Initially I'd been a long term member of another site and was a moderator there. Absolutely loved it there and the small community that became akin to an online family. I browsed one night, just happened upon Elliquiy, and thought 'great, a similar site, so a similar situation'. Unfortunately it didn't work out like that, and I didn't enjoy Elliquiy first time around as I found the site too big, too confusing, too crowded, and too fast. But I didn't give up, just visited randomly, occasionally getting into RP's that sadly never worked. About three years ago I decided to either make a go of it, or drop out completely and for some reason it began to work for me here and I found my niche. My original site unfortunately was closed and I asked some of those I wanted to remain in contact with to consider Elliquiy, ( which they did) and it worked even better with one or two familiar faces here that I knew and loved.
I love it here now, granted I don't venture to all sections of the site, but where I go I enjoy and participate as time allows.
And...I've still got the three original friends here from elsewhere here, plus a little parcel of new friends that add to my reasons for remaining happily here.
