    Joined PEX in 2003 but somehow, became active only after 3 years. Focused more on posting about PHL basketball history as I don't think I would've been credible writing about the NBA or the local collegiate leagues.

    Been a phenomenal ride from thereon - until PEX asked me to become a moderator for the PBA board. I was, of course, flattered with the offer, but it's been a pleasure. 

    There are times I wished I could've joined PEX in its formative years, but I wasn't privy to how online forums worked back then. 

    I don't think there's a day that I didn't open PEX as it has become my "break from the routine" at work. Whenever my mind jams up and couldn't think productively, I disengage and go to PEX to unclog my thoughts. It works!

    Congratulations, PinoyExchange, for 22 remarkable years! Here's to 22 more!

    Joined PEX recently but i was already an old time lurker. PEX to me is like a repository of the Philippines internet contemporary culture of the 2000s until present. A gold mine of juicy conversation of anything that happened in our country, and the world these past decades. It is also an internet version of the Filipino sari-sari store front where people from all walks of life interact and have fun. 

    Happy anniversary PEX! May you continue to be strong and resilient in this dynamic internet era.

    Joined PEX around 2006. Ni recommend ng officemate ko. Lurking dun sa mga jobs sa call center kung san malaki offer. LOL!
    Di naman ako nakalipat then got sick around 2007. Spend my time online kaya medyo naging active during that time for almost a year. Found some folks who are interested in the charts from another forum who are also PEXers then they decided to create the PEX Music Charts thread. My chart geekiness got rekindled and shared some lists there. Also, got active in the IMTV threads since fan ako ng reality shows. Madalas akong magreply but I won't hit submit since nangingibabaw pa rin yung pagiging introvert ko.

    PEX became a source of Entertainment news and entertainment na rin because of those threads on GMTV.

    Congratulations on your 22nd anniversary and more years to come! :plus_one:

    I was not there when PEx started, I was just 12 and had no Internet access! But I learned about it because they had a radio show Speak Easy hosted by @Mister Dean . Joined in 2004, became a moderator in 2010. PEx will always be a home to me no matter what. Happy #PEx22

    I started lurking in PEx back in 2010 where I got to know everything and anything about Filipino pop culture and more! I met some of my friends in PEx too.
    I started becoming active in 2013 and I didn't look back....

    Happy #PEx22 and more power!

    Been lurking way back 2006 and did it in the years after that.  Just posted in 2019 in the darkest year of my life.  PEx became my sanctuary. 

    Happy #PEx22 and more years to come!

    on January 26, 2008 , i registered on Pinoy Exchange which is referred to me by my cousin , actually sa PEYUPS sya pero meron din sya account dito 
    my first ever first ever PEx UN was @badmike , ang "balwarte" ko noon is GMTV;
    isa ako sa "mga pasaway" na PEX personalities sa GMTV  , sabi nga nila,  tagapagtanggol ni Angel Locsin laban sa mga [email protected] bashers nya that time
    ilang beses din na ban , pero after nun  GMTV "martial law" medyo tumino na , lalo na nung naging KPExer na ako 
    ang saya saya lang nung mga panahon na yun sa kasi pampawala ng stress ang PEx , pag na se stressed nga ako sa business etc, lo login lang ako , bubu bwisitin ko lang si ateng balugz , ok na ako ulit :rotflmao:

    pero seriously malaki naitulong sakin ng PEx , kung paano maging matured , sa social media , , bago pa yung " think before you click " nauna ang PEx magturo sa akin nyan 
    at take note mas madami ka matutunan sa PEx kesa sa Facebook , Twitter , totoo yan

    tas I'm a PEx pin addict , , kaya sobrang sayang yung mga pins ko nung nag change ng user interface si PEx :mecry: 
    tas yung KPEx records namin nawala  din :bop: sabay sumbat na lol

    ganun pa man I will always be a proud PExer no matter what , hindi ko ito pagpapalit sa kahit anong social media platforms and apps ngayon

    laban lang Pinoy Exchange
    Happy #PEx22

    at least sa pex may interaction ka sa ibat ibang tao and our social life is active

    Malaking bagay na meron pa ring Pinoy Exchange sa panahon na lumiliit ang demokratikong espasyo sa lipunan at may tahasang paniniil ng mga karapatang magpahayag at makipagpalitan ng mga kuro-kuro.

    Proud ako na sampung taon na akong naging bahagi ng komunidad na ito at dasal ko ang marami pang taon ng pagbibigay tahanan sa mayabong na diskusyon ng mga Pilipino.

    Signed up in 2008 dahil sa PBB. Batch nila Ejay and Robi. Fast forward to 2020, nawalan ng franchise ang ABS-CBN and PEx served as a way for me to connect with fellow Kapams. 

    PEx kept me sane na rin for most of 2020 since hindi ako masiyado nakalabas. Maraming taong matatalino dito, they know their pop culture well and marami akong natutunan sa kanila. 

    Happy 22nd year PEX!

    2005 palang nagpe-PEX na ako dahil naghahanp ako ng materials for my research about Katorpehan. ALternate ako sa Peyups at Dito. Pero nung 2007 lang ako nag sign-up, naglurk lang ng naglurk madalas sa PBB thread at syempre KPEX. 

    Salamat, Pex, dahil labanism pa rin ang form na to! Dahil dyan, labanism din ako para sa inyo. Mwah mwah. Tsup tsup.

    I "grew up" with PEx. Started using this platform only a few months after it launched. Now a PExer for 21+ years. Started with campus topics to Buhay Pinoy, and as I got older, found talking about Kapamilya shows as a huge de-stressor. I appreciate the smart discussions in a Gen TV thread which are not limited to TV shows but, usually, revolves around current events.

    Happy 22nd year, PEx!

    I remember receiving the PEx "Pioneer" pin years ago.

    I joined way back Sep 1999 after being encouraged by a (former?) Admin here.

    Met more people and friends too.
    Friends from outside PEx joined up and we hung around (both online and offline) a lot.
    The virtual chats and discussions eventually became real -- eyeballs and all that, and helped develop lasting friendships until now.

    My hangouts --
    Visas and Immigration
    The Working Filipino
    Call Centers and Call Center Jobs
