You haven't been around long. Can't explain it but I'm drawn to life histories. In particular their cause and effect. This site was once very popular, it's demise is a result of what went on before it. Knowing what causes the results is what interests me. If I had to sum it up it was because of a play ground mentality. There were once people here who formed a group that many on the out side tried to enter but because they didn't kiss those in the inner circles arse they were ridiculed. When those who held power were shown for what they were, childish, they picked up their toys and left.

The whole shallowness of the affair has lead to it's abandonment and unless I am wrong, I don't believe I am, the whole cycle will start all over again. It is an interesting life cycle that your seeing the beginning of. Some of the old play ground bullies are still here, just for fun see if you can pick them out.

Another huge reason is this site is put together by people who can't computer program. It's always got problems.

As mentioned, this used to be a BIG and very active forum but these days it's a ghost town.

It seems that the only forum that still stays busy is Archerytalk

I have heard and not sure that the HNI people are writing a book on how to run a website in the ground. First off, ban all top posters. Second delete the most popular forums, and then bring it back. Yea, that will teach everyone. Then make it the slowest forum on the net.

I used to post all the time here, there was a lot of stuff happening in all the forums and you could almost feel a connection to the people. Many people called each other by first names and such. I left right around the time they switched to this new company. This place is nothing like it used to be. No where even close. I got banned once, kinda like a purple heart if you ask me
