Name?

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

I'm not surprised though. But now it does feel like that connection's broken.
It's weird, I never really expected it to die. I thought that anytime I could open up Ponychan there'd be Adl bumping the thread.
It's not like everyone's died, though. I still have people on Steam. But I'll miss Adl.

He'd said, around five or six years ago, that he'd buy himself a poster if he ended up being the last person in /space/.
I hope he'll get himself that poster.

Hi there nice to see you.

I noticed spacetime's timing out and i miss it and adlbay (sp) and feel i shoulda hung out there more.

Ive been thinking about it a bit actually.

Hullo. You'll forgive me, I don't know how often we talked. I get confused with all the different people and different names. One friend I'd had in /space/ had at least a dozen personas, each with a different name each.

It's funny, I got Adl's real name written down somewhere, but I got no idea how to reach him.
Best I can do is not forget /space/ and it's people, though. I reckon my time in space led me to follow what I wanted to major in, and I am a better person because of that.

Thinking about it, there has been a lot that's come and gone on these boards. I remember there being a Tulpa general. That was a really interesting thread. I'm glad I talked to them about it once. Not a lot of people know what a tulpa is.
A ton of generals have come and gone. I remember the Donut Bar or something. Story threads. Developing a roleplay story with friends and having people come in and out. How some users on MLPchan would make magic things happen when someone got a 666, 777, or 888.
Goddamn, this place has really been through a lot. I wish I remembered more.

He really was. I am lucky to have talked to him as much as I did. In the end though, I didn't have the energy for it, for massive text walls like I used to be able to do. I felt more and more like my time on here was just wasted. But I did like talking to him a lot. It's why I kept coming back. He wrote a couple of short fiction stories to start off /space/ threads too that were genuinely hilarious. I should've saved them.
I really can't believe the thread's gone. It must've been one of the oldest on the site. It's like the /ooc/ thread we'd had. That's gone.
Now the general's gone. I keep thinking maybe there's an archive or something, but no. In this day and age, I'm not used to there being absolutely nothing that can be done.
I would have loved to see the last post, I really would have.

Oh, I dip in and out every couple of months to see how the site's doing. I keep saying I'll never come back, but it's inevitable. I've got too much attachment to this place, and I come back, even if it's just for a little bit.

Kinda wish he'd posted more on the rest of the site too. It's sad that when /spacetime/ time was gone, he was gone with it.

But I guess he probably wasn't as interested in political textwalls as he was in philosophical and scientific ones.

Hehe, I was gonna say the same sorta thing to you. You do seem happier.

But I feel like if I don't try to make myself better, I won't get better. And I've spent years trying, and I feel better. I'm excited to think that, if I'm okay with myself today, I'll be a better person in 5 years. Because every five years, you think the person you were was an idiot.

Am I and oldfag, a newfag, or just a fag?

I think i talked to you maybe once or twice after i posted a bit about how the brain works, i think how it stores memories and maaybe the stream of consciousness. You seemed pretty cool too.

Oh and in general ive only been lost pony though i've posted Pinklestia once or twice.

Pretty good, I got a job and worked there for about 8 years, helped take the company from a hole in the wall to one of the biggest sports equipment retailers in the state, then i just quit about 5 months ago.

Pony friends became room mates, trips and moves across the country were made, they split got a house, and a dog... whole crazy life, just still trying to figure out what i want to be when i grow up i guess haha.

Do you even remember me? I would totally understand if you dont I didnt talk much back when, but im pretty sure i made that same trapper joke at you a few times way long ago.

>>42081290

You were the ONLY person who made that Trapper joke, and I remember the times that you did. In fact, wasn't the first time WAY back near the beginning of the site? Like in March of 2011?

We never talked much, but you were one of those names that I saw around so often that I felt like I knew you. Isn't it kind of funny how that happens? Like, we shared a social space for years but rarely had a one-on-one conversation ourselves.

That's awesome to hear about the store! Well done! I'm hoping to do that myself with this new gig that I started a month ago. Just joined a fast-growing startup and am building their analytics team. Fingers crossed that we can make things happen. It's super promising.

Any thoughts on where you want to go next?

I think i got here like July or August of 2011, i remember browsing the site on my phone durring a hurricane.
It was right around the time we got that "Colbert bump" haha.

That sounds really exciting! Start ups and small business are the coolest to work with. So you're head of the team i take it? Do you just yell "Analytics team: Assemble!" and they come? Or is it more of a browse indeed for resumes kinda thing? :P

Idk exactly where i go from here, driving for lyft atm. I got a corporate job for a bit... That didnt last long, i hated it. Im trying to get a position with the environmental agency as a field tech, and im thinking i might go back to school in the fall, but who knows what might come up.

Im also falling asleep so i might not respond right away.

Right now building the analytics team basically means being a five person team while also recruiting so that the other four people aren't other versions of myself.

And no worries, I'm off to bed myself. It's been fun catching up! I'll check back in tomorrow.

Aced the pronouns! Thank you! The analytics that I'm doing is around financial data. We have an app that tries to help poor folks manage their finances and get access to earned wages without resorting to payday loans. Before this I was at Facebook for a couple of years. That was a trip. Facebook is weird and kinda cult-y. It's nice to be working with regular people again.

That sounds pretty amazing, any dent that can be put into payday loans and give them honest competition is a good thing.
