    Are there periods of time when you're not very active, if at all active, on this forum?
    Then at some point you visit the forum at least once a day, perhaps more often?

    I started to think about this after I visited the forum yesterday and stayed for a while, posted something and thought that I haven't been here much lately. Some people here may be sad that I "returned", but who knows for how long. :)

    I leave for chunks at a time when the politicizing or arguing gets to me.

    I'm on here when I'm at work (Tuesday - Friday, night shift), but rarely if ever on the weekend. Likewise, I was on a comic book forum once that I fell out of because work computers started randomly blocking it after a security update.

    Sometimes I'm absent for weeks or even months at a time, yet people in certain areas of the board expect me to know exactly who said what, where, and when during all that time. The 'net is a big place, and this forum isn't one of my everyday hangouts (I reserve that for gaming forums).

    That said, there are times of the year when I'm here often, if one of my favorite shows' current season is on TV.

    I'm coming up on my 18th anniversary of being a member of this board, and was a lurker for a couple of years before that. As life gets busy, I can go months without checking in. Then, when things slow down, or I run into something that I need to check out, I come back.

    I lurk mostly, but I try to have a look at some of the topics every other day and if I have something to contribute (not very often since I'm not really very interested in the current Trek shows), I do so. I have an entire Trek board to look after as an admin tho, so that one gets more of my attention. ;)

    I used to be really active and now I just pop in occasionally to see if there’s something I want to add to a conversation. I mostly lurk now.

    I'm usually here every day, but tend to lurk more than post.

    I visit most days and read some posts but I have only posted 12 times this year. I really should try and post some more.

    Yeah. I was away for a year or so at one point. I didn't make a decision to leave, but my life went kind of crazy for a while...

    I've been here forever, longer than my join date*. I've posted almost nothing during the last five (!) years. So, yes.

    * which is ~20 years ago.

    I've been here since 2001, but I have been spending less time here lately. I don't watch the current Star Trek shows and I watch very little tv in general because it is very boring on the whole, so there isn't as much to talk about. Years ago, we'd talk about shows like Lost as they were playing. Also, since I retired, I'm busy doing lots of other stuff.

    Mostly. To be honest, for every thread, it feels I have discussed something similar in the past. It *has* been a lot of years.

    Sure, I've been gone for months on end and come back several times over my long time on here.
