We are missing some long-time 50+ posters.
SKT showed up for a bit recently
And many others??
The 50+ forum is approaching our 5 year anniversary - it was started in August, 2004, amidst a fair amount of grumbling and mumbling, but it got off the ground.
As I have watched the 50+ forum over the last several years, it is interesting to see how the forum evolves from time to time, and how folks come and go.
Sometimes humorous, filled with clever writing.
Sometimes serious, lots of more "intense" posts.
And, sometimes, a bit boring.
It would be interesting to know why folks come and leave, how long they stay, what they find lacking. What they find interesting. Of course this varies markedly from person to person. I wonder if there are any trends?
Some folks pop in and out, gone forever.
Some folks lurk, never posting.
We are all getting older, every single day. For some of us (me!!) that getting older has brought some differences in their bicycling intersts and goals.
Not that we should change anything. I think it is great that changes occur - makes it more varied and interesting.
IMHO, a forum is the sum of its participants, no more, no less - WOW, that was deep!!
Any thoughts on the topic??
Why did you start?
Why do you stay?
Why would you leave?
What interests you? What doesn't?
