    You know, I've always wondered this.
    Anyone have an answer? I mean like, seriously.
    It wouldn't even be that bad but the whole thing is like Frankenstein and the Monster... like, Costello worked his ass off creating the Monster (EoF), then was repulsed by it and fled.
    I just don't get it.

    I always assumed it was created so we'd all have a place to have fun and screw around.
    To say and do things that won't have any bearing on the important parts of our forum.

    It was created for the reason it was named... TESTING~

    they used this part of the forum to try out new things added to the forum and check if anything was off. As time went by, it was then turned into a random place for fun.

    It's a dumping ground for useless threads in other areas. Stuff that doesn't get trashed, but is completely off-topic in some other area gets moved here.

    It's also a place for members to post ridiculous crap.

    That's how I see it anyway.

    Little-known fact; the EOF is surrounded by soundproof glass, so in the other forums we don't have to hear the cries of the damned.

    The EoF was created because if we didn't have it half of would be banned due to not having an outlet for our inner troll

    The EoF was not created...
    It emerged from the depths of the users souls, as a wish for a place where they could say "pie" for no reason at all, a place where they could be themselves without any society mask, a place to express like little boys/girls(/etc?) even though they are adults.

    But basically, this:
