Ever since I started my new job, I haven't had the time the spend on ATS like I used to, but I still enjoy taking a quick peek at least once a day.
One of the places I like to peek is PTS. On PTS, the "New Post" page usually contains about five posts. When you click the "6-12", "12-18" etc.
hours you get anywhere from one to eight posts, tops. And half of those are Board Questions and Business!
I think when people see only two posts on a page, it perpetuates PTS's unpopularity. If people saw more posts per page, they would post more. The
appearance of posts would bear more posts, just as the lack of posts per page make the page stagnant.
So how about instead of measuring PTS in hours, it is measured in days? For example "Last Six Hours" would be "Last Six Days". That way, you would
see more than a couple of posts during a time period, I think that would make people want to contribute more.
