I'm pretty new here but I don't think it's so bad - otherwise I wouldn't have stuck around. All Internet forums change over time. Some evolve into something different like this one appears to have, others just fall apart and limp along with a handful of stubborn individuals or die completely. I belonged to the first Internet forum devoted to the band XTC and for a few years it was just "awesome" and I made a lot of friends all over the world that I still keep in touch with and we still get together occasionally. There was a massive breakdown by the forums ISP and there was no back-up and the whole thing was gone forever - but even before that it had changed and even though a replacement came along later it just didn't seem possible to capture the feeling of the old place... Eventually all those old-timers coalesced into a Facebook group which is the closest we've got to how things used to be.
You kind of have to face it that the "old EB", whatever that was, has probably gone forever and you either have to live with it and make the most of it or move on. what don't you like anymore? That it's not just gig posters now?
