Posted at fringe for quite some time. It was always one of my favorite sites because of the fantastically talented community (even though some of them were dicks :p) I was incredibly upset when nelly began changing the already existing community in ways that upset everyone. She effectively killed fringe. I stopped posting around the time she took over.

I visit the domains of sites I used to frequent from time to time out of curiosity. Came here today to discover artistic scene. While I'm sure it won't be the same as fringe, I'm interested in the idea of a new community that will probably contain stone of the same magnificent work I was accustomed to seeing on fringe.

I'm also happy to see a few photographers here as most art forums I've been on (with the exception of exclusive photography forums) haven't had a very active photography community.

Little about myself:

I'm from Illinois but recently moved to California. I am a hobbyist photographer and went to school in Chicago for web development. Currently working on honing both of those skills to try and get more freelance work. My favorite subjects too shoot are abandonments and nature. I enjoy hiking, camping, kayaking, rock climbing, caving, mine exploring, vertical access, quading, and just about any other adventure that comes my way.

Thanks for your introduction. It's always nice to meet new talented people and to find out about their background. As you might have noticed, things are still a bit slow, but then again, it's never easy to take something over, change everything people are used to and hoping that old faces (even if you don't know them) show up. I basically thought "just start something new and give people who knew the old sites a chance to have fun". So I never actually thought that old community members would give it a try and focused on just launching something new to see how it goes. Time will tell.

Again, thanks for your intro and see you around if your time allows it.
