Ford Falcons are not, near, as popular as A-Body Mopars, Camaros etc., but I'm surprised at the little activity on This Forum.

I was thinking the same thing except its the Mustang guys. There is a ton of guys asking question on the Mustang forums and hardly anybody here in Falcon Land? Must be because the Falcon guys are smarter than Mustang guys and don't need the help.Ford Falcons are not, near, as popular as A-Body Mopars, Camaros etc., but I'm surprised at the little activity on This Forum.
Yeah, there’s alot of guys asking questions on the Mustang forum, but not really much at all about the old ones, just the new ones. I’ve also noticed all the old Mustang projects for sale online, and cheap. I think the new mustangs overshadowed people’s desire for the old stangs judging by the number of them out there for sale. The Falcon, on the other hand, has no new re-issue, and the supply of old falcons and comets is pretty skimpy these days. If you can find one it’s either so far gone that you don’t want to bother with it, or it’s just too expensive to touch. Everyone saved the mustangs, which became sort of undesirable, and left the falcons go for scrap which made them rare and desirable, which makes the Falcon guys rare by association. Either that or there’s only a few of us weirdos around.I was thinking the same thing except its the Mustang guys.

Agreed, that's why my first 2-3 posts have pictures. Forums usually consist of people who need advice on doing something they haven't done before. And need opinions on what to buy and what brand. Also some that know a lot about cars come here to share what they've done for the people looking for help. And then you have the people that just want to talk with people with common interests.Actually there has been an uptick of Falcon posters in the last few months. RPM you are one of those.
This forum isn't that big. 13,000 users with 5000 in the last 4 years. Most of the previous users left this forum and never came back due to changes in forum ownership. If you look at the number of users and the number of threads/posts Dominick's statement has some validity. The number of users is similar and the number of threads/posts is lower than other forums.
Not sure how to improve engagement. But pictures do have a piece in that. More pictures do get others to engage.
