The specific country travel forums for places that I visit a lot or live near (SF,NYC, England, Japan, etc) have always occupied a lot of my time on FT. They never take much of my time on MP. Indeed, each time I come here I only look at most at one because the wheat-chaff ratio is so low. Changes were supposed to happen on April 1, it was rumored, but nothing seems to have changed -- these forums generally cover too many countries, are filled with people posting their photos, have lots of auto-generated overly-cutesy "Nile Guide" posts, and are generally useless -- at least to me. Any changes in the air?
