    Sadly, it is human nature to idolise something and then loose interest.Especially in Showbiz/Media.There is nothing wrong with MC, just that some of the members have now got the feeling that they have done it all.Most people's tastes continually change and they get bored and seek new things.I, however, am
    a life long Muppet fan and will not tire of them.

    Hey everyone,

    I thought I'd just let you all know that I will be unable to post on hear very often. *sigh* I know, I was really looking forward to being around the forums more this year. But, as things have turned out, I have been given a job (Yay!). So with that and University and other responsibilities I have decided to say pseudo-farewell. I won't be completely gone, I will still pop up now and then I'm sure. Can't get rid of me that easily :D

    That is all.

    Sad face! Well, congrats about the job. Hope to see you around a little ever now and then!

    At some point late April, I wont have internet access on my computer, due to the fact I have been living on campus and our house computer is fried.

    I will still make occasional posts from my cell phone, but since its a cell phone, they will be short posts, possibly with a lot of typos and odd capitalization/punctuation.

    I'm posting this now because I'm not sure what going on. School officially ends May 1st, but I dont know if I am going home during exam time or what. So I thought I'd give a warning now

    I said about two weeks ago how wonderful Comcast has been to work with (BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA)... so, it looks like I'll STILL be out of action for a while... maybe even a couple of more weeks or so... :smirk:

    Man, cable companies are a b! + c# aren't they?

    I just read about the MC revival and I am in. Here is my e-mail. Matthew03291980@gmail.com Tell me what I can do to help. Just put MC in the subject line.

    Been here 13 years, yet strangely or not its still small...I guess its good a lot of people have the enthusiasm/writing of 15 year olds, which isnt bad. I just remember when MC was a more mature older crowd, but I guess a lot of them jumped ship or don't post anymore. I miss Luke and other vet posters, though Im glad to see DW back regularly and Frogboy Jamie still around. But yeah there was something about MC 98-02 that was pretty intense...trust me guys, its wayyy laid back now:)

    Trippy running into people here my age. Most forums Im on, everyone seems 17-23. Though most often, people in real life mistake me for being in my early 20's. Instigating conversation can be good though. I begin my stint commanding two hours of a prime time college radio broadcast next saturday, and find stuff like that helps gets me further out of the shy acreage i once dwelled in.

    Do you think we are going to have a big jump on members or just old members coming back with the new movie coming out?

    I hope so! Im hoping for a flood of new members and old friends coming back!

    I have plenty of muse, it's just that readership is down. FR fics are some of the few I ever finished and yet on FF.net I'm lucky if anyone even looks at them...
    About age and feeling 15 or something, I am 28 but the thing is I think muppets are one of those things that you need a mix of being forever young and being old enough to get the older vibe of the time the muppets were made. In terms of fraggles I was raised by the hippie genration so I just sort of get it (not that others can't just you know)...

    I think it goes without saying that a forum would change, I don't think if it was a serious 'OMG you're here and you don't know who played this muppet in 79'? Begone!' place I would be coming back as often as I do..

    I'm not leaving just yet. I always threaten to stop doing stuff when I hit a low, but then only manage to come back a day later...

    I almost stopped doing YTP because of low views, and almost quite my DA account for the same reason... but 5 YTP's and 50 something fan arts later I'm still managing to do something.

    I am sick of the negativity on the internet. I left 2 other sites YEARS ago due to negative fans and BAD conduct by members who were NEVER banned because they're friends of the mods...

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Yeah, hey, that sucks.

    I've been there/done that... like years ago, a bunch of morons at another forum ganged up on me, and basically harassed me to no end... then I was the one who got banned for instigating trouble when I was the victim.

    I didnt want to say anything, but since its been brought up, I have also considered leqaving due to the negativity of people, and whats worse is I'm contributing to it. I'm not as...I dunno. Light hearted as I used to be and very serious.

    I know I say that I will leave but always come back. But I think its time for another long break from MC. Negativity is contageous. One person is miserable, making other people bitter about that person being negative and its just a chain reaction from there...

    Maybe I'm missing something, usually, it's easy to sense the hostile environment that plagues MC: it happened back in 2008 (that was the beginning of the end of MC), it happened in 2010, but ironically, I haven't seen it happen now... but then again, I think so many people around here are still upset about the new forum, that it's making for an unpleasant posting experience for a lot of people.

    But I digress, I understand the need to leave when things begin to go south, I've done that a few times in the past myself (and a couple of times, it actually wasn't by choice); I guess I just don't want to see more of the "old timers" disappear again. After all, part of what made MC MC is the people, and there's a lot of those people who made MC MC who have left some time ago, and either haven't returned at all, or only pop in from time to time... I've actually been wondering whatever became of people like Dan (the Strawberry Man), Daniel (and his LOVE EVERYBODY sermons), Caroline, Vibs, among others who have seemingly dropped off the face of the earth.
