    Hello everybody! This is just a general checking up on everybody thread. Tonight at the boss battles we had a very low turnout. It was almost like the beginning of the Stratics runs. VP we had two groups of 5 and 6 (I think), and only one group in CFO and CJ. Where are da people at! I know a lot are playing other games, but just wanted to make sure we don't smell or anything? Check in and let us know what you've been up to!
  2. We have alot of users but nobody shows up. Getting very quite and alot of people I dont even know. Come out of hiding stratics members!

    The cfo was a minor mixup - we had a group in both Kooky Grove and one in Funnyfield. I think that's it....

    I know I've been really busy lately. Most of the time people are reminding me what day it is and where I should be so that could be a bit of it.

    I feel terribly guilty about continuing to miss Sunday runs, but real life has just been so hectic and the fact that my family of four has one computer capable of internet access has severely cramped my style. My husband is taking an online course, my daughter is a Youtube junkie, my son and his friends all need to check on their neopets and then there's my own little foray into wizardland. I just sat down at the computer to get caught up, and my daughter came up and said "I need to get on in an hour." JEEZ!!

    Anyway, sorry sorry sorry. I will REALLY try to be on next Sunday. (Hubby's gonna be out of town - so one down!)

    Hubby's been needing my help with stuff every Sunday. I thought when the kid went to basic I'd have more time, but alas I was wrong. It's really not looking good for me. I can't even remember the last time I logged into TT.

    Well, I hope that my showing up to the VP fight helped- I brought along my friend's Bumbleflap and Snoop, but I'm not sure if Snoop went in with a group or not.

    I'm working on getting my cashbot suit right now- and as soon as I do, I'll come along to fight there, too. :]

    Unless, of course, you hate my guts and don't want me to come. xD

    Edit: Oh, and what have I been up to? I've just been trying to regain my sanity, and stop myself from smashing things against my computer. Hah.

    But honestly, I don't know why I quit. I guess I just didn't see the interest in Toontown for awhile. Recently, however, I've been having a lot of fun on it, and I hope to stay longer this time. :3
  8. I have been really busy with the game stuff, I'm taking a college class, I have had a lot of orders in my painting business, and I have a daughter graduating this year and her open house is this Saturday. Due to the lovely MI economy, my husband is living out of state for work again which will also severely limit my play time. I am hoping that once our first game gets out (1-2 months) I will be able to make the runs more consistently but then there will be the next game..........

    I'm not sure it is the Sunday runs alone, I think it is TT in general. I think a lot have just stopped playing or have slowed way down. When I do get a chance to log on, no one is on-line so I usually end up just logging off!

    I know I was never really a presence on the Boss runs anyway, but I used to always try to make it to Beanfest. I've just lost my desire to play, well not really exactly. I WANT to play, I MISS playing, but when I do get logged in, the repetition just smacks me in the face. I never enjoyed the Boss stuff that much, and I have 3 toons at 111, which is my maxing point. I have a 4th in DDL one in DG. I think if there was something totally new, a new gag or a new playground with tasks, I'd be back in hot and heavy.

    i'm kinda like kathy...i need to be reminded what day of the week it is. lol :loser: i think it's gotten worse since school has been out for the summer, too (at least it has around here).

    the only reason i remembered this last sunday was a very excited 9 year old who kept reminding me about the cfo about every hour for 6 days straight. lol he plans to hold onto that unite like it''s made of gold. :D

    i'm all for an IM to remind me it's time to come play. :danceb:

    you'd think sunday and thursday would be easy for me to remember. :blushing: :dunce:

    Well I just started back playing and when I logged on I noticed that I did not have any friends on. Back in the days I had around 10-15 friends on at a time. I guess they are either playing Wizards or have new toons they are working on. The way My work schedule is now, I work 7 days and off for 7. So I will try to be there every other Thursday's and Sunday's. Depending on the Baby. LOL!!! Which now determines everything. Its funny How you could just pack up and take trips and now its like we dont go anywhere. So I should be there next sunday.

    So many familiar (and a few new) voices! Sweet! A few of us are still running at least one Tuesday CFO to take the odd couple of small stratics toons through. We usually supplement with our friends list but we do get it done. Again, I'm usually reminded to get over there but all works out in the end...

    I've been on less also due to RL, but also because my son found Wizard 101. He's only allowed one purchased game at a time, so he's dropped TT, as has my wife since she wasn't playing much either. My account is still active but Sunday's have had other activities (like Father's day get together) and the last two Thursdays didn't produce enough Stratics folks for one run. One week we just didn't go (or I didn't) and the other we went to River. I hate doing a boss in River - the lag can be deadly. Now I'm on TT and Wizard, but I really don't know if I'll keep the TT account. With so many of the other regulars missing on most of my recent runs, I've found it easier to shift to Wizards. I'll be around now and then, but not as much as I once was. I'd drop TT altogether, but I'd miss this community. It doesn't seem to be present in Wizard, or I just haven't found it yet.

    Anyway, on Wizard 101 I'm Alexander MythHunter and my son is Ryan RedTalon.

    Daddio, you need to send some codes my way for your wizard. I have Rachel moondust over there among a few others. She will finally be a Grand Master. We belong to a great adult group over there and you should join us.
  22. Lol im usally the voice that reminds kathy of the beanfests. I'll be your reminder too! LOL!

    I would join if I could but your Sunday evenings are my Monday mornings. I try to be there when my patient load is light but Mondays are usually busy days.

    Well, as for me, I got sucked into Wizards 101, then my mom came for a month-long visit, and now I'm just trying to recover from that :)

    I have also become of a victim of Real Life. I am going to try to come back on some. I spend most evenings working on my line of jewelry. I have to do something to try to bring money into this household or we will lose this place, and I dont wanna do that! I will put the details of that in the Off Topic forum if you are interested. :thumbsup:

    Anyhow, I am sorry to have missed so much. Oh, I have also started a new toon. She is a pale pink duck named Pinky Gigglequack. If anyone needs a baby to help them complete a task, send me a code, ok? :D
