Aww, cripes; here goes...

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Greetings, everyone.

Been lurking off & on for a while, even tried the chat room a couple times, but I discovered I have even less to add to an online conversation than I do to one with people I actually sort of know.

Anyhow, never having been a part of one, I thought I'd try joining the community. And although I can't afford it, I really, really think I need to upgrade to **Premium** soon. Let's just say that I've been... disappointed... with what's available in some of the online writing forums.

So, I hope to offer critiques to some engaging work--that has actually been proofread by its author (!) --and, following that, post some of my own work. I get the impression that rarely will punches be pulled, and that no one is likely to drop a piece due to a few profanities uttered by 12-year-old aliens.

As for the rest of the forum thing, well, I'll give it a shot. But bear with me-- I'm really not good at it. (Plus, I've got this bear with me...)
