My profile says I've been here since 2008 but I actually didn't post anything until 2013 after which I was hooked. I really don't know what prompted me to register way back then and I certainly don't know why I never participated for so many years. Just one of my life's mysteries.
I still feel like a newcomer sometimes even though it's been nearly 4 years of active posting, and 3 years as staff. It's a lot of fun round here though so I reckon I'll be kicking around for many years to come.
