I wonder if Admin' has any stat's on Forum traffic before and after migration - it does rather appear to be staggering to a slow, strangulated, demise........?

Maybe all is well in the town and there's nothing to moan about at the moment!

Seriously though, the amount of usage has undoubtedly reduced since the migration. Looking at the user list most of the 'usual suspects' from the old forum appear to be signed up so maybe there really is little to get people wound up at the moment or everyone's on Tinder or something instead.

I've had a mild dig at someone moaning about graffiti at Pansanger Park but doubt this can be manufactured into a red hot thread requiring an administrative intervention - more's the pity. Very little in the way of trade or restaurant recommendations either. I'll try and start something controversial about an ancient monument (not Peter Ruffles) and see if it has legs....

It seems like the number of people posting on this board has now reached a new low.

When you look at some of the threads and the small number of posts v the number of times the thread has been used, it's quite amazing.

And also a great shame. I have found the forum to be very useful for a variety of reasons over the years. Too many people viewing and not enough contributing.

:cry:

Hopefully the upgrade to make it better for smartphones may increase the content.

it's not just the forum. You just need to look at the blog too. It used to be regularly updated which was great for me, having not lived in Hertford for nearly 5 years but still living locally. The last update was 31st July 2014.

Such a shame as this place used to be a hive of activity.

OK, but take the post office closing for example, the blog would go in to the reasons why, more in-depth than 160 characters allows.
