Gentlemen, good to hear from all of you. I'm still on PSN on xx_dom_bom_xx if you guys want to add me.

Yes, I still cringe at that username, but I was young, it was 2008, and here I am now, 20 years old and at university and yes, a bigger nerd than ever before.

Alternatively, if you guys still want contact, add me on Snapchat on dom-bom (yes, not much has changed really) it'd be kinda cool to see you guys, wherever you may be...

Bye for now!

Hey there dom! It seems that you're doing well which is great to hear. Smile I hope that University is also going well for you. What is it that you're studying?

Also I will totally add you on the SnapChat if you're cool with it. My name on there is Geckoberry just like on PSN. If anyone else wants to add me feel free.

Oh ya and guess what guys, I got some nifty news. I've been accepted to big kid college. I'll be studying animation this coming fall. And I'm terrified. If any of you out there have advice on how to live on your own and not die, I will happily listen.

Well, just wanted to check in with all members of LS (who still visit)...

I'm doing well! Graduated from university with a BA in graphic design. Now working full-time as a graphic designer, on top of the odd freelance job here and there. Living at home for a while until I can get an apartment alongside some roommates. Life is going well so far, so no complaints from me.

Hope you all are doing well too, and look forward to hearing from you guys when you do come to poke around the forums. As always, I'll remind you that many members from here and RPGF are active on Skype, so if you wish, contact me and we can swap contact info.

Cheers,

Kami / Bleach-sama

Nice to hear from you guys, hope you're all still doing well.

Well, one year later and I'm back here again. I just finished university (best 3 years of my life I might add) with a BSc (with hons) in Criminology, so I'm hoping to be applying for the police soon as support staff, so all the research and stuff, not actual patrolmen.

And if that plan goes to shit? Well, a number of kids entertainment companies (like Disney) are interested in me due to my previous 5 years of working with children at a kids camp, so theres always that.

Anyway, it would be nice to hear from any of you, I'll check back frequently over the next few days... see ya around

Hi Dom!

Gotta say, I always find it amazing when people keep coming back to sites like these. It makes it worth not completely shutting down the site, even when everything else has long since gone silent. If only for this thread to remain active every once and a while, for its members to keep everyone posted, that's enough for me.

I'm glad to hear you're doing well though! Congrats on getting through college—good luck with your job search. Speaking from experience, it isn't easy, but it's certainly worth putting forth all of your effort. There's something to be said for that old saying, "Finding a full-time job, is a full time job."

As for me, life has been turbulent—though in a mostly good way. I lost my first job early this year, back around February. I was laid off—nothing to do with the quality of my design work or anything like that, luckily, but it was still an all around bitter experience. Didn't take long to realize it was a huge blessing in disguise.

I started immediately looking for my next job, but I treated it as a new potential step-up in my graphic design career. After four and a half months of near-constant job searching, I finally landed what I would consider to be a dream job—the veritable mother-load. I'm now an associate web graphic designer for Stanley Black & Decker. I've since been there for nearly three months, and I absolutely love it. The work is invigorating and challenging, and the atmosphere is much more rewarding and enjoyable. I love the people I work with, and am forging new relationships with other people.

At the same time, I have also landed multiple freelance jobs through both a local advertising / marketing agency, as well as through my own personal contacts. So let this be a lesson to anyone—no matter how shitty or bad things may seem at one point, there is always a silver lining. Even if it doesn't appear immediately. Just work hard and look forward. Don't settle either—aim for the sky.

So... yea. Anything can happen I suppose, but for the moment, life is looking up on my end. Hopefully other people pop in sooner or later to give us an update as well.

Hello, gentlemen! I gotta say it is quite the sight to see this thread continue after so many years. Turns out I still get email notifications when someone replies on here.  Smile  It sounds like things are going super well for you  guys which is great to hear. Good luck on your job search Dom! and Bleach, congratulations on landing your dream job! I have a few friends who do graphic design related things as well so I've heard just how hard it can be to find a good position like that.
As for me it seems that school is going to take longer than I had originally planned. If everything goes well i will be looking at graduating in the summer of 2018. I'm still doing animation stuff and i've been having a lot of fun with 3D modeling and whatnot as of late. Soon enough I will begin my own trek to finding a job in my field. I'm not really sure where it will take me, but there are some small local animation studios here in Minneapolis. Other than that not much else is new on this end, as most of life has been nothing but school work.
I'm looking forward to hearing form you guys again soon! Take care

Would be kind of cool to try starting something up again. Has been quite a while for me, anywhere.

BleachKing here (renamed to Kami lol) It's always a welcomed sight to see members return here every once and a while. It sorta validates my push to just keep the site online, even if it isn't as active as it's heyday in 2009.

Jack, I'm sure you'll find something great once you're finished with school! Animation and 3D modeling is fun for sure, and I'm certain it can be a bit of a challenge if you aren't considering all your options for work, but if you have the talent, employers will always go after you. Good luck, man!

In terms of this site, it appears to be the last of a generation of RP forum-going. I've decided to start doing some light overhauls to the site, improve its functionality, and such. With RPGF having finally closed its doors, after so long, I want our members to be aware that should they want to find a place where the doors are open for any sort of creative pursuits, LS is here for that.

Hello, all. Just wanted to pop in and say hello.
i just realized its been just over a year since I stopped by... Shame on me.
Bleach I appreciate how you still take the time to make sure this site stays up and running. Even it is just for a small handful of us. Smile
Tomorrow is my last day of classes for the semester before heading home to celebrate the holidays. A break I am very much looking forward too. 2017 has been a particularly rough year. Anyway I hope you're all doing well. Happy holidays, and happy new year! I hope to hear from you guys soon.

I forgot I receive email notifications whenever someone replies to this thread. Handy!

Happy Holidays, everyone—no matter what you celebrate, enjoy it! 2017 is rapidly coming to a close, so lets all hope for a better, more prosperous 2018. Nevertheless, LS will still be standing; so as I mentioned early on this year, everyone and anyone is encouraged to log their creative pursuits here, if they so wish. These doors will be open.

Anywho, enjoys your holidays all! I'm sure I'll talk to you guys next year.

Cheers,

Kami/Bleach

Well we made it, guys. The end of 2017. I don't know about you but I found this year to be... turbulent to say the least. I too hope for a more prosperous 2018 as well, Kami/Bleach. (whichever you prefer now) Smile As for creative pursuits perhaps I'll post some things on here, as I'm in the midst of my final animation project for school. I hope your graphic design career has been treating you well, Kami/Bleach.

Here's to 2018.  drunken Skål!

EDIT: So you guys know about the WayBackMachine? It's a site that archives old websites. Anyway I just wanted to leave this here. Wink

A little late perhaps, but Happy 2018, everyone!

And JoC, man the nostalgia came rushing back. So crazy, looking back at Pandy after all this time. Hah.

Hey all—figured I might as well mention, LS has been given a shiny new facelift! Indeed, it's been about nine years too late, but I figured it was about time to drag this site into the modern age of web designs. It's nothing too fancy, but it's clean and laid out nicely!

Do feel free to leave some feedback, and any ideas for changes you'd like made. I'll see what I can do.

Cheers,

– Kami

It's looking good over here Kami Smile The only real feedback I have is that some of the lighter text is difficult to read on the white backgrounds. For instance the User info under the avatars. Otherwise I would say it looks really sleek.
I hope 2018 has been a good year for everyone so far!

Agreed! I'm trying to tweak the CSS on the site to darken that text up a bit. The ACP allows only so much, unfortunately. Thanks for the feedback, though!
