No prob.  Feel free to email me if you want to talk. :)  I had said that you weren't passionate enough to join, but since that's obviously not true, I meant that your passion would be better used once you've established your priorities.  I'd say you've done that are are still doing that, but you can call it fate if you like. ;P

Welcome to high school! XD  Those years were definitely the best compared with any other schooling, so have fun! ;D

Thank you! I think I may just stick around for another two to three years on this forum, depending on how accepting this community will be! But I do know this: If the mods and everyother team member keep up the good work on this forum, I can assure you that a big community is a definete. I swear I have never seen such an accepting community ever. On other forums I feel like a complete stranger, and on some the members actually talk bad about other members or puit them down. And on one, that I now do not visit anymore, I was defending someone that everyone else thought was a fraud. I was defending him because to me he seemed legit, and hmade predictions that eventually came true. He made claims that he worked for a company and had inside information on the next season of a show that I had liked (and still do!) Everyone said there was no more seasons, but hev said otherwise, and just recently a new season was announced. Before it was announced, I defended him, saying that even if he is a fraud, he did something that I can not thank him enough for. He gave me hope. Hope that a new season was on the horizon. Even if he was a fake, he had given me hope that the show would go on. I am happy that he did that. They should have been happy as well, because they at least got hope. Eventually, however, I was driven out of the forums by someone called DemonSlayer. I never returned. (Well, I did once... but only to promote someone... That I disliked very much. Don't ask me why I did, but I did. I don't even know!)

*Joins say* What's the occasion? I'll make Cocktails! Say, can you get the cake? Yonkey, could you manage getting the decorations? I shall try to get a dancing floor in my thread, but renting costs and expenses may make it hard. How much does rent cost per thread?

Hey, we love honesty and people who have what it takes to express things the way you did. Nothing more special than having an old friend come back and feel like home :)


About the rent stuff -> No cost! :P

FREE RENT! WOOHOO! Can I make a pool? Hey, it took courage for me! I actually thought about what I was going to say at work yesterday! During my shift, and even at break! I am dedicated to this forum. Even in the worst circumstances, I'd still pop in now and then! I can't get over how well the team has done! The team truly is dedicated, and it's amazing what sheer dedication can do! I hope you guys know that I would never intentionally hurt you!  ;D I feel appreciated again!

Heh, I actually never thought that.  I did think you were a bit misguided before, so I'm glad you've now found some direction. XD

Of course we care, of course we are here to listen and this community is as nice as it gets it's because of  people like you :D.

Either way, everyone is welcome as long as they want to be in. Whoever who wants to be in for real and that's why you are appreciated indeed :)

Thanks!  <3 I am planning to stay for a while, so I hope to have fun here! Even if I'm not part of the team, I know I've made a connection here, and will never forget it! You guys are so nice! Much more than other forums! Won't you join mine? (Don't worry, it only has nine members! XD don't feel pressured!) I do believe that this game has immense potential, and that the team is dedicated. When people come on here badmouthing you, I know in my heart that you are worthy of your cause, much more than other fan games. This game was built on the foundation of the fans, and the fans alone, and it will not stop because a few people bad-mouth it. Besides, I got to experience first hand how passionate the team really is, and I must admit, it's amazing! So whenever people say bad things about you guys, I know it's not true. And the VU incident brought the fans together, and it's probably what makes you guys so special! No other fan community has banded together to overcome a huge company like VU and actually suceded. I feel very special to have been here for that time, and I know that everyone else is too. This game has endured so much, and I know it will never stop because of what a few punks say.

Yeah, to me the VU challenge wasn't really a challenge at all.  Basically, all we had to do was show our passion.  So, I made sure our fans did that by not biasing them in any way, and ensured our team did that as well by helping them focus on the task.  I couldn't predict what would happen, but I knew that if we showed our passion, VU would show their compassion. 8)

Ah, the VU talk... one of the many "secrecy" of the "empire" huh?
Hahaha. Truth to be told, unlike Neil-o over there... It was unexpected for me, because why would VU would hold back for so long if they were really interested in protecting their IP and whatnot? Either way, unexpected after so many years, everyone was pretty much upset about it. I still remember talking to Cesar about it and reading member's comment sort of like: "Alright, guys... what now?" Overall, it was one of the worst moments for TSL team, which truly became much better with time.

Luckily enough, Catherine and Matt came along, they shaped up a nice group and did great things. I personally couldn't feel more blissfully happy to have people that actually care for real, no pretending involved, no lies, just TRUTHFUL effort and support. Not just myself, but I do know that everyone else who really support us will be always thankful to them! <3

Oh, I must add that, Neil's comment were more of a personal feeling rather than just a general overview (or a strategy). Just need to clarify that because some around here do get offended, apparently, as well as they seemed to be ticked off by the fact I don't care about their impressive free time.

Moving on with stuff that are actually interesting :D

Let's talk about your best and worst most recent moments!! :P
I'll go first :D


Worst moment (same 1st week I got to Portland): Getting lost in town! There isn't a worst feeling in the world than knowing absolutely nothing about where you are and where you are supposed to be going in a foreign place, with weird people around you in a hot day. Seriously annoying.

Best moment! (yesterday!): Mah engagement ring arrived! It is so beautiful! :D I should post some photos of it :)

I was truthful, wasn't I? I was for real, wasn't I? I am glad that the project was saved. I stood by the team in that time and I feel blessed to have been apart of that time. I believe the VU Incident actually did some good, which was to bring the community together despite our differences. We all worked together to stop VU and support the team. I feel very happy that I was apart of that!

I hope you feel better Jafar!

Let's see... My worst moment so far... Um... I bumbed into a guy at work on sunday, and I feel pretty bad about that...  :-[


My best... Probably my apology! I feel really happy that I had apologised for what I did, and am glad a weight was lifted. I no longer feel as guilty!  ;D

I feel very happy that I was apart of that!

Oh don't worry, just being here and being yourself speaks louder than anything else, and I did mention it before, real fans come around and just stick around for the right reasons and being simply honest. But on the other hand I'm beyond disappointed with some facts I have seen happen as well as disappointed with some people because of it (not you dark!).

I wonder what the problem is with some people that just stick around to mess and cause nothing but trouble, and just to clarify, by trouble I mean illegal activities, harassing forum members and violating legal documents and being completely disrespectful in one too many ways pretending no one would know or care, or at the very least they would be caught up. And as shocking as it is, yes, "fans" have done this, people I would never even expected to and I kinda cared deeply, It is obvious it was just one way because they never truly cared. Trouble doesn't mean me being here or being there for whoever who needs me, because if you ask me a fan is much more important to me than anything else, which is my job and I have done ever since 2003 otherwise this community wouldn't even be a reality, and not even NEIL would be around.

Sorry for the rant, but I felt like explaining this to you so you don't take it personally :) I don't sugar coat anything that is not allowed in this team neither in this community, neither I particularly play any games, what you see is what you get, as well with this team. So, I'm happy for knowing only very few seem that absurd.

Moving on, Dark I totally agree with what you just said, it was kind of sweet to see that many gather up and support us. It shows the adventure world is far beyond from being dead. And it is SO refreshing that the majority of you seem to be REAL and just with no DRAMA or pointless mind games that border into Illegal and just flat out useless. THANK YOU for that, THAT IS the real TSL community. <3

Oh and for the record, I'm glad you feel better :)

But of course! lol, that's how you got famous :P

Thankees say! (Why am I saying Thankees all the time now?) I rant all the time. Nothing wrong with a rant, as far as I am concerned! This community is to me a great place to be. I felt truly awful about what I did, and am happy I had apologised, and am ready for life's challenges. (I hope... Hopefully nothing too sudden! XD) I am ready for what lays beyond the road of my life. I have gotten into the car and started the ignition. I am glad that I am in a community of loving, caring people! I hope someday I will join the team, but I will find my way there honestly, earn my entrance to it. I wish to do this without my terrible mistake.
