what brings you here?

my questions to you:

how did you get here in the first place?
what forums do you use here? *
and for mods, when did you get modded?

* to clear this up, i mean the different forums on the main forums.winamp.com page.

I was just plain bored, and desided to investigate the Winamp Forums...

What forums? General Discussions and Bitchlist are my most often posters. I often check in Breaking News, and I browse at the Winamp 2 & 3 Skinning sections just to see what talent has been brought forth. DJ & Listener just to see if there are any stations that play music that I like and to post at 2 other certain topics. That's about it.

A very close Japanese friend I knew a while ago once said to me "Watashi no koto wo oboeta, onegai shimasu...Yakusoku?"

I forgot his name though...

I came for the skinning. I post at GD, sometimes at Bitchlist, and at both the skins forums.

A friend told me about Winamp. I d/led it and found that you could 'skin' it. I thought this was a great way to start some computer graphics skills and so I joined for Skinlove (back in the day when it was just 'skinlove')

Then I came here...

What originally brought me here was trying to get advice on my first w2 skin, luxor. It so happens that it was right about as the forums were beginning.

I was modded... a couple months after that.

i stayed away from the forums for the longest time until one day denny emailed me asking if i wanted to be a mod. then i thought i would take a look around, you'll also notice that my post average is crappy for this reason.

I came here because of desire and boredom. Desire to make myself known after lurking for a couple of days and out of boredom since I didn't have anything else to do.

I came here also since I like to rant...within reason, of course. As for the other choice, I guess because I stumbled onto this site when I got into using Winamp frequently a couple of years ago.

I think I joined up to complain that the |< button skipped to the previous track, rather than restarting the current song, or something equally trivial, I can't remember.

Recently, it's masochism, definitely.

There's no need to tell me when I'm right;
I operate on that principle exclusively and with absolute certainty

I come here now because the "high speed" Internet connection that I have is too crappy for me to play games or download audio/video. Webpages/forums are about all it can handle.

Saw forums here one day and started posting. Did quite a few technical posts, got a big post count, became a moderator then slowly turned into a lurker.

I now see everyone I care about on irc, so i lurk mostly.

Basically, I got here because I decided I wanted to know what the "community" button on Winamp's site was all about. After I realized it was the forums, I lurked for a couple of days. One thread poped up in the bitchlist which was about Mountain Dew: Code Red, and I registered so I could post there. BTW, I will probably ressurect that thread because my 2000th post is comming.

Well, I first came here to suggest features for Winamp. Then I kinda seeped into Skin Love and GenDisc for a while, then I dedicated myself fully to Skin Love. Then, when they opened AVSDisc, I went there, too. And, of course, I've recently started posting in here again, too. So, yeah.

i first signed up for the forums to post in Winamp 2 Wishlist about an autoplay on startup [something i still think should be done ]

then i never used the forums until i got an email saying my skin had objectionably content and had been removed, since then i just sometimes have a browse when im bored.

In the early 2.x's I saw an article about winamp in time magazine. I went to the website and poked around there for a while. I clicked the "community" button which led to a UBB forum page with only about 11 or 12 forums on it.in early 2001 they switched to vB and then in May the Random Rumor Mill, Nullsoft Propaganda, and Music-O-Rama were formed. I sent an email to BT just to see if I could kiss his ass a little and I came back the next day to a modded account.

Fast forward several months when Music-O-Rama became the DJ & Listener Center and Nullsoft Propaganda and the Rumor Mill were merged to form Breaking News.


Ta da

eh, heh.
