Ahhh, that was the name. For the life of me I couldn't remember what that board was called, but yeah, that was the first SH forum I joined.

Yeah, gods should replay or bad things may happens...

I dunno. I do think the quality of discussion on forums tends to be better and more in-depth than on FB posts, though.

There isn't much of discussion (debate) in Facebook. I hear a specialist say that is a place to groups to reaffirm their common ideas. Disagree may lead to a serious conflict, bully, etc.. I'd almost lost a friend last year. I read a lot of things that I wish to answer but I let it go - to bad for them that they think like this.

Here I may, well, lost friends too, but I feel that I can give a contribution, at list people listen to me!

I mean exactly what I said. I have no friends. Sad, but true.
Even if I did have some, I'd prefer a good old-fashioned phone call over using Facebook.
This forum on the other hand is a great place to discuss one of my favorite franchises with people who are just as passionate about it as I am. That's why I love it here. It's really the only gaming site that I actively participate in.

Well, the year is just beginning, so it's something for you to work on. It's probably your own fault, so it's up to you to make it right. I don't have many friends, I think I talk too much! Sometimes I feel that I have to say something even with a risk of lost a friend - I'm working on it. By the way, what do you consider a friend? I consider some of these members my friends (maybe they don't know).

Neat thread! Fun to see everyone's stories.

For me, while I've been around for a couple years, I just drop by every once in a while to check in on the forum and see what's going on. My post counts just under about 200 I think now...Which really isn't much, but this is my record forum for my post count. Haha. Not big on forums, but I really like this place and everyone on it, even if I only drop by while on a Silent Hill binge. So even if I'm not super active, I know I can always come back every once in a while, say Hi, add to a few discussions, and take off again without it being a big deal for me. :)

Well I still post and am glad to belong to the HellDescent forum (I joined there some years before joining here) so I stick around here for all things Silent Hill.
Maybe I can't complain about biased mainstream media if I only choose those two sites over everything else for Game stuff.
On a Silent Hill level, we are getting a new Silent Hill at least as early as next year, so there's all that time to build up momentum.
And even if I don't post in threads, I enjoy the hell out of reading them.
I'm still here because this is an electric tavern, where I can see other people's conversations and thoughts and listen to loud music/TV at the same time.
As long as forums like this exist, they will never die. New and scary gadgets might come along.
In an attempt to kill off the forum, they might invent a microchip that links you to the net without a computer.

Just as I still refuse to not write a thing unless I do it on pen and paper, there will always be a keyboard to be typed on and there will always be software to process whatever had been typed up.
I am expecting the media to degrade forums as out if touch and disconnected to anything.
But I'll still visit.
I'll still post.
I'll still read.

I like the format of Silent Hill Heaven, I'm not gonna lie, I made an account there some time ago (before discovering this place), but I only posted it a couple of times until I could not do it anymore. Something about my IP address was on a black list or something. And I never could solve that problem, I even talked to the moderators of the site (because I can still access my account, and I can even send private messages) but they also failed to sorting out this problem.

Have no doubt, you're not so far away from ten thousand post. If I reach five thousand I would be happy. In the old days of Bloody Disgusting I almost reach that number.

I miss the days when I first signed up here, around early 2011 or so. There was a lot more traffic here in 2011~2013 than there is now. I guess it's understandable since SHs got canned and not much else is happening with the series, as well as so many topics have been discussed to death. It doesn't help that there are multiple other SH forums out there, so the overall community is fragmented.

Who knows, maybe some day there will be some actual good news in the SH world and there will be a small resurgence of activity...

You think this is small? This is nothing. I've seen smaller and less active when the Sh community was in it's hay day.

It's just relatively small for me. But I'm also a member of several other boards that aren't SH-related which make this place look like a New York intersection in terms of traffic.

Not a long time ago I thought about the same thing considering how many topics have already been discussed. The first games are more than ten years old so its understandable. If there are newer topics the subjects can be hard for newer fans like me (or probably only me) to understand. We'll see what the future holds and if we will have new games to discuss.

^ That doesn't mean you shouldn't ask questions if you need clarification.

I have been a fan since the release of Silent Hill. Only a member here for a couple of years. I kick myself for not doing it sooner.....

Thing is, there is virtually no one that I know that has the knowledge to converse with me about Silent Hill. This franchise will always be my favourite. And I know I will always enjoy reading new theories ....

I guess I'm old school like that, I find a place or thing, it may take a while, but I tend to stick that one spot ...

You should see me buy a car or TV. My wife cannot stand it ....

This is the norm...once we get any news about a possible new console game, traffic and new threads will be created and we can go back to speculating whether this new game will suck or not.... 8-)

As far this forum goes?....I like the format of this forum as well. The dark green colors and theme is a lot easier on the eyes than Silent Hill Heaven. I just can't take websites that implement white backgrounds....my eyes...man...my eyes!!...>_<. SHH is a great site, but I spend waaay more time on this site because of the folks here and the setup here imo just feels and looks better.

I'm not really part of any other SH site except this one and SHH...i'm still a member of Helldescent as well but I haven't checked in over there in a minute.
Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding....these are the basic fundamentals of life....

If you can't amaze them with brilliance, baffle them with bulls**t...
