sapphire Rose. Society, man. Bleh. Dang Jesse, I'm glad it didn't burst, or at least that you're okay. My cousin literally just had appendix surgery a few days ago and he was in such intense pain. Kudos, dude. The only thing that ever failed on me was my gallbladder. Worst pain of my life! 3 weeks after I had my child. Again... bleh.

Wrong time to hall a gallbladder fail. When your child gets older make sure you properly place the blame on them. You know, just so they feel the trauma, too.

Oh, I will certainly do that. I would very much like to get back in touch with you and several others. I can sincerely say I'm very glad to see that you're still around.

I came into VG chat a good while back around 2009ish I usually was around the pokemon chat idk if anyone remembers me on there the user I am using on this forum is the same one I used back then, I remember STARS was around pokemon, tails and piplup were around when I used to visit here regularly idk anymore though. I decided to come and see how everyone was doing on that chat turns out its dead and now I am at the forums trying to find out the same thing tbh. Miss these days now that I am a college student I rarely get to go and just play mons with people all day like I used :(

Yo!

D.J Cat here.

I first found this site way back in the day, would have been early 2001, we had just gotten the int is, way before it was mainstream and lame like it is now.

Was looking for anything N64 related, still love that console, still play it.
N64 Forever!
A forum I found through this website.
Having it's 10 year anniversary this year .Fantastic community.

Jesse, you champion!
A wacko, sure, you made me a mod at 13/14, clearly having faith in the youth, I remember one of the old mates was a mod of General Discussion at age 10/11, oh man!

I feel as a massive N64 fan I covered the N64.section well and as a hyperactive annoyingly positive kid I did the Introduction section as well as possible for those few years.

Shout outs to the few people I connected with on AOL IM and whatever else during the years.

Speedfreak, Linkman come to mind of the top of the head.
I'm glad this place still exists in some form.
I'm not a fan of social media and its ggreat to read peoplse thoughts and hear how they are going.

See ya'all around
Might get on MiiMoto...even if it means I have to make a Twitter to use it...grr.
Still, can make one purely to make terrible sports puns....
Its The Mane Event...
