ZeSovietRussian and GameMaster have both just passed their five year anniversaries with GC!! 5 years! And they've lived to tell about it. [Big Grin]

Nice going, guys. [thumbsup]

(don't anyone ask how I happened to know this.)

Easy, you're stalking all of us, and clicking on the profiles of everyone who has posted recently.

QED. (Quite easily done! [Wink] )

Oh great, my very own stalker. Should I be proud, scared, or perhaps proud and scared at the same time?

That made me curious about when I joined. I joined in August of 2003. Like Skylar my life has sure changed. From footloose librarian to mom waiting to adopt to chasing a 3 year old.

My other theory is that she looked at the join dates at the bottoms of posts. [Razz]

I remember when ZSR joined. He had a different name back then.

I've been here for about 18 months and things have sure changed for me...started at a new university, met my best friend ever; found out I have a 20 year old half sister, a brother-in-law and a nephew; got diagnosed with depression...

I just wonder what the next 18 months will hold.

Wow, there are some loyal GC ers here. Nice to see people have stuck around so long. And, as mentioned, seen so many life changes. [thumbsup]

I'm going to go sit in the corner and feel old now [Razz]

October 23, 2001, the day I joined. It's been so long ago, and so much has changed! You can read my old posts if you want to find out what... I'm too tired to bother [Razz]

Too many people confuse common courtesy with respect. Common courtesy should always be given. Respect, on the other hand, must be earned and is not a function of age.

That said, showing courtesy can be tricky too. What qualifies as courtesy is a moving target. Two people separated by only a few years will tend to have similar expectations for courtesy. The further apart the two are separated in age, the more likely that those expectations will not be met. The same thing happens with social groups, too (think about an emo and a goth having a discussion, then think about an emo and a perky blond cheerleader trying to have the same discussion. When you stop laughing, we'll continue).

I think the internet may reduce, if not eliminate, the differences in courtesy due to age (but not due to social grouping). Many of the people of my age who don't spend much time online seem to be somewhat out of touch to me. I find have to explain slang terms and meme related jokes when I'm talking with them. Their teenaged kids, however, get the jokes and understand the slang without any explanation. I connect with them better than I connect with their parents (which bothers me quite a lot, actually).

...

Well, that was about to turn into an essay. I blame you damn kids and your music [Razz]

lol - I've been here a while, but I've come and gone depending on interest and who's talking [Big Grin]

I sometimes get fed up with the drama and go wander around. I tend to come back though, since the people here are the best I've dealt with (with some exceptions)

Posts from Jess & sky...wow!

Well, in the absence of posts, let me extend invites of coffee to any fine lurkers out there. [Smile]

Oh...and I won't even touch on my join date or any such stuff - if I do that, I might be dating myself, and that could be awfully discouraging to a certain someone else.

/me kicks back, rejoices that DST2007 didn't seemingly break anything of his in a big way, and lets iTunes roll...now on "Where I End And You Begin (The Sky Is Falling In)." Somehow that sort of transports me to Brooklyn...go figure.

I joined in July of 2003, so that makes this July my 4-year mark.

I was 14 when I joined and now I'm 18. I went from having an angelfire site to my own domain name (which I only use for storage stuff, but it's still a nice upgrade). I went from being fiercely opinionated to being apathetic, but in the meantime became much friendlier and much happier.

I've learned how to roll sushi, how to drive a car, how to write a paper in LaTeX, how to use a lypholyzer and how to play DDR with a book on my head.

I'd say that these changes have been for the better.

DDR with a book, eh. Something I'll have to make our teens do. [Smile] We got a booksale grant to buy a PS2 and DDR mats for teen programs here at the library.

Wow! I have realised that the average age here is lower than I expected, I thought there were more people ages 30+, nice to see that the youth is taking over GC.
