    Way to go Accname! Thanks for posting your history! I really hope more members will do this! I am very interested in hearing the stories of how you guys came here and why you stayed around for all these years. I am going to add a section on the Site History Sticky about this if more members post stuff.

    Seeing as The Helper wants to know, I first came here asking for help in 2010, things like changing your name in warcraft 3, and other small things. I never did publish the maps I was making... I just got bored of them. I then became actively involved in helping others, as I learned in knowledge and... well the World Editor.

    Then I left, I had forgotten about TheHelper.net. I was mostly playing Ruenscape and barely ever on Warcraft. Then I logged into Warcraft III because I got bored of RS. And then I decided to start making another map... And then I remembered just the place: TheHelper.net.

    I decided to help more activily this time, and under a new account name, which is what I still use.

    I was asking questions I wasn't sure about, solving questions I could answer... And leaving the rest. I was mostly in the Warcraft III World Editor zone, too scared to go anywhere else. I vaguely knew who TheHelper was. After a few months back, I left. It was about the end of August when I left.
    I went to Minecraft, and I played it till I got bored which was about early 2012, and late 2012 came the worst update to possibly ever happen to RS, so I quit. They had gone over a code they used. "We don't want our users to be-able to buy theirselves into the game." They were doing just that when they decided that being able to buy tickets for Squeel of Fortune would be the best thing that they did. I quit because that made the game boring, alot of people would be sure to come. I found my way back to Warcraft 3 and Map Editing.

    I then found my way back to TheHelper, which was late 2012/early 2013. Then I left a gaphole for a while, until a month back, I am more active in more areas of the forum. I then discovered that The Helper was a user as well as the creator of TH. I thank him for making such a website.
    It was also in 2012 that I "discovered" Youtube, which I made an account and watched videos, subbed to people I liked etc.

    Well... This has been an excedlingly long post which I don't think anyone will bother reading, and if you read it, post in this thread your history.

    Give it time. People will post there stuff eventually. We have some serious lurkers here. There are about 50 helpers though, many here now but alot more that started in 2005 when we first started the Special Membership where you could change the title below your avatar.

    These guys were in it from the beginning and I would LOVE to hear there take on those years.

    I am going to eventually add on to the Special Memberships page of the Site History, a list of those 1st group of Special Members. If they post there stories they will be added to the official stories section of the Site History. I sure hope I get some of those stories because I know alot of those people are lurking, maybe not every day, every week or month, but I know they still drop by.

    I did not see 2003 -2004 that would put you pre Special Members before I got back involved with the site. Darg and Wargasm days.

    can't say i was ever really involved with the community here, but ^^^ asked me to make a post, so I did

    wow, my account is 8 years old

    joined as a kid for advice on war3 modding, got lots of useful advice, made some posts typical of a kid

    learned my first programming language here (and at hive I guess, can't remember)

    I remember I always preferred vJASS systems at thehelper instead of the ones at hive or wc3c when choosing systems to include in my unfinished map, no idea why, considering that nestharus' coding style should have been made a bannable offense

    Yeah, can remember darg and wargasm. Back then I was using a different account though because I lost my account information.

    When I joined ~7 years ago, I was a complete WEHZ noob, but by the time AH left, I was actually OK with the editor, and then I more or less stuck around as TH grew on me..

    that's more or less it for me.... I wasn't ever a mod or anything special
