    Surprised/Amazed

    Recently I have noticed that there are fewer and fewer members online and its taking longer and longer for new new replies to turn up to posts


    Are there any plans being made behind the scenes to attract more members or is it just a case of oh well?

    I'd hate to see the forum dissappear, is there anything we the members can do to help?

    You see the 'Archive' links @ the bottom of the page?
    Krohn explained those will bring more members because it had something todo with more google search results. But I dunno if that is already activated/working

    All those archive links seem to do for me is to do the 'lo-fi thing' that it does on ipb

    Like the board but without the layout

    As for the number of posts and members, it is actually the same from before we left IPB. It has consistantly been picking up since the swtchover, and we are getting more and mroe traffic from google. Remember that the board now counts visits from the past 15 minutes instead of an hour like IPB was doing.

    I am basically just waiting on Martin to get some more time to make some changes to both the forum and the main site. Everything is running smootly now, and that was our top priority.

    I've being coming here less since the switchover because I just dont like the appearence of the board, its gives me a headache.

    I was also unhappy that the I had a thread closed once with no explaination. I queried this with every admin and mod and was never told why. I figured that if my contribution to this board doesn't even warrant a little repect then my presence would not really be missed.

    However I do love lots of aspects of this board
    - the community
    - the people (even the d***h****s)
    - the way it can cheer me up when I've had a miserable day
    - the fact that i know i can log on at any time of the day or night and just fool around if I want too
    This fate is worse than death. Condemned to live out existence in a vessel incapable of sustaining my true glory. How am I to function with such limitation? - Illyria

    I understood the archive thing to just be in a formatt that suits search engine bots more so they can spider it easier (leading to higher listings in searches etc).

    I don't find I need to visit FST that much anymore. I used to to check up on how K++ was doing and look around for help. On the whole I find I can solve more P2P problems by myself and if I have trouble with specific software I just go to their forums for help. The verified sections here are good but there are plenty of other sites that offer a similar thing.
