Sorry nightfall I don't meen to judge or tie everyone with the same brush and yes your right there was some good members on here too but those members like yourself do still contribute just maybe not as much as before.
I'm just getting a bit fed up with the comments on here about it being dead and TT is going nowhere etc. generally by people who maybe have an axe to grind with the current team.
Yes it's quieter on here but commenting about it being dead isn't really that useful.
Fair point, I guess me getting feed up with the old community being referred to in such a way is on par with you constantly hearing that the forum is dead. Sorry if it seemed like I was pointing that just at you, it's just I've only just noticed this topic (I though Future Developments meant it was about Alton not the forum
) and after reading the whole thing in one go I just felt the need to take the defensive.
I do think though that those who refer to the forum as dead do have a point although I think damaged beyond repair to its former self would be a more accurate term. A lot of good contributors have stopped doing so and it will take some convincing to get them to start posting again. They might not have removed their accounts but I don't think they've posted in the last month. I'm sure the site will recover but it won't be the same, so to them the site is dead and I guess that is what some of the less extreme posters like Doopy Dan meant by the term.
