Maybe I should be putting this 'editorial' in one of the two other watch forums I belong to, as I believe they're probably better places to have this post actually read. I don't know at the moment, but I guess we'll see, won't we?
It could be that all forums as we know them are slowly dying out in favor of Facebook or MySpace or whatever. Or maybe we're too much like Watchlords in design (though not in temperament). Perhaps it's just a forgotten place, what with its members being incredibly active in other places.
Whatever the reason, it is my sense, as one of the founders here, that Watchforums.org is on its way out. Even our once-the-most-active-thread, Watch You are Wearing, has died a slow, anonymous death.
Every time I log in, I see a number of 'guests' in the queue, ostensibly visiting the site and reading its contents. If you're one of these guests and you happened to come across this post, why not register with us and log in...? And if you're already a member...well, it's up to you.
Hey, I'm just as guilty of abandoning this place as anyone else who's not here. By my calculations, before I posted this, I hadn't been here since well prior to the start of the 2013 holiday season. By way of excuse-making, it does get a bit old - and lonely - being the only poster here, but it's still a place that deserves to be active.
If not, then perhaps it's time to pull the plug and make it official...
...what say you?
(And cue the crickets...now.)
