    I couldn't agree more. I usually don't do forums,but after lurking around the here a few months, I saw no drama and decided to join for that reason.

    I've been here since the forum's inception (though I'm not always particularly active) and I've only seen a handful of arguments break out, and none of them even got heated. Mind you, I stay away from the GamerGate thread now, but it also took 3 or 4 months after that whole Thing started for it to even show up here. This place is a nice little bubble of sanity amidst the bedlam that is the internet.

    Now that I think about it, I totally agree. I don't think I've seen anything outrageous, or at least to the point where people would intentionally offend/spite/etc. someone. I love this community. Might as well rank it #1 in my books.

    We have over a thousand members and have had to talk to less than a dozen about improper behavior (and ban less than five real people) in the 20 months the forum has been active. It's safe to say this is one of the friendliest places to talk Vita there is, and it's not because of us - it's because of you guys being so nice. :)

    So tempted to just respond by insulting you but I don't know the place well enough to know if that humour would be appreciated :)

    After recently being banned on Gaf from just sharing my thoughts, its refreshing to visit a forum that is so welcoming to new people.

    Just signed up for this after my ban on Gaf and was greeted so kindly by you guys :D! I can't wait to be a more active part of the community here and that is due to how friendly and open it is :).

    I'm glad that may of you are enjoying the forum! I've been part of many forums over the years and one thing that I have learned is that community spirit and the feeling of being united is crucial to any successful and positive environment.

    The Vita Lounge is called The Vita Lounge because I wanted to invoke a relaxed and calming atmosphere; let's be honest - you don't have to go far on the internet for Vita negativity - but I didn't want that for here. That's not to say we are being naïve of the ultimate situation, but to enjoy it for what it is.

    The credit for how it has turned out is entirely down to those of you that also share that mind set and helped bring this to life. We are also finding more members every day, and although I'm not ultimately driven by numbers - we welcome anyone that wants to talk about the positive aspects of the Vita, or discuss other aspects constructively.

    Hopefully I will start up competitions again as well. :)

    IMO, it's only nice due to the fact that it's not overly busy or popular. I mean, the biggest and busiest PC/video gaming website/forum is NeoGAF and it's not the most friendliest place on the net :(

    I think being a Vita owner means you're more likely to be of a mature age because most of the people here owned a PSP I assume. You have to have some years under your belt to be a handheld fan. It's a niche market that doesn't attract hordes of 14 year old dudebros.

    Yeah, I agree. Life isn't fun if you spend your time worried all the time. Video games release stress and stress follows everybody through every stage of life.

    I've always been a shy person and prefer to spend time alone. Sony has made that less lonely all these years. So many great memories. So many more great memories to make, too.
