OPENING THE FLOOD GATES! BOOM! After 5 years of being forum-less, Aersia is now finally open to the public! Yes, it's been 5 years since I ran a forum. The previous one (Cosmic Collapse) had some irreversible problem with it overloading the server. I was forced to take it down after a request from my host (but not before I made a backup), and thus began a 5-year dark age. This is a new host with new forum software! Why did it take so long? I was never too sure why I had to have my own forums. (Yes, even though I bought forum software, I still wasn't sure.) I was constantly weighing out the positives and negatives, and was sure, for a time, that having a forum wasn't worth the cost of bandwidth and burden, especially since it would have nothing special to offer. At least the old forum had an arcade and an auto-posting and auto-learning bot, which made things entertaining. I was also actually pretty scared that, because the VIP is so popular, the forums would explode and cause my host to heckle me into shutting it down. But then, I said "Fuck it, I'm doing this shit!" And here we are today, celebrating the grand opening of a site and forum that has virtually no discernible purpose (aside from playlist support). So take a look around and post. If enough people join and post regularly, we might even get to call ourselves a community. If you're wondering about the raffle, I'm sending out the Emails now. See this page to check the status on the prizes. If you won something, post here! Also, special thanks to the 13 who donated a total of $166.64 since the beginning of time. You know who you are.
