I love this community more than words can say.
The approval process will always be my absolute favorite thing about it. It helps keep our community a safe and tight one. I know that might seem like nothing at first, especially if the approval process frustrated you, but once you're around for a year or two and take a good look at the community and the similar characteristics everyone has, then you start to appreciate it. It truly does weed out any creepy, hostile, and otherwise harmful people that try to get in and ruin the secure environment we have here. A site like this, that has a high female community and allows sexual content, would generally get a lot of creeps coming in to cause drama or otherwise be here to use E as a meat market, even though we make it clear in the rules that we don't appreciate that type of behavior. Sure, some people do slip through the cracks (and they eventually get caught), but for the most part, the approval process helps avoid that. This is especially important if you've been on a different 18+ site that didn't have some sort of approval process or rules against those types of predatory behavior. It's safe here. A safe haven.
I also love the enormous acceptance for lgbt+ people here. The inclusion and protection of lieges here is also something I love dearly about this site. I am not a liege, but I am a huge supporter of lgbt+ rights, and I wouldn't be here if this site wasn't as accepting as it is.
And, of course, the community. There are some of the most amazing people here. Kind and sweet and friendly. They also make this place home.
I've never come across another site like E. It's unique and amazing and home.
