Like to Lurk

Post here if you like to lurk... even just a 'Hi'

P.S. My thoughts on the decline of the forum is that it was inevitable.

The technical detail available in this forum (and its predecessor) was well ahead of YouTube 'how-to-make-a-short-film' videos available in abundance these days. Questions related to film making and specifically this competition have been 'asked and answered' so often, and so well, that the resources we now have available (I'm thinking all the info under Help, Registration, City Info etc.) negate the need for new topics or posts.

Because we have this resource there is less need for a forum.

Think back on the busy years when the forum was most active... we had real fiddly shit like exporting from camera to tape to deal with. Now it's all so easy... so I lurk.

I love to lurk, because I feel reluctant to give my personal input sometimes as I don't want it to be mistaken for any official position on anything. So I lurk lurk lurk, and mutter to myself, "gah" at some comments, shake my fist at the screen at times, and other times nod sagely in agreement.

You shouldn't feel that way! I would love to know your thoughts and opinions! Even if it's me you're shaking your first at.

I mostly like to lurk. Mostly

If I'm honest, I have often lacked the commitment to regularly comment (despite my three figure count) but always, always, always enjoy the read. I've been around since the old forum which certainly had a lot more personalities driving the volume of conflict, humour, advice, experiences, thought, craziness etc.

I'd rather come here than the 48HR Facebook though. Apart from tagging someone I don't think I've ever made a contribution there.
