Welcome back to SP. As you may realize, things may look a little different but it's all still here.
Things to make note of:
I updated the software to the latest version so your display name will be your original user name... I could manually go and update them if necessary
If you were a moderator, you may still be one but I'm likely to clean up the extensive list to something reasonable
Many forums got merged together to save on wasted scrolling space just to get to AAG
While SP was down, Photobucket changed their policy for hot linking photos, so there's bound to be thousands of broken images on here... That's out of my control
This new software is way different than the stuff that was used previously, so hang with me as I figure stuff out
There's an abundance of pinned topics cluttering everything up... This is an artifact of merging so many forums together and will be a manual process to clean up
So what happened to SP? Long story short, I was getting a little bummed on the place as it had been a great collaborative community for nearly 10 years and then went off the rails as a spot for idiots and trolls so when some big bills for overages came in, I said "screw it, shut it off" and let it die. Fortunately over that year and half I received many emails, DM's and even people giving me shit in person about bringing it back. So here's to seeing if we can restore it to a place that fosters learning and all of that stuff. I hope you all enjoy, I'll look forward to seeing what everybody has been up to.
