this place barely even has a pulse. TGM is dead. this is supposed to be the hub for the western world and according to the forum stats only has 100 active members. that would be cool if this was like a regional forum for like norcal but people are crazy if they think that's even significant. it's even funny to me to suggest otherwise because as far as i can tell most of the veterans do their damnest to keep this place as insular as possible. forum activity is low, the IRC channel link isn't even to the real one and was described to me by other people as a filter for the idiots and noobs and there is no effort to make this site known.
