Default Is it me or has this site died

I mean no sign of hunter, no new products, the last product out was rather unimaginative and no creative spark here. Even I'm at the stage why I wonder why I come here anymore....

This is still the premier gather spot for Traveller devotees on the net. Lots of posts. Lots of activity.

I sure wouldn't say that it's "dead".

And, to be honest, I like this place a heck of a lot more than I do the Mongoose, GURPS, or Avenger forums. (Probably because those forums seem more edition-specific whereas this forum has proportional discussion of all Traveller editions.)

Ah, well, while this board is not exactly a fountain of creativity and has far
more discussions about old than about new Traveller ideas, I would not con-
sider it dead.
Just take a close look, and you can still find a couple of interesting ideas now
and then.

I've been having a ball here, but then, I'm a CT aficionado and I've got my dead-horse-kickin'-boots on to prove it.

It's not dead, but you have to consider it is the middle of summer, at least for those of us north of the equator, and that tends to be vacation time, outdoor time, etc.

I think there has been a decent amount of activity, considering.

It's had its dead moments. It's never really been an incredibly active forum compared to say something like one of the old classic computer gaming gaming forums, but there's discussion going on here.

I've never found it to be full of activity, but there've been times when the boards were hard to keep up with.

I suspect we're just in another lull.

Flamebait? You're not on the Avenger board by any chance, are you?

Cool Hoping to stay out of flame troubles....

But, ummm, it's you!

Of course like Jawillroy, I too have my 'I love CT and dead-horse-kicking' boots on too.

And I am trying to find new stuff and have, the Bilanidin threads rock! I am slowly learning the language of the Zira Sirka...slowllly.

Poke around, use the search function, or *gasp* start some new threads...

Just my thoughts.
