That's an interesting point, Ron. I'm still fairly new at this but I was mostly doing a lot of reading and no posting on the previous forum and it was very large and active. IMHO very well done and busy like truck forums and utv forums and such. This new forum is nowhere near as active nor has the information sharing that the old one had. I hope it all works out and all the folks that were active and present in the old forum get into this one. The http://www.goldprospectorsspace.com/ site is pretty nice, too and has a lot of good information for folks like me that are still learnin'.
