I think I might have an explanation for this slowdown. Besides the Summer which surely holds the major-responsibility. We have a lot of dying games, lately. Which leads to lesser posts but ALSO to frustration of players. Investing time and thought into a character only to find a game shut down and your storyline ended violently in the middle has a certain frustration in it. I was accused to have made three players leave forever, when I vanished a while ago. I gave it thought and that is surely partial true. Basically we have about 10 slow movers and five fast-movers in the RPF. The five most posted games were AFAS, 133, ManCubs, 11 ABY and 41 ABY in the last few month. AFAS went on hiatus, 11 ABY and 41 ABY had a break and in the NSWRPF Aria of the Soul was killed off. Some players found new games to participate in, but I was under the impression some players left altogether. Right now I think we have no game where the majority of players participate in ANY board. Except AFAS, probably, who has seen many player leave, lately. Think about it.
