The fact you have your own business that brings in over $50,000 a month (especially still at your age..assuming you're younger or around 30) is fucking unbelievable. Good work man!

Holy shit haha. To think I've been on here myself for almost 3 years is incredible. I seldom post anymore although I do check the site at least once a week, but I feel this place will always be THE forum and the community I like to be part of. I've met some of you, and some I hope I will meet in the future, to talk about AVA and life and whatnot. Thanks to you guys for 3 of the coolest years and hopefully once AVA is active again then we'll all be back here daily.

Dude I remember the original post about your first kid. The support this forum showed you was proof of how cool this place really is. Crazy it's been that long.


yea man that was one crazy time in my life. I received a lot of support, and some ppl blasted me for being Christian, but everything turned out :)

Thanks man. I'm 23. It's been a lot of work, and a lot of finding out who I am as a person (and sometimes I still don't even know lol) Things have def been crazy for me over the past 5 years as I sit back and reflect on everything that's happened. Gone from being in HS to having my own house, business, and I'm married w/ 3. It's just amazing.

I'm currently living in my native country, the Dominican Republic, in my last year of high school and counting down the days until school is over so I can go back to Italy for university. I really don't like it here, but my parents and sister really wanted to move back here last year so I had to come too. Spent last summer in Italy, traveled a lot and saw lots of concert so that was amazing, but it ended as soon as it started and I'm back here. Hopefully June will come by in a blink of an eye and I'll graduate haha.

How are you doing?

I still visit here most days. I have had a great time over the last 5 years on this forum getting to share ideas and thoughts on an amazing band.

I was just listening to my iPod on shuffle and A Little's Enough and It Hurts (live from Guitar Centre) came on and it inspired me to get back on here and post.

Am still a big fan of the music, but like a few on here the Love albums left me a little underwhelmed - still really enjoy the Love era music, but it doesn't have the impact of WDNTW and I-Empire for me. Diary on the other hand is an incredible song, absolutely brilliant - and it gives me a lot of hope for their new work when it comes out.

Hi to everybody! I will always have a soft spot for this place - this place and the members are pretty special!

Wow, I've been on here for 4+ years, or 5, I'm not sure. I think I was in grade 10 when I joined. Looking back at 15-16-17 year old me, I probably said some really dumb shit on here. I never come back here but the past couple days I've lurked around. Anyways, nice to see some familiar faces still posting! Bummer that the sites died down.

Anyone remember that day a bunch of us played black ops on Xbox like 3 years ago? hahaha. time flies.

I also remember sitting on the computer the night before my senior year of highschool started, typing out some massive thread on here about how time flies...that was over 2 years ago now. Holy fuck.

And now I'm laying in bed listening to the live Down/The Adventure mix from the 06 tour that I downloaded off here way back...OHH THE FEELS. Haven't heard this in ages. FUCKING NOSTALGIA.

Aw I miss you guys too :wub:

Great thread Adam. It makes me feel all fuzzy inside to hear what this site has done for you and everyone else. I am so thankful for everyone who has posted here. Without the ongoing input of passion, humour and energy from you guys this place would not be around today.

I had a big hopes when starting this site, but I still could not have imagined so many people buying into it like you guys have. It's exactly the message Tom was shouting from the beginning, don't let anyone tell you what you can or can't do, really can achieve almost anything if you have enough passion.

I am such a better person because of the people of this site and the response we've received. You all gave me a reason to learn how to design a website and forum, and then rebuild a better one. You helped me become better at writing posts, debating, managing trouble, being more respectful. You've given me the confidence to trust myself, trust my decisions, and trust that there are brilliant people out there. I really wonder whether I would be able to do my current job and grow like I am if it wasn't for you all.

The future
I think ultimately the future activity of the site depends on the output from AVA. We've got a new album coming up so we can expect a lot of old and new faces popping up soon. Yay.

I'm going to push for a closer relationship with official site. Can't promise anything but I think both the fans and the band could benefit from this. I am prepared to put the effort in.

Thank you guys.
*English accent* I want to kiss you all on the bum cheeks.
