I have seen that happen also, and I should probably just leave it alone (correction will leave it alone). However it still makes me want to start a Inn page on Facebook that will direct everyone here when the search for it there.

I am posting here and there, too.
There I get likes. Here I get comments. A single good comment is worth more than 50 likes, I feel.

Hell yeah!

Words are much better way of communicating, there's so much granularity to the sentiment

Yes, the problem is that many people do not want to register to a new site. They use facebok and instagram more and do login with the standard FB password.
There are several groups on fb with some people posting interesting works too. I don't know how they could stay away from places like the Inn. But this is the evolution of the species.
People use phones no more computers. FB and IG apps offer a better experience than surfing a forums by using your phone.
I see lot of forums are missing people's posts but more and more are moving on social networks.
This forum, the Italian forum, the Spanish forum, even th eOldhammer forum and many more... they all look like people are no more posting. SAD.

I'm one of the few on the planet who does not have either a Facebook or Twitter account.
If a member would like to create and manage either for us, let me know.

Per the conversation I had with drathe this morning we are considering starting a Facebook page.

Is there anyone in the community would like to help create and manage a page like that?

PM me

Yeah I like the forum better than any facebook group. It feels more real and personal.I hope people continue to post here even if there should be a fb group. The Inn rocks! :D

By far, this is the best forum I've found through the years. Many of the other forums I've read (for various interests) have far too many people talking down to newcomers or have know-it-all people looking to argue. This really is the only forum where I'm even remotely active.

My only issue with this forum is also one thing I love about it: there's SO much to read! Having just joined, I feel like I'll be spending a ton of time just digging through the comments, which is fine by me! :-)
