Unhappy Anyone notice how slow forums became?

I dont mean slow loading, i mean lack of participation, nothings happening for hours, then 1 reply to one thread.

Remember Overgrow? Youd make a thread and within 10 minutes thered be 20 replies

Social media...

I'll always be a forum visitor for the benefit of searching for info or tech.

i'm sorta venting about something similar elsewhere. that all the older members have left or they don't post often. the only ones that do post are newer members want their hand held and reassurance. its just not the same anymore. tell someone they need to read more and they cry, get upset posting a bunch, then the other new people will surround them pandering to all this. someone else i told to come over because they thought it was slow said its a bunch of whiners so yeah there are more posts but quality is down the toilet.

Overgrow (RIP) had plenty of regular down/slow times, especially on the weekends/holidays, especially during Summer.

Honestly when you sort by new it's only 10% cannabis related. The rest is just insane people and their bizarre political opinions...

Blame instagram, the home of instant gratification and internet nut swinging. I also blame outdated forum platforms that failed to capture the interest of newer and younger growers.

Plus it's legal now in a lot of places. Cannabis culture has changed for better or for worse, but it's mainstream. A forum dedicated to growing weed will be like any niche forum, while social media will cover the large bulk of posts. Personally I made it about a week on instagram before I deleted my account because I felt stupider just reading their posts. If you want instant responses from a knowledgeable person, they have consultants for that now. I know for me the days of the public forum might be winding down, this is the only one I frequent with any regularity to be honest. But I'll keep coming back as long as there is quality posts and people.

And honestly. My fuck ups turn to gold so much the thought of fuckin up don't even bother me. So I keep it auto when I'm stepping through a portal. I know that sounds strange but, strange beats normal.

I spent most of my days on three forums.
Knife making, Pontiac Fiero, and here.

Old and retired, arthritis ended knife work, reflexes ended crazy driving, but the photo threads here kept me even though my garden retired a couple years ago.
Coincident with legalization.

But I post so much less now. It is difficult to take the hateful speech seriously at a site dedicated to getting high.

Without that true vitriol directed with belligerent hate we will never compete with the pure social sites.

So I stay and sometimes when a post of deliberate falsehoods and attacks get through to me?
Why, I get up and have another hit and all is well and I snicker at the idiot.
Beats the heck out of stressing the dumb stuff.

Less but friendlier, let that be our motto.
