It really is just the natural course of things. I disappeared from LJs for about a year when I just wasn’t doing woodworking actively and thus, the website was just not as interesting to me. Conversely, when I spend more time here I find I am spending less time on some of the other focus-interest forums I am a member of. I run an unrelated forum and find the same.

When I came back I found that a bunch of changes had been made here.. Some I liked.. some I did not.. it took a while to get the hang of it again. My members say the same thing when they come back after I did some epic change. Some like it, some do not.

While keeping customers is a key trait in a business, a specialised interest forum just can’t expect to keep people around forever. They will come and go and there’s really nothing you can do about it. Especially in a world with dozens of woodworking forums and other resources.
