It's seems to me there is a lot less post on here since the new layout.
Or is it just me?

Posts are down sitewide from what I've seen. Not sure why so many are having an issue with it. I like this new format and I'm a pretty low tech guy.

I'm not crazy with this new site............The International Mustang BULLITT Owner's site is now the same and absolutely horrible to navigate. A lot of older members don't post any longer..............
If it's not broken.............don't let some Chinese Company fix it!
Sooner or later you will see tons of ads on here and a few posts here and there!
See IMBOC.com

Matt & Bill did just that late last year, not too many posting there at first, but since the change here, there certainly are more new posts there than here.

Donot blame it on the new foremat, the site has changed long before this. I came here in 2002 to learn about Contenders, and I did. I no longer see this as a gun site, it is a site where venom can be spread easily. I differed with a political post and was called a troll, because of that difference of opinion. People like Conan the assarian, have their following and spread their venom. This site has no future. Good Bye!

I think a lot of people, probably especially the older ones, aren't real thrilled with the software change.

I checked out the other site again. I had checked it out back when it first came up. H&R Classifieds last posts are still from 2014, except one from 2019. From what could tell, posting seemed to be even lower than on this site. A thread I replied to yesterday on this site is also on the other site, but last post there in that thread is from 2019. Maybe some forums are more active than others. I never understood the point of running 2 sites, each a shadow of the other and splitting everything & everyone into 2 sites. First splitting into 2 sites, then changing software, seems to have caused quite a fracturing of the community here.

There were some names on this site who used to post regularly (Korean War vet - don't recall his name, Dee from Texas, Doublebass from NH, to name a few) - haven't seen anything from those guys since the change here. Yeah, there was some bickering name-calling, but I just ignored it & moved on. Some sites gives users the ability to mark a user's posts to be invisible. Perhaps that's all that's needed to eliminate the problem when others want to leave because of insults.

This site is CANADIAN owned now, not Chinese.

BS Flag on the field. Come On Man! By your own admission and the site's counter, you've wracked up an unimpressive 90 posts in 18 years! Tell us how much it hurt your feelings. Conan left almost a year and a half ago. You seem awfully thin skinned. The members test the validity of opinions here and you didn't defend yours? Own it! You've mostly been INACTIVE here so, No Net Loss.

The news and editorial departments have suffered a decline. Oh well. At least the Trolls went with them.

Matt explained the reason he created the GBO Reloaded site and the history of Graybeard Outdoors.

For site navigation help or feature tutorials see the FAQ in the 3 dot top right menu or in help at the bottom of most pages.

I originally joined in 2003 and I use to post when it was a hunting and fishing site. Over the years it became a Political site and if you didn't agree with a few posters you were a troll. I remember a few years back lamenting about the severe lack of any posting firearm related, I was told it was because of the wrong time of the year. Well apparently there is no right time of the year as it you look at firearm sections there is nothing there.

As far as ads go I have never had a problem with them as I run ad blockers.

The GBO Reloaded is the same as this site, I posted a few times on gun related topics and now the same crowd that was here posting on political topics are there and that is all there is on there anymore. Both are dead forums!
