I'm not sure why I can't stop. But I just gotta rag on you.

I'm just depressed with how little people are trying. I know you are, and a few others, but **** me it's dead in here. Even I couldn't be bothered to update like a bastard as I usually do, though I am writing reviews of shark movies. I just feel, sort of in general, if nobody's gonna bother why should I? I had to force myself to even write what I did.

It shows. It's a shame honestly. Not sure why people aren't putting any effort into their journals, yet they complain that there's literally no discussion going on in the forum.

Hey, it's the start of the year, people are busy. Give it time, man. Journals don't seem quite as popular as they were back then either but especially right now it seems like about half the forum is busy off doing some other stuff.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

Trollheart, I just wanted to say thanks for all your dedication - every summary feature has been a joy to read. And I share your anxiety about the lack of activity on the site. But I'm going to stick with it and keep writing as long as I can.

And I'm going to make an effort to be more active in other areas of the forum as well. In fact... heading over to the film thread presently with some newfound excitement.

But man - thank you for all you contribute to the site.

Do you bother with those albums I post? Most of those albums are a click away.

Thanks for all your support guys and yes I'll try to put in a better effort for this week's update. I'm also awaiting a final outcome on my aunt, who is 99 and very sick in hospital. She's been like a second mother to me and my siblings so it's not just like it'll be another aunt gone; that in itself makes it hard to care too much about what are in the end pretty trivial matters, and why the tone is so depressed and listless.

I do appreciate the work everyone who posts already does, and I know it's unlikely we'll ever get back to the glory days, but when there are so few individuals posting - no matter how well you all do it - it makes it a little harder to pick out posts for things like "Post of the Week" etc. I suppose a few more comments here would help. Like just now there have been a few but only because my update wasn't up to my usual standard. On the last few though virtually nothing in reply, and then of course it makes you wonder if it's worth even bothering?

I do however want to avoid going the other direction and making the update so varied that people tend to focus on the features/humour in my writing rather than the actual content of the journals being discussed (I know, Batty: what humour?) so it's hard to strike the right balance. I did one a year or more back where Homer took over the writing, and though I thought it was good, it did tend to divert attention away from the content, so I stopped doing that. What, for instance, do you guys think of the Journal Graveyard section? Are there older sections you'd like to see me bring back, or any ideas for new ones? I guess we could all do with a bit of support now and then.

Sorry to whine: I'll hope to do better.
Thanks guys.
