    I have loved this forum for many years but now realise the forum is dead. the site lives on thanks to Mike a and some good articles.However the forum seems to have died which is such a shame after so many years of great info & banter.
    Is this due to a change in social media or something else. I would like to thank MDolbear for many years of forum info which has educated and informed me.
    Thank you Mike

    This has been discussed before but I think there are several reasons why the forum is not as active as before, I do think facebook has had a big impact with various members now on various facebook forums (which is fine).
    Maybe some do not like the new format but this is now so much easier for us to mange regarding spam,with various programs running alongside the management program spam has to be approved where before it didn’t but that also means new members have to be approved.

    A lot of time and money has gone into the running of the site and the new YouTube page drum clips and I guess after nearly 20 years things have changed but I am still pushing forward.

    Been elsewhere, Mike
    a lot of the Dolbearians are still around, especially on faceache. Wendy, Dug, Ted,Craig, Mellis to name a few. I’m sure some are happy in their own little world, but i’ll spread the word

    I was only kidding you, I know many moved over to facebook forums which is cool and everyone is more then welcome here.
    Since the birth of facebook forums like this are not needed which i understand, this forum started 20 years ago. Also as you know the forum was always a good extension to the main site which is still going strong after 20 years (20 bloody years !!)

    Although the forum has given me plenty of sleepless nights with various toxic threads it has always had a good bunch of people on here.
