After five years of membership, it's finally time for me to depart. I have greatly enjoyed my time on the site (and I will continue to greatly enjoy the pictures and videos I've downloaded ), but the direction the site's going in since its split and expansion just isn't for me. So when my subscription goes up for renewal in a couple days, I'll just let it go.
Still, it's been fascinating to see the evolution over the years. I remember when still shoots would be posted in two parts, so that there'd be new material each day.
I remember when videos had no live sound, just some cheesy instrumental soundtrack.
I remember the infamous saga of the Yarra Girls.
I remember when the first Intimate Moments shoot went up.
I remember when Abby dabbled in Girl/Boy shoots.
I remember the Special Project.
I remember when Mrs. Roops posted on the boards using her husband's account.
I remember the old posters, like Redrat, Jus1drun and Brownboyletamb.
I remember when Elizabeth wouldn't do explicit shoots.
I remember when a 6-girl shoot was unprecedented.
I remember when Abby did all the stills herself.
I remember when Susie was blonde.
It's been a fabulous five years. But now it's time to be packing.
Sorry to see you leave Dafydd. Those memories will stay with you I'm sure as they are the best from this site. Have a safe journey to wherever you go and whatever you do. It's been a pleasure having you here.
The Yarra Girls shoot drama you might know as the poster 'elfie' who rather insistently begged/pleaded/demanded and what not for the release of that shoot pretty much as soon as it was shot. Release of that shoot got delayed and delayed and just so happened *cough* to be released when elfie was no longer an active member
Thanks, Arsby. No, I'm not moving to another site. AW is the only porn site I've ever seen that I wanted to join. I just feel like it's outgrown me. I may come back in the future, at least to buy a couple of DVDs I really want but haven't the disposable income to get right now.
Well, today's my last day, so I want to thank all the beautiful models (and that means all of them!), past and present; the brilliantly talented staff, past and present; all you folks who've ever posted on the Boards; and, of course, Abby Herself for a truly unique and wonderful website and community.
I've made public my personal list of favorites; I don't know if the list will carry on after my departure, but fior now at least you can find it here.
If anybody's curious about my handle, "Dafydd" (pronounced "DAH-vith") is the Welsh equivalent of "David". I'm not Welsh, I just thought it would look cool as a screen name.
Aw Dafydd, I joined AW around the same time as you did and so we no doubt share many of the same memories. Even back then you could tell it was a class apart from the usual adult fodder on the net. Well it's been good having you as a long time companion on this journey and I wish you well. Might see you again, you never know when you might get the urge to resub just to check things out, even if only for a month or three.
Hehe oh and Lux I hope that if and when I decide to go, I might be remembered for a bit more than some rather amusing spats with people. I know what you mean though, there have been great moments, some good laughs and however heated things can get I don't think I've ever not ended up saying lets have a beer and shake hands again on it. I don't remember me and Roops sparring with each other, can you enlighten me.
Bye also to you Spud, hope you have some good memories not only of many of the fantastic girls we have been introduced to but also your friends here on the boards.
He He - I remember the Strip 21 game - boy that goes back some way. I had that and it was great - could never quite win enough hands to get the girl to go naked !! Shucks. Then when my PC died and I lost heaps of stuff that I hadn't backed up (no one ever thinks to back up coz they assume it will never happened) the game went too.
I run a very successful forum myself (tho not this interesting) and we have had long-time and very frequent posters who have left and it's always kinda sad and those who are left often ask themselves why they stay and should they leave.
Some do but often the departed reappears after 6-8 months, either briefly or with many new experiences to share. We mayyet hear more from Dafydd.
Hopefully we will see you back here in a while, who knows? The murderer always returns to the site of crime.
Well, you called it, Lux — I'm back. Dunno for how long (it depends on whether or not I can afford these new rates) and I had to take a new handle now, but I'm back for at least this month. Goodness the changes around here! GG videos in HD!! As a single video instead of a quadrilogy!!! And oh my goodness, Isadora!!!! A natural redhead with full bush and underarm hair!!!!! She alone was worth returning for.
So I'll be around. Blazingstoke's the new callsign, but underneath I'm still Dafydd.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to download some Lacie shoots before I head out for the evening.
