Is it just me or is the OC very quiet? Have we lost members?

If you mean the forum, it seems about the same to me.

It was pretty slow during the Winter, and I am one of the culprits. But I sense a pickup over the past few weeks. At least it seems that way.

There has been some activity on the FaceBook page setup by Brad and I have seen some of us over there during the winter. Maybe the winter was so harsh (at least on the East Coast) no one was doing anything and thus less posts.... just a guess

I have tried to encourage the new members on the FaceB page to join up here and read the car profile post.
I feel that way it would encourage them to ask questions.
Hey how did you do that LOL

Assuming that we'd like to see more activity here, what would motivate someone to post here rather than somewhere else?

Most posts I see are from OC members wanting to support the site and/or fed up with one of the other 928 sites. Are there other reasons?

On second thought maybe it's good like this. I guess I just keep hoping it will get busier but not a pissing match like some other sites. :)

i think the web page design is very outdated, the navigation is also not the best.

You're right, Adam, it is quiet around here...but I'm guilty. Kinda stalled on the project for a bit, but now back at it as I'm now going to attack the sunroof and spray the roof/deck lid.

Just finished a 2 month home remodel. This weekend is SITM, so I will check-in from there and hope that kick-starts me into being a regular visitor again soon! I have posted on FaceBook some and tried to steer a few of those persons to the site. Maybe that will work eventually. Good job Mac!

Well I don't know, but I think it is pretty randy around here-

I REFUSE to give business to the site that begins with "R" while Randy V still works there.

N!

The activity has definitely dropped off, and pretty significantly at that. We are down about 50% in terms of regularly browsing users. I, for one, have just started to post again after about a 10 month intermission. I've definitely missed being apart of the regular conversation around here.

I'm trying to post more again also. I need to add to my profile. It's been awhile.

Check the Event Section about the PVGP. Added some pics there. :)

FYI - RV is no longer a moderator and hasn't been for several years now.

RL is the oldest and deepest site, and that's tough to beat. You simply can't easily replicate that established knowledge base. The rest struggle to gain traction - Reutterwerk is another example where the 928 Forum is extremely slow. For better or worse, RL is where it's at. Always has been, probably always will be.

I come on regularly, I don't always post. I will contribute more to do my part to keep the activity level up.

He is the MAIN reason, but I can still look at all the threads. And then of course, it isn't hard to use certain browsers that cover your IP address to kind of do what you want online. I never said that wasn't on that "place"~
