Nine years on NG!Well, since you and Coop aren't posting here as much, I often find myself not knowing what to respond to, which really sucsk.
This should be a joyful milestone but my news post says otherwise. Just shows how much I've changed myself this year alone and how close I'm getting to the end of my time on here.
It's a domino effect, really. When some of us don't post in a while, none of us do but when some of us start posting here again, it picks up but not by a whole lot. I could add a fair amount of discussion here but how much of it will be responded to?
Also the overall activity has been declining here so much that I rarely check the BBS for new posts. Hell, I even think I might have missed a deposit this week, but I'm too lazy to check, heh.
The latest EXP update suggests otherwise.
Anyway, I will still reach 30k Experience, but from that on, I don't know how far I can push myself.
I'm still going to aim for level 60 but I'll have to see how I feel about the site from now until then. I still want to see if I can go beyond level 60 and still continue to deposit as I did before but when I look at the latest update, I can see a lot of people who are level 60 are starting to slip up. I actually wonder when the day I slip up one day with missing a deposit is going to happen as there's been plenty of days where I thought I didn't deposit but still did so.

I'm more than a little under a cloud over work (factors beyond my control), cricket (my situation with the various aspects of club admin) and personal life, so Newgrounds has sadly taken a back seat of late :(
That's just how life goes. While I have more free time than you do, slowly but surely my life gets occupied by other things. Years back I only went out of the house twice a week and Wednesday was only for a few hours whereas Saturday was just the afternoon. Now I'm finding myself out all day on Wednesday, Saturday and going Friday night. I do what I can to keep myself occupied whilst in unemployment but when I DO get a full-time permanent job, that will leave me with hardly any free time to have and I'd like to spend my spare time on more important things.
There's that factor of spending my free time more wisely when I'm on the laptop. While I should try and play video games on my laptop more often, I've made a good decision to dedicate more time on Twitter and Tumblr where I have acquired more contacts for this year alone. I've even managed to meet a few people from Tumblr and I hope to see more from that site in the near-future. It's much better to find common interests from a more active site as such as Tumblr as opposed to Newgrounds so this is why I spend less and less time on here.
If some of us leave here permanently, I would like to acquire contacts of you all before you move on because I'd like to still speak to some of you even when NG is hardly in your interests anymore. Sadly some of you aren't accustomed to social networking so keeping in touch won't be that easy. Thankfully I have Coop on Twitter and some of you on Steam but if not, how will you stay in contact with us?

Cheer up people! Summer holiday has ended, so me, along with probably a lot of other people, are just busy with their school/work again. I'll be getting medals soon. :3
They say that but in reality the activity is dying really hard. I hate to jump on the "NG is dying" bandwagon that's going around a lot these days but just look at the statistics. There's much less discussion going on as opposed to years back. Hell, even a few years ago was more active than this. Where it is now has become a new low and the fact that Tom has been looking to revert the NGHQ back to working in houses as opposed to an office just shows the direction this site is heading to.
