What Don't You Like About This Site? Maybe We Can Get Ideas To Make It Better

We have had a lot of discussions here, and I have noticed that a lot, and I mean a lot, have for the most part left this site for one reason or another. We want them back, so how can we make that happen.

Just a note; I have noticed that there are some places, even myspace, where the disscusion post is set to private until it is cleared for post. Pre-read by the community techs. That is useful too. Just like our friend invites, basically, we have the chance to accept or reject.

Maybe we can say what is it we want to see happen to make it better, or say why you don't want to say.

This could help John and the others
try to relate to the problems, and how to fix them.

I have seen people here for a day to a week, and then they are gone.

And look at the amount of friends you have, and how many you actually see any communication from, at all.

There has to be a reason. I am sure that they do not have all the answers, so what then?

Any advice, suggestions welcome.
Any kind of comment to the issues, as to why you want to leave are also welcome, of course, you must be sincere with your thoughts.

claude, you shouldn't worry so much about the ones who don't seem to be on the site! alot of them still are, they just don't feel the the to express themselves. i have made many friends here. i have a lot that drop me notes, but you never see them making any comments on the site. to each of my friends, i am here for you if you need me! if you drop me a note i'll get back to you. that way i know i'm not barging in on your life i love folks and want to help in what small way that i can, but at the same time ,don't want to be pushy. i thank each one of you that has been so kind as to drop this old girl a note!

I know and appreciate you and all your interest in people.

It is just that after reading so many posts lately about people unsatisfied for one reason or another, I decided to see what else we can do.

You're right. I get messages(and regular email, FaceBook notes, etc.) from people I've met on here, some of whom don't post very often. There are some that I remember from when I first joined, too, that I no longer see. People's priorities in life change daily, and there are so many sites that people can get involved with that they sometimes decide to let 1 or 2 go. I don't think that negative things are always the reason for their leaving or infrequently posting.

There has to be a reason, and if we find out what people like and don't like by the majority who is here, maybe we can learn a new design, or way to set it up.

I am offering new options.
It is not just about the negativity.

Just my personal opinion, but I think this has already been discussed in other areas and that we don't need to keep rehashing it. I think this type discussion just opens up the opportunity to post negative things, which just needs to stop.

Instead of talking about it so much, I'd personally just rather see people thinking a little more about the discussions they open up and try to follow the rules that are already in place.
