    biggrin Why is this forum so popular?

    I've been getting TONNES of replies really fast! I expected it would be a fairly empty forum (OotS is only a comic after all, no matter how awesome). Is it that all the RPG fans set up here? This site OWNS!!!

    It's the general friendliness and warmth of this forum.

    Although, the mind control ray might also make it difficult for us to leave...

    It's because of you! Ever since you joined, there's tonnes of people here, it's sort of eerie.

    It's popular because it's a forum of a popular webcomic.

    It's a gaming website that's been around for several years - that kind of longevity is rare and leads to an abundance of users - and hosts a very popular webcomic.

    And even then, this forum isn't that fast.

    In a dark desperate internet, cooling winds in the air
    Warm smell of memes, rising up through the air
    Up ahead in the database, I saw a shimmering light
    My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
    I had to read for the night
    There he stood in the gateway;
    I heard the mission bell
    And I was thinking to myself,
    "This could be amazing or this could be 4Chan."
    Then he drew up a comic and he showed me the way
    There were posts down the subforum,
    I thought I heard them say...

    Welcome to the Giant in the Playground
    Such a lovely place
    Such a lovely face
    Plenty of room at the Playground
    Any time of year, you can find it here

    His mind is Dungeon-twisted, he got the artist's bends
    He got a lot of pretty, pretty plots, that he calls friends
    How they appear in the website, sweet digital sweat.
    Some come to remember, some come to forget

    So I called up the moderator,
    "Please bring me my spam"
    He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen ninety-nine."
    And still those posts are calling from far away,
    Wake you up in the middle of the night
    Just to read them say...

    Welcome to the Giant in The Playground
    Such a lovely place
    Such a lovely face
    They livin' it up at the Playground
    What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

    Memes on the ceiling,
    The pink roleplay on ice
    And he said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own mobile device"
    And in the Giant's website,
    They gathered for the feast
    The stab it with their steely words,
    But they just can't kill the beast

    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the escape
    I had to find the link back
    To the page I was before
    "Relax," said the Admin,
    "We are programmed to receive.
    You can logout any time you like,
    But you can never leave!"
