Well I used it a lot (myspace) til it changed out of all recognition and now has rendered itself useless to my needs, If Mudcat has changed in the ten or so years I have been here it has evolved with tweaks rather than arbitrary re-write that turns the site and it's use on its head. Not against new folk forums at all but for the most Mudcat ticks boxes. Firstly it connects me with people with similar interests world wide and has facilitated in meeting up people and travelling to the four corners of the globe, secondly, for researching songs I have found no better, some very knowledgeable and tenacious folk anoraks drop in here and there is a lively discussion and amazing input from people with primary source material that isn't always on the net and anecdotal evidence which is illuminating indeed, thirdly it is easy to learn and use and requires little knowledge of tech speak, it is basically an information exchange and not a social networking website, that part has diminished as people fell out with one another.
