Who is still lurking

Postby Paul » Sun May 10, 2015 7:18 am

Hi in another thread it was noticed nobody posts here much anymore.

What are people missing out on? What do we need to do? or are bb forums just dead?

if you don't want to ask or answer questions just pop your head in to say Hi.

Still here :)

I think it's a critical mass thing - not enough people posting to keep the conversations going. Still quite handy for finding out when events are on, though.

Hi :)

Is it about fragmentation and useability?

Fragmentation:
- LARP conversations are happening on the NZ LARP site
- game design conversations are happening on Google Plus (or in places I have no idea about)

Useability / Convenience:
- People check places where people they know are regularly hanging out (Twitter, FB and G+, for me)

Probably, also, there is some curating of friends and circles so that you don't bump into trolls and you do have constructive conversations with people you already know and trust.

I guess sites need a purpose, a good culture, and people that drive traffic towards the site.

I still check in here too. No Google+ or Facebook, so I guess I'll be hanging on for a good long while!

Interest spikes pre/post Kapcon.

The games I was enthusiastic posting about did not get positive responses here, so I went elsewhere.
