I've tried to recommend it to two people. They took one look and never spoke to me again.

We have a very big problem here. New members CANNOT post. I forgot what the reason is but Simon knows and explained it. So, in effect, we can't grow since only long-time members can post here. We're like stagnant water. Hopefully, this can change.

Is this the real asylum or a mirror? That makes me think the gov. have taken over this site, or maybe Russian hackers, and either entity are waiting for someone to return. Jesus Christ brother, is my bank account safe, what little I have in it?

New members require an authorization to begin posting. Prior to about mid-summer a year ago, any admin could grant that. As some may recall, the board was down then for several days, and when it came back up I was no longer receiving e-mail notices of new members, nor could I authorize their posting. I still don't get the e-mails, and still cannot authorize posting privileges. There are only three admin authorized members on the board any longer, although there are a few others who haven't posted in years. Dingle is the owner of the hosting server, and theoretically is the sys admin - the software is old and a huge kludge of mods in the last ten years, and he is the only one who knows what features work and which don;t. Since he shows up maybe twice a year to post, and has not responded to my queries about the issue, I quit worrying about it at all. As far as I know, only he can restore features.

Let's be real, kids.
New members or not, this place is not coming back from the dead any more thoroughly than its current zombie-like state. Y'all have finished up all the brains and moved on to eating entrails at this point. Fresh brains won't matter because you've clearly decided entrails taste better.

Maybe, though it's always a treat to nibble fresh conarium from time to time.

I maintain that this place could definitely grow if new members could post. I see that we have new members all the time here.

Oh, thanks a lot Karen. But I'm afraid TT already filled the 'defeatist bitch' gap. In more than one way - just ask his wife, eh!

What we need is some class and some fun. Do you have any of that?

I lack entrails and they say you are what you eat. Seriously, this post is so true. This place jumped the shark a long time ago. At this point it's like a car wreck and the only people left are rubber-neckers.

My guess is 75% of those "new" posters are spammers, 15% are probably old members who have forgotten their passwords, and 10% are people registering to let us know that an old member has died.

Sorry, Coin. I still heart you and stuff. Even if you did bitch-pernt me.

Wow. This place is more dead than I thought.

I wanted to make it clear (for those who don't realize that I am only a lowly mod) that I have no power to approve new people, otherwise I would do that for you. I have nothing against new people being here, I just don't think it will make much difference in the activity. Forums as a medium have been mostly dead for quite a while and this particular one has no niche that draws people (like a band fandom or whatever).

I hope forums make a comeback of sorts when people inevitably get sick of the Social Media behemoths. I even wonder if there won't be some kind of neo-Luddite movement as younger generations rebel against big brother.

Not gonna happen. The average human being has the attention span of a fruit fly, which is why sound bites dominate public discourse, why Twitter is so popular, etc.

we get regular sign ups at my other forum

it's also not niche or activity related, although it used to be. most people don't know each other through raves anymore though and it's kind of a cookery and drugs forum now

My life is so complicated. Now I won't answer any questions. This post will die but a year from now they will remind me that I posted this.

So, you are back up over 300 pounds, aren't you? Bet you haven't ridden a pedal powered bikes in years.

I've been too busy but I'm not at 300 pounds no more hahaha! I have been pedaling though.
I left my house to my kids. Son has another grand son on the way.
And I moved my host home to an apartment.
So because of apartment rules I'm going with electric. But I've been poor for the past 2 years since my guy passed on and this was the only way I can get a second guy.
So when money becomes available again I'm converting my 3 speed newspaper bike to an electric front hub and I'll make a battery pack out of laptop batteries. You Tube rules.
My bike thread will be revived once again!
