Is the site healthy?

I deliberately haven't said: 'is the site dying?' but it's important that if anyone else feels that things aren't right that we sort it out while we are all still here. everyday lost is a day more folk leave the fold.

I'm thinking that there are dramatically less threads, posts, visitors, members joining.

over to others among you to say what you think but it 'feels' different.

regards

maybe the bergs are getting to good, so there are not enough problems to discuss?

Re: Is the site healthy?

Taffy is correct in his thinking. I found it very hard to get back on the site after the changeover. I managed to get one computer connected. I miss the flea market section. And I think that last year the Force 3 ride generated a lot of posting.

Re: Is the site healthy?

How did i guess who started this thread....

But to be fair it does seem that there is less activity than there used to be with quite a few of the regulars not being seen quite as much.

To counter this there does seem to be a a fair few new members but as lot of these members have the '09 onwards bikes they dont have to ask as many questions as so far they havent got the problems or quirks of the older bikes.

Site usage does come and go in waves though and perhaps we are just in a trough at the moment.

i for one, since i've had the '09 bike havnt had any prblems so find myself coming to the front page and if there are no new threads i dont bother logging in.

perhaps others are doing the same.

Re: Is the site healthy?

I agree with you Cypher, I got a 570 back and am building it the same as my last one, the bike just doesn't really give any trouble much so I don't have to ask any questions here, knock on wood, I do just give the site a quick browse for new stuff every day.

I have ridden many bikes lately and just keep going back to the mighty Berg

Re: Is the site healthy?

So is it because the new bikes are that much more reliable and better designed?

Or is it just because the new bikes don't have enough time on them yet?

I have heard that the new bikes are more reliable in general.

Re: Is the site healthy?

I know that Json can give us site traffic numbers and stuff so perhaps he'll interject here.

I feel see need to see double the threads on the opening screen if we could.

Not sure what it is? maybe some little piggy is just trying to wind me up so I start an 'interesting debate!'. however, I'm sticking to my end of the deal (yet again).

maybe we ought to start a video section?

regards

No its not a wind up.

Its the simple truth that i saw the title of the thread and the one name that sprang into my head as the likely starter was you. Strange that isn't it.

I'm actually agreeing with you that site traffic does seem to be down, but then i try to look on the positive side with the possible reasons.

You really do need to stop being so negative.

Vid section does sound good.

Though id imagine it would have to be as a sort of link to something like youtube as hosting the vids would take up space, but im no web designer so schwim can comment on that.

Comment about being unable to get onto the site after the switch over, i cant recall having that problem but would a bulk email out to all registered users of the 'hi, not seen you at Husaberg.org recently, come and see the new site" type get people going again?

People knowing about the site shouldnt be a problem because if you stick "husaberg" in to Google, the most used search engine on the planet, we're the 3rd entry ot brings up after the official Husaberg site.

Another thing i've just noticed is that on the home page there is no button to register as a user until you hit the login button and then it pops up. Could we have as 'register' button beneath the 'log in' button orsomewhere nearby just to make it glaringly obvious for people finding the site for the first time

Thats all my little piggy brain can think of at present.

Re: Is the site healthy?

We've got one member from Vancouver Island who seems to be doing enough filming to fill his own video section, cheers Looki.

A bit more helmet cam footage would be good especially of different types of terrain.

So yes to the video section from me.
