I've just been looking through the age group poll - and there are loads of people on it who I've never seen before. People with 800 odd posts even.

Where have they all gone? Have the Mk7 Mafia driven them off with all our talk of waiting times? :unsure:

I once entered a pun competition. I wrote ten amazing puns and thought one would win. But no pun in ten did. ^_^

Quiet indeed.

Hmmm, yes - we STILL haven't seen Jonny's car!

JAR is noticeable by his absence. He promises videos that don't appear :blink: :lol:

boo hiss to johnny, the day before he got it as well!!

hopefully he will post sdomething saying he fell down a hole for a few months and he didnt have the internet, and then he was rescued by little cows that then confiscated his laptop after johnny confessed his love for beef. then after many weeks of reasoning he then got his laptop back and ran home. the end.

JAR put up some video's on his facebook but you are right about Jonny87 - he did disappear.

As for people disappearing, I guess we all come in here to chat away about how much we are looking forward to our car's being delivered and then once they have we are too busy driving them about. Bearing in mind I would have been carless for 13+ weeks by the time I get mine (if it is delivered to time) then I know it is what I am going to be doing

I think people go through phases; strange though that Jonny87 has disappeared-wonder if he's OK. :unsure:

Personally, I try to post every day if possible but it depends on who's around doesn't it? :rolleyes:

I think it would be a pity to desert the forum just because you've got the car--half the enjoyment in life is being able to chat to different people and it's such a friendly site as well plus...............you'd miss your hedgepig wouldn't you?

Don't all answer at once now.................................... :lol: :P
