I think the damned hackers caused this. Maybe participation will pick up. As for me, until I retire, I'm going to be mostly unable to load and shoot. I hope that is resolved soon

Is the new forum still up? I get an unsafe notification from Chrome since it isn't a secure site (HTTP instead of HTTPS) and if I click past that a 404 (not found)error.

No it is not. Morten dumped it I think after so many problems. Just stay here and enjoy.

I know that back in 2004 when I joined, there was way more traffic here than there is now. There are a lot of guys that no longer post here, for whatever the reason. Sure miss some of them. mtmuley

I also communicate with a forum on Facebook and I wonder if that is a more modern format thing. I just don't know. There is a younger crowd there and I think it's an instant gratification thing.

A lot of the "regulars" haven't been around in a while. Check out the member list and when people's last posts were. Usually slow in the summer anyways.

For fact, this is not the only site which is experiencing a downturn in participation.

I concur. I've noticed a downturn on all the sites I visit (tho I'm ASSUMING there's no cause-effect relationship there).

I Moderate at Graybeard Outdoors Forums. There has been a significant downturn of use there as well.

I note that in casual use Cast Boolits seems to be going strong although I have not been there sufficiently to make an "authoratative" assertation with regard to their continued "health".

Other comparators from your observations of other sites would be nice...

I hardly check in anymore. Just seems that the forum was dead and I had other things to do. Just being my honest.

I've never saw a hearse with a luggage rack....

I try to check in about every other day. I'm STILL learning a lot form people who are doing/have done things I haven't tried yet. Once in a while, someone gets snooty, or they catch me in a particularly prickly mood (sorry when that happens). and I say something abrasive. I try to keep it in check, most days, though. Feel free to point out when I'm overly abrasive. Nobody's "self-monotoring" mechanism is infallible.

God bless Jeff Cooper

Gratefully, as a Site Moderator on another forum, with "attendance" down, it is easier to stay ahead of any avalanche. In the "hay days" and so much going on at one time, it was quite often a few days before the volunteers could attend to every little detail. For the Users, of which I was one at the time, it was sometimes frustrating to ask for moderation only to hear nothing in a timely manner. So I volunteered and when accepted took on responsibility a little bit at a time, then later a whole lot. Getting one's feet wet as the "New Sheriff in Town" is significantly easier in the famine rather than the feast.

If it was easy, anybody could do it!
