Jeff H once whispered in the wind:
... While the 'View posts since last visit' feature helps a lot, it is still ungainly to have to open a topic, then a thread when there is such a small volume of posting
I agree on that Jeff, but hopefully the traffic will increase a lot and the software is made for HEAVY TRAFFIC
Cruisers Forum has the following structure on the Bulletin Board
in addition to the Photo Galley
which is divided into categories too.
Imagine having a 1000 new posts in the category you fancy the last week. You really don't wanna mix it up with posts from all the other categories or forums, do you. You may want to subscribe to just one or two forums in that favourite category of yours and forget about the rest of the bulletin board.
You can tell the board to e-mail you when there are new post in your favourite forums.
Check out THIS SITE
using the same software with more than 35.000 members and more than 24.000 threads
... or this forum (same software) that had the following statistics when I visited it today:
45.793 registered members
662 online active users
1.339 online users)
CANNABIS EDGE - Community & Discussions
Maybe they're all high ???
I'm NOT a member
As you can see from the PUBLIC SITE STATISTICS
link, the traffic is increasing. If we all invite one more friend to join, take part in the discussions, upload and comment on photos - Cruisers Forum will soon be a much more interesting site to visit.
I'll keep on working to make Cruisers Forum a favourite site for cruising sailors, but I don't have the funds to pay others for publicity. There has been suggested before on the board to make a voluntary donation system to help cover the operation costs. I don't know what you think of that? I think I'll make that a poll
one day. That may give us funds for advertising in relevant magazines ...
