Report Goodbye in Coffee Break Posted May 31, 2019 This is not the same forum I signed up for ten years ago. There are no discussions about stockwork anymore, an the influx of new people interested in training stockdogs has completely stopped. A few years ago I noticed this decrease in stockwork related content, and opened a topic about it. Since then it has just gotten worse.The only topics opened in the expert forum are offtopic, posted there by misstake. Anything related to stockwork is a request for information about trainers, or the announcement of a trial in a continent I am not likely to visit soon. It's mainly a pet/sports forum now, and I am not particularly interested in either. It's a pity, I really liked and enjoyed this place, lot of knowledgeable people, I learned a lot. Many people who were prepared to answer newbie questions in depth, I am grateful for the time and energy they put in it. So it is absolutely not with bitterness or resent I am leaving this place, rather with gratitude, not in the least for the people who kept this site running. A shame that people seem to look elsewhere ( I blame facebook) because I personally prefer this format over other social media. I will no doubt look into the archives now and again, but I wil sign out and stop posting after this topic has run its course. I feel at the moment time spend taking part here is rather wasted.
