It has been a bit quiet of late.

Don't know how to fix that. Posts for the sake of post counts? Clique banter? Tons of "nice gun" only replies?

Must be something else.

Having been a member here since the early days, I initially liked quite a lot about it.i thought it had potential as I had felt that some of the people involved had been unfairly treated by those that ran the two main forums. A spell of nastiness toward those forums was disgusting & detrimental --- but was eventually eradicated. That and a hard to believe bad deal with a member on here were the catylists to me stopping contributing. I haven't really changed my stance, although bizarrely I would like to see this forum thrive & compete equitably with the two big boys !

As mentioned before on similar threads, most of the folk on here are old hands, whom I'd suspect are out doing stuff, rather than sat around talking about doing stuff. Life's too short.

I come in most days, but as I just haven't been interested in shooting for a couple of months now and unfortunately I don't have much to say or to contribute to anything that has been said.

I check in every now and again, sometimes comment, other times just read. It is quiet but that is more a reflection of membership numbers than the forum itself. It takes time for forums to grow. Look at how long the others have been going.

Didn't we have this same talk about inactivity last year?

I've looked through my post history as I vaguely recall contributing to the debate at the time (the outcome was that the open hostility towards other AG sites was ditched) but I can't find anything about it. Has the thread been deleted?

In any case, we're still here. Which is good.

I like my air pistols and I check in on a lot of different sites. Last year, the pistol section in Airgun BBS went almost two weeks without a single post. I created a thread asking if anyone was home and it became the busiest thread they'd had in months. Funny how the most activity came out of discussing inactivity.

Which, sadly, might happen here too.

When even those who were instrumental in setting the forum up are conspicuous by their absence. I think the writing is on the wall :(
