    keeping up. In the 5 minutes or so to type a post, there would be 10 other new posts come up and existing ones being posted to. Is it because of other boards?:shrug:

    Two hours without a reply........you may be on to something. Or, the same type of 'where is everybody?' posts came up last july when everyone started to do their summer things and I noticed a huge lack of traffic during your good folks' thanksgiving holidays (ours is the second monday of October). It'll probably slow down till after Christmas.

    I agree, seems alot slower around here than it used to. IMO, there used to be alot more new tech around here, when EFI/T5/AOD/R&P were the newest rage. Now that that stuff has been beat to death, there isn't so much new stuff to discuss. I've seen alot of people come and go also, some I miss, others I don't. Just the way it is I guess. Just think how slow it would be if people actually used the search feature before asking a question? Can you say tumbleweed?

    I hear ya'. I havn't even been here that long and I've noticed things slowing down a bit.

    Talk and classified forums are especially stagnet. Have you ever looked in the V6 fourm? The only thread they have going is titled, "V6 forums are dead" LOL

    sure am glad to have stangnet though.

    Then there are a few other factors.
    It seemed most of the posting occurred during the dead of winter for one.
    Also we were all inspired by the adventures of the GBM.
    Then we had a tighter group which is now minus SuperDave and a few other "instigators".
    Then all of our posts were together in one forum (Tech and Talk) and we all pretty much stayed with it whether it was tech or talk.

    A certain big blue fuzzy closet monster and his 3' walking monocular sidekick? A rabid toe-humping Christmas cookie? The lump that left the couch?

    Don't forget the master of Cheapness, and a few other characters we had back then. It was indeed a zany time!

    It may be time to re-visit some of those incredible threads of yore.... (Like chepie's topless thread, the grandaddy of them alll!)

    ah yes, the good old days when everyone we knew was a post whore just because we could. IIRC when it would get really slow someone would start a really stupid thread like "hey it's 2:00 am anyone awake?" kind of stuff. nobody really does that much anymore, possible exception being this thread if it lasts long enough.

    I have another theory... And for those who frequent boards, prob. will dicard my theory.. But....

    Maybe people are actually starting to use the search therfore, not needing to post repeat questions anymore.. ;)

    ..while I'd like to think that's true, its probably not :nonono: :p

    The same old questions continue to be reposted over and over....my theory is that the indulgent long-time Stangnetters who used to regurgitate the same answers over and over are tired of constantly retyping the same stuff.

    I read alot...but dont post that much....

    Maybe with the constant increase in price of these cars, we are getting fewer and fewer new owners...

    with the same rate of attrition(spell check) but fewer new members-

    ??? I just made that up but it sounds good in theory..lol
