    I first started posting back on Afronet
    there was $$Rich$$, Baller, myself and a few others
    who are no longer here. Destee was an administrator at the time for Afronet
    and the forum was jumping. Then things changed. Destee resigned from Afronet
    and the poets started having problems with haters on the forum and when complaints were
    made to the admiinistration over at Afronet, nothing was done. Many of us were resigned to our fate of either grinning and baring the haters or leaving altogether. Many of us chose the latter, but during that time, Destee had created a new home one we affectionately called Destee's Playground...She sent out the call to those who wanted to be a part and a mass exodus began and we entered into this promised land of Poetry. Time back then was simple,we started out with just a few forum topics and a few poets, but the flow was evident in this place and we started growing by Xtreme numbers...Now this is a place that is overflowing with skillz and talents beyond poetry and this is just the beginning....the best is yet to come...

    A friend of mine told me about this site a while back. She caught me online one day and brought me over here to register on the forum. I did and she showed me around. She and I chilled out in the chat room with a sweet, sweet woman by the name of Remby. :D And I've been hooked ever since.

    I use to be a member of EbonyLove, it started getting boring, and I was having some trouble on it. I told myself I was done with things like that. Then a friend of mine put me on to Destee. She said it would be fun for me. Got to tell you, she was right.

    I was doing an online search for famous Black Pisceans, and found this site.

    In 1999 I was new to the internet and typed in "african american" in a search engine. It brought me to Afronet, which is where I started chatting under my former name, "Sparkle." There I met Destee and we hit it off right away. I especially admired the sister for all that she is doing and wanted to be a part of her "family" so I became a regular. I've visited other chatrooms but have always returned here. I've always liked the fact that this community is designed for us, is about us, and was done by us. Destee.com is more than a chatroom or discussion forum...it truly is a community.

    Pleace :heart:
