Thanks for the welcome!

I've been a long time lurker of both GAF (previously) and Era, but never bothered to actually register to either. I think the last time I seriously spent any time engaging with a forum was around 2005 on a White Sox board.. for a total of about 60 posts.

Hopefully I'll be able to change that and be a little more active here. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Heya everyone!
Thanks for accepting me! Mostly been a lurker in the forums i've been in, but i'll try to be more active here. This seems like a really nice place :D

... and also welcome to Trifrost and Solaris! good to have you here ... hope you'll enjoy it in here! :)
Thanks lashman!

I've been lurking here for a bit now and pretty much exclusively lurked for years over at GAF/ERA, but after the shitshow of the last few months and now Jase leaving that was pretty much it for me so decided to register today.

I just want to read/talk about PC gaming in peace.. so hey everyone and thanks for the welcome.

Is there a simple post/thread about how this place got started? I have to admit that I hadn't ever heard of it until the recent explosion over in the PC Gaming thread on Era.

so many new arrivals

welcome to OMEGALUL, DollEyes, grosso_modo3, Minerva, Sioul, Velasco, Katsyo, xinek, Dragon1893, Dan Longman, FireEmoji, finalebread, tuna_love, RedMercury, Ryna, Dekunator and hamsterstyle! glad you all decided to join ... hope you'll have a good time in here :)

and just as a reminder to everyone - i know ToS is usually boring and no one reads it ... but this timer on registration is there for a reason ;)

so please, please, PLEASE read ToS, as this forum runs on a different set of rules from most others ... just so you understand what's happening and stuff :)

Thanks for the nice welcome! I was mostly a lurker at the last place (there are now two "other" places now lol), but I'll also try to contribute more here. I'm really looking for a home to discuss PC gaming stuff without incoherent "moderation" or 10 year olds constantly posting memes. Also, I heard anime is banned here.

Thank you very much for the welcome! I'm definitely not used to having accounts approved so quickly ;) I've been mostly lurking, here and on the other forums, but it seems like an opportune time to start changing that! Very happy to be a member, junior grade :)

that's what we're all here for :D but not just PC stuff ... most of us in here play on consoles as well :) or even read books (the horror ... THE HORROR!)

constantly posting memes
do gifs count as memes? :p i like posting gifs :(

Also, I heard anime is banned here
yes, correct ... it is the law! ... well, it's not written anywhere (as far as i'm aware) ... but i'm sure everyone would agree animu is DEFINITELY banned here, lol

it seems like an opportune time to start changing that! Very happy to be a member
very happy to have you here! also - LOVE your avatar! :D

Well, here you can freely talk about PC topics that usually get people worked up, like emulation, without being called a pirate.

But, with the good, there's always a bad.

These forums have a bit of a shlooter problem, right Gevin ?
:thinking-blob:

You can change that tag to anything you'd like in your profile. ;)

I totally read books! I also play on Switch and PS4, so there.

I'm actually too old to make this judgment, but I don't think gifs count as memes.

Good. As long as that's true and that I'll never have to see "SEE STAFF POST" again, we're all good.

This is so nice. I've just started getting into emulation a bit, and I'm looking forward to learning more about it.

it's impossible for anyone to make a staff post here, there is no staff, lol ... but there is crowd moderation in place :)

ohhh ... someone should totally make a general emulation thread ... that would be sweet ... i don't think there is one yet
