I joined the forum to hopefully learn from experienced craftsmen here in the UK. There have been no new topics on matters affecting the UK industry since 2016 (eg. changes to building regs, sourcing timber following Brexit, etc.).

I wanted to make some glib remark about foundations and posts being required to build a successful community but I won't (irony).

And what do you find from the Fellowship Guild there on UK's scene? Man, they nipped any open discussion in the bud, and good. No, to be fair I feel your pain and according to my analysis we have to look no further than Mark Zukkerman (fb) to get an answer, there being a certain convergence in declining participation here and growth there.

Hello FireHorse,

I just got a chance to check emails and updates...I'm not sure "glib remark" will get much attention (LOL!!!) but I, for one, would love to here your comments, and viewpoints on the topic.

There might be other vienue for discussion, both private and public, on the topic that would be of service perhaps?

Hi Firehorse,

I wonder why you choose to hide behind a Nom de Plum ? Are you a Guild member ?

A lot of web forum traffic has now moved over onto other platforms such as Twitter / Facebook / |Instagram. etc. It needs to be recognised that those platforms do not necessarily build a data bank of information like this forum that can easily be searched & querried. Have you tried to do that yet ? or are you seeking instant gratification from the likes of Instagram pictures ? There is no harm in that approach especially if a person is dyslexic. This forum really could do with an easy way to post pics.

I suspect that a lot of the TFG diehards are just taking a rest in between felling trees / hewing / building and publishing having grown tired of forum back bighting where little control can be excercised by self with the poster instead being entirely reliant on moderators who might or might not agree with their or others point of view.

Some of us work away quietly trying to generate opportunities (learning / projects / work) for self and others. (See https://twitter.com/OWGGroup )

If you have something to say or a question to ask then just say it and hopefully this will prompt someone to post an informed answer.


Looking back to see the way ahead !
