Well the forum  is up & running but why has it been resurected ?

 

yes there have been a few posts but the silence inbetween is deafening !

 

In fact it's quieter on here now than before it shut down , so was there a point in restarting it ?

The reason we closed it down was due to it becoming dead with the rise of facebook... people appear to be quitting fb due to recent reported data breeches, issues with trolls and sick of it.

All as we need is a dozen people chatting to get the activity flow going.  Let's see if it picks up over the coming months.

Also, people are now starting to realise that facebook groups can be helpful at the time of asking questions or looking for something. But they are not easily searchable so information quickly gets "lost".

Also, the problem with forums, they become search engines as the question has likely been asked many times before and therefore the information already there, hence why we see a lot of traffic but few posts.
