"This site is crap"...I was young and foolish. And had a peanut for a brain. Forgive me.

At first I only joined this site so I could see what it was since I saw that a blog said "More and more people are going to TVRage". Then I went back to TV.com. Then I was banned. Then I came here and saw it was much better.

My thoughts were "Freakin copying TV.com! I'll never get too much of it anyway.". I joined cuz my friends at TV.com said to come over and look for them.

Now, I'm addicted!

My first thoughts were, this template is horrible. It took me 6 days to get banned from TV.com which allowed to me to give this site a chance. And now I love this template.

Hmm... when I first joined the site, it was easy to access and I loved how fast the submissions were approved. The only thing I didn't like was how bare the site was. There was only a few threads, and it took members like 2 days to reply to one. Finally, more members started to show up; Some being like WC who posted so damn much(we all did ^o^). Finally, when I figured out how to become an editor, I become editor for like 5 people guides; then I fell in love with the site.

I liked the template, but I didn't think it'd get off the ground with TV.com around. I guess I underestimated the amount of users TV.com banned...^o)

Yeah. I hated how the there was no one posting. I saw like 3 threads in the OT. That's what turned me away.

I thought, "Holy crap! These people actually use words like 'because' and 'I think...', not just post list after list or one word comments."

I came to this site because someone mentioned it at TV.com. I had only been at TV.com a few weeks and hated it. I didn't care about contributing, I just wanted to chat on some forums. I came here and found some cool people. I was on vacation at the time so I loved it and soaked it up, posting a lot for about 3 weeks until my vacation was over. Funny how you stumble onto something you end up loving.

I agree. I never knew I'd love this site so much. I know I hated how slow submissions were accepted at TV.com, but I can't remember my exact reason why I decided to come here and use my account which I'd created previously. I think that I decided to come out of boredom, and saw how much the site had changed. I noticed how quickly pages loaded up and loved the conversations, and decided to come and stay. Also, a lot of guides I wanted at TV.com were taken, but open here. Only 6 guides I want are taken here.
