    I know a lot of people came from zformtapu on Fanfiction, but some of us found LV through other means. So what brought you to the site? Or, who?

    One day, many many many moons ago, I was doing a search for either the word "Lake" or "Valor" for some other context online, and in my browsing history appeared "lakevalor.net" or some specific thread therein. I didn't ever remember visiting such a place. "Lake Valor, isn't that the place in Sinnoh?" I decided to click to refresh myself of why it was in my history, and as I remember, I didn't remember even then why it was there. But I looked around the site and figured that it had been a while since I was part of a thriving Pokémon forum, and so I joined!

    I feel like this is a very fitting thread to make my 1000th post, woo!

    While I'm in the majority of fanfic writers that notified of this place by zformtapu, I don't really count that as my first time "finding" Lake Valor. It was actually a little over two years ago, when I saw my sister sign up for a site: this site, albeit older because it was in 2016. I only have a fleeting image of someone welcoming her and noting her love for Water Types...

    A year later, zformtapu reached out to me on ff.net and told me about the site. And somehow, someway, this was the site I remembered from those aforementioned fleeting images, only by reading the name. At this point Serebii's forums were becoming quite polarizing for me (I hung out in the Pokémon anime section where HUGE debates would break out at times) so it was that fading memory of that one member being so nice to my sister that finally brought me to sign up.

    So I don't chalk it up to that mysterious ff.net user, but rather my sister and that kind soul who noticed she loved Water Types. Whoever that person is needs a high five.

    I was doing I-have-no-idea-what on deviantart and came across this comment. I wanted to check it out because I was curious about what that Lake Valor could be. It seemed nice, but I couldn't sign up at the moment, so I kept the url, but when I came back ready to do it, it was under maintenance! And it happened to be one that apparently lasted longer than it should've, but I waited (and I'm glad I did!)

    I was messaged on DeviantArt years ago. It was wayyyyy back in 2014. I checked the site out, but I don't remember much aside from the fact that the background was black back then. Socializing wasn't really my cup of tea back then, so I didn't join. I officially joined LV on May 16, 2016 after seeing the message from 2014 again. i like reading stuff when im bored plz dont judge

    A funny thing is that I was messaged by the Lake Valor account in DA on June 27, 2016, officially a month after I joined LV.

    I was invited by someone on FanFiction.net, though it wasn't this "zformtapu" that people keep mentioning. I've never actually heard from that user. The person who invited me had the username "Katkinz20" and while I never found out who on here that is, I am extremely grateful to them.

    Vigilance told me about it after he saw some of my art that I posted on /r/Pokémon's Discord.

    Ah, leave it to Vig to bring a new member here. Regardless, glad you like the site enough to stay!

    I was reached by Azure(which now changed their name here) , a very old resident of LV on Fanfiction. I visited the site 2-3 days after and decided to make an account. I am glad they invited me, I am more than happy to be here.

    I first heard about Lake Valor when I was on deviantArt years ago. I think it was through Deltheor (apologies is I spelt that wrong), since I'm pretty sure I followed them at some point. Anyway I had a bit of a look around site and left. I didn't feel like making an account at the time.
    Fast forward 5 or so years and I was searching for another forum to be a part of, and then I remembered the existence of Lake Valor. So I searched it up and joined.

    I honestly have no idea who this 'zformtapu' is. I was invited by someone on FF named 'Katkinz20'.

    It wasn't Tapu, but someone on fanfiction did suggest LV to me. I was told by some people that no one knew who it was, and by other people that it was Vig, so I still don't really know who it was for sure.

    oh man it's been so long that i don't even remember now... i think Janna/Sheep told me about it way back when as a forum that she also frequented in addition to PC, so I decided to check it out and sign up. I ended up only posting a few times before disppearing for years though because I couldn't handle multiple forums at a time rip (at the time, anyway).

    recently though vig/janna dragged my ass back from PC to LV though and the rest is the history as they say
