I am thankful for the opportunity and the people that helped me to keep it going for so long.

I don't think the drop off in participation of this forum can be attributed completely to Facebook. No doubt FB has decreased forum use across the board, but I'm still a heavy forum user and I don't visit here as much. It really started a few years back when the forum was completely over run with spam. Myself and others were reporting multiple spam threads started by bots every single time we logged on. The nail in the coffin was when they switched to this current version of Vbulletin. It ran so slow, and it was so bogged down with ads, that the site was basically unusable. This pretty much drove away most of the knowledgeable contributors and they never came back. As an example Greg Melka hasn't logged on here since 5/4/16, Misti Hurst since 2/2/16. As a result the quality of content on this forum has definitely gone down; I still look around every couple weeks or so and it seems like most of the threads are newbs/squids asking the same questions over and over.
