Hello and welcome to the Internet Animation Database Forums.
These forums are brand new. I was considering doing this in the future sometime, but haste was precipitated by the closing of the Termite Terrace Message Boards and the wish for some there to have somewhere else to congregate.
We know that we can't really take their place. When other message boards have gone the way of the dodo, there has been a general diaspora. Some members congregate in one place; others find other things to do. It's difficult to retain the flavor of an old message board in a new one.
Nor is that really our intent at this point. We'll start simply like this and see where it takes us; what new categories we may want to institute; what direction the board will take, and etc.
But for the time being, welcome and I hope yuou enjoy your time here and learn a little something along the way.
