RE: How Many Members Are...

If nobody posts, there won't be much to read.

We all have differing levels of knowledge and experience in different aspects of boats and boating. With a forum like this, we can ask about what we don't know and share with others what we do know.

Theoretically, in the end, we will all know everything there is to know about boats and boating!* :wink:

RE: How Many Members Are...

I also noticed it seems quiet in terms of posts...

I am a new member and we just purchased our boat in January, so I laughed when I saw "veteran member" next to my name which really just means I ask a ton of questions. We are bringing our boat home, up from NC to the Chesapeake next week and we are very excited. We have our broker coming with us which was a great service add on when choosing him, he is so knowledgeable and we are not so much.

Hi Martha - Glad you like your boat.* Great that the broker came with you!* This is a very good forum.* Many smart boaters, lots of great answers.* Search archives and you will find pretty much what you want to learn.* Although visits have slowed it seems that new owner*Andy R will get items back in order.* Happy boating days!! - Art

Except for the Faux OTDE posts ...I think there has been a dramatic slow down.

And I could care less about OTDE...

I don't know Scott, seems like when I'm unable to log on for a day or so there are so many posts it takes a couple of hours to get through them. Maybe everyone's out boating, after all it's been a mild winter.

No facts but it seems slow to me too. Used to be that every day there were new posts in everything but anchoring. Not so much anymore.

I just looked at the stats of the total posts per week and they seem to be inline with normal averages from the past.* You can see a pronounced slow down from a couple weeks ago and that is probably attributed to the temporary closure of OTDE.* Following the closure a flurry of posts increased posts counts and with OTDE temporarily closed we have less posts in that section lowering the average as well.

Andy R:* I ask respectfully... approx 20X drop after*short*increase/flurry due to unexpected OTDE closing, temp or otherwise... seems pretty severe, is it not?

Art, note the bubble comment on the bottom right that shows why there is a drop at the end. That week is for THIS week and it's only Monday thus the numbers only show posts for Sunday.* I suspect the Monday post totals will show up sometime tonight when a schedule task is run by the server.* As the week passes our numbers will increase as well. The sky is not falling...

RE: How Many Members Are...

Personally I'm tired of these polls/threads about OTDE and others throwing fits and posting about leaving. They are ridiculously redundant. Anyone that has read the moderators and owners responses should be intelligent enough to see they have answered the question of its re-opening in great detail already.

"Beating a Dead Horse" should have been the name of this thread.

Hey Martha. Where on the Chesapeake are you going to keep your boat. I'm headed up to Seaford DE this weekend to visit my boat. I sold it to a great guy from NC and we're going for a short cruise this next week on the upper bay. Larry

Ron Ive read several of your posts, in other threads than this.* Believing I somewhat comprehend your origin, I would like to remind and recommend...
*
During Hitlers too quick rise to power, alongside increasing free-hand doings of his infamous Third Reich Nazi Party and SS troopers, that developed into WWII, there was much death, illness, and ruined families that maybe could have been avoided if enough honest German citizens had spoken out and banded together in large enough force and in timely enough fashion.* Perhaps WWII would never have happened and maybe Hitler would not have gained*full power??*
*
That said; please do not summarily dismiss the need for in-depth thought provoking discussions and debate between thinking (simply disregard the foolish banterers) mariners regarding the currently too quickly altering state of affairs that are obviously developing inside and between the USA and other nations political, financial, business, energy, environmental/climate/food-source, military, religious, and social groups.* 20<sup>Th</sup> Centurys fleeting days of Business as Usual are now past tense; a new paradigm for life is emerging and its shape/contour should be well thought-over by not only the few leaders at top... but also by the masses too.* I again mention, Germanys too silent population in regard to Hitler and the Third Reich!
*
I fear that if too many honest, upstanding persons stand back for too long without collectively joining discussions,*for understanding of ourselves as*a united force, that future years may somewhat resemble one or more ugly portions of history.
*
I ask you to accept TF OTDE as a needed, wholesome, and multi leveled idea exchange for mariners.* It would be great if you would join into confabs for which you may feel your ideas hold weight.* And, I surely ask banterers previously frequenting OTDE to please either place intelligent dialogue into properly developing discussions, or - - > Simply Stay Out!* Thanks!!*
*
IMHO - Art *****

I don't see that Andy's graph says anything other than the OVERALL number of posts are down. Having fewer posts of non-boating related stuff doesn't mean anything about the state of the rest of the community. Your displeasure of the temporary locking of OTDE is noted and well documented, but try not to read into it that the TF are on the edge of the abyss. If we closed the Power Systems thread, the number would drop too. Maybe not at the same rate, but that's because OTDE has a few people that really post often.

Patience grasshopper.

*I'm not sure what all of the yammering is about.* Last week was not as low as week 49 or 52 in 2011 and OTDE was at it full antics.* Yes the graph fell off but that was because it represented one day instead of seven like the other points.* Also you have one person that posts only to OTDE and they have not posed at all.

OK. I will post again to keep the stats up! With the announcement of the new TF coming this week, let's all wait and see who stays and who goes.

Meanwhile, I will return to stripping wet plywood from the aft cabin ceiling (water intrusion at the mast shroud fitting) which will keep me busy for a few days. Funny... it was completely hidden damage until the fitting pulled up. The headliner was good at waterproofing and hiding the deterioration above, A little dryout, CPES West System, plywood... whatever it takes! (Maybe this should be posted in maintenance)
