Hi, Oldtimer. I joined March 10, 2008, so I am close behind you. I remember so well abqwriter, Elibet, James Ritchie, Karen Rankowitz, and many others. Those were the halcyon days of this forum, all right. I have learned so much over the past 9 years. Such a shame that WD no longer cares about us.

I do think Rob's new forum has a lot of potential, and I wish some of the other writers here would visit, become members, and post.

I agree, Warren. And, of course, it's not an "either/or" situation. I'm happily posting on both. :D

I am too, Oldtimer. I like Rob's new forum a lot, but I continue to post here as well.

Don't you hate it when you go to look something up and then you forget what you were going to look up?
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.

This is a sad, sad day. I have just read on my Facebook page that our loved, respected mod, PLS, passed away yesterday. He was such a good man and a real character, and he will be sorely missed.

I am sorry to hear that.
I knew he was sick. Did not realise his demise was so imminent.
So who is approving new posters now?
Or is this site going to go really quiet real soon now?

So very sorry to hear this. Paul was my very first online writing mentor, and I considered him not only a magnificent teacher, but also a great friend. We wasted many an hour talking about our gardens too, which I know annoyed many on here. Met him once in person (we live an hour and a half from each other), and he was exactly the same as he presented himself on here. Lovely man. Patient teacher. Wonderful friend. I will never forget him.
