Personally for me (and I've noticed this for my members as well) I go back and forth between being a really active community member and periods of time where I feel less inclined to be active. Just based on personal stuff & my state of mind, I could be a super user one week and a lurker another.

...And I think that's okay! Actually, I think it's good. I think well designed communities don't force people to go from lurker to active, they create available pathways for folks to become active when the time is right. So, in a healthy, well designed community, conversation fatigue for one person can mean creating space for another person to step up and take a more active role.
