    Hi,

    You may wonder why you don't see anymore posts from me since... maybe a month? More? Well first of all, I did not disappear, and I'm still looking at the forums every day (and see it empty).

    However I may explain why I didn't post more: the main reason? Simple, I'm pretty much talking alone. And I don't need to do it as I know very well what I want to say ;) Second reason, this month I simply had little to no time for my hobby projects and therefore nothing so trilling to share with you guys.

    On the other side, I do have some ideas for up coming projects I may want to try to give a go, as well as some experiences I could share, but unless somebody reacts to my posts, I see little to no interest of doing so.

    Short way to make me post? POST TO ASK / REACT to this post! ;)

    I've missed your posts.
    I'm somewhat in the same position, since the birth of my baby, I'm finding less time to get work done and am trying to find other ways to make money at the same time. Lot of stress and lot of pressure.

    I'm interested in your new ideas though. I understand your reasoning for not posting in a while.

    At the same time, we need to try and create some engaging content for people to react to.

    First of all, congratulations for your baby! I hope you, the mother (your wife?), and the baby are fine!

    I shall explain my ideas in the coming days then.

    Well it's less active also due to me not posting much.

    Between work and weekends we all have to sleep somehow... I think it's a domino effect though: people post less because there a less people posting.

    Fully true spud... at least it is for me. And I was certainly annoyed to be alone to post.

    It would help if 1imPunter1imPunter gets active again, considering its his forum. Then actually deploys some advertising to boost the community.

    Would be good sniko, but I doubt he has the willingness / time to do so.

    Shame.
    Why should I invest my time in something when the owner doesn't?

    I think this is one of the main reasons many people went inactive really.

    It's really all of ours. He's just the one fronting the bills.
