Well its not exactly a news but youve discovered Newgrounds. But when did you discover it at first, and how? For me it mustve been 12 yrs ago, but I never got an account until I was 13. This is just an alt. or more like my current account, as I lost the password for my older one I started out as an animator, then photoshopper, then went on as a drawer, then game maker, then music producer etc. etc. so Ive been bouncing around like a basket ball really.

What about you?

I first came here in either 2000, or 2001.

All I did was pretty much troll and spam the BBS. You could actually do that back then.

Eventually I did get banned, and I came back years later.

so wait... if the original account was an 03, your 23 now... that makes sense
but you discovered the site 12 years ago.. making you 14?

The year was 1999, or maybe it was 2000. My uncle found the site first, when I use to go visit he would show me some funny animations. He also got me a copy of Flash 4 and I really got into NG when I started submiting animations.

I have some fond memories of 2001 Newgrounds.

That was when the Clock Crew was in full swing.

Wait, so you were 13 when you made an account. I can see you made the account in 2011. This should put you at 15 now. But it took you 12 years to make the account... so you discovered this website as an infant?

I think I found out about Newgrounds from some Flash game sites. I lurked for a few months before I registered. I remember seeing the Kevin Bacon April Fools background in 2010.

I first discovered NG in 1999 when my high school classmates were playing Assassin games the computer lab.

I sorta lost interest in the year 2000 and did not return until I got bored of porn in late 2002 - That's also the year I signed up for my account.

I don't know how I found the site, but it was back in 2003. I signed up just before the big database failure at the end of the year though, the account lost in the process, so thus the year 2004 is irreversibly printed on my profile page. Back then it was an awesome place, and still is, though maybe not as awesome as it was back then.. but needless to say I'm stuck here for all eternity.

Good times.

Friends showed me the site around 2003, after lurking, I signed up and got hooked.

First came here in 2002, played Crazy Shuttle; fell in love. Didn't bother to make an account until some years later. Didn't find out about the forums until some years later

I found Newgrounds in late 2006 when I was 13. Kept coming here til a little before the previous redesign and just....left.

so I think earlyish 2007

Didn't find Newgrounds again til early 2010 and started coming here a bit more than before, and then decided to make an account.

I used to come to newgrounds back in 2003 because my friends and I loved flash animations. I think the other site I used to visit was flashplayer.com, which turned into ugoflash or something a little later on. Anyways back in 2003 I would have been only 8/9 years old so I never really thought to make an account. For a long while I stopped coming to newgrounds but found my way back around 2010. Didn't start using forums however till like last Christmas.

Probably around 1999/2000.

But never thought about actually joining the site because I wasn't good with .GIF animations at the time. Then I started to get better with them and was able to get Macromedia Flash. By then I was more interested in SFDT/StickSlaughter/StickSuicide. Didn't come here till later.

My friend showed me, he didn't even have an account.

I occasionally played games every once in a while, finally made an account out of boredom (hence the shitty username) and then started getting on the BBS about a year later.

If I had a nickel for every time someone said they made an ACC years ago. I'd probably be rich. I suspect people do it because their embarrassed by their past behavior, must suck being ashamed of yourself.

I've been here forever.

I was 13, almost 2 years ago. I was at a friend's house with a group of other guys and we were searching for Mario & Peach sex parodies on Google when we came across this flash.

I revisited the flash half a year later and made this account.

Who cares about signup date?

I actually first saw you after I had created a song called Dark Matter. Yeah, just a few days, liek 2-4 days, then I started visiting the forums again and baowm, DARK MATTER IS HERE. I almost pooped myself cause it was such a weird coincidense. I thought my song had incarnated itself here on the BBS.
