My 10 year Newgrounds anniversary!

10 years ago today, 11 year old me signed up to this website to start posting music as well as enormous amounts of mostly dumb commentary. Thanks so much to Newgrounds, especially the audio forum regulars of 2006-2009, for being a delightful and important part of my early teen life.

You totally ignored the Terms of Service for sign-up age! I'll let it slide this time since it's your 10 year anniversary though.

Buoy responds:

Sorry :( I won't do it again, I promise.

Well, it looks like you have been found out.
Congratulations on your ten years. Good to see you back though, even if it isn't often.

(Updated ) Buoy responds:

Thanks Troix. Regarding my being found out, IIRC I started stating my real age not long after passing 13, and it was fine. I don't think the age requirement is much more than a way to prevent legal trouble if a child signs up and does something stupid, e.g., mixes ammonia and bleach because someone says you can grow pretty crystals that way. The tone of the TOS makes it pretty clear: "If you are under 13 years of age, then please leave Newgrounds immediately - there are lots of other, more pleasant web sites out there that won't horrify your delicate parents".

Oi, I legitimately thought you were dead; Someone said that you were or something to me when I asked them about how to contact you or something about 2 years ago. After that I just kinda gave up with looking because I was convinced. But I am really happy you're up and around!

So, since you aren't dead, I just wanted to say I really loved your music! I downloaded it some time ago and would always listen to it in the car, on vacation, etc. I still have it on my phone, and listen to it regularly. So, thanks for making it, because it really makes me happy and is just generally amazing.

Stay awesome (and alive)! And happy NG birthday!

(Updated ) Buoy responds:

Do you remember, or are you able to find out, who told you that? I'd like to have a word with them, because this is at least the second time I've heard someone say that someone told them that (with great confidence). Someone's going around town spreading rumours about my death, what?

I'm happy you like my music, I hope to start up again as soon as circumstances allow it

Been loving your music since I joined back in 08. Thanks for some of the best ambient and blues I've heard on this site

Buoy responds:

Thanks, that's so nice to hear. Didn't know I ever did blues though

Came back today to check how NG has been doing, can't believe it's been that long! I still listen to your stuff from those wayback days as well (prolly began with Bouyant).

Still really quality sounds, and for the nostalgia's sake, it's a memory worth keeping.
