Just curious about other members' participation in this forum and how it maybe has changed over time.
My best guess is that I've been active in the commuting forum since 2008 or 2009. I started in Classic and Vintage and sort of wandered over here and stayed. I used to be active in the Winter Cycling and Triathlon forum but rarely visit either one now. Sometimes I'll go to the mechanics or road forum.
After several years of participation I see a lot of repeat topics. I've got no problem with that as newer members are going to have the same questions and interests that people have had in the past and they should have an opportunity to discuss them. However for me, this means that my interest in the forum will often wane for long periods of time as I don't always want to rehash the same old stuff again and again.
I'm not the only one since there are quite a few names that I don't see nearly as often as I did in 2008. Part of the natural progression of things I suppose.
What about the rest of you?
