An absolutely useless thread

Some time ago, it was in its full strength. It was funny, lively, a sheer joy to look at. But then all of a sudden, something happened. The life just got drained out of it. Since it has always been popular, people come to visit it. They come massively, but remain silent. There are only a few of them who occasionally say a sentence or two, but those are lonely voices which can’t help. Its condition is getting worse. Are its days outnumbered, is it time to pull the plug? Is anybody going to miss this forum at all?

Since there is nothing else to do around here, maybe we could have fun with counting the number of people who visit this place ( you can see that number in the right bottom of the CCL start page ) and post it here whenever we log in. We could do that for a few days to see how many people come here just to find out that there is nothing to read.

I’ll start.

Re: An absolutely useless thread

the question is - will you have anything to moderate?

Re: An absolutely useless thread

well do I have much to moderate for now? apart from a couple of things here and there not much really


But i remember that I joined in 2004, when Kim was injured. And this place was the most active I've ever seen it, when Kim was off the tour so there is hope.

Re: An absolutely useless thread

well the thing is we want members to read here and post, rather than lurkers

Re: An absolutely useless thread

That's the thing Yasmine. From these numbers we can see that there is a relatively small number of members and a huge number of lurkers - guests who visit this place. Since Kim is not playing at the moment I can only assume that these people like this forum and come regularly to see if there is something interesting to read.

I started lurking regularly around here in 2004 and I didn't feel the need to start posting at all. Only in 2006 when it got very quiet I started doing it, because I realized that if I liked this place I might as well contribute to it.

Since then we lost even more 'old' regulars for different reasons and the majority of newbies who said 'hi' in the welcoming thread didn't post another word ever again. So maybe we could ask our lurkers to join us, to register and start posting because in that way it would be more interesting for all of us.

Re: An absolutely useless thread

I agree with your analysis, but everyone is welcome to join and come and post with us so I'm not sure saying it over and over would actually make this place more active.
