Topic tags/keywords: question activity

Seems to me that activity has been waning on here the last month or so. Fewer projects, only a couple pages a day and fewer topics in the forum to browse. Or, is it just my imagination?

I agree. Wonder why?

Greetings Topamax:..... You know… I think you ‘re right about the activity going down. I’ve kinda noticed that too a little. But one thing I have noticed more…... seems like all the old members are gone or just not posting because of the growing number of new people we are getting on here…... guys like Roper, Roger Clark, Blankman, etc., etc. But, this time of year everyone gets busy doing outdoor things, also. That may be what’s happened to those guys. Either that, or this site just got too big for them.

I think it is a seasonal phenomenon as well.

I’m still here!!!!!!

Bob, you know what shape my shop is in but I will take a picture or two of my clamp rack when I am through. I come to this site every day to read and view but post little.

it’s not your imagination – it’s actually happening right before our very own eyes – the world is coming to an end ;)

I think it’s like everything else in life- it has it’s moments. sometimes it’s up, sometimes its down.

I vote for seasonal activity. I’m making a ton of cutting boards, lazy susans, wine balancers, just not posting them as projects. I’ll be trying a serving tray later, maybe I’ll try to post that. I’ve had pictures of my shop to post now for five months but just have not gotten around to it. A little lumberjock lazy I guess. I’ve been looking quiet a bit though.

All the woodworking sites slow down this time of year in Canada anyway . Too nice outside to be online . Lots of work to do too !

I look at it like this … I can either spend my time here (on the computer), or there (out in the shop).

Since I have a pretty good-sized ‘honey-do’ list of projects (for the Sewing Room), I just don’t have time to be online as much.

I think it’s a combination of seasonal and the lousy economy. I still see quite a bit of activity though…maybe not as much as usual. The weather is starting to improve in my area…so work is taking off…means I will be in my shop less :*(
