Having only 168 posts in this forum, which will be 169 after this, it seems to me that xtremevbtalk is kinda bleeding....hopefully not to it's death.

I've been here on multiple occasions in my VB6 time and more recently for VB.net, asking questions and looking at them, hoping to help another...

But, IMHO, it seems that fewer people are online these days and fewer questions are asked and/or answered...

Hoping it will change for the better....this so was the ultimate place for our problems....

Sadly,

Peet

Peet,

We are all volunteers here. Much of our high talent became disgruntled when the forum owners stopped taking their suggestions and left. I could be wrong but I believe the forum is under new management today.

Oddly enough user participation also started falling off about the same time.
Some see this as a trend for all visual basic forums.
Especially for those dedicated to legacy VB.
Even though we support VB.NET I am not sure that is what we are known for historically.

The fact that help in VB.NET is much more detailed than in VB6 plus there is a lot of VB.NET information you can find through Google or Bing might also have something to do with it.

I'd be interested to see some sort of graph as to how all programming forums are doing participation-wise. Haven't seen anyone doing that sort of survey though.

Hi Gruff,

Since I did most of my time legacy VB, changed jobs, got hired for a VB.net project, I also am guilty of being absent for multiple years.

As far as Google and/or Bing, I merely start here to search for answers or have xtremevbtalk in the Google search bar as well...(not always being logged in a a user for a quick lookaround).

Good to see guys like you, Flyguy and Diletante still hanging around....

Thanks Gurus and my hope for the best
