Totally sympathize with you there: I got caught up with work and travel etc. and neglected my legos for almost a year and my online presence for even longer. I can almost imagine what some of the older AFOLs are talking about when they say that they found their childhood collections in storage and are building again. Anyways, yeah I had most of my old projects on there and am now missing the potential self reflection. Plus all of the helpful building tips and construction/configuration discoveries people had made, I always liked visiting the spacewerks to see what way someone had discovered to attach pieces to make a rigid structure or SNOT or greebles or whatever... oh, well, we start again I guess. I hope all of the old members I looked up to come back! (I can't even remember names though)
Myself, Blackice, and You, Blake, have all offered to help refurbish the old place. I think the delay is either due to a lot going on for the admins in real life, or an understandable reluctance of losing the "in-house" management vibe.
