What Do We Do???????????

Postby Dan4th » Sat Mar 24, 2012 1:40 am

Forumeers::::::::::::

I see cobwebs in the corners, I hear
crickets chirping in the cellar and
there is a definite echo in the hallway..........

What can we do to get this "Forum"
moving again?

Things have been very tired lately
and getting tireder :(

I have some ideas about WHY this is
so, but I'm wondering what might be
done about it........

Anyone?????????

This USED to be a very busy place!

I think the same point crops up every year at this time - we may not seem very busy but compared to some of the other aviation fora I partake in comparing membership size, I would say we are as busy of any of the others.

Is much the same all over .Even the motor sport areas are quiet for now Yea I know the F1 has kicked off but not everyone lives and breathes that procession, more are interested in the real car races and endurance ones than F1 these days.Have not spotted SM at any of the sports car meets last year did he ever finish that 1st season or did they give up.March is always a quit month ,just wait and this lot will be making a load of fuss about everything.All at once =))

Mayfly is right. I recently rejoined the VTTS Club and their forum at times is quieter than here. There seems to have been a huge drop off in posting since I was last there around a year ago.

I looked in there 3-4 times the other day and there were only 2 postings all day ...and then there were only about another 6 during the evening.

It's been nice here the last couple of days I've spent most of my time outside. :D

Well, I suppose.............

Thing is, I will see lots of people logged
onto the site just waiting for something
to look at but not providing anything
themselves......

I know not everyone is especially chatty,
and some only comment on what others
post-up, but it is like what I've said ad
nauseum, you get out of Iconic A/C
what you put into it :D

It's sort of: The more posts there are, the
more posts there are :p

One thing always leads to another, if you
get my point, and activity breeds activity!

Iconic is as fun and busy as WE make it!

I have to agree with D4th; and to agree with a Yank is above and beyond the call of duty. We know there are going to be slow times, but ever since I was conned by a small fat dodgy geezer with a Land Rover into joining this forum at its birth, it happens every year. However, as a Mod, I've noticed that even the spammers are quiet, so don't give up; bear in mind that IA is one of the best forums in cyberspace. Onwards and upwards, Rodney
