Is this forum still active?

Hello.

Alright, so I just joined because I really think I can get some good advice on my "condition." But there's an ieensy little problem...

I've only noticed a couple people floating around these boards, and most of them are "guests."

Can someone here give me a good estimate of just how active this forum is? I'd like to think there are people here (more than one or two) who I can talk to and can give me their honest opinions.

Just curious. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, it just seems like a valid question to me.

Re: Is this forum still active?

Right now, there are 73 registered members online, so...

I guess it depends on what you would define as "active." It seems pretty active to me. Especially for what is likely a Saturday night for the majority of members.

Re: Is this forum still active?

Today we've had 379 active users online (registered members that actually sign on to their account during the day) and we have had several thousand unregistered users viewing the forum as guests.

Re: Is this forum still active?

I suppose a good way to change that is to post and help build a stronger community.

Remember, we DO have ADHD. We aren't always consistent in keeping up on things.

Re: Is this forum still active?

^.^ glad to hear that. Just curious; I kinda posted this without looking at the bottom first. I tend to overlook details like that sometimes. Before I joined, I couldn't see the list of how many people were online, so I was just a bit concerned. Thanks for clearing that up, everybody.

Re: Is this forum still active?

Depends on your point of view, but I'd say this forum is pretty active. I assure you that if you post something you will most likely get a response.

I'd say that's pretty typical of most forums too.

And yes, this forum is active. The part that makes it active is the community part...which requires participation, and giving not only taking. A lot of the fly by posters come here to get answers and that's it, which is fine too, but it doesn't really make for activity.

Re: Is this forum still active?

For all all the three and a half years I have been on here, the forum has always been a very busy and active place and people come here for many different reasons and they find many answers here.

Re: Is this forum still active?

Perhaps one of the most important things to consider when joining a new online community. Level of activity is a major factor in my decision to join any given community. Too often do I see dead threads resurrected because of an inactive community and new users who don't know how to read posted dates.

Here it's different though. So many active guests and registered users answering questions and participating in discussions. I'm surprised to say that seems hard to achieve nowadays without having to deal with heartless anonymous trolls. You all do a good job here though. I'm certainly happy to count myself among a list of newly active of members

You could estimate that yourself by looking at the recent posts, how many replies they have and how long ago the replies were posted.
