What I want to know in this thread is, what is the synopsis of your time on Newgrounds? I bet that each of you has your own interesting story to tell. Don't be embarassed to tell about the dumbass things you did when you were new, it happened to everybody! (except maybe SpeedoSausage) Here is my story:
I was introduced to NG by my friend Brian, many years ago. He showed me the hilarious Tails and his GBA series. I was intrigued by the website, but could not access it at my own home, because my parents didn't think it was appropriate for me (they were probably right). It wasn't until a few years later when I got my own computer and decided to see if the site was still active. Turns out it was, and I made an account. That's where things got strange.
When I first came on this website, I pretended I was an elf IRL.
I don't even know what the fuck I was thinking. However, this was mostly in blog posts, not so much on the BBS.
Then, after being trolled for a while because of this, something happened. I discovered how many idiots there were on Newgrounds, and joined forces with the trolls who had previously bugged me. And over time, I transformed from the very definition of a newfag, into a worldly-wise destroyer of idiocy.
The trolls have mostly all left NG at this point, and I now realize that what I was doing was going a bit too far. So I softened a bit, and that's where I am today. I still have little tolerance for poor spelling and grammar, as well as young users with Sonic or Yoshi for their images.
That's my NG story. What is yours?
