I've been wondering the same thing. Tiger is always on. But other
experts, folks like Bill Ditmire don't seem to be on much at all. Bill
sorry if I misspelled you name.
Honestly I don't know where folks went. this newsgroup used to be
Agree, not many questions to share knowledge about. It used to be
different. I use to (when I am not too busy with work) follow the
questions and answer, when I feel I have something new to contribute
with (but usually someone has already answered with what I know).
Good to you are around all the time.
BenzWorld.org seems to be quite active now (it used not to be that
way). Maybe thats where people have gone.
The problem with those forums is that they separated to chassis type or even
specific model type... I can't be 10 different forums within the same
website to check for new postings.
Blogs I have seen is very specific and limited to personal experiences...
Newsgroup is actually the best to see everything at one shot. There should
be a wiki for all technical problems but this also takes enormous time and
commitment to fill.
Even when I google for some technical helps... I had to sort through tons of
limited search in order to find specidic answer... it is really a
crapshoot... especially when they archive their posts.
I agree with your view on the spread at the site. That is also why I
preferred this forum.
And earlier the questions there were often not that interesting (do
you like this an that better than....) and technical answers (with the
exception of a few good guys like yourself) were not that qualifie. At
least not when I was in the situation of needing answers.
But right now, there is some good discussions going on (I am mainly in
the W140 forum).
Is it an actual problem? I mean... there are tons of newsgroups filled
up with any sort of non-pertinent information, trolls etc. that I really
don't feel the need to fill up empty space.
When someone is posting an interesting question, quite frequently he
gets an answer here. This is a really good ng in my opinion!
