I was never adopted on here. I think it had to do with that fact that I spammed up the Adoption Thread in 2005, asking to be adopted. I eventually wore myself out and stopped. Then I figured I didn't need an adopter.
However, I adopted many people on here. The people I adopted were Dr. Cheese/Midge (He's inactive, but I still talk to him on MSN sometimes.), Snake2021 (I think that was his name, but he changed it...so many times to keep track of. I think he went inactive.), Sakaki-chan (She's still active.), DaemonSage420 (He went inactive.), and Nightwing (I'm not too sure what happened to him.) I may or may not have adopted some other people, but I could only recall these users.
I no longer adopt new forum members.
Just remember 'til you're home again, you belong to me.
I don't know if adoption existed when I joined. In any case, I wasn't adopted, and I haven't ever adopted anyone. I'm not really sure on what I would do as an adopter. I understand the concept, I just don't know how I would really...go about being a good adopter I guess.
You would be an excellent adopter, Galedeep. All that's really required is a positive attitude, the ability to communicate effectively, and your willingness to help somebody else who has questions or needs help.
Yeah, that sounds like a plug for the program, but I like the program.
Oh... at first I thought you were talking about real adoption. No I was not adopted because I never wanted to be. Its true I might have gotten more used to my first joined forum adopted but I just didn't find it cool then. Maybe one day I'll adopt but that means I'll have to be a bit more active.
But yeah, I went inactive for a few months, and he dropped me. By the time I got back, I as just as good of a poster as I was before; in the beginning, I just needed a push more than anything, heh.
I've adopted a few kids, too, but let them go pretty quickly. In my mind, if they're not coming to you with questions that often, they're well off on their own, and friendship doesn't need an adoptive title.
I kinda stopped with the whole adopting thing. Seems that they're mostly smart enough to figure things out. I may a bit later, though. Just haven't felt like it.
