Believe it or not, today (January 19th) is the 12th anniversary of when I created my account here. The site has vastly changed since I first joined, though much of its great content from the past still remains after all these years. From time to time, I also see some really good new content get posted here. Some submissions I've seen are terrible. Others are fantastic. There's also submissions that are in between or just plain weird. Nevertheless, this site has been something I've cherished for quite some time. It is a cherished aspect of my teenage years as I became a NG member a month after my 13th birthday, and had been surfing it since June 2006.
Even if I don't visit this place these days nearly as often as I used to from 2007 to 2012, I'd like to thank the NG community for countless fun memories. I still enjoy making animations for it and viewing what others have to offer. College really cut into how much time I could spend here, then work needed my attention and remains my primary focus now. All the friends I have here are highly valued. Too many people to list by name, but you all know you who are.
