P.O.W. at the forum that must not be mentioned?

FFS, are you keeping a tab on what each of us do or don’t do? Maybe you just need to start more interesting threads to entice us all to join in ;) :P ...but it’s just a forum, people will just come and go.

As Veem/Biggles disappeared just less than a fortnight ago (i'm not keeping tabs honestly just aware that in Shitori/Maraboutdeficelle I am missing an opponent/s) so hopefully they will be back soon : possibly
at the end of their holiday
after whatever occurrence which arrived has passed
whenever they decide to return

Living in hope :)

Edit : Huge thanks to Just a Frenchie who has supported my enthusiasm for Shitori and Maraboutdeficelle admirably :good:

This forum like all the others will go quiet as people get older or just get fed up with it.
The forum still averages 157.10 posts per day since the day it started.

157 posts per day for 406 members looks pretty good to me !
People come and go, as you say... Do they go because they have lost interest in the forum, because they can't cope with arguments, because something has evolved in their life ? Nobody knows !
To keep a forum active, you need new interesting threads frequently, which is a challenge !

A huge "Thank you" to mysty who has a high production rate :D
You learn from your mistakes but it's much quicker and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of other people ! :D

About 12 posts per day since you joined obviously helps the current figures & must be up there with the most prolific.

At last an answer to something that has been bugging me. Apparently productivity in France is higher than in the UK. I just couldn't understand how.....but, of course it's Mysty :good:
