A big thanks to all those who visit regularly, and I hope everyone continues to enjoy the site.

Situation normal, only 5% of that 3,000 active, and the other 5% lurk.

If you didn't make a post in 12 mths and had less than 3 total you got removed

You'll find a lot of new members who only post in the Wanted or For Sale sections and don't really contribute anything else to the forum community. I've got no problems with newbies (we all were once!) joining the forum and asking for help/guidance with their cars but not when they join just to chase or flog off parts in the Swapmeet section.

Maybe a requirement for a minimum amount of post, or a certain time frame (or a combination of both) before members can post in the Swapmeet section of the forum?

I don't know how hard it would be to implement. Probably only create headaches for Mods/Admins.

Are there any stats that show us how many of that 3000 number contribute more than a couple of times?
Just wondering :) Maybe a breakdown showing what percentages do what?? I might be asking a lot here so if the software isn't giving us that now then I would not suggest extra work for our admin team and its best left alone.

Cheers

Just having a quick look at the members, approximately 1300 have a zero post count. I know that posting in certain forum sections doesn't add to your total post count, however, 1300 members or around 1/3 of the forum members is a fair few.

Thanks for that :) ^^^^^
I am honestly surprised its only 1300 and not more like 2300 lol. However I guess some have posted maybe 3 times in their time here. And as Pat says we DO have a certain amount of serial lurkers.

Cheers

Has GMH-Torana thought of producing a flyer etc that could be handed/placed on cars to all torana enthusiasts (meaning placed on window) to increase peoples awareness of website .

It would be good to have all torana owners coming to a similiar meeting place .

P.S I was only aware of this site through google but flyers plastered on windows at shows, club events, carparks could result in alot more members, <------ If they own a torana obviously they have a interest in them.

Immatue admin (hehe)<--- add Homer Simpson here, what about a flyer that could be placed / stuck on someones windows ( by admins no doubt or selected forum members )

I can always be de-selected from the GMH-torana gene pool for thinking 2 much !

If someone wanted to design a flyer then we could put it up for any member to print some out before they go to an event.

Make it black and white and 1/4 to 1/2 A4 page.

Say you were going to Eastern Creek, Calder, Willowbank........just print a handful out and take em with you :D

As above, heaps more are just joining to ask for stuff then they leave, or join and never return.

Or others join and ask whether Antelope is a model or not.

Thought you might have something to say about that Jo.
