Re: Seriously On the Decline...

The real question becomes what drives traffic to a discussion board with so may other options available now?

Its my understanding when the corner was founded it was a labor of love. Since the sale the design has moved away from that to one of trying to generate income:

Sponsoring Seminars
Selling Ads
Selling memberships
Gaining Sponsorships

Neither of the above is design to increase traffic.

There is a limited facebook page but the recent images I have seen there are not being shot by members.

We have contests but contributions and overall participation has been lacking. We had a few recent bad experiences with POTY formats resulting from prizes not being received....I believe there may still be some items outstanding. This most certainly drives traffic away as people participate in good faith Note this is not necessarily a problem on the admin side, though they bear the brunt of it being the host.

Finally when the admins fail to communicate and leave everything on autopilot we remain on the same path. Ideas and plans are no longer made leaving everyone in a sort of limbo.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

A major problem may be that there only seems to be a few people who are really interested in keeping this site going.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

Well I can't say I've been a lot of help, but as little as I'm around I still think of this as my photographic home. It has some of my favorite people from the Popular Photography days, and it also seems to be the only civilized place left. I occasionally stop in with the full intention of participating more, but then nothing happens. I'll try to get my act together. It's a jungle out there. pith

Haven't seen a sign of the Admin in ages. I messaged him, even emailed Tim Walker in hopes of finding someone who could try to breath some life back into this dying carcass, but no luck. I fear it's only a matter of time before rigor mortis sets in...

I have messaged too. The photo of the month was not changed on the front cover. Sent 2 messages, with no reply. I think the owners have walked away from the site, but only use the Photography Corner name and logo for social media exposure.
I would love to see the place continue, but us Mods only have certain limitations to what duties we can perform.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

On a more positive note the spammers have been leaving us alone. Its been more than a year since I have had to delete spam.

They probably see the lack of activity and move on.

That reminds me of the old saying, that when a ship is going to sink, even the rats will jump ship rather then go down with it.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

I too check in from time to time but with a graduating senior, I haven't had the time until he leaves for college (in a month!). I have been lucky that when I moved to Houston 4 years ago, I found a great photo club. We meet 2x a month, one on photography and the other on photoshop. Hope this site keeps moving along.
