Cheers, Chief.....I was almost worried you wouldn't show.  :)
Hope all is well with you and yours.

Sorry to hear that. :(

Hear, hear, let the truth be told.

Hats off to our Canadian friends and neighbors. :) 

It's almost time, Chief, don't forsake us this year!


As you celebrate another year of Thanksgiving, please don't forget what you did to my people as you trample one another for discounted electronics. The Swayson Tribe will have their land restored to them, as sure as the night is vanquished by the Sun. This battle will not end as long as oxygen fills my lungs. I believe that right will defeat wrong. The sins of the past will be on display for the world to see. Stand with my people. You can be on the right side of history. This land belongs to my people. We will never give up. Join me and spread the word that the Swayson Tribe be returned the land that is rightfully ours!

Thing is, since you did that, other posters have done exactly the same thing too, at least a half dozen times or more. ... Problem is though, with six different offshoots you don't find six times the number of posters between them.  Everything has become ultra 'diluted' to the point of exactly what you state happens: They essentially become dormant, or if they're lucky maybe have a small handful of posters left.
Yep, I think you nailed it: dilution. 

Forums were a lot of fun to run back in the day, but now they're mostly a boring commodity item. Even for niche interests there are sooooo many to choose from.

Pick any make or model of car, for example, and there are probably 50 forums devoted to each one.

Plus, sites like Pinterest and Instagram have supplanted stuff like photo sharing which used to be a major draw for a lot of forums.

So yeah, I think in large part they're history. There will always be some but the quality dropped as the quantity increased. More isn't always better.

Well, as far as my opinion on whether or not to continue the guest sub?  I'm neutral on the matter.  I mean, if it's an extra hassle for you to keep it going, just turf it.  If not?  I guess no harm in leaving it active...

Nah, it's no trouble but SOP is that when something dies, you bury it. :) lol

I'll leave it up unless something changes. I think forums in general have run their course with some exceptions. There are still active forums out there but I see only a fraction of the way things used to be. I'd guess 80~90% of all forums are mostly dormant. I don't know but I'd guess that a lot of people have moved to Facebook or whatever. And, maybe like everything else, they just have a lifespan and then they die off. I don't know.

Still in Kent?  Life is well?

I've been around here from the minute you split from DV, if that gives any indication!    ;D
Not in Kent, but life is good. :)

Did the forum hags from next door get to you recently, TehBorken?
No, I'm just wondering if it's still worth it to continue this particular forum.

Excuse me Mr Borken but if you close down where can I deposit my holiday ode.

I don't know. Perhaps membee or some other anonymous board?

Hmmmm, then maybe it's time to shut this down. I've left this one open so you guys can post here as you like but if that's your take on it, then there's probably no need for this one either.

I've stated this in the past:  The forum worldz do not need another forum with three whole posters!

The current state of affairs are bad enough as it is...  Last thing needed is another half-dozen shit forums appearing on the scene.

Will you eventually emigrate? Good luck with your elections. I'm learning Welsh.  Cofion .....last word.
Mmmmm, maybe. I'm re-thinking the idea of moving there....this last trip was fun but also pretty wearing.

The heat and humidity were dreadful. The traffic in and around Phnom Penh has gone from "mostly okay" to "mostly awful". There are about 10 times the number of cars there used to be...the roads were never meant for this many cars and it shows. Prices for nearly everything are going up up up. Land, food, rent, clothes- all that stuff is still pretty affordable, but definitely more expensive than they used to be.

On the upside, the general infrastructure and economy have improved significantly. You can buy almost anything you want with a few exceptions. Still can't get a decent bagel here for love nor money, lol. If Amazon delivered to Cambodia, life would instantly become much better.

The availability of medical care has improved a lot but is still kinda spotty. The new developments like Diamond Island (see another link here) are super upscale and as full-featured as anything you'd find in North America. I probably couldn't afford to live there, lol. There are also loads of new malls that are the equal of anything here.

There's also construction of new buildings and infrastructure everywhere...every street has something being renovated or built new. In 10 or 20 years it'll be amazing. There's also a new airport in the works and the old airport has been fixed up quite a bit too. There are finally places you can get a decent burger (and lots of places now exist where you can get great pizza).

A lot of stuff is still "faux" some of the chain burger joints have menus with 50 things on them, but when you get there they only have 2 or 3 of the items available. The rest is "No have..."

So I don't know...I'm reconsidering, but it's still very possible that we'll move there someday.
And that's the last word on Cambodia. :)

In Phnom Penh? Wow is my last word.
Yep, we bought it and are hoping to buy one of the houses next door to it as well. We'd cut a big doorway and have a nice sized place. And that is my last word.
