It just truly hit me that im old when it comes to this site. I've been lurking for about 3 days on here and have yet to see anyone with an account past 2005, I think I saw someone with one from 04. That makes me feel like a total old fag! I mean, I remember back when Pico Day first started and I was just a 12 year old who had just discovered this site. I know im not that old now, but its crazy to think about. I honestly feel somewhat out of touch with this site, especially since the redesign. So just for the sake of conversation, any old timers out there...and do any of you new accounts have anything to say?

My original account joined in 2006. Don't worry, we're all old. Just means we've seen more.

I had an old account from 2003, but I was so retarded with it that I requested to have it deleted in 2005 or 2006. I just played games for a while after that.

well I first made my account in 1996 so I guess you could call me and old timer hehe I've seen new users come and go and I've seen a lot of flash in my time heh

it feels weird being on this site for so long you know :) I just wanted to let you guys know that cause Newgrounds is a great time and I'm proud to have spent so much time on this wonderful site and I have to say I know a lot of people and I'm apart of the history here I know all the memes on this site and a lot of other knowledge too cause I have been here for like almost 20 years pretty much :)

very depressing, i remember it making the news, and putting newgrounds in some very bad light, kinda like that other kid, who made that game or video and then went and shot up his school

That kid who shot up his school, I wasn't around for that I believe, but I did read up on it. He was a sick kid, and its a shame he had to bring such negative attention to the site.

His name was Regret / Jeff Weise and he was a dick for doing that but considering his age, he was good at the old flash animations.

I remember Livecorpse well and was kinda BBS buddies with him, I always thought he was a cool guy and was pretty mortified to learn of his death and the circumstances surrounding it, poor guy.

Not much older now. You're still younger compared to most BBS users.

Well, OP, I disregard my sign-up date since I just started frequenting the BBS last year. I have been coming to the site for maybe a decade.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

I made this account in 2006. I am really nostalgic for the site the way it used to be, but at the same time, people just joining the site now will probably look back on this time with fond memories too.
