Hello, this is lilgrrl07. I joined Whyville on October 4th,
2001. I don't remember exactly when I quit; I think it was around March or April
of 2002. Recently, I came back to Whyville to see what it was like after a year.
I changed my face around a bit and I noticed some of Whyville was the same and
some of Whyville had changed a lot.
First of all, there was the obvious things. Akbar's Face Mall had a new look.
The map of Whyville also changed. The Whyville Times had a new look. You could
also now see when people were whispering to each other. There were a few new
places, but nothing horribly new and exciting for me. So, the outside appearance
of Whyville was not a whole lot different.
I did notice some things had changed inside Whyville -- the "oldbie" and
"newbie" issue was almost totally gone. I did notice, though, that people still
weren't all that friendly and hung out in their groups. I really can't blame
them, though, I know I even do it in school sometimes.
Also, less people seem interested in finding a date on Whyville, which is a
relief. I haven't seen a single "single" sign yet. If you're really that
desperate to find a boyfriend or girlfriend, please go to a dating agency, NOT
I also noticed some people have started to name their face parts in Whyville
things that have nothing to do with the part itself. Sure, it may sound
cool, but it makes it really hard to find what you're looking for. I also
noticed lots of people are following the "Avril" trend, trying to be unique. It
bugs me that it seems like they're trying to be unique, yet they're all doing
the same thing.
Another thing I noticed is that people have stopped actually talking and just
chat in whispers now. It's annoying because you can never join in on a
conversation and usually end up just sitting there unless someone takes the
initiative to talk to you.
After all of this I'm not really sure if I will stay on Whyville or not. I might
just make up a new name and start over.
