    As you may or may not know back in (2016 i think), when I officially joined the HIVE. I've made thread about venturing into history of the site through Wayback machine(i should revive the 'series' as i've abandoned it), but that's not the point, the point is that ever since then I've been curious about people's expierence of the HIVE back then, and while it's fun to read old comments and threads from the day, I'd like to hear (or in this case read) what it was like for you.
    And it doesn't matter when you joined, I just want to hear what it was like at the time of your joining. As for my first time as memeber of HIVE, well the only thing different i guess would be site's design and amount of people and projects they strive to complete. And I joined for two major reasons; first I've been using HIVE for sometime already, and second; I actually was part Mario makerish (it had its own 'Mario Maker') site, but Nintendo shut it down so I had to move on to something greater and something that wasn't on it's death bed, so HIVE and Warcraft community became my 'new home' of sorts.

    When I started lurking few years ago we have Icon Moderators with actual skills that inspire people. It's mindblowing really, almost a miracle.

    it had a group of 4chan shitlords posing as the site's elite called "the jury of awesomeness"

    it was so cringy and kind of cool at the same time, though the group's leader, captain griffin was really a huge faggot

    I wonder what's up with to those niqqas at this point

    also it had a well respected, old admin called wolverabid who was kinda the most helpful dude I ever met

    and a literal elf called elenai and a dragon furry called pyrite

    and a weird aussie vampire chick called werewulf

    also I might have unknowingly befriended someone who I assume eventually ended up in the islamic state

    hmmm fun times

    Back in 2013, it was primitive.

    Am I supposed to remember what I did in 2007? If nothing else, I remember names. Beyond that, the alcohol has done its job and removed most of the memories in the memory bank.
