Default Not welcomed

Wow, three posts with 30ish people that read them and not one person replied to any of them. Not exactly feeling welcome at this board.

There are no regular members here to welcome you. I peek in every couple of days and if I see someone needing help with an illness, behavior or nutrition question I answer it. Otherwise, there is very little activity.

The "views" of your posts are mostly not from actual people, they are spam-bots and things like that.

The reason I don't spend a lot of time and effort in this forum is because it crashes periodically. Then it is down for months and months, so even if a few people had started posting regularly, they give up and go else where.

Sometimes during a crash, much activity is lost, including all posts and any new members who had joined just before the crash period. It's very discouraging to have thousands of posts just disappear, hours of effort I've spent helping people and interacting, friends lost forever.

So now I just pop in, see if anything is urgent, answer it if it is, and pop out. I don't take time with welcome posts or trying to engage anyone, because chances are there will be a crash and you'll be gone anyway.

So don't take it personally, there's only me that can be considered regular and I've explained why I don't engage.

Hi, I'm new here too. I joined a few weeks ago and only just received my first reply - from another new member! I hadn't bothered posting anything other than my intro until now. Not much point. I tried to join about a year ago and had to give up because the site thought I was a spammer. I finally got through recently but I shouldn't have bothered. There are obvious issues. Maybe the site should just be shut down altogether? Is there no one at the helm??

There isn't any reason why new members shouldn't try to get things going if they want to make this an active fun forum for themselves. It would be like starting a new forum together, if you wanted to do that.

Just realize that the likelihood of a crash is pretty big, and you'll be adrift again.

But if you think it's worth the effort, by all means start building your new community here.

There are no active moderators at this time. Contact Administration for assistance.

I wonder why it keeps crashing? And why I had such a tough time becoming a member in the first place? It looks like it was a pretty nice site at one time.
