How's your day?


Recommended Posts

I know Loppy was having difficulties posting after the downgrade but he was still a regular visitor to the site. PMs are always answered quickly which is why I'm perturbed. It may be that he's taking a break but somehow I'm still worried.

Had a rare excursion to Bulwell today. Just for something to do I suppose.

Nice new coffee shop in the town called "Jerome's" .

A real belting cup of Cappachino. Much better than Costa & cheaper too.

The owner was a young bloke of colour who knows his craft.

I've heard from Loppylugs, Nottstalgia's well known hound. He sends regards and is as busy as a 3 legged dog with fleas!  His words! Gardening and bringing on the veggies in heatwave conditions. Worry not. He's still barking.

Indeed. Good to hear.

 

Responding to Kev's point above about reducing numbers of regular posters..

 

It seems to me that there are many possible reasons.

 

First off.. every product/service etc.. follows a 'bell curve' in which popularity rises to a peak then falls.  I've seen many websites rise and fall way quicker than NS.

 

Second.  Competition from F'book and others has increased since this site started.

 

Third.  There are only so many times we can go around the 'Sweets from the past', 'Old TV Progs', 'Things yer granny used ter say', etc.

Another significant problem is navigation around this site. It's bloody difficult unless you know it well and are viewing on a decent-sized desktop screen. If you've never experienced it, try looking at NS on a phone or small tablet/laptop.

 

There are always a lot of people listed at the top of the homepage as Guests (currently 72). They arrived here because they searched a particular subject, such as Drury Hill, or Trip to Jerusalem.

 

The results lead them to the specific NS thread on that subject; then they read the posts in that thread, and decide to register so they can post their own comment.

 

Having done that, they don't know how to find any other threads or subjects, so they end up a bit lost. And even if they remember making their first - and only - post, they can't find it again when they come back a few days later.

Good point Kev. 

Also.. I've been trying to find some basic info such as 'Total Number of Posts'.. but I can't.

That must account for those who eagerly request information about places, subjects and people, only to b*gger off, never to be heard from again?

 

I have long thought that is the most likely explanation for people who ask something and apparently never come back to see the answer. They aren't being ignorant or rude; they try to come back and find what's been said, but they simply can't find their original question.

Five years in and I still can't find topics after returning to the site. Getting zero results from a search and then told to wait before searching again is frustrating.

I look at my content or try to remember who posted in the topic I want, look up their profile and then their content. Simple it is not!

Very few of those guests on the site are likely to be real people. They’re mostly webcrawler “bots” which trawl the internet looking to find key words for indexing for search engines like Google.

Some of them certainly are bots. I can see their IP address. At the moment there are several from petalsearch in Singapore; let's see how they react when they find their own name coming back at them.

 

But there are still a good number who are real people doing proper searches.

CliffTon:  For whom or what?

 

For the whole site.  My other favourite.. pinkfishmedia.net  ...just passed 3 million posts a couple of days ago and currently has over 30000 members worldwide. I've been a member on there since 2003 and the site traces its origins back to well before that.

 

Like many sites.. its original purpose, which was to provide a forum for discussion of all things related to music, and home Hi-Fi, as well as a platform for the owners' second hand record business.. has somewhat broadened over time.  It now includes lively discussion of photography, music, audio, DIY Audio, Vintage Hi Fi etc..  The 'Off Topic' forum includes discussion of almost anything from sport, current affairs, and politics, to members helping each other with advice on a vast range of topics.

As with NS.. I've met a fair few PFM members over the years, although rather than 'Meet Ups', hi-fi geeks tend to have 'bake offs' where they meet at somebody's house and compare the size of their speakers... ;)

 

Whatever members on here might think of (some of) the discussion on PFM, it is a very well run and moderated site, which is easy to navigate.

Seems like your son has realised it’s a ‘special day’ Mary.  I doubt whether it will be remembered by our two sons …… although last year they turned up together (200 mile round trip) for a quick Sunday roast, despite us being in lockdown at that time.
