I can't seem to bring myself to come back here 100% either. I lurk every once in a while and post every now and then but I just can't do it full time. I have 16 days, 6 hours, and 30 minutes of my life logged on this forum. It just doesn't feel like home anymore.

I used to be on here all the time and I had a blast. I think I just got to the point where some of the people on here made me feel unwanted for various reasons. I started feeling like I didn't belong and that I should be on The Box. Like being a DD/Amanda fan wasn't enough. It's hard to explain.

Fun should definitely be the only criteria.

for me the forum became a secondary place when amanda opened her twitter account. most of the action, news and intelligent discussions seem to be going on over there. plus on twitter amanda retweets only the most relative and positive so you don't get the nasty comments or the conversations that turn into spam that  you tend to get on a forum

Umm, but isn't your home is where you often have fun? Lol.

As i'm not that into Amanda's solo works, i sometimes feel myself like a foreigner, like somebody who is completely unable to understand what it's really about. Anyway i still get easily impressed by some works/blogs/posts of her and Neil Gaiman, that's one of the reasons that keep me here. On the other hand i really like the people here, there's always somebody to listen to you,give you good advices, laugh with you etc. I also like it when i read weird news or scientific facts here. It's not like Fb or some other social network.

I sometimes can't find the power in myself to post things in here, but i definitely like to read any posts written by any of the Boxers.

really? twitter seems so random to me... she retweets interesting posts by people but you can't really have a deeper conversation with them.. there's so many people and i don't feel like i want to talk to any stranger that happened to be retweeted by amanda or someone else in my stream... maybe twitter is just too fast for my taste.

my point was that on twitter we all interact with Amanda and Amanda with us and even though we don't interact whithin the fanbase, for many people it seems to be all they need!
