The Shadowlands site has some gems but yes, I agree that too many of them seem to be written by kids taking the piss, or else are simply the "Grampy came back to say goodbye/I heard footsteps" sort of tale, which can be spooky but is too common to be really interesting IMO. I also desperately wish they'd edit/proofread the submissions before they went up; I do a lot of scrolling on the rare occasions I visit because I can't be arsed trying to wade through a lot of gobbledygook.

THE OTHER REALLY ANNOYING THING ABOUT MANY OF THESE SITES IS THE RAMPANT USE OF CAPS LOCK AND LACK OF PUNCTUATION LIKE EVERY SINGLE WORD THEY ARE SAYING IS SO IMPORTANT AND SCARY IT MUST BE SCREAMED AT YOU TO GET YOUR ATTENTION!

LOL

That's one of the things I like about this forum, it tends to be a little more mature and have a slightly lower BS level than most.

My question is, what do you guys look for in a forum like this? Just curious what other's criteria for a good paranormal IHTM style site would be. Are there certain topics ro styles of participation you prefer?

FYI, the TAPS site from the guys on Ghosthunters can be pretty cool, but you have to register first (it's free).

Someone from here had a nice site for a while, with great IHTM-type stories, and I sent quite a few of mine there. It's gone now, unfortunately.

There's a thread on ghosts currently on a discussion board about Detroit. Don't know how long it'll be there, but for now, people here might enjoy some good stories:

Ello,

This is an IHTM-alike on a very small scale, but this summer, on my blog I'm curating a series of Forteanish stories from people I know. It's called 'Curious Things' and it's here:

You can even submit your own, if you wish (and oh my I know you have a bunch of doozies).

Please excuse the pimp-out, but I am a very small pimp and it's not for profit or owt - just an interesting fing to do.
