I am making this blog early because I can and because there's a lot to really recap. I will be bouncing around a bit with some brief history and explaining the previous year.
When I joined the Temp 8 years ago, I didn't not think I would make to 8 years. In fact I joined with a throwaway account, using a throwaway name, and even an old email that I barely used. I had no intentions of staying, but I wanted my AP patches and one day I was forced to join. And honestly, I am extremely happy that I did join and that I did end up keeping this account. Even though so much has changed and the community has changed, the Temp spirit has always remained the same.
I never actually set out to be who I am now nor did I set out to be one of the most famous members on this site. I simply wanted a few AP patches and wanted to leave. Never once would I think that I would be helping the community, testing applications, and sharing a vast amount of knowledge with you guys. It's honestly amazing to think that a few good members back in the day helped push me to learn more and share more and that several others like Costello helped me with real life issues. This site has been a real part of my life for the better part of 8 years and I've met so many amazing people through this site. I know I had a rough 2017, but I am happy y'all stuck through it with me and put up with me. I am also happy that I did come back to my real home here on the Temp.
It's interesting to think that in 8 years I went from, "Where is my AP patch!" To working along side members in the M3 forums helping others out. I went on, helped in several other sections and even helped test out homebrews from several devs. I slowly became a regular and people started seeing me as a helpful member on the site, it was quite nice really.
When the 3DS scene came about, I didn't have a hacked 3DS and just kind of lingered around the site. I answered questions that I could help with did my own thing the background. To be honest, I wasn't even sure I would even understand the 3DS homebrew scene at the time. It seemed extremely complicated to me and terms like "CFWs" and "emuNANDs" all seemed over my head. Luckily the community helped point me in the right direction and I quickly picked up the knowledge that I needed. From there I made it my goal to be even more involved in the 3DS scene than I was in the DS days. I quickly started making guides, helping members, and even helping devs with testing their work. I basically dove into the deep end and ended up swimming. I think the rest is really history, everyone knows who I am and what I do. I am Lilith and I am here to help.
After 8 years, I can't believe I still working so hard to for this site. I can't actually thank this community enough for the what so many have done to help me get to where I am now. From members stepping in to make sure I was ok, to others listening to me as I struggled to find myself, and even Costello giving me a chance to make a better life. This site has been an experience for me that I can never replace. No matter what happens or what has happened, I love this site site and the community. It's been more than just a website for me, it's been a second home that I know I am always welcome to stay for however long I want.
So I hope that addresses the elephant, but I don't want that to be the focus, so I put them behind spoilers.Addressing the elephant
As per my randomly started thing, here's a new picture of Lilith! This one brought you by our one and only @Bubsy Bobcat!
I honestly not only love Bub's art style, but I love the direction she brought Lilith in. She's been one of the biggest contributors to Lilith's character and I love that about her. One of the biggest changes she's done was add some meat to Lilith and give her a much chubbier look. Which I actually really feels fits her more. Lilith was always suppose to be warm and cuddly and making her thicker really gives her that cute cuddly look. She looks more natural and healthy, which makes me smile seeing her like that. And it seems a lot of my fans on other sites enjoy this change as well. So i am going to give a lot love to Bubs for making Lilith so much better! Also a lot of love to the Temp for allowing me to meet members like Bubs! If not for the Temp, Lilith would most likely not even exist! Y'all super important to me and I love you guys!
