    It used to be so lively and buzzing (Pun intended) with activity, now it's a barren wasteland.
    Where did everybody go?

    Whether the members have opted out of this forum?

    When this site became "commercial", most of the old "community" members opted to go elsewhere. The current owners pay almost no attention to what is happening on these forums and they get little traffic.

    So true. The original owner was more 'one of us' vs. a corporate talking head, and tons of people came here just for the fellowship of the forum. Once the place became the # 1 marijuana traffic site, and owner #2's money grubbing methods chased off most all of the long term regulars, the forum started a big downhill slide and it's highly unlikely to ever recover. Weedmaps, the current owner, has tried to restore the forum popularity, but forum success can be a fragile thing and you can't force it to happen. Nothing lasts forever.

    Salutations 5drive,

    Is that the same "weedmaps Administrator Staff Member" as that on Cannabis dot Com??

    Actually i think this is so true that's quite a constant of the known universe!

    Good day, have fun!! :D

    Salutations @Moderator-WM,

    OKay, being "Administrator/Staff Member" here too i believe the answer couldn't be formulated more clearly: that's a "yes", definitively. No doubts shall remain!

    :p

    ...

    Well, nice to meet you in writing right here, euh... Do you prefer something less official, like mister something, or madame (as i just noticed the avatar)? Simply making some conversation for our 1st encounter here!

    ;)

    Good day, have fun!! :D

    Nice meeting you too, you can always call me Mod if you need to. Not sure if that makes it a little less official but that works for me

    Hope that you are having a great day

    Salutations Moderator-WM,

    The account dates back to a couple years, as i recall, consequently i presume it's actually a 1st encounter for us, considering it was another person in charge, previously... Well, assuming i understood the situation correctly.

    So i'm equally pleased to find an opportunity like this one! :cool:

    Thank you and no problem here, the name sure won't sound ambivalent! :rolleyes:

    It was a pleasant exchange.

    Good day, have fun!! :D

    To play on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Linkedin ... trolling the army of new-ish social network sites for new places to spam. You know, the tech savvy 420 sites that didn't exist when MJ was first rolled out in 1994.

    Why did this post get tanked? I hate to be that person, but are we being censored?

    I think the days of forum communities, especially in cannabis, are on the come back.

    While our forums section has gone through difficulties recently, we are on the mend and looking for some great updates in the near future. With Instagram and Facebook closing accounts that post marijuana consumption in their online media feed, the forums section at marijuana.com is absolutely poised to receive that distressed 420 social media.
