I'm taking a break from the forum

Hi guys!

I know it's been a while since you've heard from me but I've been taking a break from the forum and still probably will be. I just wanted to make a post. I didn't appear online until now. About two days ago, I signed in anonymously and my name suddenly appeared on the bottom (it didn't before). I thought it was messed up that it did because then people know I was here but I guess I have to abide by whatever the administrator chooses. Part of the reason I took a break is because I wasn't liking the administration of the forum and more personal things but I don't want to "cause drama" as I am still mentally sensitive to any retaliation from someone. I don't have time for that and it's mentally draining that's why I'm vaguely mentioning it. Actually, I had written a much longer, personal post but I edited it out. I've been signing in anonymously not as often as I used to when I was more active on the forum but I have and thought it'd be fair to let those who plan to sign in anonymously to create another account or not to sign in at all if they don't want to be seen as recently logged in, as I have.

About my state of mind, I've been much better of off of the forum. My mental health has been slowly but surely improving. I haven't been very active as I said, I'm still currently in a state of improvement so I'm not trying to fill my life with little incidents that cause drama, etc. And I don't want to be treated badly.

I hope everyone is doing well!

I have taken breaks before, @Nesf has decided not to use this site claiming that it is oriented around live streams that are not her thing. I don't know about @Miss Chief as she too hasn't been here for quite some time, as far as I can see.

I hate to say it, but I no longer feel welcome here. There are other places I  can go where making the effort to post is much more rewarding and likely to be appreciated.

With ASD you tend to get these "down" periods and feelings of retreating or even feel like not belonging. It happens to most members. Activity is now kind of low again and that too will discourage people to post as you wonder if anyone will be left to browse. I still think running an ASD related forum is kind of hard as we aren't that great at socialising and may get mood swings.

Maybe Asperclick has had its heyday. lol Everything ends.

I found one Russian.ASD forum I may join although the last one was disappointing - too much promoting drug therapy.

I've been popping in every so often, but I'm more of a thread contributor than a thread stater. 

I think everyone from the heyday has grown up, graduated, got a job, stated a family and moved on. It has been many many years now. (It did perk up again in February though, so...)

I actually really miss the old times. But I have not been here for a very long time either. Maybe I will try come back now and again

It's always good to see posts - such as on this thread - from members who used to be very active here but have been away. Even if they don't make a regular return it's nice to see news from them. It is perhaps true that as with almost any activity we can reach a point where we feel we don't really have much more to say or our interests move on but it can still be good to pay return visits. I think there are members who would like to be more active but are deterred by the current limited activity on here which means their contributions - whether that be starting a thread or contributing to one - attract limited attention. We then get members checking in less often which can mean they miss a potentially fruitful thread. There aren't any easy answers. Maybe - as Peridot suggested - Asperclick has passed its peak but I think most of us would agree it has still been tremendously useful over the years. It is a community of sorts and there is always a lot of satisfaction in the return of a familiar face, even if it's only a fleeting visit.

I have started a few threads that still have no replies, for example, one on captioning Willow's videos, and another example.
