It's been dead for quite some time now but it just don't know it yet. You know that flapping a chicken does after it's head has been cut off? This is what it looks like in forum form.

I haven't been here for over a year and I cannot believe how dead it is. Where is everyone?

There was a dispute of some kind...I was not around, so don't know all the details. A faction split off and formed their own forum. All us old timers to the thread kind of faded away to other places...not because of the dispute but I guess because we had discussed all we had intended to discuss and the newer crowd weren't really so much into SS as they were into social chit chat and arguing. Not my bag nor is a comfort zone for most of the old retainers that were here in the beginning.

I guess we had liked discussion of actually doing SS things instead of recipes, talking about doing SS one day over the rainbow, prepping for zombie takeovers or SHTF scenerios, etc. :idunno

Well that is a shame. I rather enjoyed to hear about everyone's daily self sufficient lives. Always a good place to get advice from too. Maybe the administrators that be should put more effort into advertising this forum. Being a prepper and being self sufficient is the new big thing. :thumbsup

There are times when this forum is busy, other times when it isn't. It's like any other forum that I'm on as far as I can tell. (Except one that was pretty much killed by the administrator.) It goes thru cycles. Right now, it's at a low, but that doesn't mean it won't pick up again. Right now I think a lot of people are still busy prepping for the colder months and just don't have time to get on and post a lot, or are too tired. Plus WBF is w/out a computer right now, so she's not posting much.

Exactly.
Some of us have been really busy actually living the self sufficient life. Sure beats going around trying to cause hate and discontent.

Not religious, but...

Amen...hubby and Marianne (hey lady :frow )!

It's a busy time of the year, just like spring is. Add the upcoming holidays and I know I'm not around here that much, as in posting. I do check in regularly, even though I may not log in! ;)



Vollan,

One heck of a way to introduce yourself as being new to the forum! :th


With that, I am closing this to keep some of us out of trouble, myself included! ;)

This is in review and will be opened back up if the Staff deems fit.
