what happened here?

Is it time to just pronounce Roadfood as officially dead?

    For me, I am so busy now that the build is done and I am working, that I baely have time to check my email let alone much else.
     
    Just had to take a break today.
     
    I now understand why owners just want to do the festivals and not the day to day thing.
    The daily grind is tough.
     
    I thought the build was hard.
    I thought I wasn't going to work as hard as I did in the old days.
    I told the wife I would take it easier.....
     
    I was wrong.
    Gotta bust my chops, pay my dues, get my name out there.
    Gotta learn the ropes.
     
    Plus... I never thought it would be this popular...
     
    No, grilled cheese is not for everyone...
    But those people can just keep on walking past the lineup and go see the burger guy next to me.
    It's all good.
    As long as everyone is happy in the end.

    I really miss all of the old posters.
    Wish they would come back.
    This used to be a great site.

    I think the OP was specifically referring to the Hot dog/food truck (essentially the same thing) forums
    Although a certain "poster" or two blames me for everyone leaving...these are the real reasons people left
    1. Many former forum members have simply passed away.
    2. Many have moved on to social media
    3. Others were never on here to talk about "Roadfood" anyway, got bored and left.
    4. Several got tired of the political discussions and...
    5.When the "pied piper" of Roadfood left in a huff about 5 or 6 years ago... his followers tagged along.

    Just curious … who was the Pied Piper?

    In any case, I must say that everyone I have met through RF has been both pleasant and a pleasure.

    No idea who the "pied piper" is or was. Seems like it's time to move on.

    To your credit, your stories are never self serving.
    I must not have been paying attention; I didn’t know anyone was a food editor. :)

    Naturally, I spend more time here in the winter months. In the summertime, it's a blessing to have any time for family and friends, let alone any Internet discussions. Otherwise, this form is an amazing resource for anybody looking to get into the business and do their own build.

    Maybe I’m missing something. I’ve never seen you make a food related post in the many years you’ve been here.
    Perhaps you are the anonymous “patriot “ in the White House.

    He has contempt for most of us, so to be expected.

    I don't believe that I said anything inflammatory by saying "posters".  I don't think it's a big secret nor has it gone unnoticed that there are far fewer people posting on here than there used to be.  It used to be a fun site.
     
    I used to make food-related posts and a few trip reports years ago.  
     
    I don't really have contempt for anyone on here, and I still like reading the trip reports. 
     
    Apparently, you're bored and just trying to stir things up with me. I have no beef with you.  Sounds like you have some contempt for me.
     
    Your "anonymous patriot" comment makes zero sense.

    Obviously, I can't say "what it used to be like" but it took me weeks to get approved as a member (as of today).  But now I'm in!  I have to say some of these threads are very beneficial for people like me about to start buildout.

    Well now my interest is peaked.  Why did it take "weeks to get approved as a member"?  This is hardly an exclusive club.  Nobody ever did a background check on me back in 2004 when I signed up.  Probably to their future dismay, but that's beside the point.  Is there some new process involved?

    I'm not sure why it took 2 weeks.  But I thought the system was broken, I sent a message to the "Roadfood" facebook account asking for help, and I clicked the button that said "my account hasn't been validated" which responded to my account info saying something like "either your account has been validated OR the system is broken" lol
    But I'm thinking they figured out the problem?  Since I'm in now.  I just figured that may be part of the reason for the slowdown in posts or whatever, could have been due to technical difficulties.
