Carol, I feel the same as you do. I have been here since 2008, and back then we really had some great discussions and arguments about writing. But most of those members appear to be gone. I agree that the spam and log-in problems did help decimate our ranks.

Not sure why anyone would move on because they have been published. That's exactly when they should stick around, to help others.

I'm glad some of the regulars such as James A. Ritchie, Shadowwalker, and others are still here and still offering good advice. I intend to stay, but I do wish things would pick up a bit.

I will finish up a story tomorrow.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.

I've been here since 2006, and then and for a few years after, this forum was crazy busy. There was so much conversation and so much talent and I learned so much from everyone. Since around 2009 it definitely dwindled down some - life, health issues, other unknown things from some posters - but I remember looking forward to visiting the forum after a day at work. And the weekends were so busy too! It was such a lively place to share stories and life.

I put writing aside for a few years after that and am recently trying to get back to it, but this and even the "other" writing forums have changed. Maybe some just get tired of giving advice all the time and want some input, maybe they follow blogs or critique groups or have real life conversations, idk. Times change, people grow and move on and the world keeps turning. Not saying this place can't be similar to that time, but people have to actually post regularly.

Who still uses Webs.com? I heard that it's going down the tubes. I haven't had much problems, but is it time to move to another web hosting site?

Hi everyone. It's been a while. Unfortunately, I can't think of anything else to say.

Hi, updog. Did you escape the ice storms? Nothing but rain here in Topeka.

I have an opinion question to ask everyone: I am thinking about moving my site from Webs.com to a better service like Wordpress or Wix, should I do that now that Webs seems to going down the tubes. (Well, I haven't really had any problems except for today with the error of loading my files and making me log back in.)
