I'm a member of several other forums (automotive and non-automotive), and this has easily become one of the slowest; several others I frequent are still quite busy even if they're not what they used to be.What has happened here, has happened everywhere really. Far too many social media sites to visit, where people budget their time. Once upon a time, when there was no social media, we used these forums for many purposes, including to learn and entertain.
Members that used to have inside info and post tidbits and breadcrumbs have left, and there's only a few "regular" members left, some of whom rehash the same points in every single thread, which results in the same discussions/arguments in every topic, which drives everyone else away.
I didn't even bother creating a Ford Q2/June sales thread because I knew it'd get like 3 replies. I did post my chart in a thread someone posted, but only because I already had it created.
