I have been closely monitoring the site over the last month or so and it’s not looking good I’m afraid. We are getting lots of hits with people reading existing posts and visiting the site but people aren’t willing to post anything unless they have something to sell. We have members that visit the site everyday but haven’t posted for years, we have new members that join just to post items for sale and to avoid coming back to the site put their number or email on the posts. Had one member so quick to joining couldn’t be bothered to scroll down to marketplace section to post there “for sale” post just dumped it at the top and haven’t come back since.
This site was never created for my indulgence it's was created for likeminded people to share information and advice and build relationships with others. If the site isn't being used I won't be spending any more of my time and money to keep it up. I have just broken even now so financial I won't have lost anything. From why perspective I have done everything I can to make this site as easy and user friendly as possible I have created how to videos, lifted restrict on uploading images direct into post and increased number of images you can post into the gallery. The site has been updated multiple times to increase its features. On a personal note I have enjoyed read everyone’s posts and discussions but we live in world now where people prefer a cheap “like” rather than a discussion or knowledge share. Please don’t take the above comments as a threat or me being angry; I’m not, I’m just being open and honest with everyone where we stand. If something isn’t being used then there’s no point keeping it, might be time to move on.
It’s up to the members on here to decide if they want this site or not.
