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

Another good point Dave - often missed. A wee word of thanks or encouragement goes a long way to keep interest alive. I have sweated for many long hours on topics with others over the years and often surprised how quickly they 'die a death' apart from the usual few few stalwarts - and that is my main point. wink.gif
One would imagine that out of 9000 members we would have a few more participate in 'Word Games' and the like, but its just a few of us that keep the things going - and its not as if these items are not viewed but they are, by many of the lurkers who for some reason cannot or will not offer any input.

A very moving post Rab, but enough about your proposed change of house rolleyes.gif Hope it all goes well though smile.gif

JimD, I agree about Norrie's photies of his walks, it could be a place for other to post similar photo's of their outings. The "where am I" would continue as it was intended. (this is not a complaint about the thread mellow.gif )

I suspect there a lot of fok who feel intimidated about posting but there a lot of others who just come to GG for a specific reason, like looking for information or a relative, then move on. The focus on Glasgow issues is hardly surprising though, check the title of the website.

Quality, Rab - not quantity ! rolleyes.gif

I wondered who would bring that chestnut up! Where have I mentioned quantity over quality? One mans 'quality' might be boring to another. Many current topics bore me to tears and I therefore ignore them. How are you going to define 'quality' on a board like this bilbo? At least from quantity, one can sort out ones personal quality! That probably rests my case!

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! Or are you suggesting that this board would be as entertaining and interesting without the few of us who take the time to make it so?

Who are the few Rab, who are you talking about? Whats is interesting to some is maybe not that interesting to others, do you not agree Rab? If 9,000 plus members do not participate I think that speaks for itself. When you speak like this Rab it puts pressure on members old and new to work as hard as you say you do on the gg's,who the hell wants to do that Rab !. Take it a bit easier and have fun ,,,, some days its hot ,,,,some days its not biggrin.gif

Ash , I for one have known the title of this website for more than 4yrs
and I think if the members who do most of the posting showed a little more interest in the posts of others from different countries , who knows
maybe some more of those 9,000 so called members would start posting and put some fresh content onto these boards , it is something I think is badly needed .

I agree Angel, and have you noticed that the only 'other' countries that seem to get mentioned are the US or Australia. Very little reference is ever made of Canada or New Zealand, both British Commonwealth countries.

Ooh ! Whatever happened to light banter ? I have seen you advocate it in the past. Time to take a big chill pill, Rab smile.gif
