I miss the folks who are gone also, and a lot of them seem to have left once the OT forum was deleted. It was a place to go and chat with friends.

Ravlery is too big for me, but there are a couple of OT areas that I like.

I'm glad to hear this. My time here has dropped off a bit partly because I'm trying to cut down on my online time in general to pay more attention to my household responsibilities, but partly because I have another forum I go to for "general conversation," and now it's harder to find the knitting topics among the OT conversations. I don't know how dividing those boards affects price/bandwidth usaage and all that--we should all be very sensitive to those issues! But I spent more time here when they were separated!

I LOVE KH, and spend much more time here than on Ravelry for the reasons others have's just a cozier place, and even though I've never been very active here, I'm always welcomed, and I appreciate that!

I too have noticed her absence and wondered what happened.

When I joined, there were many people from the area where I live who posted regularly.
I'm not seeing those names here either now.

I know I don't participate much in my other hobby message boards I've been on for 10+ years,
and people have dropped out of sight over the years from all the boards.

I guess sometimes, life just marches on.

I too would prefer that OT have its' own place and not joined with the General Knitting board. I was wondering if maybe How To and Pattern Questions could be joined since they are very similar. Then that would free up a section for the OT again.

I understand too that this time of year may have a lot to do with the lack of traffic and comments posted.

The fact that post to Sells and Trades, etc. have fallen off a lot may be because of the bad economy.

When on this site, I feel more like a part of a family of knitters. Ravelry is a great site, but I get lost in the forum and it is very hard for me to go back to a post I read or posted to in the fast.

I hope the decline here will not in anyway harm the life expectancy of this website. I have looked through many sites looking for a second one to have as a kind of back up, but so far none compare or have the appeal that this site does.

The ones that maintain and keep this site up and going do a great job. THANKS GUYS/GALS!

I must admit I too visit less since the OT thread was removed...This summer has definitely been a busy one and I haven't knit a thing since the kids have been on summer vacation, but when I do check the forum I just get too overwhelmed trying to find OT topics among the gen knitting topics. Maybe start a poll to find out which forums members visit most and which ones they wouldn't miss and re-arrange from there??
