Never fear; I'm still here! (On second thought, maybe this is more of a reason to fear than anything else.)
I wouldn't interpret the lull in posting as a lack of enthusiasm. I haven't posted in awhile, but I'm still checking the strip and the forum regularly, and I'm sure there are plenty of people who are doing the same.
Yes, school has started or will be starting soon (I go to a school with a start date of September 26, but I'm moving back next week), so a lot of people's minds are elsewhere.
Also, updates in the strip are coming less frequently, as you told us they would, so we don't have completely new discussion material presented to us every day.
I can't speak for anyone else on the next reason I'm not posting as much, which is because I still feel a bit like a newcomer to this forum, which carries with it the fear of saying something incredibly stupid and embarrassing myself. I only overcome that fear when I'm 80% sure that I have something to contribute to the discussion, and even then I'm afraid that it's iffy.
Well, I guess what I'm trying to say is that we're still here, even if we're not as vocal as we used to be.
