It's been 10 years...

I joined this forum a decade ago this month. A lot has changed since then, but one thing that has remained constant is the fact that I keep coming back here for my daily entertainment, news stories, and some car information.

Back when I joined, I was but a lowly high school student with a car I didn't deserve and could very well have killed me. Luckily, I was responsible for the most part with the car and still have it (and my life). Now I have a PhD and am getting married in less than 3 months, and you guys have been with me the whole way. Thanks for all the laughs and the information, for giving me advice when I needed it and when I didn't, and for keeping me up to date on world news, pop culture, and the latest automotive technologies.

I hope to stay here for the next ten years, and hopefully a few of you will stick around too.

Been 7 years here but I lurked for a little bit before that. Crazy how our lives have changed and you're right, OT is a good place to come back to over and over. It has changed quite a bit. Gone through some ups and downs that's for sure.

Feeling nostalgic all of a sudden. Haven't been around as long as some of you but e46 is definitely in the top 3 sites I frequent. More than even Porn, O_O.

I just turned 27 last month, how old are you? And may have a PhD but I'm far from a stable/normal job lol, I'm still in the "transitional" period.

9 years here, I remember seeing lots of people at the beginning who are still on here, even if they don't have e46s anymore. It's a cool thing, online communities like this
