Unhappy Not much action here. Why for?

I check in every day to see wassup, and "No new posts."

Has our community died? Or is everyone too busy?

I think there was enough energy expended over the years by some posters in being skanky (that is, mean) that it turned off many folks. Regenerating interest is much harder once you lose it in the first place.

So then, it takes a bit of extra effort in finding ideas for new posts that will inspire a response to bring back on board the old posters, as well as entice new ones (those new drop-ins that are asking more than where to eat on vacation or if we know of a cheap place to rent).

Meanwhile, my collage age children are into much more anonymous, quick-style-postings and forums, where you don't expect to get to know the personalities and interests of others. Maybe that is the current wave, not this sort of forum where we interact with old friends (and foes)? Are we just the "old folks" with the dinosaur-style-postings?

Amati: True. Some very mellow people haven't been around for awhile. I've done more than my share of disagreeing (being disagreeable?). I may be partly the cause for my concern.
I even noticed Helen is missing; she posted her meals daily. Maybe it's the busy season.

Default Re: Not much action here. Why for?

While waiting for the tea water to boil, I did some checking for no reason other than killing time.
In the past year, there have been 10 new "introductions".
Their interest each seemed short lived.
2 posts (over 1 day)
1 post
3 posts (over 3 days)
9 posts (4 days)
5 posts (2 days)
3 posts (2 days)
4 posts (13 days)
2 posts (2 days)
And the record-maker in the past 12 months for a newbie, 17 posts (12 on first day, 4 that were 2 weeks later, and 1 that was 8 months later).

Humm, that is only 9 posters .... well, the point remains the same, there is little retention of new posters who have used the intro thread.

They like the mean tweets.

Thankfully nobody I personally know of enjoys offensive tweets. The forums the "youngsters" participate in are forums that have quick-turn-around-time posts & responses, aimed for those who are online at the moment.

Unhappy Re: Not much action here. Why for?

I think all the opinions expressed here are somewhat valid. But I have an additional comment. I think that this site has lost the interest of many, including myself, since many of the posts have become nonsensical and illogical. It is getting more and more difficult to find comments and expressions of opinions that are somewhat meaningful.

Well, who would? (I had to look that up: Can We Bring Back Hog Cheese?.)
