Before going into the background of this New, Relocated Epic Thread, I need to make clear an administrative note. One of the general forum rules do not apply to this thread, and that is the rule about subject matter. Although the center of this thread has historically been comfortable American tanks, culminating in the T110E5, most anything can be discussed in here, as long as it is presented in a civil, non-disruptive, generally respectful manner, and it otherwise complies with the normal content rules such as the prohibitions on images of a sexual nature (And doesn't proselytize our competition!).
So, that out of the way.
This was The Thread. When that thread was no longer The Thread, this was The Thread. Over time, The Thread grew old and as is the way with life, was laid to rest. So this was The Thread. Today, this is The Thread. So say we all.
There's an image going around somewhere, I'll add it back if I can find it, which is instructive as to the nature of this thread's discourse.
[Edit. Much obliged.
The bottom line for the new acolyte reading this is that it may be a good idea to go back over the past few pages, get an idea of the trend of the discussion, before jumping in. We welcome all those who seek the Wisdom of Comfort, but shall rend those who intrude with the purpose of causing unrest and discomfort in the gobberwarts with our blurglecruncheon, see if we don't.
So in our new home, we return to our comfortable contemplations.
