    I've been playing on and off for almost a decade now, since I was a teen! I can't believe it's been that long LOL! xD

    Awesome! And here I was, fearing to be the only pre-21st century old crow here!

    I started forum rp in 2004. Before that, I dabbled in rp on Neopets, when I was a preteen! I took a forum rp break for a few years in the 20-teens and came back to it in 2017

    About 15 years now! It was the addiction I never lost lol
  8. Nearly 20 years at this point since I started in high school with MUDs and then moved on to forums. Aside from a few hiatuses here and there it's always been my go-to and most loved hobby.

    I've been roleplaying on and off since I was sixteen--so in total, 12 years, I think. I've taken the odd hiatus or two, but that's sort of a necessary evil, especially when your sites die out.

    Longer than I would like to admit, at 28 years...

    My first RP home was Telnet, and MU*'s, and local BBS chat rooms and the like.

    Shortly thereafter things like Prodigy and AOL and ICQ changed RP to something fast and easy and on demand.

    It's been a fascinating journey, to say the least...

    For me it's going on oh... 18 years or something like that now (and that's just forum rp, not including tabletop and other stuff).

    I'm sad to say I actually don't know the exact year that I started! But, I know that it was at least 2008. The first forums I joined were invisionfree!

    Since I was eleven. I'm 24 now.
  15. I started on AOL chat rooms when they were a huge thing, then after a while, I felt bored with them and found out about MySpace and basically ended up stuck with them on their RPG side of things (fantasy, wolves, TLK stuff back then) and then in 2005 I found out about RPG Forums and never went back ever since. I've been on Proboards, JCINK, MyBB, and just about anything else in between.

    I think since I was about 11 or 12... so 20 years or so? Which seems like such a long time just stated outright like that... I started off with forum RP, even, writing Sailor Moon OCs. Ah, youth.

    Well .. I started table top RP when I was six and it has been ... quite a few decades since then. My first RPing online was in yahoo user rooms of all places so I feel like that also puts a pretty big time stamp on things.

    Beyond video games, I have really only ever participated in writing RPs, which I've been doing on and off since I was 13.

    I started (more or less) when I was in my teens, with some empty spaces where I wasn't rping at all between now and then. But if we're going by the time I first rped, then probably 25 years ;-;

    I just hit my decade mark sometime in the last year—half of that after founding my site. Not constant (lots of hiatuses, especially from 2017-18) but always part of what I was doing. Fortunately I've come a long way from my days on Omegle.
