I've finally found my way over here after a few days in the wilderness. This place is kind of like a gentrified pub. Yes, the names are familiar, but it has a whole new look and smell to it.

Almost 20 years ago there was an idea to start a new site - times have changed, some things I don't really want to talk about but ask the question if you want and I'll see if I answer.

Anyone going to ask... :P

Circumstances far beyond Laser's control.

He worked his arse off trying to work things out and get this new site up and running.

.... and I'm still working to regain access to the old site.  The whole thing is still "too raw" to talk about really.  Let's wait until you see a post that either says "I have access to the old database" or "I've given up completely" .... at the moment I've spent several hours each day calling a myriad of companies (begging, pleading, negotiating) to try to get access restored and my prediction is it will be the same this week as well :(

Do we know what 'Karma' is and how do we get/give it?

Transmitting good or bad vibes to people for their next life I guess. 8) Looks like you can make someone's number go up or down by clicking the applaud / smite underneath their Karma score.

Must say I missed the site, good to see it's back.  Well done to everyone with the new setup, change is always good, even when it's forced on you.

I did wonder what had happened a couple of weeks ago when I tried to catch up on the world.

Thanks so much Chris for all of your work on this and for continuing to be here for all of us.

I always thought that there'd be a day where I'd try to login and it just wouldn't exist... but not this day!

Will T1 make a fresh appearance? Can have his old username back ;) ;D ;D

Wow.  That's a good point.  Would his past record be expunged?
