    is it me or have many of the ppl of the great ntfs forum slowed down on their posting. maybe because of school or maybe because of work, but every summer the posts just pile up and there's always something interesting going on. i hate school. i cant post as much and as many of us, i also work now. so, i guess i could use this quote in this situation.

    "aint life a b****"

    feel free to reply and vent and rant and flame. i want something interesting.
    :D

    There have been up and down periods in forum activity. When I first joined XP-erience (the original name for NTFS, in case you didn't know), I could refresh the new topics page every minute, and there would be new posts waiting to be answered.
    Then there was a period of time during which there was barely any activity, and it was quite disheartening.
    But I do think it's gone up considerably since that time, although NTFS is not nearly as active as it used to be during the XP-erience days. There are still a whole bunch of new threads, and a lot of active members though, and that's always nice to see.

    I've noticed the forums fluctuate a lot. Up one week, down another. But that's the way everything is in life, not just forums.

    And I actually post more at work, but not everyone has a cake job ;)

    Post count goes up and down - XP is getting "older" and it's users are getting more "experienced" - so perhaps not as many questions and more correct and complete answers the first time!

    This isn't directly related to the topic actually, but..

    NTFS forum is quite slow to scroll up and down (I've tried IE and Opera) compared to other forums using vBulletin. Could it be because of the amount of graphics?

    It's the background image, try using the Ekko theme instead.

    wait till longhorn comes out and ntfs.com aka xperience.com becomes longhorn.com :D (that would be interesting)

    we'll have a flurry of activity again...
