As an ex-mod here, I look in from time to time, but barely contribute. Under the old regime, perhaps some topics were locked unnecessarily in the eyes of some, but regular contributors tended to understand and accept why this had been done, perhaps after a little explanation by PM. Latterly in my time, changes made by the administrators, appeared to be made for change's sake, which is what caused me to jack it in. I came on here last week and was shocked at how the forum has changed AGAIN and all the old moderators appear to have disappeared. The forum used to thrive and now there's not a lot to get involved in. Perhaps the age of the forum has passed.
