    You might ask why is there nobody here anymore? As far as the other sub forums, I always have visited them, tried to add some content. Its good for the forum, helps build community. Honestly, the OC has grown stagnant, stale. I have mentioned it before. There needs to be a certain refresh rate and its lacking, the status quo won't cut it, people have a short attention spans when it comes to certain subjects. Variety, it is lacking, unless you count the predominance of schoolyard humor. The most popular thread in the OC is about what? That's right, bikes. Well I can read about that all over this forum, while many people just see that thread as a "good ole boys" club or elitist. That's what happens when a couple of handfuls of posters populate a sub-forum, it gives off the wrong message. Time to cast a wider net, step up the game. That or just shut this sub-forum down as it is no longer relevant. Would be a shame to see that happen, time to do something to turn it around me thinks cause this surely isn't working, the OC is on life support. Just my two centavos.

    So much down talk about OC from you D$. ..and yet you are still here, keeping a watchful eye over things. The overseer.

    Every time you say this, you put another black eye on OC. There's plenty of new things going on here and plenty of old things too, it's not "stagnant". There's gonna be down times in activity when some of us have responsibilities to see to in order to have free time later to enjoy this later. Not everyone can be here all at the same time.

    Frankly, I'm shocked that you would want this to ever end, which is basically what your words above are saying.

    And I can only hope that what you really meant is that you miss some of the now dead personalities we once had here.

    You miss the entire point of the post. The OC does well enough acquiring black eyes on its own and if it cant stand some constructive criticism then there is no saving it. Let the decline continue.

    "constructive criticism" on an ongoing basis is degrading, not "constructive". That's the point of my post.

    People get busy. People move on. People start over. It's a circle of internet life. It does no good to read more into it than that.

    Two sayings that gets me through tough times is "I do the best I can with what I have" and "I never did mind about the little things".

    I don't know that I would call the trading of NSFW gifs "real talent". BTW, got any good NSFW gifs? Or a meme. I'm jonesing for a good meme.

    Nope... I stay here when on the interwebs.. I like it here. When I am done with the OC for the time being, I turn off the computer and go outside and play.

    Yeah I don't think the O.C. Is in a steady decline as D$ has suggested. I just think it goes through it's lulls. It is currently in a low but I'm confident it will pick back up soon as it alway's does. Sometimes a thread like this gets members to post more rather than lurk about.

    For along time I basically gave up on other forums I used to frequent consistently. But during these low times in the O.C. I get out there more often. What the heck even in my short visits elsewhere I can pick out a troll or two and reveal them. as I'm sure some of you have came across. I guess what D$ said getting out in the other forums is a good thing to boost moral especially in the General forum. It seems to be an over abundance of green horns over there. Spouting off anything and everything to get some attention. And the same ole long time regulars that no matter what you say they get off on challenging you on it. Oh and the ones who abuse the rep system as a way of boosting their ego. Yep the General forum has it all except a laugh, hell it's like you need the Jaws Of Life sometimes just remove the stick most have so far wedged up their arse.

    Yeah I've noticed she's giving us all the cold shoulder. Unless of course we are in the bike thread. Even then it's like twisting her arm to get a response. Are you hearing this Nicky we all miss and love you get YO butt back in the mix and stir the pot up.

    Wow, DJ, tell us how you really feel about the GD.

    To add to what you've posted above, I move out into other sub-forums that interest me EVERY SINGLE TIME I'm on EB and I post replies when I can say something that applies or helps.

    Those sub-forums include the following (but are not limited to):

    Brake Time
    Drivetrain
    GD
    Shocks & Suspension
    Weight Weenies (for a good laugh)
    Where are the best deals?
    So Cal
    New Hampshire (stalking, just kidding I never go there)
    Pivot
    Shimano
    Specialized

    How about you guys???

    I venture out a little, sometimes.

    So my wife is in the living room, and she's eating a Reeces Cup®, and I'm in the kitchen getting a spoonful of peanut butter. As I'm walking to the living room, she gets up and heads toward the kitchen. We nearly collide in the hallway. I says to her "Hey, you got peanut butter and chocolate on my peanut butter!"

    This is not a true story.

    Sound's like a delicious collision and maybe a little extracurricular activity may be in the works.
