I'm also noticing that our most active members are mostly entering their senior year of high school or have jobs now, or both; and that also effects things (Xeo, you should know this very well).

At least in California, school is still in session until the last week of June, sometimes it's year round. That is besides the point though.

Things will pick up, they always do.

*nods* It's ok, Xeo. But then again, I did leave because of stuffs. My life had just gotten really busy, and I htink it might be the same wiht others.

Early this year I had two jobs for about 5 months, and that made it REALLY hard to get ANY sleep. I had no free time. *shrugs* Then I was working graveyard, and that was hard.

Imagine those that go to school and have jobs. Like Kaijin. But, he never posts much anyway, even before he had a job.

I'm gunna try and get my Fiance to join. hopefully that'll be another active poster. As far as getting new members, I don't know how to go about attracing new members. I've had permanant links up on all my websites even while I was inactive, but I don't get much traffic, and those that DO go to my sites are older and looking to buy certain things. (unless they go to my main site).

*sighs* If you have any ideas, I'll help.

He did join a long time ago, he just doesn't post. PBoy if I'm not mistaken.

I agree with what Elara said on the whole senior year thing, and jobs and stuff. This year is just weird...as far as work is concerned, no, senior year is not the ultimate tough time. Cuz once you're outta high school, there's real life/college to worry about. Which in my opinion, college is like "real life", only you get graded on how you deal with it.

Anywho...my point is...as far as actual school work is concerned, no this isn't very tough...I've just noticed that even though the work is a bit easier, I have a lot more due in a lot less time. I've also been consumed in visiting colleges, SATs, ACTs, and other extracurricular activities that I'm being offered scholarship money for. Also, my lunch is a pretty early this year, rather than going into a long explanation to why that affects my sugar and why this way actually is better than the other choice, I'll just say that rather than be wide awake during my free time and being online posting and stuff, I'm asleep.

That explanation may not affect the board itself really, but it's something that not only holds true for me, but may very well hold true to a lot of other people here. **shrugs**

I just think a lot of people have gotten bored, left, or just don't care ... honestly.

I mean, fact of the matter is, I'm in school all day everyday of the weekday, and then I work 30 hours a week on top of that, and I still get in more posts than a lot of other users, even when it doesn't feel like I'm posting that much at all.

I'm not trying to argue, just pointing out a fact.

Yeah, it is just a weird time for us all, a lot of us are older and everything, but still even before school was up the activity wasn't that grand. And looking at other boards, I see older people (in their young 20's) as the top and normal posters.

So, I don't know what to say. Again, I'm not trying to argue with anyones opinions here, and I agree with a lot of things (Evo's case, College stuff, etc), but still, it just feels like we could be doing -something- to help out, but we're not.

I *feel* the same way, Xeo. Like there is something we can do, but maybe there's not. I mean... I've at one point or another, brought it up to every online community or sorts that I'm a part of, and mentioned it to the people I know IRL.

IS there anything we can do?

Elara, I was under the impression that his account got deleted when the board was hacked? Or is that not how it works? In any case, I'll see if I can get him to POST. He'd at least post in the gamer forums. Heh.

I used to post heaps when I was a newbie, but now since I have gotten used to boards. I don't really post much, maybe once every 4 days...

Evo: Yeah, if you look at the memberlist his name shows up... he just has no posts now is all.

Correction, he has one post.
