The only thing I worried about was the fact that I posted so much I left people behind that I'd rather had kept talking with in the lounge. I never felt at home in the lounge when I became VA, because I felt so alone - in the lounge that is. Most pals were still flaptains or rears.
That was precisely the reason why we founded EFCL.
Misc is a nice place but the lounges are just more cozy, particularly the Redshirts', Captains' and Flaptains' Lounges.
I made a lot of friends there and quite a lot of them have even become my RL friends. I am not sure we'd have gotten so close if there hadn't been the lounges.
