i know the ATS end is the main deal but the BTA section roxors. there are so many good threads and there is no activity in them..
i go to bed thinking i am going to get up and have some action in whatever threads and nothing.

i am not only talking about my threads but any threads.

with all these members, there will be days that go by before anothe rpost hits whatever thread....

kinda bums be out....

my little forum of 110 or so people seems to be more active than the BTS sometimes.

Yeah every morning between 2:00am and 5:00am. I wish more BTSers would not sleep just to entertain this poor robot....

I'm trying as hard as I can........


It's 2:45 AM in my time zone and I do tend to haunt BTS most nights. I do see a lot of the same folks around on the night shift, and as a day sleeper, when I wake up I see a fair bit of action on threads I've followed the night before.

One nice thing about being on the boards at night is that it is quiet. It gives me a chance to catch up on some threads and make posts without having to hammer out replies to people responding to me.

It's not just BTS.


I have noticed an increasing lack of activity lately over on ATS as well.


When I first started, it took 20 to 30 flags and close to 100+ replies for threads to make front page and now there are front pagers and even top stories with only 2 or 3 flags and 12 replies or so.


I don't know what's going on.


It even seems like the staff activity has slowed down.

I see nowhere near as many mod edits/warnings/etc lately as I did even a couple of months ago.


Perhaps this is just a slow time of year? Maybe everyone is just gearing up for christmas and dedicating more time to their real lives?



I don't know.

Hi/
I seriously believe that when most of the time is spent on ATS,BTS it just seems to get that way, that's all!
It may help to do something else and get back a little while later.things pick up and slow down all the time!
It all depends on what you mean by 'lack of activity'?
This has happened before on ATS and posted and so it will again and again.

And another thing, some members will look at a post and wont have anything to say because that's the way it happens!

does that help?


:bnghd:

I agree..some days it is very slow here...
I come here for entertainment and wind up entertaining myself usually.
Thank god Tets is usually on early in the morning..and Simi...
A few others..or I would be bored silly.
Perhaps the holiday season is a factor right now..
and of course those members who go to work every day.
That leaves the rest of us to come up with content for them to read when they get off work.Wow, thats a new perspective.
Those of us that are on all the time...make up the bulk of user content..woohoo..at least I feel valuable.

Well, i agree that there is not much action. I have been noticing myself, more so on ATS!

Helen and i made our own fun last night, right Helen?


I have a tendency to visit every thread and stirr something when this happens. Its like being in a housefull of people and everyone is still sleeping.

OK, guys, he's probably going to find out sooner or later.

The reason there's less activity is because of the special ATS compartmentalized 'Special Activity' duties.

It all started back in 2004:

Here is our Manuel
(In Spanish; caution: several large images)

This year we are training to replace food with carefully carved and realistically painted substitutes made of wood. (The hardest to do are strawberries, with the little hairs)

Last year we replaced milk and cereal with elmer's glue and ice cream with mashed potatoes.

So you'll have to understand - just like Santa and his Elves, BTS SA squads are very busy this time of year.

Well, I don't think BTS is nearly as inactive as PTS is. I mean, some of those threads don't move for hours at a time!!! :shk:


A lot of it has to do with the tie of the year, I think. What bothers me is the fact that the moderators haven't really been active. I have to wonder if something is up...

Wow it must be REALLY bad when DG isn't getting any action


ATS is starting to look more like 'googletube comments' everyday.
