Is everyone on holiday? Boards are moving very slowly!
20/08/2013 at 07:21
It's the same stuff every time I log in....come back everyone!!
20/08/2013 at 07:22
:-( It's disappointing x

I though that the other day! Lets get things moving!

Dead isn't it. Holidays maybe but that can't be the only reason.

It was dead yesterday, I started a few topics but it took ages to get it all moving again lol

I think because the ttc threads have gone to a separate board it looks quieter as well although ttc isn't that busy really.

I use the over view so get all the boards and just answer to any of them lol! And yesterday it was dead on allot the boards, I don't think it's be aide of TTC going to a separate board because its quiet there too. Just a few regular posters missing makes the boards move slow

There are lots of people on holiday and there's been a fair few new babies in the last week or two as well which I guess is keeping people busy! I've been out and about a lot whilst H is on paternity leave but will probably be around a bit more once he is back to work next week.

I'm on the boards during the day, but I'm trying to pack andmove house this week so haven't had the same amount of time to post.

I think the problem is there's too many boards for not enough users, there's posts I'd consider to be baby talk on OT and I'm not sure why TTC needs a separate board when surely it's part and parcel of having a baby. The forum software isn't great and the lack of a mobile site will put people off, me included.

Starting new thread a from my phone is a chore (only lets you if you do a blank post with a pic first) so I tend just to comment on what's already here..almost need a MILK challenge

Isis - I think it was felt that some of the ladies that were struggling to conceive or who had sadly miscarried didn't feel completely comfortable coming on to the baby board so it was moved to a separate forum.

I think it's been very slow for a while, I don't think there are enough users really, such a shame. I will try and think of more posts to start.

CC I can well understand that but what makes a forum, IMO, is the wealth of knowledge and sadly far too many of us have been through a miscarriage, myself included, that having a separate board means people don't get to take advantage of that knowledge. I've ttc and I never go on the ttc board whereas if it was all on the same board then I might read some threads and help. Sadly the forum doesn't have enough users for so many boards, it's trying to be something it's not IMO whilst somewhere like mumsnet needs more boards as its SO busy.

IMHO the boards have started to gradually get quieter since the Mumdrum launch and since the Hitched BT closed. There isnt that usual influx of newcomers that just shift from the wedding planning or OT boards.

Hello! I'm on hols - see you in 2 weeks :)
20/08/2013 at 11:53
I think the log in problems dont help, I still csnt log in from my iphone despite contacting mumdrum numerous times. Ive now given up so I only contribute when I can get on my tablet. I read all the threads but cant log in to answer!
