Forums: Making the rounds

February 23, 2020 01:24PM avatar
Sven,

I've been a long time member of Findmall and like you, have found fewer folks gathering there lately.

Like others, I was disappointed to see the Tesoro and White's forums terminated. Loss of both those forums (with whites sub-forums for various models) diminished what findmall had to offer those of us that hang out on the forums. Many Tesoro and Whites machines are floating around on the used market. It is beneficial as a detectorists to be able to go back thru old posts and beef up on ones detector knowledge with a recently acquired 'oldie'.

Another detracting factor, during the introduction of Minelabs new equinox, there was a lot of combativeness on findmall that was left completely unchecked. Trolls will gather where they're allowed. Cage fighting at its finest. For me, it became a place I frequented less and finally avoided. I migrated over to Steve Herschbach's Detector Prospector forum and found welcome relief. It hasn't been the same going back to findmall though the combativeness has settled down. Different group of folks now.

Today, I spend most of my time here on Monte's forum as I continue to seek improvement in my old west detecting knowledge and skills. I like the folks that frequent here, the knowledge and skills they have that they willingly share. I also keep a close eye on Detector Prospector, the Friendly Metal detecting forum and Dankowski as I'm trying to improve and expand my water detecting / abilities equipment. I visit the places the water hunters hang out.

Lastly, the Classified Section of findmall was a big attractor. With the turn down in the used market, prices have bottomed out. Recent new offerings with much more bang-for-your-buck makes it hard to sell older detectors for much, just very little current interest in used detectors.
