Where did everyone go?

Its been a while since I've been on here. I've switched to a SXS for a few years now. I'm on my second one now...lol This site used to be packed!! Unless something is wrong my connection, I'm not seeing any posts newer than 30 days old.

By the way switched from rzr to a teryx....so far love it!!

Facebook has killed a lot of forums.  Several Jeep and ATV forums I've been on over the years have ceased to exist.

What really sucks when a forum dies is all of the information that has been posted over the years that is lost.  Jeepsunlimited.com and cjoffroad.com both had TONS of good info on Jeep CJ's and when they went away, all of that knowledge and info went with them. 
Highlifter seems to be the granddaddy of the ATV forums, so if they do pull it a wealth of knowledge will be gone.
Facebook has all the traffic now, but there's also a lot more BS you have to wade through, and information is much harder to find.

Believe it or not but I still have this forum as my home page. For some reason, I just cant bring myself to change it. I use to spend hours on here as well. There was a TON of info and help for any problem you had and you got a response quick.
I still poke around from time to time but nobody is here. I hope they dont pull the plug, as mentioned, there is a ton of info here.

FB has killed a lot of forums.  CJoffroad.com had a treasure trove of info on Jeep CJ's and it's gone, and all the info is gone with it.
 
This site is the granddaddy of all the ATV forums.  When I'm searching for solutions this site still usually comes up with the best solution to a problem.  I hope it stays put.  Would be a huge loss of information if it went away.

Re: Where did everyone go? 2019/06/01 17:31:12 (permalink)
I haven’t been very active in the forums (any forum really) in years. I’ll log in 2-3 times a month to see if anything needs to be handled but as y’all have already stated, social media has killed most forums.

Back in its hay day, this was a happening place! We would spend hours every day posting and using the chat they had. You could log in and during prime time there would be thousands of registered and tens of thousands of guest viewers here. But those numbers gave dwindled to just a handful per day.

As someone stated, when a forum goes away, the amount of knowledge lost is huge! There are so many helpful guides in each section of this forum that I am afraid would never be recovered. 10 years ago, some of the old hands got into bad health and I am not even sure if they are still living. I know a couple hasn’t even logged in in 10 years. One of those guys, Greizzhopper, was a good friend and mentor and was a wealth of help and knowledge inn yamahas.

Facebook is such a bad thing. It was supposed to help people to communicate with family. Now it's what I ate for breakfast, now my breath smells good since I brushed my teeth, look what I dropped in the toilet!!!! Who the **** cares your your dog ate cat crap!!! It's rediculous what people put on there. Oh and let's not forget the I'm on vacation post, then they come home to an empty house. It's like hey come rob me please. I still don't have it and never will!!!

Re: Where did everyone go? 2019/06/15 06:39:55 (permalink)
I know I was on here a bit more when I was in the process of building my Sportsman, but kinda ventured off due to the lack of action here. I will admit that most of the questions were answered pretty good, but it would be weeks without new material that was of any interest to me. It is a bit disappointing to see everything go to FB, but that is the way the new riders are headed... I know that this site is a bit clunky and harder to use than FB and hits a way smaller audience. The closed atv groups on FB have been my go to for information lately just because of the traffic there. Now that being said, one as to be able to sort the BS from the good advise, but at least there is newer material that I would have the chance to make judgement.

Yeah it is sad how this and other sites have went dead, I used to come on here a couple of times a week, now I check it out about once a month to see if there is anything new. Facebook did kill a lot of it, but I do see that some of the brand specific sites are still doing ok like the Kawi, Yamaha, Can-Am Forums.
