People dont post on or visit these forums entirely because of the harbour. Its not a case of people leaving, its of people not joining. Milegend would have merged its forums with these were it not for the harbour. People who posted pre-merge wont anymore and people who might have posted here wont because this is seen as a somewhat lame forum.
These forums are not like arsen and never will be. This is a MI forum with an off-topic forum as a bonus, not the other way round. No-one has closed a thread for a good while and its about time really, we were getting lazy.
Leaving and returning threads are completely unnecessary, they are the ultimate pointless thread.
"I'm leaving!" - "bye", "I'm back!" -"Wb".
