Default Use glFussion software for the site

Hi Sean

Here is my suggestion for a better site, use glFusion as you engine for the site. This is what I have been using for many years. Good support and very easy to use. Gives you features like a photo album for each user, forum, articles and much more. Go to my site and see whats there, you don't have to register to look around. I am willing to help get the site up and running and maintain it. Sean let me know what you thing, please PM me with your ideas.
Thanks
Lee

I recently posted a report on the Maine Fly Fish forum, I didn't even bother post it here. To put into perspective how more active that site is here's the link to that report:

Thanks for posting the link. Well worth looking at your Maine northwoods adventure.

Concerning your measure of activity, I am post #23 or 24 on this string. Your post on MeFF thus far has garnered 18 (a half a dozen of which are your comments to other posters). Kinda like Uptown here.

The comparison doesn't seem to bear negatively for this forum. Perhaps it is simply the title of this thread that inclines in a downward directio.

I below to a shrinking Massachusetts forum (in some ways similar to this one). However, there remain here a stalwart few die hards who still enjoy posting stories and pics regardless of the fact that trends in social media are drifting away from forum like this one.

I encourage we hold the line, and not buckle under rumor or innuendo of decline. Keep posting, and commenting. I, for one, vicariously enjoy the adventures posted and appreciate the time and energy taken to compose and construct the presentation.

To those still reading, I say thank you for your contributions.

This site is dead, since I last was in, about a week there has been 10 posts, and as I write this I am the only one login, even when you are kept loggedin for an hour. This site needs help and glFusion would produce a much better site. Someone needs to let Sean know what I have proposed.
Thanks
Lee

Default Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Lee !
Facebook has killed these sites, I preferred the website format, I only use facebook when absolutely necessary ( kids sports etc.). I am still fishing though, that will never change

happy thanksgiving everyone. I don't think the site is dead, just slowing down a bit due to ,..... life . I have got a new (better) job and is longer days .so down time is rare. with everything else we home owners have to do, with a family. I do check in ( not always log in ) and have got lots of good tips and help from people here. I hope this site will stay around for a long time as it is a great place for tips,info and help when you need it. besides , with the temps in the single numbers and the wind... fishing is not high on my list. well, not today. BUT LOOK. I am here checking it out....

One year later, and not much has changed. That's unfortunate . Bye bye to the days of desk top computer, lap tops and chat boards I guess. As phones become the way of posting more, sites like these and many others not updating themselves have lost their members to the internet ghetto know as Facebook. Too bad.

Ok, it's Oct. 5. Trout season closes in ten days. It's been one of the best falls for fishing weather I can remember in decades. Cool nights, not stupid hot fall days. Brook Trout are taking to the shores and coming out of the deep water we've had to dredge for all summer long.

Not one single post about fishing since 9/10??!!!! Did everyone quit fishing, or is it just time to pull the plug on fishing sites that aren't a "chat group" on the internet ghetto known as Facebook? Apparently so.

I can't help but remember the days a little over a decade ago when the world wide web allowed a group of enthusiastic anglers and hunters to get together on line both during our seasons and our off seasons to discuss tactics, gear and areas we all enjoyed our passion. Of course with that came the reality that we all don't see those in the same light which lead to trolling, arguing and many disagreements. Is that what caused the death of these chat rooms?

Or is it bigger than that? is it the change in the manner in how we communicated via these sites? When they first started many were posting from a desk top as I am right now. Then came laptops which still allowed easy posting, but from our beds and couches. Is it the fact that everyone has outgrown their laptops and desk tops where our main source of internet access comes via the smart phone?

I personally feel that's the disconnect. Phones while handy to find what we're looking for in a quick manner are not easy to post a long winded or detailed fishing , hunting report. Is that the reason, or has "social media" actually made us "anti social? Is too much of a "good thing" a bad thing?
