    You might ask why is there nobody here anymore? As far as the other sub forums, I always have visited them, tried to add some content. Its good for the forum, helps build community. Honestly, the OC has grown stagnant, stale. I have mentioned it before. There needs to be a certain refresh rate and its lacking, the status quo won't cut it, people have a short attention spans when it comes to certain subjects. Variety, it is lacking, unless you count the predominance of schoolyard humor. The most popular thread in the OC is about what? That's right, bikes. Well I can read about that all over this forum, while many people just see that thread as a "good ole boys" club or elitist. That's what happens when a couple of handfuls of posters populate a sub-forum, it gives off the wrong message. Time to cast a wider net, step up the game. That or just shut this sub-forum down as it is no longer relevant. Would be a shame to see that happen, time to do something to turn it around me thinks cause this surely isn't working, the OC is on life support. Just my two centavos.

    So much down talk about OC from you D$. ..and yet you are still here, keeping a watchful eye over things. The overseer.

    Every time you say this, you put another black eye on OC. There's plenty of new things going on here and plenty of old things too, it's not "stagnant". There's gonna be down times in activity when some of us have responsibilities to see to in order to have free time later to enjoy this later. Not everyone can be here all at the same time.

    Frankly, I'm shocked that you would want this to ever end, which is basically what your words above are saying.

    And I can only hope that what you really meant is that you miss some of the now dead personalities we once had here.

    You miss the entire point of the post. The OC does well enough acquiring black eyes on its own and if it cant stand some constructive criticism then there is no saving it. Let the decline continue.

    "constructive criticism" on an ongoing basis is degrading, not "constructive". That's the point of my post.

    People get busy. People move on. People start over. It's a circle of internet life. It does no good to read more into it than that.

    Two sayings that gets me through tough times is "I do the best I can with what I have" and "I never did mind about the little things".

    I don't know that I would call the trading of NSFW gifs "real talent". BTW, got any good NSFW gifs? Or a meme. I'm jonesing for a good meme.

    I've been building so much 'community' in the SoCal forum that I really need a break. Too goddam depressing there.

    Nope... I stay here when on the interwebs.. I like it here. When I am done with the OC for the time being, I turn off the computer and go outside and play.

    Did Tones fall off the underside of the planet or something?
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    I predict that as winter keeps rolling in closer, the forum activity will pick up.

    Please don't say that "w" word too loudly. Mother nature is waiting for an invitation to pounce. On the other hand, the ski hill near town opens this weekend

    I'll raise you chicken slowly smoked with a mixture of hickory and apple wood. We are talking about fall-off-the-bone tenderness
