We can all agree that the forums on here are far past their golden age. The culture may have changed since then but the freeskiing community has always remained tight and we continue to put out really innovative content. There's lots of discussion about why we're losing users on the forums, even from eheath and bishop, and we never really seem to have a good answer except that newschoolers is clearly having the most success through their instagram account. I'm looking through their account right now and they don't even mention the forums, which are really the root of most freeskiing content. I think if NS did a little more to advertise the forums and make them seem appealing we would gain a lot of members without really having to change anything. Sure we'd get some jerrys but what would this site be without them?
tl;dr: I'm tired of seeing people with newschoolers stickers, overcoming my crippling anxiety, and then being told they don't use the site.
