    Ghost Town

    I took a ten year break. This was a fairly active forum back then sad to see it not as active. Where is every one ?

    People don't care about discussion anymore. Quick answers, someone to tell them they can put a unicorn tang in a biocube and drama are all that matter

    I lurk in the background. I dont have a FB page or anything like that. I was wondering if there might be a way to stimulate activity. There seems to be some action on R2R and PNWMAS. Has anyone looked into what might be different?

    I know I get almost a daily email blast from R2R highlighting current activity on the threads to try and draw me in.

    Maybe a coral grow out competition or something?

    I dont think a give away is necessary or anything like that. Just something to engage people.

    I think the videos can be made private on YouTube. Possibly show a screenshot from the video on the reef frontiers title page but create a thread with the video link that is only viewable if you are a registered member with more than 50 posts or something like that.

    I may be talking to myself at this point, but while this forum has been “open to all” its always seemed that the majority of folks are in the Pacific Northwest so it could be done I think.

    We could even do videos with local shops that sponsor. I wouldn’t mind sitting down why Cy from barrier and talking about his store display.

    One thing I think would be cool is to somehow incorporate YouTube.

    I know for a long time people where excited about being selected as tank of the month. I enjoy watching bulkreefsupply videos and like the videos Jake has posted on reef builders where him and another guy have a beer and talk about a tank.

    If there were a monthly video showcase where someone is interviewed about their tank it could be hosted on YouTube and owned by a reef frontiers account. With selfie sticks and iPhones it could be done somewhat easily. I know I have edited vlogs on my iPhone with imovie.

    The difference is that there was a coordinated effort to leave this aite.

    Your ideas may be great, I'm not in a place to.judge. You asked what the difference was. This site was still floating until folks coordinated an exit. No idea if it can come back without the pnw folks who made it go when it was going.

    Some folks got angry, they organized, and left. The why really isn't all that important.
