RE: A few things I like about this forum
It's really difficult to create a forum where there is a sense of community but one which does not suffer from cliques. I think this forum has achieved that. People are quick to welcome to newcomers, even the trolls. What's more though there's this implicit understanding that some people need support and so this means there's less of a nasty streak inherent in other forums where you visit to debate. Maybe because we have a common enemy so there is less in-fighting. People come here for sanctuary. Add to that the Mafia games, the banter, the personal issues forum, the intimacy and relationships and giving positive reputation points makes this a place where you can feel welcome.

I've always liked the variety of active topics to read, comment on, or just completely ignore. Big Grin
From day one, I found the level of intelligence here to be a refreshing improvement over the rest of the internet.

You could at least add a window to the front page showing the newest opend threads and posts.

At the top of this page (and every page), just below the black header, there are links to the new posts.
"View New Posts" shows all since you last visited, and "View Today's Posts" is self-descriptive.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Have fun, everyone!

In no particular order:

I like this place because here, I can get away from myself for a while. The majority of my manias and insanities don't bother me much here, as opposed to the real world.

I like it 'cause it's fun here. The people for the most part are engaging and interesting people who, thanks to the physical barrier that is the internet, I can easily engage with. Not in a million years would you find me the way I am here in a real-world physical scenario.

I like it because I can and have learned so much here.

I like this place because I feel that, if I absolutely need to vent about an issue, I can do so here. Not going to stop me from avoiding it at all costs thanks to the plethora of psychological issues which cause my venting needs in the first place, but the feeling of security and support is there regardless.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: A few things I like about this forum
If I could replace the people I'd met already, of both genders, of every age, of all preferences (and afflicted with the same neuroses Tongue ), in this life with their bad ass equivalents from TTA.... I don't think I'd have ever had the displeasure of knowing depression! Undecided

No, seriously! I wish I could replace all my neighbors with ya'llz presence Hug

RE: A few things I like about this forum
I like the people Smile We got nice people here...

I like... seeing everyone's lives. Everyone has different places that they are in their lives, is facing different challenges. We got teenagers growing up and exploring stuff for the first time, we've got older people who've seen it all... There's happiness and sadness in everyone's life... I find it quite fascinating.

We'll love you just the way you are
