Take a look at the front page right now. Is this the future of DDO? Why do so many people seem to be leaving? charleslb, imabench, koopin, ConservativePolitico, 1dustpelt, and now Danielle, one of the longest lived members on DDO, have left. Now where do we go?

The exact same thing happened at this time last year. Many members will probably have to leave for the summer, but with school over, many new members will join. It's the circle of online life, and we are but a phase in it's undulating majesty.

The longer someone is here, the more likely they are to move on.

The more people there are, the more you are going to see some people leaving.

However, nearly everyone who has to make a thread about their leaving is going to come back. The only way people leave is slowly and silently.

Not a big deal.

Maybe we should have DDO funerals?

Then when they inevitably come back, half the active users will actually be zombies!

And the summer before that....and the summer before that.
This time it just happened in a subtle fashion.
I have always thought it is better for the site as it allows new members to speak up and fill the shoes of other members.
