So I wanted to introduce myself as a new member, but the truth is that I'm really not a new member, I'm just an old member who found his way back to this site.

You can call me Hadouken Jin, or Jin, or whatever, but I was once known under the handle of "yousmelllikecrap" This was about 12 years ago.
The truth is that 12 years ago, I was a mere child. Only about the ripe age of 10, I resgistered on this site in the hopes that I could find a group of people who, like me, use the Internet to have fun and love funny things.

Of course, this was only when I was about 10. To be honest, I was barely about to turn 10, so I was still considered a 9 year old. You have to understand that I was way too young to comprehend the idea that other users probably had their own lives to live and problems to deal with. What did I know? I was barely a pre-teen who played video games and watched cartoons all day lol

However, instead of actually getting along well with users and posting anything worthy enough to read, in retrospect, I was a damn troll.
I never really had anything good to say and all the threads I had started were pretty much the most useless and ridiculous. I even went on to create another username and fought with myself on two different usernames (possibly more than two) in multiple threads only to have those accounts banned (geez, was I a loser or what?)'s amazing I didn't grow up to develop multiple personalities.

Now, I am a healthy (ehh) 21-year-old man who, although still plays video games and watches cartoons, lives on his own (with his girlfriend) and works a full-time job as a sales associate at the airport (which sucks btw) and while so much time as passed by, I have one thing to say to everybody that had to experience the terror that was my past-self on the Internet and that is:

I'm sorry

I'm terribly sorry that you all wasted just even a second reading or (even worse) replying to any of my posts or threads that I started. I'm still not quite exactly sure what the hell I was thinking or even going through at that time, but rest assured that I am a changed man....well, now I actually am a man.
yousmelllikecrap was only a child. I mean, just look at that horrendous handle. Only a child would be able to type that into the username field and think "Yeah, that's a great name" The sad truth is that that was probably the best I could come up with at the time. Hell, it's probably the best I could come up with now, but I digress.

I'm terribly sorry for being so stupid.

Hello there, it has been a while indeed!

As you can see, we're still here, and no worse for wear. :) I'm surprised that you still remember about this place, to be honest: most people don't tend to look back to whatever they were doing when they were 10, and I find it interesting that you went as far as to register again for the sake of this message.

In any case, apology accepted! It seems like you've matured quite a bit, which is what matters in the end!

I post musings, images and nonsense on Tumblr! I play games on Steam! Add me on either/both, and don't hesitate to ask if you want to play something with me!

Howdy there, everybody, if you are all still here..

I came back. Amusing, that i'm not the only one looking back to when I was youthful. Glad to see some of the same faces around. ^_^

I've been creeping on this forum off and on without logging in for a couple years now, but I had some extra time today, so I reset my old password and came on in. I'm a member from way back when they were still producing mmbn 3 and 4. I'm sure the good Doctor remembers me. I was rather annoying at times. :P

It was normal on this board for n00bs to become regular members later. However, it can be surprising that you remember it considering that you weren't ever trying to legitimately participate in threads. Was this the only forum you ever joined before forums became no longer existent in their actual/real form?

Like half of the "original members", if you define "original" by "main people" or "people who knew each other and interacted etc." instead of "first", were n00bs or semi-n00bs first. Then again yours wasn't just "n00b" it was also additional. However once someone stops being a n00b regardless, this board puts them on. Except that it's not a board anymore.

Sad but true, forums are the VHS tape of the internet. Messengers are the in thing nowadays, and this place starts to collect dust as a result.
