It seem so quite here now ?? The siggy request bit is so so quite .. where are the days when it would be buzzing with request .. now it seems to be only 1 or 2 a day if that ??
Are people just not requesting now .. or is facebook to blame ???

Don't know what happened...I was away for a long while too. I am not on everyone's FB so I really don't know, but when I came back things had died down ALOT.

Thats a shame .. I thought facebook would be to blame. I guess because on there everything is instant regarding posts etc. Its oddly eerie here where it is so so quiet

a lot of JM groups have facebook groups now.... if JM had an app, I think that things would pick up again.

I think there is no page because it would encourage even less JM activity. If you could make a siggy requet on FB then we would probably get hardly any on JM. And if on JM we had a Maker's FB page the Lounge would be even more of a ghost town than it is already. Do you know what I mean?

It has been quiet. And I feel that as a host I should be doing more, but it is hard to find the time. I love SRU and want it to thrive. Sometimes I think I should resign from hosting so that one of our more active members can host, but where there was a host opening no one filled it for a looooong time until I did. And I do most of the polls and everything. And I enjoy that. But it would be great to have help posting fun threads and such in the Lounge.

I would like to see the siggy board more active again as well. Right now we are adjusting to our new lives with the kids in school. Maybe I can plan a little time everyday/almost everyday to get on the computer now that it is just Zane and I at home. For more threads and such in the Lounge.

I'm very open to thoughts/ideas on what makers would like to have happen to keep the board more fun for us. I will post a September Monthly Siggy Challenge. We haven't had a MSC in a bit. We stopped because there were little to no entries in the last couple. But that is mainly because there aren't many makers.

I am crummy and I know it Work has taken over my life sadly. I want to be more active, really I do. We are hiring 3 new people next week. Hopefully they stick and I can work a normal work week.

Even though been back a short time .. but I miss how busy this place used to be. I used to remember responding to like 3-6 requests a day!! I'm trying to be more active as I really enjoy siggy making. Anything I can do let me know!

You're awfully sweet to me, Sharon!! I was trying when I initially got back, but when there was often only a couple of people responding, and one host I don't even know...I just gave up, I think. It's just not FUN when it's not active/interactive!! I like to chat...and waiting days for responses OR people only responding to certain people, it just turns me off completely. I love my active homies...:-)

PS Just joking about the SRU page...or I should say that I didn't mean as a REQUESTS page...I meant more as a chat/catch up page. I wouldn't do requests as I only add people as "friends" that I feel like I know...I am not a volume kinda girl ;-)
