*yet another possibly already made topic, shhhh.

I was telling a newer forumite earlier how much of a coincidence/near miss it was for me to have ever heard of Matazone. I had a friend online when I was much younger whose username was MitsukaiSiryuse, and we frequently teased him by calling him 'Mittens'. Out of the blue, another friend IMed me one day with an animation featuring a cat called Mittens and thought it would be hilarious to use to mock our Mit. I checked out the website, enjoyed some of the anims, and noticed the word 'forums' floating around. I had no idea what a forum was, so I decided to click it and find out..

And boom, entire life course set on a different path, all because of an IM joke to mock someone with an unfortunate nickname.

What got you here?

A friend of mine from school sent me a link to a Snowdrop/Mittens animation because we both liked cats and both liked somewhat offbeat humour wink.gif I think it was the only animation on here at the time (perhaps there was one other Mittens animation?), but I watched it several times. I then took a look at the other stuff on the site (photos, art, some short stories I think?) and then decided to email the wonderfully talented creator to just say something along the lines of: "Hey! A friend showed me your Mittens animations. I like them!".

I recall that there were several emails exchanged between myself and Mata before he told me he was setting up a forum and that I should definitely join.

So I did.

Then I didn't visit it for about a year or something... ahem.
