Yeah facebook def killed it but what we need to do is figure out the primary advantages to a forum that facebook can't provide. So stuff like build threads and DIYs etc need to be more frequently posted/updated.
I still check dd often though...

It would be nice if there was a forum support app or something. An app where you can link it to your forum and easily update your builds and respond to threads as well as upload images instantly. Anyone an app builder and can build such a thing? Thats basically the problem. Facebook is easy. The down side is Facebook eats content and is hard to navigate back to old content you want to view. Thats where I like the forum - to be ale to reference material quicker instead of on Facebook where you have to scroll till you find it.

example of why people post to Facebook - here is an image that I need to find on my computer, upload to photobucket or whatever you use then get the link and copy it into a new thread or response. You have to have the forum open and logged in, have your photo app open and logged in then upload the image, copy the url, go back to the forum posting and click img and past the url. Yeah its not hard but opening an app on a phone and clicking a button is so much easier and makes this task seem so archaic! Plus with everything else were used to having autocorrect and you dont get that with the forum. add up to many little things and it becoems a big deal.

I really miss more content on the forum as times on Facebook gets flooded with friend and family sappy stuff. I liked opening up the forum and spending a good hour just viewing and reading carporn.

Joe you make very good points. I think activating Tapatalk will mitigate most of the issues you brought up. (BJ Please activate Tapatalk! :)) So now that access is theoretically solved, we need content and web traffic to view/post. After I get some free time after new years, I'll post some cool car porn stuff that I have saved as well as interesting topic threads I have in mind.
