First of all, I don’t know whether this should be in general discussion or off topic, but whatever.
I could’ve joined the byte forums and discord much earlier, but because I didn’t, I’ve missed out on a lot of experiences and relationships I could’ve formed
Why I think I’ve missed out
Ok, so a few weeks after I joined the forums (sometime during December) I was thinking about what I’ve missed out on since I wasn’t there earlier on in the production of byte/v2, and I realized it was a lot.
Although I’ve gotten to know many interesting, helpful, and friendly people on the forums, I can’t help to wonder what things would have been like if I had joined in July, April, or even in January when the forums were first made. I never got to see and experience what the forums were like when they were first created, I missed the first beta sign up, I missed the creation of the discord, and most importantly, I missed a lot of the community and the relationships that I could’ve made had I joined earlier.
The worst thing about all of this is that I could’ve joined earlier. Last summer I was thinking about how I had missed out a lot on vine. I knew people who used vine, and I usually looked at vine compilations before it closed, but I knew I had missed out on a lot of what vine truly had to offer. I was talking to a friend about how cool it would be if him and I could make another vine-type app, but I never searched to see if it actually existed. In November, when him and I were talking about it again, I decided that I would look it up, and sure enough, after just 1 minute of looking, I found the byte website which lead me here.
I know it’s not anything to really be down about, but even until now, I’m a little disappointed that I never looked into this before. Ever since I joined, I’ve tried to be as active as I could, but I can never get back those memories, experiences, and relationships that I would’ve had I looked into it earlier. I know this was a random rant (Ik it’s not a rant but I can’t think of the word for it) but I figured I’d share my feelings about it all with you guys.
