Is There Logic Here?

I've often wondered what the impetus might be for changing one's nick. It would seem that whatever the logic may be, it would be made invalid by advertising its history...

Just curious; not critical!

2 times I changed because I

2 times I changed because I forgot the password. the others were all vor varried reasons. Now I am 18 I kinda don't care anymore.

But thank you still

Yeah...

...your observation is quite depressingly accurate!

The number of regular participants on Oasis right now is unusually low... Vacations and summer camps (for denizens of the northern hemisphere) are the primary culprits.

And then, a few of our cherished members are temporarily absent for less happy reasons. But time is a great healer, and I'm quite confident that activity will become more frenetic once schools resume in a few weeks...

Wait out the doldrums... You may have noticed that you've been instrumental in stimulating some of the slackers :)

jeff's picture

Well...

There is also a changeover at school times, so some of the active posters now will go dormant, and some people we haven't been hearing from will return.

My take is that Oasis always has the right number of people on it at any given time. Otherwise, it sounds like we're somehow denigrating the people who are here writing, sharing, helping, and supporting by thinking instead of those who are not.

And there are ALWAYS people who get banned by parents from visiting, etc., so that is also part of the lifecycle here. I'm just happy when I don't get angry parent e-mails at the same time, which does happen.
