Oh, more people started putting the number of pages they started the MPT at.
Ah, yes. Something that I think would be easier for me if my first posts here weren't deleted in some huge glitch eight years ago. o.o
And deleted stuff where I called Kira a dude because I thought "dude" could mean people of any sex/gender...
and when I saw Elecy was depressed about something. I thought she got in trouble for something, said sorry in some comment regarding that, and everyone suddenly thought I had reported Elecy. (I didn't, she wasn't reported at all.) It took a handful of months for me to get the nerve to send a friends request to Elecy. Also I had since pretty much refused to apologize for anything that wasn't my fault, and told others is wasn't their fault whenever they say sorry over anything they didn't cause.
I think there was also how the MPT kinda erupted into a civil war of sorts on Dec. 30, 2004. And I followed Kira and Midoshi into this thread in Kira's Guild: The Pantheon of Lesser Folk, I think it was called?
I found a very early post of mine. Sub 100k, but couldn't find anything further back. I recall there were two events where posts were gobbled up by database errors, I think I hit the second of them.
Oh dear me, well I would dispute that gender specificity but oh well.
Gosh. Wrong post at the wrong time. I don't remember that, but I do remember there being a lot of drama around Elecy at the time I started, and soon after. She was gone for a long time. Also, it's good of course that you stuck to your guns.
I wasn't in with the crowd enough to get involved in that particular civil war. I do however remember when things got bad for Colette. I had a lot to do with that.
I joined this thread on Dec. 4, 2004. First with Morales, then with this account. I hardly knew anyone during that civil war weeks later, so mainly watched in concern.
I don't really use the word 'dude' anymore anyway, so it doesn't matter much to me these days.
I don't think Elecy left soon after that scenario. Maybe to join a few friends at the Inner Circle thread in the civil war aftermath? I don't remember.
Let me guess: The Colette account is still banned because too many mods like to go with Guilty Even If Proven Innocent Later On or something like that... I recall for the longest time my greatest fear regarding this site has been getting banned over something...anything! It wasn't spiffy.
If Colette appealed his ban and there was evidence to support that the ban was unjust, the ban would have been lifted. The ban would not have even been placed had there not been evidence of a severe breach of the Terms of Service.
