Quiet Forum?

Unread post by Greg W C Sims » Mon Nov 08, 2021 7:47 am

It seems the forum has gone very quiet after the emergence of the
thermal video footage. Has the mystery been solved and we`ve all moved on?

Gday Greg

I have a theory as to why..........

With the emergence of other platforms such as Facebook (Meta), YouTube and all types of groups and other individuals making their time up on these platforms. As great as these platforms can be, unfortunately the forum cops the brunt of it, a lack of participation of sorts. Things such as hits, likes, and comments seem to be on these newer platforms and or its just an easier convenience to share elsewhere.

There is a wealth of information on this forum however and as with anything members come and go looking for added info wherever they can its still a vital part of AYR.

Just my 2 cents.

Hi Dion

Thanks for your reply.

Some valid points you have made there. I suspect that the lockdown has a lot to do
with it as well as not many people are out and about in the N.S.W bush.

Hopefully the forum will fire up over the holidays when more members are out and about.
I will be heading to my hotspot which I haven`t been to for over 18 months so that should
be interesting!

I suspect you could be right in that thinking also.

Good luck with your hot spot.

I want to start promoting the forum on my podcast unless anyone has an issue with that?

No objection from me. See who wants to go old school.. heaps and heaps of information squirreled away in the vaults of this forum.
