People leave forums all the time… it happens… (shrug)

I have been a member of communities before where I just loose interest… even if I was super active for a while. And not necessarily loosing interest in the subject, sometimes just discussing it with other people.

I don’t think it’s a big deal.

I was #489 when I joined. It’s now over 19000 members.
Too much to keep track of.
There are a number of us oldies but I so seldom see or hear them.
Lost in the crowd.

Too much to keep track of is right! Some people dissappear for awhile because of health or famiily. Life. It happens. I’m courios, is that younster still on here? I liked him and havent seen anything since.

I started around the same time as Sawdust2. Lately I have not been as active as I was in the past. I still do drop in and read the postings of my buddies.

Well with that many members some will idle for a while and come back, like someone said it’s not a big deal.
After a certain age you slow down some then come back with small projects, like I do.

You know, I haven’t been a member here for all that long, but I still love to sign in and check out what’s going on. I still marvel at some of the projects, craftmanship, and pure artistry that members display.
There is a wealth of information available here for the taking. I’ve found it to be seriously “user friendly”, and and so very informative. Thanks to all who post and coantribute. I like L J.

I really don’t post often. However, I do drop by just about every day. I’m into a big project – for me anyway – and am not spending very much time on the computer. But every so often I see a post that’s kind of like a survey and will put in a quick answer. I LOVE this site!!!

I doesn’t mater what you are doing, the same thing happens. People come and go, move on to more interesting things as they lose interest. I spend too much time on here and the computer in general. But that is because of migraine control more than anything else. Too much activity and bright light sucks ;-))
