yeah..how do i start this...
...i think i start with a little introduction
some of you may recognise my lack of precense on the board for the past few weeks (and the not that big activity the time before i didnt actually log in at all)
why is that?..well I moved and have no internet yet (which is soooo relaxing) and can only log in via the net on the campus of my university (and i think thats the point where i can start to come clean)
University?? whats a guy in his late 20s doing in university... studying some may say but some may remeber i always told you i was at the work market for quite some time..
well its time for the "shock".. im not as always stated 29.. i dont do my jobs on a regular basis (all of the jobs i ever mentiond i do or did but just as sidejobs) and i dont have fiancee
In truth im 20 years old (the date is the same just the year was fake) and just started studying (after one year of social work after my A-levels).. not all that interesting i know.. but maybe more important
why the lie aboutt he age the private life and so on???
well when i first started making omputer graphics and shared them over the net i was 11 years old (damn thats long ago)
this brought two problems.. i wasnt allowed to log in legaly to most of the forums (12+ her in germany) and wasnt taken serious a bit
Even when i faked my age to +1 so i could log in i wasnt taken serious so many members on so many diffrent boards treated me like whati was a child...
So one day i got a new account on all of the boards i liked and well... cheated
I added 9 years of experience to my profile and voilaa i was respected
and like all small lies ..there follow many others...
so when i logged on the first time to MIB II (7 years ago or so) i already had a 2nd personality...
and when it switched to MIB III it stayed...
not a big lie i know but like most of these small lie its hard to find an exit and say... hey me...im not who i told you who i am...
and so the longer i stayed i thought the more the members that know me for long would be dissapointed
but in my lattest abscene i recognised we are more or less all strangers and all of us leave out or add sth to their biography in the net more or less
but iwanted to tell you the truth...so
The 20 Year old german guy
i hope nothing changes between me and the users of mib after my "confession" and if.. i cant do anything against them..
will be off for the next several weeks again.. not cause im ashamed just cause i dont have the internet at home (which is soo awesome for freetime just with the work it annoys a bit) and dont feel like logging in in university
all of you nice holidays and a great new year see you next year
ps: maybe i inspire some of you aswell

I didn't know you back then, so my opinion of you is no different, I think you make great micros and enjoy seeing them...my son is only 10 and has the same problem. He loves doing art and I even had him on here and put his age as older so he could join. I told Spaz about it, and we decided that he should just wait really and if he does any micros I'll just post them under my account.
I think it's a good thing to come clean and start off the new year on a whole new level and I am behind your decision 100% and wish you the best of luck with school and everything, a Merry Christmas and an excellent New Year!

Saw your post and I just had to say something.Good for you ,it took alot of balls to
do come forward and tell the truth like that.Now I don't post much because not to sure
what to say most times but here this is warranted.I try to teach my son the same thing, be honest
and be yourself.By the way I great job on all of your micros as well.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

I know there are restrictions in some countries about what people can get into and the age thing is a pain. But I don't see a problem with anything. People around here are not really petty into things like that so I don't see any problems. You are still the same guy so what if you are younger.

You know what ?
I practicaly never take a look at the age on the profile... So, for me, your always the same good old Burning Bird
(I'm 30... and somewhere in my head, it's sometime hard to give me so much age credit... I'm a very big child... practicaly 2m tall kid... we're all what we are, and nothing else matter than being honest with ourselve

Is this madness ?... NO ! THIS IS MICRO !!!!!!!

I honestly had no idea...because I really don't know you.
I do know that I like your art, your micros are awesome.
I recently revealed my lie after 8 years...and if people have problem with it...they know where they can kiss it. ;P
If you ever need to chat about let me know, I am all ears!

You're still our favorite german microer, no matter your age, religion, skin color or whatever.
My stuff is free for use and I don't care about credit, just don't claim them as your own.
