seriously though it doesn't even seem like there's a few dozen people on here. [who actually post anything]

at the time of this post,,

Currently Active Users

much has been said about the "voices" of shooting, the figures seem to indicate more of a "silence"

purely an observational point.

but be interesting perhaps to hear an explanation/discussion.

The silent majority. I expect there are many "fallow" members who look in but rarely and contribute even more rarely, if at all. But to be fair, the information on here and the knowledge is something of a reference resource to many. Although I do pipe up on here fairly regularly, I am on other forums (one for my motorcycle, for example) where I hardly call in at all, in fact maybe 6 months might go by (mostly in the winter). But I'm not sure we should condemn people for not taking a more active role.

Perhaps it's better to say nothing than just post things for the sake of it that are meaningless. I often write a reply on here, read it back and think to myself that I am just repeating what someone else has said, or my post doesn't really contribute to the discussion and then delete it before posting. Although this one manages to get through my vetting process.

What would you do? Jettison members who haven't contributed for a certain period? Not convinced that is a good idea, unless the period is a very long one.

Some of the inactive members will be people who no longer want to be members here and would have unsubscribed, but that’s not possible.

Perhaps the no-contributors just buy things via PMs.
I sold something to a member I have never heard of before or since.

ok pedro, with respect the post isn't meant to condemn anyone, especially for not posting,,[that's hardly likely to encourage them is it?]

and I too often find others posts well worth a read, especially those with superior knowledge. ["yer never too old ta learn" as the saying goes]

I often write something and then delete it not necessarily because someone else has said it , but usually 'cos people seem to misunderstand my manner and start to sidetrack me into a meaningless internet argument, not something that happens person to person I can assure you, for no other reason other than there's no mistaking my words and their emphasis. I find it difficult to back down and enormously frustrated I have to listen to b/s I wouldn't have to if face to face. there's just more respect both ways.
this was vetted and like your post,,, got through.:cool:

the most users online ever was only 386 clearly nobody has much to say.:zzz:

and realistically speaking there's no point in "jettisoning" people who are no longer here anyway. so like you not convinced its worthwhile.

If the cat has a sore arse there will be 100`s of replies with remedies for sore arsed cats!

If the dog cant sleep without a tot of rum expect much the same.

If someone posts a photo of a "good one" whether feather or fur it will bring a 1000 views but a handful of replies...BUT they do save the photos and send them to their mates!
