SB

But you are not the only member of the forum, and nobody is saying that anybody has to be on here for hours on end. But I come on here on and off all day and there is hardly ever anybody on here of late. It seems to have dropped off drastically since Christmas. Up until the we were consistently at the top of Xobors top 500 websites. Since then I don't think we have been top once, in fact we have trouble maintaining the top ten.

You are absolutely correct Phil, as you know I keep saying we need some new members, some new and fresh blood I would be happier if we could double our membership, it would increase the chance of finding someone else on line. my main problem is my hours of work I get up early and usually go to bed around 9-9.30pm. I used to enjoy coming on early morning before going to work but was criticised for it. I had a meeting on Monday ( I attend several ) and I was out last night, I actually really enjoy visiting this forum and I think we are a good bunch of friends. Now we can't all be on here at the same time (God forbid) it would be a great shame if it was to fail. I think it unlikely what we have to do is until we can increase membership, if we visit the site and it's quiet, just accept it, just leave a comment and come back later. SB

Nobody knows better than me that all forums have quiet times, of course they do. When I write up the results of the survey I have a few suggestions of my own that I will make. Yes I also think that our main problems is shortage of members. So that is something we have to get around. We have to ask why other forums do nit seem to have a problem attracting new
members. Even the ones with far less daily posts than this one manage to attract new members daily. I also have a theory about this as well, but these are issues that we must address if we want the forum to succeed.

I would like to say this was by no means all about me, I have just been speaking generally. I do receive pm's from other people with varying views. Everyone should do what they want.

Phil I hav'nt had a chance to reply to the survey. mainly because I have been reading it and re reading it. I am happy with the forum as it is, it has been fine tuned over 12 months and although some may find change favourable, I wouldn't like to see change just for changes sake. SB

I have noticed on other forums that boast thousands of members only a very small percentage ever bother to post . It's a friendly place here and you may change the feel of it by attracting more members . On BF a few weeks ago there was an influx of members who were quite aggressive and although it livened things up briefly could have caused quite a bit of bad feeling . I'm sure we can all look after ourselves but a bad atmosphere probably wouldn't help then again you can't handpick your membership
