Firstly I'd just like to point out that while some people did consider leaving that didn't mean they would not return. 2ndly JMSD and myself have and will continue to lurk around and we never said that we were leaving we have been with out access for some time now i get on when i can. We are all interested in the direction of SAFF and perhaps by us having our say it may bring some back to the fold. On another thing the charter states that you must live in the state that the election is being held all that have voted so far can say that they do live in SA and that it may be seen as unfair to no allow our votes.I still consider my self a member, i check the threads, i care about the direction SAFF takes. No one is trying to influence votes. We didn't all get together and say hey lets all vote for so and so. Personally i was lurking i saw that there were going to be elections and i voted when they time came. I can't speak for anyone else but i would like to see SAFF return to the happy place it was when i arrived, I'm not saying that will bring people back but it might.
