Okay,

So today board statistics say: "19 guests, 11 members, 1 anonymous members "

Yesterday (and every time I peak in) was about the same, but there are pretty much no new posts beyond the occasional one every month or so.

So I don't get it... I mean if there are more or less about 20 people on the board on a given day, and even half are guests, how come so few posts?

I realize that this is an older device and there are often about 50% guests browsing, but I have seen more activity on really vintage sites (like Tandy, Amiga, etc).

Anyone got an idea what's up?

Also, if you're here and reading this, post a reply just as a shout-out... at least passerbys will feel posting is worthwhile (since there is an audience).

Just my 2 cents.

And yeah, I been away a long time as well, not blaming people for that, just lost as to why there seem to be users but no posts or conversations.

I visit the forum almost every day to have a quick look for what's new.

Instead of being annoyed at the lack of action, why don't you do something about it yourself ? You're complaining that people visit but don't post and you're guilty of it!

No, I wasn't complaining, I was just confused how there could be 20 people online nearly every time I logon, but no new messages. Even right now there are over 20 people online (though 90% are guests at this late hour in the USA).

And actually posting the title the way I did was somewhat of an at attempt to remedy that a little bit (ie: doing something about it)....hey at least there is a post this month ;-)

Seriously, sorry if I sounded like I was complaining, I simply wanted to stir the pot a little bit and see if anyone was around.

Thanks everyone for the posts... and hey, if your a old time user or a passerby lurking, take a second to register (or recover your password) and say hello...

It's always good to chat with past, present, future users of the sharps, archos, and other short-date vintage stuff. And I use the term vintage very loosely, as I believe the Zauruses(Zaurii) and Archoses (Archosi?) are busily at work behind the scenes doing all the 3D special effects for the Transformer 5 movie...I mean that is just how far ahead of their time they are...

I think it was it Neo that said "The Zaurii dish 'em out and the Archosi play them back, dude."

You know, in that scene right before they started fighting in the telephone booth as it flew through time... 'Cause Morpheus hated to be called "Dude".
