Real talk, we're currently about 4-6 years into a deep sleep, when faceboot made it's big hit and myspace died it hit in a big and hard way and made us look at the flowers within a few months. Up to that point Myspace had been keeping them in check and no one wanted facebook but the second myspace announced their big change back to music it destroyed the game and created a whole new one. Most forums and other communities just straight died because of the sheer power and convenience of facebook.

I've tried a few times since then to bring the life back but I can't compete with facebook they literally have everything and "community" alone, it just isn't enough to fight a behemoth comprised of literally anything you could want including community. In just a few months from facebook making that big move everyone left and created their own micro groups where they could choose who to talk to and who not to. We couldn't even find new life on facebook, that group was pretty much DOA. If no one wants to be part of the community here and make the place lively then there is nothing I can do to make it happen because I'm not zucc rich to make people want to come, it's really a group effort for it to happen. I'm keeping the doors open, the lights on, keeping this url on lock just in case anyone wants to show up and for the longest time it's just me and Ginger and every so often Madelchai shows up or Spooky but as you can see we don't say a hell of a lot. Most of the time it feels like we're just checking the pulse, like a dutiful nurse.

I know Facebook has taken over everything that's why I stopped mine for a bit because it was getting too much for me to cope with. I'm guesssing a lot of forums don't exist now because of it. This Facebook has just killed off everything for me. tantrum tantrum

I check here everyday to see if anything was posted. As for what others are doing on facebook I have no clue because I abandoned that platform years ago because of the time wasting games (and I didn't want family to find me); this wound up being a good thing because a head hauncho guy at the company I work got fired for searching subordinates on facebook and soliciting sex from them.

I'm on a hiatus from Facebook for awhile it's been feeding my depression into an overload. I'm currently looking into some counselling to help me. People don't understand when I say I'm mentally unwell, they think it's just a joke.


Oh my goodness Ginger that's horrible!

Facebook just is.
It's not something I check into a whole lot anymore since I don't game and I don't feel the need to post photos of lunch.
But I have family on there I keep in touch with so I check it.
On occasion I post something of substance but it's ignored so why bother really?
The better part is the podcast groups and the private groups but you can get the same here.
It's also a bit more private.

that might not actually be ignored, it might be the will of the almighty Faceboot. They decide who gets to see what and when it's view able. It's happened more than once I'll get that notification 1 to pop on and when I check it says "just now" or x minutes ago just to click on it and see the post/comment could be anywhere from 17 hours ago to 4 days ago.

Guyssssss!! I have missed you! FB is a behemoth, but I've partly been gone cause I forgot my stupid password and couldnt figure out how to get it to reset. Thank you, Vampira, for sending me the note and make my curiosity drive my password reset. I have come back on occasion to check the forum, but like Endless said, there hasn't been much movement.

That being said, how is everyone? Hows things? Whats new? What you been up to?

When more member see the message I sent I'm sure we will get more movement hopefully. But it's nice to see people again like the good old days!
