Default Usage going down

Over the past few days I've noticed the visitors to THT has dropped off. It's almost midnight now and the number of visitors is less than half of the average. This may only be a sunday thing during football season, I really don't know because I have never paid any attention to the number of visitors before. Things do seem to have slowed way down in the last week and I have to wonder whether all the forum suicide threads have had a serious effect on people coming to the site. Hopefully IB will do what they can to appease members who are put off by happenings as of late. Has anyone tracked visitor numbers longer than I have and can explain the drop as a seasonal thing that happens every year, I sure hope that is the case.

I don't know Sid, but I find it hard to believe that very many people would leave this site over the Sandbar deal. Kind of makes me wonder how many of these guys who are doing the most complaining really own a boat.

I for one spend more time just BS'ing as opposed to talking about boats and boating, but it comes down to the big boat / little boat thing again. Personally, I hang out here because of the people I've come to know, not because of girly pictures or technical stuff about boats. It's like a marina where we are all there because we have a boat, but boats hardly ever become the topic of conversation. I figure this deal will take care of itself, one way or the other.

Huntin, football, economy, holiday weekend, fall leaves turnin, ridin harleys. All sorts of reasons. I doubt it has anything to do with the sandbar. But, hay, all the bilge rats are logged on I see, so who cares.

It's JUST an internet boatin forum. Nothing more. When Wiley was in charge, you almost felt like you were apart of something great bcuz Wiley was one of us. I felt like I was apart of something special.


IB, it's not too late. Never too late
