When you look in the user online list at FRF it would appear it is busier than here being there are always 6 or 7 names in there.

LIE!!!!! It is a simple trick called "sessions settings" that is part of the admin section of all forum software.

A lot of places set their sessions way large and if someone even happens by accidentally it will trigger their name appearing for several hours sometimes. A common trick that I don't believe in. 15 or 20 minutes is sufficient to keep the list from bouncing with every refresh and is way closer to the amount of time actually spent in a session.

So if you see 10 people in our list it is because most of them are actually here and not just ghosts to give the illusion of popularity. No smoke and mirrors here!

All you have to do is look at new posts. Then it becomes obvious that it is a ghost town.

really a shame the owners have let it go like this.

i learned a lot from members there & shared a ton too.
hopefully the "veterans" of ranger forums past will find there way here & keep things going.

I still visit FRF mostly to see who is still around.  I have invited most of the ones I run across and a lot of them are now members here. I believe that the FRF members that actually cared will find their way here by word of mouth, or direct invitations from me and other members of F-R. :)
