I wanted to take a moment to pause to commemorate our first anniversary as a forum. But I’m one or two months late, depending on how you count: it was about 14 months ago that we opened this forum; it was about 13 months ago that EP fully closed (the “EPocolypse” as it came to be called) and we were one of the “lifeboats” available to those who still wanted to seek or offer support in discussing their sexless marriage.
I’m so, so grateful that our members have embraced this forum and continue to support it with earnest and heartfelt contributions. After all it is YOU -- the members -- who make this site what it is. Sure, I “keep the lights on”, but a space -- no matter how welcoming -- is just a space unless it is filled with big-hearted people.
Also: a shout out to my moderators -- volunteers with a calm tone and a gentle touch who assist when there are various misunderstandings/miscommunications here. Thank you for your service!
At this time, we have over 60,000 posts in about 3,000 threads. We have about 700 registered users, about half of which have posted at least once, and about 100 of which have 100 posts or more. But the member count and post count do not capture the important thing: I really think we have the feeling of a community. Not only do we have the support side, but also room for socializing and kidding around. Again, that is not something I personally have created: it is something YOU -- the members -- have created here.
I wish you each the best in your current struggles with your sexless situations, and hope that each of you can find a path that leads to comfort and happiness. And that once you find that, that you continue to support others here seeking the same.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
misssunnybunny: Hooray! Glad to hear the pup is home safe and sound!

brian: My dog went to jail once... she got out, ran to a neighbors house, and they called the police. They came and picked her up and took her to the station instead of the pound. The cops found me plastering the neighborhood with Lost Dog signs.

greatcoastal: I've got this windy, wet, rain making, idea that I'll be trying out sometime Sunday night. I'll send it to all my friends North of me when I'm done. It'll be a blast!

misssunnybunny: Anyone else having trouble uploading images? I've tried on Safari, Firefox, Chrome. The image thing keeps telling me that jpg is invalid/not supported file format, and I know I've uploaded plenty as jpg images in the past.

petrushka: no rejection experienced, misssunnybunny - I can only conclude that maybe your jpg is corrupt, or maybe your connection was a bit wonky

tamara68: I had that problem too @missunnybunny, my jpg surely was not currupt but maybe too big. I have just tried with a small image and that worked.

misssunnybunny: I was able to post pictures yesterday. I'm not sure what the problem was, it just started working again. Ah, technology!
