My First Bulbaversary
by, 25th March 2013 at 11:54 AM (206 Views)
It's been one full year since I joined Bulbagarden, back on March 25, 2012. And I am so glad that I did.
I've been a member of Smogon and SPPf for a number of years, but back in all of the B2/W2 hoopla I was linked to BMGf, out of pure chance. I had heard of Bulbapedia, but never BMGf. As soon as I clicked the link I was hooked. There was so much to do, so much freedom, opportunity; the forum itself was structured appropriately and the design was impressive. I could not leave. And I didn't want to.
And now, looking back, I've come a long way in a year. I'm now in university, in a different state, with different responsibilities and priorities, and new friends and acquaintances. But my opinion of BMGf has stayed the same; I still love it here just as much as I did one year ago today. And in this year I've gone from another wannabe Pokemon fanboy to a regular contributor, to a part of staff, and within the last few days, a Moderator in full.
I've come a long way and met so many cool new people. And I couldn't ask for more. I can't possibly mention everyone, but I would like to thank the entire BMGf family. You are all awesome, and are what make this forum what it is: a community. I would also like to thank the BMGf Staff as a whole. You ALL do an incredible job keeping this forum in the condition it's in, and your shear effort and devoted time often go unnoticed. You make this forum exceptional -- a true cut above the rest.
I would also like to give a shout-out to my smaller VG Staff family: @Joshawott;, @twinArmageddons;, @Zeb;, @yourlilemogirl;, @PkmnGreen;, @GatoRage;, @Ninfia; You are all so cool. I'm so fortunate that I work in VG (because, well, let's be honest, VG is best). I am seriously looking forward to all of our future shenanigans and endevours. Hopefully we kick X&Y's ass, not the other way around. And I'm sure we will.
I would also like to give a special shout-out to @Blazaking;. You do an amazing job with your artwork, and it's safe to say that I am one of your biggest fans. I'm looking forward to what else you've got up your sleeves, and I appreciate how much you've reached out to me, especially in the last few months. Thank you.
So this blog post is to wishing for many more Bulbaversaries. Thank you, BMGf!
