Here goes. It's the holidays. This fanbase, like it or not, is a pretty small and well-formed group of people. So, in that spirit, I'd list to start a little thread here, and see how it goes.

Say something to the rest of the fanbase. Just an expression, say what you like, say what you're thankful for, say a blanket statement that expresses how you feel about being a part of this community. If this thread gets locked for "not being useful" eh, at least I said how I felt before it did.

If you can, try to start each one off with "I just want you all to know", so here goes the first one.

I just want you all to know how much I love y'all. I come here every day, just like OCR, so that I can talk with my friends. Here is a much smaller group, so I get to know each and every one of you a little better, and every person stands out a whole lot more because there isn't as much battle for forum attention. Y'all are polite and caring, and I just want you all to know that beyond anything else, the kind of support I've seen for my musical hobby has been astounding. So I just want y'all to know I wouldn't be the same if I didn't take the chance to come here.

Who's next?

Edit: I know this is the corniest thing ever but, you know what, I told myself I'd never keep things to myself if I wanted to say them. SO THERE!

Edit Edit: It may also be the result of a total of four hours sleep each night since Saturday night, I can't tell.

I just want you all to know, that when I sing my horrible rendition to "Hey Dreamer (can't dance sleeping remix)" in the car, my heart is really going out to all of you.

I'd never would have imagined myself being a part of such a unique fan-base, but it's an honor... and never ceases to amaze me how much creativity and spirit this place has.

{Go us! The NiGHTS Army! WOOOO!}

I just want you all to know, I've always been a sort of outsider. I don't aim to have any serious impact on the fanbase. I don't write music or formally draw things - my artistic output doesn't lend itself to fan works at all. I haven't roleplayed in years and don't plan on restarting. I'm pretty sure any attempts I could hypothetically make to cosplay NiGHTS would be epic failures.
But I really love this fanbase and I feel happy just to be a part of it. Because NiGHTS has changed us all. It's the kind of game that really helped shape my consciousness and I think pretty much everyone here has had that kind of experience. Just seeing that purple flying jester do some of his aerial acrobatics can just STRIKE someone in the brain.

I love being able to see what NiGHTS fans produce. Because I think it all stems from some sort of Platonic form of NiGHTS-ness? I like being able to see how NiGHTS is reproduced after being translated by the souls of others.

(I hope this post is along the lines of what you are hoping for with this thread? I'm pretty sure I tend towards coming off as cold whenever I'm typing out forum responses. Too much time writing academic essays I suppose.)

I just want you all to know that I've never seen or been apart of a community as tight-knit, caring, or wonderful as this one. Every other place with forums I've known of prior to this has had constantly arguing members, cold or absent admins, and/or a lack of common sense. (There's more, but that's about the whole of it excluding the forums my friends and I have set up...but even then the sites are dead most of the time.) Here...it's like being a part of a family you never knew was there all along. Creativity is encouraged, craziness happens but there's always a reason for it (i.e. no trolling), and even if you're here for a short time, you end up being a part of something pretty quickly. It doesn't have to be something as awesome as a remix collab, but you'll at least find yourself talking with fellow forumers about an agreeable subject. You don't have to worry about trash talk coming your way if, for example, you say something like "I like Big from Sonic Adventure, because his missions are fun." Instead you may find yourself talking about the music from Emerald Beach, the creepy fish that look like they'll bite the overweight cat at any moment, or even tips on how to complete the levels the other characters have.

I've mentioned it once before in a bit of an article that everyone here is like family from the overzealous cousins to the uncles and aunts that are just as much fun as being around as the brother and sisters. Mom and Dad make sure there's a roof over everyone's heads...but somehow aren't able to keep Mr. Taylor the neighbor from popping up everywhere. XD (Not word-for-word on what I wrote, but you get the idea.)

I constantly find inspiration here along with some good friends (just because I don't click the button, doesn't mean I don't consider you a friend). NiDcom never ceases to surprise me and now when NiGHTS, my friends, and online family need help I try to do what I can here and there to help out. I went as far as - for the first time ever - to write a rap. I generally hate rap, but something about this place has slowly been changing me. I used to be the one who would stand out of the way during a dance, the one who tries to do her best and just keep a low profile, the one with so little confidence that she stopped singing out loud completely and...well generally regressed from there. Now, even though it strains my vocal chords, I'll try singing out loud (particularly "Hey Dreamer" which has lingered on my mind for so long that I'll open my eyes in the morning and hear '-eeeeeey DREAMER' before waking up completely). I've got some more consistency in my life (even my youtube channel shows this with four NiD videos up there in a row) and even my outline structures in fiction have gotten better.

Oh holy crud I've written a lot. I think i got off track a bit. XP I should just wrap this up. *ahem*

Coolest community ever! And as far as NiGHTS goes, there's still more I want to know about the Night Dimension. There's still NiD to go through and experience for myself one day. I want to one day feel what everyone else has in that first adventure and finally grasp a new view of the NiGHTS universe. Theories away and Happy Holidays! ^_____^

(This... This is what happens when I let out a bunch of things at once... I can never keep things short. XP)

I just want you all to know that you're insanely awesome. I've never been part of a fanbase that consists of dreams, melting e-mail servers for a video game character, knowing the actual company, crazy artsy, music, humor and pastries. I lurked for the site for years looking over everything and when I got my account and talked to a few of you I was glad to know I wasn't the only one that obsesses about NiGHTS daily. This place has probably been one of the biggest influences on my life. Both in the waking world and the NiGHTS dimension. This place brought me to staying a NiGHTS fan and brought me to other obsessions. I love how active you guys are in making NiGHTS known and have participated in events and gave out info to everyone.

Um.... I love Engelbaum, listened to your guys music all day long, had determination to get others into NiGHTS and I think DiG' and TRiPP' are now probably just as main characters as Claris and Elliot. 8P

I love you guys~ Lets all celebrate by going to café Algernon~

Merry Christmas~

Oh my gosh, you guys are making me teary ;_______;


I just want you all to know that I love you all so freaking much. Just when I think there's no sane person left in the world, I remember that I have this place. You all make me laugh, smile, relax, cry, sing, dance and just about everything else. If I had to describe this place and the people here in one word, it would be perfect.

You're all like family to me, and that means a ton for me considering I don't have many family members in real life anymore. When I think about it, the last two years I've been here have made me happier than I've been in ages. My fondest memories would have to be our PSU days, things were so awesome.

You all mean so much to me, I want to mega glomp you all personally xD Hopefully I'll have the chance to get some of you at Auchi~<3


I'm wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Stay safe and enjoy yourself! =D

I just want you all to know..

That even though I don't participate as often as I used to, you're all still among the most awesome people I've met online.
Back when the forums were new and even smaller than it is now, we were a close little group who would have fun together about all things NiGHTS and all things not, whether it be inside the threads, or at the little chat room we had.
A lot of good times were had and I have great memories of this place.
My only regret is not being able to stick around for as long and as often as I'd like now that college, work, and my social life has taken up more of my time.

But just know that even though I'm not on every day like I used to, or that I can't join in projects and stuff like I used to, my thoughts are always with this place, with the awesome people that reside in it, and the awesome game that brought us all together <3

Besides, it's impossible to forget such an awesome hardcore group who is passionate about what they love! W00t go NiGHTS! It will always be one of my fave games of all time, along with my newer additions to the list.

I love you guys! And have a wonderful holiday! :(

I just want you all to know that this is why i do what i do for this community. These posts that i've read here remind me why i'm still here. I do have a bit to say so bare with me.

'Dont Forget NiGHTS' campaign weighs heavy on me. There are times when i do the best i can to balance what i know because a lot is at stake and it's hard trying to juggle things like this. I have told you, the community, everything that you need to know in order to make a difference for NiGHTS. At the same time there are things i have to still keep to myself because i could do more damage than good with it. This campaign has brought me to stressful breaking points with trying to keep everything in balance. You can ask TRiPPY, she see's how i react to things, she see's what i have to do and what i have to deal with. The entire time i've been here i have waited for an opportunity to support NiGHTS on a large scale and this is it. And it's taking everything out of me, it's been some of the longest months of my life.

And then i look at a topic like this.

And i smile, because i know that there are people who respect NiGHTS just as much as i do. There are people who respect the community that TRiPPY had built and there are those who recognise that this fanbase can honestly be said to be unlike any other.

We're a small group. But this campaign is showing me we are a strong group. Never before have we had to stand our ground, and to be honest hopefuly we'll never have to again. But seeing this campaign in motion has made me realise just how passionate we are. And i thank everybody who has been supporting NiGHTS.

I remember when i turned up at the old forums back in 2004. I remember how i felt about the place, creating Valentine, making friends, learning a lot about myself in the process. 5 years ago, time sure does fly. And things sure do change. And now i see new faces turning up, people typing things that i used to say when i was just a little DiGi-newbie and it makes me smile because those people are feeling the same things i did when i arrived. It's an online community but it helps shape and form your real life. I began wearing green because of the old Gen stuff. I have recently begun to wear purple to represent NiGHTS. My music and style of rap changed from being dark and depressing to this bunny-man alter-ego-persona that has lightened things up for me. NiGHTS and his community has done a lot for me and now i'm seeing it do a lot for others.

So i thank you all for coming through here at some point, being effected by this place and taking a part of it with you.
I hope there are many more years to come for us :(

You're a wonderful community and it's my honor to work for it.

I just want you all to know that I find everyone here to be a wonderful group of extraordinary people.

I came here back in 2007 and lurked around but didn't join because I felt that I was too much of a noob. I felt as though if I tried to join and say anything to anyone here, I'd be frowned upon and chased away. In March of 2008 though, I felt I finally knew enough about NiGHTS to join the ranks of this wonderful community. When I did join, I felt like a fool. Everyone was so kind and welcoming to me. I honestly wish I would have joined back in 2007 because of how kind everyone here is. I was just so happy when I did find this place because I honestly didn't think that there was a place where I could go that was completely dedicated to NiGHTS and could talk amongst other NiGHTS fanatics such as myself.

What really pleased me was when I discovered all the different fan works such as art, music, etc. When I first listened to DiGi rap, I was amazed. I didn't think that there was any good rap at all and he proved me wrong. I love coming here every day and chatting with you all. Some time next year, I hope to reward you all for your kindness with my fan album, Sounds From The Dream. It's gonna be a great album filled with a lot of guitar music and some guest vocalists. I'm really excited to finish it.

I just want you all to know that you all are my second family.

I can't belive how much I've changed seince I joined in... wow, 2007! only 3 years!
I'm not very social, due to mental disabilities, my academic level is normal, but my social skills are about a year or two behind my actual age, making it hard for me to talk to people and make friends within my own age group.

Then I came here.

And my secret world exploded. My few close friends know a little bit about the forum because I talk about it so frequently. I've stared drawing, creating, DREAMING for the first time in what felt like forever.

This is my favorite place.
I can never fully wait for the final school bell to ring, for the bus to finally come to my stop, for me to stop tripping over my own foot prints in the deep snow, to unlock the door, to turn on the computer, and immerse myself with the people who I've come to call family.


....yup.

The NiGHTS fanbase. What can I say that hasn't been said yet? Few of us actually know each other in reality, yet we are all friends. Sure there are tough times (NiGHTS not being in ASR, JoD controversy, et cetera), yet we still all care about each other and things are never truly sad or angry. Even when TRiPPY and DiGi made the ASR announcement, we still looked for hope through DLC. NiGHTS fans don't wallow in self pity- we keep the faith for as long as it takes and we try to accompplish our goals. Over a decade of no NiGHTS games may have stood in our way, but the community never died- it continued to grow and flourish, adapting to change and embracing it. We always have hope, and we use that to work towards our dreams Isn't that what this season is all about? :)

I just want you all to know that this place, everyone in it, everyone who dreams and loves NiGHTS, everything about it, is simply wonderful!

Very few online communities have the strength and commitment of this one. The last forum I was a dedicated member of felt much like this one - we were family, we were friends, and despite our differences we had enough in common to stick together, no matter what. I never thought I'd find another place like the ol' PFFA, but here we are! All extremely unique and different and zany in our own little ways, but we're fine with that. I can't begin to tell you what that means to me!

This is a fandom that can make anything possible! We got a second game after a decade of teaser pictures and cameos. We rallied together to help one of our own when her home was in trouble. We have rallied together to stand by NiGHTS, and we have gotten the attention of the head honchos themselves! There's a certain magic to be found in dreams - not only have we found it through NiGHTS, but we have shared it, encouraged it, and made the internet a brighter place! How many websites can claim that, I ask you! XD

And.. although my contributions and participation in the community are sparse at best, I also want you all to know that I am honored and proud to be counted among your ranks. :)

NiGHTS gave my dreams the gift of flight.. some have come true, others are beyond the horizon. But if I can make it this far, I want y'all to know that you can fly too!

Oh, how do I start? :) That's always the hardest part...Well, I found the site at the same time I really looked into NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, and it was what everyone here said that convinced me to buy it. I had been strongly considering it, even though I knew next to nothing about NiGHTS, but you guys gave me that final push. I'd never gone out and bought an unknown game before, so this was a risk for me, but I'm glad I took that risk. So thank you for introducing me to NiGHTS. :D And you all have spread my gaming horizons even more since then. I was mostly limited to the main Nintendo games before (Pokemon, Zelda, Metroid), but I bought Klonoa for the Wii, Klonoa 2, and The Shadow of the Colossus because you guys said they were good games and they looked like the kind of things I would like. I'd never heard about them before, and if you hadn't mentioned them, I would never have found them and experienced how fun and emotionally touching they are.

Like many have said already, this fanbase has given me another family. I'm fairly close to my family, but it's great to have family here that I can actually talk to about NiGHTS and dreams. My brothers and a couple of my friends are vehemently against NiGHTS while others have never heard of the games and don't give a care, so yeah, this is usually the only place I get to fuel my "obsession." After hearing so many creepy stories about stalkers on the internet, I didn't think I'd ever be able to trust other people on the internet, but I can't help but trust many of you. It's just obvious from what you say and do that your intentions are pure. That's the only reason why I was willing to send stuff with my e-mail that has my real name in it (shh, don't tell my dad XD).

I've never been very involved in a fanbase before, and I'm glad I started with this one. Your passion for NiGHTS and the incredible fan works that are produced by that inspire me. Seeing what can be done motivates me to improve my own art, and watching you do so much for NiGHTS makes me realize that it's okay to love what I love and express that feeling wherever I am. I don't think I'd be able to draw NiGHTS or my other favorite characters at school in front of everyone if I didn't know you guys. My English teacher last year once said that she admired how I was inwardly driven instead of outwardly driven, but that inner drive of mine, although it doesn't come from my physical surroundings, does come from somewhere: NiGHTS, my dreams, and everyone here.

So, I love you guys! I also hope to meet you in real life someday (I never thought I'd say that to an online person, either). I hope you all are nightmare-free and never stop dreaming! May you reach your most heartfelt goals, find your true calling in life (if you haven't already), and never give up on life no matter what suffering comes your way. I think that's the best wish I can give to anyone. Merry Christmas (or any holiday you may celebrate)!

Maaan, I don't know the last time when I've cried in happiness. You guys rock! Happy Holidays to everyone! :) May your days be bright and your NiGHTS be cheerful! Tis' the season to fill your heart with glee. Glee I say! Cast a smile at people! Sing out loud at random places! Print out a Mr. Taylor mask and do the Macarena! Find some people to carol with you! Uh... All out of ideas, but you get the picture. ^^;

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays to all! I love you guys. (I...don't think I've ever said that to my friends before.) Rock on!

I need to echo Penelopi here- I was worried about giving away personal information (and I still am- It took a lot of personal debate to put up my interests. :)), and I was ridiculously formal at first. But you all are great, and I never feel like you are sitting at your computers thinking "Oh no, here's Noctourne again. I hate when Noctourne posts!" No, I feel like you actually care about my input (even if you really don't, so HA!). So, to all you NiGHTSies out there: chag sameach, happy Yule, merry Christmas, happy Kwanzaa, and, if I missed something, have fun. :)

I just want you all to know that it's for stuff like this that I came back to the 'base. Even going back to when it all first began in, I realized the impact that some of you oldies had on me. And having been off and on in my attendance, I realize now why I keep coming back.

I have friends here that I love, and I've been making new ones ever since. I may never say it directly, but you all are a family to me. I may not speak to each of you individually, but you all still mean something to me, even if it's seen as faintly as "someone I care about cares about you"--that's reason enough for me to care. And this is a place we give a bit of love to everyday, so it's always worth it. I may have argued with some of you in the past, disagreed, had an awkward exchange, or anything else, but that doesn't change anything. It doesn't change the safe feeling this place has. It doesn't change that I still care about you nuts.

There's a lot more I could say, but that's the most important part. Never stop being awesome, guys. <3 Because you are--all of you. You guys inspire me, that is how awesome you all are. And I <3 yew.

Awww, this thread really warms my heart on this cold cold morning.

I just want you all to know, that this forum is the only place I truly call home online. I love being a part of such a close-knit community of people dedicatedo to a single series of games. I love feeling like we're the NiGHTS united frontline. This fanbase has given me so much over the years, I think I joined back in early 2006, just before JoD was announced. Since joining, the people here have given me the motivation to improve my art skills, and become a better, politer, less shy person in general. Every single person here has given me a reason to keep obsessing over NiGHTS, even when I'm on a Games Design Course where no-one has heard of it. Just more potential fans eh lol. This place has given me so many online friends, that if I could I'd be sending tonnes of Christmas Presents to every single year.

But seriously, I never want to leave this community. You guys are stuck with me for good.

I just want you all to know...

That before I came here I was a NiGHTS fan who was happy about the second coming out finally, but after I got here I found myself delving into my dreamworld and caring more about what happens in them and how it may affect me.

Merry Christmas NiGHTS everyone!

This topic is so sweet X)

I just want you all to know that I'm not going anywhere else. As long as NiGHTS has a single fan I'll be there. People might think that i do a lot of work, which i technicaly do, but a website community isn't a community without the people to make it one. So thank you to everyone who visits my site, uses the forums, supports NiGHTS and sends things in. You're all so magicaly creative little peoples and I love coming here to work on the site because i know it gets apreciated in one way or another.
I might not talk as much as i used to, not because i don't have anything to say, I just know that ONE DAY i'll get this website up fully and be able to sit back and chat until the cows come home, hehe. I'd like to think that even though I'm busy a lot you guys don't see me as being a distant cold admin. To be honest sometimes i just like to read and absorb all the activity like a big spooonge lol.

I hope you all have a great Christmas and a better new year than the year we just had. It's had it's ups and downs, but we're still here another year on. Lets stick together and keep the dreams alive.

Love you guys xx

I just want you all to know that you guys are my favorite fanbase... EVER! You guys are dedicated. So dedicated, That you guys spent ELEVEN years waiting for a new NiGHTS. I couldn't even imagine Waiting that long! You guys also Upload everything NiGHTS related that you have for the Rest of the Community to see!

You guys are also really creative. Seeing what everyone made for Maresuke's Reala day, Kentilan's fangame, and DiGi and Level 99's Winter Dreamers EP, Are just a few great things this fanbase has made.

And I still really Like how you guys would Move Heaven and Earth to have NiGHTS in ASR.

That's why I like you guys :P

I want you all to know that this community helped me in a time of need, and even if I don't show up here all of the time... even if it seems like I don't care about NiGHTS as much as I used to... that you all mean alot to me, and I will stand by this fanbase, even if I am a "shadow user."

And never forget your spirit or forsake your passions, because you'll be empty if you do.

That's all.
