Greetings TTG Community,

I've considered dropping in and taking a look around every once in a while for some years now. I don't expect I will be around an awful lot but it will be nice to log in occasionally, maybe reconnect with some old friends. I must admit, it's been that so long I can hardly remember what we once talked of. I've taken to gaming a little for the first time in around six years, so I feel I may have a little to offer the community. I do enjoy writing, so perhaps I might add the odd game review or tutorial from time to time.

To those of you are around and active here today, this is a special place. You have found a community in a world of extreme individuality and oftentimes (especially after the last years) isolation. It may be through digital means, but that doesn't change anything. I believe this is something that we all unwittingly seek, and TTG provides a space for us to find it.

This was my first taste of involvement with a community, and it wasn't until years later that I realised how these forums had enriched my life and taught me some valuable life lessons. Leaving here coincided with a turbulent time in my life and the wounds that my self-enforced extrication from the community were felt all the more. In retrospect, it may have been a blessing in disguise. I suppose I will never know. But my departure certainly removed a degree of insulation and gave me an extra need to seek out new experiences in the real world.

A year or so later the innate search for active participation in a community led me to the arms of some local communities, both of which provided a similar nurturing. Today, I live within a somewhat self-sufficient community of around 350 people alongside participating in some global communities. Soon I will leave my current home, to see what else I can find in the world. The only thing I do know is that wherever I choose to settle next, community will be the number one necessity. I even have some ideas of creating some space for others of a certain grain myself. TTG was the first pull of community I ever felt and I let it pull me all the way in. I'll be forever grateful for you all for that.

I want to give big shout out to Sean and the team for what you have created and provided for nearly three million people over the past decade and more. It's a hell of an achievement. I also want to give a shout out to G_Man for the beautiful message you sent me around the time of my departure, I just read it last week and that kind of support is at the heart of all community. I hope TTG continues to work it's magic for many, many years to come.

If you've made it this far, thanks for listening.
Peace out,

Frog
