This is insane.

When I was last here almost a year ago this place was absolutely teeming with life. Now, it is a deserted wasteland.

What happened?

Reminds me of that Trey Parker and Matt Stone song.

What happened?


If you think about it, it was only a matter of time. Before the days of social networking site, msg brds were the online social networking. I bet the people that were posting here all the time have starting to spend more time on these kinda sites. Maybe they were no longer interested in drama, obscure youtube clips, long unrelated diatribes, or whatever the DS social was bringing.

DS is harm reduction 1st, social site 2nd, which I have no problem with. But someone needs to be here before either of those things can happen.

To be honest.. I expect things to pick up once the site redesign is done. We are looking into better media base as well now that attention is starting to return to domestic issues.. although the war(s) are still holding quite a bit of focus for folks.

What happened was that ongoing drama ensued, and we subsequently lost some key contributors to the board. Things got slow, a lot of us continued to check in, but then I think a lot of us also ended up just kind of lurking - posting now and then, but nothing much, really.

After a while, it just fizzled out to nada ...........

I MISS THE OLD CREW! We had some good times!

Bry, I like the optimism ~ it would be great to have some action going on here at DS again!

I'll try to check in and actually post again ... hopefully we'll see some of the old familiar crowd and also some cool new faces around.

Hope all's well with everybody

Well, we just got done with the board of directors meeting.

Lets just say that we have a lot of changes in store.

A lot. And soon!

Trin is still around by the way. She's a photographer and graphic artist living in Colorado.

Ravey occasionally still tries to come on the board and stir up stuff.

So,

Did you all know we were in the midst of a HUMONGOUS site redesign?
