I don't see why this becomes a big concern every now and then; I really don't see the Citadel going anywhere (in terms of non-existence, that is), unless Rob gets tired of paying for it during the slow periods.
This place hit a peak, and has since had its up and down swells. Part of the problem, and I've changed my opinion on this, is that we became too obsessed with sticking everything into bigassed massive topics.
I like it here, goddammit. I like you guys, I regret the ones that have left, but that was their choice I guess. I happen to enjoy misanthropic collections of humanity, especially when their nicks include bags of posteriors, people that aren't that important, and, well... Rob.
Lookee here. This forum was birthed as, and continues to be something of a common room for our kind. Like any group of people that hang around each other a lot, there are lulls in the conversation. And there's the group of people in the corner that talk, and talk, and TALK, about the same thing, until you want to spray them with something vaguely acidic.
We need to try and start creating more Ministry topics. Given the right start, those usually generate a fair amount of talkiness.
Dammit, I'll keep this place alive by myself if I have to. Anybody wanna write the script to a comic to do with the half-life mod?
