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?

Welcome back! I remember your user name. I don't know if you'll remember me (I've changed user names so that makes it nearly impossible to know who I am buy I've been around since the RGP days).

Did you use tapatalk to upload your photo? That's the only way I've been able to add photos.

Have you had Phoenix for a while though? I recognize it from when I was on ms regularly (back around 2010 and earlier), not sure if it was you?
 

And thanks for the tapatalk tip! I got it :)

I changed usernames about 2 and half years ago. I didn't know there was another phoenix. I'll message you my old name (I had to change it because I thought that someone from real life found me on here). 

 

Yay on the photo upload!

I remember people having Ruby Gloom clothing (hoodies with cat ears?!) before 2006. Sorry, not much help. Welcome back though!

I remember you! I remember you had an evanescence avatar, right? I can't even figure out how to put an avatar on, I keep trying but nothing shows up. Nice to see you again. Are you on the facebook?

Yes! I used the forums as RGP and I think it was named something else before that.
Each time I have returned my login hasn’t worked so i have had several accounts/ user names throughout the past many years

I think the pre RGP forum was called Ana by Choice; at least that's what I was in before it turned into this one. Kismet, I remember you, too.

Crazy crazy to think it's been so long! I think I first found the forum around 2002 as well. How does time pass so quickly?!?

Hey! I remember your username. If you are the person I am thinking of... do you have blonde hair, and is your real name Darcy? My username on RGP was either Ashley or YahYouBetcha. I had palm trees or a flamingo as an avatar, and I also had an avatar of 2 one-way signs pointing in opposite directions. I miss RGP... it got me through a lot of dark times in my life too. I was in high school back then and didn't really have anyone to talk about my ED, so I was grateful to have found the forum. I was very active on the forum during the early 2000's up until 2008-2009 when I was in college

 

Tortured Angel, I remember you also!
