    Tynk was a sweetheart.

    Quite a bit needed hashing out. It is humorous to watch FB denizen coping with the Forum shenanigans we have witnessed here years ago.

    Hey guys. Been awhile. Maybe it's time to give this another shot.
    I don't think FB is the entire problem here.
    This used to be a great site, and I have many fond memories of time spent here - and I got alot of good help on tech questions I posted way back in the day.

    I think things around here got a little too "clique-ish" ... and I think that led to the bashing of folks with different opinions. Just my view.

    Also very sad to hear about Tynk. She was so very nice and helped me out alot when I was down for back surgery a few years ago.

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

    this place is tame compared to other online forums I have belonged to,one other very busy forum is so super "clique-ish" and rude to new members that I left that one for just that reason.

    I wouldn't say "lost", maybe a little more like evolved! I think everyone that has had a place at SG during the primetime years has either moved on or hung around for the entertainment value...some like me have lurked in once in a while over the past few years just to keep up with old friends. SG was and still is #1 in IMHO for a variety of useful information, from tweaks, software, hardware to gossip...SG has it all. Over the last 12 years this place has been a rollercoaster of events and personalities, each with their own appropriate place. Hopefully this "place" of social gathering will continue for years to come!

    SG ROCKS!!! and continue posting all of the BUNNIES!!!
