I like the changes so far, Ed! I'm going to try to post here more often, instead of just lurking. emoticon

Re: We get the traffic, why do so few people post here?


The truth that I have found is that many people we thought we here for more, were really only were wanting a suit. We kept them talking and a few friendships stuck, but on the whole people came, people found, and people left. Instant gratification was what it was always about even back then for many. Those many found people who created a product for them in facebook and such that is all about instant gratification. Unfortunately instant gratification is hollow and look what is happening to a whole world who now practice that and only that.

Re: We get the traffic, why do so few people post here?


I have been lurking for years! lol

I need to start getting back in the swing of things here. This place was my first taste of true costuming wonder.

I have seen many people come and go in the last 11 years.....and I still stop by and see whats going on from time to time.

Long live the BOTB! :batfly

Re: We get the traffic, why do so few people post here?


I am still here... life is just so hectic at the moment (two kids, two jobs + studying my bachelors degree) :confused

I do wish I could post something but the truth is I have nothing to post... I draw a bit but that is hardly relevant to post :ohwell

I do like to read here and would be sad to see this place disappear (I have been here since 2005)... I will make a bigger effort to comment here :coffee :batfly

Thanks Brian. Yeah, we all have a lot on our plates. It's hard to keep the passion for this stuff sometimes. I know I don't do a 10th of what I used to do these days (with this stuff). Heck, I bought a 5 gallon pail of latex for cowls and armor 2 years ago. I haven't even opened it. (keeping it "factory sealed" until I'm ready to use it. Right now due to major back problems I can't risk lifting it)

Re: We get the traffic, why do so few people post here?


I know that, for me, it comes down to time and focus. When I started this hobby,
 a long time ago, in a galaxy... uh-oh... wrong forum! Anyway, I had one small child, and lots more time. Now, I have 3 sons - one in college, one in middle school, and one in elementary school. Add to that work, keeping up with a household, and trying to be a decent husband and father, and I don't have a lot of time to post anymore. For me, it's just that my life responsibilities, as well as a few other interests, have taken precedence, and hanging out in the forum has had to go way down on the priority list. I would like that to change, and maybe it will someday, but for now, I have to settle for the occasional fly-by post to let you all know that I'm still around.

The other side is that I haven't done anything new or relevant in so many years, that I don't feel that I have anything to contribute but maybe some encouragement to new guys/girls putting suits together.

I love to check in here, but only do so once or twice a week, sometimes less than that. I love the fact that so much of what people do in this hobby was pioneered right here! This group really set the standard for Batman, as well as other heroes, costuming, and I am really glad to have been a part of that, even if on a very small level. I will always be in the shadows, and will post when I can or have something to contribute. I will try to make a point to post something every time I get on here from now on though...

Don't think it's any fault of yours, Ed. The changes you've made are fantastic actually. Social media has just become too convenient for many. It's already hard enough to keep up with Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Add in a forum where posting pics is kinda clunky of a process and it's just hard to justify that extra time.

That's just my opinion as to why it's been tough to get traction here again. I certainly hope we can reverse that trend.

Yeah Kev, I expect you're right but I keep hoping people will gravitate back. I was actually surprised it didn't happen when assbook had that data breach a few months back. I'm not sure why people are so loose with their personal info.
Still, I really don't see why people can't use both. The stuff here, photos etc (except for what photobucket pulled which screwed all forums) stays here.
I need to see if Runboard offers a photo hosting option yet. (I did suggest it a while back).
Get the word out though, regardless, we'll be here (as long as Runboard is).
