As for re-energizing: you're right, Spring. I don't know of anything that might draw people back. I personally don't post much because my life is really quite boring. I don't even post on Facebook that much. But I love checking in here and seeing how people are doing...there's a lot more space to talk here that other social media don't really provide.
One thing I do miss is talking about shows I watch with you guys. I haven't found a substitute for that...
The only thing that might revive this place is if we did really great, timely reviews of some show that was going to be as great and popular and long-running as Buffy - and we did some things to generate traffic to the reviews. But it is nearly impossible to imagine that happening.
I do agree that there is "more space to talk" here, and I don't find that my ventures into FB or Twitter have been as fulfilling. I mean, here we were really able to discuss in depth, and to get to know one another.
For some reason I was thinking of Patti quite a lot the last few days, and did something I hadn't done in ages - looked over our first "where is Patti?" thread. It still had the power to bring me to tears. Though it was a terrible day, it was also one of our finest hours as a board, and something I can't imagine repeating in quite the same way on popular social media.
Yeah, it just doesn't have the same...cohesiveness, maybe? I don't know, but I definitely do not find social media congenial to that type of discussion.
