I hadn't posted in a year. Had visiteda few times but no posts. This forum has undergone some big charges.

It's gone dead compared to what it was. For example, I had not bought or sold here since 2011. I posted a lens for sale last week and my post stayedon page one for three days. Just a few short years ago I would have been five or more pages back by that time. And i got ZERO action from my post, not even a low baller. I sold the lens elsewhere.

I follow some lens/camera sample threads and they used to do pages per day. Now a page per week if lucky.

Maybe this has been discussed, but I am a bit in shock at how dead potn has become.

Anyone else?

Maybe there's more like you Joe who haven't posted in a year, that would certainly reduce the activity.

I'm sure Pekka has the stats to indicate current activity versus former.

Marketplace has limitations that were not in old potn, no sorting, no PM notifications by email. Those will be remedied in next version. See http://photography-on-the.net .../showthread.php?t=1​421854

Can't argue with numbers I guess.

The new format doesn't bother me any. I didn't post for a while for reasons that have nothing to do with POTN.

Still, seems not as lively here as in times past. Maybe its the threads I follow.
