[quote=618170]Wrong, tech is much more interesting than disrespecting anything anyone said that one didn’t agree with.
If it was truly a passion of all of you that left, then why do you just abandon something that needs support? THAT is what I don’t have a clue about, because I’m not a quitter.
If you truly have a passion for the sport and the forum, which seems unlikely, why don’t you rally your troops and make it a FUN, HELPFUL place to be. The archery community wasn’t, and isn’t envious of bashers and quitters. I know we don’t agree on much, but I think we can agree that abandonment doesn’t usually lead to rebuilding something we believe in. That is what makes me sad.[/quote] Obviously if we're posting here, then we aren't the ones who 'quit'. That said, if I had to speculate (or rather,
to speculate), I would suggest that for several with whom I've chatted and read things from here, it boils down not to the issue of 'quitting', but instead the question of
'why remain on a sinking ship?'
You can insinuate all you want that you're not a quitter, but assuming that you're not currently engaged in all the same activities you were when you were 5 years old, then your life, too, is full of things that you once participated in but no longer do. As for this forum, we can give every explanation we want to, and offer every excuse under the sun; we can tell people that the forum is still plenty useful, and that even though maybe the functions aren't all the same, most of them are there in one capacity or another...but the fact remains, the CURRENT FORMAT IS HARDER TO USE AND LESS RELIABLE THAN THE PREVIOUS DESIGN. Like Brian (sticks), this used to be the very first place I would check when I had a few minutes to be online. This is now the last place I look if I have time and have scoured the three other forums I visit. To me it's like Thanksgiving dinner. There's always going to be a reason to go home for Thanksgiving. If you're going home because you can't wait to be there and visit with family that you enjoy being around, then you're going to spend every possible minute there that you can. But if your Thanksgiving table tends to be one where the conversation is saturated with political disagreement, criticism and the like, you'll go because you know it's family and you need to at least put your time in and there are a couple of people that you really do want to see, but at the first available moment, you'll bail because it's easier to not be there. This used to be the Thanksgiving dinner that I had to force myself to leave. Now I check in because there are still a few that I want to keep tabs on. I keep hoping that it will feel like maybe it's making forward progress, but in reality it's not...
