I used to post here all the time and get helpful responses within minutes, lately I think I've posted 6 times or so and I think I got one reply. I used to refer people here as a great resource, I had two people tell me they posted a couple of times and got a bunch of views but no responses. Are people spending time somewhere else?

I guess some people got bored with it, or have grown beyond it. Those who post the long helpful replies aren't getting paid for it. You just have to look at all the unanswered posts in "What camera should I buy"...you can only answer the same question so many times before you go nuts.

In my case I used to help host a computer forum...don't know how many times a month someone would post, "how do I reformat my computer and reinstall Windows"...people are too lazy to look up the answers online, and those responding all the time do go crazy and get tired of it.

It also depends on which forum
(hint: make sure you get a camera brand in a forum where more people frequent)
