Default Wotmania closes, Readandfindout.com opens

Well, the day has finally come - Wotmania is closing its doors after August 31st, and Readandfindout.com has just opened its doors for business. Here's hoping that RAFO moves on to bigger and better things than even Wotmania was able to dream of.

It's a good group of people - the only community I've been a part of as long as I've been here. If you come check us out, you'll see me posting over there as Craig.

From what I understand, most of the book scholars from Wotmania won't be posting at the new site.

Edit: Dom is lurking here now, but he's not viewing this thread - he's viewing threads on General.

The webmaster of Wotmania lost interest in WoT years ago, and finally decided to close down the site. The site Bela linked is one that some of the members have started. Some other members decided to start this blog instead, and hopefully they will be congregating here when the new book comes out.

Oh, I see, so you didn't disappear on me for another online AS. I don't know which hurts more, being abandoned for someone, or being abandoned for no one....

No one compares to you, my Dear.

You shone too bright and I was not tough enough to meet the challenge.

So I retired temporarily from TL and learned some life lessons. Had many an epiphany. Wailed and cursed at the night, strode and endeavoured during the day. Have become fitter, happier, more productive. Have achieved Stage 5 at the Internets.

I'm a man now.

This is true. Personally more of my interest is currently in the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Board, as I currently read other things far more than I do WoT. Hence my continued interest in the new site.

Though I must say I'm also heavily drawn to the TV & Movies Board. I am rather fond of movies.

The format of the board is hideous. Takes forever just to read one thread. Is there a tree or hybrid layout that I can switch to?

Looks like I may need to write a script of some kind to reformat that to something more readable. If it's even possible. Yeesh.

Oh, you kids with your linear-thread hangups.

I've never understood people who hate that kind of board layout. But, hey, to each their own.

It means that Wotmania's format was hideous, and that it took forever just to read one thread.

Okay, now I've looked at it. It's EXACTLY like Wotmania. UGH.

I can't think of any advantage to that format at all.
