    Yes there are other forms of media out there, but being a bit of a luddite, the discussions that abound on this forum are more worthwhile and informative. The answers and comments given are usually well thought out and helpful and whilst some may think we ought to move with the times and integrate with other forms of media, unless it becomes the only way for the forum to continue then leave it alone, it's great as it is.

    Does the forum need to change, what's the driver here?

    Personally, I appreciate this forum as it is. I have met and heard opinions from shooters from all over, I have made much use of the buying and selling areas (some closer to home would say not enough selling!) and I have my interest piqued occasionally, particularly when it comes to aspects of legislation or, as Chris says, ISSF rule changes (even though I don't shoot to those rules).
     
    To an extent, this forum is quieter due to the calibre of its patrons - what's said is in the main constructive, inciteful and self-policing, a far cry from the many examples you see with a little blue thumbsup; Facebook does not a good forum make. Yes, it's immediate, but the quality of material follows the 80:20 rule from the wrong side. I think a forum allows a more considered response and also an inherent archive - there's many a time I've gone back to a post or two because I know I can.
