    There's always going to be the younger generation and it can help forums in some cases.

    I think it's time for me to share my Forum Promotion experience!

    I registered on Forum Promotion in June of 2008. I didn't become active right away, but I did lurk the forum quite a bit. I did not become an active member of the forum until mid-2009 or so. Shortly after I became active on the forum, I was offered a spot on the review team by my good friend @Mike, who was known as CarMadMike back then. Unfortunately, I didn't last long that time due to some unfortunate events that I can't entirely remember. I'm pretty sure it had something to do with being late on a review or something. XD

    Later in 2009, I returned to the review team. I really enjoyed doing reviews, but I decided that I wanted to be on the community team in early 2010. I stayed on the community team for a few months and transferred to the review team. Then, I resigned as a result of some drama with @Kino that I still, quite frankly, feel really bad about because I was totally in the wrong. Luckily, I think Kino and I are cool now. XD

    Later on in 2010, the review team was having some problems, and I decided to apply. I was granted a position by @thedudeman with the condition that it would be the last time that I would be allowed on the staff team. I graciously accepted, and I knew that they were taking a chance on me. After several months on the review team, I became the leader of the content team to try to resurrect the blog. It failed, and so we disbanded the content team. I moved to the community team and eventually became the leader. After several months, I became an admin! I remained an admin until I resigned in early 2013.

    My participation on Forum Promotion has always been motivated largely by the few friends that I've managed to make on here over the years. I guess that's why I keep coming back despite its problems. More recently, I feel that being active on Forum Promotion as a user instead of as a staff member has helped put forums back into perspective for me. I feel that being a staff member on a relatively large forum for so long spoiled me for forums, if that makes any sense. I started to view forums more as a source of stress and negativity than as a source of enjoyment.

    I will stick around on Forum Promotion probably until it is no longer around. I know for a fact that many people do not want me here, some even calling me the forum's biggest enemy. Despite that, I'm participating here because it's a place where I can do what I love: make friends and help people.

    I didn't post much while I was a reviewer, so that's probably why you've never seen any signs of it. :O

    Actually, I advertised a fair amount. It's just that the promotion directory topics and service requests from 2008 and 2009 are largely hidden now. XD
