But gotta take it with a grain of salt too. There'll doubtless be some peeps who just "don't do" polls. There'll doubtless be some peeps responding who are actually way, way more 'reader' than 'contributor'. But it should be a concern. Coz attracting new peeps in is kinda like breathing for a forum. Let it stop and you're gonna end up dead.
Yep, I absolutely agree with you catweazle. And I agree that this result may be a tiny bit skewed by those factors. However the results ARE surprising and I agree, they should be of concern.
I've felt for a long time that we had a very strong and loyal community of posters and regulars but I never realised just how loyal they were. :) And the complete lack of response below 3 years astounds me. I never realised it had gotten quite that bad here.
