    What do you guys need?


    by zlitocook ·

    To pick up the techrepublic? It seems to be slowing down, I drop in every day to look around and do not see much new stuff!
    I start with discussions, then go to tech q/a and there is not much new stuff posted there so I go to News and look around. But I like the descussions so I try to get some things going there.
    Would you like me to send more people your way or how do you get people to come to your site?
    I have been here for a while and like your website but it seems to have hit a slow point.
    How can I help?

      Something like… a free copy of vista… errr… nevermind…. you’re trying to ATTRACT more visitors, not scare them away.

      I just joined TR recently and have looked around… I enjoy many aspects of this site. However… the Tech Q&A area is frustrating. Most question posters don’t seem to understand how the points system works. That’s ok… there are many of us who just like to help out. Get rid of the points system altogether, as I believe it causes more stress than it’s worth.

      And have been trying to enhance the site.

      I have seen some slowdown in the discussions but saw something similar last August as well. People just don’t participate in the summer like they do in the winter.

      It has been awhile since we had some “just good fun” threads- although Mickster has a knack for coming up with stuff that you can just respond to. Earwigs was fun.

      I get frustrated with TQA for much the same reason that Fungus does. I know that there is a plot afoot to lose the point system and hopefully that will help.

      Believe me, after school starts, there will be all kindds of new input!

          Life isn’t fair? ?:|

          I always got swatted here. I was a rabid Mets fan and always replied that it had to be fair because if it was foul, I’d get to swing the bat aga-whack! :0
