The problem with many forums and especially the Vintage Forums is that you have to visit them to see new posts and there is no decent mobile client. I do visit the Vintage Forums but miss out on many others Atari, Mercedes-Benz, 3D-Printing to name but a few, as these all require explicit visits to see posts. I really don't understand why Forums are better than UseNet news.
For me the big advantage of Facebook is that I can see everything on one page, and of course VCF is there. If you want to attract new members then I believe you need to be on Facebook.

There is no Mail interface to VCF for me a bigger step backwards....
