I'm still around - I guess my posting frequency has been down lately, but I'm still reading dailyJBE wrote:Here's a few I haven't seen in ages..
I know I've even had a few times that I've missed the better part of a couple months without having time to post. Think over the 8 years I've been on this forum (got my first delica in summer '99 and found the site a year later to find info on what I just bought) I've seen it come down to less than 5% of us are active on a "daily" basis (post every day or so)... with only a few of us on constantly. My first post was in the forum's 800th thread and I got a personal welcome from sal.clovisc wrote:i think that it's pretty normal for people to phase in and out of using the forum over extended periods of time.
the times that i went on extended hiatus were all periods in my life where i was transitioning between jobs. with the economy and job market the way it is, it may not be a surprise that a higher number of people are focusing on other areas of their life right now.
still, i'd like to see some of these folks stop by and say hi...
I've noticed a few come and go, and I understand how this happens, sometimes life gets a little busy or interests change. I only wish the best to those who have have been here and moved on. I know I haven't become a deep part of the "family" here (Even though I have been here quite a while), but I was still honored to get a friend request by the great Dr. Snubnose.Dr. Snubnose wrote:Every once in a while you see a thread titled Has anybody heard from badada...So and So is Missing in Action...Does anybody know what happened to X Y and Z. There are so many former members that are MIA and have contributed so much to this forum in the past and their presence here is missed. The new upgrades are fantastic and I tried a little experiment. I started to request a befriend notice from some of my past knifebros and it seems to be working....I guess they are getting my request via e-mail from the good people of Spyderco. I'm hoping to draw some of these people back to the Spyderco Forum. So some of you old timers here, contact and befriend an old member who you have missed here on the forum. It lets let know that they are missed and we valued their contributions and at the same time builds strength to the forum. What do you say...Befriend an old forum member today, we will all benefit from their input and friendship.....Doc

I've been dropping in whenever I can to see what's going on, perhaps hook up with an old buddy or say a thing or two. Since moving on to exploring handmade knives and other high end production stuff, I'd say that I am purty contented with my stash of Spydies that I regularly update. Now, I keep what I use and seeing as it is, there are some new bugs that I can't wait to sink my claws into!
As for the rest, I regularly see Craig @ CKE's work on the USN. He's an awesome person and a great knifemaker. While we are on this topic, I would like to give a shout out to :
