Default Addiction beaten?

Anybody else finding themselves not spending as much time on here since Heresy got back online? I've found that while I will come on everyday, I'm not spending anywhere near the same amount of time I used to browsing. It's like I managed to ween myself off while the site was down.

Also, I can't quite put my name on it, but something seems to have changed, or is missing. But the place seems quite different to me since the reboot. Anybody else feeling anything similar?

It does feel like there's less people replying to threads, especially in the off-topic forum. I'm sure there's a few regulars missing as well, maybe like you they've weaned themselves off the addiction. Or just swapped coke for heroine and (I know it'd be heresy but...) are using other forums :O

I tend to log in, scrath through "new posts" and maybe pop in a quick comment and then log out again.
Nothings really changed for me in that sense as I'm more of a lurker, although as you say, there is something I can't quite put my finger on.....

I think we're caught in a bit of a vicious circle at the moment, not many people online meaning not much gets posted, meaning not much to respond to, not much reason to hang around, not many people online.

The site was down during a major release which is usually something that brings people in, even if its just to bitch and moan that their army got bent over by the new dex. Also the rumour mill has been tighter than a camel's arse in a sandstorm lately, apparently DA are next up after Xmas but other than that I couldn't tell you what is in the release, what new toys to expect or where DA's have been bent over, super charged, nerfed or M. Ward fluff raped.

Once the site has something to really get its teeth into things will pick up and either the missing will return or new people will come in, it's just down to the rest of us to make them feel welcome when they do. I mean seriously, I had a trawl round Dakka and Warseer while Heresy was down and both sites are fucking horrible (Dakka hate us for some reason?)

Stick with it and remember, when it comes to addictions, giving up is for quitters!

I am spending far less time on Heresy nowahdays, but thats mainly because I am rather busy with life at the moment, so I only jump in here for the news, to check if someone deserves a hammering and to post a random bullshit comment here and there.

But really, its that time of the year now, and people are all rather busy with their respective things.

I gave up the hobby. But I can't give up Heresy. Even if it is slow I'll still be here for a long time.

I have to say i have dropped off too, not too happy at some of the changes, loosing rep was a big blow, nearly 8000 posts and 4000 rep, thats like .5 rep per post average, for me that was a big kick in the teeth,for me rep told a story to anyone looking at my posts, it said "this guy has been around a while, hes posted alot of stuff and his rep shows his opinions and contribution to the forum are respected by other forum members"

Also the site was down a looooong time and more than once and because of hackers, now i dont know about other people but i really had to weigh up if coming back at all was a good idea, rationally i know hackers could strike anywhere at any time, but that doesnt stop people feeling paranoid about if there information is safe.

I also suggested that we mail out to heresys membership and let them know we are here and back online.
