Maybe he'll be back.  This forum is like porn:  you just can't keep away for too long, no matter how you try.
He was back the first time he did this, I think he will return.

I've made the decision -- and it wasn't an easy decision to make -- to move on from the forum. I may come back to lurk every now and then. But not in the near future, and I don't intend to log in or make additional posts.

You can count on me being a roadgeek forever, even if I'm not here sharing the enjoyment.
It has been a real pleasure. It is tough to put into words how much I've enjoyed being able to talk -- and joke and argue -- with people with similar interests. I really thought I was pretty much alone until I found this place a few short years ago. So all I can really say is thank you! May 2019 have more posts than 2018, and so on for the duration!  :biggrin:


I was not expecting this.  :-o

Webny99, please consider coming back to the forum. There are many ways in which roadgeekery can be manifested and enjoyed, but you can always feel free to call this forum home.

I do understand the fascination with "special numbers" (such as the post count being exactly 2222). But my suggestion is to take screenshots or pictures of it, but then move on. It is cool, but we must keep moving forward. If circumstances call for taking a hiatus from the forum, and 2222 posts seems like a good point of closure to depart, I understand, but just remember that you can always come back. As interesting as it is, don't let a number deprive you of doing what you enjoy. You have been a great friend to me, and the whole roadgeek community is waiting here with open arms if you ever decide to come back. Please consider it, and I wish you the best of luck with whatever you decide to do.  :wave:

I'm actually worried about him. His behavior has just seemed so erratic. He always seemed like a nice guy but Idk.

Just come and go as you please. It's not like users are either active, or inactive. If you cannot commit to the forum, then just don't post.

We all have weird schedules, and other commitments. There's no expectation that you'll be active every day of every week.

Yeah, I have logged in several times since January, just to see the user-only boards and such.

I don't mind just browsing around, but once I start posting, my time spent on here snowballs very quickly.

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been around the forum as much recently. That's because a number of other priorities have been taking precedence, and the next 12 months, in particular, are going to be an extremely busy and critical time in my life. I am starting to realize now more than ever that time is a valuable, underappreciated resource that I simply can't afford to waste. Because of that, I am going to be moving on from the forum, and don't expect to be active here anymore.

Before I go, I do want to apologize again for my role in the loss of visibility of the forum stats page. Unfortunately, my efforts to get the page back were unsuccessful, but I really did try, and it seems there is simply no interest from the moderators/admin. I'm very sorry about what happened, but I know I've become a better and more mature person through this experience, and I hope that I can be forgiven for it and the page can be restored someday.

My time on the forum has been a unique and surprisingly rewarding experience (though not without its frustrations) that has meant more to me than I ever would have imagined, especially in the past ~15 months. So often, there are things that a roadgeek wants to talk about and argue about in depth that just don't fit in to casual conversation with friends or family, and this is a great outlet to do just that. So thank you, everyone, for the discussion we've enjoyed, arguments we've had, jokes we've made, and photos we've shared over the past few years. I'll certainly never forget it, and with the nearly 250 threads I've left behind, you probably won't either!  :biggrin:

I will also leave a live link to my travels in my signature, so if you're wondering what I'm up to, that might offer some clues. Rest assured I'll still be traveling as much as I can and keeping tabs on all the big road projects in my region and around the country! Cheers, and all the best!

I feel like this forum can be used and enjoyed in moderation. But if you're at the point where going cold turkey is the right choice for you, then go for it. Thanks for all the debates in the NFL thread. I hope to see you back. And by the way, the 2019 Packers were a pretty dang good football team.  :-D

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.
