    There's never going to be a shortage of people who want to argue, debate, and generally shout each other down. Facebook and Reddit seem to be two of the biggest cesspools of pointless 'discourse' in existence.

    The rest of us can go make stuff, and talk about it here.

    I dunno if the forum is dead, but it's sedated for sure. Is it really because of the facebook group or something else...?

    You guys still hanging out in this dive? Come'aaaaan. Get with it.

    If anyone can tell me what the best nacho cheese dip for hip hop vocals is under $1.99 I'll stick around.

    Cheers :P

    Maybe because it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere and people are on vacation?

    well I sure as hell hope so. Around the time of the re-design we seemed to lose a ton of people who never came back.

    This place is still a great resource but without much activity I have a hard time getting anyone else to visit it. It just looks like a dead forum to most potential users.

    The recording world seems to have become a haven for those who want to endlessly debate their point of view, rather than a place where people make music. Maybe we need more vitriol.

    I'd blame Slippy but he seems kinda sad.

    It was kinda funny when Mixerman warned his buddies not to just come to Mixermania to hawk their wares when he presumably set it up so he could hawk his.
    You have that completely backwards Nobby, as per usual. Here's what it says on Mixermania: To discuss record-making from the perspective of the professional. There's one rule. You delete an original post (thereby deleting the thread), you get tossed.

    In regards to posts that are purely promotional in nature: If you are a participant in the discussions here, then we will grant you some latitude on pimping your shit.

    That's what it says now, originally I said that you could even pimp your shit there. That has turned out to be problematic, of course. Because EVERYONE seems to have something to pimp these days.

    Is it supposed to be ostensibly about discussing audio? It would take a while to discuss all the reasons that this is a superior platform for that.
    This IS a superior platform in many ways. Unfortunately it seems that younger people don't agree with that assessment.

    For starters FB is like a primitive 15 year old message board except with the ability to link to stuff. No bold or italics or smilies (unless you pay extra, probably) and half the stuff that shows up on my newsfeed I'm unable to like or comment on without friending whomever it was shared from due to FB's insidious design. No spaces between paragraphs, anything longer than a few lines is hidden and shit jumps around so if you follow a link you can't find your way back to where you were.

    I've known about bacon since I was a child. Only on FB is it newsworthy.

    Just because you have the ability to announce to the world that you are about to take a nap doesn't mean you should.
    Actually, there tends to be more off-topic information on the forum than on Mixermania. Don't confuse a Group with your Newsfeed. They're different.

    Also I'm tempted to myth bust all the factually incorrect memes that I notice, which is most of them, but I don't have time for that.

    I could go on... and I probably will.
    I think time is the main issue. We have lots of moderators here. Yet I don't have much help, and forums can't be, nor ever will be my main business, which means I rely on others to make things happen around here. I can't run this like a business, and that alone makes it impossible to grow. If you're not happy with the direction of the forums, find some young kids to grab the bull by the horns and take some control of it. I'm down for changes. Drastic changes. But I won't be able to do that on my own. So, if everyone wants to pitch in and reposition the Womb in a manner that is back in favor with how people use the web, then I'm all for it. But complaining about it like there are kids on the lawn most certainly isn't useful. And blaming me isn't a fair assessment.

    It's a community. If the only reason the community exists and remains is because of my activity, then it's nothing more than a fan page. I can reach way more people in way less time by posting on FB, than by hoping people come by here to read it. As a fan page, this place doesn't make much sense for me anymore. As a community, well, that relies on the community.

    The first step would be to get rid of the grumpy old men. Then waddawe got?

    I'm still super young, I'll do it.

    Shit, I'd probably have joined the facebook group if I didn't give it up years ago. I love ya mixerman, but not enough to get a facebook account.

    This place helped me progress, for real, when I had hit a proverbial musical career wall. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    How young is young anyway? Like, college age? I don't think there's as many wrinkly old farts here as it feels like.
