Could very be. Maybe what used to be fresh and exciting has become old. Maybe other venues should be explored

I didnít get to read through all 7 pages, but Iíll say my participation here has declined due to football season. I coach middle School football so 6 days a week, Iím doing that and when Iím not, Iím with my family.

Also, ALL of my grilling posts are out here. I donít post anything grill related there as those people donít understand my Weberitis like you guys and gals do.

That being said, I have a good post to put out there. Iíll go do that now.

Iím still here visiting multiple times a day but I rarely post pics of my cooks anymore because they are usually the same old cooks Iíve done for a while now and when I do grill up something new and exciting I forget to take the dang pictures. I donít Facebook or any other media, just watching what happens here.  I think even though I have all seen the same pork ribs hundreds of times I still feel inspired to fire up the grill and hone the skills I have due to those same old pork ribs. My nemesis this summer has been beef short ribs (Dino Bones) trying to perfect them, sometimes doing them multiple weekends in a row but only because of the inspiration found here.
I donít collect as much as I used to as I ran out of room but I did find a nice red head yesterday. So I guess I just need to pull out my camera, post some pics and hope I inspire someone else to light a fire.

Iím fairly new and didnít really post much before, but Iíve really kinda disappeared from this place lately. As someone said earlier, I also have a 3 and 1 year old so time has been scarce.  But I did just score a brand new in box 18Ē WSM and a brand new in box 26Ē kettle in consecutive weekends for half price each! Iíve really wanted both of those for a while now, so Iím pretty stoked for that.  Iíll check in more for sure.

Time being scarce has been a problem for me too.  I've been swamped with work and a bunch of other stuff plus we've had several bouts of rainy weather here so I've been eating out more from being away from home, not cooking anything of note, or been rained out and not firing anything up outdoors.  My participation level unfortunately reflects that.  Hopefully things will settle down and change for the better once I'm off the midnight shift rotation that's coming up.

Facebook serves it's purpose but will never replace the archive of information and ease of access through searches available here.

The searchable archive of posts here is incredible. 

Thanks to the mods for putting in the work to keep it going.

Much appreciated.

I agree decline for sure, funny how I have said to myself the same thing.
I would post cooks or comments and no action from anyone. It kinda seems like a popularity contest or high school like if your clicked up with the cool crowd. Just seems like a hand full of peeps remain active and comment on each otherís post. I would always see my boy Darko when I initially joined and now is MIA hope heís alright. 
I STILL LOGG IN and check but it seems like the same old boring posts or same old questions. Sometimes Iíll get lucky and see something cool or some people like to just post and show off their unique kettles and kinda brag about it. But anyway maybe Iím just hating!

Not going into specifics but you definitely have a valid point.

Sometimes the forum is busy enough that some posts and comments go unnoticed. Thatís ok and do not get discouraged. Iíve had several posts with no replies and several with. I donít think it has anything to do with a popularity contest. Just the natural ebb and flow of the forum from time to time.

Also just because a post or comment gets no reply does not mean it was not read or impactful to someone.
