It really boils down to:
What benefit is it to quit coming here
I have a lot of awesome things to do and only the most awesome ones get done.
Dealing with other programming languages and other technologies has made me power hungry for more and more control over managing system resources with my applications. MMF can't compare. If anyone really stops showing up, it's because they're any of the following
1) not as interested in game creation
2) not as interested in the current technology
3) not as interested in the community

Most everybody is a sucker for some kind of nostalgia, I guess. I wouldn't necessarily say the old days were somehow better, but they were different. I've noticed that every community spot I've been a part of over-the-years starts off being helpful, fun, entertaining, and interesting but transitions into a vacuous, stuffy Q and A post with a project showcase.
Remember when Circy was funny? I do.
tDC was first populated by members from #k&p, and #k&p was choked-full of a lot of off-topic lols and miscellaneous chit-chat. At first, that made its way to tDC until #k&p was cleaned up; #k&p lost its funny. In the same regard, more than a decade later tDC has become more serious. A lot of people would argue that's a good thing. I guess I agree; it's best new users aren't met with a joke reply or a reply in sarcasm before a genuine one, but where's the sense of friendship or comrade up in this bitch? I don't see none. This is a community site? 'Could have fooled me.
I <3 you, Rikus. lol.

Days? I had no days to that point... It's like I've been someone I actually never really was...
Someone else was talking to you all these years...
