Hi Lord Parramandas,Lord Parramandas wrote: ↑Sat Jul 15, 2017 7:50 pmHello everyone. I think it's a proper time to introduce myself. I'm Erik, known as Lord Parramandas on this site, and I'm from Slovenia.
As for Watchers on the Wall, I've been following the site since September 2015, participating in almost entire 2015/2016 off-season and writing my reviews for S6 episodes. I'm less active this year due to being busy on another site and also because I want to avoid spoilers and leaks. Watchers on the Wall is the best GoT site for me in general, where many people feel genuine fans. As you may know, I'm very sensitive to negativity when it comes to my favorite TV shows and GoT is no exception. I always prefer positive approach to it and see absolutely zero point in any negativity. After all, I'm here to like the show... to be its fan.
Like last year, I plan to write reviews this year as well. I may even do some video ones which I will post on my newly-made Youtube channel], which currently contains very little GoT related stuff, but this may change when S7 finally airs.

I too appreciate the lack of negativity on WotW
I go to multiple forums that I like. i get different things out of each of them. WotW is a good balance of vibes.
That just made me think of a metaphor for the forums, like it's HS (which I'm not in anymore). Thoughts anyone?:
When I go on the subreddit, it feels like going to a Post-up-in-the-park spot in HS, like with a fire pit (if u had that)...where some ppl are totally wild and partying but there's also ppl chilling and good deep conversations on top of cars.
Then on awoif, it feels like the secret smoke spot outside the computer lab (or your equivalent). Still mostly geeks (I say this with pride), and we're outside so everyone is also having fun there, and our arguments are still geeky but more passionate and trippy theories than in a class or wtvr.
WotW is a nice balance. It feels like going to that one person's house, you know the stop-by-any-time-bro
place. Usually there's someone or something to talk (respond) to, and it's always laid back and always chill and respectful. If you have no plans for the night, you start there (in a forum metaphor, this means you find one thing then another), and then you can link up and go out or stay BK for good conversation. But sometimes you swing by and no one is there yet, so you just hang out by yourself until people show up. (In the metaphor at least you have somewhere to go that's not home, at WotW at least there's something interesting to read in the meantime). It is the GoT forum home base.
I love them all, but when I set my S6 forum accounts I def started here! (I was on with the same name S5 and a diff name in S4, but was too busy S6 for forums).
