Go Big or Go Home
I still pop by every now and then, but admittedly its just to check out the gig log. I would post, but what I have to offer has very little relevance to what is being discussed.
Very true Mark, technically the site is better, someone is regularly feeding the hamsters that run on the wheels that power the site...and great new features have been added. This only makes the answer to the question ("What has happened to this site?) even more interesting. In light of all that's changed, why hasn't this site experienced a resurgence? To me, and if I'm reading between the lines correctly (and I believe I am), I'm not alone, the answer is painfully clear. What's responsible for the lion's share of the decline of this site hasn't changed. Why hasn't anyone openly stated what that is? Good question, which speaks directly to the problem, which hasn't changed.Ok so let's bring this site back to life. I think the site is the fastest it's ever run and has more features so possible promote it on social media site. We have links on every thread that let's you share on FB and Twitter. Let's create new threads daily and keep the threads going daily.

The world is no longer impressed by something just cause it's "better"....
What they want is something that is NEWER.
Once a "thing" is replaced by something new...it has lost it's appeal.
There are new website like MobileBeat.com coming out all the time...
and people always wanna jump on a new bandwagon.
You asked why the site has not seen a resurgence.
I'm not getting how your analogy fits. There are plenty of user forums that have had minimal negative impact from Facebook and many have benefited from it. Facebook and User Forums aren't mutually exclusive nor redundant. People F L E D this user forum. It started as a trickle and then beame a mass exodus; it occured at a very specific time frame, in response to some very specific events. -Z-
Yeah! It could be many here are full of bookings and just don't have time to check in. My slow month is here - November I only have 3 events total this month. Similar for January with only 4 events booked. December is much better.I think it is been busy. The economy is better, more jobs and less time to lurk around the boards. Technology has also made the toys of the trade less complex. How many new lights and features can you talk about? This has been my first visit in awhile.
I hate to break it to you, but there is a lot more than just the "technology aka the toys and lights" to talk about, and those other topics are being discussed on the two other busy mobile Dj forums and the 100's of mobile DJ facebook groups.I think it is been busy.
