Hi all,

I rarely post and have never been an official member of the UKPS, however, seeing the recent decline I would like to support the society in anyway I can.

However, I can not find anywhere the committee has actually listed what help they need and what the future plans are for the society. I would hate to think all the information in these forums just gets deleted and nobody talks about the UKPS eve again......

So what do you need and how can people help?

I wholeheartedly agree with you in that the Society needs to continue but, sadly, it seems that very few people actually visit the site anymore.

 

So how about it past and present committee members (if there are any) are you prepared to tell us what's needed, or do you intend it to slowly die?

The Society needs a purpose, the forum needs 100 regular posters and say 20 posts per day.

It's a bit chicken an egg though. I know a few experimenters and I am sure there are loads more I don't know.

If the society chooses not to have an active committee that are seen to be doing something then no one will join or even comment on the forum.

Arthur how did you come up with that equation AFAK there is only one site fire working that could hit that amount of posts per day and even then a constant post count would be unlikely.

 

@JonW the real problem is there is no one at the wheel the ship is just drifting and those that have the ability to take hold of the wheel don’t want to do it, it’s a good job that Richard keeps the forum hosted for free and I would to given the amount of information that is available to the public.

 

I know for a fact offers have been made to resurrect the forum unfortunately those that have the ability to respond to the offers have not.

 

I have done my best to keep the community alive with my own forum and as you say there are still a lot of experimenters out there, in my humble opinion the only person that could breathe new life in to the forum is the owner himself by removing the dead wood.
