    ...Like a bunch of other people it seems.

    Sadly didn't get the details of any of my friends on there before hand so I'm lacking the late night gothy chats I'd gotten used to.

    I'm listening to Chelsea Wolf and Windhand most at the moment.

    I live in the UK, I'm a stay at home mum and I've started writing horror again after taking a few years break from writing to look after a friend.

    I dye my hair a lot but it's usually black and green.

    Thanks! By the looks of it babies and books! I'm also a library fiend.

    Ah, fellow immigrant.
    Presently jamming High on Fire. So maybe there's a music topic in relation to Doom and Windhand.

    It shocks me how many people here came from VF.
    I love Windhand, but I just found out they're not touring in the UK because of brexit making travel to the UK too complex next year. Always happy to chat!

    Yup, from VF as well over here. Someone sent me a message to migrate over here. Dont know how popular this place is yet (as Ive just joined), but its about to get a whole lot more traffic hah.

    Yes, I still don't understand why Jet just won't completely let go of the site.  However I don't think he has full control of it.  A few years ago he posted about how he sold the rights to the company.  So I still don't understand how he can just shut it down.

    Which company? Havent heard of that one.. i figured if hes still running it, he still owns it?

    I imagine maybe because hes created it, and it has had a really long run he might just not want to let it go to someone that will fuck it up (further).

    These are good questions.  I posted on the forum asking about; hopefully someone has better details.

    This site isn't that active but I'm hoping people will get active and stick with it because this is my only goth space. I live in a world of beige lovelies.

    Same. Even down in popularity VF was still better than nothing. Ive looked into other sites and it seems like this ones the most active besides VF. Might be more so once VF shuts down entirely.

    Damn, I thought VF was trash Lay-out but all these other sites are even worse. As shitty as Facebook is it seems like the best alternative so far

    Hard to say, but if this site starts making the same mistakes that those running VF were making (and ultimately why it become too costly to keep running), then this site won't grow at all.

    Yup, that be it.

    @Ulfrinn The one mistake they made is turning lay out into a myspace looking knock off and wiping peoples journals clean, basically after the 'update' everything went down the hilll

    It seems a little bit more active than when I first joined. migrating VF crowd might liven things up a tad

    It was dedicated to Vampires, real vampires, history , and influence, art, It was a pretty amazing and huge site. The shear volume of information and archives that are gone now is honestly very sad. If you want i got a few old pics of how it use to look i can pm them to you or something if you were curious. Also had allot of info on other occult and strange happenings.
