What's happened to the CB forums lately? 2 of the others I'm on are seeing major technical issues seemingly coupled with lack of admin staff getting online to sort things & this one is working the best out of the lot yet hardly anyone posts a thing...

I'm well aware that FB groups and the like are a factor but going off the activity levels on the 2 forums I mentioned it's not all of it, there's plenty of folk persevering with those despite the fact it can take many tries to post or even log in sometimes. So what's the score with this forum, why isn't it more active? :? Surely with the other places in crisis this place should be booming...

It hasn't though, that's what's confusing to me. The site with all the issues has 10 times the activity compared to here. I just don't understand why a perfectly good working forum is left virtually unused whereas one with major issues has so many people still fighting to stay on there.

Well people are lazy nowadays, they don't want to look on a forum, Facebook has it all in one place.

I don't have gaybook.

I have no social media.

Antisocial media more like, I prefer to think of 2-way radio as social media :wink: I refuse to carry a mobile phone, facebook is a thing of the past to me too though I do go on YouTube a fair bit.
