What's happened

Recommended Posts

10 years later I have revisited the first club I joined. Where is all the chat and banter?? 

This club needs serious revival. 

STUM450N and his true grip, Kim and her cronies, where has it all gone? 

All I can now see is The Don...... still posting pish microfiches up that don't help anyone. 

Hardly any posts in years. 

This forum used to be booming and brilliant. 

Get it back on track or it will be gone soon enough...............

Welcome back to the forum. The forum has lost many of the members you mentioned for a number of reasons including them not owning Scooby's anymore and have moved on. Forums and Websites have been hit over the past 5 years with the rise of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as a means of sharing information and chit chat. I agree the traffic is nowhere near what it was many years ago but it is still used by our members and there are sections you can not see unless you are a member.

Well Im a reasonably new member and have had some decent help (and some banter!) on here ... I didnt see it in the 'old days'.  My only comment would be it could be a bit more user friendly, social media sites seem to 'flow' a bit better ... just a thought.

In what way does social media 'flow' better ? 

And in what way is forum not user friendly ?

Personally I like the forum. Things are structured and the search is great when you are looking for things. I appreciate the draw to social media, we do after all have a presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram :D, but the heart of the club is still the forums especially for members who have unrestricted access to all the forums.

I have spoken to many people about this and many say they don't sit at a computer as much as they used to and find many social media apps work great on mobile devices. I find the forum just as accessible on my phone as it is on the computer and the IP Board have done a great job of making the forum mobile compatible.

Totally agree. The mobile version works great although I think I'm running a different version to your on m-soc

one of the major problems is people tend to use FB as the Internet these days. 

I prefer a forum, the search facility is far superior. Try finding a post on Facebook from a month a go, let alone a few years. The click bait on social media is getting worse, the irrelevant nonsense and spam is increasing almost daily, news feed full of dribble etc etc 

The way topics can be organised is far superior to FB etc. Relevant matter sorted into the correct area, easy to find etc 

Social media is certainly not the way to run a club :thumb:

Hi, I only use the Forum on my laptop and I just find it hard to find threads sometimes in comparison to the likes of Twitter where everyone can see a 'post' then groups can be created to discuss things in further detail, just my thoughts for what its worth ... I know I can rely on Scoobiefloz on here so I dont feel totally forgotten haha :) I know my cars but maybe computer tech is not my speciality!

I will make sure the all new topics I put in the forum are shared with Facebook and Twitter so you will get notifications. You are then simply one click away from the content what ever device you are using. For some reason this feature was disabled :huh: 

Twitter: @subaru_drivers

Facebook: @thesidc
