Why'd You Join TheSite?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Why did you join thesite? Was there a particular reason or did you just stumble on it one day and thought it looked cool? With me, my mum was worried about me cos I kept scratching my arms and she found the Health forum and the Self-Harm and Depression thing and showed it me. Been hooked ever since.

    Stumbled on it on the NTL Internet Homepage.

    Then I went for BT Broadband

    This is the only good thing I got out of NTL

    I joined because the main forum I used to belong to was undergoing a revamp, which meant it was down for a few weeks, and a whole load of us wanted a new site and forum to post on until it was up and running again. A few of us stayed when the revamped site and forums wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

    Mr_Wobble ;)

    i stumbled into the drugs forum by accident. had a read of some of some very misinformed stuff to with drugs. the beliefs some people had were downright dangerous!
    anyway i thought i would just correct a few things ...from experience but had no intention of hanging around.
    i attacked almost everybody. kicked all the furniture over and was trouble from the word go.
    thing was i found i had to keep popping back to see what effect it was all having. got hooked cos i found myself learning a lot of stuff about people the same age as my own kids. i'm still learning.
    trouble was, just as i got hooked the mods locked me out. let me in again and then locked me out again! when dom let me back in he had removed all my posts so i had to start from scratch and promise to behave myself ...lost over 600 posts.

    I think a similar thing happened to, but also, i think people I talk/talked to on the net put a link to it in their livejournal. Plus the BBC one turned into a thing where bimbos talked about a cute guy in a boy band. And there was a 3 months war: townies versus goth and greebos

    I stubbled across it.......i did a search for osmething *can't remember what*
    I thought it was a nice cosy place (then there was sooooooo many fewer people) so joined.
    I think a thing I regret is telling other people about it. Cos I can't talk about anything as about 6 friends use it. Plus once something i said here was 1) used against me 2) started an argument.
    So I suppose I wish I'd kept it to myself.

    Mindless all the way forced me :(

    I got the url but didn't have time to register, as thick as I was I for some odd reason went to messageboard.com where they were really mean. Then Mindless got the url and started laughing as I'd gone to the wrong site.

    Then someone asked for another messageboard and told about messageboard.com and people started the "war".

    I found it when I was doing a project about drugs at school - that stuff on the site was really useful (but then again, it is meant to be...) I think I joined the boards through one of them links on the front page of the site where they have the popular topics.

    actually i was bored and saw a quiz thingy and then looked in here, cuz i had never been on a message board before and i thought i should try it out.

    Lisa simpson's saxophone (who's never around anymore...) showed it to me a coupla years ago, and i read the boards for a while without posting - then last autumn I signed up, and started off using it mainly for help with health, relationships etc and also for giving advice where I could :)

    One of my mates found the clubbing forum through Ministry of Sound web site, and then showed it to me. His name on here is "Apestyler" but he hasn't posted lately.

    My girlfriend at the time used to mention it a few times, so I decided to join.

    I haven't seen her on this for a while, but she did come back and post a couple of messages not too long ago.
