What happened to Pubrick and polkablues a few years ago when they stopped posting? They seem like such integral members. What brought them back?
Appealing to my ego will work every single time.
I've actually had two year-ish long hiatuses from this place, the first because I suddenly went from having constant internet access to having very intermittent internet access, and the second simply because I fell out of the habit of visiting. I found that unless I was logging on and checking in every day, I felt too diconnected from the community, and that disconnection was enough to make me stop visiting entirely.
But then I came back on a whim and I got adminned, and mod and I started photoshopping Brett Ratner into things and I haven't looked back since. Even running on fumes as the place has been lately, I love this site and the people in it too damn much.
And I wouldn't complain if Stefen, Pas, and GT decided to start posting again.
