About a year or so ago when a topic was published it would move past page one within an hour or two unless it attracted comments. Now, it can take all day for a topic to migrate from the top to the next page. This tells me there is not as much action on the site. Has member interest been lost? Have interesting members been lost? Or, maybe there is a lack of interesting and new topics? Do you agree that this site has changed?

I gave up completely on LJ’s some months ago, but I’m starting to look back in. Not very often though.
I used to be hooked.

I agree DKV.

Some of the thrill is gone.

I agree.

I think that everything that can be said has already been said.

I noticed too. I remember back a year or so making a comment that it took something like 20 or so pages to scroll thru just one day of the pulse page. On todays pulse page you get thru one day in only 7 pages.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the fall. I think that the summer time can be a time when people are doing a lot of other things.

Yep….the same questions asked, and the same answers given…A bunch of the “old members” are gone, cause the fun was gone…There was a time when this site was fun, people argued, disagreed, discussed things, argured some more, and had more fun…..They either quit LJs, or was kicked off…Folks didn’t like the Lounge, but that’s what made it interesting, to me…..Now, it’s just a website for…..never mind…!!!

I agree Rick…now it’s about nuthin’ but wood stuff. Where did we go wrong? One would think you could get a good Polish argument going on a woodworking site. Like, what did the Polish guy say after he cut his thumb off?

I’ve been a member now for 5 years, and I’ve seen quite a few changes…..some good, and some not so good…and like you said, now it’s just wood stuff…It’s a race to see how many can post their projects, and score as many hits as they can…..I know people have to learn, (we all did/do), but you learn by watching videos, reading magazines, books, and then go practice, and more practice…..Some of these “newbies” want you to give them all the answers….kind of like school….I’ll do the test, if you give me the answers…..

Well, for one thing it’s is a pain in the ass to read through a topic to see ”you can’t comment on this topic because you have been blocked.”.
Maybe the site got taken over by liberals. They’re the only ones who block me. Seems like they just don’t want to discuss anything they don’t agree with. Well, them and the “gun control” crew.

Actually, I just don’t have time to post much anymore. Too busy fighting for my life trying to make a living in this dicked up economy.
