The site is primarily a news site, it gets used by a few hundred people each day, so far in June it has had over 100,000 hits. Recently the whole forum was deleted and started up from scratch again, it will all build up again. The old forum was unsustainable financially so it was decided to restart using a different model which has kindly been funded by a local philanthropist.

Unlike other sites, the members-online isn't run over 24 hours, I don't know the setting off-hand but I think its 15 minutes, weekends are always quiet.

As long as people are using the site, we are happy, that is what it is about, its not intended to compete with any other online community. Neither I nor the owner want to moderate a hyper-active forum.

New ideas are always in the pipeline to improve the amount of information on the site, on the other hand, if 200 new items a day appear, it would be self-defeating as nobody wants to plough through that quantity of information on a daily basis.

If you have any ideas or suggestions then please feel free to put them forward.

@santasusanna, if you want to carry on using this forum for legitimate use (which excludes spamming or flaming), I suggest you access it through a normal ISP instead of disguising your true location.

I will let the post stand as dd has explained the current situation of the forum which perhaps we should have done earlier to keep the users informed.

Just realised the stats are done on a rolling 30 minute period, not 15 mins like I guessed before.

For June so far, we have an average of 408 visitors per day.

I think you miss the point. These are the stats we target, people that use the site, the site is mostly wide open for guests to read everything, our philosophy is to provide information/news to all, not to have "secret societies". As you can see the weekends are quiet at the moment, we are looking at a number of ideas to plug that gap, any constructive suggestions are more than welcome.
