They're here if you want them:
Open, free, no moderation, no rules, all that's asked is for people to act like adults.
They're not mine, Harvey has established and runs them (his welcome message is on there now), he also runs the *excellent* Fruit Forums (fruitforums.com) - which manage more threads and posts with 675 members than VP Forums can manage with 20000 (no really, check the stats).
The basis of Fruit Forums is open, free debate and a love of fruit machine emulation, no bans, no arbitrary punishments, no power-mad mods inflicting their perverse world order upon others.
The hope is to achieve that same thing with VP (most fruit machine emulation fans are VP fans, I've burned over 50 CD sets for Fruit Forums members) - maybe we can all come together as a genuine community, enjoy each other's company, and enjoy the emulation and simulation.
