Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by Mister Paul, 15 Aug 2007.
...that there's not a whole lot of cycling talk going on at the moment?
Let's start up some threads.
I got a bike
I just started a cycling related topic.
You mean generally, or in the Cafe in particular??
Generally I have notices this as well.
And I don't think it's helping in attracting new members.
Which is why I've just started 2 more. Let's get this place moving a bit.
Everybody is occupied with Word Association!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i've started a cycling one
probably becuase this is 'cakestop' where we talk about everything BUT cycling?

Keep up! I was talking about the forum as a whole.
then it should have been in soapbox as a 'moan'!
No, it should be in cakestop as something for us to discuss over a flapjack. To see whether we can improve things.
i'm not discussing anything till i get my flapjack!
It's a good job we've got BTFB on here, you know, the bloke who's a year older, he's always asking bike related questions.
(so does bonj, but SHHhhh!, he already knows the answers !)
I do agree Paul - Cafe and Soapbox are the life of this forum, with Know How coming in behind, then Racing and then Beginners and Commuting.
Back in the olden days, C+ was driven by Know How and Beginners, with Cakestop / Soapbox coming up behind.
I know I went to the site for the Beginners info (and Commuting), and stayed there for Cakestop.
What IHMO we need to keep this place as a genuine cycle-focused site is the ability to attract new members whether it be through racing / know how / beginners (with beginners having the broadest appeal I would suggest), and the Cafe then would come second.....
This way around, I think it may struggle. A forum with no new members is destined to stagnate.....
