Hey there!
 
Share your life on mars! How you found it, how you met your friends, when you lost them, including the ones of you before you signed in!
 
Here's my story:
 
I found Mars Explorer when I was 10. I just learned what a solar and lunar eclipes were and was fascinated with science and astronomy. I was being homeschooled at the time because my school wasnt great and all and i was also fascinated with the Apple's widgets and would keep looking for widgets. I looked at the games and saw Mars Explorer. I was curious and went on it, downloaded it, and played it. It was so fun that i stayed up all night playing it and actually thought that was what Mars really looked like. After a good 2 months it, Mars became 1.0 so me being curious, decides to download it and notice all the features. It wasnt untill 1.3 came multiplayer(I think) but didnt know what to do so i just choose "Single Player". After 1.4 and 1.5 I choose to see what would happen if I put my name in and I hated my name so I choose Sonny Son. So many people knew how to fly so i went back to the single player to try it out when i saw Tutorials and learned how to fly. I loved it. And about a few days i met a girl name Meg and had a crush on her. I followed her everywhere when I met Fly and Flyclub, I tried my best to be beat Fly in lazertag but he always beat me. I always tried but then one day he didnt come back. Me being little i was crushed. But then I met Macdane that told to dont take it seriously. And I was terrified of him when he said he was a 40 year old. Me thinking he was a pedo stayed away from him. But after awhile i met Kruncher and learned he could kick my ass really easily in lazertag. But for the longest time when i was little he was someone i wanted to surpass(which i am so livin a childhood dream :D). But after awhile Meg was gone and i was crushed again and quit until 1.9.4. I brought my sis into it and started playing it with her and teaching her how to do everything on there and would race her everytime on lava racer and lava skipping.
 
So thats kinda my story here on Mars, whats yours?

I was derping around on the Plexpedia site and found it...I met people and made a bunch of friends ^_^
But now I don't play the game itself anymore (I just come on here to message friends) because my computer wouldn't let me for a while now. Oh well.

It's more personal.  Not about just anything.  It's about how YOU got onto this game.  Not something funny that happened in it.
EDIT: Do you really want to know my story?  I could fill a giant post about it XD
EDIT #2: I think that I will make a less detailed one on the forum and post the real one on my Kingmen site.

In early 08 our school got the Marsxplr app and that's where I started playing. I quit though after school was out because reading to me back then was so much awesomer than computers were.
 
In about May 2010 I got sick and was tired of playing RPG flash games, so I remembered the awesome game that I used to play, and started playing it while being sick, and I had fun and played it more and more.
 
In August 2010 I registered, after days of intensely watching the forum interactions so that I'd know how the community works. So I made an account, bammed an old post, and then started mostly following the rules.
 
Sometime in later 2010 I joined the ACC, in December I started getting into some EPIC dogfights, and my DFing skills improved.
 
Fast forward a bit to mid 2011 and I think that's about when I started playing the forums rather than the game. Later I found Reddit and was spending less and less time total on Mars at all, still going on the forum more than on the game though.
 
Then I FINALLY managed to convince Ssemodnar to start playing the game, and now I spend more time on the game than on the forums.
 
And now I'm mad at all this crap that goes on in the forums perpetuated by You-All-Know-Who.
 
Now I'm trying to get some of my other friends to join in...

I got bored one day and downloaded random widgets.  Didn't actually play Mars Explorer until about a month later, under the name Churro.  I was taught how to fly and shoot and stuff and then I watched a few Youtube videos that inspired me to start to play as Batman.  I later decided to register, but when I tried, Batman was already taken, so I added 29, (My lucky number), to Batman to make Batman29.  That's how I got started.  There's a LOT more to it than that, but if you want to see the detailed version, go to my Kingmen site where I will be putting up a MUCH longer version of this story up of this:

I was 11. One of my friends was playing games during class. One of them was Marsxplr. I asked him about it, and he told me its name. Thus, I tried it out and have stayed on ever since.

I got on when I was about 7. I was browsing widgets on apple.com. I started at 1.9. My first attempt to create a world was when I was 8. Failed. Second attempt, I think I was 9. Failed. I think I got banned when I was 9 or 10. I attempted again recently, and success. Now all I have to do is have AbisterBlock export my world. I have many worlds in sketchup waiting to be exported.

I was derping around apple's widgit website when I found this game. I was in the mood of playing a 3D airplane simulation/ 3D car driving simulation.
 
And I found this.

After a computer test in class, we were allowed to go on websites and play games. I looked over to two boys who were sitting next to me and they were both playing Mars. I, being the person who takes forever on tests, didn't have the chance to ask them what they were playing. I looked it up that night and found the world of Mars Explorer. At first I got the widget, but now play on the website. Been playing ever since.

This seems to be the pretty typical history of people who play the game but now don't.
Why reply to this coment though? For three reasons.
 
First, because ponies are awesome.
Second, because 4chan.
Third, because you misspelled "Aiur".

Most Zerg noises are hard to reproduce as well. Arguably harder than Protoss sounds (except for probes. What are they saying!?).
