I've just been re-reading and editing some of my older posts (slightly awkward that because I used my real name when I registered, certain internet searches which people might realistically use to google me direct to ill-considered posts I made when I was 16!). We used to post on many of the same threads.
I actually think that some of the reason the forum isn't so lively now is the (seeming) lack of young people. There don't seem to be so many threads about GCSE results, uni applications and so on. Rather than the forum having a large number of 14-20 YOs, we've now got all the parents
Maybe teenagers don't do forums any more. *Feels old!*
