I like to think of this place as a big cookie, with a bunch of nuts thrown in... Or more like a big tech forum ham with side dishes of humanity peas and funny brussel sprouts... er, kinda lost what I was trying to say...

Ahem, so yeah, this was the first forum I joined, and still the only one I visit regularly. It has taught me so much I can't even start to tell you. And I think I may have made a few friends somewhere inbetween keypresses.

I DARE anybody to find a better, funner (not a real word but it fits!) forum.

Well this wasn't my first forum, but we are a more tight-knit community. Forums I started at were kind of like a bar or rec center feel, nice but you dont get more then simple friends.

Here we are like a small town. Almost everyone knows eveyone, and gets along. Coming here for me is like a typical hang out, some place you go with your friends after school. So thats way I keep coming back and don't like it when I'm gone for days.

And bicostp, thats a lie. You just need more people to show up and post.

Well I've been to a couple boards...
(Not in any particular order)
-SteamPowered Users Forums *Full of spammers
-Team17 Forums (Worms World Party and such) *Pretty fun place, but I don't go there anymore :(
-Guru3d Forums *Went for just for a bit
-Showbiz2 Forums *Brother of SPUF (Steampowered), pretty fun
-SteamPowered Clan Forums *Joined the clan for a bit
-GameTribe Forums *Current clan

But BenHeck's the best!

This is the first forum I've been to, and hopefully the only one. I like coming here after school to read the threads and what not. I just hate it when I'm gone for a day or two, because I always like to read the posts.
This forum is like a small town. Plus we all talk (type, whaterver...) like normal intellectual people.

I love you guys!! :D

Of course! You too, Luc. The mods are some of the best people here! :P I have yet to find a reason to hate any of you. :lol: And yeah... when people forget to search is really the only time people get flamed. But that's the same in ANY forum.

I've only been really active in two other forums besides this one. Others I just post once or twice in to ask a question. (E.G. GameSX) Those two are:

www.electro-tech-online.com: I was part of these forums long before I join up of even heard of these ones. They're very helpful for any type of electronic question... but it's a large forum, and there's like... NO humor there. No one knows anyone. They're all too stuck-up there. They all think they know more that the other one, and they flame people for asking stupid questions. Spammers are more common there too. I don't really post there anymore.

www.mtsuanime.com: These are the forums for the Anime Club I'm part of. Some of you may have heard me talking about it elsewhere on the forums. I joined up here in October 02 of 2005. Long after I joined here. They stole me away from here for a while, then when they went on winter break, I stopped posting there, and came back here. They just came back from break, so I started posting there again a few days ago. Now I'm juggling that forum and the Benheck forums. I'm one of the top posters there; Number 7, ATM. However... about half or more of these people are just frightening. They swear ALL the time... and they will pretty much talk about anything from how babies taste, to how large someone's penis is... :( seriously. Of course, it's all in good fun. None of them really mean anything they say, and I know this, because I talk to the actual people in person almost every Wednesday after the club gets out. (We go to the internet café on campus and "socialize" for about an hour.) They're all college people... so you guys can imagine what some of them are like. :roll: I'm 15 though, so none of them can even tell I'm not a college student. Save for the ones that actually KNOW I'm only 15.

For example... if I posted a thread like this on the MTSU anime forums, someone would have surely called me "emo" by now.

I've gotta say, even though I just joined, I've been watching you guys for a while (*gasp* STALKER :shock: !) and you guys are such a tight knit group. You're a bunch of guys with something in common, who help other people with that similar trait. You're not mean or rude, you're fair and I've got to say that I'm happy to be part of said community. :P :(

PS:Rock on Extreme Jesus. I just recently got an Alien Workshop deck, neon yellow griptape, blue titanium trucks, and ricta wheels :shock: :) it rox so hard

Ohya? I have a blank West 49 deck, with Destructo trucks, Bones Reds bearings, and Flip wheels! I don't skate anymore, but it still rocks!

Sweet man. I really don't skate that much anymore either, but that's only because of the fact that a company bought the Vans skatepark near where I am. My dad is actually friends with the owner. It's a really nice shop. They always treat me well. Unlike at Vans, where it was just a bunch of incompetent teenagers :evil: . Stuff like that can really tick you off. It's like Me: "Hi, could I get a new set of trucks?"
Teenage moron at Vans "We don't sell cars here"
:roll: That bad

Although I have yet to build a complete portable, I would've fried my SNES much earlier without all your guys'es...es help.

Mind you, this just ruined the group hug:

Code: Select all

And this even more when I submitted it...

(Mind you, Luc does get a bit power-mad with locking threads every now and then)

GROUP HUG!!!
