    Just wondering, this place used to be a bubbling forum but now it seems to be a bit quiet lately.

    Is this because of Facebook or people spending more time on other social media platforms?

    It's a shame really as it was an awesome place to make local friends.

    Any suggestions on how we could get in busy again?

    The numbers on the old Leeds Music Forum were dwindling long before the merge. Forums in general aren't well attended these days. Compared to some, this is still an active forum.

    Most of my friends from LMF tend to interact on other forms of social media.

    There is an alternative. There's a group on facebook called "Leedsface" where people post several times an hour about the latest traffic gripes, missing pets and local crime. Recent popular popular post that got 29 responses was "hi anyone awake"

    I've seen that, it's mainly people whining about cyclists.

    There's plenty of absolute dimwits on there but it's quite well moderated to be fair, considering its size. Obviously the moderators get tons of stick because we live in an era of alt-right manchildren who think they're being 'censored' by the 'PC brigade' all the time.

    We need to get a few good arguments going...

    Like the olden days? ha. It could get so stressy on LMF at times. I'm a lot more laid back than I used to be with it. I can't handle the drama now. My job is too stressful for all that ha. I do like a good debate though.

    Do you have a distinction between an argument and a debate?

    I suppose in a debate you are open or at least appear to be diplomatic about both sides of the dispute. In an argument you're just trying to get your point across.

    Depends if it's for 5 minutes or the full half hour.
