    I'm really liking this forum so far, I was just wondering how often the Forums are visited.

    We're not as busy as we were in the ol' days (early 2000s). But we still have a fairly vibrant community, with plenty of regulars willing to help out with your questions.

    I've been kind of the invisible moderator lately, I stealthily watch the Boards from the background. The reason being I've been busy writing plenty of gaming guides for SP, so I have trouble mustering the time or energy to post in a lot of the threads as a regular contributor.

    SP is definitely a community. Some folks have settled in and grown up here others like me stray off to other places but come back to visit. We are family. New people get a warm welcome and take their place in the family.

    Except for the things that Barmy breaks and DMC fixes. Yep, they, the newcomers, are responsible for the booze.

    Oh yes, I almost forgot the conspiracy theories. We love conspiracy theories.

    Really depends a bit on what your after too, there's a pretty good debate crowd here too, and they can get heated.

    Okay dokey, I've been on hiatus for a little bit from here (college and work come first haha), I do love seeing heated debates though! I'm waiting until after finals, but I'm starting Baldurs Gate for the first time, and will be hanging out here more often :)

    I stop by here pretty much every day, although with how utterly dead it's been lately I haven't really had the chance to say much.

    Invite your friends over, no better way to get more conversation going than having more people active!

    There are plenty of regulars here and the odd one or other new-comer.
    Most of us are here peek in a hourly basis...but the silent way.

    And we do tend to take things slow. Aged well we have.

    In winter when the mood hits rock bottom (after our wives run amok with the Christmas shopping) we tend to see topics like the one "Bye-Bye BoM".

    But it just our rally call, really.

    The thing that makes Sorcerer's awesome is the people.
    You won't find renegade Gestapo-Mods or Annoying Me-center-of-attention-posters.

    We're kinda grown up here. :D

    Aged well, my arse. I'm going gray and my hair is thinning out so my head gets cold in these times.

    Nah, I was always the lurker type. Don't know what to say? Then say nothing. There are no uncomfortable silences when I'm not uncomfortable with them.

    Ah, Henkie, my dear. I said we aged well....not aged pretty.
