It's slower than molasses right now. More lurking than usual though. Is this the after Christmas burn out?

You also post. In fact, you've been the most active member since Christmas. So good for you!

Shame on the rest of you! Shame shame double shame!

And a couple of "phooeys" to boot!

EDIT:

So gang, can we go on a recruiting drive? We're at 297 active members. My friend, bigtone191, joined but he and the Missus just welcomed a new child into the family so we won't see much of him for a while.

What I'd love to see if for us to get up to 300, or better still 303, and hopefully though 3-6 new folks will instill some life into this place. Can we do it?

A fun bit of trivia. It is possible to survive for two weeks straight with no internet connection whatsoever. Reminds me of the time before the internet. Doesn't help my post count of course...

Hmm. Has anyone but me noticed how dreadfully slow we are (still and/or again)?

Same old, same old. Largely lurking, little posting. We need a gimmick. Someone think of a flashy gimmick to lure in the crowds.

There was a time we got nice and friendly bots posting interesting links around here to give our sad and pointless lifes some meaning and add a bit of activity.. I wonder where they all are now and if they are still busy posting the same crap as they used to.

Same old, same old. In the past month, we've had a score of members logged in, about half of them posting.

Since it's so slow, and since the "spam kiddies" have either grown up or faded away, I think it's time to merge the spam forum with open discussion. That will give us seven sub-forums. Seven is a nice, mystic number.

Any objections?

Didn't think so.

This operation will commence some time during your various subjective timezones, as you humans count things.

Timezones are fun.

I once left Wellington at 18:00 and arrived at 16:00 in Los Angeles on the same day :)

Well, it has been done. The Gospels and Open Discussion have been merged and there's no going back.

*sigh*

It's times like these when I wonder why I even keep the forums. Then I remember... I keep hoping that people will stop lurking and start posting and that someday, we might actually have an active community that actually acts like one but hell, we can't even get all of the ezine contributors and forum regulars to read and/or comment on each other's articles.

Well they say the hopeless causes are the ones worth fighting for...

There is a situation that I fight for without hope. Though I know that if I just ignore it all together, the probability of success in said situation greatly decreases.

Indeed. That's way of it. If you do nothing, you get nothing. If you do something... maybe.

Ooooh. Two oh so witty remarks from the peanut gallery. Remember children, if you're not part of the solution...
