Ditto, what Red said, plus it's always good to welcome new members...help in whatever information any particular member needs be it pc/lappy related or not.
I've been on these forums for over a year, and yeah some people "disapear" when they get their machines, but most of us stay. I guess it's due to the fact, that you can communicate w/ people from all over the world who are just pure enthusiats, that enjoy interacting w/ people w/ the same common interests. It's not like I go out of my way to welcome new members or help other people, but knowing that I was able to provide useful information to either someone new to the forums, someone seeking advice on a purchase, seeking general opinions on an open forum, or just trying to make some "online" friends...really in way gives that "warm fuzzy" feeling inside
Plus I think more people will either be coming back from hiding or sticking around since NBF has sponsored some servers, and it would just be great to play side by side or on opposite sides of the people you pretty much chat w/ on a daily basis. Not to say I'm obsessed, but being on NBF is part of my daily routine...it's like when you wake up in the morning some people turn on the tv n watch the news or read the paper, I check NBF and check CNN.com...when I get back from work, on a trip, in "da loo" aka pooper I don't bring a magazine...I bring my laptop hahahahaha...ok i'm done now
