... Its not just about answering posts, it is about starting threads, using a bit of brain, doing a bit of research, and putting a bit of effort into giving others some interest ...

Thats very true Rab.
I; a non-Christian, fired up a topic on Cathedrals after first tying up with Cash-ma-Giro and Wee Davy who gave me the original idea. I spent months building a file of pictoral and historical detail to keep it interesting and even included some controversial points to encourage arguement or discussion. Unfortunately my computer crashed and it took a long time to get it up and running again and it crashed again ... and again ... as did the replacement, so I put the one, which I'm now using, together from bits of both.
All the cathedral data is on the original pc which means to access it I'd have to take bits out of this one and ... and .... and ...
The topic died the death through no further input ... same with that other (for me) great topic which Cash fired up; the Art topic.
Cash was accused of starting too many topics... Hellooohh. ... an old and not in best of health member who tried his best to add some interest to the boards and get some people laughin' - thinkin' or argueing the toss. Now he's gone. Some of his topics were controversial; and what's wrong with that, but never insulting ... and he felt forced to leave at the end of it all.
A wee man who with walkin' difficulties walked around Glasgow to take before and after pictures for this board and was eventually hounded off for his religious take on things.
That was unforgivable.

All due respect and buckets of thanks go to Norrie who has taken on the immense task of keeping Ross McKenzie's great thread alive and well; otherwise, who knows where that might have gone ... and while I'm here; and bein' nice for a change, another merci buckets to Wee Davy who, inspite of illness, does his best to keep us entertained - and doesn't mind gettin' the odd slaggin' in between tongue.gif biggrin.gif

Input ... input ... input ... come on guys, gies a laff ... or somethin' tae think aboot biggrin.gif

No Rab am not saying that at all but since your asking I will say that I prefer to read the shorter posts that holds my interest, posts about everyday life, and a few lines are fine as thats where my interest is caught,,,right at the begining. As we know it only takes a few interesting words and a post can snowball, right Rab. smile.gif

I have found when posting some of my stories is that there is no reaction or even any comments I could tell a lot more but the impression I get is that a lot of the members cant relate to what I post and unless you keep to a familiar glesga topic you are typing into thin air so to speak dry.gif

Don't let that put y' aff Dave. rolleyes.gif

A call to Martin (GG) ... I can't begin to imagine what difficulties are involved in organising such a thing as a web site but I've always wondered if when using the "Search" options it might not be possible to include a "Search by Topic" option. I know there is a "See member's topics" option but I don't mean that.
On most occasions when I use the search option I get sometimes up to 48 pages of unrelated stuff which simply includes one or more of the words used in the search. This can be tedious and very off-puting where as a "Topic Search" option would drastically reduce the amount of dross one has to sift through to find a suitable topic to match the element desired to be posted.
Like I say, I have absolutely no idea if such an option might be possible but it certainly might be practical.

I do agree with your post Dan , there is'nt much interest fom the members on the boards , on Topics outside of Glasgow / Scotland ,
there are of course a few who may reply but those are exceptions,
it's just to bad , makes the boards all one sided . smile.gif

But remember, the 57 could be the same folk looking in more than once. And that's now 8 and 26 smile.gif

There are some threads which naturally run their course. The Cathedral one was good and I managed to contribute with a few photo's. That was just luck, as i had just returned from holiday and took some photo's in Dublin. I like to think that people will make a constructive contribution when it is a subject they are interested in. You cannot force people to do so. That only alienates them.

I enjoy Norries walks but I also think it could also stand alone, in it's own thread, as he kindly lets us know where he has been rather than guessing - and never getting the answer. But what would then happen to "Where am I?"

G Lass. I can't accept that out of 9,000 + members + visitors, we cannot have a lot more participation on this board. Its just lack of interest or canny be bothered. If we all showed this attitude, there would be no board. Its time for a shake-up/wake-up!

What happened here? Och, never mind - ignore it!

*I may be in a better frame of mind tomorrow as I have just heard I can exchange contracts next Tuesday - hooray!. I still think we need some work on here. Attached Image
