how do we fix this? PLEASE READ
first off, i know this could be in the off topic forum but there are many that dont go there and i want to get this to as many as i can.. so bear with me here please!
we just had a moderator election come up and couldnt get enough volunteers for a vote so just signed up the ones we needed.. during the last couple years the forum seems to have slowed down a lot from the way it was when we were first started.. lately there are maybe 10 new posts each day when i get on to check,, and there seems to be a lack of interest in posting..
so here is my question, what is it that you dont like about this forum as it is today or in the past and how do you think we as in the forum staff and membership can fix it? feel free to voice your real thoughts not the politically correct ones with in reason of course.. i have been here a long time and served as moderator a couple times and know that they are fair in there thoughts, each group of staff have new ideas and they have jelled together for the good of the forum.. so for example if you think that the forum has cliches that get special treatment say so here, and give us reasons why and how to change it.. but from my time here that isnt the case, do some of us chat back and forth,yes, just as you do with your friends.. but we dont set back and let someone struggle with a wood working question or need.. so please take the time to make this forum alive again and give us a chance to get this back up to speed, and please let your friends know of this thread in case they dont see it. the more we get involved here the better it will be.. and one last statement i want to make....this forum is special in the fact that many of you are considered family and are treated as such by many of us here.. that doesnt happen nearly as much if at all in the other larger forum groups.. think about that when you decide to write your ideas or not here.. thanks for listening
