I shall start by saying, I'm quite glad that this forum still exists.
I shall add that, I have no idea how it still exists, nor who pays for the site upkeep.

How long will it last? Will it suddenly collapse one day as two of my favourite forums have in the past, losing with it, not only history, but quite often contact between people who won't use much "social media".

Though Suggers has taken a bit of a content beating over the last several months, I surely put that down to public imprisonment and not much to talk about in general.

Though, a couple of threads have become even more epicified.

Will Sugden survive?

Will it pick up again as the strength community re-gains some momentum?

I'd be sad if we lost it. I like this community and my well established part in it. I quite often find myself laughing about something funny from Sugden's history Happy

For me, Sugden would be enhanced by regular postings from the following - CAJ, JackRevans, TravisFandango.

It's great to see Wiegieboard back on here Happy

Long live Sugden!

Big C the Cardio machine, Jake Ravines and the outstanding Mr Fanny would be outstanding people to see again.

Thanks for having me back again joey yentlemen.

I have some "media" to share.

Rob must still be either running his own buisness or still keeping the server while doing other stuff ....either way , nothing is forever

I have delited my old journals (probably 5000 posts worth) as reading them back makes my toes curl and i wouldnt want my kids reading the s**t that i type


Fanny fell out with me for threatening to abduct his imaginary pet baby owl , so if he tries to return , i will ban him ...it was me who brought him here afterall.

It's the only forum I use

As far as I can tell, ALL forums are dead these days. Facebook / insta have taken over. I use Instagram everyday to be fair but I also pop onto sugden everyday

I think people just need to make more of an effort to respond to posts

So, what can be done to ensure it is kept running? Deleting posts over say 5 years old? Does us clicking on adverts bring in some revenue?

Post-script: Devto is a website company, so it looks like it's not costing him much if anything. Shall we invite a bunch of friends? Post links on social media of sugden as opposed to vice versa to bring more people in?

this.

been a member of many forums, strength and otherwise, over the years but this is the sole survivor. not bad going in the social media age.

while the lights are on the forum will survive with members posting and replying to threads. pretty simple.

IF and only if it takes a downturn, then we must hijack servers elsewhere. i.e, R/sugden

Lone Wolf's stories were priceless, I sometimes go back and read them for a good chuckle!

This is a glorious place, full of gold.

I came here originally from the now dead MuscleTalk forum, which was sent off to forum heaven by the big wigs.

Same. I think I came here quite by accident, or possibly because WillSan was telling me about the website and Strongman stuff? Bet you don't remember that Mr Sanders.

Is Muscletalk completely gone now then? Wasn't a bad forum tbf.

Sadly MT is gone and there is no arcvie either... I was a long time poster on there, and even mod there in the final few years, so was mildly involved in the discussions behind the scenes to try and keep it going. Sadly though, it just was not viable and in the end, the plug was pulled. Sad times, but life goes on.

Apart from Reddit subforums, I guess that most strength forums will be moderately surviving zombie communities like this. Are, or were there any domestic competing forums to Sugden? I came here because I found nothing else.
