There where some awesome topics "back in the day"
To be honest, I frequent so many forums - and my day job really murders my time, I have other interests now - although computers are an integral part of my life I cannot seem to find the time to invest here anymore sadly

I've also moved to other forums but the pic of the day thread was always something that kept bringing me back. Things does change though.

I totally concur...I frequent one other forum mainly, and it is 10 times more active...It almost feels like a hive it is so active...

But this is the forum where it all began for me...So I do pop in every day...albeit briefly...

I Admin one site, mod another and then there is Carbonite as the top three forums I frequent.

This one will definitely move up if/when our new Editor follows through with forum mentions.

Here's hoping!

yip... after he (in my opinion) destroyed something that was good is all the forumite's lives...

you don't break something and then leave it broken... and if you can't take the repercussions of one's actions then you have to suffer the consequences...
