the "happy web places" thread
#1
I'm writing here just because this is my home, but as some of the users here are members of the other places, they would know as well...

Of course, FanRes: this little community has growing (relatively) a lot, thanks to new users lead to us by not only search engines, but also by other members, and posts made elsewhere. I'm happy to see some of them to be very active, and I must tell there are some that acts "behind the scenes", helping me (and some other project makers) with needed files, test watch and so on. So, thanks to everyone!

Another one is, as you can expect, OriginalTrilogy - without it, this community probably would never exist. It's a lot bigger than us, so it happens to find out some less-than-polite members there (it's the rule of big numbers, I think); but I can say they are almost all very nice and helpful as well.

Then, I should mention MySpleen and Blutopia; I don't visit the former's forum, so I can't speak about it, but I read often the comments on the torrents, and they are almost always nice and polite, and, if negative, usually constructive. On the latter, I visit forum frequently, and I've found nice and helpful people there - some now members here as well!

Doom9 forum: I visit just the Avisynth subforum, so I can speak only for that; it's a very focused subforum, so someone can react a bit over the line sometimes, but I can say that even there I found help for some problems I didn't know to solve otherwise; there are few gurus there with very high knowledge, and following their advices would lead to a sure solution.

Last place I want to mention is Rutracker; I visit just the open matte thread - mainly because it's very interesting, and because I haven't the strenght to use the online translator to visit other threads... well, even there almost all members are nice and helpful, many helped me, and also some are members here, too.

So, I'm too optimistic, lucky... or both? Happy

Now, which are your "happy web places"?

I have to chose the better part of valor with regards to your post because I don't know that I'll be able to contribute the same thing to this thread, lol. Thanks for being positive though. This place is my choice for favorite based on the climate and the team work.

I felt the urge to start this thread to ideally say "thanks" to everyone involved in fan restoration projects, in a way or another, here and in those other places; probably almost none would ever read this thread, but if it would happen, they will know... Happy

Every site has it's good and bad, some more than others, but I think all those that care for the moment are members here and already participating.

Ive had a surreal few years!

Both exceptional and tragic chapters have happened in my life, that have both made me question my perspective and question my part in the grand scheme of things.

It goes with out saying to me, that what we are apart of here in this forum and others, have given me a positive escape and focus.

Much like the young me who felt a little lonely amongst the mass, who would escape into a world of the movies and make believe.
Ive felt sanctuary that has allowed me to 'honestly express myself' (Bruce Lee Philosophy!).

Much Love to you all.

You are right, I'm always happy to help, especially since there are more than) our team has so far downloaded a lot of Open Matte movies from Amazon and look forward to the appearance of many with impatience, as well as I'm still waiting for the release of Prometheus under which the material was selected)

As some of you here know, my own recent experiences with a site that will remain nameless, really did jade me something terrible. I have been unwilling to make posts like Schmidlapp's because of it. To me, trust amongst members, is very important. As is honesty and basic respect. When those things are mocked and destroyed it can make it so difficult to even think straight sometimes. I know some here that know me well get a little nervous when I speak my mind and I respect that. The great thing is, they don't punish me for it, even if they ask me to breathe a bit more, lol. It's also hard because some of those members belong to other sites and how they are here might not be how they are there. That puts me on edge especially when considering how I'm going to word this post or that post. There's always someone that takes the extra step to make sure what might be said in confidence or blowing off steam ends up in the wrong hands. I am a team player as long as the team is all on the same side. When the deck is stacked against you already, it becomes almost impossible, to ever be a part of that team. My contributions to team projects earned me my respect from others I've worked with here. I cherish and greatly appreciate all that it has afforded me here. I've made a few friends as well, which is a bonus, and a most welcome plus.

My personal life is guarded. I don't really share much. I do have some hurdles I'm working on over-coming. I'm so very glad that at least here, those that might not have good intentions towards others, are brick-walled by those who believe in better here. Thanks to Schmidlapp for the inspiration.

@jetrell fo. In this virtual world, where (almost) everything is anonymous or masked, your personality has still managed to shine through. That says something about your character good sir, it's been a pleasure.
F**k the soap opera, your the captain on this journey.
