Future of Germanlook.net

Hey guys, what should we do with the site? I don't mind keeping it going, but it's not being used very much. It seems like we have a few options:

1. Do nothing, keep Germanlook.net going
2. Move to a forum on ShopTalkForums.com (try to preserve our history if possible)
3. Shut down the site

Again, I'm totally fine keeping it going, just wanted to see what you guys think.

Been coming here since 2002. Do so more and more infrequently the last few years as the activity has significantly dropped off. My vote would be to move it back to ShopTalkForums.com and try to preserve as much of the history as possible.

Hi

After a very long time a little life has moved in here now and I also write a few lines from time to time, it would be a pity if the page disappears.
Should it be the money, a solution would have to be found.

I for one, still like it.
Once that Facebook hype is over and people realise they only get quality and reachable infos on these BB fora, people will return.
That's my opinion and I am stcking to it ;-)

Hello, what is being said now, as to keeping GL as is, I vote for that. If it comes to having to aid with helping with the cost, I'm still for keeping GL as is. Please don't change.

I don't frequent as often anymore, but the Aircooled hype is still strong.

Seems like my local vw folk that were here years ago are now just yapping on our whattsapp group. Instant pics and replies, but we lose the global experience and feedback.

I put this post on the German Look Volkswagen page on Facebook

"Hi, the German Look forum is not getting as many visitors as it used to. It's a valuable resource and unlike Facebook questions and answers, they don't disappear after a few days, so go and have a look, do a search and you will often find great answers there."

A few people didn't know this forum existed

Please keep this site going. I love STF, but it's very quiet over there too. I still reference a lot of the older topics on here.

Facebook is, and always will be, for all intents and purposes a one-way communication device. Like buttons and all that crap.

People just aren't into cars anymore like they used to be. Or doing anything for that matter that involves more than swiping a finger on a touch screen. Sigh.
