    We're 3 years old today!

    Thanks and congrats to everyone who has helped get the community this far!
    Especially a huge thank you to the staff (both past and present), you don't get nearly enough appreciation and you deserve a big thank you.

    My life has changed considerably over the past few years, and Chronet/Garry's Mod play a huge role in that. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Chronet and the people that make the community the way it is.

    We've come a long way this year and had some of the biggest milestones to date. We've successfully done what no other popular roleplay server has done, created a 100% standalone gamemode and made huge changes to the way you play on the server. Thank you to everyone who supported this risky update and change. It paid off in the end.

    Let's make the next year even better than the last!

    Cheers,
    Simple

    Three years, we've lasted longer than most relationships!

    Fact: Most relationships were ended because of Chronet.

    It was a cold, dark December evening when I first stumbled onto this server. I was almost a full year into living in the Glorious People's Republic of New York under the venerable Chairman Cuomo. I spent hours hiding with a money printer in a closet in an unowned house just so that I could purchase some MAC-10s (that I did not mass RDM with I swear). Somewhere in there I started abusing Oxycontin, vaguely remember something about the minge-wars of the summer of 2013, something about about Kai shoving a frozen butternut squash up my ass, then me having a failed suicide attempt where I tried to overdose with placebo medication. I really don't know much other than I spent 8 fucking weeks on this server, and the vast majority of it was hiding in a corner of some base, getting fucked in the ass, and growing virtual drugs to get virtual money to buy virtual guns. Where the fuck did my life go wrong? 8 whole weeks, wasted, shooting kids, yelling at kids, trying to resist the urge to snap my laptop in half. I could've been a doctor or done something with my life, but NOOOO, I had to get home and grow fucking weed in a video game. God fucking dammit Simple; my failure as a man is on you. You made this.
    I had a promising future as an engineer, but was too busy basing and raiding to study math, or science. You know that I won an award from both the school and the state of New York for a hydraulic arm that I built? Yeah, could've pursued something with that.
    The funny thing is that despite no longer being a member of the community, or at least like I used to be, I wouldn't have changed anything if I got a chance to do it over (except I might've started losing weight sooner, but yolo) since Chronet helped me meet some pretty cool people, a lot of mediocre people, and a fuckton of retards who are holding humanity back. I'll never forget Veno raping me, Sikes blowing my brains out to get my drugs, or calling Flaming Gabe a fat Finnish Fuck, no matter how much alcohol I consume to try to numb the pain.

    Anyways, I really don't know where I was going with this, so have this:

    Wait, really? 3 years? I honestly think it's been longer, bruh.
    We've been friends on Steam for little over 4 years now. Next June will be our 5th anniversary <3
    Congratulations to Chronet! 4 years later and I still think of the fun I've had :)

    Late Reply, but I wanted to say a bit
    Big up Simple and everyone on Chronet, I'm so glad that 3 years into this community, and even longer into prior Garrys Mod projects, this is still 100% a passion project. Hopefully as Garry's Mod becomes more and more niche, we can still all have a lot of fun as part of the best community in the game.

    I've been playing on Chronet and CSN since I was 13 and am now at University, it's been a great time, and I've met some great friends along the way as well as honestly having positive experiences that have helped shape who I am today. The potential for this impact on players new and old is what keeps me as involved as I can be despite not having time to actually play the game any more :)
