I love this place! :D

No seriously, I've gone to a lot of sites/forums, but this one has been my most favorite. Everyone here is friendly and great to get along with! I've accumlated more posts here in a month than the amount of posts I've written in a year at other places.

(so that should tell you how much I like coming here ;))

Out of all the forums I've been to, this one really knows how to make new members feel welcomed, and it's easy to get involved right off the bat!

I had asked a question about writing in one of the sub-forums, and not only did I get helpful answers that forced me to really look at my writing, but it helped me think about other aspects of the story!

Plus the folks here at the never-ending Office Party are a lot of fun to be with!

Sorry, I just wanted to get this off my chest!

Even though it says I've been here since Feb.2005, I really joined when it was the old boards, back in 2001. That's how much I love this place. :)

But I've been to other writer's boards and this is the best, people-wise and for the info.

So yeah, great place--glad you like it too!

Back in 2001? Wow!

Overall, one of the best features is how inviting this forum is for newcomers!

Heh. A lot's changed over the last ten years, hasn't it?

Glad you're liking the place, New Folks - we love having ya here! And SinisterCola fella - thanks for the shout-out. The AW staffers hear a lot about what people think we do wrong, so it's really lovely to hear about what people think we're getting right.

I, too, love this place. It caters to nearly all of my interests. I'm sure if I hadn't found this place, I'd have fallen into the PublishAmerica spike trap and consequently become a bitter husk and given up on writing. So AW only has itself to blame for me sticking around to annoy you all. ;) :D

...

Oh, and yeah, the people are really nice.

If Sinister has been here a month, isn't it time for the, you know *wink* initiation ceremony? I've got some goats ready and a really BIG bowl for the blood. :D

You know what's really sinister? Feng Shui in a department store.

Seriously.

Guys, guys, it's the sekrit ceremony. Let's not put Sinister off by letting on about the Thing. You know. With Haggis, Robovowels and the hamster and the egg whisk and the Other Thing. Let's just keep schtum. All the better for the surprise!

Whoops, I just gave away what the finale is... *sigh* Am I going to be kicked out of the secret society now? I'll take you all down with me! I have documents! Some of them are even legit, and not just me pretending to be someone else saying bad things! Honest!

Are we allowed to mention that it's battery powered? Y'know, since they made cray a mod and stuff?

Extra shocking. The Thing's never been so effective.

What voltage is Cray? Because it's going to take a lot of power. It takes fifteen slaves mods as it is and Mac has to whip them a lot, just to keep it ticking over.

So what else is in this initiation ceremony? I've sat on the chair, had my gender mixed up, and survived the wraith of Kelly. What's next?
