    So, I figured this would be one of those cheesy "Remember back in the day?" FP topics. Let's take a stroll down memory lane. I'll try to reply here with random little tidbits about myself. I've been on forums for over a decade now, so there's plenty of embarrassing stuff from my nab days all over the web.

    Here's my application, for when I applied to the Package Team in July 2010:

    Applicant - 2787cmt
    Age: 14. (Yes, I know I am young, but I have 2 years of experience on forums already.)
    Previous Forum Experience:
    I am currently the owner of Promoters Park and Cmt Sports Forum. I am a Global Moderator on EYEON STUDIO.(I might be resigning soon, from EYEON, due to the forum being under new management.)

    Moderator on HockeyNation.(MyBBExtra)
    One of the three administrators on The Moss Place.(Proboards)
    Global Moderator on JavaGFX.(Proboards)
    Global Moderator on SOC.(Proboards)
    Moderator on SportsCenter.(Proboards)
    Owner of UDKROCKS.(Proboards)
    Administrator on PSU-Pitt.(Proboards)
    Administrator on SpaBoy.(Proboards)
    Administrator on MrChris65 Forum.(Proboards)
    Moderator on TheTwinsSamuelson Forum.(Proboards)
    Administrator on CBuzz Sports Forum.(Proboards)
    Global Moderator on CBuzz Sports.Forum(Proboards)

    If you would like a link to these forums, I can send them to you.
    Why Should You Be Selected: Because I know I can do the job well. I have lots of staff experience, but this will be my first time as part of the Package Team anywhere, but I know, experience has got to start somewhere. I have had the ambition of being apart of a Package Team for quite sometime. I use good grammar and spelling.
    How Many Packages Can You Do A Day: As much as I need to, I could see doing 10 packages a day, if that's okay with you. Maybe alot more on busy days.
    How Often You Are Online: I am online a few hours a day.
    Do you have any samples?: I think you have seen these threads, but here.
    Examples:
    viewtopic.php?f=47&t=50787&start=60
    viewtopic.php?f=84&t=49042
    Extra Info(Anything you want to add at all): I would love to get my first ever Package Team job anywhere. I think I am the man for the job, I won't let you down.

    Also, my Yahoo IM is Cmt2787. I am not on it very much, so if you want to talk to me there, you will probably need to warn me. :confused:

    It's been over eight years. @Sshadow hired me, but I didn't exactly last long. Looking at this application, would you guys have hired me?

    I especially find the last little bit about Yahoo IM to be comical. It's crazy to think about me using YIM/AIM/MSN. It's been so long.

    I totally remember you but as 2787cmt. I think you may have worked on a couple of my forums way back when, but I'm not too sure. Maybe we just did a load of exchanges together.
    But looking at all that experience, I would totally give you a shot.

    Had to dig this little blast from the past out, but here's a screen cap from early 2013; before I was even brought onto the team.

    Crazy. Where has the time gone? I feel really old, and I don't like it.

    Also, I have some very interesting applications in my box lol.

    Cameron, was I PTLA when you were hired? Or was that after I left? Honestly cannot remember. I think there is a topic somewhere in the Staff forums that may shed light on that.

    Seriously, it's wild.

    I have some interesting applications from my stint as CTL too and some weird ones just from general shenanigans. Don't even get me started on some of the old CT arguments / reminder backlash!! Too cute. @Quacker Jack

    This was before my time, but i recall you said you were PTLA around then, so I'd assume so. Petition to allow access to the staff archives!! @Cameron Taylor

    I loved when FP was on phpBB. I miss that theme.

    @agentmanningctu was PTLA at the time. You replaced me when I was fired from the PT, but I believe that was your second time on the PT. I assume you became PTLA after Agent was promoted to RTL, since that position opened up when @thedudeman was promoted to Admin.

    Yeah, I probably would. 10 packages would be enough to satisfy the requirements.

    Greatest CT ever was QJ as the leader with Gray & myself on the team.
    That was when the whole staff went to Frozen usernames & avatars.

    Also, can't argue with this...

    Who was QJ and when did he join? Plus, why did the whole staff team go into Frozen usernames and avatars? :joyful:

    QJ Is Quacker Jack.
    It's been a while...4 years? Maybe longer.
    e: I don't know how to read. That says "why" not "when" lol. We did it just for fun. I think I was Sven if I remember correctly.

    Ah, that makes sense. That sounds right.

    :O

    Cody! Hi! Seriously, long time no talk. It was a kickass time. How's life been?

    I started around 2009 or 2010 and I was an admin back in 2014, was CT for a longggg time. See my signature if you are curious how long I've been around.

    Life's been crazy. Moved out to California for 2 years for my job, but just recently moved back to Utah as I have a baby coming in about a month.
    How has it been for you?

    Remember when nearly everyone quit on sean? haha. Well, wasn't so funny, but you got to admit it took him not too long after that to decide to sell the forum.

    Better yet, I found my resignation regarding that whole matter a few days ago when Gray and I were joking about a few things. Maybe I'll post that in one of the RA/VC forums, it is kind of hilarious lol.

    It's crazy that FP lived on. Of course, all of us that left were eventually back on the staff team at some point. Some of waited until Nerdie sold the forum, of course.

    Congratulations Cody! That's great news.

    You're saying FP was on MyBB?
