Anniversary Reflections in General Discussion Posted May 23, 2015 · Report reply Just hit ten years a few days ago, so I've been here almost half my life. I was 12 when I joined. The Short Stories subforum was like 60% songfics and I don't think anybody writes those anymore. That's probably the most drastic change, other than various rule loosenings. It's funny, but I tend to use joining this site as a turning point in the chronology of my life, and oftentimes find myself dating various events as "x years before/after BZP." Since joining, I've become an obsessive musician and realized that everyone, myself included, was totally wrong about what gender I am for two decades. Those are about the only major changes I've undergone.
