I have become rather depressed today. I was doing some behind the scenes work on my lists and found that 20 forums that I used to visit are either now closed or defunct and there is very little activity on many of my other favourites.

Many friends I have made on Delphi over the past 18 years have also dropped away from Delphi.

Some I have kept up with on Facebook, as they don't "Delphi" anymore.

I really dislike the new formatting here, that is why we still have the old style design here.

I know the last 18 months I haven't been around much, but when I do post there is little response.

Is this everyone's experience and should I call it a day with my forums?

Thank you for the encouraging words.

I am still around but with a busy life I just don't get the time to be here at Delphi. I used to run a daily chat room on my primary forum Shout to the Lord. I haven't opened that room in 3 years since City chat came on board Delphi and decimated the chat rooms.

If you check out the boards I am posting on all forums still, just not as often.
