Next month will be 20 years old, but it seems like the site my have run its course and people have moved on. With no discussion for almost half a year it may be time to sunset the website. If anybody is still reading this then I will take any feedback into consideration before making a final decision.

Hey Fraser

Regardless of the future of this webpage thanks for providing a platform for banter, serious discussions and even official stuff

Ahead of its time when it started... if this is it, then huge thanks to Fraser & team for the platform, and same to all the other denizens for the years of entertainment and occasional useful thread.

If however sparking this conversation reminds everyone of the value of one single place where we all hang out rather than being scattered across a million different social media, then Long Live Maptalk!! :-D

Cheers, Fraser, a visit to Maptalk was one of the first things I did when logging on each day for many, many years. Sad to see it unused, but life seems to have moved on. Thanks for being ahead of the game all those years ago.

This site no longer is as active because the NZOF made a completely useless site that gets used even less.

Get things correct Greg - its ONZ :-p

Was it at the time?

Who ever they are, no one looks or posts anything on either site, and if you want to know when events are on, you actively have to go searching for them. No surprise that the best attended events for the past 3-4 years are the ones that have actually done some form of advertising rather than just hoping people to somehow know about the event and enter

Cheers Fraser for all the work over the years.

It seems maptalk has run its course (pun intended).
Pity as attempts to create a forum in otherways have failed.
From what I can tell.. Nopesport (UK) and Attackpoint (US) seem to be still active.

I don't know what the answer is. The down side is that it can be hard to find out information about what other people / clubs are doing unless you have personal contacts.

Thanks Fraser for all the work to establish and maintain this forum over so many years.

Thanks Fraser, what a fine orienteering communication platform Maptalk has been over the years.
