    What happened to this forum?

    I only check in here very infrequently. I don't own a jeep anymore (I have a buggy now), and many of the long time members aren't on here anymore it seems (I am a day one member).

    I always click "new posts" when I'm here. Today I see there are only 10 posts total this year. 3.3 posts per day?? Really?

    So what happened? This forum used to be so active, with lots of new info. Is it simply just that theres better forms of social media? I think the ease of posting pics on FB is a big killer of most forums. People love to show what they built and wheeled, and its not as easy when you have to use a photo hosting site to post pics and video. Being able to upload pics and video straight from the phone only makes it easier.

    So is it that? or?

    I always get flamed for stating the obvious, so I will just get some popcorn ready instead...

    I've wondered that also. I assume it's because of Facebook.

    Banning chased all the cool kids away. Now it's old and boring like me. They want to keep it family friendly. Which is cool. That way your 6 year old can get on and get info about lightbars. Blame Facebook if you want. But that's only a small part of the problem. Nate seems to be the only one posting runs anymore. And he's considered to be an "outcast" by some here so even his posts are down. Thanks Nate. Keep it up. The women on here are doing more than their fair share of posting runs. Thanks ladies. If you want people here make it fun again. Post runs and events. Quit the inner bickering and lighten up on the rules a little. Or we can just die and blame Facebook.

    And here I thought you ridiculed me for being banned when I was. Sure, I'm not as cool as most, I drive a Libby after all.

    This:

    "I think the ease of posting pics on FB is a big killer of most forums."

    Imma be on FB anyway because that's where the kids and people with other interests post. Might be time to figure out a way to automatically cross-post forum entries to FB like ThumperTalk does for dirt bikers.

    Besides, all the lightbar info is on FB.

    It's tough to launch pics from my old 286. Can't find the floppy disks anymore.

    They have taken all the old floppies and are recycling them for the save icon's in other software!

    LOL! Doubt anyone even knows what you're talking about. I started on a 8086. When a 10k hard drive was large and in charge.

    Yahoo group reflector was killed off by this forum.
    This forum is now being killed off by Facebook.
    Eventually something will kill off Facebook.

    Def due to FB. I hate the FB groups tho. The same questions get asked over and over. Its disorganized and pretty much a chit show.
