    if you did that I am not kidding once I recovered from the fact that not only was my BODY ON FIRE but my luscious locks also completely decimated

    I will hook you by your butthole to the wall with a crowbar and then beat you to death with your own flaccid penis

    SE++ is just so...incestuous.

    Which is probably why forum meet-ups work best when they're planned in SE++. A G&T UK meet-up was once planned but I don't think it went anywhere.

    To be honest it's also about what fits your life/interests. I have had no problems posting in G&T/D&D/H/A, etc., it's just that a) I don't play many games, b) I rarely have the time to join in the discussions in D&D (which saddens me, because I used to love D&D, but now I miss all of the good threads and by the time I notice them they're already at least ten pages long and anything I wanted to say has already been said), c) I do not draw/read comics/write all that often.

    In a community with this many subforums, there's going to be some division

    however, I notice many people who post on several subforums, myself included

    and I never notice much subforum rivalry, despite what some people might say about SE++ and G&T

    so I think forum relations are a'ight

    No.

    Okay, you have to have some form of attention deficit disorder as well.

    Honestly, I think the SE++ regulars have the thinnest skin of all these days. Maybe it still seems tough coming from 'the other side' but these days it's a positively welcoming environment. I honestly don't get the continued negative image perpetuated of the forum.

    Ok, maybe they still shit on newcomers, but once upon a time they'd shit on each other if there weren't any new people around. Now it's all hugs and tickles until someone new turns up, then there's a largely sanitised and symbolic 'hazing' that seems to have a strict five day limit applied to it before they're elevated to hugs and tickles status. You'd need to post actual pictures of yourself hunting children on safari in China with a NERF gun shooting depleted uranium dildos to get permanently hated in SE++ now; which is ironic because it used to be exactly that sort of thing that would grant you instant acceptance.

    Come on in newbies, there's pie.

    I just post wherever I see something I want to talk about - I am not sure if it has affected my idea of 'relations' between the forums. I started out, and almost exclusively remain in, G&T. There wasn't really any 'introduction' necessary, it just goes without saying that nobody knows (or cares) about what I have to say, so it's all a grain of salt. I always looked at D&D, but rarely posted in it. I'm interested in the presidential election, so I post in there every once in a while, but became notorious for being a jerkass via the 'strange' stories thread. I honestly didn't post in G&T for a while, and stuck in D&D, and when I did come back to G&T I got a pen for being an asshole, haha - I suppose there are different expectations on language and decorum from one bastion to the next.

    The Brawl thread always played up the G&T vs. SE rivalry, but I never really 'saw' it myself, minus some 'u guys are weirdos' - but I would say the same thing to 95% of SE or really a hefty portion of the forum in general, anyway.

    I think people that post in one forum just because they don't like people in another one are weird

    but then again some of the forums just don't suit me, but I'm not going to spend time trying to change them.

    For instance, I miss Everything Else. It was (for me) the perfect meeting point between SE++ and D&D. Structured discussion without going off topic. The topic doesn't need to be justified and it didn't get derailed. Now SE++ is too chaotic in posting style for me to even attempt to keep up with it and D&D gets to be the same 5 faces over and over again and people tend to spend more time arguing about each other than the subject in the thread.

    Arguably the most neutral forum of all is Help and Advice.

    But really, the forums vastly improved overall once we jettisoned all the assholes from the G&T Chat Thread.
