New board keeps logging me out.
One day it happened 6 times in 15 minutes.

Or maybe it's TEO messing with my head. :dunno:

Busy, mainly, but it doesn't seem as active around here :dunno: I lurk and scan, but not a lot to say. Too little drama - we must be getting old and just don't give a shit anymore :lol: I'm sure it will pick up a bit again come festie season.


Pretty much for this reason....

I think it's a combination of a number of factors...

- Social media where you can tailor who you hear from and who you don't.
- Switching to this hideous new board and losing 50% of the old functionality.
- Threads of interest being moved to areas where nobody goes.
- Certain people overposting, making the board seem like it's 75% content generated by 5 people. If you've started half the threads on the main page, you're overposting. If you're in a group of people talking, and one person is doing 90% of the talking, you don't stand there listening every single day wondering what the person will say next.

The search and post edit features are also awful!

for me, this place represents a time and place in history. 10+ years of history, some of it wonderful and some of it cringe-worthy...but all of it mine.

but i come here lately, and i don't see much that resonates with who i am today, mostly because i'm just not here to make it mine the way i used to.
and as much as i love so many of the people i have encountered through this place, made good friends and even met my husband here...in the time i was busy doing other stuff, this place moved on, and so have i, i guess. the inside jokes aren't mine anymore, if there's drama i don't know anything about it (ok, now that part i like) and there are so many new faces that i don't recognize that it's kinda like going to a cocktail party and walking into a room full of strangers...i'm ready for fun, but it's daunting when i don't recognize most of the faces around me or know what our common ground might be.

and i know that in a few weeks, with our first festival of the season under our belts and the memories of it for post-fodder, things will seem a lot different and we'll have more to talk about. and i look forward to it. but for now, yeah, i just don't have much to say, i guess.

I haven't been here long enough to know any way to compare the boards to what they were any more than about 13 months ago, but if there has been a lull lately I think there's a number of reasons, certainly I know number of people are not comfortable with the new board itself. But also this time of year right now there is kind of a lull in terms of winter concert season is pretty much over and festival season hasn't really gotten into full swing yet, for a community of people that is based on live music it's hard to have much to talk about when there isn't a tremendous amount of live music happening where most of us live right now. A lot of the major tours either have just ended or haven't started yet or they've swung out of the Northeast region. Course this is just a theory of mine which may or may not have a basis in reality :lol:

One other thing that I noticed also is a lot of people who were posting a lot weren't working either at all or at least weren't working full-time, and a lot of folks who were in that position have been lucky enough to find work recently. I don't think it really takes the absence of a substantial number of people to make the boards a lot slower, I bet it just takes 5 or 6 people not being able to come on here to make it look way slower.

it wasn't, though...sure, some people posted a LOT of content so it might have seemed "busy" but it takes more than that to make a community.

and anyone who's been here for any amount of time at all knows that functionality is lost for a short period after every single board move we've ever had...and there have been a lot of those, especially in recent years. it's just a matter of time before this place looks and feels like home, at least for those who choose to post with any sort of regularity.

i also agree with what you said about people changing during the off season...and maybe sometimes struggle to find a common ground on topics when a lot of us havent seen each other since last year...in which case that will rectify itslf

given your camp's record I would don't know if I'm comfortable with anything "rectifying" :bowl:

as long as it doesn't involve any inflatable cetaceans I'm willing to see what happens

90% of the chatter is by 15 people. Lots of reasons why, but people have left here and just not come back. I only check here once or twice a day now, mostly out of habit, and there's usually noting really noteworthy for me to spend any time with. No sense in political discussions, I already know the opinions of the 15 people who are driving the postings. No sense of posting about events because nobody really seems interested anymore. Etc.
