I have a feeling that Facebook has a lot to do with it.Seems like most members have found other members of this site and talk to others members on Facebook about MOTIV.Or they go to the official MOTIV Facebook page to talk. Or the other MOTIV bowling group page.

And if that's not enough,seems like all the members are finding out the information about the products,drillings,etc. from staff members on Facebook.

Most staff members seem to be absent on this forum.It used to be that most members would be here,along with fans talking everything concerning MOTIV.
Not too many staff members on here any longer.That is very sad.

A new ball is coming out,and there isn't ant chatter on this site.The said ball,was used to win the first PBA title for MOTIV and Jake Peters.But still not much buzz on the site.In the past this site would have exploded.

I don't know if we can get it back again,but I'm missing all the daily chatter of a year or so ago.

You can't blame all this silence on staff members or bowlers being busy with tournaments, summer, etc.because most are always on facebook.They just seem to forget that this forum is useful.Most information posted on FB about a drilling or info on a ball is only seen for part of the day, then is forgotten.The items on this forum stays.I don't know if it's possible to get this forum back to what it was less than a year ago.But I like the chatter of days gone by.

Thanks Mike.You Have been a consistent contributor to this forum.What I'm trying do do here is not necessarily trying to get staff members back here,but all the other members back.
Once they found that the members would answer them on FB,this forum became almost obsolete.
But those posts disappear fast.The questions and answers that appear on this forum stay.That's why it's a great source of information.
If it becomes empty,why have the forum.I'm just trying to keep it from dying.
With all the growth and success MOTIV is experiencing lately,you would think this forum would be hot.
I'm just one person that loves this company,and is trying to help.

Sorry guys I know that I was on here a lot but now working the graveyard shift doesnt leave much internet time, but please know that everyone at MOTIV and staffers are going to put a heartbeat back into theses pages. In the meantime if you have any questions shoot them our way, with the exception to the questions that Brett stated:
"Feel free to ask whatever you'd like in this thread. Keep in mind, there are some things that we can't answer, such as:
- Upcoming Releases
- Staff Pricing
- How Neo-Mark graphics are made (we don't know)
- And any other inside information that staffers are not allowed to share.

I hope this is a helpful thread that fills the need that I've been hearing.

Regards,
Brett"
