23:20 - MetalDoomMaster This is definitely my favorite and most frequented site. I may not be the most active member but I do love the site and will keep lurking forever. I'm sure there are a shitload of others doing the same as I am.
23:15 - yvesson Hej, well but I'll try and live a bit longer, and I'll try and save things I think are good.
23:00 - SSM Everything will end, we all die. No big deal. love MS btw.
22:28 - yvesson Hej, well you knwo, there is fessebouc and gogole, and some other sites I barely know, and most other old forums/sites lost their members, and there aren't much new people either.
21:42 - Apothecary ...but one thing I do know is that it's not as if the site is crumbling under our feet. The loyal have stayed loyal, and those genuinely interested in what MS is all about will stick around. And maybe that's all it takes
21:42 - Apothecary People talk often about how "the forums are dead" and "there aren't as many people as there used to be," and I don't really care tbh. Been here since 2010, so I don't even know if I lived through The Glory Days...
