I don't really blame you for inactivity and trolling really wasn't the right word, my bad. I don't feel like arguing either as I understand your position and it's really not my place to tell you to be more active. It's just that this place is getting a little dull lately and a amount of your late posts are like "some comment OP's stupid bla bla,LOCKED". I'm pretty sure that if the forums were more lively moderating would be more fun and you could for a change engage the conversation as a fellow member rather than the mod locking and banning stuff. And yes it's pretty easy pointing fingers when you don't have much to point at, in this case community or staff, and pointing your finger at others rather than yourself is easy too, yet I'm sure a healthy amount of members want to contribute here but find it a bit difficult to do so. Mods/Admins should help create such a friendly environment. I don't mean to say HTS is bad at doing this, but there's room for improvement.
As of acevic's lecture, in my humble opinion, from the outside it looked like the staff was slacking off and didn't care at all...(putting Goatboy's will to help aside).
But past is past, whatever, my suggestion is to post a official/unofficial topic with the tittle "LECTURES ARE BACK!!! NEXT WEEKEND" or something, providing enough time to generate and observe interest, and also preparing/testing technical aspects. Of course with the lecturer's approval. As for me you can place me to the attending list right away of course.

I think I have a phone number that belongs to him, but I'm not sure; I plan to call it in a few days. Still, Goatboy's personal life is his personal life, and I'm planning to, for the most part, let it be and decide himself if he wants to come back.
I'm not sure if you were addressing me or the forums in general but I agree(who doesn't?), it's his life he can do what he wants with it.
