    We are in a communication paradigm shift. And, with all such shifts, one either crosses the divide or gets left on the receding plate.

    {#emotions_dlg.mathews_nerd}Could you repeat that in English please?

    That’s a good point.

    I find myself visiting ALL forums far less.
    Facebook/Twitter has killed internet forums, IMO. 

    In a world in which virtually everyone views time as being valuable (even those who seemingly have an endless supply), one must ask themselves if they care to post messages to a select few online friends on several different forums they visit or post messages on Facebook; just ONE place where most all of the same people from their favorite forums are also members, PLUS their families, co-workers, tons of old friends from school, numerous related businesses/companies, and countless others, who will ALL see what you have to say in ONE click.
    Frankly, the choice is really so simple that it’s not even much of a choice at all.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    I dropped facebook a couple months ago, and have never looked back. I cut my time on this forum by a ton a couple years ago. For me, this forum changed personality a while ago.  I can handle format changes.  But, it is the people that truly make or break a forum, organization, etc.  I do not fit in here very well anymore. Please do not take that as a slam against anyone. I have met some top notch folks that are members here. Each of them are considered dear friends of mine. I do drop by each day to check out what is going on. But, I usually do not log on.

    I must have missed the “PC stuff”.  “The personality” has certainly changed here but that’s not one of the changes I’ve noticed I guess.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    It certainly isnt the same without the regulars that were always here day in and day out!  I still check in quite often just because I have learned so much here over the years that its hard to let go.  But not only was it a good place to learn and exchange stories, it was also great for a laugh and a quick pick me up more times than not!  I certainly do also miss the antics of Big Al and Neil

    I’m about done also.
    Might check in now and then but this site is to slow and all it does it make me {#emotions_dlg.mathews_mad}
    I’m fine with the looks of it, just not the performance.

    I’ll have to agree with Al and Micky on this one. I just look here once in a while. And this new format is too slooooooow.

    It’s just not as much fun here anymore.  Seems like people are more easily offended than in the past which seems to lead to more arguments.   Even the talk of how much fun was had in the “old days” even stirred up some.   The forum used to be full of good hearted jokes and jabs much like a close group of friends would do if sitting in the room together.  Not so much anymore. This new forum isn’t helping me visit anymore either.  It’s all around slower I can’t seem to get my iPhone to make a post without lots of trouble.

    It’s all about choices.  Mathews made a choice to change the formatting, I have made the choice not to visit the forum as often.  I used to visit the forum a couple of times a day now just once in a whole. It started out when I couldn’t  retain my old log in. I know it’s my fault for not being as technically savvy as most of you guys.  Being 58 I didn’t grow up with computers e everything I have learned I have struggled and taught myself. Again no hard feelings I am just not willing to invest the time to learn this system . To all the friends I have met over the years thank you for the help and camaraderie. See you down the trail fellers. Hook, at least that is what my old log in was.

    Think I’m about done here as well.  I can’t even describe how much I dislike this new format / color scheme / etc.
