I believe LO to be a great source of information and a fun place to discuss things relating to the GW world. What I wan't to know is, why isn't there more people on these forums? Now I know there are a fair few people on, but its not as active as it should be.
For instance, most popular forums have replys to topics within a minute, but here it make an hour or more! Its surprises me because GW's forums (which suck big time) are extremely popular when clearly this is a better forum!
I am just wondering is there any way of promoting these forums more, I myself would love to help aswell.
I think one of the great things about this forum is the speed. It is not too fast.
The rapid answers are not the best. OK sometimes they are, but I prefer a well thought-through answer albeit a couple of hours or even days after I made the question to fifteen rapid mumbojumbo ones within a couple of minutes.
As always it is sad when people do not realise how good ones favourite is, I agree... happends me all the time.
Well its not really the speed, its more about the number of responses. I like a varying amount of responses and views from different people, you know?
I'm a big fan of the international flavout here. The other forums that I frequent are very Australian so I know I'll see something different whenever I visit here.
This forum is also a little less intense than some others, with much friendlier responses.

I agree, here there isnt as many members as other forums, such as 40K online and GW forums, but looking throughout the structure I prefer this one. 40K online has a quick reply time, which in some ways is great, b ut in others just makes you think about the poor people wo nothing else to do but reply as quickly ads possible, as if in a race.
Another problem here is the amount of people who have joined and not even posted. I know I am new and cant really boast about my level of posting, but if youi did a member purge, you could probably remove around 300 or maybe more unactive people.

Actually as we currently stand if we were to do a member purging, we could probably axe, at a conservative estimate, something around two to three thousand people, if not more. We have around 13,000 members, but only maybe a quarter to a fifth of those have posted recently.
So it goes.

Personally, I wouldn't be in favor of a mass of culling infrequent users. I know I wouldn't be a happy bunny if after taking an extended break from LO only to come back to the website to find my profile and any trace of my previous existence expunged from all records. If dormant member accounts are an issue then purge them after six months or so of inactivity.Originally Posted by Phobos
I hear voices...and they don't like you!
Six months is a nice round number, but we do have members that disappear for as much as a year at a time and then return.

nobody need to worry, we dont purge anyone at Librarium Online. The amount of registered users is also attractive to new members.

I love the professionalism on this forum, the friendly responses(for the most part *) and the elaberate answers. I like the forum as it is, it seems to be a bit quieter now than usual but I think that may be credited to the season. I like that it isn't overcrowded(too many posts and replies). It also has a user friendly format(thank-you LO).
So basically with its current inhabitants, I love LO.
*as for the mood of people. A few posters seem to be getting in more arguements and losing their patience with some people nowadays... I don't know what it can be credited to but it can be disturbing to see the friendly mood on LO being turned and people's posts being closed because others argue over the response.
As a whole LO is awesome, thanks LO, thanks to the other posters for making it a relatively friendly place. (I know I did stray a bit off topic but a few things there had to be said and can relate to the enitial topic as for my opinion on the popularity of LO)
