    Annoying is the new policy of whitelisting only a few and blacklisting all other links, and blocking all discussion about it. Same for community projects like the christmas gift exchange. Other than that I like this forum enough to spend a lot of time here, in fact the most time I spend online.

    I think there has been a big change in the forum in 2013. It seems that a lot of long time members are AWOL. Sad really.....

    the only members that are awol are the ones who swooped in here last year, talked a bunch of off-topic nonsense, and then threw fits and left. those who joined in 2012 may think the forum has changed, i just see it as going back to normal.

    That pretty much sums up most of the changes.

    I found this forum in 2011. There are plenty of members that have gone since that time. I am not sure who you are referring to throwing fits in 2012???

    im not saying no one ever leaves, silly! im saying most of the people that were here when i joined, are still here, and there are a lot of new members since that time, who contribute so much to this forum that i dont know what you're complaining about.

    there was a group of individuals who found it necessary to post thousands and thousands of times about nothing, constantly derailing picture threads with immature content. then behaved immaturely (and still do, elsewhere on the internet) when their behavior was moderated.

    i dont care if these people had 10,000 posts and 30,000 likes, they were not productive contributing members of this forum. (in my opinion)

    all this complaining about EDCF....here, and other places. if you dont like it....dont come here. its so simple. no one's holding a gun to anyones head.

    I actually meant this as a haha obsessed thread, didn't intend for it to be a venting thread. Just wanted to see if I was the only one out there or if there are others.

    i love edcf. its astonishing how much new content the members generate everyday. im not a forum junky...this is the only forum i've ever been a member of. i never felt the need to post my thoughts on the internet before i found this place and i haven't found another since.

    so...if you can't find anything interesting and new to read on here, generate something new and interesting.

    I think this is an awesome place. I've been a member of other forums and there is a lot of "judgment" (steel snobs, tint snobs, custom snobs) if you posted about anything that wasn't "top of the line" you got :censored: on. Not here, it's a cool place were you get as many likes and replies to a thread about a custom light, knife, keychain tool as you do a nice reasonable priced set up.

    Tldr:
    this is a great place with little to no bad judgment, where you can get good, honest info about your edc or the stuff you want to add to your edc.

    I can understand your point of view. Always kind of sad when you get a nice little break, check the beautiful knives and sleek handguns threads and find that there aren't any recent conversations :cry:

    EDCF will always be a great place.
    The changes have happened.
    Some have gone.
    Some have come.

    You are not the only one out there...

    I don't post near as much as I used to; my life has just gotten busier.

    Coming up on my four year anniversary and 500 posts. Still finding things to learn from active members on EDCF. ;)

    Hopefully activity will pick up with the holidays coming. Winter weather slows outside activities down, more time to spend on the forums.
