I was on AO wayyyy back (with different name), saw it grow and grow, saw it sell and change and disappear...
I was happy to see Reloaded, I definitely like the layout etc., but like every 'community', it is the members that make it like 'home' or not.
So far at least, for me the comparison ends at the name.
On AO; I eventually had at least a half dozen people I could legitimately call "friend", met several of them in person; became best friends with a couple of those, went and saw 1 get married, met and then dated and shoulda/coulda/woulda married another AO'er.
So yeah, for me, this place has a ways to go to catch that site but... in time... maybe?!
