I'm outta here. I'll be back when WD shows they care enough about those of us who buy their books and magazine to do something about the forum. I'm also through buying anything from WD until then.

I'm right behind you.

James, I'll look for you around that other board you frequent. Your advice has been priceless to me over the 5 years I've been here. In fact, I've pinned some of my favorite James A. Ritchie quotes to the wall above my desk for inspiration. So thanks.

Maia, I'll keep your email address close. Hope we meet again.

I'm starting to think that WD wants to move away from forums altogether. If they killed it outright like the other there'd be backlash—this way it just peters out until no one cares anymore.

And thereby hangs a tale! Do I infer that this forum has seen better days in times of yore?

I used to lurk on this forum in years past when it used to be active and valuable. A few years have past and I decided to take writing seriously - with gusto! But, since I've joined, this board has been dead. Today I'm responding to a few threads to see if anyone actually responds or cares. Whatever the reason for it, WD Forums do indeed seem to be dead. That's a shame. The most popular forum for writers out there is one that I refuse to join. It's pretentious and filled with so much bad advice and hypocrisy that I'd have trouble holding my tongue, resulting in a ban anyway.

Did you use another name when you 'lurked', Fictional Chef? You say, "since I've joined" but that was only a week ago, hardly long enough (I would think) to assess the situation. Please will you give us more time? How about introducing some topics we can discuss and so revive this flagging outpost? We certainly need more contributors, rather than lurkers. Are you game? :)
