If you didn’t already know, the ATS bar on your profile is full at 4000 posts. With this post my ATS bar will be full and I thought that it would be
something worth celebrating (even if no one replies on this thread).
It took me one year, one month, and one day to get to this point. It was that long ago when I decided to take the red pill that is ATS. I’ve learned
a lot in this time. I do have to credit ATS with my improvement in communication.
Probably what I’m most known for is making avatars. I’m pretty proud of that. I have made 227+ avatars since I joined the ATS membership.
34 Avatars I have made for myself. I’ve made 162 Comic book avatars, and 31 miscellaneous avatars. I still have several avatars up for grabs. Check
out Avatar Blow Out!
There are a handful of other threads I am proud of but I wont link them here at the risk of seeming like I’m self promoting.
I’ve made a few friends here. It is funny how we can make friends with people that are so far away in the world.
Before ATS, I used to frequent an IRC server where I held a somewhat high position of power. After finding that I was no longer enjoying myself there
and was only getting stressed out over “chat politics” I decided to give up my position in hopes of reclaiming the enjoyment I used to experience
there. Unfortunately this just showed me that the people who I thought were my friends were merely clinging to me because of the position I held.
Here at ATS I was able to find that enjoyment again.
Cheers to the ATS community. Even the members I don’t always agree with. Being a member of this group is an honor and a privilege.
Thanks and take care.
