I wanted to reach out to you again and extend my complete gratitude to YOU. It is important to me to reach out to you once or twice a year to say thanks. Especially this year! We have more visitors/lurkers than ever!
Thank you for being a part of the HalloweenForum.com community. It is our members that make this community beyond great. I can’t thank you enough for being an awesome member.
I am very excited about the 2014 season. We have seen a spike of visitors and new Facebook fans over the past couple of months far beyond previous years.
Who runs this site?
My Name is Larry. I am the dude who created the site in 2002.
I also work with some amazing moderators that help a lot manage our community. Our moderators (in alphabetical order) DeadTed, Frankie's Girl, Halloweiner, Terra, UnOrthodOx and Ween12amEternal are amazing moderators and members. Each of them work many countless hours to help keep fight and other problems and issues that arise in the community. These amazing people really work hard and I personally could not applaud them enough. They are good people. Our moderators are a big asset to our entire community.
They make things better for everyone. You would be amazed at the amount of spam and other issues that you never see because of their dedication. Moderators: I cannot thank you enough.
With all of our hard work that we do, this place would be nothing without the great members like YOU! There are also a bunch of members who helps look over the site and let us know if there is a spammer or potential problem. These members are amazing!
About The Community:
I launched the forum n 2002. When it was launched, there really was not a lot of places on the Internet for us Halloween fanatics to hang out all year. The terms home haunter and home haunts really were not even used much yet.
Things have way better since then. There are members on every level. We have novice members that are just decorating for the first time, to home haunters building movie quality props. We also have many professional haunters, authors and the best of the best as well. The talent here is jaw dropping. Everyone is happy to help each other go to the next level.
As I have said many times before; It is our members that collectively make this such an amazing community. It is the contributions that each member posts that makes the community an amazing resource. I will always work to make this a better community for YOU! I like to think of our community as a large family. I do expect respect to our members.
Our philosophy that makes this an awesome community
Due to our amazing members and moderators, spammers and trolls (those who purposely try to cause problems) do not like it here. That is because the moderators and I really attempt to keep a family friendly atmosphere with as little problems and drama as possible. I wish that we could go without rules, however we all know that without our simple rules, the forum would be full of spam, content would be hard to find because of big flashy signatures, and people would be have flame wars (insult each other).
We are continued to be lucky to have the best sponsors possible. The advertisements that you see on this site help make it possible. Make sure to consider our sponsors for your Halloween needs.
There may be issues that I am not aware of or cannot yet resolve. If ever you need anything, please feel free to ask myself, or one of our moderators. If you have a problem or issue, let me know. I cannot fix something that I am not aware is an issue. We want you here. We want you to feel comfortable and come back often.
If you have a problem, we are happy to help you out. If you become a problem, we will be happy to help you OUT. Luckily, we have very few troublemakers.
