It was sad, for me at least, to see Barbwire leave the forum. She bade us all a farewell and I thought that was a classy thing to do. Now I notice that quite a few avid posters from just a few months ago are no longer posting. No more pics from Somewhatlovely, no SWgirl or Steve Waste. I have voiced my concern about the direction the forum is heading. It mostly fell on deaf ears. It seems that the forum is now comprised of a younger group of people. That certainly isn't a bad thing in itself, but is there a generation gap or something like that happening here? I find myself clicking on fewer posts every day. I don't know if I've seen most everything discussed before and it's just becoming redundant, or if I'm just burning out like others before me. One thing is for sure, this forum isn't as much fun for me as it was a few months ago. Any thoughts, especially from folks who ghave been aaround here a while?
