Where it all began

So, as a lot of you know, my name is 343. I seem to be a somewhat respected person here and I'm very grateful for you all. You're all so amazing. But life for me on Wikia, wasn't so easy. Not due to fault of others, but due to my own faults.

I first joined Wikia a complicated mess with many social problems and often found it hard to control myself. Should someone upset me, I used to return with brutal force. Often getting myself banned in the process. But it's with a heavy heart I share with you this story of how I went from being hated by a whole network I cared about into being who I am today.

It all started with a little site called Halo Nation. Halo Nation provided me with a lot, it's where I began with Wikia. But my social problems very quickly ended up showing themselves and I didn't even attempt to control them. I argued with nearly everyone and caused horrific arguments with the people surrounding me. I quickly found myself having a ban record of 10+. I was never happy when I was banned and consistently attempted to fight for my case.

The time came where I began to progress into something awful. I socked, caused havok and found myself banned for a very long period of time... This is when I met you guys. The wonderful people of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Wiki. Who, to begin with, also disliked me. (For good reason too). I craved to be a moderator, my heart was in the right place and I always wanted to make people happy and to prove myself, but my persistence and brain was not in the right place and people often saw me in a negative light. (Which I deserved). That is until of course, a certain, fantastic person stood up to the rest and actually spoke to me, helped me and taught me. His name? Callofduty4. He's helped me so much, helped me adjust my approach, didn't knock me down when I made mistakes and stood by me. EVERY step of the way and I owe my current place here to him.

Before I knew it, I was a moderator of this fine place and found myself loving everyone here. For their bright, quirky and fun sides! Things continued to progress and eventually, I made up with someone else I upset... this meant a LOT to me. Their name? Ozuzanna. Both Callofduty4 and Ozuzanna thereon helped me grow into what I am and I am forever in their favour.

Respect and cherish them, they're there if you need them. But I don't just want to say thank you to them, I also want to say thank you to everyone here. You're all so amazing, along with some people from Halo Nation. (T3CHNOCIDE, Ultra Force and Sgt D Grif). Though our history is colourful, you've also helped me mold into something better and I'm ever so grateful.

Most of all, thank all of you here. For accepting me into such a diverse and fantastic community. One of which, I am proud to call my home community.

Friendship is magic...
