Too little, to late?

I have had plenty of posts "categorized" that had nothing to do with a factory model. It was based on my own personalization of a model with nothing for sale or being pushed. The category system just buries posts at the bottom of the page where they are rarely ever seen.

Well you might be right but what I have laid out is very logical. You are supposed to see the marketing message below this post more-so than yours.

Yes but I guarantee you the owners of your products see them. Just look at the scale forum's categorized docs. Very active.

As the participation in this forum has declined I've asked myself, what can I do to help. I like it here and I very much hope things to continue. Given that I like it here, what can I do to insure RR's continuation?

A few things I've considered include:

-- Read the discussions and information posted here. Pretty simple really. Just check in and read what is here. Not too hard.

-- Contribute to threads when I have something of value to add. In the case of off-topic threads I contribute when I think I have an opinion others might like to consider. I try and contribute to on-topic threads where a question has been asked and not been answered or where an answer has been provided that needs discussion. In all cases reply with respect.

-- Initiate threads and conversation when either I have a question or can provide content.

-- The first three could be summed up as "just be a good community member". Now it gets harder. At times in the past I have bought banner adds under another user name for a product we sell. In the past the cost of this advertising was immediately offset by increased sales. I have considered reinserting our banner add to support this site but our business's sales have roughly paralleled the activity on this forum. So that there is no mistake, participation here, and our sales, have declined drastically. Most recent banner adds here did not produce sales to offset the expense. A banner add here on RunRyder would be close to charity and our business can't support that right now.

I'd be very interested to hear other's thoughts. What can I do today to help.

My Personal opinion is people are just so busy nowadays, I joined in 2004,
the board was filled with posts with new products and new innovations, it was a time when Gyro's were improving from the faithful 401 and csm gyros,
along with Radios and other radio technology was coming on board, then flybarless, so there was always something new to talk about, even in the turbine forum where two stage turbines were appearing on the scene, but now it is old technology, with the demise of the magazines over here Model Helicopter World ( UK) there is no new news about products, etc.

My life has changed a lot, the kids have got older and their needs have changed, work has got more demanding over the past 12 yrs, I probably get a couple of hours a week if that.. all the people I flew with have moved on or sold their models..

I personally miss the old RR format where everything was easier to find, but that my opinion.

RR for me will always be the go to place for new products and innovation, but from a UK point of view it is mainly a USA site, the big posters no longer post as much, we lost some characters like Wicked Clown ( RIP) and Golden Eagle ( RIP) and esco and other characters who created great popcorn moments..

it just seems to me people and times have changed and people have moved on..

All The Best

I come here on RR almost every day to see if their is something new. Unfortunately their are less and less companies opening or updating products or putting new products on the market. Therefore people are less active in their search for new products therefore less visits. Also, because their are less pilots and even less new pilots looking for help from 'us experienced' guys again this means less people come to the forums.
Too bad because RR was the place to get these friendly answers.
