Unusually Quiet?

Doesn't it seem quite strange that very few guests are posting in this forum at the moment? I remember when there used to be a lot of guests posting in this forum. For example, just look at the difference in post times. Surely we used to get a lot of posts in the guestbook even in the inactive days ... that's right, before more wonderful users came along.

Ideas?

US on vacation would be one reason.

No, the Guestbook isn't just about spam, it is about feedback of the site. MathsIsFun's idea makes sense, but it can't be that all of our traffic comes from the US ...

Re: Unusually Quiet?

Quite likely... I haven't met anyone around here interested in math; even those few who are good at it pretend to be terrible at it because it "isn't cool" to be smart.

This is not true, in fact, it is the complete opposite.

Re: Unusually Quiet?

I think what's "cool" changes as you grow up. In Junior School, it's cool to be fascinated in sciences, in Mid school it's not cool to be smart, in High school smart people get to make fun of others.

The forum needs more promotion if we want more visitors.

Re: Unusually Quiet?

What kind of promotion?
I am asking this because I have some suggestions in my mind.....
Has it got anything to do with the print media?
Or promotion by approaching the Education Institutions directly, with gifts to offer....
Or any other mode?

Hey, have you all noticed the change in MathsIsFun's avatar?

Re: Unusually Quiet?

I noticed that! I tend to use avatars to identify people, so I didn't even realise the second poster was MIF until Devantè mentioned him and I looked again. tongue


Why did the vector cross the road?

Re: Unusually Quiet?

From my experience  i say that we should promote because 90% of the kids i kno dont kno about this site.

How bout facebook groups for promotion?
many ppl use facebook and i guess they will join/glance at this site if they see on facebook.:/
I could start 1 if u want MathIsFun!

Re: Unusually Quiet?

Yes! I changed my Avatar to my new puppy! He is a fast and alert little dude.

Promotion on the web is easiest, and costs nothing. So Facebook sounds like a good idea.

Ariel (the Archangel).

You can be sitting down and without warning a dog crashes into your lap. He just launches himself at you!

Ariel is a lovely name, and one of the interesting characters in William Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'.!
