    One thing that will get this forum going in the right direction is bunches of people knowing each other well then you will get alot more jokes around which will make this forum more exciting to be in. I think its a fantastic setup & I love how only the other threads are private eg girlfriend one. Nothing worse then a forum you cant even check into.

    That's very true TKR7, and I think that's what we miss from the old days ... but I do have to say that since the off-season started, I for one feel I have bonded with some of the newer/younger members! That might just be me, but that's how I feel.

    Any other ideas to boost the membership/activity of this place next year? I worry about it, I don't want it to die a death ... end up with two or three threads a week, 20 odd posts! :lol:

    If you want to boost the activity of this forum you need more members and with these new members you need to get them to stay and post. This forum has over 1000 members but less 100 members actually come on the forum daily. Also if you go through the members list you'll see that alot of people make a couple of posts, then are never to be seen again.

    If you can get more new members to stay and post regularly, they will bring there opinions and ideas which creates more discussion and that should lead to an increase in forum activity. But to do this means you need to advertise more and get MS name known in the Knights community, i don't know about everyone else but i only found this forum by accident and had never heard of it before that.

    Theres a Facebook group called The Mighty Newcastle Knights which has over 1500 members, if you are looking for new members i would start there. Anyway i hope that makes sense to everyone else :lol:

    People that have been here long enough know that I put alot of time and effort into getting people to join here, I just don't have the time anymore.

    To be honest I think the forum activity is fine and the place is growing on it's own now.

    Lots of people probably don't know that Alicia ... but I suppose you getting busier is probably a big factor if less new users are signing up!

    Can't you return to school or something? For the good of the forum! lol

    Considering when you type in Newcastle Knights on google were 3rd on the list now I'd consider us welll known.

    Let's wait til 2012 season to determine the activity.

    We will try and get as many people back as possible.

    When I type us in we're way down the third page.

    We used to be second!!!

    We are first for "Newcastle Knights forum", though.

    I think it may depend on how often you search for Newcastle Knights then click on ms ... If you do it often it will go higher on the list. It's encouraging to hear it high for you guys though, and on my neutral source (my phone) its now on the second page, yay!

    Hmm, maybe it really does depend on which country you search for it from then! How weird!

    Is there anyway I can change the amount of time I can leave my account signed in and inactive (not browsing or posting on the forum) to a longer time before it signs out automatically?

    Need a pub to congregate to before & after games, tennis club is the Jets official pre game pub should be the Knights aswell as its the closest to the ground, might help us a good social tool for this site. Have it on the match day info thing for home games. Drink prices are good prices there & is in between mcdonalds & the new hungry jacks.

    Sorry for the slow reply! But no, unfortunately I am pretty sure it's the cookies on your computer which control that. I will double-check, though.

    I'm happy to say I have been hard at work and have two quite exciting developments for the site in preparation for 2012! They're state secrets for now, but we'll let you know when they're close early next year.

    I'm still interested in any other suggestions that anybody may have, though?

    Darn! It annoys me as well, especially when you have another tab open and you totally forget about it!

    Ooh! Ahh! Sounds exciting! :dancing:
