Given the move of most people to other forms of social media, it seems like the need for this forum has reached its limit. The number of people accessing the forum and posting on it seems to become less and less every week. Now's your chance to voice your opinion. The poll is open for 1 month.

Just for the record, I don't have a burning desire to shut it down. I was mostly trying to gauge whether it's a waste of effort to keep it running. Smile

Hi Dave. You've done a great job here and I only wish more folks would visit and stop using ever-more intrusive and security-prone social sites. I really dislike the FB machine and all it's flaws, plus I also appreciate your time is valuable, too.

Well...if you're not burnt on it and folks are paypal-ing enough $$$ to keep it going, I'd say keep it up. While volume is way down from "back in the day" for the reasons you've given, it still has real value...starting with the group that is too smart to use Facebook (myself not included, although I'm ready to pull that plug). This site is also a "go to" when there are late changes to events, questions about specific autocross subjects and is likely a landing point (thanks to google) for those new to the sport.

I want to say again that the effort you've expended over the last decade plus running this site is really appreciated! Smile
