So is the conversations forum officially dead? Should we call a mortician?

Kinda suspected by the look of it that it wouldn't be worth my time to post there but a few days ago i did.

If anyone would like to chat about the video I provided a link to it would be great.

A warning in advance though,..it's a little harsh in places but worth watching all the way through.

Thank you! :)

The conversations forums I am familiar with never seemed to me to catch on. I was disappointed in their failure to thrive.

A million years ago it was actually kinda active.

Fair number of personalities about these parts...makes me wonder why not now? Certainly I come here to discuss plants and such but I find it hard to believe that nobody has anything to say on other subjects.

Party doesn't start til you throw it. :)

It should be obvious that the Conversation forums haven't been popular because the vast majority of people who visit here are very simply not interested in schmoozing or involving themselves in theoretical discussions.

I'm sure that there are other websites out there that welcome and encourage discussions on a wide variety of topics. In the meantime, don't give up on inviting us to your party. You just might come across the right people at the right time who are more than willing to get involved in a good discussion.

Asleep,
We need people such as yourself to remind us plants are not the only thing that exist. lol
I think most people here can't find very many people to talk about plants all day without annoying them, so they come here. I would be glad to join the conversation :)

I think most GW members are unaware of the Conversation Forum which is the reason it's rarely visited.

Same thing happened with Foliage Forum, 'if it till existis.'

I'd stop at Foliage Forum every few months. The time frame between entries were unbelievably long. Sometimes 4 months before someone left or answered a message.

Conversations is a nice forum, but would better if more people visited.

Asleep, I'll join the party...Toni

I look in there occasionally. It is what it is!

How's this for an OT blurt, coffee smiling at me! If only I'd grabbed the camera 5 seconds earlier, it was a lot better, but I did get it at the last minute before the mouth and eye completely converged.

Great shot!

Makes me think of some kinda japanese cartoon character.

I'm glad you stop in over on the flip side...just figured if I were to remind people that it's there maybe more would hang out...so to speak.

My failure to document any unfortunate adjacency really has me down lately...

I know what you mean....Jeff's got an eye for these things it would seem...a gift perhaps!

Hard to compete with that guy! :)
