Is this a record?

Nobody has posted ANYTHING for nearly 12 hours now.

If this is a record, I think we ought to be told.

You'll have to go on Ebay and buy stuff you didn't realise you needed instead.

Sadly message boards going the way of the dinosaur due to FB groups... I have spent hours researching on this board regarding RIBS/SIBS with threads going back 10+ years and it's sad to see the board slowing down..

Very true, as a repository for information, Facebook is a waste of time. The sad thing is, folks are often too lazy to search Ribnet for the wealth of knowledge/experience/information that lies therein. Itís easier to ask the same question again and again and again..... Thatís why it often goes quiet, not because thereís no one here, but because thereís nothing new to say.

Im not so sure that people asking the same or repeated questions is why a forum goes quiet , I've found its more to do with how enthusiastic people are and the replies the posts are actually getting.

Also sometimes its good to ask a question that's been done to death to get a current or fresh reply as certain things will change, it could start another topic and just gets people talking.

On the SIB side that's my attitude and why I never mind replying.

There are so many personal factors that combine to make a unique enquiry added to changes in adoption of 4-strokes and new interesting SIB models like the Excel Volaire and Elling KB350 advice does change over time.

I agree I see it as from the last question so much could have changed, found out, I don't add much in the RIB side now being a SIBER but any info is worth adding just to jog memories or start fresh ideas I do find it hard on here to find,search for stuff that might be me though bit of a dinasaur when it comes to IT still look every day though. Could be end of season blues why it's a bit slow at the mo

Agreed, if thereís new info out there or new products then fire away. But how many times have we had ďwhatís the best product to clean my tubesĒ or ďIíve got the attention span of a fruit fly & Iíve had a jet ski/speed boat/LiLo/quad bike & now want a RIB, whatís the best one to buy? I want to be able to take my current wifelet, 4 kids, staffy, kool box of Stella & do 50 mph. I have £1500 to spendĒ
It can get tedious.
Iíll get mi coat.......

Best product for cleaning tubes is a good example: Fairy Power Spray is, I believe, no longer available and that used to be a very common suggestion.

It is just the way of the world nowadays and certainly most forums I visit suffer from the same thing.

On the flip side there are good contributions and, more importantly, good contributors to the forum. You just have to separate the wheat from the chaff and try not to get annoyed by the latter.

Exactly you can tell from the title if you want to get involved with the chat or not, but i certainly wouldn't let it upset me if i didn't like the thread!


Way of the world , now that's a sentence i haven't heard for a while
