Too many over inflated ego's self opinionated 'experts' and inflexible stubbornness - 'do it my way or you're wrong'. Add those together and the forum was always going to implode.
Fun parts like a usable chat room vanished - another nail in the coffin.
Star ratings and 'likes' were fun, but got abused, so the headmaster took them away from the naughty children.
I hate Facebook, and miss the good parts of the Forum in its heyday, but the negatives brought about by some linger long in the memory, so I fear what we have now, is about all we'll have. I hope to be proved wrong.

Think you might be right Barry it is shame though it could be really good again with healthy debates.

Hi Barry

I hope you are well, your post about sums it up.

Put 3 Falconers in a room to discuss the colour of a black cat and they could not agree !!

By the way Barry my cat is blacker than your cat

Ha ha Clive my cat is blacker though.

It is a shame that opinions can't be respected as healthy discussion is better for all.

I was on here as an inquisitive newbee about six years ago, hoping to gain some information and advice in order to help me decide whether I had the time and lifestyle needed to own and hunt a bird. It transpired that at that point in my life , I didn't.
It wasn't a particularly welcoming place and some of the more experienced members seemed to take more pleasure in ridiculing than actually advising.

My job / lifestyle has now changed and I'm revisiting my interest in falconry, hopefully this time will prove more fruitful .
I was very surprised and disappointed at the lack of activity as I was under the impression that this is, or at least was, the leading forum on the Web, I'm sure things will improve but it will almost certainly involve being a more welcoming place.
