Where's andsome

Recommended Posts

I don't think he has posted anything this month.

 

Has he made a New Year's Resolution to have a WF free month?

Dunno, his account shows he's looking in just not saying anything. My first thought was maybe his keyboards busted and he's too cheap to buy a new one but he posted a comment on over fifties forum on Wednesday, so that's not the answer.

Maybe we were nasty about Mahler once too often and he's got the hump.

Andsome is a friendly and placid fella who is most unlikely to take umbrage at us teasing him about Mahler.

 

Let's face it we have been doing it for 15 years and he is accustomed to it.

I seem to remember he was due to see a specialist with a view to hopefully getting his driving license back, maybe it didn't go as planned. That would certainly piss me off big time.

Message from the man his self,

So watch this space.

I have just done as you asked and stared at this space for 10 minutes and nothing happened.

 

You are a cad and a trickster sir.

True but at the moment not relevant as I am not responsible for the uncharacteristic silence from the man in question. I am also not responsible for the current trend of mute visitations from forum staff and other occasional members who have given up posting here.

Like you I've tried seeding the forum with a variety of posts in the hope of eliciting a reaction of some kind, with Gandalphs passing things have gone from bad to worse and getting a response of any kind is now near impossible. Sad to say but I think it's time for somebody to change it to "Windowsforum Gone But Not Forgotten".

There was a Belatucadrus absence from October 8th to November 28.

 

My 'silent' visits are to try and keep a check that postings do not contravene the law or common decency.

There's not a lot of either about,... sadly.

Just shows how well we are doing our job. I also delete/ban several people a week who are trying either to sell things or subvert the forum in other ways.

True and if things don't pick up there'll be another only much much longer.

I assumed as much, now me I lack the remaining staff members stoic dedication to duty and if it as it increasingly appears I'm just wasting my time and yours I'll call it a day.

The fundamental problem with the forum - and other forums dedicated to computer problems - is that since Microsoft have improved their product(s) so much there is not nearly as much difficulty experienced by users, thus less forum activity. Look at what has happened to PC Advisor (and its forum).

 

It is not only computer forums, though. Forums dedicated to a whole range of other subjects are feeling the effects of more modern communication systems, collectively called social media. Personally, I don't get on with systems like Facebook and whatever the other similar things are. They are too immediate for my ageing brain and I think that may apply to some other members here who do still make an, albeit infrequent, appearance.
