Five years ago I created a forum that was initially supposed to be all about books. Reading, writing, buying, selling, reviewing. Books books comic books books. Eventually I added a small Off Topic section for TV and general topics. It wasn't a large board. It wasn't overly populated. But it was mine and I liked it.
However the site that hosted it announced that they could no longer do so and rather than try to move it I decided to create a new forum, but shift it's focus to what you will find below. Want to talk about what you're reading? That's great! What you're watching on TV? Go on ahead. All I ask is that you be polite. And if you feel like someone is not doing the same, ask for clarification first. It's not always easy to read tone on the internet.
I have no problem with disagreement or debate. But my general rule is, 'if you can't make you're point without being a jerk, chances are you aren't as right as you think you are.' This is supposed to be a forum about storytelling that make us happy, be it in the written form, on a TV or movie screen, or up on a stage, (and CATS!). So be happy. Or move it on down the road.
Well, the old board is actually gone gone now. It was up for months after I had gotten that message saying they wouldn't be able to host it any longer. Guess finally that became true. Kinda bummed, even if it was abandoned.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
