Welcome back
« on: April 27, 2009, 01:15:02 AM »
Please check the announcements forum for a quick explanation of what happened this past week or so while we were down.  I will post more details and answer questions as I have time.  In the mean time, it's good to have everyone back.  Rest assured that while there may be hiccups in the system from time to time, I have no intention of letting this community disappear.  I hope to see you all online again soon.

:D Five-eight just wasn't the same.

At least you had something to fall back on... I was jumping between 5/8 and MP.com most of the time. Both of the boards were too unfitting for my attitude towards DT and my "taste" about message boards in general.
... And you ask me: "Where's my hairspray?"

I've missed this place, that's for sure.

Me too. This is the only forum I really liked overall. I post at others, but I can't imagine spending much time at any of them. Hopefully the important people find their way back, and hopefully some decide other places are better suited to their tastes............

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

You know you've spent to much time around 5/8 if you were tempted to mention The Count of Tuscany because of the bolded word. Seriously, what the fuck is up with that?

Also, I did the same thing. Over and over again.
I felt its length in quite a few places.

Well, briang is back so I would guess all banned members have become un-banned.

I may start posting a bit more at 5/8, but DTF is my home on the internet. They actually have some good discussion on their site as well, if you know where to look. They also have some lolworthy threads.

Good to be back, bosky.

I was expecting to start with a zero postcount.  Neat that you could keep those.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

If I remember correctly we have to reset yours anyway. ;)

In this community it's always been a mod log, so I'd assume (but don't know) that that will be the case.
