Hey again, astroboy-online

Postby crazyd2000 » 6 years ago

I just wanted to pop my head in and see what had become of the forum since I stopped posting much in it around 2008. At the time I was posting (2006-2008), I was between the ages of eleven and fourteen, and pretty much friendless, so this site functioned as somewhat of a virtual social scene replacing the one the real would could not provide. In fact, at the time I was still living with a diagnosis of Aspergers Syndrome, and faced constantly with rejection from my peers. This site was inviting in a way nowhere else in the world was.

Anyway, I'm now attending college in Northfield, Minnesota (Carleton, if that has any significance to anyone) and I've been re-diagnosed as Aspergers in remission. I wanted to revisit this site in part to ask: does anyone actually remember me from the days I was posting? If so, feel free to reply; I'd love to have my memory jogged...

Hello. I don't think you'd know me, I joined less than an year ago. :) Welcome back, though. I'm a high school student from Taiwan.

I pretty much never had a lot of friends either, but I met a lot of nice people on this site, so I know what you mean. :)

I used to have a classmate who had Aspergers. He's very nice, but I haven't seen him in ages due that we haven't contacted each other ever since graduation from elementary school. :whistling:

I've seen you around on older posts, but I never got to talk to you since I joined in 2010. Nice to meet you. :)
You're not a joke, you fit right in!
So shake it off, and give a grin. Don't be afraid to stand your ground! Crazy, noisy BIZARRE Town!

I joined up a couple years ago so we never got to meet, but I'd really love to get to know you now.

Welcome back! It's always nice to see older members checking in every once in a while.

I joined in 2011, but I've seen your posts in older threads.

There are a few members from that time that are still active on here, like Jeffbert, Cybotron, Fafner, Astro Forever, and Fauna. I'm sure they all remember you. :)

Wow! Welcome back Crazyd2000 - I joined back in 2010 but I've often seen your posts - for someone with under 1000 posts, you made a very lasting impression, and I hope you'll be back on a regular basis once again (just for the fun of it). :)

Just to bring you "up to date" there was a new mini-series called "Little Astro Boy" which aired in Nigeria (Astro and some new and old characters were drawn "chibi" style) - and there is an upcoming "reboot" from France - so it's a good time to check back in! Hope you're enjoying college.

Hi, crazyd2000, and welcome back! I remember you from the photoshop game thread, you made a couple of funny entries! :D

Oh and hello everybody, I'm back as well!

(do I hear a slight "Noooooohh...!" somewhere in the back row?) :p

Hi Strange Wings. I think you closed your YouTube account a year or so ago. You had the cool Astro Boy soundtrack and now it's gone. (LOL! Where am I going with this?)
