Wanting--no, needing--to give credit where credit is long overdue.
You run a damn fine site here, Vekseid. I think most of us felt the sting of the loss of E even for the better part of a day. It is more than just a place to post and share stories. It is a community, in the strongest sense of the word. There are far, far too many people here I have grown fond of and can call friends just in the brief 6+ months of time I've been proud to call myself a member. I'm not sure just how many members feel like me, but I can bet 95%+ do. For me, personally, it is more than friendship and creativity, too. I can safely claim that E has helped in other aspects of my life, as well. I've suffered from severe clinical depression for years, and while I started taking medication for it less than a year ago--I didn't even realize I was that depressed; I thought it was simply how life was--the camaraderie and sharing and simple joy that goes on here is indispensable to me. You're the first thing I check in the morning on my laptop, and the last thing I see on it when I log out every night.
Vive le E...and vive le Vekseid!
