Yes, Facebook is the main reason - people moved their discussions there and it is easier to
get all your news on one platform.

There was a very special community here and the forum is still important in peoples minds.
People do check in now and then. After all it ment very much to many and I am very
satisfied I decided to start it when I saw the need - it was worth it. After all it resulted
in many strong friendships, and even a couple of marriages and children :D

Sure was a special place back in the days.
Even though Facebook pretty much killed it, Facebook has not been able to be the platform for the kind of discussions once had here on this forum.

Shouldn't we maybe push the forum through a bit of a revival using a modern platform along the lines of Discourse? Another forum that I'm part of also recently revamped their whole image using Discourse and it really works a treat. We can then invite everyone who we still have contact with to try and get the community going again.

I'm honestly not one for Facebook and very seldom talk to anyone on there...

It's a modern take on forum / community software. It takes a bit of getting used to if you're accustomed to phpBB or vBulletin, but once you've got the hang of it, you'll wonder why you've been without it for so long. Maybe some new energy behind the community will entice the old regulars, and some new blood, to get things going again?

Hey, I'm back. Had some browser / password issues, but they seem to be resolved.

As to the subject being discussed, I've been returning to message boards, because facebook's interface for discussions is awful. Additionally, every music "community" is just people posting youtube links or spamming their bands, with no discussion going on. But more than anything, the atmosphere has become increasingly toxic.

So, shall we give Discourse a try to see how it pans out?

More than a month now with absolutely no activity. I fear the board is truly dying now. :(
