could you tell me cal what has happened to this site, last year it was alive with chat and help. but it seems to go for such a long time before anyone posts anything anymore, watchtower underground was so helpful where are you all.?????????? starling
I am so sorry to be so long in replying, I know you have probably given up waiting for an answer by now.
I am not really sure why the forum has slowed down so much. I can explain a few things that have happened and give you some theories.
The first problem, as you probably know, is that I had to shut down self registration and ask people to email me with a user name and let me register them. This is, as StillStanding mentioned because of the deluge of pornographic sites trying to register to post their material. I was getting about a dozen attempts per day and it was very time consuming and annoying to deal with. This has severely reduced the number of new users.
Another factor in my opinion is the popularity of web sites like Face Book. All four of my adult children and some of my grandkids are on Face Book and they got me started on it. I have noticed that there is a large number of former Jehovah's Witnesses on face book and we keep in close contact that way. It has proven to be a good tool for me to keep in contact with friends and family around the country.
Just wanted to give you my two cents and let you know I'm alive and kickn'.
