Tis the season of finals for me, and you know what that means! Procrastination.

What better way to procrastinate than to look back at Origin three or four years ago and see the activities of those times. Honestly, we were a precursor to more centralized social networks like Facebook or MySpace, except we really connected as a community, and we should be immensely proud of that. I know I am.

Reading posts from the past, seeing the community, really induced tears of nostalgia. Origin is such a large part of my life—its origins were during my middle school years—and I'm sure many of you could say the same.

Origin will be a lifetime community. Although our lives' paths have crossed and turned and many of us have gone to college or work, Origin will always have a place in the origin of my heart.

I hope everyone is doing well. Happy holiday season!

Aww, very sweet. stongue.gif stongue.gif

I've a relative new-comer, but I can tell that Origin has a deep community and history. Even though we've gotten busy and sometimes post infrequently, we still come back!

Happy Holidays. swink.gif

I love your use of "origin" interspersed with "Origin." ssmile.gif

Here's to the best of times; here's to the worst of times! I feel like we're a side story in a Tale of Two Cities, and there is certainly nothing wrong with that. What has it been, seven years in total? Eight years? You guys are some of my best and longest friends. Here's to more great years!

I've had my ups and downs with Origin, but the site means a lot more to me than many would think. Seriously.

If someone gave you $n for you to never go on Origin again, what would be the minimum n?

$10,000,000 - Then with all the time I can spend not having to go to school or work, I'll make an Origin 2.

Good idea. Maybe you can get tons of people to stand up for your cause and donate that much money. What we'll do is a "Shut Down OriginXT Fund." Now, hear me out. We put the most obscene, offensive, and vulgar things we can on this site, and pretend that the site is being run by hate groups. Then we ask for donations to fund campaigns to shut down this, and other sites like it. Meanwhile, we back up all the good stuff onto an OriginXT 2. Once we've got all the money we need, we shut down the vulgar site, keep Origin, and be a few dollars richer.

This site could definitely use a $10 million cash infusion

It would be cool, but what the heck would we do with it?
