Post subject: Forum seems so quiet now?
Hi all, i used to come on here loads in 2009-2010 and it used to be soooo busy, especially ttc and gen chat. I stopped coming on here alot after I had my son as life is just hectic and ive just started popping back on here now im ttc again.

Now ive been popping on most nights for a few weeks and it just seems so quiet. Seeing the same posts on first pages on the forums, esp gen chat and ttc, which used to have loads of new posts and debates everyday. Where has everyone gone? Confused Shocked

I know what you mean. I use to check on here everyday ( and sadly sometimes twice a day) but now you can not come on for a week and still see the same posts on the first page.

When i was pg with Belle in 2010 the birth clubs were busy, now there is only 2 regulars that post with me for October!

yeah I used to come a few times a day it was soooo busy I've been coming here since 2008 and I've never seen it so quiet.

Mind you last couple of months I've posted a couple of questions, they've had like over a 100 views yet no-one commented, not even I 'can't help but don't want to read and run' Sad. If that happens to newbies (and a lot of not so newbies) they'd just go elsewhere, I know certainly I've had to go elsewhere and ask questions to find the answers I needed, so maybe thats why Sad

I said this a few months ago Sad I stopped coming on when my ds was born last year & have recently come back on in the last few months & very very quiet. Still have some of the old faces on here Smile but def not the same as last time. I used to get such a buzz from coming on here but like someone said above it feels like the buzz has gone.!! (Not for me lol)....xx

No not just you, I've been a member for over 3yrs and I've noticed a decline in posts, even the reversal section which used to be so busy when I first joined is almost dead and the TTC section is very quiet, which is a shame because this has always been such a nice friendly site which can't be said for all of them Question
Maybe a lot of people are just too busy now, I know quite a few ladies from TTC have had one or even two children since I joined so maybe they've just got their hands full with them now Smile x

To be fair I will admit that when my ds was born I didn't come on the forum for at least 9 months as I was so busy with lo & getting used to being a mum. But now Im in a lovely routine with him & also ttc no 2, I think this forum is great Very Happy I have tried to go on other ones & they aren't as friendly as this one Smile xx

I find myself around so much less because my babies are bigger now Sad

Hard to believe I joined when pregnant with Isabelle and now she's this lanky, chatty little lady who starts pre-school in a matter of weeks! George amazes me every day too, growing up much too quickly, sob.

I have to agree with you I have been on here for a few years now and even I have found it has gone quiet. I think a lot of people have got there BFP and then just been too busy and there is a lot of unanswered post in some part of the forums.
