shapeshifter here, as in the OG (1999-2002) Roswell.

Too bad that the name of Previously.TV had to be sacrificed in whatever behind-the-scenes reorganization. Isn't the concept of watching during "prime time" a little passé?

Anyway, since I've been jilted by forum dumps before (TWoP, IMDb, OG FanForum, etc.) experience gives me reason to hope that this change will have some advantages too. I mean, like, did anyone ever really know the definition of "boards on boards" that could theoretically get a poster banned from TWoP?

And, thank you to Dave et al. for not just abandoning Previously.TV with the TWoP equivalent of a 404/baby-left-in-a-basket. Y'all got to make a living and didn't even owe us that. —just hope if you're stuck on an island that it's a nice one.

Hi, I'm Galina! I am 33 years old, I am from Ukraine. I was looking for a long time where I could discuss TV shows and I liked this forum the most. I hope I will stay here for a long time!😎

I guess in a sense we are all new to Primetimer, aren't we?

I preferred the previously.tv name, primetimer sounds a bit cheaper to me (the logo more in your face too).  Just a name and logo I know, nothing else has changed here and I hope nothing does.

Is there a what, where, why article on this changeover?  If someone has a brief summary I'd appreciate it.

ETA: Please disregard.  I see the twitter announcement from @PreviouslyTV.

You mean this? 'Cause I'm still wanting to know the who, what, where, when, and why.

ETA: But then we never really got the full scoop on any of the other changes either. 

Somebody with the insider historical knowledge of all these shakeups should write a book. I would volunteer to edit (and ask questions) for clarity.

Note sure if this is the corrrect place to ask, but I will try! Has there been some problems with the site for the last couple of days? There was one long period of time(and several shorter ones) when I could not get in(and let me tell you, my stomach sank!) I depend on  you guys for all the tv forums that you guys provide! BTW, thanks for the great work!

I had a few brief ones--I think last night. I figured it was just growing pains since it happened at the same time that they switched the URL from forums.previously.tv to forums.primetimer.com

Hi everyone! I'm Lisa. I'm 27. Living in Brooklyn, NY.

Found this forum after searching (for spoilers 🙈) online about 90 Day Fiance. But it's been years (more like 13...) since I've discovered TV related forums in general (anyone remember Fan Forum?) so I'm glad to see such an active community still exists around here! Excited to be part of it, now. 😊

Hi everyone 😊 

After becoming hooked on RHOBH, to wanting to know what others thought of the show, to loving and being thoroughly entertained by the oh so many funny posters, to very recently becoming a member here, I now find there is this forum, (thank you walnutqueen!). 

I’m playing catch up and going back as far as 2015 - so much to read and enjoy and so little time in between real life and it’s distractions!

Forgive me if this is too personal but Kungfubunny, you are hilarious!  Along with many of your other posts which have had me nodding my head sagely, to grinning in agreement, your post about your experience with getting an iPhone had me in stitches - it was exactly my experience.  And this is what I’ve found through life’s journey, comedy is about truth.  Dave Allen (Irish comedian) did skits that had me doubled up with laughter and every word he said was simply about reality. 

Anyway, that’s my introduction.

Welcome to PTV (now PRIMETIMER) and to cronehood, @Pansy!

"Once Were Babes" is the title of my unmade movie biopic.

I was at my local Grocery Outlet this a.m., sporting a Superman logo tee, and my delightful stock clerk asked me if it stood for Superman or Supergirl.  I told him it stood for Supercrone, and we both laughed like loons.

Growing older is SO much better than the alternative ...

Isn’t it just!  Am I an official cronehead now? I hope so!

Bless you for being you walnutqueen - and thank you for making me so welcome.

Hi!  I'm brand new, just registered a couple of hours ago after lurking on the site since TWOP went down. 

I live in Oregon and can't imagine living anyplace else in the world. I'm a semi-retired coffin/casket maker (this is the point where I get weird looks of shock when I say what I do for a living). I'm going to retire at the end of the year, but still work there part time training.  My grandpa pounded it into my head to save, save, save for retirement as young as you can. I've been saving since I turned 30 and I'm taking advantage of it. I will be fully retired in a year and then I'll focus full time on my pets and my gardens. 

Nice to 'meet' you all!

You had me at Rescue, Mama, and solidified it with an "early" retirement plan!  You'll find a whole lot of animal lovers here, and bunch of gardeners, too. Welcome!

I'd be returning to the PNW, probably north of your beloved Oregon, if I could afford to move my comfortable fat ass away from easy peasy, lemon squeezy sunny SoCal ... le sigh.  ;~)

Wow, long, long time lurker here.  Way back to TWOP.  As soon as I got the nerve to set up a profile with them, they were gone.  I then found PreviouslyTV, lurked and lurked and lurked (as well as laughed and laughed and laughed), got the courage to set up a profile there and BAM! All of a sudden it was  PrimeTimer.  Figure I better get in while the gettin's good.  Right?  So nice to be here with you all. . . finally!
