Puffy - I dont think chat activity is a useful measure of a site's value as a reference for activities! Facebook is great for short attention spans, but is DREADFUL (IMHO) for announcing activities more than 1 day in advance. I'm with DBreefs on this issue. Event info placed on a forum is much easier to find days or weeks later; forums are far more useful as a bulletin board for events, as long as they pop up in Google searches. RAS abandoned its forum as everybody drifted into Facebook. and Charlotte Aquarists had the same thing happen; their forum still exists, but no new posts in months. There's now a backlash (among those who like real information more than vacuous chatter) wanting a forum again. I'm encouraging them to use THIS one rather than trying to resurrect an abandoned one.
