I was actually thinking that myself Les, I wasn't sure whether it was not being used the new forum layout making it look busier than it actually is or not.

Controversy warning! Perhaps there would be more woodworking threads if there was more restriction on which subjects were allowed to be discussed in the General Chat section. For example, no politics, no religion, no sport. Where did I put my flak jacket?

sport isnt covered by the existing restrictions, but politics and religion is. Obviously if a mod has an interest in some of the political discussion, it is allowed...

I reckon it has much to do with seeing who's online, recognising fimiliar names that makes that whole community vibe on a forum quite a bit better.
Especially if you have a question in mind or problem, and spot someone that might hopefully chime in at that time if your in a pickle.

I'm not sure I've seen any sport discussed here, and the same with religion (although someone has a religious quote as a signature). So they're a bit of a red herring. Politics, on the other hand........

Neither have I, I was just covering all the usual bases. My personal opinion is that topics of discussion on a woodworking forum should be limited to woodworking (even tenuously).

Its 100% more active and as you say mikeG it could be more people just testing the waters out.I for one am a woodworker of 30+ years and have never fully found the old layout user friendly and discussions seem to have got side tracked on many of the posts.I suggested a couple of new sections in the past and it just got blanked my the admin/mod guys.

There was a posting on here this week which is on a project i am doing at present.It was about converting a startrite bandsaw from 440v to 240v and would have had to trawl the old forum looking for the thread after a couple of weeks away.Only positive feedback for me with this upgrade.

Do I need to help you find that thread? Can you click on your name in the upper right hand corner to open the User Control panel, then click on my content. That will show you your posts/threads.
