Mainly here. I occasionally post on the Sun, but since the paywall went up its been pretty slow. Other than that, Trip Advisor Maryland forums and the Baltimore forums at Skyscraper City.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Nope, just here.

 

Well, I occasionally read and post on a forum that is for people with saltwater fish tanks, mostly when I'm stumped as to why my tank currently looks like shit.  But I don't think that's what you're talking about here.

Damn, the internet really does have everything, doesn't it?

115 active posters since Oct. 1st.
95 active posters since Jan. 1st.
80 active posters since Feb. 1st.
69 active posters since Mar. 1st.

 

Getting the people who check in occasionally to be more consistent would be an improvement.

 

Getting some of our contributors who don't regularly post on the board would be an improvement.

 

Getting some of the lurkers to join up would be an improvement (right now there are 8 registered users, and 105 lurkers on the board. Most users on the board at once was 409 on Dec. 12th).

 

Getting some of the registered posters that haven't checked in for a long time (there are 474 registered posters) would be an improvement.

 

 

Don't need a ton more. 

 

If we had 30-50 more consistent regulars, that would be great.

You can blame the Os for that.

For what?

 

Ohh, you probably think I'm indicating there has been a decrease.... 

No, that's not the case. (Yes, monthly rate has... but that ebbs and flows. Consistently there are 75-100 active posters a month.)

So, on pace there.

 

 

 

There has been general apathy though with the O's (and Ravens, and Terps)... which has limited how many posts we've been getting.

Post counts will start to increase as the O's season starts.  (Game threads being one reason.)

 

Generally, I'm okay with the active numbers above. 
What I was showing is that over 6 months we've had 115 different registered posters check in. 

(And hundreds of non-registered who lurk.)

If we get more of those people to consistently check-in, and post... that would be great.

 

 

Beyond that though, we have to find some new blood.  

We all like sports...  there have to be people we know that like talking sports, who would be good fits here.

Message board wise, I'm in a UNC board. That's it.

 

I'm in Facebook groups that pretty much scratch the same itch, however. Mostly sports/social issue merging, like this...but probably less tame, more barbershop-style debate, than a place like here.

 

I prefer it here more.

Received a message from a poster wanting to inform me they were going to go back to posting at OH, and wanted me to know.

 

I think that poster was afraid of how I'd take that.

I feel I've been clear on this, but if there is any question.....  I don't care.

These are message boards. You are posting for your entertainment. 

 

Post wherever you'd like, and you surely don't owe me an explanation.

If any of you are posting somewhere else... particularly the SB Nation sites...  I'd appreciate if you linked to the BSL content.
