How come the last post on here was 2016 ? If its not going to be updated there's little point in leaving it on here.

Andy,
Indeed!
It appears that this has moved to the Club's Website under Home / News page.
Well, mostly - January's seems to be missing, but rest (most? haven't checked) are there back to April 2013.
So yes, this sections appears to be dead.
But I'd have thought worth keeping in case anyone ever want to look up anything about an old edition?

Hey you two, we could rename it "Get a room" and leave it to you! :D

Well you could, Baz. But it wouldn't have answered my query. The thing is, when we see that people are using more arsebook than forum, for those that have come here via a search engine and/or the Imp Club Web page might be forgiven for thinking that nobody is caring enough to keep the forum up to date. This might lead to a lessening of interest.....

I believe that was my point, John.

how about putting a link that redirects the user back to the web site ?
that way the old info is still there and you know where to find the newer stuff
just a suggestion

I have noticed in recent weeks too, that some days virtually nothing is posted on the forum at all and on FB theres guaranteed a comment every minute of the day and most of the night, for that matter, shows the forum isnt the first place folk look anymore :? in deed some never look here now at all from what Ive heard, and whatever I think of FB if youre not there having the occasional look youre missing out on some bargains, rare parts that arent advertised anywhere else anymore, and interesting conversation on latest developments etc, refusing to go there and ignore it now is like shooting yourself in the foot, sad though it may be in terms of the club.

I've just started looking on FB it's very useful and for parts it's brilliant but I won't give up my membership the build threads and information are far too useful and there stored you can reference any at any time.FB
is a day to day post and that's great just use each for its own merits. On FB you don't have to pay membership which is appealing to some but in my thought they really are missing out on a great club just my view. Iam sure they will coexist together.

Some fair points but I'm not going on FB just because others won't use the Club's forum. No doubt at some point in the future I will succumb due to multiple FB groups appealing to me but not just yet. I can barely keep up with Netflix and Amazon as it is!

Never used Netflix, Amazon, and I will still stay a member of the club though, they all have their fors and againsts, And there's still only one official IMP Club 8) , unlike many other marques, you know the sort Escort Owners Club, Escort Drivers Club, Escort Enthusiasts Club, Mark Escort Club, Gay Escort Club, Escort RS Club, Escort AVO Club etc etc nightmare to chose the best one and costly to join them all. And there's probably a duplicate on FB too :shock: At least we don't have that problem?

It's either that, or get rid of the section if you ask me. :roll:
