Hi. Yet another Kboards refugee here, under a different user name. Good to see so many familiar faces.
Thank you, Tim, for providing a new home for us.

I rarely posted at Kboards, and now I'm here, where I will try to be better about that!  Grin

I'm here under my real name and photo, as I was at KB.

I joined Kboards in 2010 and found great advice there over the years. I posted a lot in the early years, then I became mostly a lurker with the occasional post.

I imagine there are a lot of people like me who visit the forum often to get advice--or just to feel the sense of community with other writers who grapple with the same challenges, even if we don't often feel able to add useful comments.

So thank you to all the writers who do post regularly and share their wisdom. And thank you, too, to Tim for setting up this new space.

Hi! I posted only a little on Kboards and mostly stuck to lurking toward "the end."

Here. Same name, new avatar. I posted less and less at the WC but I did lurk pretty regularly to keep tabs on all the developments. Hoping to be more active here as I get back into a writing and releasing groove and have something to contribute. Thanks, Timothy. Losing this community would have been epically worse than watching a familiar forum implode.

Another one who made it across. I was an active lurker onKBoards, but I'll try and be a bit more participative here.

And the smilies rock. Any forum that features a llama-riding banana gets my vote :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em

Hello, everyone! I used to use my real name/author name over at the other place, but trying something different this time around. It's not that I'm trying to be anonymous or anything, but I just didn't like how if you'd Google my name, my forum posts would be one of the first things that came up! Yikes, no thanks!

So, probably nobody remembered me much anyway. I posted quite often back in the day, around 2012-2014 or so, and then went into lurker mode during the creation and aftermath of my second novel. I think I mostly used my real photo for an avatar over there, but this is the avatar I use on Twitter and several other places. It is, in fact, a paper craft self portrait!  grint

Hiyas :)  Glad to be here; I was a frequent poster at KB eons ago, long before there was a Writer's Cafe or anything like it...somewhere along the way (probably when I got a new computer and lost my bookmarks) I kinda forgot to go back, until a couple years had passed. I missed it, but dang, it got so *big* that even after I found my way back, I rarely popped in.
I was Thumper there; decided here to stick to something closer to my own name. And I am really looking forward to diving in here!

New username: I'd regretted not using my real name over on KBoards, so this gave me an opportunity to change it.

Big Woohoo to see the "All" option for viewing all pages. On Kboards, that only worked when there were fewer than four pages.

Screenshots work better here as well (as an example, check out the juxtaposition of these threads):

According to the FBBI (Federal Bureau of Bunchie Investigation), they're not llamas. But try telling that to the CILA (Centrally Intelligent Llama Agency).

Found this thread through a suggestion for having an introductions section... Hasn't been posted in for a while but I'm guessing this is the right spot?

If not, please show me the right door.  :hehe

I'm new to Writer Sanctum. I found this place through a comment on KBoards and I see a lot of familiar faces here. I wasn't on the other site during whatever it was that prompted the creation of this one, however I do like that there are so many sections here dedicated to writing that are also genre-specific. It'll be nice to get involved in more writing-related discussions since I'm both a writer and an editor.

My "private" writing has always been sci-fi while all of my public writing has always been fantasy. I'd like to blur that a little, and maybe talking about the genres will help with that. :)

Ah, yes, right, I'm a Canadian, living on the west coast, yada yada, like long walks on the beach. I'm a very interesting person. Maybe.
