    I've been a member of this forum for many years, and I have seen the good the bad and yes even the ugly. However that has not changed the fact that I love this forum. So I'm wondering what dose this site mean to you? What is it that keeps you comming back?

    The community. The people. MC was the first truly friendly forum I had ever been a part of, and as such, it helped coax me out of my shell, because there were so many wonderful, kind, and friendly people here who thrived on making this place fan and enjoyable for everybody. Prior to MC, I had really only belonged to maybe three forums, two of which were really small and dedicated to just one show each, so there really wasn't much a community at either place; the other was the ToonZone forum, and the people there seem to strive to make other people feel like crap as much as possible, and I was always treated like a village idiot over there.

    MC, however, has been a wonderful community to be a part of. As I've said many times before, even though I first joined in 2003, it really wasn't until 2005 that this place really began to thrive, and that's mostly attributed to That Announcer (wherever he is): he really got the joint jumpin', and as such, more and more of us were coming out of the woodwork and actually participating among the forum outside of just standard discussions of movies, shows, other Henson works, etc. We actually started interacting with each other and developing friendships and connections among the community.

    As many have said before, MC is more than just a message forum, and it's more than just an online community, we really are like one, big, dysfunctional cyber family. That's something that I really appreciate about MC and that's really what keeps me coming back: in all honesty, I feel a lot closer to most of the people here than I do to most of the people I know in real life; you guys have been a great source of support for anything I've gone through over the years, and as somebody once pointed out years ago (I forget who), you guys have literally seen me grow up here - I was just fourteen when I joined, and I'm twenty-seven now . . . that's a long time to dedicate to a place like this.

    There are a few forums out there that I'm much more fond of, but Muppet Central is one of the few where you can look at old posts and go, "Wow, I wonder what it was like to be a member back then?"

    I love the way the forum looks as well, and I love reading through the new posts too. It's a great, friendly place that I'm glad to be a part of - even if I joined only less than a year ago! :)

    Although I've only been here for 3 months, this is already my most visited website. I have never seen a forum where the people in it were this dedicated to their interests. This is absolutely one of the best forums on the internet in my opinion, in which I'm sure you can agree on.

    I just really enjoy reading everyone's opinions and I enjoy the amount of different threads we have, not just on Muppet / Henson / Sesame Street. So many nice threads to read though. I have also felt like I made a few very good friends here over the years. :)

    I love MC because it’s an environment where I can really express meself about things that have upset me or just made me feel slightly uneasy about something. I’ve been a member here for years, & I really regret not submitting more posts, but high school & college got in the way. But now I’ve returned for good! Thank you Muppet Central for always bein there!

    Met some wonderful people and made/reconnected with new and old friends, met some nasty faces here but I choose not to let them ruin my experience here, but overall, it's a great place to talk about Muppet stuff and goof around on other non-muppet related stuff.

    Of the more or less five forums I frequent, Muppet Central is probably the best; the likes/alerts feature is really underrated and sorely missed on forums that don't have it (helps things feel integrated). There's just enough people here.

    It's a place where you can talk about Muppets, have fun talking about other things besides The Muppets, it’s just a great site that I'm glad to be a part of.

    Actually, my favorite forum doesn't exist - I've got a three-way tie currently for that title. But all three are in different fandoms, and it's proof that good people exist no matter what they're interested in.

    It's a great place to meet people who share the same interest you do and share your stories with other fellow Muppet fans.
