Just trying to see if there are any planted tank people around. This forum was once the one to go to, but it has seemed to have been dying. So where you at at where are you going?
I tried Reddit: r/PlantedTank --but, didn't care for it. ( Same with Facebook, Instagram). It may have a more modern interface which appeals to many, but I could not get it to work for me. With "work" I mean give me the satisfaction that I receive from a forum type format. I need the feel of "a community"- no other interface gives that to me as well as a forum-based model. Not saying that others cannot find this on social media, but it is not the format for everyone.I too prefer forums but whether it’s the longer form nature (which I prefer as it lets us get in depth) or that the interface isn’t as clean and modern as apps, forums definitely seem to be on the decline unfortunately. I don’t use FB and begrudgingly use Instagram, but i find IG is very surface level and curated pics.
I feel like reddit is a good compromise, it’s got good activity and you can get a bit deeper but has more modern UX: r/PlantedTank.

Agreed.This forum is still a living, thriving community. It may have lost some members to social media-- but, that doesn't mean it has lost its value.
This could be true. The younger generation has grown up in a far different world than I did.I'm wondering if age doesn't play a huge role in which format people are most comfortable using. I have a feeling if we took a survey, a large percentage of the folks here would be an older demographic than the groups using FB etc.
