Well, isn't that a surprise. I didn't think a site like FAC would survive the Web 2.0 era, but here it is still, defying all odds.

Good job.

Yeah, we're still hanging in here, with some spurts of decent activity, in spite of all morbid proclamations about Deadness. Wink

You've been around before, then? Chances are you were before my time.

I joined in the early 2000s and by 2005 I was a regular (this is a throwaway account I made and abandoned in 2009, hence the uninspired name). I'm feeling nostalgic just looking at the site's overall layout―the oldschool PHPBB forum, the main page designed for 1024x768 displays, the poor quality art in the "Recent Pictures" feed and so on.

I see that pretty much everyone from that era, except for the admins and a few moderators, has left. Oh well.

Some things never change, and Sturgeon's Law is one of them.

Yeah yeah, the 90-10 rule and all that.

So, how have things been around here in recent years?

Alive-ish, anyway. I wander back here for awhile, wonder why I did, wander away, then wander back again... lol. You were way before my time, anyway, and I'm more of a DA-er.

They've been alright, at least by a (4-year) newbie's standards. We seemed to drag a bit when Lucky left, but we're starting to pick up again, I think. Still not the busiest site on the planet, but there's life in it yet.

And as for the art not always being tops... well, everybody's gotta start learning somewhere, yeah? Smile

It's good to know that that the big corporate sites haven't completely killed smaller communities like this.

Honestly I wish the internet in general hadn't taken into the direction that it did, but I guess it can't be helped.

I agree. it's good that small sites like this still exist. I hope we will go on still existing.

I heard about that. It seemed a nice place they had, was thinking of signing up at the time. Though I am already spread pretty thin over the sites I'm already on.... (let's see: dA, here, FA, Nano, Bulbagarden, FT, YT, a little Facebook lurking here and there ... how many is that by now, 7?)
