    Your Favourite Sites!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Hulk, Jan 22, 2008.

    Which sites do you visit the most(apart from this, of course)? Is it good? If it is, then post it here 'cause it might just be the one which others might need, but don't know of. Also, state what the site is about.

    somewhere far from WF to explore the world.

    I was a member of a really great forum other than this one. It was a dark gothic style forum full of wonderous dark, morbid and horrifying things. Met some awesome people there (with very frightening minds I must say) and moderated it since it opened almost.

    The forum is gone now due to the members all being busy and away 80% of the time. Though it had the best publisher links you could come across and so many wonderful people and stories from the darker side of life.

    Though I loved my time there this is the only site I frequent nowadays. Otherwise I don't use the net for anything other than MSN to talk to various people around the world.

    I do a lot of research and just general browsing on Wikipedia.org, but I'm sure you have all heard of that one. Also a lot of wikisource stuff

    The other forum I visit is totse.com, it has forums on anything you want, pets, computers, recycling, politics, money, ect. There's even a writing and poetry forum. Registration is closed, but you can browse the whole site without registering. It runs Vbulliten as well, so you will be familliar with it.

    Occasionally I go to gamefaqs.com, which is all about video games, but I don't play games anymore so there isn't much there I can contribute to.

    I also frequent a bunch of computer related sites lately, just doing research. Computer stores charge a lot to do stuff to laptops, It's cheaper if I learn myself.

    Edit: Oh yeah, some of the stuff and several of the people at totse might be offensive and/or distateful too.

    I don't belong to many sites.
    this one and 3 others but they are fast becoming not visited.
    they are all dealing with fibromyalgia and it is not fun to visit them because everyone complains about being sick and sore with this disease.
    So this is definetly #1.
    sad part is the one site is mine. how is that for disloyalty.
    Dom sent me a site for a comic strip "for better or for worse" a Canadian cartoonist and it has been around for years. Truly family oriented and funny as all get out.

    Just two other forums that I visit.

    TauOnline, a Warhammer 40,000 website and forums mostly dedicated to the Tau. I'm a moderator there.

    and the Realm of Dissonance. A project launched by me, and taken way beyond what I expected by everyone who decided to join. We've had some shaky moments, but things seem to be smoothing out nowadays. I'm Co-admin there.

    We're always looking for fresh meat writers who want to flex their science fiction muscles in a brand new setting unlike any other (that we know of).

    Eh, I mostly use youtube alot because I run a fairly successful video channel there. I also used to like to kill time at sites like newgrounds or flashplayer, but haven't done that in a while.

    I find it amazing the things that are on the computer.
    You can talk to anyone anywhere in the world.
    You can see things that you normally wouldn't.
    You can learn so much.
    I guess it is because I didn't take computer class until I was in grade 10.
    They just were not around until then.
    I didn't do well because it was paper cards that you had to black out the spaces
    for your programs. They bounced around and none of my programs worked.
    I like these computers much better.

    Hi, lessa, and i agree with you. I have learnt so much through the computer: mainly due to this site, and i'm really grateful to the person who created the Internet.

    noncon.apegaming.net

    Ok, so I promised I'd spread the word of a new site hoping to take off. It is a place to discuss anything, serious debates or random chats, and share your writing, art and music, anything really. The guys are friendly and if you have a spare little time check it out. :)

    I go to those when the mood suits me. I go to Writers Beat on occasion and I check in on a programming forums every day to see whats going on there. I'd be more active there but I'm not experienced enough of a programmer to be of much help to anyone (yet).

    For those of you itnerested ther is: lordofhatsforsupremeruleroftheworld.net/conquer Support me and you may be spared!

    Strangely enough, I use Yahoo! Answers for some of my article ideas. Questions asked here and there prompt me to ask myself, "yeah, that's right......". For instance....someone asked if they still had their old fondue pot, and that got me thinking if other people kept their old various gadgets and kitchen wares; and me taking inventory of mine from years back. TA! DA! An article was born for me on my blog.

    If you are childish, you should just browse piczo websites. You might even find mine!

    The birthday calculators are always good fun. Just google birthday calculator and hey presto you get loads of facts such as how many poeple died on your birthday!:eek:

    Oh and of course I suppose this site deserves a honourable mention. :)
