Post What happened to this site?
I remember once upon a time this was the place for heated discussions involving Sondheim, Webber, and Voltaire. The Duchess of Mint was a joke but now seems to be the board leader. What happened?

Well, perhaps you should stop by more often...

Seriously though, it happens. People have to live...work...maybe have children...Virtual reality takes a back seat to the really real world. And people tend to fade. For some, they find other interests.
And if you become a full-time performer/entertainer, then you just won't have time.

...or maybe it's personal and they just don't like me.

I'm kidding, I just made that up...no really. :shifty:

I'm still here.

I hide out amongst the rubble, shuttered windows, and brick over at the Les Mis forum. This "Social Club" section has been dead, dead, dead since...2008?

But we Les Mizzers are still chatting away, without an end in sight....

No, no, no, the social club used to be thriving even in 2009 and 2010.

Some like Brig, Jack, Gil, Sarah, Christina, Lyss, Shane, and everyone else I'm sadly forgetting at this second, just don't post as much. It makes me sad :-(

Even Beagle's absence makes me kind of sad haha

Forums of this kind are pretty out-dated. It's all Facebook, Twitter and blogs etc etc nowadays.

It's a shame, but we can be proud that it was the best, by far, in its heyday.

Interestingly enough, I still sort of lurk here every day, even though I don't post that much. Basically been working on my career here in New York. Interestingly enough I feel sort of obligated to try to be as active as possible considering my history (been here on the verge of 7 years now). But I don't know, I feel like there's only so much for me to say.

Hello again to the various people who I've known in the past.

I just barely found this place (first post! Hi all), having finally discovered the wonders of Sondheim at age 31, after not seeing much theater at all in my 20's. And going through all the old threads on the Simply Sondheim board has been fun.

I wouldn't say all forums like this are dead. City Data forums, IMDB forums, Craigslist forums, off the top of my head, are all extremely active. And Christ, can you really have a good intelligent discussion like these on Facebook or Twitter? (I don't use Twitter) I also just found Broadway World, and it's pretty active, but they put everything in this one gigantic board without any subforums, making it unusable.

So yeah, sorry I missed this place when it actually happened. I did get a chuckle that one of the first things it asked me for in my profile was my ICQ name.

I think that MdN's strength is its topic forums which still get activity. The social club has definitely taken a hit based on people's use of other social metworking sites such as facebook and twitter. This is still the place to come if you want to talk musical theater.
