We control the tone of the board.  the only way to make it more positive is to contribute :)

Yes.  

 

I contribute but I am not as engaged as I used to be because of the tone.  I suppose I could focus on the 'changing of the tone'?  :lol:    Rather than just not contribute as much, which is what I've chosen lately....

Seriously though, I've been here since 99 and to me I've observed a combination of things.

 

One, us people here since 99 are 14 years older. A lot of things happen in 14 years that can affect ones time on the internet. Work, family, etc.

 

The other thing, and I know its the most beaten horse around but it is the truth, is all of these separate forums.

Whatever, I get the politics one (not really) and the sex one (whatever), but parenting and all the others. Well thats why then on the true Family Board we need to make up drama because otherwise there would be nothing to talk about.

 

There, you asked.

I still love this place. so much family here.

 

The friendships that have been cultivated... the ability to stay in touch throughout the year...Royal's lists, boardie inside jokes, friends who come for support and the ability to offer it, interesting political discussions.. I've learned a ton from people here and grown to love a bunch of you, a whole lot.

I contribute but I am not as engaged as I used to be because of the tone.  I suppose I could focus on the 'changing of the tone'?  :lol:    Rather than just not contribute as much, which is what I've chosen lately....

 

:clapping:

 

Karen, you put it perfectly for me.  what makes me less likely to contribute to any "changing of the tone" is that lately (but not just since the weather got cold when everyone's spirits seem to plummet anyway) it seems like so many people here are in opposition, constantly challenging each other's posts no matter how banal the point made and countered might be.  

 

that's not fun for me, so i read a lot less and thus, post a lot less.   sure, i could put a LOT of people on block, but since some of those who are most argumentative and kill the fun for me here are also people who i actually like in real life...i'm less inclined to do that.  

 

it used to feel a lot more like a community of friends drawn together here, when they couldn't be together in person.  lately it feels more like family...and i don't mean that in a flattering, feel-good sort of way :lol:

I love this community, I've met a tremendous amount of incredibly great people over the last two years since I joined, it's still fresh for me and all of that, but lately I am just really pulled in a bunch of different directions in my day-to-day life and I don't always have the energy to put into posts, I'm sure I'm not the only one...  my posting frequency ebbs and flows :)

I'm sure it will pick up a bit again come festie season.

I'll second that. 

 

I check in several times a day when I have a few minutes to spare but never really have the time to post unless I'm in my room which is only a couple of nights a week.  Really wish we had a "like button" so I could show my like when I don't have time to post.
