halvsie rollcall: where did everybody go?
#1
It's like a ghost town in here. I see a few familiar names but where's everybody else? Where's umeboshi? Trees are nice?

i think so too.. most people are too stressed about work to be around here... but I think its also due to facebook... people write their opinions there

I've been out of town for the last week at a convention. Still here, though! (And still out of the office at another convention *sigh*)

I still check some forums, including this one, but hardly ever write posts.



Are forums so 00's?

^nothing wrong with the format I think.. juss needs to have more peeps around to keep things exciting..

Actually, these forums have been instrumental in letting many halvsies meet each other especially in person, who otherwise would've been unable to do so even through newer social media (facebook and twitter aren't really conducive for that, I think).

I"m with you 9....I've been able to meet up with some of the Northern and Southern Calif. halvsies, something I doubt I'd do with 'strangers' on facebook, et al. I do meet with others from there, but they are people I already know...not strangers who just happen to sign up, like here. Lotta nice folks on here, and I do miss seeing so many people from the recent past...Kristina, lisasuko, DanielYuki, and you too, Number 9!! etc...

Actually I meet people off Twitter but mainly people who I've got to know well from their food blogs...I check back in at Halvsie every once in a while but most of my time I spend blogging or on Twitter - Facebook, not so much anymore. Probably would hang out here more if it was like the good ole days of the Ruv Pent ;P I also agree about the meeting thing - I'm already friends with heaps of people off this forum so I know about them and I can just chat or email them if I want to catch up.

Maybe forums are 00 though...Unless they're help forums for computers etc.



@Shimura Ken Trees hasn't been on for like 4 years! And Bosh has a baby but I see her on FB.

is it true thatstarting august facebook will ask for a subscription fee? if so, I m sure many people will refuse to pay the amount so maybe boards will revitalize...

If they do that, that's probably just for "premium" services, whatever they determine that to be.. I do tend to facebook and twitter more now.

agree with simon, they'd lose all advertising revenue if they charged a flat out fee - everyone would leave.

Speaking of Facebook, does anyone even visit the Halvsie page? It seems more dead than these boards. There's another group called "I am Half-Japanese" on there that seems a lot more active.

^there are a bunch of different half japanese/half asian groups on there. I think the only times I've checked the halvsie fb page has been when the forum has been down.

facebook's useful for organizing events, but never thought it's group feature was all that good. mixi's actually better for that, not that i use that much anymore tho.
