I am back.  I will NEVER retire.  And I have learned my lesson.

Thanks Visper, I owe you one. 

Also Holy crap I got a huge subscriber boost.

I also would like to thank Aeronous for picking up my torch while I was gone.  He's done a good job of critiquing.

Maybe now it won't be so quiet around here.
Still don't know if that's a good thing or not.

It was quiet around here?
In my opinion, ibles is dead. Maybe I've just lost interest but it feels like there isn't as much activity around here as back in the day. We still have regulars who submit their ideas but it still has a slow pace and there's not too much impressive coming out of it. I touch my K'nex, don't come up with anything, and then just leave it for a week or more until I try again. K'nex seems to be a dieing hobby.

I think it's because all the top knexers are growing up, and get caught up in things like school. Knexfreek told me once that he has a social life and it was either that or knex. He chose the social life obviously.

Now I on the other hand got noticed by my friends and they all liked my guns (with the exception of a few junior high trolls), so I really don't have that option which is good.
Well it's funny that people are "growing up" and think they're gaining a social life by giving up K'nex. People really need to grow some maturity and stop judging a person by their hobbies. I still go about my life and just put K'nex in whenever I have the time. It's not of high priority but it's still on the list.

But still I'd hope we'd replace the leaving K'nexers with new K'nexers. It'd suck if it became a forgotten art.

I guess we haven't done much to teach the new generation.
It's because you guys keep telling them to build NARs and TRs...
Show them some more complicated builds.

Reason: They need to start with these guns so they know what we call a good knex gun.
But a lot of the so called "Kings of Knexing" learned from building the small things and improved upon them by themselves. If you don't have anything to build upon it's no fun. You have to remember too that a lot of the new knexers are younger and they aren't going to be on the same level as the older ones that are leaving.
