Well hello new pony peoples!

I joined the MLPTP way back when it used to be a different web address, in around 2001.

I've been away from the community for ages, my ponies got packed up around 3 years ago when I moved in with my boyfriend and we had to move to a rented home in London for his work... rented = not allowed shelves!!!

We are moving into our first real home soon and I will at last have my very own pony room so I'm rather excited about re-joining in with the pony community.

Though I was wondering who was still around from way back when! Seen a few people around I remember, hoping Kar Red Roses who was posting around in July is back sometime, spoken to a couple of others like Tikibirds... but *sniffs* I don't seem to see many others!

So, any oldbie members going to step up and help relive some memories?

Well, I'm old as of 2008... is that old enough for ya? XD Though I've been customizing since 2005... :winkpony:

I bet it's something else to be a part of a place, then several years later have it be something almost entirely different/new. :smilepony:

I think I was still active in 2008, I think it was around 2009 I drifted off.... whenever the G3's became weird shaped and not actually G3's anymore! *laughs*

I'm sorry though I don't recall your name :surprisepony:

I am looking forward to getting to know some new people, I'm just super curious as to who is still around from the MLPTP Before Time!

What up, fellow oldbie?! I've been around since... there was somewhere to be around online! I don't remember you specifically but that doesn't mean we can't be new friends! :smilepony:

There are quite a few of us old TP timers lurking around but it seems collectively, we just don't post as much, anymore.

I'm pumped about your pony room! I finally got one when me and the hubby moved about 1.5 years ago. So much fun!

What do you collect? I'm guessing G1s but do you do variants, accessories, crazy about sea ponies?

HI there, nice to (re?)meet you! It would be nice to connect with some "older" collectors in all senses of the word! *laughs*

Yes, I collect G1 and G3, I have a complete set of UK ponies, and a fair whack of the Euro exclusives as well. I collect foreign and weird variants as well. MOC pony wear and neat pony related merchandise as well.

I am super excited about my pony room, we are just in the process of buying a 6 bedroom house... so my husband gets a dedicated office and I get a pony room. Going to paint it like dream castle... and finally have space to house my Illuminations pony and get it out of my parents house! They are going to be pretty pleased with that.

:LOL:

Ah nice to see you baby fizzy and I love you still have your old "blinkie" like me as well!

I think I might be getting some humouring smiles from my husband at my excitement at being back in the fun.

Goodness I've had it since 2001/2 I think, I cannot recall who made it... I know who helped me with the terribly hard html to get it in my signature and who hosted the image *laughs* as we are still amazing friends.

But not sure who made mine, not the same person as Baby Fizzy's I don't think.

Oh Pookie's blinkie now that takes me back who use to do those was it one of the European girls? I keep thinking Lovely Tickle or Roz but it wasn't either of them. I don't believe.

Pookie I joined the TP in 2001 too, but I have always been very quiet. I remember you though. There are a few olbies about but on the whole we're a quiet lot. :) Welcome back and how exciting a pony room and a bub coming. Can't wait for photos on both counts.

Pinwheel made my blinkie. It was a big scandal back them because she charged people $10 to do them. lol

I am indeed expecting! Cub is due February 13th.

We are living in London at the moment for my (now) husband's job, but since its mostly based online in a virtual office, he can keep it and we can move back to our families, so we have the support, and living in a nicer place as well, back right on the coast, 2 minutes walk from the beach!

Have lovely plans for the babies nursery as well, its frustrating, I'm doing things the wrong way around, should be doing all that physical stuff now, and cute shopping later, but since we can't move yet it will all be the other way around!

*waves*

I haven't really seen that many old school people on here lately. You might have better luck finding them on the arena...or the ghetto, if that forum still exists??

I think I joined in 2001 as well?? it was back when the forum was on EZ board and it cost money or something like that.

*laughs* as the Arena approaches it's 10th birthday (I remember the consults about what was wanted) I still think of it as "the new board" and the Trading Post where I started out, I never felt part of the Arena as much as I did here. I might pop over and see though.
