That last year went by pretty fast to say the least. But hey, I've spent half a decade being a member on this site and I can't say for sure that I'd be here in another year or so. But I've met some awesome people through the creative section of the site and they're still coming in. So here's just a few people I'd like to give a 5 year shout out to:
voiceofourgeneration/Dar - Easily one of my best bros here. First met him in '08 when he was still known as Kissui Tensai. We RP'd a few times together (and still do) and was pretty much the ground of my inspiration to get into tagging and eventually pursing graphic design as a minor in college. So thanks to him for that and hopefully we'd be able to chill IRL sometime.
Superbia/Tav - Basically the other half of Dar. As most have, I've been torn to shreds by this guy, and no doubt I've learned a lot of things from him that I've translated into my everyday live and it's worked wonders for me. I've borrowed his don't-kupo-with-me attitude in some situations and its payed off. And aside from that, he loves to be personal, not in a negative sense, but he actually makes an attempt to befriend people and I admire that.
Apple Jaxx/Eric - Jaxx and I are probably 1 and 2 in terms of the goofiest kids in the DM (aside from Malibu). I've also learned tons from this guy in regards to tagging such as what to do and when to do it. As such my skills have progressed to a point where they're actually bearable to look at and not just trash anymore lol. So yeah, thanks for that. Oh, and he likes dubstep, which is always a plus in my book.
Cloud, Pablo & Celtis - I hate to group you guys together but I swear you're all one in the same. While some are here more than others I definitely enjoyed your company throughout the years. Through your sarcastic remarks and empty insults, I get a laugh every time I read one of your posts. I can already see you all getting upset that I grouped you together but hey, deal with it.
Malibu/Amphetamine - gif wars. That is all.
Ophan/Nic - Real props to this guy. Probably in China or somewhere. But you definitely have a talent with your art and I hope it leads you somewhere. Keep doing what you're doing and I know you'll be happy. And anyone reading this and doesn't know Nic, you need to cause you're missing out on a great person.
And I'm probably missing a few people, but that's all I have from the top of my head D:
