We get the traffic, why do so few people post here?


OK, So what's it gonna take to get people posting here again? I've re-arranged the forums, made the rules more "user friendly" (pretty much deleted all of the restrictions). Got the folks at Runboard to make the board more smartphone friendly.
Other than the Photobucket fiasco (which effects every forum out there and I can't do anything about). Hell I even set up a section for vendors and removed the restrictions about selling (with the only stipulation being that your deals are your deals and I/we won't intervene). I can't see why people don't post. I mean we get the traffic (I check the board stats, see below)

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

And don't tell me "forums are dead" because that's pure B.S. I follow a Jeep Wrangler forum (I have a Jeep Wrangler) and the first 5 pages pretty much roll over every day. The only way to follow a thread you are interested in is to save the URL somewhere so you can drop it in your search engine. And RPF gets plenty of action.

To be clear, I'm not really looking for anyone to tell me why (unless it's something I can really do) but more asking the folks to consider sharing stuff here again and to point out that with over 15000 page views in the last 90 days, why do we only get 112 posts? To be honest I find that pathetic.

FYI, I'm very willing to offer moderator or administrator privileges to anyone who's willing to step up and try to help get this place back up to snuff. The current staff is doing nothing and it's high time to bring in some folks that will.

Email me if you are up to the challenge. All ask is that you consider it carefully. I want this to work and the "Staff" needs to want that too.

I'm still here.
Facebook annoys me, and I get inundated by a bunch of other useless crap, so I can't even focus on Bat stuff.
It feels like slipping into an old recliner when I visit this cave.
Now where's my bat slippers?

Tim,

  Great to see you stopping back in. I hope you'll stay a while.

Brin,

    Your slippers are in my basement but you gotta come here to get 'em.

I'm always checking in. I will continue to post here. We are good people here, but the recent movies are terrible.

The Batman vs Supes movie sucked, well the first 15 minutes I saw before I gave up on the slow pace.

'Did not watch any suicide squad or whatever it is called.

Batman needs to look and feel very cool to us, otherwise I will just hang on to the '89 and give up on the motocross suits.

The more the merrier I feel. We've been trying to make things better but if people don't ever check in they'll never know. emoticon

Re: We get the traffic, why do so few people post here?


The truth that I have found is that many people we thought we here for more, were really only were wanting a suit. We kept them talking and a few friendships stuck, but on the whole people came, people found, and people left. Instant gratification was what it was always about even back then for many. Those many found people who created a product for them in facebook and such that is all about instant gratification. Unfortunately instant gratification is hollow and look what is happening to a whole world who now practice that and only that.

I have been lurking for years! lol

I need to start getting back in the swing of things here. This place was my first taste of true costuming wonder.

I have seen many people come and go in the last 11 [sign in to see URL] I still stop by and see whats going on from time to time.

Long live the BOTB! emoticon
