My first thoughts were "This site is alright, but it's not as good as TV.com, and I have too much there to come here." I didn't like the site that much though, because when I joined (on my first account, TVcom_Ascent; lost the password), you couldn't apply to be Editor for shows, you could only contribute to them. So I was like, "screw this site." I then came back in December, during Christmas break, where everyone was AWOL on TV.com and I was tired of my pending contributions so I joined here, where mine were approved before I could submit more. I decided to stay here, since it was better. It was awkward to get used to (like blog and profile separate, frog-looking smileys, different point system, having to apply...)

Just wanted to see what it was like over here. Didn't really start posting much until a few days later.

My first thoughts were that this site was near empty. But as time progressed, More members came and more contribution points were gained for me. (Also my Section 31 duty)

I liked the site when I first came to it. I reminded me alot of TV Tome. I never really went to TV.com, so I couldn't make a comparrison between here and there. I didn't expect to see any old members from TV Tome here though, so I was happy when I checked out the forums and decided to join.

I first visited the site after I saw the URL that was being spammed distributed across TV.com’s forum, though when I checked the site out, I didn’t register until I saw a topic that interested me. The topic was about TV.com and one of the moderators were saying some speculative comments, in which I came on to defend what was said, though by the time I fully got involved in the defense of the site, I got threatened with suspension because of the “misjudged timing” of my sudden post.

Despite what people have said, I was always relatively neutral in my posts on the early time of the forum. I mainly just defended TV.com instead of attacking TVRage, though I may have said a few things from time to time that crossed the line. However, even back then, I must admit that I was contemplating as to whether or not I should have contributed to this site, though I eventually decided not to because I was to busy with my endeavors at TV.com.

Regardless, one thing lead to another and I saw the truth about TV.com, in which I finally moved to this site full time just last month. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I hope other individuals from TV.com will eventually make the journey to this site as well.

I joined a few months ago but hated the site, I was hardcore Tv.com then, but after a while Tv.com had too many bugs that never got fixed, and the site got overrun by trolls, spammers and Flamers and the mods became Bias and started giving people TOS violations for stupid stuff like telling someone not to assume so much, so I left after this destroyed the site for me...finalized it when I got banned for sending a phantom Pm to gamespot. *-) I came here and found the site a tad simple but nice and the people nicer, not to mention no trolls so far and the mods are WAY better! :}

Yeah, I decided to have my flag represent my nationality, rather than my current establishment in good old STL. Anyway, I was just kidding earlier.
