I've noticed that a lot of the regular posters that stayed after the first bunch left have stopped posting... getting real quiet around here... not an awfull lot going on to keep the good/experienced players interested... like the listening forum - you should have to comment on at least 3 other posts before being allowed to post anything, otherwise your post gets deleted. It's just full of once off posts and no feedback - big difference from before where everyone was interested and wanted to hear other members and there were up to 10 threads daily.
This is one of the main things causing the reduction in participation IMO... been here for over 1200 posts myself but I'm starting to get disillusioned now too... Anyone else notice this too or is it just me? Hardly any of the old instructors or mods post at all anymore and the really talented players seem to have gone too - did I miss something when I was away?
