How long have you been on the VGF?

Actually got curious after reading a bit of the "toxic to newcomers" thread. Realized I've been here off and on longer than a lot of posters. And was kind of curious how long everyone has been posting here.

I started posting around the launch of the PS3. Started off in the 60gb PS3 forums and then kind of migrated here. Started posting exclusively here after I sold my PS3.

I can't remember what my old nick used to be (haha sad I know, but man its been awhile), but I remember being here back in the trolling hey dey when we all used to go around trolling random VGF forums for laughs, and half the time bringing new posters back to the VGF.

Hadn't posted much until recently, switched jobs and my internet goofing off time at work basically disappeared. But about 6-8 months ago got a new promotion, which of course meant more sitting around bored at work time. I've seen some posters I recognize, but a WHOLE lot of ones that I don't. Especially with the name changes like crazy here.

Late 2010, around September.

Hmmm, around a year, perhaps. I started posting in mid-2011. I originally just read posts because I was too afraid I would get treated like garbage (as you might be able to tell, I didn't have all the self esteem back then), but then I slowly posted, then I grew a pair and now I post all the time.

I dunno, whenever they strengthened our internet security at work. I'm going to say 2010 as well.

Probably around the end of 2009. I only post on and off here though but am always in the PS3 60GB forum.

That's about when I started, too. And for the same reason. When then blocked every other site related to gaming, this was what I had left.

I miss Fryfat.

Ah man I remember FryFat. That guy was nuts. Did you ever actually look at his blog? I dont really think he was trolling, I think he was legitimately insane.

Cinema Fan says:
Yeah, I read it once. Wouldn't be shocked if Fryfat is locked up in either jail or a mental ward now.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 14, 2013 11:20:31 AM PST
Well I think thats the main reason everyone posts here. Its one of the only forums that even let me near it at work. Oddly enough though they blocked them for like 2 weeks one time but then brought them back. I'm guessing some IT guy from my work posts here too or something.
