Will ye no come back again?

Postby alan refail » Wed Nov 16, 2011 7:15 am

It's so quiet on the Forum these days - a mere six posts yesterday, and two of those were mine!

So many regular posters seem to have gone quiet or disappeared.

Any ideas how to get back to the lively informative Forum it used to be?

Hi Alan,

I agree. It's very, very quiet on here. Lots of people looking, but not posting :(

Alan

I think it is probably just natural wastage. I have looked at several forums over the last couple of years with a view to possibly joining but too often if you check latest posting dates they are 3 or 4 years ago so not worth joining.

I also think that it doesn't help if people trying to give advice to questions from their own (maybe limited) experience are chastised by people with a different point of view and loud voices. Viewers may decide this is not what they want.

Well, I'm still here Alan. Just haven't had much to talk about lately. Trouble is if I need to know something I can nearly always find an answer by searching old posts. I have ordered a couple of fruit bushes today which is quite exciting :roll:

I thought things were a bit quiet too, but haven't had much of a gardening year with concentrating on decorating and home improvements. My son has also been home for two months this summer and had his computer attached to my computer cable so I've been more or less computerless.

Getting back into the swing of things again now though and having a leaf raking session this morning - might even cut the lawns if they are dry enough.

Think everyone's so busy these days. Even I don't get chance to look over the posts as much, and certainly don't get time to scan the BBC news headlines like I could do during a lunch break.

Plus its a slow period for growing in general, even with this weird warm weather! (had to cut grass -again-!)

That said if anyone has any suggestions (like seed swaps, competitions) they fancy - then do let me know!

Oooh, you've got me interested now - I am poised to take the plunge into selling at craft fairs myself. What do you make/sell?

Sorry Alan. Too busy with school governance and recovering from my chemotherapy [which has for reasons too boring to mention caused me to have very little energy for about a month or so]. It did not work as well as was hoped and I am now on a new wonder drug whose effects have not yet been assessed, but we are optimistic.

Evening Mike, when i was thinking of people i hadn't seen on here for a while, your name was one of the first that came to mind.

I hope the new wonder drug, lives up to it's name for you.
