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.

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 this site back in 2007 (even before I had a Facebook account) then left when I got into a serious relationship (long story).

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.

I joined because living in South Africa meant cultural isolation for a then 18-year-old self-proclaimed emo kid. I was looking for friendship, for love, for respect and essentially for a sense of belonging.

I adored the chatrooms, I treated them as social events. I'd do my make up, wear something nice, ensure I had a drink or two nearby, and spend my weekends socialising via webcam. It was so great although in retrospect perhaps I could have tried a little harder to physically go out of my room and mingle.

Mid 2004 or something like that. All in that typical goth like phase and interested in Satanism lol. This girl I liked convinced me to make a profile on here and I had actually found a nice group of people I could interact with. I had listened to The Cure already and then found Fields of the Nephilim and then later discovered bands like KMFDM, Combichrist, Feindflug, and VNV Nation. Spent a remainder of my teen years and early adulthood on here. I keep coming back hoping it'll go back to chat rooms, even if it's irc, I keep coming back because of some friends.

I've actually been coming since waaay back when. Back when they put up pages for specific members and there were no public profiles. I was too chicken to try and join until public profiles came about. I was probably 14 at the oldest at that time, so I guess it's been about...oh god, almost 16 years at least. I just realized I've had VF for longer than I've been without it.

I met my fiancee on here. Lots of memories, I guess. lol

A friend reccomended to me a few years ago, since she used to promote her band on here.

Just now getting around to signing up, since they few other websites I checked out just didn’t have to same feel to them.
