Well, this place goes in cycles. <br><br>It might be a ghost town now, but in a couple months, it'll pick back up. <br><br>I know right now, I've been busy, MattMac112 is on vacation and people are just doing other things. It's easy to burn out on message boards from time to time...so I just log out, push away from the table and go outside. <br><br>People will be back though. <br><br>As for whether or not new people feel welcome, I think it depends on how they introduce themselves. People are very suspicious of anyone shilling for anything. So if somebody drops in and says "Hey...how are you...this is a cool place....buy my fonts...or come to my website...or sign up for a free iPod..." they can expect to be ridiculed and run out of here. <br><br>

I know in my own case, I've been branching out onto other specialty boards instead of trying to talk about every single subject in this place...<br><br>I go to a sports board to talk about baseball, gaming forum to yak about games, etc, etc...<br><br>This place has become more of a hangout for coming back and sharing with what I've been doing outside of MM.... Kinda like when you come home from work and talk about your day with your significant other....<br> <br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>
