So, I decided to come back but this place is absolutely dead. I don't get it. Nobody talks even about Wimbledon. Only 40 posts regarding RG. What's happening? Where is everyone? wow

Not as active as we once were.  Pretty slow.  Start some discussions, see what happens.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Scott, I will try but so many old members are simply gone. It's not your fault but it's bizarre. I had my reasons for leaving the board for a while but it's in the past now. Babs is nowhere to be found. Sid too. Dmas, MT, Kittens  ... I can go on and on.  I miss Chris very much. Dallas is slacking too.

There is a new tennis forum. I will not even mention their name, but they are pretty active. I do not like the format or moderators there (they all used to be active on tennis.com before they completely shut down the forum) so I don't post on that 'frontier board'. MTF is still a jungle but it's crazy busy. There are thousands of posts being generated every minute. Most is complete crap but still.

We used to have so many good quality discussions.

yeah, guess with the face book, twitter? etc, many people left the message board.  But I am a loyal and old-fashioned old woman, i still post in the same tennis message boards for 13 years  :king:

Whatever, just post when you want.
I don't like facebook or twitter, I'm too old for that.  :rofl_2:

Well I'm guilty. I not only keep up with my own Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, but I am also the administrator of those accounts for my church so I'm very busy on other sites.

I'm still hanging in here too.  Still watching a lot of tennis (just haven't posted a lot like I use to...but tennis is still #1!!!)

I post on occasion.

Very special occasion....lol
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

I'm guilty of getting busy as well. What with getting married, buying a house and all that stuff I haven't been able to watch much or post much. But I do still follow everything in the tennis world and have recently started playing. In fact I am even trying to finally sell my nCode 6.1 95s and buying a new racquet - as unjustified as it seems since i have no competitive play.

Hopefully I'll be around more often :) I know Bab got a dog, and Chris got a girl so they're busy with their respective.. pets? I don't know about the others.

Dr P - great to hear from you!  You have gotten busy!  Wait until kids...that's my excuse :)  Most importantly though, glad to hear you're getting on the court again.  Do not fret about new sticks; do whatever is needed to keep you on the court.

I'm busy but still post. Not hovering over the boards like in the past but take a few minutes at least to input some of my views in tennis and other areas.
 
Most here just like the tennis of course. I like to add some other areas in other sections that may appeal to some.
 
It would be nice to have an area to discuss health, injuries and other tennis related issues.
Something like best pre/postmatch drinks, what some are doing to address physical performance issues on the court.
Type of insoles that work the best, types of shoes that give stability.
What regimen is good for various problems like tennis elbow.
You get the idea.
 
There's a lot of untapped areas that would help gain posters.
 
Nothing will happen if no effort is offered.

So, I decided to come back but this place is absolutely dead. I don't get it. Nobody talks even about Wimbledon. Only 40 posts regarding RG. What's happening? Where is everyone? wow

Hi Alex! :bye1:

Sorry I'm not around, but I'm just not around anywhere. My life has morphed into Scott's since starting my new job. I work regular hours, then come home and write up notes. But I often go half assed on my notes during the week and save them for the weekend. I've disappeared on all forms of social media. Like the job but hate this aspect of it.   :Confused:

Hope the wife and kids are fine and that your new biz is doing well.
See you at church on Sunday.

Hey Babs, good to see you. Well, you are not posting here that often for all good reasons. I wish you luck with your new job. Now, we just need to find you a fine woman and you'll be all set  :))
