    I am guessing that is a function of its users, not the forum itself. I admit I have been seeing more random stuff that I do not feel are relevant to the forum and feel more like the kind of thing that belongs in twitter. However, I just do not read those threads and it is fine!

    I think it's a combination of things, not the least of which include the last 12 or so, almost unprecedentedly, insane months. But this is still a relatively sane bastion of calm and intellect compared to twitter, facebook (neither of which I use or participate in) and the internet-at-large.

    With that said, the 'ole neighborhood definitely doesn't look quite like it used to.

    Forgive me, but I didn't understand this at all? What is jumping the shark?

    Yes. And I wouldn't blame the world events of the past year.

    Originally used to describe TV shows that used gimmicks to retain their audience (started with Happy Days) but more broadly it describes the point at which you know something will never be as good as it once was.

    Jumping the shark... what a great expression. People with too much time on their hands looking for an outlet. I've seen it on other forums once the active user based drops to certain level it becomes more about socializing then debating ideas then escalating into squabbles as it become more personal. I haven't been paying attention so it hasn't bothered me.

    There are two threads going right now that have derailed to
    -4K tripod heads ha ha and
    -business practice
    The latter worth discussing but not the topic

    Users should maybe think a little harde about keeping banter in the cafe.

    Can I note the irony that this very topic / thread has nothing to do with video production?
    Big sources matter.
