Is it just me or does the new wildlandfire.com They Said format have reduced participation from the field?  While lumping the comments together looked cumbersome, it seemed to encourage more dialog.

    I have to agree the old format was much better. It took 11 days for your post to show up. I used to follow They Said it Daily. But now I check about once a week knowing there will probably be no updates. I belong to a group on FB and much more info comes thru that.

    Took a functioning site and flushed it down the toilet

    The only redeeming thing about this site is the Hotlist

    I agree completely. This issue has been raised before and fell on deaf ears…

    I also agree, every 7 to 10 days is often enough. Not much meat between the bread. the hotlist is the only interesting feature………. Most of us in the PNW refer to it as” California said.”

    Raised before and fell on deaf ears? Blind eyes!

    Moderators? Care to comment? Your readers have spoken. They Said has been turned into crap by the new format.

    Anyone reading this?

    Have your advertisers told you they will pay more for ads on the Hotlist vs. They Said? Well, they should!

    I this is not the vibrant and engaging original Hot List.
    I am just a fire mom but I enjoyed the conversations.
    I learned a lot following it.
    The new format does SUX.
    It is interesting that the most recent post was Aug. 30.
    Anyway, that’s my 2 cents.

    Still Lurking. Not one reply from the Owners.
    Find it real odd that nobody follows this site anymore. Not a single post from Casey or Vicki.
    Did you run off all the contributors or what?
    If I owned the Supply Cache or any other company I would save my money and find somewhere else to advertise. Like I stated above I belong to a couple groups on Facebook and information and Pics/Vids are shared in real time. By the time you update this site it is old news. Hell if you updated this site. I started noticing when you couldn’t even bother sharing info about LODD or even a green sheet about it. So since you took over this site it has spiraled the toilet bowl and it is picking up speed.

    Wow. It has been 3 months since ANYBODY posted on They Said…sad.

    By the way, I am hearing all AD’s are not available to be hired due to Trump’s Hiring Freeze.

    Carry on…

    I think the format is horrible. I’m good friends with Casey and he stated he couldn’t get in touch with the owners here. I use to advertise on here up until they changed owners. Now they want an arm and a leg to advertise. Trying to bank off of this. I just couldn’t afford it. The new owners are firefighters and that’s why stuff isn’t updated like it should be. I have t checked this site for about a year now. I use to get on it daily.
