I am letting everyone know that I have decided to leave the Forum.
I have no idea if any Admin staff would see my message, so I didn’t bother trying to send it to them. I got an automated message when I first joined, which I thought was a bit impersonal, as you expect a real person to welcome new members.
Anyway, I just wanted to extend you the courtesy of this notification and not just leave without saying anything.
I have decided to concentrate my time with the Astronomy Forum I am a member of. Although its theme is specific, it has sections for more personal chat too. It is very active with very regular postings, which I miss on this Forum.
I would like to thank all the members who took the time to chat with me.
Sorry to hear that BM (no u ) - I've enjoyed chatting with you but appreciate you are a busy person and if this forum isn't working for you then quite understand and appreciate you saying goodbye and not just disappearing. Have a lovely weekend, hope you get your bike ride in the New Forest.
This is a small forum so it's going to be quieter than bigger ones because with a smaller amount of active posters also having to go to work, don't get as much time to post, and with small and intimate you don't get the volume of chat.
I don't get as much time as I used to as been really busy showing and selling my house and looking for another. So don't always get time to read and reply to everything.
Sounds like you were happy with your other forum anyway if it is bigger and livelier
Good luck with your forthcoming wedding to Sophia
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
Oh - I thought we did all welcome you when you arrived, and have replied to your posts. Ah well - like the girls have said, this forum may not suit everyone's needs. Wish you all the best for the future.

BM if you do come back to read any responses then I’d like to say, sorry you’ve left. As you were told, this is a small forum which has been running for about 13 years. It really doesn’t need moderators to comment as apart from the odd person trying to advertise or leave spam, we generally have a happy and friendly ship. I’m sure if you had messaged the moderators, you would have got a response. The woman who’s idea it was and set it up no longer wished to carry on with the original website but agreed to keep the forum going for those who enjoyed the online company. We are all very grateful to her as she pays for this herself but makes nothing from it. We all got the automated response when we joined. You got many welcoming replies to your first post so I’m surprised you raised that as a reason to leave. I’m sure we all appreciate you letting us know that you have left and wish you well.
