    this place is lost,it's gone to ....

    after 17 views,and no replies,

    it used to be a place that we could go to talk among friends and get actual replies to whatever,but now it's not much more than a dead boring lifeless place for spammers to post,

    you used to be able to come here and ask for help,and GET IT !

    I post in reply to those asking for help usually every day but mostly in the other sections as this section is just for chit chat

    'chit chat' or not,the entire site is considered a tech help site,and either way,I made a post asking for something,and it got nothing,again,IMO this site has gone to $hit and anyone who does not see that is blind.

    As 1 of those 17 views, I clicked but didn't have anything I could offer to help you with, I've never had to stream anything to my TV.

    Was at work so I couldn't put any time into trying to find help for you from another site.

    Now that I'm home and have time to try to find help for you, a thread like this makes me wonder what else I have to do with my time instead.

    Instant gratification is nice but I *try* to never expect it cause it's rare.

    I think what will bring a spark back to the forums is if we brought back the every 1000 post giveback threads!!

    Dan I'm going through the same thing with another forum. Not sure what to blame, but I think Facebook and Twitter have severely dented regular forums. I don't know. It's like the Ebb and Flow of the tide with forums.

    I've been here just slightly shorter then you and I remember the good times and the bad times and everything in between. It's not to late to turn things around.

    FB damages more than just forums... but that's a whole other discussion. The damn site has almost gotten worse than World of Warcraft.

    As soon as the 2012 elections roll around I'm sure there will be plenty of discussions where people get to trash one another...and then leave.

    I say we hold a vote to not have political discussions on this site..it's a tech forum not a political forum as there are plenty of those.

    You gave up after 2 hours?

    Forums have never been great for instant answers. Ya SG is a dying forum, its easy to see, but on any forum you can't expect an answer by 2 hours, unless its an easy question or common one.

    I'm sorry to disagree, but in the general forum, you should be able to discuss whatever. I realize that the nation is divideded politically and that some people stand behind their beliefs like a steel vault, but everyone should have the ability to act like an adult, respect like an adult, behave like an adult and just plain be an adult. I know that's asking a lot from some people, but hey.
