Hello......no echo.....crickets....

Postby Guinness Fan » Wed May 28, 2014 3:54 pm

Just checking to see if this site has any pulse whatsoever....Has it been pronounced dead? If so, where has everyone gone in the afterlife??? I must have missed the obituary..........

I'm on the road quite a bit & don't have the chance to pop in, but when I'm home I like to check in... Logged in this evening & the place seems absolutely and utterly dead ~ no new posts and the old ones left unanswered. Am I the last-man-standing at the bar at closing time?

I enjoy(ed) this site for its ease of use & wide variety of topics...but it appears that, like 8 trac tapes and the IBM Selectric typewriter, it has gone the way of the Do-Do :( :cry:

Life is so sad that way....nothing lasts forever....

I still have all my old cassette tapes even though I never play them anymore. It's so hard to throw all those memories in the garbage. The IBM selectric went in the garbage the day we got a computer.

The facebook page is kinda useless unless you want to look at beefcake. Occasionally someone has an original thought, but it gets lost in the beef.

So yeah like the dodo and the dinosaurs, I think this place is destined for the ash heap.... :(

^^^ Totally agree. I haven't been able to figure out how to keep all the gay porn stars from showing up on screen. And it seems like the only thing some guys do is post pictures of ... gay porn stars. Ugh. I know many, many sites where I can see that stuff voluntarily.

Goodness, I remember how active this site use to be. There was a lot more than just the Butch Board. They stopped trying to improve it. They should have created an app for this site a long time ago...but, alas, nothing has come to fruition.

There was so much activity here. At one time, there were Yahoo group chats and that went by the wayside.

This website helped me a lot in my coming out process. It is too bad so many folks have migrated elsewhere. I think I am the only moderator left that comes to this site from time to time.

I'll be more than happy to discuss any "issues" that are raised on the FB page. In the meanwhile, posting pics keeps people coming back and checking in.

And BTW, I check in here at least three times per week.......

I check in too, though I confess that I do so less and less frequently. I checked the above link and received "Content Not Found," so I'm assuming FB is having on e of its periodic sulking issues. I miss the vitality of this place, but it's possible that the old-school message board (in itself a spin-off from the ancient-school BBS) is kinda going the way of the dodo... and not just here. It seems to be happening to many of the forums I visit.

Deck:

It's a "secret" group, so you have to be invited to join before you can see it. If you've got a FB account, send me the link in a PM and I'll do the invite for you....

I still check in once in a while.

Checked out RealJock.com.

Quite active, but most discussions get pissy.

Why does it always break down into Board rage, like Road rage?

Mostly civil here.

It's nice to see that this place has at least some semblance of a pulse...I'm a self-confessed Luddite - not on Face Book or any other social media site...and the only "apps" that I have on my iphone are the ones that came with it when I bought it.... I've always found this site easy to use, the topics of conversation wide-ranging and the guys friendly and whitty....But how to revive it???? I don't need some porn star popping up with a link.................or popping up with something else :oops:

Yeah, the charm of this place is because it is porn free, though erotica is welcome. Porn is cheap and can be found everywhere, but witty banter and truly warm conversation is priceless and worth it's weight in gold. I'll keep comming back here as long as it's breathing.

Yes I agree I just wish a lot of the old timers posted more. This was the place where I found acceptance when I first started with accepting myself and admitting who I was to myself.

This place helped me out a lot as well when I first came out to myself. I treasure this place.

Carlos I think a lot of the guys here feel the same way we do. I found acceptance here and was allowed to discover who I am.
