I thought the past week was a real eye opening experience to me since I'm pretty much addicted to checking for updates on EGL and the sales comm. For me, it really reminded me how tough it was to buy loli stuff back in the days when large loli communities simply didn't exist and you had to scrounge all over to look for new pieces to buy. It also made me realize I have too much spare time on my hands since at least once an hour my fingers strayed towards my bookmark for the egl comm and the sale comm to see if there was something new to look at.
How did everyone else fair? Was it tough having the comms out of commission after having grown used to having these resources at our fingertips (and potentially having taken it for granted)?
I think after all that's happened, it would be nice to reflect on why these communities are important to us and take a moment to think about what we have to be grateful for. ^^
