I want to say thanks to the staff and community for putting in the work. Be it helping one another or keeping us informed in what we all love here.There are so many kinds of people, with so many different stories, who without this community would have nowhere else to go. I have learned things and connected with people I'd never have known were it not for this community. I have made friends I can barely remember what it was like to not know. I have grown a lot with the people here. I am who I am, in part, because of all of you. I would take the worst days here over the best days anywhere else because, no matter what, I believe we will always try to be better.
We must continue to work together to create a community that serves the ideals we were founded on. This is a group effort. We all have to live up to our own expectations and believe that we, together, are what make this experience meaningful. This is a challenge we should always rise to. This is a journey that should never end. There is no place else like us, and nowhere else that tries, but we are here and we try and that counts.
We must love each other. We are all we have.
All my love to you all.
I take it you haven't been on gaming side the last few days.
Eh, it's still a shining beacon compared to the vast majority of geek/nerd-related forums.
It's a much better place than NeoGAF (especially with their politics discussion forum).
LMFAO, that's even better.
A thread by an OP saying Era made him feel depressed got closed immediately for "Metacommentary", but a thread saying how great it is here gets left open?
That doesn't make any sense. Are we only allowed to smile here, even if it's a mask? That's a recipe for disaster.
