When this is all over
« on: September 18, 2010, 10:00:56 AM »
After Episode 5 is released and the buzz dies down, our community will no longer have anything to hold it together...I just realized this and it's making me sad...

Even after everything calms down, there's still going to be that small, close-knit group that always sticks around.

And Pheonix is planning on making an original game, so there's still something to draw newcomers in... :P

And, I mean, I dunno, about anyone else, but back when the game was still far from release, I came around for the community. The game was a really exciting afterthought, but entirely an afterthought. :P

Still though, this forum exists because of TSL. Almost all the threads (except in the Asylum) are TSL-related.

Well, the Asylum WAS the forum for the longest time.

We're here because we like each other, I think. :P

look at all the old posts. (Like REALLY OLD)

hardly any of them were related to the game.  now that we have such a number of regular posters, we have no reason to leave.  even if there is less on topic discussion.

I had this thought when I joined though.  I didn't join till I think early 2008, and there was all that talk about the game coming out soon.  I thought I had missed all the good parts of the forum and I was just getting the end.  I also remember, before the C&D, before anything was heard from phoenix, not really that long ago (wow), when the forum was just about dead.  Like 1 post per day, total.

then the C&D came out and that brought life to the forum, and soon brought back life to the game with the whole savetsl thing.

good times.  now it feels like I have been here for a LONG time.

there ya go.

who cares why the forum exists?  we still have the community!

The Asylum also pretty much has the most posts... XD

I think it's just that people come here because they're interested in TSL, but they stay for the community.  We wouldn't be here without TSL, but I know that if I didn't like the people here, I'd just drop by the site every few months to check for updates instead of actually posting.

Rest assured, the forums will still have plenty to keep them hopping when TSL is finished.

especially cause these are no longer the TSL forums, they are the POS forums.

Agreed! When this is all over, we'll still be here, we'll just have new games to talk about. :)

I can't wait to see what you guys will be capable of with your experience from TSL.

Do you have any idea of a release date for C9? I know it's a long time away, but can you estimate at least the year? Also, will it be episodic?

Any admin besides Weldon?

Also, who just added the :whistle: emoticon? Is this a reference to :suffer:? I must say, that was really well done in Episode 2.

I added it, been looking for some new smileys. Although it doesn't look quite as clean as I'd hoped! Hmm. Well, if anyone knows where I can find a nicer looking one, let me know. :)

Someone needs to edit it.  make the white pixels transparent and change the colors and size to match the other ones a little better.
