I don't think you are at all. Truth be known, you're right.
There are a lot more people now then there used to be, so many that the forums are super active, so many it almost feels like a pressing crowd.
People are lost sight of when they become less active, which is the reason I created the It's Been a While Since I've Seen _____ topic. In all the business of role plays and conversation, we need to be aware of silent people. Hopefully, the topic will encourage the forums to do just that.
By the way, do you have a story role play here? Can you give me a link to it if you do?
