Ok...I tend to joke about Chris and Byron's silly post banter...or joke about implying Jamie is a secret covert operative for Ken...but really, I love you guys! In the years I have been on various online forums, none have come close to the nice feeling I get from you all on here. I got to meet some of you at Muppetfest, and was pleasantly surprised how nice in person your IRL personas are. And it is really great seeing what new members can add to this wacky colelctive. That said, I know a lot feel that MC has perhaps lost a bit of its luster. And I too sometimes miss the old MC. However, there were a lot of infighting, some bickering...etc. I kno wIve had my share of various feuds and whatnot. Yes, the days of intereteing *** for tat flame wars have gone...replaced by a tidal wave of Figure related threads. And yes, we dont seem to have the kind of JHC employee/insider posts we had back then. But still, I feel that this is a community, and each and every person on here has something interesting to contribute. I dont know of any other site where so many members have so many neat artistic talents. Whether it be custom figure plush or quilt making, graphic design, site building, puppetry, music, drawing, radio, media, etc...everyone has quite a bit of talent on here. That said, I cant wait to see MC continue to grow, and I sisncerely cant wait to meet all you guys at Muppetfest next year! (as I hope everyone who can, can try and make it) ...ok, this concludes the Muppet mayhem interruption!
