Now and then: CDC

Recommended Posts

Been on since 2005. Was 23 at the time. About to turn 36.

 

Moved from Langley shortly after joining in 2005 back to Manitoba with the wife. Had our first child (daughter) back in October 2016.

 

Changed jobs several times. Was really loving my job for the last 2 years, up until the last 4 months, as there is a lot of uncertainty in the company. Morale throughout is very, very low. Everyone has their ears to the ground. Very demoralizing.

I originally joined in 2004 when I was attending junior high school. As a young and immature poster on this forum, my original account was banned (all I did was repeatedly say "Linden sucks" in a thread :lol:) and I rejoined with this account in 2006. I've been on CDC for a total of 14 years, which is over half the time that I've been on this planet.

 

Since I've been posting on this forum, I've finished high-school, university, and I've gotten engaged in recent months (tying the knot in 2019). I have basically "grown up" here. I would consider myself a die-hard Canucks fan, so I love to come on here every day to not only kill time, but keep up to date on everything that goes on with this team. I find a lot of enjoyment reading posts, contributing to all the different threads, and sharing the same passion that most of us have for the Canucks. Of course, I also enjoy the occasional absurd post from young members on the board, which reminds me of how I used to be when I first started posting on this forum (not that I've changed too much).

 

Oh yeah.. and somehow when CDC switched to a new forum style in 2015 or so, I lost 6000+ posts...

Hmmmm, I think it was right after the Hawks-Canucks line brawl at the United Center in 2009 that I decided to stop by and see what the Vancouver fans were saying about the fight.  Needless to say, most of you guys were talking so bat s@*& crazy I couldn't stop laughing....

 

....aaaaaaannnnnnddddd, I've been coming back ever since.

I came here out of sheer boredom at work.  One of the few sites that wasn't blocked on the work pc and posted mostly in the NHL15 thread back when OTP was enjoyable.  Not much has changed since 2013, still bored!

Hated computers, but finally gave in and got an iPad.  (wife insisted) Searched up "hockey trade rumors Canucks".  Found this site.  Tried to join, but couldn't figure out how.  Got son (he's a teacher) to sign me up.  Only been here a short while, but really miss every poster who we don't have any more:(    Love the hockey talk, and other forums' chatter too. Found out, over time, people can be nasty to one another on the Internet.  I had no clue people would be like that.  Find that sad.:(

Wow, so much has happened in my life since I joined the boards because I joined in April of 2003!!!

 

- I was 17 (wow) and it was playoff hockey, joined JUST because there was a trash talk forum where you could go and banter with Wild or Blues fans! It was great!

- Dated a couple girls from the forums, we used to have White Noise meets, so it wasn't exactly out of the ordinary!

- I took a year of trades school at UCFV in Abbotsford in 2005.

- Joined the Army in 2006.

- Moved all around Canada for my job, didn't post as much during the 2006-2007 time frame but lurked.

- Even since bouncing around with careers, i've usually checked CDC daily.

- Pretty cool being able to give back to the community as a mod (I don't really do much besides pin some topics or the odd user report) but I wear it with a badge of honor, i've been around these forums for multiple platform/color scheme/design changes...feel like an old man around here now!

 

Don't know why I did it all in point form, probably because I was so sick of writing proper essays!

 

A picture of me at 17 I posted on these forums: Hahahaha....I miss my hair!

Picture of Myself with 2 other forum members who probably don't post anymore, and if they do, they have alts! This was the day before I signed the dotted line:

A picture of me at 32...a few mornings ago: Aged like a fine box of wine.

I have spent almost half of my life as a member on these forums, I find that a little sad...but also cool even though it's nerdy. F off...i'm a nerd.

 

Edit: Sorry about the non-censored man nipples.

Yes...White Noise Meats. Is that BB44?  I know the girls real name(don't want to say on here) but can't remember her forum name.  I think it was Canucks0327437 or something like that.

I joined in 2003 back when I was 23. No idea the reasoning for joining, probably just to discuss Canucks hockey with people. If twitter was around back then I wonder if I'm as active on here as I was back then. 

 

Like diesel, I also attended a couple WN meets and even met diesel at one of them.  White Noise became very popular back in the day, but they had to shut it down. So someone made a website called towelpower.net and a whole bunch of us merged to that site. It lasted a few years, but a lot of those guys on there I still keep in touch with and in fact about 13 of us have been doing a keeper hockey pool for about 10 years now. And meet up sometimes for drinks. 

 

Oh and in this time I had multiple

jobs, multiple girlfriends, but have now had the same job for 12 years and marrried for 9 years.

I made this account in 2009 but I spent a couple years just checking the thread titles on the front page of CDC and read as much as I could. That was before I discovered there were more threads and an entire forum, eventually I figured it out and sheepishly made an account. I hadn't been out of high school long and was making my way in the work force and just trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I'm still doing both of those things really.

 

I post a decent amount but I've always been more of a lurker, especially in the trades/around the NHL/prospect sections. There have been some really knowledgeable posters who've come, gone and even stuck around. I've got a lot of respect for em, I simply don't have the time to dig in to things the way some posters around here do so I appreciate their content. I haven't made any friends or anything really, but I appreciate the personalities kicking around CDC and I've had a lot of fun.

Haha no, that was Terry (real name) and I honestly cannot remember his username.

Ya, she went by canucksfan with a bunch of random numbers then in the WN days she changed it to cfnumbers, I believe.

I remember the Cambie meat! that was a fun night! We met at another one in PoCo at the Foggy Dew (I think it was called that?)

Joined in 2003 but did not post much back then.  Did the majority of my posting on DarkVancouver as I'm a one message board kind of guy.  As Facebook gained popularity, the DarkVancouver forum died as most of the community pretty much moved there (yeah, it's on my list of grievances against Facebook...still not on there).  I was left homeless (forum-wise) so dusted off the account here.  Not sure when that was exactly, I'd guess 2008ish.  But even then I didn't post as much as I do now.  As I've stopped gaming and tv has gotten less interesting, CDC takes up more and more of my screen time.  I'm alright with that, it's a decent and interesting community here.  It also gives me a forum to vent my post-Canuck loss hockey angst (my wife much appreciates that one :P ).
