After we all left, it struggled for a while ,  but the rent and utilities didn't get paid, and it closed up.

How do the rent and utilities get paid here?

smoke it up, never come online only to show him face once in a while.

@Catch decide to start this place and he bring over all the Mods, and most members.

The Fringe hang on for about a year more then the Owner just give up and close it down.
The remaining member who cross posting between both place either stay here, or not post anywhere.

That the quick answer. Chuckle
But where did you all start at that you knew each other?
Thanks lil bit Chuckle Drinks
The fringe. Thats where I eventually made an account, met some of these folks.

GeeElpee was a little shady for my liking.

Well I can understand that.

I just received a very weird email from someone that posted on ION and it just piqued my interest.


Should I have not made this thread?

Oh no....

I think the original group formed from LOP.  Then there was another glop massacre and a bunch found their way to the fringe.  Then we picked up some more castaways when ION and COP closed.

That's kinda what I wanted to know.
Thanks, Talon.

So how are things paid here?
Are there donation runs? I don't mind donating to forums I use and enjoy.

Yeah, see. *shrug* 
Being an outsider is intrinsic to me.. it leaves me out of the loop on alot of the "things" and "stuff". But I avoid alot of the other drama  Chuckle
I just post stuff and read stuff and try to avoid doing both when mad/drunk. Lmao

I looking for information one day and it lead me to The Fringe.
They all min the middle of the Transition to this place, so I hang
about watching it all. Then I join up here when it very clear what happening.

Most of the people here now all been together for over a decade.
Everyone seem to have travel together from all the different splinter
site that come after GLP. LOP, ION, TOP, COP, The Fringe, etc-etc.

Only a few new people like me here with all of you now. But Most of this group stay together fo long time now.

I come from the big phone forums. I find these people almost by accident. I like it, so I stay around.
Not everyone like me though Chuckle That ok, big family do that.

My route here was GLP, AE, LOP, AE, the Fringe  and BTF

Others stopped off at ION and COP

@Catch is our benefactor. He pays the rent and utilities.  He also will accept donations but he has never asked for any.
I have never heard anything about the owner of the Fringe being a druggie or misusing donations.  My understanding was that he had a new wife and child and was neglecting the forum. .

The GLP peeps call it the 'Pickle Purge':
That occurred around the same time COP went down.
I jumped that sinking ship a little before that with a couple of others.
@Aquarius on ION told the members there about The Fringe and we joined up.
When that went downhill this place was created by most of the MODS there and most of us followed.
So we're really four groups that came together here: The original TF, GLP, COP and ION all in one place!
