Celebrating Six Months: What attracted you to this community...
« on: October 12, 2006, 02:26:31 pm »
... and now that we've been around for 6 months, what keeps you here?

My story's pretty simple:  I came here to escape the post-Oscar troll attack at IMDb-PT back in March, and I stay here for a couple of reasons:

1.)  I like the Board Administrator and the community and atmosphere he's made and maintains here.  A lot.  No matter what happens and who comes and goes (but please know I love you all dearly), as long as Phillip's running this board, here is where I'll call my main online home.

2.)  I never stop learning new and interesting things about this movie and about all the people who've come here because they love it at this place.

No more beans!

I joined the Yahoo board, after I first saw the movie back in March.....I didnt know message boards existed until I came onto that one accidently.....

I enjoyed my time on there and met some wonderful friends, but eventually the trolls became epidemic, and took the fun out of it.

I had heard a few other message boards mentioned, and I went into IMBD, and Dave Cullen, but when I found Bettermost, I knew this was where I felt comfortable and was made very welcome.

The administration and the moderator controlling is excellent, plus the variety of forums and things to do on here makes for a lot of fun.

I am amazed at the cleverness of Phillip, and his staff, and applaud them for a job well done.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Oh, and, because you people rescued me when I needed a life raft, entertained me when I was bored, laughed when I was goofy, educated me when I was ignorant, hugged me when I was down, gave me the opportunity and outlet to be a better me and made me crush on 2 young actors that I didn't give a hoot about a year ago-don't know if I'm happy about that one  ::)

1) IMDB trolls were really starting to tick me off ..

2) I had a few friends from PT and Imdb boards who were moving here ..

3) After a day hanging out here, it was so peaceful, friendly and I kept coming back for more ..

 ;)

The people here made me laugh. I was sick of just crying (or trying to cry), you know?
Watch out. That poster has a low startle point.

    - The trolls,
    - the big tremblay life boat
    - not wanting to loose those brilliant friends
    - or the fun or thoughtful and just downright odd conversations & posts that come up as part of a group like this.

    It's so nice to see familiar names when you log in and see posts and now put faces to those names (and ins some cases voices) and imagine them speaking those typed words to you!
