Is anyone out there?!

Post by Sivvy » Sun Sep 09, 2018 8:33 am

It's been mighty quiet on here lately - are there any Forumites still out there, or is everyone just using the (mildly disturbing) FTA Facebook group these days?

Based on recent interviews it sounds like there could be a lot for us to get excited and/or wildly speculate about (Lost Evenings 3, new Mongol Horde recordings, new book, terrifyingly radical new side projects). Can't help but wonder if the lack of hilarious daily llama photos on here might be deterring people from using the forum pages . . .

Here in Spirit! I’m a bit more gun shy about commenting on social media these days, as I’ve gotten myself in a few kerfuffles. That being said, this is my favorite group, and I have had some great conversations here. Right now, looking forward to a few FT & SS Shows next month. Especially looking forward to seeing a favorite band of mine opening, Bad cop/Bad cop. Check them out.

shows? 90 so far...

This is a weird coincidence. I've decided to check out these forum sites today after a long while. Mainly because I found the saved bookmark on my browser and thought to myself "right, there was/is a forum as well". I only skim through the FTA Facebook page these days to be honest, because there tends to be a lot of either off topic (in my eyes) or repetitive discussion going on, which doesn't really keep my interest. Not sure I've got an idea how to revive this forum for a bit though...

But hey, you're not alone out there (in here?)

It's a shame this forum is inactive these days. I've always much preferred this forum to Facebook groups or Reddit. A nice little community, with the added bonus of Frank (and sometimes band members) contributing.

I do think the generic phpBB theme that's been in use for a while may be offputting to people - it makes the forum feel rather unloved. Perhaps a 'lick of paint' would encourage people to start posting again.

I think sadly - FB has taken over from a lot of forums I used to go on. Not overly into FB groups myself ... Like the dinosaurs these forums will one day become fossils of the form halcyon days of the internet before it became a breeding ground for trolls and hatred.
