I honestly feel that the lay-out of the index or menu is the biggest reason that this forum has less traffic.
Maybe the Home page could be set to automatically start Scrolling thru the Forum Index with-in 2 seconds of opening?
I think most new comers see the "Most Popular Discussions" & "Recent Discussions", and never learn to open the Forum Index.
The 'Most Popular Discussions' is totally mis-leading. Just check the last posting dates!
Maybe replace IT with the automatic scrolling Index?
I've seen literally hundreds of new members which post a Hello in introductions & a few of us try to give a warm Welcome, but they seem to just fade-away. All too quickly.
klr 6 5 0.net is a whole lot quieter/slower than it used to be, also.
I never liked the KLR section of ADV rider, one Long Jumble of every topic.
Facebook has taken a lot of traffic from this and other forums. And I hate it! I can never find a 'thread' that is more than 3-4 days old, with-out any new postings which bring them back-up in rotation, I guess.
I do not hesitate to supply links to threads or individual postings in this forum while on Facebook.
I've had my posting privileges suspended for linking to this forum while on the "dark.net", as I sometimes call it. But I'm still allowed to read over there.
