    Yeah I never claimed that all members who visit make posts. Some are very active, others only pop in every once in a while. But hopefully things will pick up again.

    We do have a few Santa smilies!

    I noticed lots of the old timers are not posting here as much as before, makes me sad they are not but the PM's are a great thing Dave. I may just pm a few of old time friends here just to say Hi to them and maybe they will come back.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    There are no requirements to any message board/forum to participate or post regularly. There are more active members than you might think.
    Actually, I do think there is a 'requirement' to people posting regularly. If people didn't then how would a forum continue? Answer being, it wouldn't.
    If people do not post regularly then the essence of an online forum dissapears, and in the end you are left with a dead space that may as well not be there. I can 'count on my hand' the amount of forums that have survived as long as Tailfeathers, and none of them survive as long as they have with only casual posters or people who sign up and don't bother to say anything.
    It's painfully obvious, at the moment, that people aren't any more 'active than we might think'.

    Yep, forums need members who are on daily and being active to keep the forum active. casual members dont keep the forum alive.

    On this forum (watch the stats if you dont believe me) we may have 50 or 60 'members' on at a time... read the names of them, half you may have never (nor will you ever) hear from. They are members bby technicality...

    I have noted a rapid decrease in the number of active members since I stopped visiting a few months back. Lord knows what happened, maybe they all got tied up with study like I did... maybe life got too busy for them all.

    But what can you do right? If noone posts then the forum dies. If the forum dies, then it dies.

    Before you ask, yes I am a b!tch...
    But I am an honest b!tch.

    When I get internet at home again in mid December, I will be back to daily checking.

    On a side note, I don't post if I have nothing productive or relevant to add. So I may not post a whole lot, but none of my posts are 2 word responses, or the ever popular "lol".

    I'm with you Sara. I haven't been on in a while, about a year, and I still don't get on like I used to. I've just been very busy. I read through a lot of posts when I do get on, but don't always comment. For one thing, I only have 1 tiel, so don't have the experience that some of you have, so I don't give advice where I don't know the answer. I just wait for the answers and learn from them.


    Matty, waaayyyy too much for me to comprehend!!! LOL!!!
