Why did you join VF?
forum VF Site
Just curios what you guys' motivations were. I joined because, the subculture obviously, and this super cute guy I saw while browsing around. Pretty sure I already fucked that up though, haha.

I joined VF when I was 15 (I'm 28 now), deleted my account years ago because I was in a pretty toxic relationship at the time. Came back now because I wanted to see what was new, maybe reconnect with my goth / industrial roots a bit. :-)

I joined at first long ago on another profile during my teen years back in the 90s and early 00 era. Reason being was because I simply had enough of the small minded people in the real world around me. Just to be able to have been sensed as a human being was a good motivation to join this weird but wonderful little corner of the net. As to where it leads I will not be certain until I see the true reason out side of the facts mentioned. And yes small town Ohio is a blight on open mindedness which is why i rarely to never go out.

I think I was 14 or so, so it would have been around 2001 or 2 (I'll have to dig through my HDD that has screenshots of the 948238039 or so deletions I would get back in those days for trolling). Basically my best friend at the time found this website and said we should join it because there were hot girls on it. Being 14 year old boys, we both made profiles. I stuck around on and off through the years because I enjoyed being a trolling little shit and I've met some people that I still talk to today in my 30s. I was never really into the goth thing or industrial, so none of that resonated with me, but I did love black metal and it was cool to have a place to talk to others that enjoyed somewhat alternative interests.

I joined in 2004, so I was 18. I had a friend who told me to open an account and yeah, I got rid of most of my old social media accounts, but this one I never want to delete, even if the username I chose at the time was pretty stupid haha. I made so many friends here, met so many nice people, even a couple of lovers hump, it was nice to have other goth/metal friends besides the very close and awfully toxic circle of alternative people in my small country.

VF was in the perfect time and place to capitalize on early 2000s teen angst.

its a great place to hangout and meet people with hopefully similar interests and cool liberal personalities, because lets face it, you're not going to meet cool people in real life are you #makeamericagreatagain #buildthewall #buymusicdontdownload #nomeansno #MTV

Vermin assured me that [quote]"you'll be up to your eyeballs in overly eye-liner'd poontang."[/quote]

granted, this was in 2010, shortly after my divorce. I never did get any of this overly eyeliner'd poontang that he claimed I would, but one could say that I did way better than I ought to have.

I suppose further explanation may be merited. I ended up dating Tiffany, of RT admin fame for several years.

in the interim i've gone from toeing the line of relevance to actually being old. Damn kids on my damn lawn. what's with this kinder, gentler VF anyways?

Everyone who still hangs around is old and we're too tired to be dicks anymore since some of us are getting AARP memberships now.

I joined to meet fellow goths, make new friends, and maybe find some cool people to hang out with in real life too.
...I only got the first part so far.

I joined in 2007 at the beginning of my edgy teen years, fell in love with layouts and taught myself the basics. I have this site to thank for my passion for front end dev. Currently here out of nostalgia and sad to see the graveyard.

omg! ive had this account for soo long, haha. Started when I was 14 (im 25 now). Back then I was the only "emo kid" at my school and wanted to find like-minded peers. havent been on much in recent years but I used to love this site and would often come here for the chatrooms, i liked the chats and video chats better than other sites because i felt a little safer for reasons of being judged and also i didnt feel everyone on here was like pervey. Something about this site just makes it different from like facebook and other social media sites cause its like you can just be yourself and no one hates you for being different. Was very helpful as a young person to have this kind of outlet, along with other such ones like my youtube channel. Gave me a sense of belonging.

I joined, heck, back around 2001 or so. My account wasn't active anymore. No biggie. A friend of mine mentioned the site in a random conversation and I decided to come back and see what was up. I'm very impressed with the site so cheers to the admins and staff. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Some mallgoth I dated in highschool talked me into signing up. For some reason, I've since never left.
