    During my few years of collecting, ive tried to get everything I possibly could. But as of recently, Ive had a hard time controlling myself with collecting. Its not that im feeling collecting burnout, its just because I cant stop searching. So Im going to buy one last thing, then leave collecting for a bit. I know ive met a few people here, but majority of you wouldnt care. I will return eventually.

    More power to you, I can't count the number of times where I've thought to myself "ok, I've got most of what I want" only to think of a two or three dozen more new things I want to collect after a few months.

    When you start collecting for the sake of it... it's actually hoarding. If you can overcome that, you're pretty strong. Many would just give into the addiction.

    I don't intend on selling anything yet, but rather, play more of what I have instead of collecting more. I think that is a start.

    Bought that final item, I will be active for 2-3 more weeks (Till my final item comes) then, put up one final update to my collection pictures, then Im going to be inactive for a while

    It's gotten too expensive. I'm waiting on the Saturn Flash Cart.

    I hear you. I have 8 consoles and almost a hundred games sitting around waiting to be played. Most of the time I'm so overwhelmed I just play nothing so I sold two consoles recently. I'm honestly debating on just selling it all and give up gaming.

    That doesn't mean you need to leave the boards! I've been collecting very slowly in the past few years, sometimes not getting anything for months or for a whole year, but I still love to stick around here.

    I don't collect anything.

    Collecting isn't a requirement of being here. That said, posts saying you are leaving a forum just cry of attention seeking.

    Well, I feel if I stay I would be tempted to buy from the FS thread. I am just going to leave.
