    "Hello," from TrollsOnly

    Hey guys, just a friendly note from a sister forum that shares the same roots as you.

    It's to my understanding that there was a "dispute" at the SEOChat forums that caused a significant number of people to leave, and they have created their own forum.

    Well, you're not the first to do so. This happened at the Dev Shed site a while back as well, when they cleaned up their Lounge trolling activity, causing several people to leave. Those people created a forum called TrollsOnly -- basically, just a place for people to hang out and chat.

    It started as just a couple of the "ex-Shedders" who had left, but now there are all types of people from across the Dev Shed network. ranging from permenantly banned outcasts to active moderators (we also have DaWei, for those who know who he was).

    As people who have undergone the same plight as some of those at TrollsOnly, I would like to extend the invitation to any and all of you to swing by and visit. There's basically no actual content (something we pride ourselves in), but what we lack in content we make up for in obscene postcounts .

    Basically, it's just an excuse for us to get together and let our minds drift. We have no standards, so feel free to post and say whatever you feel like. We do have some witty banter, though, but staying directly on-topic isn't what we do best.

    We're obviously not proposing that we merge the forums or anything, we're simply exchanging a warm invitation to those who come from the same place some of us do/did and are doing the same thing some of us did.

    I hope to see some of you over there soon


    P.S. I hope this isn't percieved as spam -- it's just an open invitation from a forum that was founded the same way you were. It'd be a crime if we didn't contact you sooner or later.

    Cheers.....

    Thanks for the invite! I'd heard of past Dev Shed fall-outs. I'm glad you came and found us and I'd like to reciprocate the offer to anyone interested in SEO - please, swing by and check things out!

    We have a pretty loose atmosphere here as well but these are some of the best and brightest around and really know their *ahem* stuff.

    I checked out your forum and I must say you all have mastered the art of nonlinear thought. Good job! <= Not Sarcasm.

    We've had threads go off-topic in the thread's very own starting post -- that kind of skill can't be taught


    btw, I noticed you're from Sacramento, I am too Well, technically, I'm from the outskirts, out by Placerville. Always nice to know that I'm not alone out here, heh....

    Yup, I'm in N. Highlands. Grew up in Citrus Heights. Things sure have changed over the last 10 years!

    j/k - thanks for the info.. i knew dev shed had it's problems, but i didn't know of that story... seems like devshed is good at pushing people away to start their own forums

    Well, whenever you have a network as large as they do with as many hundereds of thousands of users as they do, you're bound to tick someone off sooner or later I suppose.... And people are social beings by nature, so the natural inclination of those all leaving at the same time is to go the same place.


    Also, just as an FYI, I don't want to look like I'm ripping DS, as I myself have not left the DS network. I just hang out with the guys who have, since some of 'em are pretty cool . The DS admins haven't done anything to me personally that would make me want to leave. I realize that not everyone shares that experience, and I respect that, as there have definately been some people who have been very wronged. I just wanted to state, for the recored, that I'm one of the active DSer's who hangs out with the bunch


    Happy Thanksgiving to all those out there who celebrate it
