History of Xixax?

I'm sorta new around here; most interested in the PTA forum. Can anyone relate a history of the site?  When / how / why was it formed?  Was it always film-related, etc, etc.

Long story short, we started on the forums at ptanderson.com. When that website was shut down, Michael Wilson started this forum and invited us over. More info here:

Curious question back: how did you found xixax, through cigs and red vines?

I haven't been around for that long compared to others members here, but it's rarely you see new members post anything. They mostly lurk around in the shadows. There's usually some activity around big news regarding a new PTA film or around it's release, though.

Also, don't forget to introduce yourself here!

Some quick googling didn't turn up anything...  Has there ever been any discussions of Xixax elsewhere--by non-Xixaxers?  Or Xixaxers who were perhaps lurking or posting undercover?    Maybe this is such an off-the-radar place that only the truly motivated find their way here.  Perhaps I'm thinking of a situation like Reddit, where they'll roll their eyes at 4Chan (or vice-versa)?  Is Xixax really the one-of-a-kind, low-key, insular place that it feels like sometimes?

I'm hardly one to speak on this with any authority, but yeah, I think it is. Been fascinating to watch the rest of the movie bubble catch up over the years while this place has remained a secret garden.

it's important to my mental health for there to be at least one place i can talk about one thing i like in this world, and really anytime you movie geek here you're doing okay

once again casually overwhelming the place. even with faulty conversations i think the spirit still lives. there's maybe a lower amount of posting than during other low periods, but i actually think there's more general people than other times. and many people with deep roots. frankly again again i see the names of people i know nothing about. sometimes i wonder if people i irl know stop through here and wonder about this side of me unseen to them. these days i'm pretty solid at keeping it pure movies. this is as far as i go off track, this post that's about me, about you.

it is still one of the sites I visit regularly. I enjoy reading the posts here, even if they are few.

Ive been around, in both participatory and non-participatory capacities, since the early days of ptanderson.com. Activity and passion here ebbs and flows, usually in strict accordance with PTAs shooting schedules, but this forum remains for me a treasure trove, a wellspring of cinephilic joy, dense with knowledge and teeming with positive, often hilarious vibes. I love you all.

Also: we helped, in our own way(s), birth the inimitable David Lowery! A great soldier of cinema.

Yay us.

if we don't like each other by this point we're doing it wrong

I registered in 2003. I can't think of other sites I still visit after 15 years outside of maybe IMDb and Yahoo! Sports. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram didn't even exist...

Too much history over here  :violin:
