I hate to keep using that "ghost town" analogy, but it sure does seem to fit. I used to post something and say "Hello" and would get back two dozen posts in an hour. Now I say "Hello" and just hear the echo bouncing back and forth off the "walls"..."Hello...hel lo.......hello.....hel lo......".

Anyone else find this a sad loss?

I usually sign on everyday and see if any new posts. I contribute most times.

I check the forum every day. I don't respond unless there's something new and worth commenting on, and I assume most people do the same thing as I.

I also check the forum at least once a day. Unfortunately today I'm stuck doing Statistics homework. I'm getting my ass handed to me ... My final is next Thursday and we were surprised with an assignment that is supposed to demonstrate our knowledge of the course. This is one class that I do not want to take again if I don't have to.

I log on when I can, but it's just not as fun to visit now that things have changed on here. It doesn't seem to be as informative as it used to be.

Col, I took Chem 1A 2 times. And back then we had to do every calculation by hand and also memorize all the elements and formulas. Final was 4 hrs long. I'm so glad I'm long out of school.

It is what it is. Hopefully current members can keep it going til more chime in. I have noticed a few coming back every now and then. I'm also noticed the green dot on sometimes on members. Needless to say when members that follow others don't see them, they also don't comment.

On a brighter note, I guess it's fortunate there is still one editor volunteering her time. Anyone heard from Wicked Wahine ?

Maybe one day when EF is going better $wise, it will come up with a new program. Looks like the DR program bit the dust for now.

I honestly haven't had any desire to even be on since I think perhaps June? Though my reasoning is pretty good. I found out I was (finally!) pregnant and ended up delivering my daughter via emergency c-section 2 weeks ago, 14 weeks early of my due date.
It hasn't been a easy time and I only wanted to focus on my pregnancy (that and I had 0 libido) and it's slowly returning (the timing sucks, I can't do anything for another 4 damn weeks, and my c-section incision got infected, to which now it has to be packed and cleaned daily so no fun time for a while...)

I do notice a decline though, it's obvious even now to me. Maybe there will be new members and things will get better! But right now I don't really care...I'm only thinking about my baby who is in the NICU.

I have had a huge amount of personal drama as of late in addition to the normal hectic nature of this time of year. I haven't had time to even put out one decoration. Sorry I have not been around more. Hopefully next year will be a better year.

I had an account before where I was very active. I had to close that account because I had a falling out with a person who I had referred. This person was the type that would spread my personal business whenever they saw it here so I didn't have much of a choice.

I made a new account but I haven't been as active as I used to be. I understand a lot of changes have occurred. The whole site seems a lot emptier than I remember. Anyone know where I can find the post that started it all?

Sorry to hear about the harassment. I hope your experience will be better from now on. Darn those trouble makers !

We also have not yet put up decorations. Been raining so much here. Any spare time is spent leaving up all the leaves from the trees in our neighborhood. Let's hope everyone has a nicer year in 2015.

I have been away from the forum, for awhile. Seems most of the regs are gone......perhaps nothing new to say which is really sad......

How bout an alternative take on a familiar situation? As I'm discovering, there are multiple ways to approach a situation.

Some members are sad the forum is so quiet. If they and others would start participating it would help. Like a snow ball rolling or a wheel turning.

I mostly come and go lately since it's so slow and I've gotten really busy with real life and subeta.
It just doesn't seem the same since so many people left though.

I'll be busy again this week (holiday cookie/banana bread baking and making oreo truffles so I can ship off a 10 pound or so box of goodies to my bf) but I'll try to figure out some interesting and ideally fairly fresh topics to post though.
(Also...I had to vote for the llamas...the llamas can never leave us. xD )

yeah, this is & has been a ghost town for a long time. and for at least 1 1/2 years, we have seen EF's lack of concern & interest in the community & the review program. I think this is a loud message from EF. I didn't want to accept that so I hung around here far too long. time to move on. I have since found a few sites that are so much more friendly & fun. occasionally, I come back here to see if any friends are still here & if there are any promising changes - not going to happen. too bad - so many of us, & there were many, had so much fun & learned here.

I only check about once a month now, used to be a daily visitor. I truly miss the friends I had made and the fun and education of the forums.

Well, it's mid Feb now it looks like some new and returning members are making new posts. Yipee ! Would anyone else like to join in ? How about the Bignuf's ?

I have also been wondering about the Bignuf's. I hope they are just lurking and haven't completely decided to jump ship. Either way, I hope all is well with them.

Well, to all the members who said," no new posts". I'll noticed quite a few lately.

I'm relatively new here so I can't really say how it is compared to how it was before. But from a newbie perspective, it seems adequately active.

Newbie here. I'm on the more introverted side and tend to be slow to make friends as it were but it would be nice to see the forums more active.
