Hi
« on: May 16, 2018, 04:07:58 PM »
Hi ex-Escapists (and others, if there are others)!

So I opened up The Escapist today, to find that the 502 and 504 errors were worse than ever. I can barely open a thread there any more, let alone actively post. It seems to be a similar situation for a lot of others. That site has been my regular haunt for a number of years now, though, so jumping ship with other Escapists seems a good choice.

I imagine (or naively hope) that some of you will recognise me, anyway, even if only from the avatar. I'm Silvanus. I'm a Londoner, I'm in my 20s, and I usually stuck to the Gaming, Off-Topic and Religion & Politics sections on The Escapist.

Howdy, and many thanks to whomever took the time to create this place to save us.

((On a side-note, remember that "Something is Coming" thread back on The Escapist, where that guy who said he now owned the site promised us salvation and cookies and a functional forum were just around the corner? I suppose we can go ahead and assume that didn't lead anywhere, then?))

Either what's happening right now on Escapist if the byproduct of someone trying to fix it or it's finally going to the dogs.

Either way, good to have you here. I think I've seen you around a few times.

Hi there!

Good to see another user :D

Exactly the reason why I recognise you. Liked the Don Camillo avatar you had for a while, but I think I like the current Niles Crane one better, even if it isn't animated.

Hey, welcome. Good to get some more people around.

Also, they have a basement too around here, but it's called the Chaos Realm.

Thanks, guys!

Hope I don't rub people up the wrong way too quickly. I want that to occur at least after a few weeks, not straight off the bat.
