    I, for one, would be sorry, Eric. I've made many new acquaintances on this board and spent many hours reading, digesting, commenting and inputting my own thoughts and ideas. The decision really needs to be a commercial one. If the site is costing you money and the returns do not balance the outlay then, in the current climate the logical decision would be to let it go. I doubt whether any of us regulars would argue that point.

    Ken.

    P.S. Huh?, I've just re-read your post and realised you are talking about this board not this SITE. My comments, therefore only apply in general and obviously are not specific to this board.

    Hey Ken,

    Yes, just this Board - "performance/muscle" - not the whole site!

    Just looking at the old stats and, at 6.3 posts per thread, it is/was one of the reasonable performers. At this end it looks as though the board has recently been truncated though and inputs do seem to have dropped off.

    Probably a number of sections could be combined.

    That's an idea.... but my worry is that anything people really want to read about will get lost...

    I'm just trying to decide whether to delete several boards that are almost completely inactive, beyond what I post there....

    Dude, you have too many freaking forums taking up realestate! Just start making sub forums like I have on the three wheeler site!

    Eric;

    You have a lot of though provoking stuff on your web sight. I enjoy browsing through it all. However my favorite is your car reviews,actually anything about cars. I like the motorcycle boards too and religion boards. Just have fun and keep speaking your mind. I think your doing a great job at a thoroughly thought provoking web sight. Maybe I disagree with somethings but does not mean I won't read what you and everybody writes. Hey when is your new book coming out Land Sharks?

    To avoid confusion, call this "board" a "section".
