How Did You Find the Forum?
« on: August 13, 2020, 07:00:37 AM »

Title is pretty self-explanatory. Most of us have been here anywhere from 5-10 years, in some cases, almost 11. Obviously a lot changes in a decade (or half a decade), but yet we all still have accounts here and see this as internet home. So the question is:

How did you find the forum in the first place?

From Scott's blog, which I checked faithfully every day before the forum came into existence :P

I honestly think I stumbled upon it after randomly doing internet searches for info on him and his books. I'm not 100% sure bc it was so long ago

I found a little advertisement for the forum in the back of Leviathan (which I'm pretty sure is how a bunch of people found this place in its heyday). Though I'd already read the Uglies series, which is still by far my favourite :p

Randomly picked up Leviathan one day at the bookstore and loved it. Decided to check out Scott's website/blog and found the forum. Lurked for a little while then decided to make an account and Last Post has been mine ever since.

I found it after reading the Uglies series... I had read all four of the books and then got Bogus To Bubbly and saw somewhere on there (maybe it was on the back cover, maybe inside the book, I can't remember) that there was a website and so I went on the website and was going through it, only to see the link to a "forum" and me being sheltered and not really using the internet at that time didn't know what a forum was so I clicked on it. I saw that there were people who were active and I was nervous bc I was like oh this is one of those dangerous chat rooms that people talk about but then I was like... but it's not? It's talking about books and things and it's not a chat room, it's a forum (had to Google what a forum actually was) so then when I was at my dad's place, I joined (my laptop at home was waaaaay too slow to run it... it froze for like 5 minutes any time you went to a new page on the internet. I for sure talked about that issue on here because I had that laptop for a year still of being on the forum) and then from that point onwards I accessed the forum from my iPod, and then much later in 2010, my first smartphone (heyo iPhone 4).

I read Leviathan, was obsessed, so I looked up Scott and eventually started reading the forum. Some of y'all seemed cool (I jk! You all did <3) and RP and the Bloodbath thread seemed fun so I crashed Songbirds and here I am!
