Please read, an idea

You have almost certainly noticed that I have been posting like a blithering idiot lately. No, I am not off my meds. This is my attempt to revive a forum I love. So I am posting everything I can, welcoming every new poster I notice, and the like.

Please join me in doing so! If we can kick up the posts and activity, artificially for sure, but kicked up none the less, I think we will snag a higher percentage of our visitors. And our long losts buddies might see the activity and wander back in.

So please join me in posting a lot. Think of it as a non-monetary forum stimulus. Or not. 8)

I've only recently begun posting again

I understand Stereophile's thinking on revammping the site and all that, but the simple fact is the new Forum is a lot less enjoyable and user friendly. Whether or not that explains the drop in use, I don't know, but it's pretty clear that the "Forum" aspect of the site is not a substantial concern by the decision makers.

I've always moved in and out of the hobby part of audio and wouldn't be surprised if many others do the same and so perhaps some of the old guys will drift back in over time.

I agree with you

but I miss the give and take. Let's get some back!

Improve navigation

and it's a doable deal, I suppose.

yes indeed, but

hopefully nobody will think we are monopolizing the site. I don't feel so good about seeing my name as the latest poster in so many categories.

I hear ya

but I like the alternative, a fairly dead site, far less. If you and I post a lot but are affable and humble about it, I think we can get away with it for awhile. It looks to me like posts are going up a bit, so our artificial postarrhea will not last forever.
