Who needs Rebelscum when you have JD? Urge a fellow scummer to come over here. After all, 'scum is just a dumb website. You'd think who the hell Phillip is. He's nobody.
Who needs it? I for one do. The people who have populated a 5 page thread about it apparently do.
Look...let's call a spade a spade.
if everyone from RS migrated over here, that would be one thing. But as it stands, this site has like....1/10th (at best) of the active population of Rebelscum. I like the cozy atmosphere here at JD, but it's just not fun to post in a random topic and wait three days for a reply. Call it A.D.D, but I like my forum conversations to move a little faster than that.
The only time I see a topic with 5 pages in a one day period over here is (Drum roll) when it's about RS
As fun as it is to gripe when the admins over there fly off the handle, promote or ban a moderator, or lock a post......it doesn't make me want to give up the daily interaction with my fellow fans to come over here and listen to the crickets chirping.
RS has Wuher's. They have constant news and conversation in every collecting section I care about. They have the Seattle community (whose closest and only rival resides at GH). On top of all that, they have more news than any other site out there with very few exceptions.
If it takes a spam mail or two every once in awhile, or I have to watch while GNT or Lady Jaye locks a thread for post padding (and chuckle at the irony)....I can deal with it.
Everything I just said aside, I like JD. There are a lot of websites I enjoy and this is one of them. It's a fun place, where more than a few people I enjoy talking to hang out. And you know what? Someday, if JD ever gets big and interesting enough to be a "daily hangout", I'll be happy to switch my allegiances and never look back.
Today is unfortunately not that day.
