Okay...hello everyone

Right now i am EXTREMLY PISSED OFF!!!!!!

Some of you posters may remember my oldself as Ravenstar...i am now Gryffen.

This nasty change of events was caused by something weird on this board and i place no blame on anyone of you as it could just be a virus sent by a u2u i recieved? it possible to get my old stars back?

Some of you may notice that i have changed my email address...don't worry..i've decided to revamp myself and change my ways!

So...back to starting the star thingy again?

Oh, BTW....could this problem be caused by the updates to this site?

I would really like more help so feel free to post!

PS~what do you mean by revamp and change your ways???

Hey Magestica

well, i was just about to post something and then the user screen came up saying that i wasn't registered but i was still able to post the reply!!!!

I came out of ats and back in and tried to login again, failing i requested another password and i tried that. After numerous tries i gave up and had to change my email name and start from scratch with ATS!

I don't know why it happened? I only recieved 2 u2u's today and my computer scans for virus's daily!

Is there upgrades going on in ATS?

Is there a warning about disruptions?

Oh, when i said revamp and change my ways i meant that i was doing this:

Losing some weight
Taking pride in way of not caring what people think of my large size but letting them know that i have a great personality underneath the size i am!

My great-grandad said that 'Life is too everything at least once and then you can say that i have lived'

I intend to do it....i have also just completed my 2nd weekend on Tactical with the TA....sore but alive and kickin'

If anyone can explain if this has happend to you..then please tell me?

Thanx guys

I could be wrong, but I don't think you can get a virus through u2u's.
Could be a bug in the system though, you should u2u william and ask.

Congrats on the new you,

Be Cool

Hey Cass....

Look...i'm coming clean here..hope i don't shock anyone or either that have a laugh on me..i don't care!

I'm 20 years old and a former Bulemic....

I am about 6ft with long dark/reddy hair and dark brown eyes-almost Tiger eye (stone) colour.

I am a nurse assisstant in mental health and i am also a helper in the local Army/Airforce base when i am on duty with the TA.

I'm about a size 22 - used to be bigger but after lots of bullying at school that almost made me slit my wrists i took ahold of my weight and started to diet.

I don't have many friends my oen age but since joining the TA, i have made many friends from all over the world.

I am a very cheerful person..loves to help when i can and always trying to find something new to try.

I'm very quiet when in company who is older..but give me someone who is the same...i can make them shine

I don't care what people look like...if they have a good personality.....i'll glady make friends and chat with them.

Thats it.....thats what i meant by revamp!

I'd take the stars and ratings...but for the old me...nah!

I'm a new woman and proud to be it!

Cheers for all the help

Noone would DARE laugh at you surely you jest!!
And you know what? I TRIED doing this a while ago with the "Magestica" thread and I suppose everyone else was too chicken(?) to share who they really are and what they are all about. Noone even wants to share photos of themselves's sad I think as deep as we all go here we should atleast not be "afraid" to take a breather and "be real" for a moment(meaning share some personal info about ourselves as you so bravely did)
You are off to a good start!!
Wish you all the best of luck with everything! And I certainly enjoy reading your posts

ATTENTION! DNS changes are in-progress. Forum/site interruptions may occur for some users.

This was on the index page, could explain what happened to you.

Thanks K_OS

Can't they u2u people and give them warning?

If its on the front the hell are we meant to know something is going on?

Not blaming William..but it would help if the notice board could send a notice to the posters!

I dont think they know who or when the bugs will happen. Anyway in the mean time, see if you can get "Ravenstar" underneath gryffen as a user title.

link, Gryffen, Congrats on the "new" you. I dont know why people put such an emphasis on appearance, but it's whats on the inside that counts. It's a shame people are so shallow these days, at least from my experiences.

I have tested out your "RavenStar" account using your username and a new password I created for it, and I found no problem at all.

I have e-mailed the username and password to your e-mail account on file for your RavenStar XMB account.

Welcome back! PLEASE Dont ever leave!!

Besides, you are a wonderful person, so dont worry about what others think of you (I dont think anyone thinks anything but good of you here!)

Keep the faith, and we will always be there for you

I am so pleased that you gathered the courage to share a bit of yourself with us. That was a brave thing to do and your reward is receiving all the positive affirmation from fellow ATS members.

I'm also pleased that a thread containing real human content has appeared, we seem to lack that element some times.

The 12-step tradition has a saying, "We're only as sick as our secrets".

May I suggest that you visit my website (if you haven't already) it's got hundreds of useful personal growth links. I also have many articles about eating disorders that I can send you.

All the best in your new life direction, and I hope all your future choices are positive, beneficial and nurturing to yourself.

Hang in there girl,

Hey Gryffen!

I can only congratulate you on what you are doing, both online and in real life. At the very least, considering that you are one of the service people who not only put your life in harms way, but do so in order to help those who are injured, you deserve a good bit of respect!

Remember, come what may, you will always have friends and support here!
