Going... Going.. (almost) Gone.....

I checked the number of people on the forum at the bottom of this page when I logged in, and it was 34....   checked it about an hour ago... and it was 28.... now I see there are only 24..

aside from that fact that you know that 34 is more than 28 not sure what you're trying to say?

...and at least one of those is only there because it's easier to stay logged in all the time.

Just that there doesn`t seem to be much interest in the forum..... even though PlusNet has let "non-believers" log in ! ! ..

 

maybe the new forum style has some effect, but I am sure that it used to be a lot more active under the old system... Perhaps it`ll pick up after tea time tonight, when all the "working class" people come home, and find there`s nowt interesting on the telly, they will come flocking by to enjoy the company of others Smiley

Not everyone sits at their computer 24/7 refreshing the forum every few minutes, so the numbers are bound to go up and down depending on what people are doing... Grin

Re: Going... Going.. (almost) Gone.....

Or perhaps it's more to do with the type of topics posted ?

For example if  I posted the topic of, Was Obama right to comment on the forthcoming referendum on the EU ?

Then I am likely to get more replies than if I ask, What are you doing today ?

On the old forum posts could run to many pages on some topics but few run to more than a couple of pages on this new forum.

And if you did, I'd reply. NO, NO, NO.

That proves my point as you were prepared to comment on one suggested post but not the other.

People coming home from work now.... got a glut of members now... -  34  ! ! ! ... what sort of ratio is that, to the number of PlusNet subscribers  ? ?

Re: Going... Going.. (almost) Gone.....

@gleneagles - I was going to duck out of replying but the forum certainly isn't as 'cozy' as it was under SMF, and the real topics like the Obama one simply aren't being posted. Yes, I know I could have posted it myself and I honestly did think about it, but TBH I thought I'd be wasting my time, as no one would reply. Or it would simply end up a Pro / Anti American bun fight.

In all honesty, I know that opening up the forum to non plusnet subscribers has been unpopular, but Im not sure why anyone would come to an ISP forum and join up unless they were a member.  Its pretty low risk in my view
