Well I still enjoy Mountain Buzz, it's not perfect and I understand the other points, boaters have with it too. I personally have learned a lot from the excellent knowledge that is shared on here. One instance is my knowledge of leave-no-trace was definitely lacking, I explained the technique I thought was acceptable to do on the river and a poster explained to me, I was fucking the river up by doing it that way and explained the correct way. Much appreciated. The knowledge and skills of rafters posting here, to me is very enjoyable. Thanks to all, I will hang tight with MB.

Sorry, but Facebook rules with paddling discussions and sales.

Owners: do you want to sell it to someone who cares? Email me. Otherwise, quit half-assing something that used to be cool.

Yep....... you don't see any of the old school members anymore and all the posts are newbs. You pretty much hit the nail on the head.

I've tried to contact the company that owns this site with intent to buy, but I've never heard back.

it would be great to have a place WHITEWATER KAYAKERS go to find very up to date info on hazards, rapid changes, meet-ups when traveling through different areas, gears sales, access issues, trip reports, new and obscure runs, and general WHITEWATER KAYAKING info for our region without all the discussion of rafting coolers and bullshit like that. Does this type of thing exist on facebook or anywhere else? What are options for non-facebook, non-social media savvy folks? The Buzz used to be just that years ago. help....

Facebook is completely lacking for searchable content. Every post is seen as equal with comments displayed as sub-tier. Posts are sorted chronologically (I think, but I know their algorithms do some monkey business) not by most recent comment as they are in a forum. You cannot filter by content such as river hazard, lost and found, general discussion, classifieds, etc as you can on a forum setting. It's a huge problem that the paddling FB groups are lacking.

But I suppose most people have FB as part of their daily routine so it's easy to move paddling discussions there.

As a long-time lurker, rear poster, I can commit myself to contributing more to discussions here. More involvement from the community would help keep this thing alive.
