More activity on the board

People should be more active on the board (and yeah that includes me too) because very often the last activity was like 12 hours ago. In other boards that ussually is just 5 minutes or so Happy. Cat, can't you make a notice on the noticeboard?

I think there is a big time difference, as we have a group of people who post from Europe and then a group of people who post from Australia and then the US so, even though we do post often, sometimes it will take a few hours as everyone is on different times.

Not saying thats the only reason though, just one of them.

I don't really know how you can MAKE people be active though. It's going fairly well I think, considering the main appeal of the website is the project section. But obviously there can always be more =)

and I'm trying to stop posting soooo much because my post count has just zoomed up but it's only me who seems to have a problem with that so I'll just keep posting my random musings!

i end up coming to the boards while waiting for new projects to show up.

how many people work on approving them anyway? I'm guessing noone from the U.S is doing it because things don't seem to get approved at any decent hour in my time zone hehe
They should get aprogram to automatically approve them and give the crafter the duty of assigning the category it goes to .
that would save time .
They could always check out the new projects later to make sure they are acceptable and remove ones they don't approve of.

yes these boards are slow .
Also there aren't many active topics that are of interest to me .. which is why i'm posting in this one which hasn't been posted in for 2 days lol,

i love attacking the board while I wait patiently for new projects to post. I do notice a dramatic decrease in project posts , I wonder if its because cat is still in the process of moving, cause when I first got here, I notice posting of projects like almost every hour. but now its like i have to wait till the next day for my projects to post. But I refuse to runaway *shakes fists in air** I will be victorious and overcome my inpatient self....CRAFT PROJECT HERE I COME!....**Ram ages thu her crafting area**

I know I know
kudos to her ( any anyone else helping) for actually creating this place and sticking to it.
I do think a program would relieve some of that work load.
I know nothing about programs and how they are created and used though hehe.
I would volunteer to be a projects approver to get things done during the day in EST, but I have this problem with jumping around from place to place and losing interest when something becomes a chore.
So i probably wouldn't last too long.

How long since this place was started anyways?
I only found it maybe 2 weeks ago

I'd happily volenteer to approve projects since I'm here most of the day cuz I have nothing else to do.

it started in 2001 as a blog and then turned into a site in 2007, all that kind of info is on the home page.

we're about 5 -7 hours a head depending on the state, it's 5 to 7. I have a friend in Canada and when she's at Uni she's 4 hours behind and when she's at home she's 7 hours behind!

EDIT: haha Roma I completely agree I was gonna say the same thing!!

I like the activity of posting as it isn't too busy and most people who use the board post often anyway. Telling people to be more active on the board is like saying to someone that they have to talk more, for no actual reason. That's my opinion anyway.
