It's gonna be a banner day-- RailDawg has questions and on the Eastern board, someone is asking if other people like trains. Yes, really. Meanwhile, Lance has awakened to another day of believing legions of paying members are awaiting a photo post from him, akin to Taylor Swift releasing a new version of one of her songs. Of course, what he doesn't realize is that all those photos he's junking up the forums with cost money to store.
The reality is that forums such as Trainorders and even this one right here are on the verge of death because unless the site owner is willing to fund a place for foamers to talk about nothing and dump their photo memory cards for all to see, the business model is dead. I was recently talking with a friend who runs a major fan site and the ad revenue has absolutely disappeared for railfan sites. They are losing major money and the future is not sustainable. Even charging what he does for membership, I will guarantee Todd is barely covering his costs, if at all.
