I joined this forum to bore others to death ... then I thought ... how about pushing my own agenda, and not allowing others to differ from me ... maybe I should make sarcastic remarks and always shout that I am being belittled and others are being given preferential treatment while I am being handled unfairly.
The reason I am still on the forum:
I joined the forum about 2 years ago and have in that short time made a lot of friends that continue to be very good friends even if they are not on the forum anymore. I have realized in the short time I was here that this is not an average day to day forum. No, this forum has a lot of emotion. It sort of comes alive at times and it can consume you whole.
When most of my friends left the forum I was very sad. My biggest worry was that I was not going to enjoy the forum anymore. I then realized that it was not friends that drew me to this place, but rather my love for nature and in particular the Kruger National Park.
My posting has significantaly dropped the last couple of months as I personally feel that a lot of fun was removed from the forum. There is too much seriousness on the forum atm that it puts me off a bit and I quote from a very popular movie "Why so serious my son" (Joker voice).
I still read all the posts on a day to day basis, and will voice my opinion where I feel I can contribute.
I love this forum, but some days it can bring some sadness too as I miss some of my friends dearly, even though we still see each other in real life, it was still the gathering place for us where we used to laugh.
The forum is bigger than any person, and will continue to thrive and produce interesting topics, conversations and debates. I will always hang around and watch in the shadow's, waiting for that moment to pounce on an unsuspecting victim
As far as the Mods go. I believe that you have the best intentions at heart for this forum. You do hard work in the background, and I salute you for that, but please do not forget what made this forum into what it is today.
