    Anybody here...?

    This used to be busy - a great place to organise / take part in meets, day walks, wild camps etc.

    Where has everyone gone?

    Kind of gradually died on its feet over the course of the last several years. Don't think there was any particularly strong reason for it.

    Think a lot of people went to trek lite when this site lacked input from owners. It hasn't really kept up to date and I suppose the lay out just isn't appealing to new members.

    Still going...but not so many 'old' faces and not much banter.

    Only ever pop in once in a blue moon these days...as others have said a lot of traffic lost due to lack of commitment of site owners. I suspect the rise of social media really killed off the forum as I know I, and many other former OMers, still keep in touch/arrange meets via Facebook.

    Waves to Taz, a bit beezy up here, hope no one's up a big hill, 40 -65mph at sea level, you'd get blown off a hill, ( up to 74mph gust now )
    edit, why's this down here, it was an answer to Taz's post.

    Not windy here Alex, very mild and a little damp.
    Yes a lot of OMers now keeping in touch via fb and treklite. Good to see peeps still post here.

    I find the new (!!ish!!) layout difficult.

    It's a tough gig - circular discussions, same old questions, cliques that wax & wane, folk too brash, folk too sensitive.

    I used to get notifications to replies to threads I subscribed to, not any longer it would seem. ....unless I need to reset / re-select something after the revamp.

    There is a section in your settings for that.

    A lot of forum traffic in general has moved to Facebook, which is a shame as I find forums much easier to use for their purpose.
