When I first joined it was way more active here. In fact there were nine or ten moderators at a time. I was one myself for about a year (way too overwhelming with my schedule though). A lot of "regulars" have disappeared unfortunately and activity has dwindled down here too. Much of it has to do with changes in ownership and management of the site. Also, not too long ago passwords were all reset due to a security breach and a lot of people have been having trouble logging on. It took me over a week to be able to log on after the reset. Usernames and passwords were literally wiped out and some people had to start over with zero posts to their name and/or a new username, making it difficult to recognize old members who contributed so much for so long. I miss the real sense of community and friendship I gained here. I can name over a handful of awesome members who have disappeared that used to be regular contributors. I don't think people realize how much of a community forums can be. it is more than information and support sharing. Lasting friendships are built here. I have a few friends from here I stay in touch with on Facebook.

I belonged to two other vegan forums before Veggieboards that were very busy for a long time, then slowly died out and became ghost forums. It's sad that this happens. I really hope that newcomers here continue to contribute and share and do not shy away or leave. I think Veggieboards attracts a wider base of people due to the mix of vegetarians and vegans and everyone in between. But there have been clashes as well. I guess it's difficult to keep a forum running, but some of us keep trying!

Naturebound Hi Shayne!

Yes, it's a shame that so many online vegan communities have died out. Veggieboards has been around for a very long time. Good to have you here!

New member, excited to join the community!

Hey everyone! my name is Shayne, I'm a 21 year old from the great country of Canada and I've been vegan for 4 and 1/2 months. I am loving this lifestyle/diet! I feel amazing both mentally and physically. I've been looking for a vegan community that's actually active, because most of the ones I've found there wasn't any recent posts in weeks or months. Looks like this one is active! ( by the way I respect you vegetarians also! haha ) Looking forward to talking about food, exercise and anything else that's interesting or of big importance!
