Been reading through the forums for a little while and finally decided to join.
I have been yo-yoing off and on since 1998/99 and been part of a couple of the different online communities as they came and went. I took a few breaks now and then when things started getting busy in my life, but I never quite put the yo-yo down for long.
I was most active back during my undergrad years when I joined on theyo forum (I used to go by the sn Whitecaptain) and still remember quite a few people from there. I used to serve as a mod for a little while before my studies started taking over my life in the last few years. I left the online community in about 2008 to focus on my last couple of courses before I began my career. Seems like some of the people from theyo moved over to here and are still active in the community, which is very refreshing to see.
Since then I have not really been on the yo-yo scene much up until about 2 years ago when I was looking through my old collection again and decided to try seeing what the community has been up to since. I came across an ad for Yoyoexpert and picked up some B-grades for fun to get back into the hobby. It’s amazing how much yo-yos have changed since!
Sorry if this brief story got a bit long-winded. Looking forward to chatting with you all and helping out wherever I can.
