★ Message from the the Newest Black Star - King_Canine ★










@King_Canine



For starters, yes I know it's weird to have someone post such an important thing on my behalf - but what can I say I am weird like that. Literally, no one else may care about my no post feat, but I sure do!


Let me begin with the most important part of this post. Thank you to all the wonderful friends and all the people I have met along the way to help me make this goal. I always imagined going name by name but after 6 years I'm not sure I can realistically do that, at least not everyone. That's how many great people I've met along the way. But to those who have been an ally in a game, a friend outside of it or just nice enough to keep me coming back to the website, it is so appreciated. That is what this community should be all about: playing games, making friends, and competing against one another for a fun time. I’ve tried my best to keep to that thought with a calm, patient attitude while being kind to others. If I have been able to be a role-model to at least a few - I’d feel more than satisfied with me time on here.


2,373 days in the making and WOW I never thought black star would be possible. From my early days on the site all I can recall is @Ireks being the lone black star, then @M2thamax joined him. And recently @Trinity2000 made her way here too. When I hit gold star, I felt I had met my goal. Then next thing I knew I was midnight star, oh and then first page. Surely that would be enough. Thennn before I knew it I was crimson star, oh and what next top row. It didn't stop and now here I am. The point being, time really flies by playing on here. 6 years and where has the time gone. I started out on Zwooper as a high schooler playing FS here and there in study halls. Since then I graduated HS, enrolled in college, graduated with my bachelor’s degree, and now have a full-time job doing something I love. All along the way Zwooper in the background. It would be an understatement to say my time here hasn't had an impact. One I am 99% sure I am thankful for :D All thanks to randomly googling "online survivor game" nights after the Worlds Apart finale. So strange.


In honor of playing with all you people, and never being in a spot to do this. I'd like to treat this as a sort of PYN, giveaway type deal. I encourage people to comment, if you have a question for me, a fond memory of us, or anything nice to share please do. I'll try my best and respond to those that do and contribute as well if I didn’t already include you in one. Best of all, pick one gift you'd like from the shop and I'd be happy to gift it (send me, King_Canine a fr if needed). It'd be a shame to play as many ic's as I do and not give back just a little to all the people that make this place what it is. If we haven't had the chance to meet yet, don't be shy either. Friend request me and feel free to ask for a gift too and it's all yours! (Just please include the gift shop page number is all I ask)


Now that the thank you's and fun giveaway-away part is done... I'll move along to the boring part. Please feel free to skip! I'm sure only a handful of people will care to read this overly long. Given I don't have a chance to really address the Z public, at least in this manner. Now's my chance!


Why not start there actually - why have I not made a post after all this time? For those of you who might not know I'm extremely shy. More than that, I have (had?) pretty bad social anxiety. From day 1 the thought of making a post that everyone could read, similar to public speaking, was never imaginable. However, I can confidently say my time on Zwooper has helped me A LOT. Pushing myself to talk to so many people in all kinds of good and bad situations. That practice over and over again was one of the pieces I attribute to breaking more out of my shell. That isn't to say it's the only thing I did, from therapy sessions, to medicine, and putting myself in uncomfortable social situations to help myself - it wasn't easy but self-improvement is very important. And as corny as it sounds, I really do encourage everyone to try and consistently improve to be the best version of themselves possible. With this said, why not still make a post today? Well... somewhere along the way I become aware of the oddity it was to have never made a post - and I enjoy little things like that so want to hold onto that factoid for myself. While ranking up through the years, one of my early goals was to actually become the highest ranking person without a post. This wasn't all that difficult - given the fact nearly everyone has at least one post. So all that stood in my way was this one user at the time without any posts - @Ari zona28 . Something he will probably be learning for this first time haha. Yes, I chased after him in the ranks and celebrated the day I passed. The achievement of being the highest rank person without a post is silly but something I like. If nothing else it has shown a lot of willpower to keep it intact, more so than ever this very day. To top things off, Ariozna has since made a post which never fails to make me chuckle given my original goals.


Enough about me, time to address the rest of you. Here's the part where I keep re-writing because it turns out to be a whole essay long. Me trying to recap some of my favorite memories with different people. I'm still going to give it my best shot because you deserve it, even if it is a jumbled mess.


I started out playing random FS games, then moved along to LS games. There I met my partner in action, @Willz14. Though I did my best to target him in our first and second games together lol. That's long in the past and today I believe we are one of the best LS pairs out there. We've each accomplished so much since our first game together, and have had each other's back along the way. Thanks for always being here for me buddy.


I won my first LS game against @Isbnm , always a fond memory. I cared so much about these LS games it got to the point where I was even willing to go on call. In a last-minute change of plans, CosmicBliss urgently needed to call with me while finalizing a move. I'll never forget that first call of mine. And for the first 5 out of 6 years, the number of people I called with could easily be kept under two hands. That's since changed and for the better. From planning out Masterchef with @ChrisDWa and @08SaraR , discussing murders with @MissSuda , getting duped by @PacoP in LS, and so many more. More than just calling even the amount I use Discord to chat with others is something that surprises me. @ETitanic12 taunting me about Beach Ball Bounce, discussing ic's with @M2thamax and @cmgorilla , and especially talking to @Wadz13 about who knows what. Or even just getting to watch the discussions that go on with people like @mepole , @sebby113 , @Saratoga652 , @BBswag , @Nates_great , and @evanw919 . Other moments such as winning my first group game hosted by @hobotree and playing with@JacksonSunshine ,@superherotommy , and @Ari . Plus a more recent very special experience in CMIYC hosted by @Patrick71101 and @TJP1122 . Getting to sing sea shanties with @Voxin , @Brittney , and @clam_fargo and play with @Parrish101 , @Seanoh , @MOTO , and @Wild too - best of yet in a black tunic. Plus being introduced to a great friend in @TheBreeze and @NailedIt during The challenge hosted by @johnnyscott1127 . And when I'm not playing group games, or the usuals, shoutout to @AngelOfWater who plays a ridiculous amount of number games - those are a blast to play. If I'm not playing games and just want to talk, my casual chit-chats with @Dutch and @pikasadge have been just as fun too. Or a pick me up being able to talk to @Formes4 when needed. I wish I could keep on going with this, but sadly there probably isn't enough room to do that. I'll leave it at this and include an additional block of people that I have had the pleasure of playing with in FS, LS, 24/7, and many other games with:


@a07strand , @ABLaksh , @Alvi , @appatucker , @bailey5000 , @Clash , @wwxcrunner1 , @DankDrake , @davidprincipe29 , @Geri , @Ginger, @Green , @grl114 , @Guoyoung , @HKT , @Hollywoodhogan , @Ian , @IrishCraic , @Icelina , @jakethesnake , @Jaws123 , @Jay , @JohnTheGreat , @Jude , @Karmabare , @kongowongo , @Matthew1125 , @Nicolas , @Nitu , @overcome , @PeterC , @radjon , @realityobsessed , @Reece , @Royalty , @Rumen_V , @Sammy , @Sarah , @ShayNZ , @Splendidsuns , @Spyder , @SuperDoodle , @Swish , @Tone , @Trny , @Ved , @Wolfwoodcp82 , @Zach , @Zoicy



I could have gone on for each of you above about some memorable time we had together and with all these people listed I SURELY left some important ones out. If you happen to comment I'll happily have you added to it.



Finally, it'd be wrong not to mention one of the people on here, the one that is kind enough letting me send this to her and post on my behalf, @Xenia . You're one of my best friends on here and thanks so much for encouraging me to keep on playing towards all kinds of crazy goals that I didn't think I could achieve. Stumbling into you one boring day while in an FS game, and helping you with a YANTO challenge is something I'll never forget. Better yet you being my friend even after I took a month and a few reminders to gift you a game prize - and can't say I haven't gifted you more since! You're a great player and person to have here on the site, keep it up!


During my time here, even in the heat of things I have tried to be as respectful, polite, and kind to others as much as possible. With the goal of being a role model in mind. I might as well use what I consider to be a calm demeanor for good. Here seems like the best place to put that I nearly didn’t have this posted tonight as I hit a low on this very day. Feeling alone, a little like nothingness. But it is so important to keep things in perspective and focus on what’s real. All the positives in life and keep on rolling with those.


Once again, I see myself hitting black star as a time to reflect back on all the great memories I have had to get to this point. And those wouldn't exist without all the people here to play games with, the hosts for putting together content to join, and the moderators to keep it running. Thank you all



And if you are commenting, don't forget to ask if you have your eye on something in the gift shop.

Congratulations!! Well deserved! I think some of my fav memories is you giving me tips for BBB and how much you'd help out with fs mania challenges and fs tournaments, it was always fun doing those with you :). And of course can't forget when you go behind me and take away all my number games points ;). But hey it's been for a good cause! You should be super proud of all you've accomplished on the site and even in result of the site with your own personal growth that you mentioned. You are an inspiration.
