Trust me, you don't want to be on skype while I am.
All I do is ***** about when I die due to how rusty I am at the game now.
I miss pretty much everyone except for the few who have been banned. Even if I didn't get along with some people, I believe everyone brought something to the forum.
I don't think it is really a bad thing to have new blood, sometimes the odd person comes in that causes a bit of trouble. But we just have to try and make who we can feel welcome, educate people about the game, and try to get them integrated into the forum. There are many times where we have people that may come off at the very start as a bit unfit, but usually it's because its their first post.
Just give people time, eventually they'll become the new old guard.
