Since the hack, a lot less activity.

Just an observation that since the p.w. hack, seems like traffic on the forum has dropped off significantly. Haven't seen anything from some of the regs on the site since last week. Not necessarily surprising given the hoops one needed to jump thru to get back on. Looks like some folks have gone as far as to simply create new user profiles because of the rigmarole of p.w. reset.

What hoops?

I entered the new number sent to me by the administrator, logged in and clicked on "stay logged in". Done

I noticed the same thing, however I have come to a different conclusion and just assumed, it's summertime, folks are out riding and enjoying their bikes in the pretty weather.. I have been on motorcycle and ATV forums since the mid 90s and they always slow down during riding season.

Good point. But ya gotta admit that when the likes of Weljoe, Fasteddie, and Silviefox among others go silent it's clear there's less overall user activity outside of the typical summer slowdown.

And I agree that the p.w. reset procedure is not that big a deal but honestly it was just additional task I would have preferred not to have been bothered with.

Correlation does not equal causation.

Joe posted two videos Saturday.

Weljoe had 2 videos, Fasteddie reported on D2D and does not use his computer much and Silvie has many entries in several threads since the p.w. change. I think the slowdown is just normal, folks on vacation (non-motorcycle, non-computer), folks out riding, etc.

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

Yes, I did check the junk mail folder, not there either. Wondering if my ISP is blocking email from the forum?

Don't get me started.. I still can't sign in as Beachbum after two emails to correct the incorrect password they sent me. New passwords require symbols and mine lacked that. I had to sign in as former beachbum to sign in at all.........I don't call that easy.

I can't speak to the others, but I was "somewhere N" for the last three weeks, and the ONLY way for me to communicate was 'smoke-signals', except the rain kept putting the fire out....
