Another birthday has fallen on me! :eek: Yes. I am 23 years old... Yikes. I am truly old! (Though this isn't really a bday thread, my bday doesn't even show up because it's on a leap year)

But birthdays have a tendency to remind us of things; help us reflect and remember the past. Put things in perspective.

I remember in September of 2003 when I joined Ragezone. My friend, now bf, got me hooked on RZ Mir2, and in effect, RZ itself. I was 19 years old, in college, and quite the crazy person on this forum! :wink_5:

So I've been looking at some of my old threads, and wow! Such good times. I really have been blessed to be a part of this place. It's funny because a lot of my time here I felt completely the opposite, like things were going against me. It's hard to really explain unless you've been around for a while. I've had my share of good and bad times, much like RZ itself.

As the past few years have gone by I have matured a bit (though have kept my fun spirit), have had a steady boyfriend since last Valentines Day, and as some of you know am currently a Teacher. So even though my life has changed a bit year by year, I can still come back here and embrace the forum and have a good time.

I'm having a good time again. Something I didn't really expect. Seemed kind of out of the blue when I was offered a mod position again. I really do appreciate the chance that has been given to me (for the third time? fourth?). This time feels almost as special as when I was originally offered a shot. It feels damn good to be back.

RZ means a lot to me. Through the good and the bad, I feel that my time here has had meaning, most importantly to myself. For a long time I felt that I cheapened my experience by stating I was a girl, though I am glad I did, because I have been able to, more or less, be who I am in real life on here. Love me, hate me, cherish me: This is me. And I'm glad to share myself to you guys, and more importantly, learn and grow with you guys as well.

NoPeace, the silly rascal, my other half (and probably better half now), said:

True there are a select few but for the fast majority being a mod is nothing more but a thing to brag about. Thus it's nothing special.

And although he may be right in most cases, I can say with happiness and truth, that being a mod has meant more to me than bragging rights. And I do think its special to be a mod, but more importantly, be a member of this forum, a true member; one that will always cherish the good and learn from the bad.

So to Mental, to all the mods past and present, to all the members... Thanks for having me for the past few years. I hope to be a round for a bit longer. To anyone that is new to RZ or unsure of it; just have fun. And be vocal (in a good way). Remember to be thankful for what RZ gives you, but most importantly, don't forget to give back a little as well :smile:

:heart: Take care :heart:

P.S.: For NoPeace, me past and present :wink_4:

Yeah you are right... You look less like Yuffie now. =P

Though back in the days of the random hair colours you did look like her. ;)

Hey come to think of it. Why did you stop doing that? Used to enjoy guessing what colour it will be today. =P

And yes. You are one of thoes select few that are a mod for more then just the title. I remember how you used to spend hours upon hours working on the forum pooring your heart and soul into it. I used to call you crazy for it, but then again you called me crazy for doing the same thing. But that's the kind of person you are.

Very strange on how things change. Looking back at our old messages can sometimes embarasses us seeing how immature we were. And then to see how much we have changed and matrued over time is quite amazing. Though some things change but a lot stays the same. I'm still a spammer. You are still crazy. MentaL is still secrative. Kitten's still a lesbo. DTB is still an butt (though in a good way). Akaruz is still a great laugh. But in the end we are all much more mature.

And by the way. This is the fourth time being S. Mod. =P

You got it and then quit because you got fustrated. You then got it again and quit. Came back and got it again and quit. And now for the longest time you got it again.

You just cannot make up your mind now can you? :1: :icon6:

And woohoo... I get to be the better half for once. =P

NoPeace - out

Yeah I have been quite the crazy on here :eek:

I was constantly frustrated on here! You know that more than anyone :p

Can't color my hair much anymore due to my job :/ Well, nothing fancy anyway. I've had it red, blue, green, purple, etc.... Doesn't fly anymore! Stupid "real world". But with going back to school this fall, that may change! :smile:

Thanks for the love and help you've given me. I haven't talked to you in ages... For many reasons, but mostly because I haven't been active enough until late. The forum definitely wouldn't be the same without you :heart:

Oh yeah I do. The hours upon hours of hearing you talk about everything that is wrong and good on this site really do lets me know. =P

I remember you ranting for 4 hours straight on Mir about it. :icon6:

You better start up with thoes freaky colours when your back in school. Though... Just imagine the faces of your students as you walk into class with lime green hair. :icon6:

Yeah... Either I wasn't here much or you wasn't here much over the last year do to real life situations. Sucked in the since that it's always fun to talk to you. =P

And yeah nothings the same with out the 1337 spammer NoPeace! :icon6:

I remember when I first ventured out of the Mu section and into the General section. I really shook that place up with my spam. So many threats and flames. :icon6:

This place might have been a better place. But then again look at all the spam me, you and iod used to clean up. While of course making tons ourselves. ;)

Oh how I yearn for the early times on ragezone. Mu pretty much took any chance of me knowing you guys personally until I pulled it out of my butt and started using ragezone for what it was really worth: its community. Yeah we've had our ups and downs but every discussion board has that kind of thing. Thanks to Mental for letting me be mod for as long as it has been for me. I know I haven't been perfect in my choices but it feels good to help people out.


Ya know...there's still time left to get to know everyone on here :p

Hahah I used to complain all the time! Especially to you.. If not JUST you! Sorry about that!

But my complaining was always out of love for the forum. Never anything else. I always always wanted more for this place. Always wanted the best.

We ruled at mod stats back then :p We'll always have that to "brag" about :p Wish Iod was still around to brag with us :smile:

As for spamming... We obviously have done more than our share.. But we do it in style! Yeah! :wink_5:

Ya know...there's still time left to get to know everyone on here :p


And that is the truth! You may have missed the "beginning" *technically so did I*, but its never too late to get involved!

I've known you for about 3 days Becky, but your awesome. Hope you stay with RZ for..ever o.o

I know I'll be here for a long time.

Happy Birthday Becky.


Likewise! And thank you very much!


Funny how the monkey alone is enough to know you care :hug:

I feel so immature now that I've read that. I guess I'll just have to look at it as inspiration and become less of an idiot and more flamboyant here on the forums. But, I don't know if I can have one without the other in my case. :wink:

Happy Birthday and all the best wishes to ya. :tongue:

Nothing to be sorry for. It was fun. =P

That is so true. You are probally the person that cares the most about this place. :icon6:

We ruled at mod stats back then :p We'll always have that to "brag" about :p Wish Iod was still around to brag with us :smile:

I know we did. And we have the right to. What each of us did in a day totaled what the average mod did in a month. :construct

As for spamming... We obviously have done more than our share.. But we do it in style! Yeah! :wink_5:

Oh yes we do do it with style! Since our spam isn't spam. We just post a lot. Even if it's a 100 times in a day. It's a lot but not pointless. :icon6:

You, old? No, you're still quite young - slightly less than half my age.

What level do you teach at? Good to see I'm not the only female here :smile:

It is weird seeing how some things have changed over time (ppl coming & going, posting habits and the such). Which then makes me wonder why the other stuff remains the same ("Server? Sticky? stfunoob, im rihgt & your wrong!"). Anywho:

Ionic: Well Ragezone wouldn't be the same with it's favourite resident President/ex-comic book author/ex-flash animation hunter/really-humorous-friendly-impartial-and-fair-type-person? On the scrap heap! That's where! So don't leave! Please. Pretty please..... Please.

Schizo: Cotton headed ninny-muggins :bleh:

Schizo & Ionic: Heepy Burphdeh as well. :groupwave:
