It's been a LONG two weeks without this place. I've missed it very much, so glad it's back. This place feels like a second home to me.

Loving the 100x100 avatars.

My obsessive-compulsive-change-hating side is happy to see that the forum doesn't look too different--but that said, the new logo up top looks great! This has been a really exciting time to be a member of this community, and I'm sure that excitement is going to stick around right up until the Wiki joins the party. Honestly, I can't wait for that, but I'm sure there's a lot of work involved (in addition to everything else that's still going on), so I'm not going to bug anyone about when it will be ready or anything like that. Just remember, Mike and co., that you do have a community full of eager, shonen spirited people who I'm sure would be happy to help out however they can, so feel free to ask if you ever need another set of eyes for anything.

Some of the new 100x100 sized avatars look sweet, but I don't think I can be bothered to scale mine up right now.

Oh, and hi everyone. Good to see you all again.

Yeah, this merger has me more excited for this community than I have been in ages.

Truth be told, while I'm still as much a Dragon Ball nut as I always have been, in recent years I'd gotten to the point where it felt like I had run out of things to talk about here - anything I wanted to say was already said, either by me or someone else. I'd still stop by and read posts and respond on occasion if I felt I had something to say, but more often then not I was really turning into a ghost. However, having a whole new resource to explore, a wiki project coming into fruition, and just the whole fresh newness of it all has got me re energized a bit.

I know what you mean. I think having a break from the forum did me some good in and of itself, but the excitement of the merger halfway through the downtime has really helped to recharge my shonen-spirit-batteries. I feel like my patience and good intentions are at an all time high right now!

It’s OK. Emolga is only 1'04" anyway.

You too! Haven’t lived up to my “Advanced Regular” title in a while…

I have the same sentiments. With a series that has long concluded and a forum as active as this, you start to see the same topics over and over again. And over time, a lot of great conversation gets buried which just adds to that. I know I would often even bookmark threads that contained useful information to return to later… but even then I’d have to go looking throughout the pages to find the relevant tidbits. Basically the forum structure is good for discourse but bad for organization. So I think a wiki is the perfect (kanzen, if you will) addition and will definitely make this place a regular visit for me in the near future.

Yeah, a lot of the same topics do frequently come up. I've gotten to to use my timelines image in more than one thread dedicated to them. ;)

In my case, I've been hanging around this community since Chris Psaros's DBZ Uncensored linked to Vegetto EX's ultimate links page and I sort of never went away, though I often had vanishing spells. I've been on four forums dedicated to this place now (three if you count this the same as the last one), so I don't know, maybe I just feel old. I mean, I was 17 when I first started hanging around these parts, and I still remember having an excited AIM chat with Mike when we started getting the super battle collection toys in US toy releases.

I guess there's just not as much on the "new things to talk about" for me these days - or at least that's how I felt before. Having this place revamped, and a wiki around the corner makes me feel like I may yet have something left to contribute to this community, which is all I've wanted to do for a long time. I used to have my own (admittedly crappy) DBZ site back in the day in hopes of doing something useful. It didn't amount to much beyond a summation of the storylines with a few images sprinkled in it, but maybe with an official wiki I can help with that.

That reminds me, I still have a BUNCH of DVD screenshots taken from the old FUNi DVD singles from all over the show - since the wiki is around the corner, I'd be happy to upload them for use there if people want.

I have been listening to the podcast and lurking a bit around here for years. Now that Kanzenshuu is reality I thought it would be a good time to actually join this forum!

Congrats on successfully porting everything over!

I'm really digging the minimalist changes here and there.

The new website is awesome! The forum is finaly back! And a wiki is coming!!! :o
I love you guys! Thanks for everything! :D
James Teal (Animerica 1996) wrote:When you think about it, there are a number of similarities between the Chinese-inspired Son Goku and that most American of superhero icons, Superman. Both are aliens sent to Earth shortly after birth to escape the destruction of their homeworlds; both possess super-strength, flight, super-speed, heightened senses and the ability to cast energy blasts. But the crucial difference between them lies not only in how they view the world, but in how the world views them.

Superman is, and always has been, a symbol for truth, justice, and upstanding moral fortitude–a role model and leader as much as a fighter. The more down-to-earth Goku has no illusions about being responsible for maintaining social order, or for setting some kind of moral example for the entire world. Goku is simply a martial artist who’s devoted his life toward perfecting his fighting skills and other abilities. Though never shy about risking his life to save either one person or the entire world, he just doesn’t believe that the balance of the world rests in any way on his shoulders, and he has no need to shape any part of it in his image. Goku is an idealist, and believes that there is some good in everyone, but he is unconcerned with the big picture of the world…unless it has to do with some kind of fight. Politics, society, law and order don’t have much bearing on his life, but he’s a man who knows right from wrong.

Whoo-hoo! Awesome to be back. Loving the slightly sleeker look of the forums, but, like bussani, glad it wasn't totally overhauled.

So where was the "Ask" section archived to? Is it possible to access it at all?

Nah, that stuff is hidden away. It's there, but it's just that you can't access it. Much of that content is simply going to be integrated into additional guides and such (if it hasn't been already), so it's not like the information is lost. It was really just old, irrelevant nonsense that was cluttering things up.

Hey hai you guise! <3 God I these two weeks felt like rehab or something. I needed my fix @_@
*Hugs everyone*

Anyway, enough non-sense. The forum looks pretty much the same but that isn't a bad thing. It feels more "clean" somehow. The website is absolutely fantastic and I'm loving everything. Can't wait for new content. As I asked on Facebook, will you remake/rename a Youtube account for the new website? Is it worth it? Will you try and contact... Suckerberg or whatever for a Facebook name change? I don't believe it will be impossible. What about Google+?

I really like that there is now a RSS feed like Kanzentai had. I'm really enjoying everything a lot. It's good to start anew with a fresh face. I understand the nostalgia factor but change is always good! Keep up the good work and good luck for everything!

The new site looks super dang sexy, I love it! :P

Also, I'm really surprised that you guys are FINALLY starting to work on that Wiki project, I mean, I know you guys have always toyed around with the idea but I've never thought you would actually do it. Glad to see it's actually happening! :mrgreen:
