@Susanowoo suggested that we create an OLD User Introduction thread, for old accounts that have never introduced themselves or have just returned to NG after years of absence. I've seen a good number of returning visitors in recent years so this sounds like a fun idea.


If you're an old user who has been lurking, this thread is your opportunity to let yourself be known!

Hello, my name is Little-Rena, but I am not so little anymore, as I grew up, and got old, but changing my name would mean a massive loss of history, and that would be sad. I post a lot of cringe on the forums, and all of the various portals on Newgrounds, I have plenty of submissions that you could check out, but might regret it.


I never used to be a forum regular, mostly because I was prone to getting banned back in the day for shitty posts, but now, I can get away with it!


My proudest achievement on Newgrounds is becoming an Icon Mod, the most important type of Moderator on this website! It can be quite fun to make icons, and look at some submissions I never would have come across before, other times, it can be hard, because the submissions are cringe, there are also things I can't unsee, like the time I came across a granny porn animation submission that needed an icon.


Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

Hey, I'm Seth, that guy who changes his name and profile pic a lot. I first joined as @constromlie years ago to learn to make music and also vote on submissions. I never really introduced myself. I kinda just barged in on the General forum last year and started shitpoasting. I also started spelling "poast," and not long after that, others picked it up. Some people get mad at me for this, but I don't care, as it's all in good-spirited stupid fun.

Anyway, I'm a pretty chill guy for the most part, and if you need to chat about some shit that's bothering you, hit me up.

Hi, I'm GoryBlizzard.


I made my account here on November 21, 2003 at the age of 13 and haven't really left. Many people you will see identifying themselves as "old" are actually newer than me. That's how jaw-droppingly old I am.


I used to mod the older chat, you used to be able to see me frequently on PalTalk (although I wouldn't say I felt close to anyone), developed a stronger camaraderie with some other people in the old Stickam chat, hosted a few NYC NG meets, one co-hosted with @Luis in 2012, and who knows, I wouldn't rule out a future meet via Zoom later this year, almost or over 10 1/2 years since my real life one.


People a long time ago have always associated me with my love of shit, particularly from attractive females. There are a few people here that will see the word "shit" in a thread title or original post and then tag me because they instantly think of me. I'm used to it. Shit has played a big role in my sex life and scat and efro porn really gets me going when my girlfriend is not around. She is into shit too; guy shit. That's why we're so perfect for each other. I've loved shit since since I was 3 years old.


I also have epilepsy and take medication for it. At the time of this post, 3 different meds. I saw a neurosurgeon on December 10, 2019 to have a VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulator) installed in my chest wall. It's basically a pacemaker for the brain and works to stop or suppress seizures by way of my left vagus nerve. It also comes with a magnet that can be swiped over it to enhance its electrical output whenever I feel like the use of it is justified. The regular, non-magnetic setting is at 0.75 mA for me and can be manipulated every time I visit my neurologist. Every paper check I have says "Cure Epilepsy" on it and this is an area where I am constantly trying to stay on top of, as far as new research goes.


One particularly bad seizure I had on February 28, 2015 resulted in dislocating my right shoulder and I've needed surgery ever since then. But life happened and so did delay after delay, but it looks like that it is likely to happen on the 24th in just 9 days. I'll post updates in this thread I made back in 2010 or possibly make a new one. The plan is to have an open Latarjet procedure done with two orthopedic surgeons working collaboratively. I'm waiting for the surgical coordinator to tell me when the fresh osteochondral allograft has arrived and if my primary care physician has signed off on my most recent blood work done yesterday.


My favorite music genre is metal. I've been to a fuck ton of shows and met some of the finest musicians. Been part of Metal Hell since January 12, 2005. My BBS sig is so old that I've had it since October 2, 2004, only changing it to fit each redesign ever since then. I encourage more metal lovers here to be more active in that thread and possibly make their own to upload to the Audio Portal.

Hey its Weeeeegra!~ Its Wegra


So I've been on this site for nearly 20 years since I joined in 2003 under @Wegra2 after my friend gave me his account that he wasnt using. And I got hooked on the whole reviewing thing since day 1. Anyway I pretty much have been doing all that Newgrounds has to offer. Reviwing, posts, contributing art, movies, music and even games. And I plan to stay here to the very end.


See you around!

See y'all at bingo!


I joined this website after my older cousin sent me a link to a porn game over MSN messenger, which in retrospect is a little weird.


I went by kickme123 originally, and then TheMaster, and now I have another username I don't like and would probably change to HobbsLane to match what I use everywhere else if I didn't also not really like that one either.


I haven't watched a video or played a game on here in probably a full decade now but force of habit will have me checking these forums until they, or I, die, whichever comes first.

hi i'm urichov and i don't remember introducing myself in the other thread probably because by the time i decided to start making use of the forums my account was seven years old. not nearly as old as most folks in this thread but still. i've distinguished myself by recording a dramatic reading of a forum post about ugly nipples and by doing an awful job organising a collab for our moderator fro. i also draw very slowly with a mouse.

I'm RydiaLockheart, and I joined NG on November 21, 2002, shortly before I left for Thanksgiving break during my freshman year of college when I was 19.


I cut my teeth here with the Politics Crew back when that was still a thing. I hung around forums, played games and watched movies. There was about a year or so I didn't go to the forums and I don't really know why.


Ever since I have been here, I have gotten my Bachelor's and two Master's degrees, lived in Ohio for a year when I had a job there, got laid off from that job, gotten my current job, moved to Pittsburgh, got married, bought a house, and adopted a dog.


I've aged 20 years throughout that time, but I'm still the same sarcastic bitch I always was, although my political views have done a complete 180 since college. I guess that's what happens when you leave the university hugbox and live in the real world.

Response to Old User Re-Introduction Thread 2020-08-15 23:38:25


I'm whatever my name is to the side of this post... probably something really stupid and embarrassing. I've been visiting NG on and off ever since my late younger brother introduced me to How Tupac Was Murdered.. In 2009, I finally made an account because I wanted the medals from the Street Fighter Collab. (It's A-rated, so don't watch it if you're not an adult... heh.) I, then, obsessed over WoW until 2013, forgot my password, got tired of MMOs, and decided to make this account, instead of resetting the other one with my old email.


I'm an optimistic pessimist who likes dogs, fast (upbeat) music, and YTPMVs. I consider myself to be one of the least vulgar (i.e. most forgettable) shitposters of this BBS and an overall talentless fuck with nothing of value to share on any of the portals.


Please, don't send me friend requests without PMing me first. Those always feel so awkward to receive.

Sounds like fun. I drop by most Clock Days but still am mostly M.I.A. so I think this qualifies... ;D


Hi, I'm gfoxcook. I've been coming to Newgrounds since some time in 1999. Made an account in early February 2000, but mostly just watched an occasional video or played an occasional game in the portal the first few years.


Wasn't until late 2002 and early 2003 when I started actually reading the forums, posting, starting to notice these things called blams and saves... and experience points, even.


Anyway, I was a heavy user from 2003 to 2005, I'd say. For a time, I moderated some reviews, forum posts, etc, then started to drift away from the site (aside from on Clock Day, as I said) slowly but surely. It happens to the best of us, but...

I am EinMeister, and even if I made my account in 2020 I have started to use this site since 2009 or 2010. Flash games made a huge part of my childhood and I decided return to the site recently. I like creating content of any kind so hanging around other people that do the same thing is pretty cool.


I'm BigBeefyBlue, a guy who found newgrounds back when he got his first computer as a wee baby boy back in the early 2000s. I've been on this site for well over a decade now and decided to make an account in 2010 to make stupid reviews on games and movies I liked.


Newgrounds has been my home on the internet for most of the time I've had it and has got me through school, college and now adulthood.


Heres to many more years of dick jokes, boobies and telling Tom Fulp he's a real handsome fella.

I think i never introduced myself as well... well, i met Newgrounds around 2007 i guess. I played Pico Sim Date on a brazilian flash website that stole flash games from here, heh, then i ended up visiting and ended up enjoying it, so i stayed. I created an account back then and i spent some time in the forums (learning english and saying cringy things as any 14 years old would). I guess i was a regular user up to 2010 or something. Then i kinda went in and out, with a lot of stuff happening in my life. This year i decided to try and make some money with hentai, so i came back strong with a new account and i'm very glad about where this is going! I'm making a game that should be launched in the next few months and my expectations for it are very big!

Howdy,


I've been lurking the BBS since 2003. I stumbled on NG in the PC lab in 8th grade when taking a CAD design class. The older kids were playing games and videos on NG when the teacher wasn't paying attention so I started playing rooftop skater a bunch.


I found the BBS when I my parents got a PC capable of loading the NG front page over christmas 2002. Over winter break just before I went back to school I created an account and started frequenting the forums every night. Newgrounds has been a part of my daily routine ever since. I've been a review and BBS mod since 2008. I've been chat mod for a while too. I've been a supporter for 5 years. I have a bunch of merch from the old NG store and even a long sleeve logo shirt from the very first cafepress store from way way back. I have missed more than 10 years worth of daily deposits despite being here literally every day for 17 years. I once had 24k+ BBS posts but it's been going down for a while with some large threads and prolific users being deleted from when I was more active. I mostly lurk these days.


I've been to 3 Montreal Meetups, a Mod meetup and 2 Pico Days. I've met some long time NG friends IRL for beer, skiing, overnight visits and on vacations. I first met newgrounders in meatspace when I skipped out from a family vacation in 2004 when I was only 16 and took a grayhound bus 3 hours away to Vancouver BC.


IRL I've graduated highschool and went to college and got married (Tom gave me a shoutout).


Since 2003: I have had 2 bicycles and 2 skateboards. I have driven 9 different cars and 2 motorcycles. I've had 9 cats (5 currently), 1 dog, 1 snake, 3 horses (2 currently) and a handful of chickens and guinea fowl. Lived in 5 apartments, bought 2 houses and lived in 4 different states. I've had 11 different jobs.


I have no artistic abilities. I'm just a fan of the games, toons art and music here. I used to write cringey stuff in highschool but that's thankfully buried with my old livejournal and maybe a few pages of the Late Night Loung in C&C.

im curious what it was also.


None


Hi I'm Ryan and I have bad taste in things but I think I'm unique enough that I must add something to the forum with my posts. Also I like music a lot and am trying to listen to a whole list of 220 albums that I gathered and it's intimidating. Also also I have red hair.


Writing about myself is a lot of work and I don't feel like it right now tbh. Can I make a second post later?
