Unless you want to hear about some of my vintage wireless and audio adventures ;)
Well I'm sure if you got going you and Peter could rack up a good few posts on that subject :-D Dont be shy about starting up threads with limited appeal, some of my leccy ones were very slow starters but have turned out to generate a good deal of posts and a surprising number of views :-D

Whats the worst that can happen :?: ...no-one joins in and no-one views...So what, never afraid to miss, is my attitude :!: :-D

We could indeed! I will start something soon. Along with cars, I'm now very much back into my vintage electronics, predominately audio, after a very long absence...

It all started again as something to keep me occupied during lockdown and my accident recovery when I could neither run nor cycle, let alone drive...

I have a very low boredom threshold and it kept me from going stir-crazy in those crazy early days :-D

I'd start a thread here if only I had anything new and interesting to report that's not connected with my cars, my athletic activities or my bikes...

..er...I think your vintage radio thread is working with the evidence to date Jim :-D

Re: OTCL Info....87,000 posts likely today

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

:-D bit ahead of schedule another 1000 post mark will be passed on the OTCL and in a couple of posts time the 88,000 posts milestone will be passed. At 1000 posts per month the FCF is an active interesting and enjoyable forum. The higher the number rises in my opinion the better it gets so as ever....

Join in if you can :-D with posts/pictures/replies and the holy grail.....become a thread starter :-D

Plenty threads to mop up your pictures and contributions, and if there isnt a thread on a subject you find interesting start one :-D

Today the Off Topic Chat Lounge passed the 90,000 posts landmark today, and over the course of 21 days racked up the last 1000 posts.

Excellent stuff, and well done contributors and viewers.

The forum flows at that sort of participation level, but the more the better in my view.

So when you visit, join in and post, there should always be something that's easy to contribute to or comment on, and if there's not.....start something..... :-D

Magic :D I try to do my best to contribute to the OTCL part of this fine forum Neil ;)

I must say, since I've been back on and active again I'm really enjoying the forum immensely, especially the OTCL :D

Today the Off Topic Chat Lounge passed the 91,000 posts landmark today, and over the course of 16 days racked up the last 1000 posts.

Bit of an acceleration with the odd new interesting thread, amongst the old favourites.

Dont know when 92,000 posts was reached on the OTCL but missed it. The flurry of posts on the FCF Musical Advent Calendar bludgeoned through the 92,000 barrier and now we are at 92,390. May even double our usual activity to 2000 by the end of the month and get through the 94,000 mark in double quick time.

More joiners in always needed, always good to have something new to look at/comment on/ participate in when you log in.

Well done everyone..
