Thread Name: The future of Mudcat. What do YOU think?
Subject: RE: The future of Mudcat. What do YOU think?
The MC is a time consumer and after spending far to much time being a part of the MC community, I have finally brought myself to a point where I can thread creep and respond on occassion. I use to believe that the MC was a healthy hang out but the sense of community comes and goes.
To my dissapointment, I have communicated to our leader requesting some feedback on auctions, no response, Have contacted the other(DT) leader about offering some used LPs, no response. The sense of community seems to be limited to an East coast clickish group. (my percieved opinion).
The Internet does allow us all the opportunity to participate and be a part of the community. Another dissappointment came to me by way of a thread that cried, "WOLF"? We all spun into a furry with the threat of legal actions from the Fox Agency. A big move to panic and most responded to sending money for legal defense. Did I miss an explanation of what happened? (Must have)
The future will survive because it really is a comfortable place to settle in and relax with folks that have the same common interest you have. I am listening to the "live" radio show and finding it VERY GOOD and really appreciate the non-commercial approach and the live music is like being at a Song Circle. The music is real and offers a good many songs you will never find on the money motivated air waves.
To sum it all up, there are far more positve reasons for survival than dissappointments. The MC will be around for a long time. With or without Mudjack or any one else who visits from time to time.
