A big problem

Postby SpookyKid » Sun Aug 05, 2007 2:02 am

Not enough active users I come here everyday and no new posts not even the admin I think I am going to go around the internet and tell people about this site.

Thanks SpookyKid

Thanks SpookyKid,
Yeah, that would be great. I could really use some new users and contributors around here. I have changed the new user signup process so I have to approve all new users to the forum. I should be able to eliminate most spammers that way but some may make it through. I'll be making you a moderator so you can remove any spam posts from users that I might not catch.

Thanks again,
Mike

I found it last night, I was looking around for a forum and meet people just like me, so I did and I found it not much people are here. Thank goodness I did.

Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately, this forum is not very active. I have tried the best I can to attract new users but haven't had much luck.

no luck attracting users? no that's not the problem, it's keeping the ones you have! i took an informal look at the average number of posts of users, and was surprised to find that rarely does any user have more than two or three posts. also rarely does anyone return after having visited for the first time. most forums on any subject have users who visit daily and have thousands of posts! okay, let's take a look at why, shall we?

1. begging for money. the very first and formost thing that a user is confronted with is the donate button at the top of every page! if people are happy with the services offered here, believe me, they will litterally be standing in line to donate. i suggest you move any referance to donations to the site to an obscure location near the bottom that users must look for and click on to find.

2. housekeeping! i can't even get into the off-topic area! how is anyone supposed to get to know anyone here? buttons for view active topics, view recent posts don't work at all. nobody seems willing to move posts that don't belong in a thread into a more appropriate thread or subforum. lots of dead posts too.

3. poor utilization of commercial interests. the forum should have a special vendors area that trusted providers of services and products, (like mobility and communication devices for example) can use. make them pay a reasonable fee for the priviledge. ban ALL other use of the forum for commercial purposes. ALL! you will have vendors standing in line to get the available spots, end of problem 1 above. likely they will have people who monitor the forum on a daily basis, because it is in their vested interest to do so. vendors will be able to provide customer support and links as well as answer querries into their products or services, as well as provide space for customer reviews and complaints. as it is now, vendors have to practicly burglarize their way into the forum in order to have contact with those who actually need it, at the expense of those who don't. it makes the user feel violated. if you are having difficulty managing the administration and moderation of this site, it may be in the vested interest of a few vendors to provide help in this area. end of problem 2 above. don't hesitate to confront vendors with an ultimatum that forces them to make the site better or get off of it and stay off forever. providing healthcare and equipment for the disabled is a multi-hundred billion US dollar industry. there can be only 2 reasons that commerciall interests have not helped this forum: either you are not letting them or you are not asking them to.

4. other than their avatar, has anyone ever posted a photo in this forum? the only photos i can find are the ones on the home page provided by a sponsor. how exciting is that?

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
