Is TWF growing???

Well, the first and more obvious answer would be hell ya. We have had a good number of newbies around. We really have got lucky with alot of them.

Here's some of the newest stats!!

Welcome to our newest member, infamous01

But I see a disturbing trend when you glance thru the Members List...

Nearly 6 full pages of people with 5 or less posts!!!

Do they not understand or miss the memo on how much

Maybe I'll have to re-forward the memo on the TPS report!

What can we do to get these people to post up some more? Any ideas guys?

I've noticed most bike forums are pretty dead in the winter and start to pick up in the spring. This board will only get busier.

Most boards are like that - a lot of registered users but not all post. That, and the season has a lot to do with traffic and participation. Once the weather gets warm across the country, you'll see it get busier.

Do tell....Post whoring.... whatever do you mean... every post has some type of substantial substance…it all lies within the beholder to understand the substance within each individual post.... which is why...

Off Topic = Post Whoring. It's that way on every board. If you want substance, go to the tech sections.

It's "molting"... hehe... a lot of new people posting which is cool, but on the other hand, a lot of old posters not really around anymore. Hopefully they find their way back someday.

The biggest thing that I've noticed is that a lot of the old members aren't around here anymore. Hopefully they'll come back around once riding season is in full force.

I have noticed on some other boards that after so much time has passed. A nonposting member will lose there active status and have to reregister to make a new post.
I don't know if it is good or bad but, that is the way it is.
It may be just to free up space on the server.

I don't think so...

And yes, alot of the old aren't around!

I'm sure once people start riding, breaking stuff, wanting to mod stuff, crash their bikes, ect.... that the posting and member count will go up up up!!

It's just something I have noticed!!

If I wasnt one of the only bastages in my area with a bike, I'd have recruited a couple to the forum. But since the world is filled with people who half-ass everything, I went from having about 7 or 8 other riders to around 2. And those 2 that I do have are so out of everything that is going on with the internet that they probably dont even know what this word "forum" means to most of us. OH WELL, im here. Whoring as much as possible

99 Vette
Too much for 250 character limit! [email protected]. Horrible tires.
