Why not many active here
« on: March 07, 2018, 01:34:45 AM »
So why are not so many active here? There are 9000 + members and only maybe 5 active here.....

A lot of people are into social networks. Though a lot of these people still visit and read but rarely post. We have to keep posting interesting and compelling materials in hopes of getting people to get engaged. 

Also, a lot of people who used to be teenagers a decade ago, have moved on their lives, most of whom have gotten married and even have kids. So they don

Ashoor, for a long time now this place has been flooded with kurdish and arab trolls who post their propaganda all over threads and even make anti-Assyrian remarks without getting banned. This has not been adressed by the moderation team at all I don't think as I still see these trolls on the active threads. What's worse is a couple of the dummies we have here keep taking the bait and escalate the trolling.

I can imagine anybody interested in coming back here seeing this and thinking: screw this embarrassing display and logging off because it's not being solved.

There indeed have been a lot of trolls in the past year or two. I recall one guy telling us we should go back to Ashurism and that Christianity was a Jewish lie. Then there was "ProudArab" who would do nothing except type racist things and illogical comments. 

To be honest though we have had some legitimate users say bad things as well. I recall one of our younger posters make comments like "we should kill all muslims"

So I agree the quality of conversation has been low here. I don't blame Ashoor though, if he moderated heavily, it would be bad as well. I think there just needs to be an effort by the regular posters to try and contribute higher-quality content, and to not let every interesting thread slip into an argument between 2-3 posters.

Whilst some of the issues have been addressed as to why people are keeping away, the biggest reason I would say is that the forum was down for at least a month.  The rest of the site was up but the forum was offline. Just checked now to see if the forum was back online and I saw this post, thiking it would explain why the forum was down.

Coincidentally, enough, today is our 19th anniversary. Assyrian Voice was founded on this day (April 15) in 1999!

Congratulations.  Still remember a young Ashoor telling me what an awesome website I had.  Such a compliment considering what you have achieved in the last 19 years.

Congrats Ashoor. Crazy to think you have run the website for so long. It may literally be in the top 10% of oldest websites still active on the web or something

I think Ashoor will eventually beat Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger's record.
