I don't know if it's because of the lower traffic volume or we got a better filter but the is sure a lot less SPAM here than there was years ago

Maybe everyone who's active on both Facebook and TC can gently remind/inform people in FB tiki groups about TC and encourage them to stop over here, see what's been happening, and maybe help liven up the joint.
I do this constantly. It's somewhat annoying in tiki-specific groups for conversations to go off topic, and i'm always thinking "if you wanna share unrelated content there's a place for that!" but it seems like -those- people don't care enough to come here. Like, this is THE place.
As a side note, and perhaps back to topic, I think the comparison of old web tech to old Polynesian bars doesn't hold. That's like saying "oh I don't like modern medicine, I'm going to stick to my leeches. They may not work as well but it's of the time and I don't mind the added time and agony." Why make 10 clicks when you can get the job done in 2? This is coming from a digital designer. I understand resistance to change but go back to your flip phones or your rotary phones and tell me that you prefer those instead of our current web tech. I gotta stop saying web tech.

I actually miss the days when I use to be an active member of TC, but kids, job, house and life in general have gradually pulled me away. Ironic part is my friends these days have no connection to "tiki" and when they come to my house and walk into my tiki bar (Riviera Room) most are blown away and get a real kick out of watching me behind the bar making drinks. In reality though I can't imagine any of them becoming members of TC. I envision when the kids head off to college the wife and I becoming more active again.

After reading through this topic, I feel I need to write my very first post on the subject. I am new to Tiki Central, and want to thank everyone for all their time and work creating and maintaining this website. I'm not on Facebook (for a few reasons), and was overwhelmingly happy to find a place where there is such a huge community and wealth of knowledge. A place for the tiki community to develop things in their own way. I am glad to see that there is a desire to keep it running. I hope that the TC Ohana has the love to keep it going. Although, I know very little about code, or, the inner workings of web design.....I do greatly appreciate those that do, and those you have kept this running independently. Mahalo nui loa !!
