Long Time, No Posts.
« on: April 27, 2018, 23:02 »
It's been a long, long while since i posted anything, maybe 18 months or so.

From being someone who detected four or five times a week I very quickly went to someone who virtually stopped detecting altogether.

Sore knees and ankles very quickly developed into full blown osteoarthritis. I just couldn't do it anymore. Even small amounts of time spent on my feet were misery.

With nothing much of interest to post about it was hard to get enthusiastic about posting.

This happened about the time that this forum was going through some major changes, the biggest being the change of ownership.
I was less than impressed at the time. I didn't care much for the changes nor for some of the self opinionated characters that seemed to be proliferating on the forums at the time. The forums were quickly going to the dogs.

At the time, I believed that the forum was destined to an inevitable demise.

Thankfully, time has proved me wrong and this is still a good forum. Not the same anymore, but it's turned out ok.

Funnily enough, even though I was disillusioned about the forum changes and the loss of good contributors i have regularly read the board and I'm pleased that it seems to be doing ok. Different, but ok.

On a more personal note I have been able to manage my arthritis to a point where I am able to spend a bit of time detecting again. I can't do what I used to do and tend to stick to easier sites and locations. I still can't detect for long periods like I used to, but hell, I'm able to do something.

My finds haven't been spectacular but even so, I'm still finding a few interesting things. 

Good luck to everyone. 
:)

Good to see a post from you Emu. Most are still here. Some go and return. Comps have changed for the worst i think. I think it would be better if all could vote instead of only a small few. Resources are all mixed up with “what is this posts” but not much we can do about it. The forum was offered up for sale again but under conditions which nobody wanted. Facebook groups get a lot of posts and some members may find it easier to only follow one groups posts. I have had some of my posts on the page i run get 30000 views in a week so FB gets good coverage.
Good to see you got some relief from your problems, does cold weather makes it worse?

Glad to have u back its been too long, glad to have a old timer back as you can see I rarely post myself, after the changes apparently we were the bad eggs ruining the forum into its inevitable demise lol
Hope the old camps are still producing for you

Welcome back Emu, know how you feel, I tend to do things a bit more slowly as well which in it's own way has become an advantage, mild exercise is better than no exercise, things will improve I'm sure........cheers Colin.
