Don't see a lot of new posts up in here anymore, but that's ok. I bought this domain the summer of 2003, and set up the board that fall for personal screen manipulations and commissioned artwork that I never paid taxes on. Shhh. It wasn't that much, so it doesn't count. It officially opened January 2004 as Everquest's Solusek Ro's Hate board. Then after a month, and my bandwidth buckled, it became an art board.
It's evolved over time, and I've enjoyed the changes, the people coming through, the art that was created, as well as the literature part of it. The Mafia games, www.sanguineaffliction.com was created from members of this board - and is still going strong, if only with staff - and eventually everyone kind of wandered away. Sometimes familiar, old faces come back, say hi, then disappear again. I'm sure people are surprised that TAC is even still here, since a lot of us came from other boards that have since died.
We're coming up on 10 years next month and it feels kind of strange, exciting, yet sad. I'll never let this domain go, and this message board will, god willing, always be here in some form. So if you came by and saw this post, know I'm happy you wandered back, and still think back to the good times when the board flourished. Oh, one last thing.
Yeah, fuck you, Norrath Studios. I win.
