TODAY, MAY 5th. It's a very special day to me for manyy reasons.
THIS is my 500th post.
TODAY is my 1 year anniversary at ODA.
It WOULD BE me n 1 of my ex's anniversary, so fuck you bitch!
Its also apparently the day napoleon died (creds to kyo)
5/5 is just a badass date anyway, right?
It took A LOT of work for me to get to 500 posts and i even had to resort to spamming like a fluff feg:
I've had such an amazing time with everyone here and I don't know how to show my appreciation to everyone, so i'll start by continuing to work hard as a dedicated member
I thought i'd be cheesy and take a walk down memory lane (Only my memory lane, not oda's as a whole. Sorry i'm being selfish today :c)
so let's do it:https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t1210-weevil-here
The day ODA ! ! ! ! REL1NQUISHED/! ! Weevil Underwood joined oda with no idea what he was in for, at this point he was just stalking kyo with no idea how attached he would actually get to this place. Of course he was given the usual treatment despite how awesome he was. He was forced to test so he decided to use his trollkuri deck against rose who was playing mermails. Game 1 was incredibly intense because rel1n was being a cocky fgt n just admit after a few seconds. Game 2 was intense and lasted about 2 turns or so with a win for rel1n. Game 3 was dull and lasted a bit too long for his taste and was really boring but he still managed to pull a win. So at the end of it all Rel1n was basically guaranteed the highest dorm, but! He was scared that people would begin to overestimate him he pm'd the tester "Slifer plz" and so he lived on as the slifer noob that we all came to love or hate depending on who u r.https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t1430-the-pink-dorm
Only one month in and Weevil has been recognized as an outstanding and loyal member who has managed to work his way into a staff position. This is around the time where he also joined team weenies, created the legendary pink dorm and began to be recognized for his skills with vanilla monsters. This is also where the infamous twiddget began his campaign (Twidd4PrezModGod). Which of course lead to twiddget being banned and a series of very entertaining private messages which i have been so kind as to share:https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t1502-inactivity-check
This is where things began to get bad for our hero weevil. He began to experience the connection issues he's now famous for as well as college applications and all the other bullshit a senior has to deal with. Now what made things worse is how things progressed when it actually reached 7/5/13:https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t1647-leaving-oda
This was about the time where me and gallows had a really stupid fight on chat. Of course as you can tell from the thread, it didn't end well for me. Gallows was given a 24 hr chat ban for an issue he had after the fight with me, and i lost my admin position. So the pressure of keeping up with senior duties and dealing with the bs treatment lead me to just flee~https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t1489-happy-hours-at-oda
So twiddget made a return and i brought this beautiful idea to light because i wanted to make a small contribution. Guys it's also summer so... FREEDOM <3 oda's activity was beautiful and everything was fun and dandy until one day...https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t2030-new-site-owner
Somewhere along the lines of all this i was inactive and i can't really recall the break, (It was around dragon ruler format @_@) And c.c. took charge, you can read my opinions on it on the thread and the staff evaluation page. of course the horrible decision lead to more bs. Gallows was given a staff position, another great decision right? You all know the saying, history is bound to repeat itself or something like that. Well it did, Me and gallows got into another argument in the chatbox. This time the roles were switched, he was the admin and i was the regular member. If we could pull up old chat archives i would love to, i basically just disagreed without using any offensive language while he just kept cursing. You'd think it'd be the same decision right? Demotion and 24 hour ban? Haha, it's c.c. we're talkin about. So gallows kept his position, and I was banned. Then he did a whole bunch of stuff, managed to get himself banned, etc. etc.
10/10/13 <-- Because it's my birthday <3
Nothing goes here because i think i took a leave here due to the c.c. tyranny.
Still c.c. tyranny and dragon rulers, not sure which i hated more.
NEW YEAR NEW ME NEW FORMAT. So i've made a return to the academy i love so much and my first thought is...
Who are these faggots and what are they doing to the site.
No really, i was pretty disapointed in all the changes
What actually brought me back was a message rose sent me about another vanilla duelist at oda. So thanks fluff, your like the only reason i came back.https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t2729-the-revolution-starts-now?highlight=revolution
VIVA LA REVOLUCIONhttps://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t2835-2013-to-be-remembered-member-of-the-year-poll
Oh would you look at that, more bias from c.c. who woulda thought. Anyway this was about the time i found out who's doing what and who's fault everything is. I somehow got a tester position and things were meh. I actually liked the new skype thing that kinda began around this time also, very lovely.https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t3091-new-obelisk-tester
I've kinda established myself as a tester here which is nice and i got to make friends with the new staff, still getting used to it but i like em <3 Of course this is also where nottu dun fuck'd up, but i could write you a REALLY long list of reasons he was an amazing staff member. It was also around oda's prom which was pretty fun for everyone~https://projectduelforums.forumotion.com/t3312-kill-sux-fluff-s-3000th-post
Oh look i'm a moderator, we're getting back up on our feet and everything's going strong. We've establish a much stronger connection between the staff, we've all grown closer together and it actually feels like i'm part of the family again. I also managed to get myself banned on duelingnetwork which is nice, but i managed to have the name penis slide <3
I can't picture ever really leaving this place. You guys have all grown on me, even the ones who are no longer here will always be remembered in my heart. So i'd like to just give a shoutout and honorable mention to a few very special people in my heart~
Kyonaru: The reason i joined, even if your not here anymore faggot
Fluff Fluff: The reason i returned, the other vanilla user who is responsible for keeping oda as lively as it is today.
Ventriloquist: The reason i regained faith, viva la revolucion man.
TheCoolest: The reason i believe anything's possible, come so far in such a short time.
The reason ik i'm not the worst
Your actually a decent duelist but your lucky and that makes you cocky
muh: Idk you just kinda just appeared from nowhere.
Nottu: The reason i became an admin, one of the best staff members ever.
Evil: The one who did most for this academy, even though he's not here too often you guys should NEVER forget how much he did for this place (even if he went crazy)
Sasukat: The reason i managed to work myself back up to tester and then moderator, thank you for the faith <3
Pride: You don't get enough credit, ur always objective and neutral on everything. I don't think i've ever seen you show any bias and for that i think you really do deserve a higher staff position.
Rose: Big sis loves you <3
Ryuk: One of the only members from the old days still here, and he still has an admin position. That should be enough proof of how important you are man.
Kira: Your not here anymore but you were one of the few people i think i could actually have fun dueling.
Gabz and flamez: Your both green, wow.
Rejoice everyone, let's have another amazing year
