Default I'm sad to say this place seems like it's dying a slow death

It was chugging along with occasional posts that got a lot of responses until the whole crash back in December or so...and then finally after much hope it came back....and seems like what little was keeping it going before the crash pretty much ended it.......we go for days with pretty much nothing....I watch for the Ukraine updates because I know people over there who are in the fight.....but it seems like it's pretty much done for Mustang or car interest. I can't be the only one who thinks this place is on life support? I would love for that to change. Met a lot of cool people here. Is it the cost of gas that killed us?

Still here, itís the only forum I still regular. Everything/one seems to have gone to the social media platforms I think.. I donít really do FB so this place is my online entertainment for the most part..

I still keep posting my mustang build thread updates, but there isn't a ton to post at the moment. That will be a slow burn. I don't post a lot on any social media, but the only thing that I'm really thinking about today is The Ticket and how another good on-air (sort of) talent is leaving because Cumulus doesn't pay SHIT!

Still check daily when slow at work but mostly lurk. Was some talk of sending a mass email out to let site members know the site is back up but don't think it has happened yet. Is needed IMO.

Sadly bringing/keeping a forum active is a losing battle in general these days.

that mass email could 6 months before it gets done! the death of this site was because it took too long to get it back up and poor communication on Facebook letting us know what was going on with our beloved forum

The Canada collapse and mass exodus was epic but it sure didn't help. How many people DIDN'T make the transition over to the new site?

I've checked this forum multiple times daily since I joined but I hardly ever posted because I know no one here and it was always so cutthroat that you couldn't post anything without getting killed.

Now it's just a group of geriatrics that wish someone would give them a hug. LOL

Plenty of peeps come and go all day and night.
Just seems that no one posts. We may have talked about everything there is to talk about. I'll be here til they shut the lights off again. I will probably never join any of the big three SM sites, I really don't care to see what people are eating or where they are vacationing at...

I tried to get the admin to send out a mass email but he wouldn't do it. I'm sure it would help. How many people that were here before the downtime, know it's back up?

Some marketing to attract some new people wouldn't hurt. Just mimic the garage journal.

To be fair, Tyler said it's a good idea but he was/maybe still is going through some shit... give him some time. This forum only exists cause he's a bad ass.
