The benevolent dictator lives -massadoobie - May 22 08:50pm

Hey everyone, Doobie here! I wanted to take a second to quickly say how stoked I am that the Academy just passed its 10th birthday. I still remember the early days with JS999, DJ, and all of the other original oldbies playing JK2… as well as manually processing Academy applications by hand… which was awful. Anyway, I know I’ve been pretty much AWOL for a few years but I still love this place. I was reading the “reminiscing” thread (found here) and saw this comment posted earlier today by †Johauna Darkrider† that I felt sums up my feelings perfectly: “TJA is wonderful place, sometimes, I took steps away from it, but it's really like a home. There are paths and ways to be walked, but you always return. No matter where these paths take me, TJA is always here, when I want to see a great bunch of people.”

And now, since I can’t make a post that isn’t too long, a trip down memory road… my 50 favorite news posts ever! It’s been a fun 10 years, let’s keep this train rolling as long as possible :)

I can't believe no mention of Prom...

I think my JA highlight was seeing DJ on the server and we blew each other up repeatedly with explosives for no reason.

Good times :)

I Remember most of the beginnings miss 7 years. I try to keep up here and there. I didn't have internet for those years. Now I have a wife and 3 kids. Great memory's of JA. That make me been here for 9.5 years. I been going though my profile and reading back the history. I made a lot of great friends here Zero, my old Jedi Knight. Dopp and Aphex my jedi brothers. Damon and Shang Chi my jedi cuz's. ioshee my Jedi cuz too. 3th, Fire, & Coogee my Jedi Nephew's. Skyler, Bubu, Dark Blade, Acey Spadey(the Jedi Kitty), SmilykrazyDonita, xAnAtOs, Master Lew(My Dad). Lots of great dueling.
Also enjoyed the classes. The classes help me get better and help others learn when I joined a clan. I am now the owner of that clan. We still play jk2 to this day. Thanks for JA!! Thanks for the memory lane. Lets see many more years.
