Title: Apparently I visited this forum when I was 12.

I was trying to google any info that could get me access to my Neopets account (for very important Youtube matters, I assure you) and ended up finding this place. I have no memory of ever being here, but this account is definitely mine.

So hi, how's it going? And, uh, what is this place? :X

Fascinating.  We've seen oldbies come back, but this is a new one.  Welcome back.  What have you been up to for the last 14 years or so?  Tell us about yourself.

Talk about an oldbie!

I looked through your post history, last one was in 2004: http://thegaminguniverse.org/forum/index.php?topic=13014.msg194563#msg194563

A thread about dreams; before I joined. :p

The GU, been my internet home for years... though... I hardly come here anymore save to punish bots, and post occasionally. That thread you posted in, GameChamp, makes me long for the old days.

GU was a forum created with many members from AGN splintering off to here. We were all about (re)making games, and such. Our peak was when Seek and... I forgot the name of the game, was popular, but it littered us with immature people.

Regardless, over the years, it felt almost like a family here. I made so many friends through RP, and despite my own immaturity, I felt that people cared about me. A very good place for me to come since my best friends were on the other side of the country (at the time, I was living in New Jersey), and I was having a very rough time making RL friends at middle school. I made a lot in my Junior and Senior years of High School, but... I lost contact with them.

GU's not very strong anymore, but you're welcome to stay. :)

Hey, family reunions are pretty scarce, too;^)

OMG, I actually posted on that one?  It's one of those moments you look back on and think, "Wait, I said that?"

I know how you feel, Guardian. I'm scared to look at my old, old, old RPW posts. *shudder*

I don't care if they're scarce... I want everyone to come home! :lT.T

Wow, that was a long time ago, and the game Aegis was thinking of was Seek n' Dread Online.
