    LOL. No worries. I definitely understand having a full plate. I had one up until a couple hours ago. Now I've re-arranged the contents, but it is still very full. PhD Research takes up about a plate and a half.

    Re: Walking Away...

    I started analyzing at SevenForums, but for some reason, I'm having difficulty returning. The main reason I analyze is to help the people in need, but it's difficult to do so when a hefty amount of people you look up to are gone or moved on to other forums. There are still a few there, like JaidynM, but the majority are gone and that's uncomfortable. That's why I've stuck to TSF and Sysnative.

    Yeah, I am not sure where I will go next. I know I'll be here, but there are few blue screens that come through here, and I like the puzzles they present. Hopefully, I can find another suitable place to provide expertise.

    Tech Support Forum has been good to me the past few weeks. I go there when there isn't anything to work on here / if things here are already attended to. A lot of the great people we have here are on there as well.

    Yeah, TSF is a popular forum. I also used to use Overclock.net, another tech community.

    I'm a Forum Moderator there. I've been trying to push for the implementation of an analysis forum for quite some time.

    Re: Walking Away...

    I stepped down from TSF about a month ago...

    I was Design Manager and a Mod for MS.

    I could go back anytime I am sure but It is most likely a conflict of interest now that John has stepped down also.

    I have the utmost respect for how TSF handled things, despite the conflict everyone left happy and on good terms.

    Re: Walking Away...

    Laxer, why would it be a conflict of interest to be a staff member of more than one forum? I know many, many people who are Admins/Moderators of multiple forums (myself included). We volunteer our time to help others. The reward is the occasional thank you and the satisfaction in having been able to help.

    Re: Walking Away...

    More or less because I am treated like an employee and not respected by the "senior-staff" there...

    I have my reasons for departure mostly because it became an obligation not something I enjoyed...

    As I said to Mike earlier in this thread, when it stops being fun, then it is time to stop.

    Looks like Greg joined the forum. You are welcome to forward my contact info. I promise that despite any hurt feelings, I do not hold grudges, and would appreciate the chance to clear up misconceptions with people I was (and hope still can be) friends with at SevenForums.

    PM me a list, and I will forward. I will never talk bad about either forum "behind their backs" so to speak, but keeping friends in touch is A OK with me
