Thank you, Winamp

and thank you, fellow misfits. Through all of the good times and the bad, we've all come back (or never quite left).

Without this community and it's members, I wouldn't be where I am today. I've met a lot of great people through this site and I'm grateful for having them in my life.

And I'm feeling especially sentimental because I've come through the other side of another cycle of depression and this has always been the place that I never felt alone. You guys have been a part of the best times of my life so far and the worst bits.

So, thank you

Thank you ShyShy. I can't claim to be one of the Winamp Forums originals, but I can at least say that my relatively small six and a half years here have been very therapeutic too.

It's a pretty unique forum atmosphere here. I hope it never ends. For better or worse, I'll probably stick around for a lot more years. Please let me know (anyone, not just ShyShy) if anything I post makes the place less welcoming.

Don't forget to live before you die.

It's funny how a little piece of software unites very different people, at least online.

Eh I'll get in on this too.

[circlejerk]
Winamp has been a huge part of my life, mentally and emotionally. The community here as well as skinning helped me define a lot of my values and how I view things to this day.

I remember when I was a whining sniveling little brat here, I had genuine problems but was annoying as fuck. I was confused with life, and things that happen to people almost daily... This is where Missy came in, Missy helped me a lot. Through private messages I was able to talk to someone without fear of rejection or judgement. She helped me deal with a lot of my personal problems. I'd probably not be the mike you know today without her kind words of wisdom.

Not to say that she was the only one who helped me, a great deal of people helped me here. Jones did, without trying. I saw him as a force to challenge and that defeating him would be him actually enjoying a skin that I pushed out. (Which was rare)

Upon discovering GD I met most of you regulars and found even more help, I sometimes sit back in a intense conversation or situation and think what the hell type of wall of text would rockout put up, what would he say about this?

A lot of you llama lovers have helped me in the past, and continue to do so in the present.

I know that I wont ever forget this place, it's more of a home to me than the various places I've lived have been.

So yes, thank you Winamp.

Shy, Everytime I think of Australia, I think of you sweetheart and Jaz as well. You two were a great part of my personality and love for the past 12 years and I enjoy all the memories.
I love you all and hope that life treats you all well

I logged in and haven't done so since Feb 2008. It's amazing to go back through posts created nearly a decade ago and think to yourself "wow have I changed"

I remember seeing you post around all the time back in 2003. When on forums long enough there is that sentimental value that you never really forget about, or how such interactions have carved a part of you during that part of your life. This forum didn't exactly shape me, but there has been others in the past that have. You remember people, whether by their avatar, given they don't change it frequently enough, or just by general posting style. You remember threads, and certain postings that have made you laugh, depressed, angry (arguments or times when certain people rile you up) and think "wow how has this changed me as a person"

How ya been, Chev?

edit: fuck, just saw your post in the other thread

I am so sorry you are going through this. I do know how absolutely frightening it is. I was lucky that I had an awesome doctor and a gifted surgeon, that between the two of them, they saved my vision.

I can only hope that your sight can be saved, the results may not be perfect, but that you can still see.

I do admit that at times, I do get shitty with myself and others, when I come up to a limitation of my vision. But, then the saner part of myself just likes to give me a reality check that i am lucky with what I have.

Just know that I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
