I don't think forums can cause burn out myself.
But I think Dave aced a very real concern. Some of us can tire of a topic that won't go away. or in some cases seems to drag on and on, or insist on redundant repeatings.
I don't have trouble with it, but can recognise that it might just be me.
I have been active on several forums now, but clearly I am most active at Matrix Games. I have seen the rise of Matrix Games, and it almost feels like the 70's again in some ways.
I would like to see more than one Matrix Games of course. But I do remember fondly watching companies like AH, VG, SPI, TSR, GDW, and no doubt some others I don't recall now create up some grand wargaming.
Computer Gaming has a number of company names out there, but few seem to be bastions of true wargamer designs currently.
Fortunately we do have a few though.
But the one big difference today, is I don't have to fret over waiting for the next issue of the General, or S&T to get input on what's happening in wargaming.
I might burn out on a topic, but I sure love coming to the forum.
I LIKE that my life bothers them,
Why should I be the only one bothered by it eh.
