The internet and MMORPG are basically our second life. Treat it as another dimension, where anything you have done in the second world will not affect your first world, that is you "RL".That doesn't mean we separate both of them completely, we had fun. I understand what you mean by being treated as family/friends even if we're complete strangers. That's because i've been in this guild for more than 4 years and they're sorta like my best friends where we share our secrets and chat about anything almost regularly.
What's even better is that you do not have to run 3 blocks anymore to meet your friend. just click on that login and press that "nudge" button!

Hopefully SW:TOR will bring us all back together like that, unfortunately FFXIV proly won't be played by the brunt of us, but still that doesn't mean I can't build memories there, too.

Sometimes while we were healing after taking down all the placeholders, we would just chat about nothing and everything. I cherish those times in FFXI cause those times where how I made such incredible friends a thousand miles away. Real or not, I wouldn't trade those moments in my memory for anything. I would see him scanning the different mobs in the area, that very slight, almost unnoticeable tick-tick-tick of the head of his character moving around as he scanned the area and he'd come to rest on me and then we'd start chatting again.
I remember all the details of those moments because they were just so cool. Being able to connect so well with someone in a completely fictional world. That is just incredible.
MMOs have truly changed interpersonal relationships. I like to believe it's for the better. ;)

In FFXI I did so much crazy stuff, I found all 5 assault staging points as a naked lvl 30 rdm so that I could get my Blu af weapon. THAT was fun avoiding all the true sight mobs and suchXD. I even accidentally got me and my friend killed trying to get the one in the reef placeXD. 3 imps, me a naked lvl 30 rdm and a level 60 thf, he flees and runs to the zone doors and dies there from aggro, I ran down the wrong hallXD. Then my leader came out to raise us and she caught aggro after she raised me...I was so sorry but she was like don't worry about itXD
Or the time I first met Mr. Stompy in the highlands, he didn't like my little level 18 rdm...
But I have to say the funniest thing was when I was doing my first dynamis run and no one warned me about the assist macro or "auto-attack off" thing. I accidentally woke up a smn mob, all there was was Astral Flow spam...and my leader wondering wtf happened and making sure every had their macro's in order. Lol epic fail on my part lucky no one knew it was me=>_>=

where the MMORPG is still a very very fresh category in Gaming society, majority of the pople were still a newb, and we helped each other out almost every single day
was so much fun, people were so active, they didnt login just to grind, but we login to chat, to find something new, to ask what the other members were doing, share stories in game even though we never met
there's even ppl whom i leveled up with together from level 1 to 99, and we still chat with each other on MSN, and would sometimes talked about the old days and laugh together
i even celebrated my birthday once with them in game, they login just to attend the virtual party i throw, i know it was crazy, but it happened, and im sure most of you guys did that once too, i refuse to go out on a Christmas eve dinner party because they have the Christmas event in the game,
so much fun, but im so sad, that the generation of today's MMO community wont be as fun and as lively like the 1st generation MMO does anymore
altough im expecting it on FFXIV

I won't mention most of them unless one of you catch me in one of the games I play, but one of the more tame things I was a part of was making a group of blond dwarves in EQ all named some variation of "Athaf". We would just change the vowls, ie I was Athuf, there was an Athof, etc. Since we were usually on at the same time and all in a group, we liked to make sure that the zone knew we were there. To do this, we liked to shout songs, like the dig song from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
For those not familiar with the song, it went,
"We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig,
Dig the whole day through!
We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig,
It's what we like to do!
There ain't no trick,
To get rich quick,
When you're digging with a shovel or a pick!
In a mine!
In a mine!
Where a million diamonds...
Oh the stories I could tell...
