To be fair I'm not desperate, if it takes a year so be it. Am I right in thinking most that do log in are Kent based users?

It is sad. Not sure whats happened to the forum. Don't think people liked it when it turned blue.

There are quite a few Kent based groups on facebook which can be found quite easily. You could try posting there.

Sad that there was a outcry of people when Ade said it was closing. Sad that Paul had to invest time & effort & probably money to take it over & then those same people who cried out then didn't support him. I cant imagine its free for Paul to run with hosting etc...that's the sad bit.

Its a fact that its not the same Forum it was a few years back & I'm sad to say that if I were Paul I'd close it down Sad

When I first joined it was lively. Sometimes got burnt for things I posted, but hey ho we move on.

Loads of online forums/email lists/etc have been hit by Facebook, but also people becoming more aware of how they're just being used by FB for data mining etc but they're also too socially tied into it to leave - unlike less social able/willing folk such as myself who really doesn't miss FB.

Luckily Kent Trails also post rides via email and G+. I kinda like G+ because it's not as popular as FB so easier to avoid trash content.

I've been using STW more recently, but it's not local enough. Never felt the need to use STW all the while Sketchy was lively.

Oops bit of a thread hijack.

I wonder if it is the proliferation of groups on Facebook that results in more lurking rather than posting because questions/issues are discussed without the need to post. I guess what I mean is where there were fewer forums and groups it was harder to find information whereas now you scan forums/groups and find someone has already posted.

Can anyone point me in the direction of these Kent fb groups please? I haven't been involved in group rides for years. I'll probably be the fat lad at the back now
