    I've noticed that this forum doesn't get much traffic. I've been the newest guy for a while now. And I never see anybody on at the same time as me. What to do, what to do.

    The forum is still very new, it's really just starting to get listed in the major search engines.

    If you would like to help bring new members, advertise for us

    Here is the code I use in my IAP signature to advertise.

    Code:
    This is for the rotating banner ad.

    Just a thought.

    Don't give up on it yet, it use to have just one member.

    I never thought about giving up. I really want to see this forum take off.

    It will, if we keep using it the number of articles will grow and the people who do come and visit will have more reason to sign up. Right now it's kind of low insentive, so I'm glad to hear your willing to stick it out. It's going to have its slow days but once in a while we'll get that new dedicated member that'll give it a push in the right direction.

    The forum will be 2 months old on the 12th, so it's doing pretty good.

    I don't know about you, but I spent all day today doing laundry. I think it's going to take about 2 weeks to completely purge all the junk out of my closet so that I have room in there again. I can't believe how slow I am, every day the day is over and I feel like I haven't accomplished anything... and then I remember to go check the discussion boards. Like now!

    This forum appears to almost flow in a sine wave. It can be dead as a door nail one moment and busy as can be the next. I've come to the conclusion it's not going to die off, so I'm less worried. I post stuff when I have a thought I'd like to explore with the group. I think most of our members do the same.

    Actually we are doing pretty good lately, we've made it to all the major search engines and several other sites. Things are looking up.

    If you wish to advertise for us, Great!!

    Small isn't always bad. I know some small girls that are great, but then again, some that aren't. Which do you think you are 2112? Good small or bad small?

    Hmm, I guess everyone is as busy as I've been lately. Forum has been kind of dead the last few days.

    Not to worry, it'll be here when you come back
