Hey everyone I'm Fazz. You might recognize me as that guy from CYS. So, what's up?

This site seem kind of confusing so far, what with all the many buttons. :P

I guess I should add, 'salaam' is slang for 'hello' in Urdu. I was scrolling through and saw everyone was saying hello or hi, so I was trying to be different.

Welcome to BHB Fazz :)

Don't worry, all the buttons and options become second nature after a while.

Welcome!

And yes. First 15mins on here I was like "wtf?"  next 15 was "Oh, they are just sub boards in the different sections, that's smart" after that it was "oooo child boards and secret things!"

Thank you! It's a drawing of one of the many portraits of Eminem (the rapper). You see this all goes back to when I used to listen to the Slim Shady LP when I was a lot younger (when I probably shouldn't have been :P), and now I use his face(s) as avatars for a lot of my profiles (for example, CYS). I should also clarify, I found them, didn't draw them.

Plus, that entire picture -- the expression, the tie, -- it's all just pure gold haha.

Welcome! I think you'll find that this forum is much better at being a forum than CYS. I don't think there's anyone active here who isn't also from CYS, though. XD

Was Twine not enough, Morgan? Why must you continue to tear out CYS's heart like this - the community that took you inn when you were cold and hungry, and gave you enough shit to do to occupy an entire shift at work!

Yes, I've noticed that. They're not very active on CYS though. And the forums here are pretty interesting.

Twine is cool yo. I use it to write my games as I prefer their layout over CYS. I just wish there was a spellchecker implemented into the engine, though :P

My two reasons for not being so active on CYs:

1. Seriously limited time online recently so I spend it on here where my active games and RP are happening.
2. Cys has... Devolved somewhat recent and 99% of the stuff in the forums there does not interest me so trawling through it to find the stuff that does is too much work.

You guys bring up valid points. The main problem imo with CYS is the immaturity, as a significant quantity of the userbase are fairly young, and I feel like that's really degraded CYS because it's led to a lot of puerile content being posted as opposed to actual discussion on meaningful things.

However thanks to 3J's complete purge of WC, the fans have flocked to other forums / sites now in droves and I don't seem them everywhere like I used to. I think, in time, they're all eventually going to go away and this site can be finally ridden of its disease which as plauged it for so long. And all thanks to Hero 3J! :D

And yeah trolls are still kind of an issue, but thanks to the mods keeping close vigil on the site, most trolls that emerge post-3J's New Guidelines are simply banned quickly from what I've seen.

come back guys

I still keep an eye over there and post once or twice a week where it catches my interest.

At some point I will a,so have to finish my second game on there, it kinda went on pause after the competition however I would really like to eventually tidy it up and finish the arcs I didn't have time to do. Then maybe after that I could do the originally planned second part of the first game lol

Luckily they both rated as a solid 6 in the games so I am not too ashamed of my Un-edited and unfinished works, even if I cringe everytime I see the spelling and grammar.

I love CYS... as a community. It's got a lot going for it, as a community.

...aaaaand in the interest of not derailing this thread, I'll just stop there. XD

I'll take your comments on all the things you can do when you're not using CYS seriously when you actually finish something, lol.

It's good for making choice-based games.

That's a shame. :/

It's under active development, though, so there's a chance they'll improve mobile support.
