The registration is stagnating by the members from the old forum to the new forum.

What can we do?

There is currently 168 members on this site. I think that is pretty amazing for less than 1 month of being operational. Signups are likely to be much lower now and will steadily pickup when the following occur:

(1) New product is released and people are looking for information or rule clarifications.
(2) People learn about the site at other sites and blogs such as BGG, FortressAT, BoardGameInfo, etc.

I am surprised with the number of sign ups and think it is a very good sign that this site has re-achieved inertia to go forward. It will likely just be a slower pace now with a few blips or increases once in awhile.

Just my thoughts.

Yeah, a lot of the members were inactive, or only signed up to download the CAR. You'll never get all of them back.

^ this. We could probably generate more signups if we made Rules and Workshop accessible by members only.

Took me all evening, but I finally got an aggregated list of the latest threads from BoardGameGeek showing on the forum home page. It took three attempts before I was successful, and it doesn't help that there are 336 different feeds pertaining to Carcassonne including expansions and spin-offs. I'm quite happy with the end result because it's very configurable and easy to expand when more expansions and spin-offs are released.

The 10 most recent threads are listed, with the most recent at the top.

Thanks Scott,
that list looks good with the latest threads from BGG. Now it makes sense.

I can add some fields for that, but I think two us enough. Don't need yes/no fields.
