    I used to be in contact with a few members on here, and we exchanged email messages from time to time. I noticed 2 things about them. Firstly, they had been members for much longer than I had (I am taking years, not months) and secondly, if they were late to reply they would always say something along the lines of... "sorry I haven't logged in for a long time". This is fair enough of a statement, especially given the fact I have just had two weeks off LPSG. The thing is, I got so bored with it after a while. It's like... when I am on I want to contribute as much as I can, and when I am not logged in, I don't really care and feel bored of it and think it's a waste of time.

    Anyone else feel this, or similar? Or not?

    Sometimes, yeh. Viewing pics and stuff quickly gets lame. But if you get to know people in chat or on the forums, and get involved in discussions, there's more to keep you interested.

    I guess you gotta decide whether you want to spend time on here, and how much. I tend to limit it, so it stays fun, and doesn't interfere too much with the rest of my life. :)

    I also think that it's important for me, and lots of other people to not take it too seriously. I was really addicted in the beginning and loved going through the pics, posting my pics, getting feedback, giving feedback etc. Not only was it a huge ego boost, but I could dabble in discussions and start my own. In the end, I think I realize that there's a lot of sh*t on here, amongst the quality. It's best not to take it too seriously, and I also think after a while you can see patterns in people's posting behaviors.

    Everyone here has a different agenda. The site is what you make of it.

    Some people make very deep personal connections on here with people that become lifelong friends. Some people have met partners on here. On the other hand, some people just come for the political debate or witty banter. Some just come to be adored, humiliated, or to get their rocks off. You are smart to recognize this, and accept it. Some people never do, and they get caught up in drama, ego struggles, or frustration. I have contributed to the site for close to five years, but I also take time off periodically. Try to keep good perspective about your motivation for being here as well as others, and enjoy the ride as long as it takes you.

    well the members make up the website anyway... we all contribute. if you guys get along so well, then surely you can communicate in private?

    or... does the whole lpsg arena add to the excitement? i am not judging anyone, just trying to understand.

    Internet forums are entertainment.They are no more a waste of time than any other form of entertainment.If you're bored of something it just means that you've been spending too much time on it.
    I take breaks from every pastime to prevent boredom.

    Um, were you previously here with a different name, because you make it sound like you've been here for a while, but your join date is barely over a month ago. :wink:

    I am not bored with LPSG.

    I don't always hold the popular belief...but I just write what is on my mind and in my soul. Hehehe.

    I don't have a million posts...or infinite amount of online friends. I didn't have that on MySpace, Facebook, or PlanetOut. Not even on ManHunt.

    I like the people on here. I don't agree with a lot. But I am sure that in spite of whatever disagreeances I may have...there are some other issues that we can agree upon. It isn't the end of the world.

    I think my presence here has, for a considerable period of time, become more about the people and less about the cocks. So as long as the good ol' regulars are still here and the new faces are nice and genuine I'm not bored of LPSG.
