    I'm curious, who here is also a member of the Android Central forums? I was banned from A.C. so long ago that I can't even remember what for. The thing is I joined these forums before AC and haven't had any issues with anyone here. I'm thinking that the attitude over at A.C. is much different than here. Mods over there seems to get their feelings hurt pretty easy..

    I probably still have an account over there, but I don't get on much. I can get everything I need here, or on xda. :cool:

    I was a member at Android Central before I came here. I haven't been there in months.

    I also lurk in XDA for more current support for my old phone. I'm still more active here though.

    Our forum, our rules and our culture. Their forum, their rules and their culture. Let's make sure we don't speak ill about someone else's community. As Amoco rightly pointed out, all contribute to Android and many folks visit multiple on a daily basis.:)

    Years, in my case. I just migrated over here, I think because of the variety of subforums, and even more because AF had something that they don't have now – the Thanks button. They were fun to collect, and poof, they're gone.

    Yes, but besides their numbers being off, they're not prominently displayed like they were, like it was some ongoing contest... for what, who knows.

    edit... maybe those numbers aren't off, now I can't remember what they were.

    I just tried to log back into AC and they looked at me like I had a tail – wouldn't let me in. Hell with 'em.

    I came here four/five years ago, my first forum experience. It might strike some odd but I've never felt the need to go to another phone site. To date, I have never logged on or joined another phone forum. I have always felt welcome here and I enjoy the family like atmosphere. Thanks to the friendly members here I have found a home.

    I agree.. also it helps me to see who I can more believe in some advice or comment.
    also I think it give my statements more weight.

    I've never been a member of AC. Before joined AF, I was a member of Nokia Forums, but that's very much dead now. Currently I'm also an active member of Oppo Forums, which I think is actually quite good for a company owned forum, in that they don't seem to mind people slating the company and their products...LOL! ...their house rules are quite liberal. Oppo is the device I've got, and most online discussion for this does take place on OF.

    The loading speed of A.C is very slow and that's the reason why I am here.

    I was a very active member of Nokia users, sadly now almost defunct. I am still in contact with quite a few members from there. I am a member of Android central, but I don't post there. I'm a member of XDA and have posted exactly twice. I go there to lurk and see what new ROMs have been cooked.

    I also a moderator at a general interest/current affairs forum it is very small with about 120 active members.

    I only signed up with AC for a competition of some kind. That said I've not been here for a little while, maybe 6-8 weeks since I last took a look on the forums and don't think I signed in. Coming here now, I thought I'd come to the wrong site :S. Looks good though, just need to get used to it! Need to get back into foruming I think as well.
