Default Trackshare done

Was just on there today. Addm started a thread stating that the site is done. Will likely shut down this weekend. Too bad, was a good site before they changed it

I don't think it's changes to the site that did it in because they were fairly cosmetic and it's still easy to navigate and find anything. There were usually just a small number of people posting regularly anyway. I think it's just a sign of the times where people have too many competing interests and most related activity is now on Facebook groups and there are many such in !Manitoba right now.

If you look at other provinces in Trackshare you'll see that Saskatchewan for example might have had only a couple of posts in the last 5 years. I have also reviewed Hard Core Sledder participation and it is also dead in adjacent provinces and the northern states have hardly any posts on their state HCS forums so that's why you'll see some American posts on the Manitoba HCS.

i've been more involved with facebook groups lately as well. Certainly not as informative as this site, but not bad overall.

Facebook groups suck for technical data, searching is a lost cause, the death of forums is very sad.

Not the well run groups...Files sections are full of free info on many good groups. If group members are handing out false information they need to be booted or muted. Just as on forums, The groups are only as good as their Mods. and Admins.

So what was the consensus on Trackshare? Are ATVs allowed on SnoMan trails?

lmao, you'll never get that across to those clowns, i'm a farmer/landowner and atvers"tracksharers" think its all theirs to abuse, i got a whole shed of quads and thats not my way, to destruct someone else's property. I live out in central manitoba but anytime i come to the east trails early in the year you can tell under the snow its ripped to shit, never use to be like that.

Even the best userbase imaginable can't make the format stop sucking. Ever tried to search for something you saw 2 days ago on an active FB group? It's fucking gone. Unless it gets archived in a "files" or similar folder, it's just a mess. So unless you are taking part in a conversation live, that knowledge just disappears down the rabbit hole forever.
