Thing is for most online forums membership is down.
Forums were so successful for many years coz info wasn't so readily available on the growing internet. Now, we're website for everything and looking for info is far easier, so y'know people don't really need forums, they just have to google it.
In terms of this forum, i agree with this:
Having had no clear policy for what the PF forum should be like
, I don't think this forum really every had a clear aim and as thus has become a hodgepodge of meaningless/aimless threads.
People come for help and are lambasted for daring to ask, most threads are turned into arguments and people are not civil.
Plus y'know, it's a forum of, mostly, immigrants in Poland, a tiny, tiny minority and in inconsequential country where not much happens in the grand scheme of things. Or plastic Poles who seemingly know very little about their 'homeland'.
You would have to presume that most people go to other specialist websites/forums and speak about their interests there, not much of an audience here and the audience that is here isn't exactly civil.
