    I dont know if anyone else is noticing but webmasters seem to be not going to forums as much these days ? i can remember seeing the big forums packed all the time , but no matter where you go its getting quieter , even DP is getting quieter even though its still busy its not how it was.

    I first thought maybe people are going to the smaller sites and are more wide spread but this isnt the case either.

    Whats your views on this ?

    Don't have a clue either..In my opinion, I think webmasters nowadays don't pay that much attention to socializing, as before. This could be the reason why forums are getting quitter by the day. Probably site owners focus more on working at their sites/blogs, promoting them through various ways of advertising, than spending time on boards..But maybe I'm wrong...:)

    Alot of the problems have been caused by the Forums themselves becoming un freindly!
    I wont name and shame but it seems now we get questions asked by newcomers and the less experienced that seem to constantly get the reply "dont be lazy use google"
    Thats just not helpful!
    Also the quality of answers seems very poor, is it that those who know dont want to share for some reason?

    Having said that there are still some very good freindly,knowledgeable and helpful Forums out there( and here of course!)
