There are times when things slow down. This is heading into Friday evening for most of us.
My advice is to be patient. Activity will pick up in your thread and in the Doormat. Try some of the games and socializing forums to help pass the time. Also, if you like writing head for the Non-Adult Storytelling forum.
And do what Hairy said. A new member started a thread on a game that is coming out and it really took off.
