Is Mountain Buzz Dead?
 
You can't sell shit here anymore. There's a couple dozen participants that haven't discovered Facebook yet. The archive answers almost any questions the community might have. We've all seen the ads. I think it's time to grow up or shut down!

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

Agreed. I've bought a raft, two frames, a kayak, and countless more gear off of here. I prefer it to facebook, but damn it's gone to shit.

I'd expect the sales section to be dead after being useless for 6+ months. I thought about starting a forum with a heart and soul for everyone you migrate to for awhile.

If you do, Please come up with a better price point for small business' to participate. The current price point does not make good business when evaluating cost vs revenue.

It must be dead.

How do I know?

The pink Yeti cooler has been discontinued yet not a peep of foul play from a single Buzzard!

That’s how!

Easy Now
 
It is having some trouble, but still works for me.
Does take some tricks to post.
I prefer to facebook or Craigslist.
Hadn't heard about the pink Yeti.....moment of silence here:(

Please do.


After seeing this and another of my favorite forums sold to Vertcial Scope (The evil Maple Syrup Sucking Empire from the Cold North), the forums run on their own inertia pretty well for a couple of years, but slowly die as the "soul" is just not there as it is when it belongs to a human and they nourish it like they would a child or a garden.

It's an insane pricing structure. Our industry is small businesses.

Facebook is OK for discuSsion, but HORRIBLE for archives. And I'd rather donate my intellectual property to another boater than to zuckerberg.
