    I noticed that not as many posts are being posted and everything in the new feed is ebay parts from the parts bot (more than normal).

    I try to check this site out daily and really don't see much activity now.

    I guess in the US we are getting into the holiday season, people are traveling again or will be, etc.

    Things are hit and miss this time of the year, usually we see a spike in august then a slight dip towards the holidays with election years being worse then other years. Then we climb up right at the end of the year and the first part of the year is usually strong.

    No one should see the parts bot posting the ebay feeds unless you go into those forums. I'm guessing you're on the mobile, I'll have to see if I can suppress that somehow.

    Recently I've been posting a lot of blog items so they don't show up on the feed. But on the home screen and twitter a lot of what you see is the parts bot.

    Ok, thanks. The homepage is a piece of junk and we're going to get rid of that entire system and put in something that functions MUCH better. I just need time to get 'r done. Thanks for pointing this out, I'll suppress all of those so that no one will see those.

    Maybe it is just me but it is getting colder so of course things are starting to break and need replacement so things should start picking up. I need a garage heater. Oh I forgot I cannot work on the suburban with the door close :(

    I have the same issue in my garage also. Luckily the shop I work at has a big enough area I can work on my truck.

    I can barely squeeze my truck into the garage and close the door -- if I take up both bays and pull in catty-corner. It's got to be stupidly cold out for me to bother...

    As for the site slow-down, I noticed that after chat disappeared a lot of the regulars also reduced their frequency on the site. We don't see GMCErica, 4x4squared, AMac, Jeremy, etc. nearly as much as we used to. Even I'm here less ... because there's no one here to chat with and no instantaneous means to chat with whomever might be around. (And no good way to know who is around.) Unless I'm mistaken even Nak and Alox are here less.

    Posting and blogging just doesn't have the same cohesiveness for the regulars that chat offers. I won't be renewing my platinum support when it expires for that very reason. :(

    How come the chat got taken off anyway? I guess I joined just after it did leave.
