I frequently read that the forum is practically dead but already today there are seven threads on the move and it’s not even 8am. I noticed similar rates of posting most days.
Maybe expectations are too high as Im on several forum and some would be happy to see seven threads moving over the whole day.
Are we comparing a forum to a chat room?

A few members have suggested I should return and write something on my own threads and I do from time to time. Today was one of those times.

It’s good when the forum has a few new threads. A couple of good ones at the moment.

We are indeed alive. This morning sees threads on libraries, the game of monopoly, comedians, birthplace villages and towns, newspapers, back pain, this site ownership, public transport, song titles, holidays, physios, wheelchair accessibility, geothermal energy, cookie problem and of course the political ones.

This was just a very quick glance at threads posted or added to since the weekend.

I would prefer a steady flow of threads on diverse subjects and preferably subjects more difficult to hijack. Good to see it has been good lately.
