Interesting observations Turvey, I'm new here and a little surprised the forum isn't busier. I too appreciate Webcentric's posts as thoughtful and intelligent.
I can probably give you a few reasons as to why the forum isn't busier. In the main, this forum now consists solely of 1/people posting in this thread which consists of my money is up, my money is down, I'm doing great, I'm doing terrible. No real thoughts or insights. (117 messages at this point) 2/ The PIP thread - or the gloat thread as I like to refer to it. This consists solely of google are going to pay us, they have said so. Great, I'm the first to have noticed this in xx state or yy country. Dwindling thank goodness but still stretches to 13 messages for September. 3/Adsense ads stuck/the stuck thread - why oh why do we need a thread about this. Yep stuck here, oh sorry they aren't any more, oh wait yep they are, no sorry, just had a massive dump etc etc.
Absolutely pointless all of them. Thats why the serious posters have all but up and left to join other invitation forums where there is actually some real discussion/help/advice. Don't get me wrong there are still some very knowledgeable people her but look at how many times they now post-rarely. Why do you think that is?
Now compare this to threads like: Best Position Of Mobile Ads - 4 messages Ads showing on site, not showing in stats area? - 2 messages Using GA to Track the Number of Times AdSense Doesn't Display an Ad - 2 messages
Are these of no interest to people because they perhaps need to think and show some knowledge?
As someone two posts up from me commented-wonder how long this post will last before it is interpreted as an attack on the mods which it certainly isn't as up to this point I haven't mentioned them.
Try out my theory. Post a thread about something slightly more difficult and see how many posts it gets or even views.
