We are receiving at least 20 new members a day. To me, that’s growth. It’s taken people time to adjust to the new forum, and like the old forum, many just watch without posting. The forum is to answer questions about the sport. We’ve eliminated all the drama BS that occurred on the old site. Our mission is to provide a place for karters to ask and discuss the sport.
Rod, for someone who seems to think the site is a ‘ghost town’, you are posting one classified a month. Classifieds continue to be our busiest section of the forums. – AND YOU SOLD YOUR LAST ITEM. I’d say that’s a success, wouldn’t you?
Regarding the ‘New Post since Last Visit’ – we have been unable to adjust the standard system in place for the forum. It is a something that we have not been able to find an adjustment for. However, there are other options
You can find those at the top of the screen where it says EKN Forums with the little logo next to it.
No. Just any growth isn’t much success to me. I guess it just depends on the goals you establish. It just seems like before I would go to the general discussion area and the front page there would be several new topics and chatter. Now on the front page there are topics that haven’t been replied to in almost 3 weeks. I use to come and be able to spend a lot of time learning and watching people discuss topics, now I can come and look at classifieds, look at general discussion and a few other things and be done in 10 min with all the new posts I want to read.
The lay out it great, graphics are great, everything seems to work very well, but I think something happens with the quarky way the login works that people just give up trying to join or log in.
Is the site a “success”? Those are relative terms, but I think it could easily be 3 times more busy.
