I've always avoided forums like the plague. No one particular reason, just not for me. I'd always imagined that it was a home for trolls and people getting upset about what some one else said. However one or two people have, over quite a while sent me links to certain forums. The problem here of course is that you can't see the stuff unless you can sign in. I caved in.
The NGRMonline seemed like the natural home and was where most of the afore mentioned links were taking me so I bit my knuckle and signed up. What happened? Well it was like walking into a strange new pub only to find that all your mates were already in there. Sort of warm in an incontinence way.
Does it get the thumbs up? Erm, well, maybe, sort of, possibly. I've started a couple of threads and got a fair response,answered a couple of queries that I though I had a suggestion for and been welcomed in, so all good there. But you know what? It feels too closed, too clubby. I'll give it a while and see, but I have a funny feeling that my original opinions was right; it's not really me.
