i often wonder what all the guys i used to speak with are up to these days and what they went on to do in life
plus many others
i just dont know when we all decided to move on lol yes i guess social media/faceboock etc has a part in this,
i used to visit here 2 to 3 times a day once over and there was always something cooking
Some are still around, in different capacities. Some that you mentioned were more collectors, and have simply moved on to other things. Most of the older inactive staff were retired. Though not very active, Nightstorm is still on the staff here, and makes an occasional appearance.
Yes, there are a lot fewer staff than had been in years past. There isn’t nearly the level of nonsense as there was years ago. Most of the agitators are out of the hobby, for the most part. And as Eastern pointed out, many probably check in to read what’s going on, but don’t need to log in to do so.
Like most people you mentioned, even some staff members have “phased out” of the hobby. It happens. Not all on the staff were builders, some were just collectors - C-3P0, and Luke (#2) come to mind. People (staff and members) have lives outside of the hobby, and sometimes, a lot of people just move on. They have their one (or more) sabers, are very happy, and just move on to other interests. That’s simply how it goes.
It’s not just here. most of the old forums have this “issue”, here, TCSS and the group that replaced JSSDC.
I have not been body-snatched
Once I hear back from those new probe droids we sent your way, all bets are off.
