I pm'd a mod regarding my situation the other day.Since you brought it up I will go public.
As a single father, money is often an issue.W/the rising cost of fuel and other necesities, I've had to tighten the belt a bit.One of the sacrifices I've had to make was cancellation of my internet service. I do have ahotspot on my porch where I can steal wireless access, but the signal is weak if it works at all.Because of this, my activity in the forum will be limited.I will be on when I can get on and will be back full time ASAP!

one of the reasons people have been slipping away has alot to do w/ the contest.There is always a surge of activity while there is a post related competition underway.

That's why I stopped posting on topics more than a week old. And just a note, Larry will be back he is or was in the process of moving to Texas. He has not gone.

I expected this to happen. I feel that the competition just made it very obvious who was in it to win it so to speak. After they were not earning something they all vanished.

Regarding regular posters it could be a multitude of things. When I get super busy with my jobs I have to give up time online. I have not logged into my MMO in a few weeks... I think it's about time. Today is a slacker day. lol.

Please don't hesitate to post on older threads kwikwi!Our archive is a valuable resource for members both old and new. But yes, "contest posters" will be here during every competition. I came across a couple of members in chat awhile back discussing how the were in line to win the first 2 months of the comp. and they're not nearly as active now s they were then. But everyones post count will bump up abit during a contest, mine included.Luckily our forum is administered by folks who know a post "padder" when they see one.

Very true, Abu. I should correct myself. I avoid posting on topics that have no informational value more than a week old. And good to see you on brother, even if just a few minutes a day.

Ronin is right! People have their lives. Now I also have a large family (7 "children" of which 3 are married and 2 close to it)also 7 Grandchildren plus, work, hobbies (hookah, smoking and shisha). a wife with a full time job also and we need time for all that BUT ....younger people and especially students or people starting a first or second job in life are quite busy if not more. every thing they do must be questioned. I love the verse from one of Bob dylan's earliest songs around 1963 "But I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now". which can mean a number of other things, but older people are usually on some kind of track, while a student in university is fighting for his future. i am not being facetious.(I didn't go to college, but learned my whole life and still do).But not for grades and all the stress that goes with it. so the end of the school year probably found a drop off of posts. With the same students just taking it easy now smoking hookah.don't worry, come september we will hear from them about their great smoking experiences.

Cuz hookah smokers like to smoke an hour bowl and then run and talk to the buddies about it for the next 5 months online at the forum.

Bubbly, I like your style. Dropping relevant Dylan quotes in your post? Top-notch.

Anyways, people don't realize how much time they have on hand, it's just that they squander it most of the time.

I hear you. I haven't been on line much the last few weeks either. I am usually on at work though. I have had weddings and concerts and trips to go on. I have to say i miss the days of being "young".... granted not saying 23 is old by any means just I wish I didn't have the daily stresses of bills and other things not so awesome.

I wish I could go back to the days of being home when the street lights came on and how Christmas always seemed so far away. Now i look at the calendar and go ::::eeek!::::: Christmas is almost here! I can't believe it's august already. Where has the time gone? I feel like I haven't done anything, and there's nothing I can really do about it except make due with the time I have now.

I'll be back to my normally posting self after the 10th. Hopefully by then things will have quieted down and become less hectic.

Well since by a number of accounts my name has been edited out and or deleted from this thread I will speak for myself...

I'm alive and well lol

As far as Larry goes, when last we spoke - he was busy working and I believe but I'm not sure he had said somehting about moving. It was a conversation in passing about 3 weeks ago.

Thanks for thinking about me guys! ;-)
