Running a site like this can be difficult, particularly in the age of social media. Everyone seems to spend their time on social media more than on traditional forum sites, probably out of habit and convenience. Having said that, I make an effort to keep things ticking over here because there seems to be a small number of people giving the site at least some attention. I have also tried casting the net a little wider every now and again, with limited success.
I’m wanting to make this site as successful as I can be given the above. I’ve been keeping the news feed active, doing the podcast with Qwerty an Kat, and where I can jump into the forums and respond to threads.
What I would like to see is a bit of help from the community that do peruse the site. Firstly coming up with ideas to get the word out and build more of the community. Secondly if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see on the site, I’d love to hear about it!
I’m already doing an automatic posting of links to news articles on the site’s Twitter feed which gets a tiny amount of visibility, and I’m contemplating broadcasting our podcast recordings out via Twitch somehow. Anything additional we can come up with would be very much appreciate – so please let me know in the comments or in the forums!
