A Thank You to Bart Ell for Ellgab
« on: October 07, 2018, 09:31:00 AM »
After seeing Bellgab resurrection this morning out of nowhere and with some posters wondering what sandbox to now to play in, I wanted my first topic to thank the man who created this site.  I went back to read some of my old posts and realized that I didn’t have as much fun there and my only real interaction with someone was with theOne who was trolling for information on Heather.  This is not a declaration on picking sides or who now has the best forum just a realization that I found that I have had more fun on this forum than the other one.  So this is just a simple thank you for creating this opportunity when a forum like this could have just disappeared forever.  Thank You, Bart Ell.

Thank you from me, too, Bart, for all you’ve created here. While my curiosity will get the best of me and I’ll probably play around lurking and all at the old BellGab, my home is EllGab.

+1 Absolutely correct. It is more than just a forum here. All of the Bart "extras" make it even better. And let's not forget the Bartcasts and the Sunday Night Tunes. Bart scored a game winning touchdown when he picked up the Bellgab fumble...

Your right it’s those personal touches like the BartCast music before the show that make it so enjoyable to be here.  Again I’m not picking sides, I’m just speaking on my experience here and hoping @Bart Ell kicks down some karma for starting this post.

I, too, thank the almighty and all powerful @Bart Ell for the unwavering commitment to all things not BellGab. Bella-Haven might have had bacon, but here we get served our just desserts. Nightly. On fancy china. And cats. Lots of cats.

On a side note, yesterday’s interview on the BartCast rivaled any podcast in recent memory. Rich Giordano wasn’t bad either.

Praise BE!

Your contribution on topics other than the Heather Drama was awesome to hear.  Reminds us all that there are other posts to check out.  Bravo @GravitySucks

Before facebook and twitter, we had BellGab. I just took a looked at my old account on the bellgab --Date Registered: January 15, 2013, 07:42:50 PM.  That was a long time ago. I am a different person now and so is the world.

There are just too many places to post a comment in 2018. I will being staying on EllGab, facebook with short visits to Twitter. I really don't care to read HW (Redacted) postings. Plus, I am needed elsewhere, like cleaning my house.

What is confusing me is that on the upper tab of my screen is a photo of the same male wearing eye glasses. Same photo on EllGab and BellGab and BellGab's twitter account.  What is up with that?

+1 praise to all, it's Sunday.

His name was FortRock, a member who died.
I kept the favicon to pay tribute to his scorpion army.
Now that he has other exposure I have changed the EllGab favicon to me!
