Thanks Soul Brother. I worked my ass off on the old forum trying to not only help grow the community, but keep the high level of quality that our forum had become known for. I can attest that it was not easy, but I think this merger in itself is a testament to the effort that both staff and members alike was not all for nothing. Sure, this forum is different, but in the end, it shall all be for the best. We are no longer tethered to just philosophy, and there are more people around here to discuss our other interests outside of philosophy--or ever provide our expertise for other to satiate their curiosity for philosophy.
And to Robert, as one of the staff members that was insistent on fighting change, I can say that worries were mostly unnecessary. Honestly, Able 2 Know is more of what I envisioned that the Philosophy Forum could be, and I am happy I stuck around through the transition. It is not what I expected, but not what I expected in a good way.
