The boards aren't moving, despite efforts to revive it, it's just not working.

It's depressing isn't it. I've lost my form of entertainment. This means only one thing....I will have to get a real life.

I think it's because people just don't visit. Also personally I keep getting logged out and that wazzes me off. At least on Hithced I'd stay logged on, so if I popped on quickly I could a wuick reply rather than faffing about logging on.
I also think it was a mistake to separate BT and OT straight away. They should have kept them together then when it got busy separate them.

I think it's the split between BT and OT. I much preferred it all as one board.
I'm always on my phone and it's a bit of a pain to switch between boards, so most of the time I don't and I just stay on BT.
I think BT can be a bit samey without any ot posts and there's possibly not enough people using ot to get it going a bit more.

I also think it's the split between OT and BT. It's totally pointless. We've ended up as two pretty much seperate communities, and as on hitched, it will no doubt end up with an OT community and a BT community that has OT posts because people form relationships when using BT which is the reason you would come over here, not for OT.
I think the only hope is putting them back together. I am sick and tired of having to look at both forums, having two windows open and flicking between the two. The page that just gives the recent threads doesn't work for me, and you can't see the author of the posts which I find offputting as well.
It sucks. I hope they change it. Are the panels still consulted for opinions or is that all finished now?

I think that's it. Honestly I think it's *that* simple.
Merge the boards and all the posters who mainly come onto OT will reply to the BT threads and vice versa.
ETA - We've had this discussion before though and the bosses haven't commented. It's a shame we can't do a poll of all users to see if most would like to see the boards merged.

There is another option..... we all agree to boycott the OT board and just post on BT!
09/02/2013 at 20:56
That will only work if everyone does it though.

Also, I think loads of people are feeling really rubbish at the moment too so perhaps arent posting as much as normal. Putting the boards back together would be the best idea though and also having more posts displayed on the front page of BT as as soon as threads disappear to the second page you don't get replies.

On the page 2 thing, it's annoying how you can only get to page 2 by going to the bottom of page 1. Would be good having the pages at the top too like on hitched.

It's quiet because it's not Hitched. I can't post from my phone and I don't like the 2 forums.
I agree with a merge. x

I keep getting logged out so often lurk rather than logging in again. I can't post new threads from my phone. Two boards is clunky.

Has anyone gone too feedback and posted about 1 board instead of 2?
10/02/2013 at 07:59
I think the two need to merge as well. I don't think there are enough people on both to keep both the boards moving and exciting? Unless we bombard Hitched OT!
