  • Today I stumbled across something bizarre. So, I searched my name up on Google, just for fun, and I stumbled across a TikTok account by the name of "goombuigi" (I didn't make this account, I don't know who did), and the profile picture of it is my art of Goombuigi with the "Bugs" expression, of all things.

    I doubt this is the case but just so you're aware, anyone that used to have an account on Music.ly automatically had it moved over to TikTok. If you've never had a Music.ly account either then you might have a secret admirer/imposter, but if you did, there you go.
    So, I was nostalgically browsing through old threads, as I often like to do, when I stumbled upon this post I made three years ago (fittingly, predicting what the start of 2024 would look like):

    In 2024, I would imagine myself in a vastly different position than I am in now. I would have been in the community for nearly four years at that point, and I'd probably have participated in many projects and got to know a lot more people by that point. The 'Shroom would be past it's 200th issue by 2024, and I'd be lying if I said that I hadn't thought about to to commemorate that milestone in my 'Shroom sections, once or twice. Whatever position I am in, I definitely imagine myself as still an active community member. Personally, my life will have changed a lot, I would transition a full-grown adult, and I'd have to deal with life beyond high school (which is scary for me to think about!).

    As for the community itself, I'm not really sure how much it would change, but I can't imagine that it would change by a significant portion. I can still see the Poll Committee and Awards Committee existing, but I'm not sure how active the community would be compared to now. From what I've seen and heard, there doesn't seem to be as many new members who stick around in the long-term and participate in community events, and that general activity on the forums has been waning. While I don't have a guess as to whether there would be a larger number of new users compared to now, I don't think that would be entirely necessary, as long as there are people who are motivated to help out in the community, which we have many of currently. I've noticed general activity shifting to Discord, and I'm guessing that gradually, that's going to continue as time progresses, but it makes sense for the Boards to stay up for those who prefer them, and for community events such as the Awards.

    Personally, it feels kinda surreal to read, especially since 2024 felt like a fairly distant future at the time.
    I just realized that it's been over three years since I joined the Boards. Even after three years, it still does not feel like that long since I first joined.
    Apparently, it's been two whole years since I joined the Boards! In some ways, it feels way shorter than that, but other times, I feel like I've been here for longer. Thank you for keeping me here for two years, and I hope to be here for many more years to come!

    Happy forumversary, Goombuigi! Having you in the community has certainly been a positive! It's been great to see you go from a Picross writer (who still makes a fabulous Picross section) to a regular face, hosting games, making art, and making presentations.
    When do you think we'll see more Goombuigi art in the style of various Mario games?

    Oh, I have some more in the About page. Turns out that signatures allow 10 pictures max, so I wasn't able to fit them there. Maybe I'll put them in my art thread so they'll get more publicity (I wanted to do so before, but I forgot).

    Because I like stats, I decided to check how many hours I've spent playing every Mario game that I own. (The only ones that I couldn't find stats on were Super Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario, because I didn't know if there was a way to find the total time on the Wii, and the mobile games for the same reason.)

    Total time played (as of Apr 22, 2021):

    Mario Party 10 - 101h39min

    Have you seen your ask thread?

    Yeah, I have. I just haven't had the time to respond to it yet.

    Cool. Just wanted to let you know.
    Hey, @InsaneLemmy is starting an rp and we need one more contestiant. Wanna join?
    Goombuigi

    I'm not sure if I'd be up for it, I haven't done a full RP in a while. What's the RP called?
    Kirbyo
    Kirbyo
    It's called... I think channel 6: mushroom kingdom reality tv.
    Can you tell me what games the goombas in your sig are from, left to right?
    Goombuigi
    Goombuigi
    I modified these from the standard Goomba sprites. The games that the original sprites come from are (from left to right): Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Land, Super Mario World (the Galoomba sprite, since there are no Goombas in that game), Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Super Mario All-Stars (Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3), and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.
    I'm thinking about doing an ask block on either the 3D Mario games, or the Mario RPGs. Would you be interested, and if yes, which one would you prefer?

    EDIT: I'll go forth with both series. If you're interested, reply with which series you'd like an ask block on.

    @Kirbyo Sometime this week. I've started working on the questions, so I'll spend the next couple of days finishing and fine-tuning them, so they'll probably be done by Thursday or Friday.
