Nope. All there as normal.
Mercs are like women, no 2 are exactly alike. That's what testing is about. In general it is safer to test motors and props than women!

I think you'll find it is Facebook is the problem.Some of my groups seem to take holidays from time to time and reappear as and when they feel like it.But as I'm not the sharpest with computers,there isn't a propeller on it, :D and my daughter has emigrated I'm without my tech :(
no matter how bad it is,it can always get worse,I'm an optimist

A belated reply from a regular visitor to Internet Finds and an infrequent poster. :oops:

I ran a sports forum with half a million posts spanning some 14 years, but had to acknowledge, somewhat reluctantly, that Facebook was taking away readership, so had a rolling shutdown over several months.

Whilst some forum members transferred, the majority didn't, due, in my humble opinion, to the simple fact that people of a certain age and disposition don't welcome change.

However, what social media is much better at is reaching new members and with this in mind perhaps the Facebook page should be pointing people towards the forum, rather than trying to carve a niche on it's own?

I can't see any link backs? Maybe because my request to join the group wasn't actioned?
