Things are slowing down, I see.
Me, I haven’t felt like chatting about IF – nor playing it, writing it, or really even thinking about it lately. I got my issue of SPAG yesterday, and that’s been about it. Oh, and I answered a Hugo authoring question in the newsgroup, and mailed out the IFComp T-Shirts last week. Mainly I’ve just been playing a lot of video games, and working.
Must be the IF off-season.
Does this kind of thing usually happen after the IF comp?
I think Merk posted that because there wasn’t a lot of activity happening here that time. People would usually drop by, check for new posts/threads - if they feel like not posting for one reason or another, they don’t.
I don’t think it usually happens after the IF Comp, though. More like “every now and then” to me, not necessarily after any comp.
It’s probably just normal. Everything ramps up during and following the IFComp. But mainly, it’s a shame I’m not doing much to contribute. My free time’s just spread too thinly lately.
