Dear S-R Oekaki,
This is not a try-out. This is a thank you to the wonderful creator and members of S-R.
Eight years ago I was an avid member of this community (I bare my old username, Jazzy_O). I was OBSESSED with drawing, and would do it everyday. I got my tablet pen specifically to draw here. My friend and I would log on ever day to draw, it may have been a little unhealthy.
The day I made it into the advanced portion of S-R I thought I'd die of excitement. I bragged to everyone!
Tonight I had a fleeting memory of this place, and finally found it. Admittedly, I have lost most memory on how to use the drawing thingy, haha, but using it was just a trip down nostalgia lane.
I remember the girl who drew platypusses from the inquisition, and talking about Super Smash Bros, and how the creator wishes film animation was still as popular as it was in the 90's, and so much more.

To sum it up: THANK YOU for all the great memories. This place was my first obsession. Since then I've become an adult, but have always kept this place in a special part of my heart.

Love and happy doodling,
Devin

Hey Devin,

It should still be around for as long as Krista keeps the server up... SROA is gone, but this place might not meet the same fate.

Thanks for stopping by. :) I was also here about 7 years ago.

Hey there <3

Thank you SRO for being the most awesome place to be back in the day :) I must say that I have actively pursued art as well and still talk to some of the friends that I met here :) This place will always be an awesome memory and I will never forget it! Thank you again!

-Jillian :)

Amen to all that's been said.

I also remember being in elementary school and perusing the pages and archives of SROA, hoping that one day I would be able to draw like them. I remember trying out for SRON twice -- and failing the first time and being only more determined to improve. I've never improved so fast since then.

This place definitely helped foster my love for art.

(Ps; your username seems a little bit familiar from my creeping days? o: )

Too bad the good stuff all happened "back in the days"
I've been here for over three years now, and at some point there were some technical issues here, and a lot of people got disappointed and left..
I too was a proud member of this place.. Now I just occasionally check out new stuff, comment on things, but hardly draw anymore.
But yes, there have been some wonderful times here..

This made me so saaaad D:
I used to go on the beginner board every single day! And I would stalk the intermediate and advanced boards and the day I got in here I was so happy! I even had a little life plan to get into advanced by my senior year which never happened because it closed!

Just stopped in here randomly, and I have the SAME feelings... I haven't been on here in ages, but this place will always hold a special place in my heart. I joined in January of 2003 (age 12).. I kind of grew up here.

It's kind of funny and interesting how a simple website could mean so much to so many people :)
