Slowing Down
3 years ago, December 1st 2016 No: 1 Msg: #198865  
Has anyone else found the lack of new questions of the using of these forums is declining quite quickly. I remember when i first joined and traveled in 2012, a question would be answered in all categories relatively quickly, though now can take weeks meaning you've already been to the place you needed the answer for.
Seems a shame as this is such a good tool for people on the road. In truth i've not been on here so much recently but i will add my voice once more, maybe people like me have been the problem.
Thanks

Hi Dan,

Welcome back!
One initiative we introduced to try and increase forum activity is a regular highlighted forum in the Control Panel newsfeed. Looking forward to seeing you around more.

Hi Dan,

Yes, we're also considering putting a "stop" on very old posts to allow for the popular questions to be reposted again (afresh). This would allow for new, updated feedback. Still, it's true that the forums have always been the most challenging thing to keep moving -- and the only way to keep it going is by posting new topics, so you're also more than welcome to post new questions, or respond if you have an answer to questions folks ask.

If you or anybody else have ideas/suggestions on how you think we could do this -- considering for the fact that we are a free website and run with quite a small team -- we are all ears! 😊

For newer bloggers who may be reading this -- participating in the forums is a great way to get your reputation increasing which allows for more perks in the website (e.g. visibility from more folks seeing your profile, folks appreciating your feedback, and moderators noticing your participation).

Thanks,

I have found that there is an ebb and flow to how often people participate in the forums.
I read a few of your blogs and really enjoyed them. I hope you will begin to blog again.

Hopefully, if you post a question we will answer it quickly. Reply to this
