Is it extra quiet on here?

Post by timeforhelp1 »

Seems to me it is, hardly any posts.
According to the active topics link, there have only been just over 20 posts today so far, yesterday around 10!
That's really bad ain't it, not sure how many forums are in the active topics link but that is bad.
I noticed a while back and thought nothing of it, until now.

As usual loads of guests online due to the board being open but actual members seem really low.
Also tried to do a members search for how many online for say this month or last and obviously setting are that I cant.

Thoughts?

People have other, more important, things on their mind.

I would have thought that phpBB being a fully mature product, support topics are becoming an extinct species. ;)

People probably spend more time on their own phpBB sites then here. This board is mainly for support after all and discussions for improvements. People will mostly spend time trying to nurture or establish their own phpBB communities.

phpBB 3.2.x has just reached EOL and phpBB 3.3.2 is pretty solid. So there is really only one phpBB release to actively support. The phpBB development team has done a very good job. 👍👍

So as long as you follow the recommendation update/upgrade procedures (NOT automatic update) then you shouldn't expect many problems, hence have no need to come here and ask questions.

that's right. as phpBB gets better and better there is less and less need for support.

I would be that if more people would take the time to read the documentation and maybe even do a search here when they do have a problem that it would get even less busy.
man, what I would do then?
