    What do people want?

    What do people want from this forum?
    Car articles?
    photographs?
    Car news?
    Jokes?
    Games similar to word association?
    None of the above?

    What would make you participate?
    Perhaps you feel the forum is a waste of time and that Facebook is your primary source?

    A little participation from everyone would not hurt. I regularly post articles, links to articles, comment on the RSS news feeds and generally provide large amounts of content and I'm more than little dis-heartened at the lack of feedback and general response. Why can't people be bothered to post?

    Am I wasting my time? The fact that I virtually stopped posting this week and forum dies tells me I am.
    Convince me I'm wrong before I too decide I can't be bothered.

    Thanks for the post. It will be interested to see the replies. What do people want from the website....
    I try to promote it in the hand out on the club nights. Perhaps the forum is too difficult to use? if so, would be interesting to hear any feedback.

    Sometimes I get snowed under at work, but try to get on here to see what's new.

    Even posts that are no car related are appreciated, like other projects you are doing. Or posts funny stuff in the Renegades Cafe that you have come across on the internet. The website is a playground for all to enjoy.

    Is it worth linking this article on the Facebook page so people could possibly respond?

    Just a few points here.....

    1. Just because no one replies to a post, it dosen't mean it's not been read.
    2. Sometimes there isn't the need for a reply or can't add anything usefull.
    3. Lots of people use fakebook for convienience on the move, I havent even got a smart phone.
    4. I go on three or four different websites several times a day and all seem fairly quiet these days. Also, 'tis holiday season at this time.
    5. Don't forget we are a fairly small club with only a few regular visitors to the website.
    6. Some may only look in during the evenings due to work etc., some only if they want help or to buy/sell stuff.

    Some of this may sound a bit negative but it's just the way it is as I see it.
    Cheers Chris

    Yup, pretty negative. Effectively it means the content I'm adding isn't worth contributing too or is of no interest. I don't buy the silly season argument, it's been this way for a long time.
    but thanks for responding.

    Thanks Chris. I agree, we do see a lot of visitors reading, and going on their way.
    I see it the website as a good source of information that people look at and use.

    Thanks for this. You probably aren't aware that American Thunder and Myself are far from local so we only usually get to meet up with the Renegades a couple of times a year. In my opinion replying to any post is good - it doesn't matter if you feel it's worthwhile or not - it's extra reading after all
