Quote from: sliderule on October 06, 2018, 06:37:40 amIn my view, the $35 per year cost is roughly the same as a magazine subscription, but I find the site much more rewarding. I'd like to add my to Dragon Lady as well.
QuoteI'm just wondering if there are any viable options for increasing traffic at this point?
Quotethe best way to increase participation is to increase YOUR participation
QuoteI'm paying for the privilege of posting information that many others simply read. That doesn't seem equitable.
QuoteIt may be worthwhile to do a trial for a few months to see how many lurkers would be willing to pay
QuoteAt least two other forums are structured such that anyone can read and post, and financial contribution is optional, but defined.
QuoteIdeally, we'll end up with a hybrid forum where some areas remain open to everyone, but others are only available to subscribers.
QuoteIs the cost of administration significantly higher for the 100?
Quote from: DragonLady on October 06, 2018, 07:04:18 pmQuoteIt may be worthwhile to do a trial for a few months to see how many lurkers would be willing to payWe tried that version for three years.
QuoteWhen did we have a defined contribution? I remember it as being up to the member. Am I misremembering?
QuoteI do think I might be more active if it was simpler to post photos. Or maybe it is, and I haven't been paying attention?

To be 100% honest (and if I sound testy, I'm not; I've just been awake all night caring for an abandoned kitten), the best way to increase participation is to increase YOUR participation.Start a topic. If you don't know what to talk about, go find a news article or find an old topic on SG classic and make a thread about it here.
Quote from: bessiecrocker on October 13, 2018, 03:01:53 amI need to admit to a really "duh" moment (long moment) on my part...and perhaps this explains some of the reduction in posting recently. I knew the site was "under re-construction" so I expected changes and temporary loss of whole sections. What I did not figure out was that when the sections got re-configured I would NOT automatically see them. Because I haven't been seeing much to post on (only the public sections) I have not logged in for awhile now and did not know that much (most?) of the site is back...but visible only if you are logged in!admittedly, I am horribly un-techy, but maybe this needs to be stated clearly somewhere for those of us who are "challenged" by modern doo-dads.
