Why are so many people reading these posts but not contributing? !

Post  kit kat on Thu Oct 14, 2010 3:14 pm

Why are so many people reading these posts but not contributing? Come on, its not fair, especially on the Adminsistrator, who has set up a wonderful tool for us all here. Some posts have hundreds of views and, at most, only a couple of responses - invariably one of them from the Adminstrator. Surely not all responses/posts need be informational, people can just make an occassional friendly, chatty remark and the resulting banter can be enjoyably rewarding.

Well done Frances Smile

Don't know. I have just joined and noticed that straight away. Perhaps there are just a lot of curtain twitchers in Kenya? They like to observe everyone else and feel they have nothing to contribute. Who knows. Its certainly unusual as most of the forums I am on have a much more active comments ratio.

Is there anybody OUT THERE?? affraid

Hi

I do hope that I get some replays I stumble across this forum today and read the forum on Having trouble settling into Nairobi, There's a few posts there with the same troubles as me living in Nairobi. Anyway I agree with you and its a shame that more people dont interact here, its a wonderful place to chat and make contact with other, well done to the creators.

Hi Kimberly and Ruby.

Agreed, it's a bit sad. The Forum could also be signposted better from the Administrator's blog. Perhaps the font on her blog pointing to the Forum was say in red lettering, possibly with a few words to explain the point of the Forum. I did suggest it earlier, but perhaps the Administrator has been out mitumba shopping...

I'm sure there are many people, like me, who are considering emigrating to Kenya, and are using the forum to gather information. I don't have much to contribute in the discussions, but I'll happily read them Smile

Maybe it's because you have to login to post a reply.

Good point Juniper. As it happens, you can actually post quite easily here, but when first confronted with having to use a username etc etc, many people would simply drift off.
