From the ashes of 1UP rises.... me?

Just a quick blog to say hi Giantbomb!

Like many new users to this site, I have arrived here amidst the decline of 1UP. A great gaming community now vanished! I've also set myself up on Pixlbit, so by all means check that out as well! http://www.pixlbit.com/user?action=showUserProfile&userId=394

Funnily enough I wasn't actually that active a member on 1UP but I was constantly reading other peoples blogs and I hope to read the same great content here, as I was able to on a regular basis there. I was literally on the verge of writing a couple of meaty blogs as well; one on JRPG's and the other on the next generation of gaming. I guess I'll be posting those on here rather than 1UP now then!

Here's to a new start!

Regards

Matt

Welcome to the site! I heartily recommend reading our FAQ and our Forum Rules, or if you have any questions, feel free to contact one of us mods. Uh, let's see, what else? Avoid the 'Noid. Keep your hands and feet inside the cart at all times. If you see a talking hamburger around the site, be careful, as we haven't been able to properly test him for rabies. And that should just about do it.

This man sums it up nice and well, but I want to add that you should visit the Staff Photo Edit thread if you want to see the true community at work, and also if you don't value your sanity. That thread works better if you've seen more videos of the staff, but it's still crazy.

In short, welcome!

Welcome duder, and if you ever start reading that fan fiction about Jeff and Ryan abort immediately. For there is nothing but evil to be found there. That's the only thing I wish someone told me when I first looked at the forums.

Welcome. Somebody will probably call you a stupid fuck at some point of your stay. Feel free to tell them to not be a dick.

Is an hamburger a sandwich? Should legos talk? These are just a couple of examples of the kind of questions we dwell on, here on Giant Bomb.

A lot of 1up guys are coming I see

@blu3v3nom07: This is brilliant. I'm going to like it here

Posted by Townz90

@alekss: Yeah, It's hard to describe how great of a community there was there. It will be sorely missed.

Welcome to this little video game site. There might be some assholes here and there, but for the most part it's a nice place.

Welcome to the Giant Bomb! Too bad about the timing though with Brad leaving and all...

Edited by Alekss

@townz90: Just remember, there's plenty of assholes around here. Also don't get in a heated argument with them because the mods are vicious and may ban you both. I'm not kidding, people with thousands of posts and years of service have been banned.

@alekss: Thanks for the heads up. I'm a pretty chill guy so I doubt I'll be getting into any arguments! Haters gonna hate.

Uhm... and there I was thinking this was actually one of the nicer internet communities. I'm here for a year now and can't say I ran into a real asshole. Guess I was circumnavigating the drama threads...

Oh, and welcome here Townz90!

Well there's plenty of assholes but very few dicks. You're good.
