Hi Jon,

The old forum was dying anyway, as are the majority of online forums. This has happened since the upsurge of Facebook plus the many other social networks. I actually have a forum on my website and while I got a few visitors over the last four years, I have never had one single contributor. That alone told me Forums were more or less becoming a thing of the past. It's not working at the moment, I'll have to try and get it going again sometime. Not too bothered though. But there will always be people who prefer to use forums. My post was just a was request as to what was happening. Anyway Mark, keep it up as you will always get old buggers like me checking in every time I log on.

I don't agree that Facebook and other social media are replacing forums - maybe the social functions, but facebook as a source of information is useless, you cant do search on topics and the information is not structured at all.

The majority of people who use social media are not interested in search or research. They only want to "post" "get a reply" "re-post" and so on. Then on to the next topic and on and on!!. Yesterdays topics are history and as such seldom resurrected, so no need or want for "search". Unfortunately some of me friends only post photos on f now which makes it very difficult to locate them when you want to check some point or other.
