i've only been back for about a week so it'd be unwise of me to say things have most definitely changed for the better in a full (and seemingly impossible) 180 turn, but so far i haven't encountered anything that made me think otherwise and honestly that's incredibly encouraging and even heartwarming. it's the little things - and the consistency of those little things. keep it up.
used to spend a bunch of time on the old hl2 back in 2016. way too young at the time, but i feel like i came back at a really good time with a new sense of maturity (compared to where i was). really enjoying hlna. 2020 has been hell but this is among the things that make it pretty ok. here’s to a better year.
TnB's gone from a community that I thought was forever going to be stuck in some incredibly toxic ways and behaviours to doing a literal 180 and fixing just about everything I thought was unfixable. I'm friends with people who I used to think would never change or who I'd had nothing but a poor view of too, which I'm super happy for.
Earlier this year I was ready to leave the community for good because I saw it going nowhere. Now I'm filled with the same enjoyment for everything I had back in 2015, which I never thought would happen.
Major props to the whole staff team for everything they've done. Playing at TnB helped me through the worst of the end of my nan's life and gave me a fun way to distract myself when things got rough.
