    I think @Stephen should let his friends know that they're always welcome back if they really want to make the forum better instead of just whine like they always did. Well, except maybe a couple.

    I don't get the 'childish behaviour' and 'derailing' criticisms since both those things were common way back in the peak years of 2001-2003 when we were getting over 500 posts a day. In fact, I think they may have been even more prevalent back then. And I'd say both those things were much less common in the declining years of 2006-2008, when almost all the new posts and discussions were very humourless.

    If @Bluey says so, it must be right. He's been on this forum since you had to write your posts by pencil and paper and send them in a stamped addressed envelope!

    I am glad @Bluey remembers it how it was. In the original days of the forum nearly every post no matter how good was always derailed. Also the childish behavior and clique behavior was way way worse but a much worse group of humor less people.

    The reason is seems low now is in the BTE period and just after nearly all original forum members left and a lot of new people came in. It was busy but there wasn't much personality on the forum till all the new era of members for comfortable. This isnt even the worst low.

    Also I remember having to post your threads in and Andrew Ellard would put them online using his typewriter. If he didnt like them he would just send you a envelope full of spit back.

    the forum itself is no better, or worse than it's ever being. I dunno why cloud is on about humourless people, the people on now are just as humourless as everybody else there's ever being on here, as far as I can remember anyway

    I haven't been on much myself recently because real life is busy. Would love to be on more often.

    Why's @Ant E gone quiet? He started complaining about the lack of posts and then stopped posting himself.
