Thats about a 1/3.

Is there anything that we can do to encourage them to post and make the forum even more lively?


Dean were you going to weed out the non-actives at some time?
Of the 660+ forum 'members', 302 have made none) no posts ever.

Over 520 have made 5 or less posts .

Over 640 have made less than 85 posts

Only 17 have made between 100 and 1000 posts

With only 4 making over 1000 posts.

This is in the eight years of the forums existence.

We ALL need to put our heads together, with thinking caps on, to see how we can encourage people to actually post on the forum and more importantly to do so regularly.

Without posts our forum will wither and die.

So folks, lets all encourage each other to post, whether it be in the fun 'Side Scream' section or in the technical aspect sections.

OK,so it is winter in the Northern climes.

Hopefully this mean that you chaps will have more time available to post and exchange experiences and ideas on the forum, while huddled over the fire.
This excludes those have hardtops and heaters and also those die hards that go moking regardless. Mind you I am looking forward to reading posts on their experiences.

Naturally the chaps in the Southern climes will be out moking more. :wink:

I thnk I should give posting a rest for a while.

I have tried to keep it lively in responding where I can to as many posts as I can.

Hopefully people are not intimidated by my name after each post and are reluctant to post as a result.

So I will give posting a little rest and allow others to post.. :)

Hi Doug,

you´re right. There are many members with no or few posts. But stopping or reducing your own activity would not be a good way to change this situation. I don´t know the real reasons why the activity is so low.
So what can we change to make the forum more attractive? Why not starting to collect some proposals in this thread? Let me start:

1. Most forums I know offer a sales/wanted area directly in the forum. I really miss this here because it is much more interactive as the "Classifieds" where you can get to from the clubs site.

2. ....

Hope to see some more proposals soon.

Hi Doug, I agree with Daniel, keep the posts coming, they encourage me to get on and add some words.
Although it is pretty misserable weather wise at the moment, I do try and get out in the Moke if its dry and sunny. People seem to think that the weather is terrible at the moment, which it is for the most part it is! but this week alone Monday, Friday and today have had quite long sunny periods (but pretty cool) which have been good enough to venture out. Mind you I am retired and you can do these sorts of things when you dont have to go to work!
Cheers

I did actually trial a classifieds mod on the forum a while ago. I can't remember why I didn't go ahead with it but I'll take another look.

+2 on both a for sale and wanted section in the forum.
Human nature, what it is, tends to go to the "social area" to get an idea of what Mokes and Mokers are all about. By the time they might decide if they might want to purchase one, they may forget that there was a classified section on the main club site.
Is it even there anymore? Can't remember the last time I was on that page.

Hi,
I dont have any problem with the 'classifieds' section on the Moke Clud Site but I do with the 'Regalia' section.
Do I take it that
'We are currently working on a brand new line of club regalia for 2012.Watch this space for news!'
Should now read
'We are currently working on a brand new line of club regalia for 2013.Watch this space for news!'

Problem fixed! :D
Actually, there are some new regalia items (new for 2012) floating around and as soon as I get details, they will be in the club shop.

Oh well, as regalia manager, I guess I should really stick my head above the parapet. There is some regalia available - 'some' meaning a quantity of the same thing in varying sizes. These being Dark Green polo shirts with the current Moke logo - Car silhouette, not Moke 50. Towards the end of next week I will have some pictures ready and size/quality list for the site. The price will be £12 each. I will confirm postage at the same time as the pictures come..

In the mean time, if anyone would like to order some, you can always post or PM me. I am currently travelling abroad (Djibouti of all places) and tend to do that quite a lot, so apologies for any delays.

Rather than hijack this post, there will be a separate topic in which I will provide more details of regalia plans.
Get a life, Get a Moke...
