    Hey everyone,
    I'm a day late in posting this, but yesterday was my 6th year anniversary of playing CTF. I figured I'd take this time to say how thankful I am to have had this community and gamemode in my life (dispite the toxic players, and others with perpetual negative attitudes).

    I'll start by saying that when I was younger, I wasn't really accepted by classmates (when I was in public school) socially because I liked Pokemon, was female, and didn't wear "standard/normal" girl clothes. This caused me to be a bit timid in terms of talking to people. And once my parents decided to homeschool me (for reasons unrelated to myself), I didn't have many opportunities to make friends for a while.

    Several years down the road, I had made a few friends in real life and I joined CTF on November 28th, 2013. I started to talk with more people and try to make friends with players on the server. These friends, along with CTF teams, allowed me to consistently be with people that had the same interests as I did. I started to come out of my shell a bit, and I slowly became a more confident person in general. I still struggled with some of this for a few years after I joined, but it was way better than being made fun of a Pokemon shirt I liked to wear. I don't know where I would be without this community. <3

    So that's a bit of my story I wanted to share with you guys. Now I'd like to know what you've appreciated about CTF and/or the community (or anything Brawl related works too). We always hear complaints and how everything is dying, but hearing the other side of that would be refreshing. =D

    TL;DR what are some things that you've gained from playing on here that you can take some time to appreciate? ;P
    I just have one request - no negativity/sarcasm about the game/community please. I'm genuinely curious, and I figure once in a while these sorts of posts can be nice.

    Thanks for reading, I love you guys <3 Happy holidays.

    I had a similar situation when I was younger too Wintur! Except I was homeschooled my whole life until highschool, so you could say ctf helped me prepare for something completely different than what I was used to...And I always come back to this game because of the people <3

    </3 My parents.
    They're becoming more and more restricting all the time, and it's gotten harder to do anything I want to do on a regular basis. I should still cut some time out to stream, though. I'll see what I can do.

    ****, it's been another year? Damn, time flies.

    Well whilst my will to play this game has largely went away, this community has been a place where I've met some truly great people in a time of my life when I didn't have many friends IRL. I definitely won't be forgetting many of you any time soon, for either good or bad (mostly good) memories. It's a really toxic community, yeah, but aren't they all? There's still a ton of really nice people here, and I feel bad that I haven't been able to get to know very well the majority of them.

    Also, you're like 19 or 20 or something now idk exactly, but you're an adult, you don't need to be restricted by your parents anymore. Go out and live life to its fullest (or stay here and live CTF to its fullest, it's up to you).

    Oh yeah, and my maths may be wrong but 2018-2013=5.

    @Deppuccino Yep, I'm 20, going on 21. Trying to get my GED so I can move out/eventually go to college and not have to worry about these things anymore. They're just not making it easy for me to do it lol but I'll get there soon.

    Knowing that some people actually genuinely look out for you even if you're not active or relevant to the community anymore. Still remember when @RTKno1 pmed me on the forums asking how things were going out of no where even when the last time we talked was like 2015. Thanks bro

    just wanted to point that out

    but either way, five or six years, thats over 1,825 days to be happy/proud about. When I said as to why I find it interesting how so many of us in the community are real people who are in college or have a job or have something really to actually do in their life, I was sort of saying that in a way like "so people who have actual lives and have actual things to do decide to spend their time on minecraft capture the flag," but hearing what you said I think differently. It seems that through this community, you have actually built as a real person and as a working member of society.

    And to answer the question on what I have gained here on this server / game: a lot but also not a lot. Of course in terms of entertainment and whatnot, I've gained a lot, but in my life as a person on the internet, I would probably say that most of my experience (and learning the hard way) came from a different forum / minecraft community. But, perhaps it has given me a different personality away from the real world, like a persona. (cue Last Surprise) Like how everyone sorta does something beyond school or their job, like how people might lowkey be a music producer or something.

    Anyways, that's all, and congratulations again on your anniversary

    hey my six year is coming up this christmas im p sure can i make something like this jk now i sound narcisstic kthxbai
