    Hey there, please hold on.. Don't run away just yet. Please allow me to apologize for the confusion and explain to you the best I can about why you have an account on this site, perhaps some threads and posts. And how you perhaps received an email or newsletter and hopefully answer all of your questions.

    First of all, welcome! You are on the OMG boards. A community owned by Floris, and run by Mikey, Nix, and probably a few others. We have always run on-line forums and have done so for the last decade or so.

    Too long, summary please! A bunch of sites used to forums, they are now on a new domain, our apologies for the confusion. This thread explains it all in detail, please come chat with us :)

    And that's where your account probably came from. One of the sites that we used to run in the past, or have since then acquired from another site owner who was about to shut down their site.

    We love communities, being part of it, building them, and chatting to our friends and hopefully loads of new friends as well. And that's where you come in. So please, don't click away irritated, instead, give us a chance to welcome you and become part of an awesome place again.

    We've been quite a few sites, have merged a few sites, etc. The first one was my site creations.nl early 2001, followed by vbulletin.nl / vbfans.com, and eventually a network of wetalk domains like wetalk.tv and wetalknation.net. Mikey has run sites like offtopichut.com, remixforumz, thegeekdistrict, parlancia, etc. And we've merged sites like writershangout, thenewtech, the rogue forums, and a star wars community into ours.

    So try to restore your profile, or ask for help on this. And review your threads and some posts. They probably ring a bell.

    Maybe update your password, privacy settings, your email preferences, and complete your profile (avatar, signature, etc). And maybe say hello to us again, or start a new discussion about your favorite topic.

    Again, our apologies for the confusion. Personal matters such as illness in the family and other real life stuff got in the way, and around 2012 and some communities around 2015, were closed until further notice. Surprise, .. further notice ..

    The current and new url for all these sites is just one amazing community the oh my god boards.

    What are your options?

    If this all really really upsets you, you are free to consider asking to null your account. Or to even delete it. We review these requests on a per-user basis. Nulling an account means we will set the email to your username at example.com, but your content remains, your account does not get deleted. To delete an account means that we will delete the user. Your content will show unlinked, with usertitle of 'Guest', your content remains. You can restore a nulled account, you cannot restore a deleted account.

    If you love the idea of a community and being part of it again, please feel free to contact us if you have questions. But, try to login to your account, and like I said, make sure your email is up to date, and walk through your preferences.

    If you want to start fresh, feel free to sign up if you rather have a completely new account.

    If you find multiple accounts, we have the ability to merge them into 1.
