Over the last 6 to 8 months I have noticed a change in the content and direction of this forum. I am not saying it is bad, indifferent or good.
All I am saying is that I perceive there has been a possible philosophical and practical change from the past motif and that there seems to be a paradigm shift (paradigm - a typical example of something, an example that serves as a pattern or model for something, especially one that forms the basis of a methodology or theory, a generally accepted model of how ideas relate to one another forming a conceptual framework within a specific field of thought or research) taking place on this forum.
Now at the moment I hope you allow me to be very existential (which for the most part I am not) by responding with, "I feel there has been a change but need help in defining specifically what has changed and how."
Now I could be all wet and if so the following questions if engaged will point that out and clear things up for me to some degree.
If you have detected a change on the direction an content of this forum, what do you think it is and what direction do you think it has taken this forum?
If you have not detected a change, comment on why it has not changed and is there any direction change at all if there has not been a paradigm shift?
Let's please keep this a healthy and respectful discussion giving it much thought and consideration while being kind and please do not make this personal or be rude with you comments.
