Is it me or are the number of posts declining here? Do I need to adjust my settings or is everyone doing something else?
Thanks,
Curly

The forum is experiencing ongoing connection issues so it doesn't surprise me that the activity is way down.

It appears that posting has been down for a long time. At one time it was common to have 5-6, or more, pages of posts. Now it's usually 2, maybe 3.

There have been a lot of connectiin problems recently.
In spite of the problems, I still think it's the best RV forum on the net.

.......

Yep, long time and still declining. And the season or time of year has little impact on it. Been discussed a number of times over the last few years.

I think a lot of folks are migrating over to group or pages on FaceBook and Instagram.

Bingo

I'm seeing the same thing on several other forums that I belong to.

There were several months, especially earlier this year, where, no matter what was posted, there was a rash of bashing going on. Not just bashing the subject at hand, but actually bashing the poster. This is why I dropped off for a while. I noticed, beginning around January of this year that posts were way down. OK, so maybe I went over-board, but decided to post responses on virtually anything I had some kind of personal experience with or first hand knowledge, regardless of how many time the same subject came up in the past, or who was asking the question. Anything to keep the forums alive.

It seems the more I posted the nastier some folks got. And it wasn't just me, it was some other folks too that were getting hit pretty hard. Moderators didn't make any sense at that time, seemed to let thing slip through, were deleting that that didn't make a whole lot of sense.

On top of that, the forums themselves have been having problems for quite a while. There was the Captcha issue going on for the longest time (which I've not run into for quite a while), then later the on-going "An error has occurred" problem.

Then there were those posters who gave their formal "farewells" to the forums for many reasons including, their age and giving up RVing, selling their RV and not replacing them, personal bashing, connectivity issues with the forum sites and issues with the forum sites. Others seem to have just quietly stepped aside. I think folks are reading the forums, but are extremely reluctant to post anything for negative rebuttal reasons.

But, you are correct. Activity (actual posting) is way down.

Meanwhile, die-hards like myself keep coming back, keep posting, keep putting anything on here to help keep the electricity turned on. I'd hate to see these forums completely die because of in-activity, so I'm doing my best (even if I am long winded!)

I know I'm migrating to message boards that actually work. The number of error messages and general problems here is ridiculous.
