Why are these forums so quiet these days?

Postby Kharz » Thu Oct 09, 2014 2:37 pm

I feel like when I bought my 2100 that these forums were very busy

And how they are so quiet; how come?

Also ... 6 or 7 years into my 2100 its still AMAZING. Beautiful and everything works brilliantly

It has been very quiet for many months now. Some have moved on, some are now posting more on NB and/or AHA forums.
But the beautiful people are all still here.

Glad the 2100 is working out for you!
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

The "forums" button on the main page is in a goofy spot in the lower right corner of the main MoreBeer page, so that might hurt us. Also... Facebook and iPhones and iPads are using up a lot more of people's time in general these days. People who once were on computers a lot are now dicking around texting their friends and posting pictures on FB. Also, most hardcore homebrewers tend to hang out on NB and AHA these days. It's just the way it goes. Years ago, I spent a ton of time on the old Green Board and the BN board. Those are both pretty dead now too. Even BrewsBros, which was built to replace the Green Board, is pretty dead. Another part of it might be that people are tired of talking about the same old crap over and over. We, as a species, tend to try to learn what we can where we can, then move on. There are few exceptions.

I agree to that, most are going to the handheld smart devises and using FB. I don't think I will go that way, I like to sit down at the PC, relax and have a homebrew.

I've been here since I found the place... Been hanging around ever since and learned several nice tricks to make my beers better. I'll be here until they turn out the lights and tell me to lock the door on my way out.

I had forgotten about the Green Board and BrewsBros - I used to go there many, many years ago when I first got started. Then I settled here.

I'm not posting much because I am ashamed I have not paid up on my beer-debt to Nate yet. Got the beer and the box....just lazy....no excuse. :oops:

On a positive note a fake IRS return has been filed with my SSN so I have all the hassle of the Identity Theft movie without any of the fun of crashing cars on busy city streets. :x When the IRS tells you it is going to take a minimum of 180 days to straighten out you know you are in trouble.

Man, now you are blaming the IRS for not shipping my beer...good thing we don't play you this year or you would be in a deep hole.

Just kidding man, that sucks about the IRS, one of those worst nightmare deals.

I pretty much stopped posting here 4 or 5 years ago because this forum all but dried up back then. The AHA forum is where I reside now. Much more active place to talk homebrew and beer. If you want more brewing talk action, I highly recommend going over there.
Prost! - Keith

Been there several years ago... While we were establishing credit, someone else was bottom feeding and opening accounts. Took us a long time to get it straightened out. Sorry that you have to go through the crap now.

Yeah .... thats fair.

And yup; i was all greenboard and this board back in the day; but have been less focused recently on the boards

I still brew a bunch ... planning on kegging my 20 gallons of pale ale this weekend and doing a nice stout next weekend.

it is stunning how well my 2100 has held up the test of time. All of my other brew equipment has eventually broken down after years of use; but Morebeer overbuilds their products so well ... that they never break. Heck; my pumps are still working ...even when they get the occasional soaking from water / wort.
