Hey! I was an active member of RGP and then MS from I think 2002 – 2010. It got me through some pretty massively dark times in life and was also pretty fun to be involved in sometimes. Not sure how many of the longer term members are still around or if you’d remember me – I wore a lot of eyeliner and liked to post in the ‘outfits’ in the photo gallery forum haha (back before fear of photos on the internet was such a thing i guess)
I was mostly recovered from my eating disorder by 2010/2011 and a few devastating life events knocked me out of internet land (terrible break up, sudden death of a best friend, sister diagnosed with cancer that they thought was terminal ((BUT SHES OK!) and then some) and I lost track of what was going on with the community. I’ve mostly kept my eating disorder at bay with the odd mild-moderate relapse, but anxiety, depression and ADHD are things I continue to work on.
Anyway... I mostly came here wondering if people were still around, or if there was another message board people have migrated to..
Oh and ALSO – does anyone know the history of the character Ruby Gloom (from the name of the old site Ruby's Gloomy Place?) I tried to look it up, but the internet only talks about it being something to do with stationary, and then a cartoon in 2006. But RGP the site was at least a few years before 2006?
