Brian can spend your money for sure. :P When I first started here I posted in the technical forum more than anywhere. (I was working in Dave Watson's office at the time and really wanted to see this place take off. Mathews was our best sponsor even back then, in my opinion.) I don't think I even ventured into the "NonArcheryForum" until several months in. At some point, anything one posted in the technical forum would be contested. (Sometimes even by the original poster whom had asked for help in the first place.) It got to the point where any advice one could offer was going to get beaten down by someone. While I had somehow managed to escape the flames myself most often, I still stopped posting there as I figured since everyone was already an expert, there was not much need to. ;) That's around the point where I discovered this section. Once upon a time, there would actually be some topics in here about hunting with other weapons; not just topics about everything and anything other than hunting. Forums definitely have phases. People just don't stay around forever. These days there just is no influx of new members coming in to replace the departing. I had been saying this was due to the new wave of social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) for years. (Running a forum myself, I saw it first hand. I saw the deep level of integration that my forum software producers were implementing between it and Facebook for example.) It has gotten to the point where you don't even need to register an account on my forums. You can just login with your Facebook or Twitter credentials. Anything you post on the forums can automatically be ported to your Facebook/Twitter walls (and vice versa) as well. In other words, even I began to wonder, "Why bother coming to the forum anymore? I can just do it all on Facebook or Twitter." There's just no way that a new (white) forum skin and a clunkier interface alone took this place down. It had help. I, for one, am very interested to see what the next "big thing" will be. (As surely some day Facebook and Twitter will be as dead as MySpace and most web forums.)
