Problems at the other CBF?

The other CBF seems to be making decisions about its future. This was posted by the owner yesterday:

"I always said I would continue to keep CBF alive while it was still fun.

It isn't.

I haven't the time to influence it, I really don't need it, I kept it going because I thought some of you needed it.

Thanks for the good times, it will remain read only while I decide what, if any, future it has."

Only two posts since then - in the gardening section.

Calis Beach Forum Is Now Read Only

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

I've always thought of forums as having a similar function to pubs without the booze. We have our favourites but do visit others, Monday (Kings Head), Quiet chat with like minded folks. Tuesday (Rose & Crown) Darts. Wednesday (Red Lion) Pub quiz. Thursday (Fiddlers Inn) Quietly getting pissed amongst strangers. Friday & Saturday (The Bull) Big bands, lots of noise and..... GIRLS.

Pubs have changed and so have we, likewise forums lose their attraction and spice, same old people trotting out the same old nonsense and failing to trigger a response from the crowd.

When I read Ian's post I started to think of the few Turkey biased forums, Turkish Living, Turkish Life, AA, Calis Beach and Kusadasi Forum. The last three on the list are peculiar to a specific town or area and in my opinion this makes them fragile and likely to fail. Turkish Life was the odd one out simply because it was a sham from the start as many on here would have known and it's demise was nothing short of a relief.

Turkish Living would appear to be the eventual survivor... or will it be? This year has not been a good year for TLF and members have been walking on egg shells for a couple of months now.

Again, Ian's post started me thinking and a little research on Absolutely Altinkum showed me just how close all these forums turn out to be, with Mushtaq being the linchpin. Could it be that if he finally lost interest in forums, or Turkish forums this one could slowly slide into the Aegean Sea

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

Let’s hope that TLF doesn’t go pear shaped – lots of decent folk on here that I would have liked to have met in reality.

I think we are all appreciative of the time and expense that Mushtaq has incurred and it must be dispiriting to see a lapse of 2-3 hours between posts on occasion. Personally am also happy to see that he hasn’t implemented the Turkey only ruling – TLF deserves to be bigger than that.

Nevertheless for me the forum has become somewhat lackluster of late, enquiries about bus time tables etc don’t really fire me up and with so many of the more controversial members missing there’s nary a good spat to be had

Yes but two today - that's momentum building...!

It would help to send some advertisers to the forum if you want to keep it alive... think about it...

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

I was on that forum for a while, but there was a distinct anally retentive feel about it. If anyone posted in the wrong section for instance a ton of brown stuff was coming their way. It was mostly a small clique who ran it and any dissenting voices were quickly banned. For a forum to survive it needs to encourage new posters as well as allowing healthy debate amongst the more established members. The arbitrary banning of frequent posters, just because some my not agree with their opinion is not going to help keep a forum active.

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

I know there are a few dissatisfied emigrees from this forum who settled on CBF; it will be interesting to see where they go next.

That happens on TLF also SH – one ban and two infractions for absolutely no reason and with no possibility of appeal doesn’t encourage warm feelings.

I find Bashfuls post #2 “walking on egg shells” particularly apt.
