What I'm noticing, and maybe it's just me, is that the forums seem to be very slow. Not in technology slow, but it seems that before I stopped scrapbooking several years ago that most days posts and replies were back to back to back. That doesn't seem the case anymore. I feel like such an addict since every 5 minutes I'm picking up whatevers closest that has wi-fi or 3g and a browser to check and see if anyone posted after me... only to be disappointed that they hadn't! Hopefully it's not just me... less than a week back into the hobby and I already feel like I need an AA group for it.
I've noticed that at times. I think that a couple of the contributing factors are the increase in the number of blogs that people have and/or read, as well as forums that have been created by crafting companies, in which their customers have the common interest of that particular product line.
This site is still a terrific resource, but maybe you'd enjoy adding some of the other options I mentioned, particularly when you're interested in getting or sharing information regarding specific products.
I continue to be amazed at how many terrific product lines there are and the ever-growing number of talented people who share their creations and their crafting adventures online!
