- Is this forum quieter these days?
I seem to remember the oldest post on the front page was never less than 1 hour fresh and that you could post and reasonably expect a few replies even in the darkest depths of 3 or 4 in the morning. Now we seem to be getting to 9 or even 10 am and there are some 8 hour posts still clinging on at the bottom of the page. Is it just me? Maybe I’m looking a bit too favourably at the past now that I’m an old man etc etc?Posted 4 years agoorangeorangeMember
From a personal perspective this place is an absolute mine of information,but as mentioned above it does come across as very middle-class and at times almost elite-ist.I’m of average intelligence but occasionally have to Google what the hell some of you are talking about,and I mean terminology not technically !Posted 4 years ago
I’d honestly rather view than post,as the typical reply % seems to consist of 15% helpful debate 15% agreement and 70% immediate high-brow judgemental smugness.
Its almost like certain people revel in being the first to belittle a new post on here,Noel Coward had nothing on some of you bitches!
N.B believe me I checked those percentages totalled 100% far too many times before posting,and almost auto-spelled Noel as Neil,imagine the irony of that !tyrionl1Member
Lots of ‘old style’ forums are quieter, although this one seems perfectly busy, Facebook ‘groups’ and ‘sales’ pages have eaten into a lot of the traditional forum territory. All but killed another forum I frequent, a bunch got fed up with criticism of their posting style so they just set up a ‘secret’ group on Facebook where you only get invited by each other, kind of reverse moderation.Posted 4 years ago
