Or at least I think so.
How long has everyone else been here?
that still cuts,eh?
I was 19.
London AND Bedford. I'm not sure if I knew what DiS was then, but someone handed me a badge outside the Underworld.
Didnt post at first and actually came here for music stuff. Apparently DiS also doubles as a music forum as well
after lurking for around a year. Was probably aware of the site for three years or so prior to that. I think Alex-in-Ciderland and lemonbrickcombo are names I remember as sticking out from my earliest encounters with the social board.
Early to mid
I was going to ATP and was searching for information on the bands I hadn't heard of.
17 year old me was pretty cringeworthy.
you're not even 30 yet?
you have this world-weary, voice of reason thing. it's...misleading.
whilst golden boy Theo takes care of the PR.
Never done too much posting though. I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree.
oh god bye
Would've been 2003ish. Fucksake.
remember the days when it was exciting to see us hit "100 people online"?
Remember when you could see the amount of users online?
Remember when you could see your post count?
Remember when you could click to see the latest reply?
Remember when you could see the list of your recent thread-replies on your profile?
'remember when drownedinsound was feature rich and intuitive'
OOOO SICK BURN
:( sorry sean
the look, the feel and the features. Obviously I know there's been issues and lack of funding to keep the site fully operational but I don't know if these features have been lost in a 'refurb' or simply due to lack of funding to keep them going.
The site had some good features that are currently MIA.
Although that doesn't count DiSPREMIUM users who've set their online status to "invisible" (I don't bother myself cos I've got nothing to hide).
or do you just have to type in the URL yourself?
on DiSPREMIUM, it's all just voice commands.
Yes I do.

Good acronym, that.
And stopped the whole bf thing.
ah the wonderful semi-anonymous (though not really in the wake of such threads belonging to cat_race, Robseon etc) world of DiS.
And Stealthy became KiK/forza (don't know how it's taken other ppl so long to realise this). Best Stealthy post was when he was asked to write something poetic from the point of view of a leaf and he answered with this: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4143611#r2555292
it's funny how you don't always put two and two together for who people become on here.
Good post as well haha
