I think the topic is self explanatory enough without much extra explanation. How did you find out about the Soda Shop Message board? I'll begin with my story:

A couple years ago (I'm not exactly sure how many) I believe I was browsing the Whit's End Site for some reason, and there was a link to the Odyssey Scoop. I'm pretty sure it was for their "Where Odyssey is Not" site feature, which was relatively interesting, but what I found really interesting was what I found while I was browsing the rest of the site- The Ceiling Fan Podcast. There was a link to intern James special #4, and I loved it. I thought that was the only clip, and was really impressed with the quality of the show, but left it to do something else that seemed more urgent at the time. fortunately I still had the page bookmarked, and came back to it again sometime later.

When I returned to the site, I discovered the rest of the Ceiling Fan podcast series, and became a total addict of the show. Through this addiction and eventually becoming part of the show I became pretty close friends with our great and powerful founder: Jacob Isom. We'd Skype pretty often about life and the newest episodes of AIO, and he's consistently remind me to keep up with what was happening on his site. I eventually didn't need to be reminded any more, and frequented the site out of my own interest.

Earlier this year, Jacob mentioned the idea he had for a new message board to me and I was excited to see where it would go. I checked it out a little bit before he officially launched it, and asked if (since I was his best buddy and stuff) I could be a moderator. He caved and let me, so I was happy... until later that day when I saw Bren had been made an admin. Naturally, I figured that if Bren was going to get to be an admin, I'd better to be as well. I trotted right back to Skype and bugged Jacob until he made me an admin, and I've been fulfilling my duty as exactly that since then.

My story is quite boring in comparison to Garrett's. Ben introduced me to SS.
No elaborate story about how I ran across it one day while browsing AIO Fan sites... No discovery of links... Nothing. I'm just boring I guess! lol

I had been a sorta fan of the Odyssey Scoop for a while, I didn't really comment, but I did enjoy looking at their features and Odyssey news. Then, I saw that they had released a new forum, and I joined that very day. I had joined a couple other forums, but they all seemed so big, and no one else was really new.
But the SS was different. Everyone was just joining. I made my first post that day, and I've been here ever since.

For me it started one lonely afternoon at school. I was sitting in my room, between classes, bored and lonely since it was the second or third week of school. I went online to try to find some AIO to listen to because I missed it. I went on facebook, to the AIO page.. didn't find any AIO episodes. Clicked on their likes.. saw the Odyssey Scoop page.. and one of their recent posts was for this message board forum thing. So I went to their website, and clicked around, found the SS, registered, then went off to class and forgot about it. A few weeks later I, once again, was bored and went looking for AIO to listen to on the net. I remembered making an account here and decided to try it out. Since then I have found a HUGE AIO community I never new even existed. All thanks to that one day between classes.

Here is the picture that was posted on facebook that day... if you are interested :D some of ya'll are famous.

First time I saw the SS I didn't think much of it until someone had asked me on The Ceiling Fan forum/comment page thing if I had an account. I said no but that I would check it out.. So I did and read the different topic and then I thought "I so have to join this!" So I did. :D

Yay! I'm on your picture twice, OF!
Before I came on here, I was only part of one message board, that was even bigger than the ToO. I didn't really like it there, I had tons of people as my "friends" but I never even talked to most of them. Then, earlier this year, I kept seeing my sis come on a place called The Soda Shop, and asked her what it was. After she told me, I immediately joined, and have been coming on ever since!

My story involves A dear friend :D
I have a faio account and have had one ever since it was introduced on whitsend. It was always really boring there and I had only one good friend called Josh :D
One day I noticed that there had been a new user to come on, so I commented on his page and welcomed him. Later he pmd me and thanked me for the comment, he also told me about a much better site called the soda shop and his account there :D I promised him I would check it out and later even I made an account there. This kind young man then introduced me to all his friends and since then I have considered you all my second family, a home way from home (:

This young man is named Noah, or as we all know him... Wooton(:

I just started going to the Scoop a few months ago. There, I met Marybeth_13 and we became pretty close friends (Well, About as close as you can get on the internet ;) ) Anywho, She told me about it, And at first, I wasn't allowed to. But, My parents changed their minds and said I could get an account here. So, With the help of a friend I had it set up. Now, A few months later, I have an account to every AIO message board I know of! ;) The best part was the warm welcoming I got. Now I have almost, If not 50 people on my friends list! This place has been a blessing! Thank you! :D

My story is sort of like Liz'alike's except Kaida didn't really introduce me to the SS, I just knew she was on a forum for Odyssey lovers. I later asked her if I could make an account and she flat out said "No." But, I kept bugging her about it and she let me on. :D

Well fodo was on it for a while and I knew about it but wasn't interested. I had some real live friends to talk to about AiO already! But then people started talking about the BBP and make comments so my interest was peeked. I joined later but didn't really talk. I tried once or twice but kinda got the cold shoulder. It wasn't until weeks later when Kaida commented that I was 'spying' on those talking in chat that I actually was accepted.

I think I heard Bren talking about it, somewhere back when it first started. Checked it out, and then really didn't have any reason to join at the time.

Well, I first met Ben on the odysseyscoop and he was like "Hey you should come to the SS! I want you to meet my friends!" So Ben invited me! Thanks for that, Hermie! :D
