    Developing the forum

    Just said I'd link in this thread in the Off Topic forum - there's probably a few here who don't venture too much outside the Ireland forum - about ways to improve the forum, or to encourage more people on to it, or to build more of a community feel to it.

    Suggestions welcome!

    just for the sake of contributing, this is still 2006 technology, there may be a limit to what can be achieved. There are not many non boards.ie forums left so the truth is apart from the regulars and the occasional lurkers/posters like myself getting new people in may be tricky. How many people under 30 visit the entire site I wonder?
    One Idea may be pre Ireland Match meet ups.
    Another idea maybe alerts of topics in other forums that are particularly busy. I have no motivation to go look in the UCD forum much as I'd love to but if I signed up for an alert and got a message if there were more than 5 posts on a topic in a day might be interested.. not sure how that works technically...

    if growing the forum is a goal then social media is the only way to bring in people these days. I ended up here via dangerhere.com which was widely quoted in the media - the forum on which was something to be seen in its pomp. actually I ended up here via the ill fate premierleagueboston.com website which was something different again. The overall online community now is much smaller (and older )
