Quietness.

Postby xjr41 » Tue Jul 16, 2019 12:24 pm

Forum seems very quiet these days. I know I haven't been on here for a long time but it used to be 100 posts a day.
What's happened to all the old regulars?
Derek, Ivor, Norman, magic dormouse, even Naki seems quieter!! :lol:

It’s definitely quieter these days, than at the peak of popularity. There’s a good reason for that. If you have a look at the “FB vs forum” discussion. My opinions are there on why a lot of members have faded away/ jumped ship/ lost interest, or not even bothered to post after signing up? There will of course be a number of other reasons for members to not post/ personal reasons etc. But the distinct lack of new members contributing is the bigger long term issue IMO.

Maybe we do get lots of traffic but there are definitely a lot less posts. Not sure what the answer is although problems with the forum and especially the grief uploading pictures has not helped. I have given up posting if I need a picture to illustrate the post.
I registered on Facebook as well to try out other XJ40 sites but it was not much different there. Noticed the F word on one site so I will not be going back there.

The Volvo forum I use is always mega busy though, can’t keep up with the posts sometimes :lol:
