I heard about it on HPFF, when I was looking around in the FAQs, read about acquiring a banner, and found a link to the old boards. Curious (with no idea what a forum was ), I joined for fun ... and that's my story.

I can't remember why I did it, but for some reasons I clicket back on this page and finally remembered that I was a member here as well. And I went to my page where I keep all my personal information and found back to both password and username. AND HERE I AM! It was kind of a long story when you think about how long I knew of this place. Probably about the same time as HPFF annonced it. I have always been around at that site so...

I was on HPFF and I wrote on my summary of one of my stories that I needed a banner.
I got a review telling me about this great place.
So I joined, requested a banner and I always came back ever since. I have even started graphic making! Isn''t this place lovely!
The end....Ok, It wasn't such a long sory

I was like Xuan, I had no idea about graphics, or forums, things like that...Used to be a bit of a lurker too, before I signed up.

I didn't make my own graphics for a while though, and didn't ask to become a Graphics Artist until September. I just entered a few challenges here and there and requested banners of my own, and gawked at everyone elses.

If I remember I'll edit it into this post...
Edit: Okay I think I've got it now. I found BitterEpiphany's Cheeky Graphics page. After using it for a while I noticed that it had a longish url, signaling to me that there was more site somewhere. I got rid of the end of the url, shortening it to just bitterepiphany.com, and found a link to the Dark Arts from there. That was early December 2005. I lurked around for almost two monthes when I finally decided to sign up, and I'm glad I did.

It was mainly through all the gorgeous banners I spotted with the stories -they all seemed to lead back here, lol. So, one day, I lurked over here and just sort of.. sat back watched everything for a while. I then spotted some tuts I thought were easy enough to follow and ta-da! I've been here ever since.

i made my own banners.. but they were AWEFUL!!! then i saw KimMalfoy's banners and TomFoolery's and i just knew i HAD to request from them... In Tomfoolery's author's page was an image link through here... it says "Need a banner for your story"?? heeeheee but that was last year... i was a little bit scared to ask and i was so confused on HOW to, that i registered but didnt use my account...
Then i cam back earlier this year but i had to register again since the site moved... and now yeah here i am heehee... but i never did get to request from KimMalfoy or TomFoolery heehee oh well..
