Well, folks pick and choose where they spend their "social media time".

There are many members who used to be "very active" on this forum, now they are "less active".    Who can say what their reasons might be? ?

The simple facts are that the VAST majority of members, on any site, DO NOT CONTRIBUTE.    They mostly "surf" for ideas or controversies.

Even a site with "thousands" of registered members is small potatoes campared to the "Giants", ie: FaceBook, Instagram, etc.

Perhaps a better question is:  "How do we get more members to participate and contribute."

JMHO

For the most part the way ECTA is now its not like the way it once was. Maxton was great and Wilmington was even greater. Huge amount of racers attending a close nit family of like minded racers. If only it was that way once again racers would be back and this forum would be active once again. It would also help if a racing location was in the East.  Oh well things change and racers move on to other things spending their dollars on something else.  Same thing happens when the local drag strip closes the way things are now its sort of like that you find something else to do or someplace else to race.   :-(

I remember $100 tech cards and full results posted by the end of the week... I'm still waiting for the June run logs.
