The forum has been rather quiet over the last few days. However, don't let that fool you, there is always somebody around to answer your questions promptly. So please don't let the lack of activity makes you think that nobody is here no questions will go unanswered.

It is really quiet. Why no one puts updates on their tanks regularly and who does doesn't get any replies? I get in almost everyday hoping to have some new photos or doubts to see/read but usually there is no more than one or two topics to see and sometimes none.

I think everyone uses Facebook nowadays. I noticed a couple of the bigger sites that used to have hundreds of people on at a time have also gone slightly more quiet.

People seem to be obsessed with social media these days. What annoys me is that anyone go on there with their own opinion whether it's right or wrong. At least we can control things a little bit more on the forum. I don't know, maybe those of forums like this will come to an end if people aren't bothered using them.

People always like to be liked. On Facebook you put a photo of 200 fish in a small tank and almost everybody gives you likes.
On fóruns like OFL you only get answers you dislike because you really did that setup because you wanted to and all is going well (for now).

Yes, that actually makes a lot of sense. People are more interested in getting likes than actually getting the sort of advice that will stop the fish from turning belly up. I created the OscarFish lover group page, however I don't use it at all. I'm sick and tired of seeing comments and photos that obviously show people don't know what they're talking about. But if you say anything you just get a load of abuse.

If people want to use the forum than they can. However, I often keep an eye on the statistics and we are getting on lots of visitors from organic traffic, well over 2000 hits are they. Just about any phrase that contains the word Oscar Fish, or Oscar will bring our website onto the first page of Google.
