    How many posts do you have to have to be considered an "old forum tart" then?

    What do I ride? Now that's an Enigma!

    Sorry EMD, I'm persevering here but it's really not working for me. :cry:

    Not sure I can hold-on much longer...

    I'm getting used to it more and welcome the "new blood" so to speak but like Fb Foodie, i'm persevering rather than relishing.

    I seem to find myself not bothering with most sections other than Race, can't even remember when I posted on Cake Stop and Soapbox which used to be my most regular haunts. I may post one or two replies but nothing like previously. I can't really get into cyclechat either. I have posted on ACF for a while and that has remained constant as it is good for audax, but there ain't the same 'feeling' as the old C+ although I have met some really great people on ACF.

    C+ used to be my "home", whereas now I fell like a bit of a squatter in various places where I feel as if I am transient. :?

    That sums-up my feelings entirely. I've really lost/missed that C+ vibe and the alternatives (good as they are) just don't quite give me the same "fix".

    Race is pretty busy right now (the most active bit of the old C+ forum), but how that will fare when the TDF is over and the nights draw-in is anybodies guess, Cake-Stop and Soapbox are quiet backwaters and I've lost my enthusiasm for Beginners and Know-how.
    I'll squat a while longer.

    I kind of view it as moving house or, probably more like, a newly built estate: new people are moving in all the time, everyone's getting to know each other, no-one knows if it's going to be a 'good' place or a 'bad' place and it's still being built. The local amenities are good, but still being built, and will only be as successful as the use and contribution we make of/to them. It's more like a community than just a forum, IMO, and offers a lot more than just a forum.

    Even the ex-C+ers that come back on occassion's the same as moving house - you tend to return to your old haunts for a while until you get used to your new home.

    I like change. I think it's, generally, a good thing. I'm enjoying watching the BR fora evolve and grow - as evolving and growing it is!.

    Speaking of in-progress construction, there will be more changes early next week, like a quick reply box, among other things

    Does that mean that I might just occasionally manage to make a post without having to log in a couple of times? (y'know ... slow one finger typist, looking out of the widow, make a mug of tea etc. etc) :wink:

    Ahhh....this place is getting better. Quick reply box and easier to navigate through the options on the main page. Hopefully things will start picking up a bit more now. Maybe we'll even get a few exiles back!?
