For a Cup final i'd reckon we'd struggle to fill 2 buses these days , back in the day it would be 7 or 8 . Not quite sure what that means but one of the things i think has changed

It would be interesting to see the age range of users and contributors. Do as many ‘younger’ fans use message boards?

Is there a bit missing off the end of this?

Such as ?
Aw, maybe no, you just meant that only filling two buses is one of the things that's changed? I thought the last sentence was going to be "one of the things I think has changed is....". Just me being slow.

Probably should have put a full stop . Used to be a bit of a community feel around here where people who otherwise wouldn't know each other became friends and looked forward to a meet up , well a piss up actually. I don't really see that anymore and lots of those people have vanished

I still think its a Good place, especially when compared to the other options. Still has a family feel to it I think. I maybe missed its heyday, but for sure there is less traffic now. Yeah, a few "star" posters have moved on, but let's not kid ourselves that there wasn't a few slavers back then too. 🤣.
Nothing, absolutely nothing stays the same forever, its a fact, and sadly, not many off us (me being the worst culprit) deal well with change.

lockdown hasn’t helped in terms of meet ups etc

have met a lot of folk through this site over the years who I consider friends now too many to mention

Sad to say but I think it's largely an age thing.
Message boards are VERY old school.

Most of the younger Hibs support generally post on Twitter, Instagram etc - some still even comment on Facebook threads, but only ever in a totally entitled, overreaction, hysterical manner (just read the comments after any official Hibs post for reference).

It's pretty tragic patter really. No-one can have a discussion/debate anymore it's simply a case of "I'm right, you're wrong". These are same morons that DEMAND that they deserve better after any random Hibs defeat - cos they've been hardcore Hibees since 2016....

To bring things more up to date for those of us that are still here 💚 I'd suggest a combination of the close season, lack of signings and the unprecedented last 18 months has probably taken it's toll on some posters.
And I include myself in that category!
