MOCaversary Four: There goes one more.
Hello again, it's been a while.
About this creation
As you've probably guessed from the title, Today is the fourth anniversary of me joining MOCpages, a momentous occasion to be sure.

I know I've been distant from MOCpages for a while, and my build progress has slowed considerably. But I'd just like you all to know that I'm still here, lurking in the shadows. I've seen several new builders join and find their footing, as well as find some great new friends. If MOCpages was to be prized for anything, it would definitely be the good people and tight-knit community.

After I suddenly realized yesterday that my MOCaversary was set to occur soon, I've been thinking hard on MOCpages, the people I've met here. and what they mean to me. I've met many of my best friends on this site, friends who have widened my horizons, and pushed me to grow beyond the kid I was when I first signed up. I can say wholeheartedly that MOCpages and the people I've met here on this site have made me into the person I am today. and honestly, it's kinda a scary thought. If I had never felt the urge to make an account, or if my mom had just straight up said no. I would probably be an entirely different person, with different friends, dreams and ambitions. Heck, that might have actually been for the better, but I personally wouldn't have it any other way.

You could even trace it back further and say that if I had never purchased my first Hero Factory set, the changes would have been far more drastic. and I'd have to agree.

Don't doubt the significance of one action.

Despite the state of MOCpages, I don't regret joining it, I never have. But as I find myself wandering farther from my metaphorical childhood home here on the internet, to strike out on my own and further my goals, I can only hope and pray that I was some kind of help to those on their own journey. That my mistakes and my triumphs can be a guiding light to others on their way. I know I'm not perfect, I've screwed up way too many times to count, But I'm glad for this little website, that I could stumble and fall and get back up again, all in the company of friends.

If I could say something to round off this last year on MOCpages and abroad, I'd like to offer a few words of advice, for those of you still here.

Be good to yourself, and be good to each other. And most importantly, have fun.

One day you'll realize how much each of these people mean to you. How much each conversation or comment or dumb joke means. One day you'll look back on the simple little life here on MOCpages, and wish you could have it back. You'll feel nostalgic, you'll probably wonder where all the time has gone. And it's up to you, right here and now, to make sure that it was time well spent.

I've made a vow to myself to never actually leave MOCpages. My account will be here, my MOC's will be here, And if you ever need me, I'll be here too.

I hope you all have a great day, and I wish you well in all your endeavors.

Thank you.

Spencer~

Quoting [ C.P.D. ] Happy late MOCaversary my friend. I can remember the LDD builds lol. It's been a pleasure to get to know you and be a friend, regardless of how long it's been since we've really talked. Take care of yourself. :)
Thanks man, right back at ya!

Quoting Dark Aeon It feels so darn weird realizing that itís been 4 years since you started on here. Youíve certainly grown by leaps and bounds during that time, and itís been fun to watch you grow and get to know you a bit. Hereís a toast to the future, at least before Sean Kenney decides to shut down MP or whatever (who knows at this point, with how often the Pagesí have been down?). And I just realized that my own 5th Mocaversay is in a week or something. Now I feel pressured to actually do something for it :P
Yeah, thanks man. I look forward to see what you have in store!

Quoting Pontel Gunn Good to know you will be staying! Even though we have had our differences *coughbanningmeoverandovercough* I am really glad we are friends. (We are riiiggght?) also congratulations on four years here :D Okoto Station was a doozy, but I am glad it exists/existed. Do you feel the same? ~ The Greatest Hero In The Land.
Heh, don't worry, no hard feelings man. Thanks! And yeah, I'm extremely grateful for OS and the people I met and interacted with on there. And believe it or not, we're still kicking! We've got a discord server at the moment, it's a fun place to hang.

Quoting [ Kromastus ] It's been interesting to see the post-heyday Bionicle/CCBS builders develop. You've come a long way, and developed into a skilled and admirable builder. I look forward to seeing your further progress, here and on more functional (if less charming) sites.
Thanks a lot man.

Quoting Wertman 8 Ah, happy Mocaversary man- I still remember when I first saw your posts on here- 'they grow up so fast' *sniff* Well done for persevering with your stuff, I've never seen such a steep rise in MOCcing quality over a rather short amount of time. All I can say is keep on keeping on, I'll deeply enjoy following your work far into the future, whether on MOCpages or somewhere else! (Oh, and I'll still enjoy your ____posts on YouTube :P)
Heh, thanks Werty, it means a lot.

Quoting Daniel H. Dude, that was a good speech. Weíve had our disagreements, but Iím glad I met you man. Itís been so cool watching you progress as a builder. Just look how far youíve come from basic Hero builds! You are truly an amazing builder. Iím glad youíre keeping your ĎPages account, and I hope to connect with you elsewhere sometime soon. Congratulations on being here four years! My fourth was back in June. So I just realized that I was here just slightly before you were. Kinda weird haha. Let me finish with saying that youíre an awesome guy, and I hope to enteract with you more. Best of luck to you with your ventures outside of MOCpages!
Thanks, Daniel. The feeling is mutual.
