I'm registered on a few other forums as well as this one, and it seems it's not just this forum that's slowing down.There doesn't seem much life left in these Mazda forums anymore.
No flaming from this guy.There's nothing but posts about CUVs in here. No more track days or autocross events or car meets or...anything like that. Just people complaining about their laser guided parking systems and GPS activated steering wheel warmers.
Pass down that info, lets see what the future will look likeForums are dying seems to be a popular assumption but actually I think they are making a come back! It is true that some forums are dying and those tend to be forums that are run by some massive corporation and not the founder. Another reason is some forums are dedicated to a single model where interest has been lost (and or it is out of production).
Seems to me a growing number of people are getting tired of social media / massive all-consuming networks and are rediscovering Forums that are run by founders and or owners who actually care like this one! Mazdas247 has been going strong in various forms for 18 years now because we care!
As I have mentioned, we are working on a complete overhaul for Mazdas247 and I have got a side project / test bed site that is helping me with the overhaul and might take off itself some day...PM me if you are interested in checking it out!
