    Apologies. I suppose this is why I’ve never understood the whole “they know who  they are/what they did” approach. Even if intended as a way to be tactful or “take the high road” all it seems to do is create confusion & suspicion. It’s also largely why I’ve stayed silent on the topic. I’m actually glad we’re finally learning the details & names of those involved even if they aren’t active here anymore  

    This is true, I suppose I feel a great deal of mixed feelings about our last exchanges. Largely guilt for being a coward and not wanting to get involved. I could have reached out more but was too busy feeling unsure and easily fooled. Just more bad memories where there probably shouldn't have been. I'm not sure I could ever trust her again but if they come around I'd want them to know that I failed them as a friend. I can't, nor do I wish to reconnect and I'm sure time will change a lot of feelings. I just don't wish to spend that time here anymore, waiting and mulling. Mistakes were made/are still being made. Done at this point and I deserve the shame as I go because I took part in it. Which is okay in some ways because I learned that I needed to work on myself. 

    Best wishes and thanks for always having been there. Many blessings to you.

    99% certain this is referring to me. I’ll respond in a status update as responding here would most likely get me accused of trying to make things about me.

    It's not, why would you think that.  I don't even think this person comes here anymore.

    I will not share it publically due to a doxing attempt last year

    P.S. I also saw the massively transphobic discussion on the staff forum and I just cannot in good conscience be a part of that.

    Shit, this whole thing is appalling. It's tremendously upsetting that you were treated this way and disappointing to read about the Staff forum.

    I came back for a minute a few months ago to revoke permissions to some of my content, but at this point I'm frankly where I think anything attached to this account should be deleted - I've been doing that in plenty of places on the internet of late.  

    Same. I was enjoying the site until a fellow member started reposting my art and a few lines of poetry I had written onto their Tumblr. It was an interesting experience. Optic was able to sponge my account, considering I found that I could no longer edit or delete my own content. No clue why the feature was suddenly removed, and without warning too. Then I started reading things that were going on behind the scenes but damn, I had no idea it was THIS bad. Thanks for being open with the community. I truly regret rejoining. 

    What a shame.... It was nice making new friends here and I had hoped to catch up after a busy Summer but I no longer feel like I can support AF. The lack of concern or interest for the community and staff- remaining and former- is nothing short of disconcerting. What Wedgy had been put through really turns my stomach. 

    It was also discouraging to find out that an individual I used to chat with was... well, I suppose they did what they did (or still do, I have no idea what they're up to these days) to keep topic flow going and I'll leave it at that. I get the passion they may have had to keep the site going but it didn't really sit well with me. Although it has more to do with the state of the forum rather than being completely dismayed with them. Overall, I feel it's not worth spending the time and energy here anymore. 

    I feel so horrible that both of you are even needing to address these issues in the first place and not having your requests met is entirely baffling. Drives the final nail in the coffin about how I currently feel towards this place. You all did your best and then some. Beyond grateful! The members that still linger deserve better. Like everyone else that's been wise enough to leave sooner, I'd rather choose dignity. 

    By the way, thanks for the book recommendations on German aircraft, THK. They eventually led me to model building again, fun stuff. Appreciate you taking the time to discuss your work with me on a few occasions. Especially during the pandemic. Stimulating insight, was always intriguing to read. Be well and again, thanks for everything you've all contributed as members and Mods. All the best to you and your loved ones Wedgy. Super-Mom is an understatement.

    First time watching Hellboy with Ron Perlman. I don't think I'll watch the Shape of Water ever again. What was going on in that! Did research online and came across an article about the world of Hellboy. No canon connection but still interesting.

    I love a lot of Guillermo del Toro's films and art. 💜 The Shape of Water was one of my favorites. 😆

    Suffering with cotard's syndrome is becoming harder. I was recently diagnosed, after a lot of therapy and work. I feel more dead, I believe I am dead. Everyday I walk and no matter what I don't feel like as if i'm existing. I'm denying all life, all purpose, and now staring at the ceiling as I have the feeling of my organs falling out of my body, as I decay slowly, is my new pastime. 

    Everything is becoming bleak...I am death.

    That's pretty scary, D. :( You going to be okay?

    Thanks.  Ayreon has some good stuff.  I think their "Universal Migrator" album is awesome for instance.  (I've always been a bit of a fan of themed albums, whether it be Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall or Blind Guardian's Nightfall in Middle Earth or what have you.)

    Appreciate the extra info. :)

    I like themed albums too! A few years ago I had Blind Guardian's Into the Storm as a ringtone. 😆 Kinda nice to talk about them again. 👍 But definitely getting into Ayreon.

    I will try to binge all the anime I wanted to watch from this season but didn't have the time because of final exam. There are a lot....

    I wanted to comment something like "you can do it!" But pace yourself okay? 🙂👍

    As for me, gah! Now I remember why I dropped TG in the first place. Shuu Tsukiyama was such a creeper. Thank goodness Nishiki and Kimi make it somewhat bearable.
