I'd like to encourage new and old members to post more.

It just seems so slow lately and I dont want this place to fade away into nothingness. If you are a newer member do not be afraid to post or ask whatever you need or post about whatever is going on with you. If it doesnt fit into a category easily, then post it here in chit chat. We need to get this place hopping again for all our sake. Older members let it out! Post about topics you want to discuss or even debate...topics that are near and dear to you. They do not have to be deep dark topics and you do not need to be hurting to feel like you have a "right" to post. Good stuff is welcome too. I want to show the newer members that this place is active but also keep us all engaged.

Re: I'd like to encourage new and old members to post more.

The site errors which go year after year without getting sorted out doesn't help matters either. People will create accounts, try to log in at "addforums.com" and it won't work, so they'll assume the site is down. They won't think to go to "addforums.com/forums" to sign in.

If I'm logging in from a different computer (like today) I click on "private messages" which takes me to the forum. I don't know if that would work for
a new poster who doesn't have any private messages yet.

This REALLY frustrates me.


I mean it doesn't effect my specifically because I know better. But for someone who doesn't...it's just like you say, they might think the site's not working and just move on. Lord only know how many people have tried to check out the forums through addforums.com only to give up because the site is seemingly broken.


grrrr

I sometimes have to click other links to get to the main section which doesn't work sometimes.

Re: I'd like to encourage new and old members to post more.

Im sorry I haven't been around much. I've got so many threads going as well where I haven't replied to people. I feel really guilty about that. I've been really busy though I'm spending way too much time reading stupid opinion pieces in the guardian.

Unfortunately I'm in the wrong time zone so when I'm here everyone is asleep or busy. I'm in GMT +8. It's 8am

Re: I'd like to encourage new and old members to post more.

I think you are absolutely right. I've seen it happen with other sites. I have not been on this site for awhile but it is helpful and very worthwhile. I will try

Re: I'd like to encourage new and old members to post more.

I'm pretty sure at this point people are sick of me posting so much.

If the site needs to be fixed I'd volunteer but it sounds like no one around has access to it.

I'll keep on a' postin' tho.

This is exactly how I feel about myself here.

.When I'm being active I do post a lot...but it's like I come across as too much...because not very many other people are posting anymore.
Back when we had tons of active, regular, members...I could post tons and tons of posts, but it never became overwhelming because there was just so many other people posting that I didn't come across as overwhelming. I just got drowned out by all the other posters...I didn't seem so loud, and even though I'd posts tons of posts...so did tons of other people so it didn't seem like I was over posting.

Gah...does that even make sense?

Re: I'd like to encourage new and old members to post more.

I never get sick of people posting. I’ve always been more of a lurker than a poster. That’s got even worse now that I have a full-time job. At least it’s summer, so you might see me around a little bit more now.

Re: I'd like to encourage new and old members to post more.

Anyone who feels you post too much psycho or Lynne can go f**k themselves... this is a support forum.. give and take. Sometimes we need more than we can give and thats ok. Other times we can give advice out the whazoo and not need any ourselves. Other times we need a whole lotta help. Its no ones business why, and no one owes anyone an explanation as to why they post a lot or a little. Sometimes I get distracted with life stuff and drop off for a few days and return with gusto. My mornings early, are my best hours so I can spend an hour and half or so answering other posts. I do it because I feel its my duty to share what I can and give support considering it was given to me when I was new or in need.

I admit I backed off a bit because of grieving deeply about a certain little feline girl of mine who meant the universe to me <3
