First of all, don't scream. That doesn't endear you to anyone.

Secondly, you need to phrase your question like a question. Don't make a statement and put a question mark at the end, OK ?

As previously stated. Sometimes caps lock is left on without noticing especially if I'm typing in between doing mounds of paper work. Anyway, it's so stupid on site such as these ones when people are constantly nagging and critsizing constantly.
Gets so tiresome and really scares new members.

The majority of the membership made several attempts to improve this site and have left after ongoing disagreements with myself (without resolution). The best I can offer to grow this site at this time is to continue posting, sharing with your friends (and Facebook feed), and hopefully more will follow.

The majority of the membership leave after getting married and not having time to post. Furthermore a core of posters that did have much time to post made several attempts to improve this site to suit their purposes and have left after ongoing disagreements with myself (without resolution). Younger members simply will not join messageboards as the medium of choice these days is facebook. The best I can offer to grow this site at this time is to continue posting, sharing with your friends (and Facebook feed), and hopefully more will follow. But more likely, this like all messageboards will become as irrelevant as the BBS's of the 1980's, or the online services of the 1990's...


FTFY.

It seems to be a universal trend. Chat rooms aren't as popular as they used to be. Forums aren't as popular etc. What activity that does exist has been usurped by facebook.

I must say though that I find all the new members to be very friendly and enjoy the posts. Furthermore posting activity has been picking up.

It's a small consolation compared to a formerly thriving board, but having a yes man to help pretend things are wonderful takes away some of the sting.

I remember you. IIRC, you announced your engagement on the board. If you're that person, I knew your husband.
