Compared to other open forums I am a member of, I have noticed that there is very little feedback or participation here, I should probably also point this comment at myself too to be fair anyway. But, it seems like most people post, but don’t really look or comment on other’s posts much. I am just curious if others feel the same? Perhaps it is the layout of the forum, I don’t know.

I thought maybe this might generate some discussion? But, I think if everyone tried to also make a comment for every post they make it would help this forum be more useful for everyone.

I feel that way too.  I think the structure of the forum is hard to use.  And sometimes I have started posts or replied and they have not appeared. I messaged Chris to find out what I am doing wrong and haven’t heard back.  I suppose he gets a lot of messages.

Now I do see some of my past posts when I look at my profile, so something improved!  But though it shows that I started one topic, when I click to see the one post, it says there are none.

I wonder – is there moderation on starting topics?  or commenting?  I looked in the guidelines for the forum and it sounds like moderation is supposed to be pretty rare.

    Herd Reply Theory

Indeed, as valid as the Herd Immunity Theory, if you can bate the Subject field so that 80% of readers get mad, sad, happy or glad, then you have achieved Heard Reply success!

How this helps. Wasn’t really intended to be. If so please go to Funny Or Die dot com.

Did someone say Bill Gates is a Shepard or a leopard?

This is not really open world forum – like the question and answer type you see often.   Its more of commentary format on given topics.   They can take a more interactive theme sometimes, but usually not.   The comments are not even threaded.   But questions can be asked and are answered.

Is there a forum where new members can say hello and nail down their first post or two?  Sorta set the tone for new members to feel encouraged?  I looked a bit for something like that.

Also wonder if there are or could be “greeters” on the site who reach out to newer members, again, just to set the tone, and “Say hi.”

Since I’m new here myself I’ll put my foot in it.

Hi and hello from Washington, DC.  You’d think things would be kinda crazy here just now, what with daily protests and such on top of everything else.  In truth, daily somethings are the norm here in DC, and we often have two or three things piled on.  It’s been this way here for a long, long time.

I actually came to check up on some new posts as I know I’ve asked a few questions now, some of which have been answered, but not actually answered any posts myself. But then I don’t feel nearly as educated on any of the subjects as a lot of people on here appear to be.

So I’ve felt a bit bad about not giving back as much and am glad that anyone bothered to answer any of mine in the first place. Hopefully at some point I’ll be able to contribute more.

Yeah this forum software is rather terrible. It’s like from 2000.

Yeah, I kinda feel the same way.  Spent a bit of time recently crafting a response, but it was never posted to the thread even though thread shows I was the last poster.  I am looking forward to the software improvements.  Even still these are minor issues considering the spot on info about the

Communist

CHinese

Acute

Respiratory

Syndrome.

At least thats the descriptions that works best from my perspective

since it is appearing more and more to be man made AND deliberate spread by the Communist Chinese WHILE they bought up PPE supplies.

SARS is well known

MERS is well known

CCHARS, pronounced “CHARS” makes more sense to me that covid 19

DAMN, this forum software is beyond belief. I just wrote a reply here and forgot to copy it in case it doesn’t post, and I get this: “ERROR: Are you sure you wanted to do that?” – Well yeah no shit, in fact I was explaining how certain strings (websites) are BANNED on this forum, specifically the string ‘bit chute .com’ (without spaces) — see here: https://www.peakprosperity.com/forum-topic/videos-you-think-chris-would-benefit-from-watching-4/

Well, that sounds just as bad as Facebook, tbp.
