The problem is the ease of access of phone apps etc which means Facebook groups becoming more popular. It is a pity because the forums have a wealth of info and relatively easy to find what you want to find.
I know for myself that I always have a phone on me but only at a PC at work, often not with enough time to browse...

well guys i have till the 16th to decide weather or not to keep this forum going. Thats when the hosting will expire. Ive had this forum going for 5 years now and i need a long hard think if i will bother investing any more money into it.

Nunga, if the forum was active I would happily donate for another year as it was cool having a section in my name. However, I agree that it's looking a bit pointless if the interest is not there. A real pity. Thank you for running it over the past years. See you on Facebook.

Ive decided to keep it going another 2 years...I use the email that comes with it quite a lot and cant be bothered to change that...so we are still here for another two years.

Good on you Nunga. I must admit I've been so busy with work I have resorted to zoning out on mindless tinkering, and try not to spend too much time in front of a screen.
Trouble with FB is that it is like mindlessly flicking through the pages of a gossip magazine. I miss a good active forum.

I have to admit that I much prefer forums to Facebook but I think we're onto a loser. Every forum on which I'm a member is dying (maybe it's me??), with everyone moving to Facebook. Have you ever tried finding something posted last week on Facebook? The search function is crap so you end up scrolling for what seems forever. As this is an airgun forum maybe we should make some Facebook targets SmileWink

Thanks for keeping it going. I guess FB is easy especially for chit chat. People have it running on there phone all the time.
