New year, new ToO! ...But not the newToO board style. :p

What have you all been doing in the meantime? Catspaw, how did you fill the void of your daily ToO check-ins?

Frankly, I kinda forgot about this place, well, I didn't forget, I just wasn't really missing it. But then I got really sad I wasn't able to post about the Christmas Listening party I hosted back on December 22 in the chatroom. :boohoo: We still had a great turnout regardless though!

I for one have missed the community/family feeling of the place. For nearly 13 years so many of you have been like an extended family to me and I am glad we can come here again.

Hello, everyone!! Thanks for your patience with the upgrade... it took longer than anticipated, but we're back now!! \:D/ Things are a little different now, eh? Fancy new notifications, better mobile compatibility, user mentions, and we can now install the ToO as a web app? My, aren't we cutting edge! ;)

December was the best month of my year so far. I didn't really get into the Christmas spirit until the week leading up to the big day. The big BIG good news is that one of my foster siblings (who was taken away from our family last December without warning) was FINALLY returned to our mother's care!! I still haven't seen him in-person because of the pandemic preventing non-essential travel... but it's such a relief that he's home! He was being abused and neglected in a group home for the past twelve months with little contact with us. Now we video chat and game online every day. :mrgreen: So thankful!!

Wow, it came back faster than I thought it would. Good to see the place up and running again! \:D/

Great work Eugene (and everyone else)! \:D/

Thanks Bren for notifying me that this was live and warning me that I'd have to reset my password. :P

The void was too big. :( It was impossible to fill. :sniff: But now that I have my good ToO smilies back, life is complete again! \:D/

I already keep more than busy between work, church, friends, and family commitments, so I wasn't sitting around bored. Some of those things were online instead of in person, but still took plenty of time! I did sometimes find myself wanting to post on a certain topic or wanting to check something I knew was on the ToO but couldn't. It's great to have the site back! I'm sure it took a lot of work, so it's great to see other people also returning and happy to see the renewed site. :yes:

Yeah, I think we'll have to create a neutral theme of some sort. :yes:

Just a little advice, you might want to post about where to find the chat. It took me forever to figure out how to get there! :lol: ](*,) #-o

So very happy to have the ToO back, I really missed it!! \:D/ I also surprised myself by staying absolutely calm the first day I saw it was down, usually I fly into a panic when a message board I belong to is down. I sincerely thank everyone for their hard work. =D>

Really glad to have this place back! I don't always come here a lot, but it felt weird to not have the option!

I have covid to thank for missing it. All that extra time is what brought me back in the first place. Glad it's back.

I'm so glad the ToO and my ToO family is back! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ I hope we can get back the same or better usage of this site before it shut down.

Thanks so much for all you did, Eugene!

Okay so I’m not gonna lie. I haven’t been around here in ages. :anxious: but I’ve been checking it faithfully for a while since I joined the discord and I’m so glad it’s back up and running. Good job on the update everyone! \:D/
