It has been over three years since the Off-subject areas were locked and I think time has passed to where we can bring some of them back. I think bringing back Getting to Know You and Forum Games would really help this place. This place used to be as busy as a beehive. I know that Off-Subject was the place that started all the drama and the problems that caused them to be shut down, but I think time enough time has passed and all of the people who caused the drama have long since moved on. There is a whole new generation of forumgoers and I believe that it would help them get to know each other and make friends much like I did when I got started on here. All I ask is that you consider it and maybe help bring some life back to this place.

While I wasn't actually around the forums when the off-topic stuff was still open, I think having a "getting to know you" topic would be pretty cool.

We have that; it's called New? Introduce yourself!.

As for the other thing, off-topic has stayed closed because no one is interested in administrating that area. I'm certainly not, anyway, and I'm probably one of the most active admins here.

I'll take my old job back. I used to mod that area so I'm not stranger to the job.

I remember back in the days where this used to be a thriving community. Coming back here and seeing the current state of things here actually gets me a bit depressed. I mean this forum introduced me to both the works of HP Lovecraft, and to Yugioh the abridged series so that's something I mean how many posts does this forum even get anymore? While i'm sure that a big part of the lack of posting is due to the lack of updates in the past coupe years, I remember even back when I was on the site that the off subject parts of the forum seemed to contain the vast majority of the posts. I'd really like to see this place become an active community again, and although re-opening the off topic sections of the forum would certainly not accomplish this by itself, I can't help but think that it would be a good first step.

The sad thing is, that it really does feel like i'm shouting into a void here. I'm worried that this won't be read.

At least they might hit us in the face with some awesomesauce styles later this year. It's our time.

Well i'd be willing to help out around the forums in any way i can, but i don't think i'm trusted enough (as since i've been gone for 3+ years i may as well be a new user) to be given much responsibility.

Still not interested, sorry. Probably won't be unless H*R comes back with a vengeance, which isn't too likely.

I remember this forum like it was about to happen in a wavy flashback.
