Everyone is extremely grateful for this 'resurrection' as it were.

Youโ€™re all very kind. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Iโ€™ll see what I can do to get a donate button added soon! Iโ€™ve been more pre occupied with more important features and making the site a more pleasant experience (like fixing that silly link preview) but a donate button should be pretty quick and easy. Iโ€™ll toss it up tonight after work!

Thank you everyone. ๐Ÿ™

Not sure if anyone is interested but the original Help started in 1999.

I joined around 06/07, I believe. Hard to remember. Help got me through so many things, and honestly- the biggest help was the community here just being friendly and accepting, more than just answering my posts when I needed help. The friends and memories I made here will stick with me forever. :)

Although I've never met anybody from Help in real life (Except 1, but I knew her in person before she joined so it doesn't count) I still consider them true friends of mine who I owe my life to. Those are the ones that got me motivated to take this project on.

I plan to keep this up as long as possible, but it's a community driven site. The old Help was around for nearly 10 years before many of us found it (Except Ralph. He's been around since forever, apparently)- which just goes to show that it may take some time before there is a constant stream of users that are finding us and posting.

To keep the site alive, the best thing we can all do is stick around as long as we can and help each and every person that comes to our doorstep. If we can maintain that great community, Help will survive.

What do you honestly think would happen if the help community actually met in person?

Weโ€™d all sit quietly. And awkwardly try to socialize with each other.
Iโ€™m pretty sure at least 85% of us is socially inept to some degree. ๐Ÿ˜„

To be fair, finding a 2 legged dog should be relatively easy.

I am upset, i grew up with alot of you, and no one is left...

I feel the same way. I miss a lot of the original helpers. I wish there was a way we could get people here the way they used to be.

Other than that- is everything okay?

The Physics of Death (and What Happens to Your Energy When You Die).

Was just thinking we hadn't seen you in a while. ๐Ÿ˜„

Very nice post! Honestly I opened it expecting a bit more specifics of where the energy goes, but I think this message would be good to hear at a person's funeral. (Probably one who's more science-inclined)

Hope all is well.

If youโ€™re talking with someone and you start feeling like something is there between you all, is it one sided or are you feeling something from that person as well?

Eye contact is generally a very good sign!
Also- most people are empathetic to a degree so you can usually โ€œsenseโ€ if they are one way or another. To a degree, obviously.

Based on the information provided, Iโ€™d say you have a good chance of him liking the run in as well. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Access isn't restricted. It's basically just an on/off button for the whole thing. ๐Ÿ˜…
