Unfortunately the life blood of any forum, is new members - that is generally what a forum is for, new people coming to areas, finding out information. Whilst knowledgable and friendly old posters are important, so is the constant growth of new users.

What has happened to the forum, is people have left it, it has not really seemingly been marketed and slowly but surely, people have left, got fed up, died or just drifted away - but new members have been slow to come - so posts are a little thin on the ground of recent times - unless a few squabbling over politics / brexit. Fact is this used to be one of the most popular websites locally, now it's slipped quite far.

I don't think a new owner needs to be in Spain - what they do need is to know how to market a website & put a little time in - it's doable, but can chew up a little time, so not a case of just buying it as that won't be enough to save or grow it.

We've had 215 new members join this year, out of which just 22 posted.

New members doesn't necessarily mean more posts. :D

Shows people took one look at 90% decided to not participate. Somethings not right, those numbers should not be as they are. 22 new posters to August - i'm surprised at that number.

Problem is, the reverse is usually true. But not in the instance of this forum currently.

Just for your info:

I have turned on the statistics for the site so I can shed light on what sort of traffic this site gets.

Over the last couple of days we have had over 600 UNIQUE visitors per day. The last data I have was from January where we had over 12'000 UNIQUE visitors so when the stats get recorded I can let you know what we are getting.

One of the main reasons for a drop in the posts is also due to Facebook. This has become a preferred choice to ask for information for many people but I still think there is a place for forums like this.

The hosting is a large expense due to the size of the site and the throughput of data and since we have worked on this we have had zero downtime other than scheduled maintenance.

Let me know if anyone want information about this if you are considering taking the forum on.
