It's been a good ride!
« on: December 18, 2014, 08:45:20 PM »

My activity here has dwindled, as it seems everyone's has.
Recently found some Facebook groups are much more active. With no Can convention, no meet, no post editing, no pictures, it just seems there is less and less reason to check in with ol' Joe Canuck. Some of the guys I remember (like Mike, Hal, Dodge, etc.) have faded too.
I was hoping there'd be a change of direction here, or at least some new life of late, but I guess the hobby in general is fading. I myself have sold huge chunks of my collection in the past two years.
All the best to the friends I've made here! Tanks for the memories!

so long grunt. Though I never got to know you, I always enjoyed your posts. You've been a real asset to this site.
Take care.

We'll meet again,
Don't know where,don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.

I guess we have to figure out something to keep the lights on here.

I have the same feeling. One thing that I don't like here anymore is the fact that we can't edit our post. That makes our Want/Sale/Trade lists hard to keep up-to-date.

Activity is low in general in the GI Joe community. But on other forums there are more posts, replys and activities in general than here.

I think the CJC was doing a great job by giving the JC website a great spotlight. But I totally understand it was requesting a lot a time and effort.

EDIT: The edit is back!!!!!!!

Since Grunt4mvp has decided to bail, let me say....

GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never liked you, with your smart, knowledgeable posts.  Your enjoyment of the fandom, and especially not your great prices on some items that you sold me!!!!!!!

Thank god I don't have to put up with that anymore.   hahahaha




Godspeed man, but don't go too far I think there will still be some interesting things for us in the next couple of years.

I found the setting that was disabling post edits. Try changing one of your old posts now.

The one good thing to say, if Grunt4mvp's departure post appeared pointless to me at the beginning, it now repurposed itself in bringing in some more interesting replies and way more good topics on the boards that I haven't seen in a longtime. It even brought back good ol' Canprime to deliver some great topic discussions about the probable 6inch Black series coming our way. We have a saying in South America: every time someone departs, there's a new arrival or a revival. I'd like to believe we are witnessing a small revival :-) (<temporary emoticon. If you don't like it, please adress your complaint to the moderators and support my very selfish driven cause, this I command pretty please! LOL)
