Thanks a lot for doing this. I think that many of us really liked that forum because it provided us with something Twitter and Facebook didn't (no, I don't agree that one thing replaces the other). However few we were, that place meant something for us, so it's good of you to open up this space so the ones that are interested can go on chatting and discussing about ELO and Jeff Lynne. I hope more guys join.
Now, why doesn't my username start with capital letters?
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.
Oh thank goodness! I never contributed too awful much to the old forum, but I did love to lurk there and see what everyone had to say on the topic of Jeff and ELO. Thanks for making a new one, Horace! I hope it is every bit as successful as its predecessor.
Thanks for the new forum! i really appreciate it, as i'm not on facebook, etc. Was shocked yesterday, that the old one loved board is closed, but happy, that we have a new one now. Great to see so many of you here after just one day, hope more will follow...
Hello, hello... once again. After the relatively abrupt ending of the old forum, it's both shocking and great to see that a new one has been created and populated by familiar members. Thank you to Horace and Queen for this.
... and I'll get around to retrieving that terrifying G'mork avatar in a little while, Herr Helmut. I'd argue that the original one you're using is much more pleasant, though.
A loyal and pesky member of ELO forums since April, 2007.
elophile: Nice chatting with you too! Take care!

elophile: Horacewimp I just assumed you had been front row for Jeff before... I'm so sorry the show got cancelled!!

elophile: Jeff's people should gift you a meet and greet after all this is over!

Horacewimp: Shall I ask them if I can sit at the table Jeff keeps his cup of tea on while he plays on stage ::idea-01::

elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Horacewimp: I’ll check and see if he takes sugar ::smileys-thumbs-951446::

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

BSJ: Circlejerk is waaaaaay out there!

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
