Since I am a somewhat recent un-lurker, I have an Amiga 2000 currently in a coma, she's not yet rejoined the living.

I lurk therefore I am!

A1200 for gaming, but hopefully will learn some new stuff at the upcoming Amiga Ireland meetup this weekend.  Also Interested in getting my hands on NG hardware when affordable (A1222), maybe then I'll have something to post about!

Why?  So someone can make me feel like an idiot for being a newb?  Or so I can post a pic of a piece of hardware, only to have a forum member who happens to be a medical doctor make a sarcastic comment about the dry skin on my hands?  No thanks.  That's why I stopped posting/asking questions two years ago.

The same DR person mentioned in the above ^^^ post is also the reason I quit posting at the same time. He even followed up with some nasty PM's. I have a LOT of classic hardware too.

Dude.  Chill. I just asked what Amiga you have.  Maybe you don't have one and use Emulation, or you have a Mac or PC.  That's cool, you don't have to have an Amiga.

Rarely even visit this site anymore.  Maybe once every handful of months without being logged in.

Best group to be a part of is the Commodore Amiga Facebook page.  13,000+ members and 100s probably actively checking/posting on the daily.  Much more active.  No reason to shut yourself out of an active community.  By now most have gave into the evil of Facebook.

Surprised to see much of anyone left here.  Forums will be a relic of the past just like BBS. :)

I lurk. I sometimes post.
I posted more years back but I feel this place went downhill.
No offence to anyone as there are still people around that I like and enjoy reading posts by. Just the topics stopped interesting me as much.

Hope that doesn't turn out to be the case.  Forums are searchable and allow you to have a real conversation.  I can go back and reference a post from 10 years ago easily, if I need to.  Try doing that on Facebook.  ;)

I agree, at least for the moment  anyway. Forums have a lot to offer over Facebook. I was a member of the Amiga group on there and found myself wasting so much time scrolling through pictures of peoples various Amiga hoards.

I prefer the forums now, they have always been more useful.
