I have had animating software way before I even had a computer that I could call my own.  I have been toying with flash ever since macromedia flash 8, I started animating since I was 13 y/o possibly a little before.  However as life started to slowly bring me into adult hood, and still is.  I have been getting increasing distant from flash and my talents of drawing and story telling that helped my hobby and once ambition of being an animator.  I am now 18 years old, and I look back on what I can remember of my animations and because of old hard-drives, software or just forgotten passwords I have very little, almost nothing to show for it.  I can see today that animators have become greatly sophisticated, clever and efficient compared to the stuff I saw when I was younger and animating, I'm actually intimated.  I can't explain how I feel this, but I now have drive to show my potential.  Maybe its to show and to prove to myself that all those years of drawing and animating were not wasted, that they would never benefit me.  Maybe I also have a desire, that once I get up to speed, that I could make a career out of it.  Ether way, even if this desire to animate is nothing more than a small fad or life long passion, I at least want to influence any amount of people, to show them real talent and to make my mark and assist others in a community, like this one.  I want to get back into and animating and to catch up fast.  Thats why I'm here, I would like advice, supportive criticism and general help.  I don't really know what to expect here, I don't know what the general atmosphere here is, or sense of honor and respect.  A friend to help me come to grips with everything here would be nice.  While I can't say for sure, however if things go the way they look and this place is really as good people make it out to be, I really hope to give something in return in the long run.  Well this is me, hope to have fun at this site.

@Granadico
No, I didn't really know other animators that made a name for themselves online, the only animators I knew were people I knew of in real life. However I did know of animators online such as Daniel Sun, orange foot and alvin earthworm, even though I never personally interacted with them

@BDB
Thanks, I am looking forward to it, and hope that I can return the favor.

If ether one of you would be willing, I would appreciate some one to talk to for trivial advice about this place, and someone to help me to learn what you would consider common knowledge about flash, I am very out of touch with how far you can take animating software (I see that there has been a lot of innovation in how people animate) But I haven't lost touch with things like the end result and very well most things that can be immediately seen. I have 20/13 vision and have a condition where my focus can be hyper-attentive (in short I can learn quickly) I already know someone who is willing to help, but he doesn't know me all that well and I don't want to ask him all the questions I have. Its simple why, I know I ask too many question. Anyway, thanks for responding to this and acknowledging me, and I hope all goes well for all of us.

I am just now checking it out. Thanks for mentioning it, I had to google search it, I cant seem to find the link to it just by looking around here. It has some good insight from what I can see. I think I will be referring to this often.

You have 20/13 vision? isn't taht super amazing O_O
and i'm not very good with flash stuff (thoguh i can critique animations decently), but i can help you with the site, so can BDB considering we're the most veteran members here besides Eric (site owner)

@Granadico
Yeah its supposed to be amazing, sometimes its beneficial and other times its distracting.  Btw thanks, I may end up asking you for things pertaining to the site.  Would you happen to know how to get to the tutorial part of the website without doing a google search?  I don't need to know I just like to know these things.

@SXR123
Thanks, I will take a look at your work, I can't remember if I have heard of you but then again I was very linear in what I chose to look at when it came to animations from other people.

@Leo
Thank you =)

I feel like I can say that if I knew about this site during the time I started flash, I doubt I would have drifted from animating.  Thanks everyone for making me feel welcome.

You know that would actually make sense... I'm totally down for having the Tutorial section be accesible at the top.
