I'm tired. I just woke up from a 6 hour lasting sleep after being awake for 24 hours. Darn night-shifts.

Re: How are we all again?

^ Yes. Sorry. I fail at life. <:D

Still, yes, it was quite lovely, thank you. Quite lovely. Loved the architecture, the culture, and just the prolific and inspiring "oldness" and beauty of everything--the great, sometimes ancient, historical significance and artistry everywhere you went. There were only a few "challenging" times--only two threats of homelessness and one pugnacious bar patron (entirely unrelated incidents)--only moderate, but continuous, trouble with train acquisition, plumbing operation, currency identification, airport navigation (in Canada, especially), vernacular adaptation, food modification, etc., etc., etc.. Despite that, everything went quite smoothly and enjoyably. :) From our "whirlwind," yet not whirlwind, tour, it seems like quite a splendid place indeed. :)

That's sad! Why send it there when we could simply start posting more often! :P

Re: How are we all again?

Once posting becomes a chore rather than something inherently fun, there would have to be something to bring it back to a place where posting is made fun again for the site to thrive. This site has been fairly constant and unchanging, which is both good and bad. It thrived best when Weasel was involved. Without him there's only so much that can be done.

Re: How are we all again?

Thats very true, and precisely why EC was arguing for another person to be made admin so that the site could be kept running and Weasel could go about his life. It's hard to change anything, though one good thing is that we do have some semi-active members that can contact him when things need fixing. It's strange that a general interest forum would have such a hard time attracting people. It's not like we don't have the room to talk about anything, but at the same time, people can't expect to find the same level of interest in their things as what they would find in forums with a more specific theme.

Re: How are we all again?

Right, but even though this is a general interest forum it isn't a one-size-fits-all type of forum. If this forum did have a specific range of topics it would attract a specific demographic, which is much easier to please than the world at large. Quality over quantity. Almost Smart initially catered to college kids and a few teenagers. The topics grew from the conversations about the things people in that age group enjoyed, from the pseudo-intellectual to the downright hilarious. Now there is no focus. Pleasing the world at large is going to be quite the task.

Ture, and it's difficult to get that demographic back since we've all grown up and don't really want to hear from the puney teenagers anymore. ;)

Which is why this forum needs to be able to grow with the changes... but unfortunately, without Weasel... We're just kinda stuck looking down Memory Lane.
