What has happened to this Group???

i cant believe this is the same group i use to see so many involved and
full of life..we use to do so many swaps and have lots of fun..What has
happened?
i check in and each day its hardly any posts or the same posts that no
one answers too..i try and do my part to bring new things to this group
but its hard when the posts just get pushed down barely or sit on top
cause of no participation..
i just miss the fun we all use to get from this group..
hope everyone is doing ok..
just miss you all

I know, I feel the same way. I know almost everyone has gone over to facebook, but there, it is just not the same. Too many other things to get through and around. I check every day, also. Some members were having trouble as so many Internet providers were dropping the news service, but once I got eternal-september hooked up right, my news group shows up in my windows mail. Not it is so easy to check on. My husband is still in the hospital. This was his fourth trip since Christmas Eve. Been in this time since Jan 11th. He's an hour away from home and with working 12 hours a day and running to the hospital twice a week and spending all weekend there I'm finding myself with no time to even breath right now. Especially with two children still at home who need me too. Right now I am just "dream scrapping" as I go through my old magazines before passing them on, taking what I want from them. My youngest DS loans me his netbook to take to the hospital with me on the weekends so I can try to keep up with family and friends somewhat. I do wish I had one of the gypsies to play with as I could do more that "dream scrap" on the weekends. There is not any room where he is right now to work on anything. Plus, when he is awake I spend my time trying to work with him. He needs so much motivation/pushing/bullying just to keep moving I come home mentally exhausted.

It appears a lot of the sites are experiencing downturns! One of my scrapping sites is closing down because no one will step forward and take over. Other sites that I am a member of are also saying the same thing. Is the scrap booking rage finished? Different economy, different things happening in our lives, younger families having to spend more time with young ones? So many things it could be. Facebook taking over is the one I seem to hear about the most and see people gravitating from their sites to Facebook!!

Cathy...I think this group is being dropped from most newsservers as there is so little participation and people find it hard to access through Google, etc. Many have just moved over to Facebook or use their own blogs to let folks know what they are up to. For me FB & blogs don't fit the bill even though I have caught up with many that were on here on FB. Peeps seem to spend their time participating more in the applications that FB provides and post little or nothing to do with scrapping...so "conversation" is limited. To me it is just like texting by phone....short, pithy answers. Not what I am interested in I'm afraid!
As for blogs...I don't find them all that useful for keeping in touch with people as they are basically one-sided communication. You may get to see what they are doing, etc. but apart from making a comment on something posted there is very little opportunity for shared communication. All very sad!!! I also miss the fun and talent of this group, Marilyn

I too agree with you. I am very sorry to hear of your troubles!! My Heart and Prayers go out to you. I miss all the fun and swaps we used to have. Maybe we can muster up some ideas and get it going again??? Blessings, Dorothy in NY

We're setting up an r-c-s site on facebook, MC the 2nd did it. It is just hard to find current threads through google and I'm tired of sifting through spam. I'm scrapping and card making but with school it is hard to upload and juggle everything.
Facebook is easy to use and understand with patience. I am enjoying it.
Hugs, Kate
