The social network for Star Trek Fans!
Not too long ago - just a few months, really - I came back to Trekspace after a somewhat lengthy period of inactivity. In the short time I have been back I have met great people and struck up some wonderful correspondence, the likes of which I have not had before.
Today I went through my inbox, archiving some messages and deleting others. As I went along, moving those messages around, names and conversations I had forgotten about started creeping upwards. I went through a few of them; as I read, I started to get excited, I wanted to talk to these people again and see what they were up to - I wanted to catch up with them. I clicked the names to take me to their profiles, but, unfortunately, their profiles were no longer there.
I do not know where these people went. They may still be here, just with a different profile and name, or they may be long gone; I really have no way of knowing. Either way, I am sad that I didn't stay in touch with them when I had the chance, or get better information from them so that we could stay in touch if one of us took a break from or left this site.
Hopefully, I'll run into those people again, and we can start right back up where we left off, but I don't think that's likely to happen.
