Of Olden Times and Reflections

Recommended Posts

As a fellow older member I relate to how difficult it is to come back. I think 2014 was the peak for my activity here, too, and I have a lot of fond memories of kh13 from that time period... I never really had the courage to talk to people or get to know them better, but even then there was this sense of community that I miss... Not that there isn't anymore, but it's just different, and I don't really recognize people anymore. So for a long time I just wasn't very active here, because it just didn't feel the same.

I've tried to be more active lately, too. And you know what? I think I'm rediscovering my love for this place. It's different for sure, but if you can move past that, it's still a lovely community. Maybe more quiet, but lately I feel like more members have been active again. Probably because of KH3, but I really hope it stays this way even as we move further from KH3's release.

I don't really know what I'm trying to say, but if you decide to become more active here again, welcome back. :)

It's always nice to see older members around, because there aren't that many here anymore. You probably don't remember me, but I remember seeing you around here a lot back then.

It's very different from 2014 KH13 and now. It seems like a lot of new faces pop up with every topic XD. I'm sorry that stuff happened to you and I know that pain a lot in just real life. I used to never be active on here other than lurking but now I'm posting at least weekly which is huge XD It makes me feel more apart of the community than before. Happy to see you again ^-^ I'm an oldie (joining back in 2014 actually XD) and I remember seeing ya around.

Wow, that is crazy! So much has happened over the past few years, it's hard to think that we've already come this far in life, eh?

But yes, I definitely remember a time when this site was teeming with life, and there were bountiful and endless members left and right. And well, the community was bustling all the time. It's not that it isn't anymore, but like you said, things have most definitely changed. As do all things in life. Ever since I moved to the US, my life has gotten busy to the point that I'm not able to come online daily anymore, hence I only show up once a week or whenever I get the chance. And it sucks, because I used to log in here daily to post in the community and chat with my friends. But one has to be attentive to one's responsibilities, so it's all a part of growing up.

Kingdom Hearts and this website will forever and always be a part of my life, and so long as I live, I will always log in here, no matter how much or how little. But I do hopefully want to be able to make it a habit to come online daily again, even if just for an hour. Hopefully I can make the time soon. But yes Alicia, I feel ya, and like you said, a new saga will bring forth a legion of new fans, so we, the old guard, can welcome the new bloods and enthrall them in the magic that is Kingdom Hearts!

And well, I think that's something we can brag about, that we were here when the website had its old guard, and we can say we are present for the new blood! May our hearts be our guiding key! 

Stay awesome, and know you'll always have a friend in me! :3

I actually do remember you friend! You're one of the few names that I still see here whenever I log in. It is nice to know older members still hang around here. :) And thank you for the encouragement. I am trying to come back again. Like another member of this site, Transcendent said, when you get on in life, like college and work for me, it gets harder to come back. But if I can make a connection on this site again, I'll try my hardest. :)

Shige, you're gonna make me cry here. XD You're like one of the only old friends I still come here to talk to. :P I feel you about adult life kicking all the fun to the curb. But like you, I'll try to make as much time for this place as I can and when I can. :) Thanks for always being around. You're basically the Sora of this site. XD

While I didn't even have an account back then, I did visit the site all those years ago as a lurker.

And while things here may certainly have changed since then, things in life often do, I want to welcome you back as well and hope that you enjoy your stay in this community once more :)

Good to meetcha! I'm glad you decided to come back to the site, though I'm sorry that such  unfortunate circumstances caused you to leave the site in the first place. That couldn't have been easy and I'm glad you were finally able to return. I'm pretty new to the site, having joined in January of 2018, and so far the community has been amazing, so I hope you're able to settle back in again without any issues. 

And by the way, there's no shame in being an older fan of the series. Heck, I'm 26 (turning 27 in August) and I've been with this series literally since its inception back in 2002. I saw the commercial on TV and asked for the game for christmas, and 16-17 years later, here we are. So you're not alone on that front. Feel free to message me if you're looking to chat; I love meeting new people and making new friends.

I guess in short, what I'm trying to say is welcome back to the site! I can't wait to get to know you better! :)

I am 26 and I love adventure time and my little pony and I can explain why I like it does types of people that say you can only like something because "reasons" are no people who are worth  listening to. Do what you love and be good!

Glad to see another big fan of animated shows! Gravity Falls is hands down one of my top three favourite shows of all time!

Thanks Allwil! :) Yeah, it was, but I'm putting all that behind me. :) Oh cool. My birthday is in Sept. I sadly didn't come into the series until much later in life, but I enjoy every bit as much as an old fan does I think. And I look forward to getting to know you and others better too.

Hey! I have to say I feel a little similar to you as in a lot of my friends stopped coming here, but I've kept in touch with most of them, and there's a lot of new members on here who I'm glad I got to know. It's always good popping in every once in a while! Also please tell Jack Sparrow I miss his posts DEEPLY! Glad to hear that you're all doing well too ^.^

Well hey, I'm all for emotional moments! I live for the feels! XD Yessss, it's crazy how there are so few of us left here on the site from the olden days! Just goes to show that we're still tight, though! :D 

Ha, and yeah, well, even though adulting can be hard, it's necessary for survival, but that doesn't mean we should stop doing the things we love! It's all about a balance! Yep, same here! Here's hoping I can become a daily presence again! And hey, no prob, you know I'm always here! :)

Yesss, I take that mantle of being Sora very proudly! I'll happily be this site's Sora! :D

This is also my reply from my topic that I created almost a year ago. Yes, I do still remember you, Alicia!

Soravids also talked about you with me, I hope your relationship with soravids will be better till you both be together! ;)

Yes, I'm also surprised that this forum has changed much, and I'm not sure if old members still recognize me, but thank you to KH3, I'm able to visit this forum once again, although I sometimes felt lazy to back here in the past (that's the reason why I didn't response your reply at my topic at August 2018 back then, I'm really sorry :( )

Oh don't apologize. :P I still remember you too. The last half of 2018 was a little strange for us. And we are doing amazing! We're still together and hoping to see each other in person one day soon. :)

Ah the old days. Those were the times. It is unfortunate how things are bound to change with time. I hope you continue to enjoy Kh as a whole still. That newfound happiness and excitement we all got when we first played the series will never be lost! First time I've been on in months and here I am lol.
