    Brilliant!  Thank you. 
    I’m keen to make friends and join in. I’ll have a scout around now I’m here. 
    I’ve found myself a bit lonely since covid as I lost some key people who really ‘got me’. I know a lot of people but this will be great to connect with others like me. 
    😊

    I understand that struggle @lemonwatermelon95. Due to a change in job, me and my partner had to move 400 miles in-between lockdowns. We didn't really have a chance to rebuild a friends network and it has truthfully been a struggle. I'm forever grateful for the online communities I am in :)

    That must have been awful. @Jimm_Scope.  The world has become a tough place but we have to keep fighting for the good.

    These forums are a touch different to most social media nowadays. Once you get your bearings and used to the difference I find it quite nice. You can just pay attention to the sections you're interested in.

    Places like this used to be the main kind of community before things like facebook, twitter and (showing my age maybe) myspace/bebo. It's quite the niche, you had to have used the internet before it became mainstream. Hopefully we can put up more guides to help people navigate.

    Thank you. I’m already finding some lovely people.  I’m glad I’ve found you all. I must investigate some of the games.
