Let me say that I am glad some attention is being given to this since I would like to see WCS continue. I have wondered, at times, what was going on. Why is it not as active as it once was? I think the primary reason is…life happens. It gets priority whether we want it to or not. The economy HAS affected many people, my house included, which causes people to focus on things more important than a website. I am on 3 websites regularly and only one is somewhat active as far as G2Gs are concerned. That site used to be a lot more active than now and even at that, there are a lot fewer members who attend the functions that are scheduled. So…we’re not the only one suffering from frustration at the lack of interest.
Joe, I’m glad you’re sticking around here. I’ve seen too many times where the, “I need to take a break for a bit” messages gets posted, only to never hear from that person again. You stood by your word. You took the time you needed and then came back. Thanks for that.
Laurie, thanks for what you’ve done here. I don’t how you went about getting Larry on-board after the other guy. I would not have known where to start. OTOH, getting Larry on-board also caused me to spend more money ‘cause Larry has some really cool stuff I couldn’t resist. So…thanks for that!
In the forums, in PMs, I have sensed your frustration. I really hope you decide to stick around.
Personally, most of the time, it’s easy for me to get on the forums. Other times, not so much. I have certain times during my work day and I have evenings, when not a lot is going on, where I have time to surf. I enjoy interacting with people, both on-line and in person. I like meeting the people I’ve chatted with and see their truck face-2-face. However, with things in my life the way they are (everyone has stuff) most of the time, I have to pick and choose the F2F G2Gs I can attend.
Would splitting WCS in half work better?
Would people get together more often?
With $$ and fuel the way they are, how far are members willing to go for a G2G?
It does seem like that with the advent of social networking sites, forums and such, people seem to prefer to interact more from their keyboard than with their faces.
