    Intro for me....

    Hello there. Don't post much. Just found out about this place when I was trying to get back into INTPc after some weirdness. (Not banned or anything. No one would ever ban me!)
    Seriously. I'm cool.

    Anyhoo...

    What's the deal with this place?
    Why are you here?
    Is it going to die at any moment?
    Why did it start?
    Is somebody having a fight that I/we don't care about with somebody else?
    Are all the fun banned people here?
    Is there a bitter vibe?


    You may ask me questions in return.

    What's the deal with this place?
    It exists as a response to the vast amounts of malware and underwhelming administrative attention at INTPcen.

    Why are you here?
    The search is faster, meaning I can procrastinate more effectively.

    Is it going to die at any moment?
    Does that worry you? Are you looking for stability and a long-term forum relationship?

    Why did it start?
    Haight.

    Is somebody having a fight that I/we don't care about with somebody else?
    Yes, but this is more a pragmatic way of taking ownership of our creative output. It's a bit different to previous drama-centric secret forum spinoffs that INTPcen has had in the past.

    Are all the fun banned people here?
    Afaik nobody is banned here yet, but I'm not a mod/admin so I don't really know.

    Is there a bitter vibe?
    It's more sweet and a bit salty.


    Now, you: which celebrity have you most recently had an erotic dream about?

    I'm going to be completely honest. It was Steve Buscemi and Ryan Stiles. No idea why.

    Yes, I'm always looking for stability. But am more interested in what people think of the forum than the truth of the forum.

    Not all but many of the fun people that were banned at the old place are here.

    I think it has a better vibe.

    ...slashfic?
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    Welcome! Long time, no see.

    Grouping related questions to their answers:

    What's the deal with this place?
    Why did it start?
    Why are you here?

    See here: INTPCentral vis-a-vis INTPComplex

    Is it going to die at any moment?

    Not so long as I have any influence on it, heh. Everything I've planned for and put into this place so far is for the long-term. So, I'm doing my part, ha.

    Is somebody having a fight that I/we don't care about with somebody else?

    Not really.

    Are all the fun banned people here?

    There are some here who have been banned there, as it happens. Some fun ones, I mean.

    Is there a bitter vibe?

    I hope not.

    You may ask me questions in return.
    A jack-o-lantern avatar in January? I'm not complaining (I love Halloween and its trappings), just curious.

    See I don't think that bitter is a typo since the i and the e are not close on the keyboard. But who knows, you may indeed be hoping for a bitter vibe. Maybe it will make everyone feel more at home.

    I misread it at first, ha.

    Welcome back, L!

    I like the fact that folks who were alienated from Central (most of them voluntarily) have come here. I missed them.
