Cool For Whoever to See, Hello!

I'm not sure if the people that are still logging into this website (or lurking) are people I've ever spoken to before but, hello, I'm "Drew"!

I came online tonight obviously out of nostalgia. I was looking through an old PhotoBucket account and found tons of photos of my bearville characters, bears I've made in the workshop, and even screenshots of my favorite conversations with friends on this forum and others that aren't active anymore. I've tried logging into this account so many times but I had forgotten the password until recently I started remembering things and people I'd like to forget and poof! it just came to me and now I'm here.

I have my VM's closed, thankfully I remembered how to do that, because of how cringey I was as a kid. I was like 14 talking all kinds of nonsense and I apologize if we ever knew each other LOL. I just remember wanting to be everyone's friend and I really did make some nice ones here, very few I still actually talk to! It's so cool.

My fallout with Bearville... I can't really remember. I know I wasn't there for the end though. Maybe a year after was when I found out that it shut down and I was literally Like wow, how could they DO THIS to my future children LOL. Butttttttttt, my most fond memory would probably have to be when Hurricane Sandy was coming to hit us and I stayed online for as long as I could with my friend, Pina, just talking and talking about how scared we both were. Others would join in on our conversation and hoped we made it out safely. It's probably one of my most fondest memories EVER, honestly.

One thing I really did hate around the time I was still active on this forum was the Links section being filled with "join my forum" posts. I made one too, but I wasn't so desperate for members. (I honestly just wanted to gain more experience in designing my very own forum and having some sort of responsibility over a group+ people) I also really wanted to meet some cool people and I did! I actually became closer with someone I rarely talked to on here but on a different forum. It was pretty awesome, actually! I regret not keeping touch after all that went down because of the forums drama. (and threats to me, from who I thought was a good friend, to shut down my forum "or else" ) The one good thing that came out of it was now I have my own Discord server and I can because of the dumb experience I got through making a forum LOL.

I really do miss what Bearville Insider used to be. I will always appreciate how this forum helped me realize that I really do love designing/editing basically just creating things. I've had my own Signature shop at one point (though I'm sure I barely got orders, I think, but I did start shop on another forum that went pretty well!), I made those funny Bearville music videos, inspired by LindaFriendly, with my own friends, and so much more. I still create to this day and LOVE doing it and it's actually why I'm awake at 4am, LOL. I do also really miss the people. I remember certain friends logging off for forever at certain points in time and being real sad about it because I wasn't the best at making friends/keeping conversation. I'd like to think I'm better at that now, though.

Anyways! I hope everyone here is well! If it turns out that no one here knew who I was back then, then hello! And thank you for being a member here. ♥
