Brian said just what I was thinking. When TOH changed it's format, many regulars jumped to Fixerupper BB because they had the same format as the old TOH. Things seemed to be going well though it was slow as all are in the beginning. Then Fixerupper decided to break it up into multiple catagories and that was the kiss of death. The BB is still there, but traffic is almost nill. The bottom line is, it just takes too long to look through 7 or 8 forums, so most people don't. I, for one, find it very quick and easy to scan down the list of questions on the current board and pick out those I'm interested in. I still think the old TOH had the best format. Anybody could create a new thread or contribute to an existing one. Whenever someone posted on an existing thread, it poped to the head of the list. If nobody posted, it fell off the end. In essance, the uses created their own catagories. well, I guess that was about 2 cents worth, FWIW.
