    Hi,

    Lots of people visiting, not many posting! I think we need to inject a bit of fun back in to the forum

    What shall we do?

    I went to Dubai then came down to NZ to wait out hubster's job hunt. Been working on our lifestyle block ready to put it up for sale when the market improves, so been rather tied up. I think the activity level and the 'spirit' of a forum tends to be linked to getting the right mix of characters together at the same time. If they bounce off each other, you can get a good thing going but if the lively ones don't get any response they quickly lose interest and go elsewhere. And who would blame them?

    Hi everyone,

    I visit the forum often, but I must say, the bad news lately has been depressing me a bit!

    Hope things pick up soon!

    I always liked this forum, found it quite personal, on some of the bigger forums you could wait days for a reply, but not on here. I did dissapear for a while and when i came back i dont find it as user friendly. Must admit i am a complete numpty when it comes to computers, but i did find the old way better, is it just me???

    Hi,

    Cliff is right, forums do go through a cycle. Usually it hits the bottom of the cycle when there's no one brave enough to answer posts, lots of questions and no answers isn't pretty

    So, to those of you cowering in the corner, GET POSTING!!! Time to bring a bit of the old spirit back

    Default The R word

    Its world wide!
    I suppose many factors, like a lot more not looking to move at the moment or poor exchange rate could have the affect.
    or, maybe we are all busy enjoying the summer!
    I'l find time ..soon to post

    These are very difficult times for a lot of people around the world, but maybe it's all the more reason why we should stick together to provide support and companionship for each other in the hope that the situation changes for the better soon. After all, we're all in this together and have a common goal .
