She's in Italy at this time, but I think they will be moving along again with her husband's deployment. I keep in touch with her. Will let her know that you said hi!

You know...now that I've taken a breath from HT, I can look at it with fresh eyes. There were alot of things I got hung up on, especially with moderation. Hope more people start to visit.

i think if they want to, and someone can let them know HT is making a comeback, they'll come. maybe not as frequently as their lives may be busier, but even popping in every now and then would be nice.

One of the things about Old HT that really got to me towards the end, had to do with the newer guys posting and calling people out, saying inappropriate stuff or immature semi-trolling. It took away the community spirit and got on my nerves. You know what I mean. And they were rude to the girls. I can't blame them for leaving.

That said, it's really nice to be back. I wish some of the older members would return. Some people got married and have kids now, so they're busier and not online. Some have left HI. Maybe a local G2G would bring some folks back. Maybe word of mouth. Not sure.

I was absent totally for about 2 years. I agree with Mike in an earlier post that Facebook's rise to power in the 2000s contributed to the drop in participation in all kinds of vBulletin discussion forums, of which HT was part of.

FB really catered to what people in general desired in online social activity; sharing pictures, thoughts and sentiments (and trash), and the ability to network with friends of other friends by affinity (activities, movies, sports etc.) or just making friends off of other friends.

Personally, I draw my lines on FB there. I have a hard time on social media with someone I have never met in person, unless they've been someone I've discussed life with online (such as Hawaii Talks) for years. Getting "friend requests" from friends of friends with no prior connection was a stretch for me, and I've only accepted a few of those requests mainly because of fishing affiliation and solicitation of businesses (like Brian's Fishing Supply).

Nori, maybe since all the troll types go to FB for their hijinks and monkeyshines, we can bring healthy and decent conversation back to HT the way it was, and usher in the younger ones to engage similarly.

But I wouldn't count on it. Younger ones like and want "likes", "shares", "follows" and other pseudo-validations of self-worth. When they get over that, they can migrate to HT for "real" discussion.

aloha to everyone! *raises hand* idio present and accounted for!

with the reload... I found an opportunity to take the King of the Arcade title
I set a goal of 100 high scores and have succeeded.
what brought me back was xeno tactic. lol. I introduced it to my coworker and he's been bent on 'beating' the game... so I tried to play it again and found that... OMG! the high scores was unclaimed! which gave rise to the King of the Arcade goal. lol.

It's great to see a few folks back!

It's been slow re-starting... trying to post somewhat interesting things to start conversation (at least in General Discussion), but no responses except for Act162this and idio.

I guess praying for divine intervention would help too! I miss everyone yakking away at HT. Even if no one "likes" it like on FB.

I won't give up.
