The past two demogames haven't been officially finished, much less there hasn't been too many people posting as of late. The first one was abandoned, and the second was turned into a succession game which just recently finished. Lack of government positions to run for/participate in. Ruleset was too complex to understand. Too much arguing over the rule set. "Demogame Fatigue" (9 demogames is enough!). The game was set (victory/defeat in sight). Game seemed intimidating. Fellow posters seemed intimidating. No/Lack of public turnchats. Lack of a schedule (i.e., save is played every 4 days at 8pm EDT). Lack of alternate "positions" or groups to participate in. I'm not a good Civ4 player/The game's level was too hard for me. Don't have enough time to post/play. Lack of fun side-games (RPG) Other Dead? We're not dead yet!
