It's so.... QUIET.... here....

.... I work from home ... have computers pretty much everywhere, from my
phone to my multi-OS desktop, and multiple laptops I use for my business.

And I guess I'm used to the "non-stop" traffic at T.O.P .... here, I refresh
a few times a day, and NOTHING new has popped up.

Is everyone just shy? Or is the membership not the "I can post anytime all
day" crowd like I'm used to?

Just asking... trying to get a feel for the New Place (while very much still
a presence at T.O.P.)

All the best - feeling HORRID with a bad cold,

Jedi

[ps.... is this the right place to post this?]

Jedi,

It's definitley more automotive-focused here - none of the "what watch are you wearing?" type posts. Although there is banter, it seems to come in spurts.

Give it some time, you'll find your stride. I think you're going to like it.

Jedi my friend,

The reason we are not posting nonstop is because we are out driving our cars...

Salve,

Mosler? Wow, aren't those extremely rare? Sorry if I've missed this, mind telling a bit more?

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse of course. That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister F.

It is a great piece of kit. Mine was built in the UK and is one of 5.

At least now its busy enough to carry on a reasonable conversation. When I first came here it was quiet a tomb. The newest posts were months old like it had abruptly died or something. Reminded of that movie, The Last Man on Earth, or the vacant temples of the Mayan.

Thankfully, Mark came over soon enough (it was only a matter of time, they keep enraging everyone over there), and enough people followed from "Ef de Shat" to wake this place up. Now, lets all pray the whine and cheats crowd stays out of here

Not to worry, when they do occassionally show up, we chase them away pretty quickly.

It is nice here. Just the right amount of chat. Perhaps the density of owners is higher than the other place...so more driving and less talking as was aptly said earlier

Agree, I think the % of owners here is very high. Probably well over 50%. Profile of members is also a bit older and more mature. As a result, people here tend to post when they have something they feel is of value to add to a discussion.

With Christmas time, santa shopping for the boys, year end business, traveling, winter storms, etc. There is manageable traffic here and more rational. There are those that attempt trolling, but never get anywhere.
