    I love forums because I really find interesting people all around the world and I keep myself in touch on whats happening at current times.

    Would you mention a few things that you particularly like about forums in general?

    To me, forums offer a good way to gain new ideas as well as share your thoughts.

    One thing I really like about forums is that the conversations are usually there forever. Many google searches for my old truck when I was working on it brought up threads from 10 years ago. Which was prefect because my truck was a 2003, many social media sites these days will have so much filler and crap that the actual good tweets or updates will be buried. Forums offer a way to archive our convos you could say.

    That is an excellent point of view. Also, many times you can get in touch with people you met 10 years ago lol. I think our first interaction was around 2008/2009. :) I still communicate with users from my first forum which was around that time. (At social media, things go way too fast for me :) )

    Indeed
    It's been interesting through the years seeing who is around still and who isn't.

    At least in the forum world itself

    One of the first devs I met or knew of was patrick o'keef, I still follow him and we chat time to time.
    There are many great guys and gals I've met over the years.
