Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Razilin, Apr 12, 2010.

  1. The final thread. This is all Iwakuans who are on the member list today. What factoids can you add? And I mean factoids, not just whatever claim to fame you personally acquired.

    1. Long-time member of Space-Kitten.org's communities. I just had a tendency of periodic bouts of inactivity/MIA.
    2. I've known Diana since I was 11-ish. We've never seen completely eye-to-eye, but we've never been downright antagonistic.
    3. I got Tain to come here after explaining that this place doesn't suck.
  6. "So sleep."
    • Nice execution! Nice execution! x 1
  7. Name: Miru Maybeaneko (Call me Miru. =P)
    Join Date: Umm....I can't remember. XD
    Factoid: I was referred by Kitti from the depths of Gaia after knowing her for roughly a year and a half to two years.
    Factoid: I arrived at Iwaku when it was on proboards, near the end of that "era", so to speak.
  8. 1. Was recruited by Gabe from Animelyrics.com where I was keeping the entire RP board alive... with just my RP's. : (

    2. Joined prior to Iwaku's first crash though under a different name.

    3. Earned the title "Voice Of Iwaku" from Gabe, and numerous female members after a leaking of one of my vocal recordings for a song I was working on.

    4. Developed a mentor, and older brother relationship with a few members, and often offer then guidance, and advice.

    5. Known to give out his phone number in order to converse with members cause Jumi thinks all Iwakuans are cool.

    6. Voted Best Beard five consecutive years in a row. : D
  9. Kunari sniff her gently, “Meh, just smells like baby to me.”
  10. Kunari look at the crow irritably.
  11. Good Afternoon?

    I think I am going to go ahead and take a nap. So my plan is when I get up, I will work on my posts, then my sheets, and then at midnight start the new game. Or whenever its comes out on Steam. But yea, I still plan on posting, but it be later in the evening.
  12. Well, I kind of like the idea to have it in a group, but I do not really want to 'monitor' my words in ever post due to the non-sexual rule for groups. I suppose there no point in the group-part anyways. Since we can just not delete the PM, and relate back to it. We cant keep every RP as the PM box will fill up, but one or two we can. Since i do not think those are deleted by anyone but us.
  13. Well, I got some posting done, but I think I am finally at my limit. Need to log out. So I talk to you later, but probably wont post till after midnight.
  14. "Go for it."
  15. The Exodus was great, but I think the greater achievement were the discussions we had beforehand. That was one of the first times I had seen the entire site involved in a decision and planning for the future of Iwaku. The eventual decision for the Exodus only came after 'our' (rory and Asmo's) request for complete control over the site was shut down by Homac, who at that point was inactive to the point of invisibility.

    There has been talk of Rory running the site alone, but luckily Asmo decided to stay on, and Diana joined the team for GREAT JUSTICE.


    I wouldn't know the true statistics (ask Diana) But I believe roughly half the current active members used to be around on either AFTA or Moonwings, earlier sites made by Diana. The drive to join Iwaku began slightly before the exodus, but really got going when Iwaku got hosted on the same web-address as AFTA.


    The old Proboards site used to have an adult section which was password protected and contained shirtless pics (Asmo was one of the first to post, for all of you fangirls) As well as some private RP's, naughty games (guess the above posters fetish!) and serious mature discussions. It was ermoved after Proboards pointed out that it was against their TOS, which led to Member ridicule of the proboards terms of service, and the use of "TOS Violation" as a sort of censorbar for nasty stuff. For example: "I'm going to TOS VIOLATE you so hard that your TOS Violation will be the size of a grapefruit!" It has turned into an old injoke since then and is rarely used anymore.

    The old adult forums are back though, in the form of Diana's membergroup "Smutclub." Check it out if you are over 16 and interested.
