    thanks guys, this all helps and its all in line with stuff I already thought pretty much.

    It will help of course when I am back in the mix more.

    One thing I do want to do going forward is bring in at least 1 moderator to help with things so if anyone wants to throw their hat in the ring let me know.

    More rambling from me below... tl;dr - keep the forum.

    Search is nearly impossible on facebook and twitter. A facebook group does usually have a search box and it's helpful - but not perfect - and facebook is so fickle on changing features it'll probably not be there. Twitter relies on hashtags - after all this time I finally started seeking out miniature people on twitter instead of musicians and discovered the #miniaturemondays and #wipwednesday .. .#warmongers etc... I just can't get into instagram - I try - but it's so far removed from encouraging comments.

    I ran a decent music community on the Ning platform for years (2008-1014 ish). I've admin / modded music forums for years. Everything's changed so much since Usenet.

    Actual forums like this are still the best place for posts and threads where it's relatively easy to find something. However, Slack and discord are both pretty cool. Costly but cool. I am enjoying Miniature Monthly's discord.

    I’d throw my hat into the ring to be a mod, but I wouldn’t want to volunteer if I wouldn’t have enough one to do it properly - what kind of things do you want the mod(s) to do?

    In that case, I reckon I can sign up to it if no better candidate shows up

    Hey guys, just logged in for the first time in many months and saw this thread.

    I agree with pretty much everything you've said, with the decline of the forums I pretty much don't interact with the online painting community at all anymore. Which is a shame as I paint much less as a result.

    Like many of you I'd like to see the forums make a come back but don't know how. Would it be possible to setup threads so that new posts also generated a post in a Facebook group? Might help a bit..

    I originally joined Wamp because of the competitions and though I haven't participated for many years I see them as great motivation/source of traffic.

    Many people have said some of the bad things about social media, I think what people like is the instant gratification/comments, hence maybe if we could get WAMP forum posts to generate facebook posts which could be 'liked' etc then maybe it gets some of that back?

    Heyy! haven't been around here for a while, just so much other stuff going on and mini painting has taken a back seat along with a lot of forum visits. Find I do a lot less painting now as I struggle with eyesight and my old hands aren't as steady as they used to be. How to revitalise I don't know, probably streamline stuff - when I was a regular visitor there was always so much stuff it took ages to get through it even when visiting every day.
