    It truly is amazing.
    I've been wanting to post about this for awhile, and now i finally have a few minutes to do it.

    What is it that makes us feel like a family here? We have never met each other, we have never heard each other's voices and we wouldn't even know if we crashed our cars into each other.

    YET, we write to each other as though we all live on the same street. We look out for each other, make each other laugh, help each other with ANYTHING that we can think of and we even get scolded sometimes.

    Seeing what Verwon, Riona, zmann & NNNNNewman did for Garrett the other day was such a "feel-good" moment.

    This is the only forum i've ever been a part of, so i don't know. Is the family atmosphere that we have here in OT something that is seen on other site forums too? Or is it just us?

    How can this be explained?

    Well at least i'm not passing gas, right?

    I've been a part of a lot of forums and have never seen this type of "family". For some reason there is such a sense of community. I don't know what it is, other than the fact there are some great people that own pre's and a community where people actually care about one another.

    Not everything can be explained. It's something like a phenomenon.

    It's simple. Webos is a major underdog and that always facilitates stronger bonds between supporters because the fight is that much harder.

    We convinced him to trust us with his money, so it could be sent to him by Western Union,, since he had no other way to access it.

    And dbd, I used to admin and mod a site like this and no, it was never as tight knit and caring as the community on this one.

    I have people on this site that are always concerned about my health and when I'm not feeling well, they check on me. Never had that before.

    Isn't this community what the ideal digital world is meant to look like? I mean, I've got over 300 "friends" on FB, people that I have seen, talked to, hung out with, traveled around the world with, cried with, etc, but I would rather "hang out" in the special PM thread or Llama Louge with you guys than chat with most of those folks now.

    IDK how to explain it, cause when I've tried, it doesn't seem to come out right and people look at me like it's weird.

    THEM: "So you talk with people you've never met like you're all best friends?"
    ME: "Yeah - pretty much."

    I just leave them with, until you've seen it and been a part of it, you just won't understand. Maybe one day you'll be a part of an online community like the one I've found.

    It's really dependent on the particulars of the site and the people. I've seen other forums that were just as (if not more) 'tight-knit'. OTOH, there are others that are almost venomous (e.g. if someone posted that they were contemplating suicide, they were more likely to be offered suggestions on methods rather than reasons to live). Like all communities, the dynamics are fluid and more dependent on the 'residents' than anything else.
