    Edit: Oh dear, I meant to put this in Random Chat. Sorry! Move as you please.

    Hello LPA! Today marks a year from the day I began lurking here (in the forums themselves, I've been reading LPA news since waaaaay back in the pre-MTM days)! Feel free to take this down if you wish, but I just wanted to tell everyone here that they are awesome.

    I've joined many, many forums: about a half dozen forums devoted to bands, half a dozen devoted to videogames, and one pop culture forum. As I'm sure many of you know, the internet out there is a not-so-friendly place, and unfortunately I've had the experience to back it up.

    Why am I telling you all this? Because in my social experience online, there have been exactly two communities that I felt were warmly welcoming, that dealt with each of its members with respect and maturity, and that was just downright friendly: one was DreamTheaterForums.org, and the other is you guys. Seriously guys, thanks for being awesome. I may not feel yet as though I'm an integral part of the community (I mean I've only been here a year; I've been a proud member of the DTF community for around four), but already I feel as though I belong. It just goes to show, Linkin Park fans are awesome, and this forum is representative of that fact.

    So here's to the year I've been here, and many more to come! :peace:

    Because a year ago today is when I got home from college for the year and I remember that's when I started getting really excited about the impending ATS release. I couldn't contain myself anymore and decided to dig into the forum itself.

    Thanks for your support! We certainly saw a lot of new faces with the ATS release, and it's good to see that some of them have stuck around. Hope you continue to post here!

    Yeah I know I'm not a very committed poster here. :p I do drop in frequently though, I just tend to listen more than I speak. However, I'm sure with time you'll see more of me. :)
