Hey there everyone!
I want to take this chance to comment on a couple of recent changes with Paranatural and this forum. As you may know, Zack Morrison recently decided to remove the commenting feature from his comic pages, due to exploits in the commenting software and not having time to moderate discussions that might get out of hand. While this is sad news for people that enjoyed commenting on the comic pages themselves, it's also an opportunity for this forum to come alive once again. Zack linked to us in his comic's newspost on Tuesday, and we've already gained well over a dozen new members since then! Welcome! We're happy you're here.
Along those lines, if we are to be a suitable replacement for Paranatural's comment threads, we also have to be able to succeed at the other thing Zack was concerned about, and that's discussions that might become too heated. Luckily, I don't think that's ever been a problem for this forum, and I don't expect it to become one, since everyone here treats each other with respect. Just in case, though, our reigning administrator acid
has promoted two new administrators: Soroya123
(myself). We really just want to make sure everything stays respectful and fun. Feel free to message us with any questions or comments you might have!
So just as a small introduction: Hi, I'm Westbrook! I've been a member of this forum for several months now, but I've also administrated a forum with hundreds of active users, so I feel I have a lot of experience in this area. I really enjoy reading Paranatural (just like everyone here, haha) and I hope that all the people who enjoyed commenting on the comic itself will be able to do the same here!
Thanks, and welcome!

Nothing much to add to Westbrook's announcement, just an intro for myself! I'm Soroya123 and I've been a member of this forum for several years. I was here when this forum was created, and have been relatively active in the years following its creation. I'm not too familiar with Moding on a forum but after having seen how our previous mods have run this forum, I have a pretty good idea on what flies and doesn't here. Paranatural has been by far one of my favorite webcomics of all time. I look forward to swapping theories, rping, and so much more on the forum!
