Re: Site Merger with Techist
I do agree that it'd be nice if members on both sides would be eager to say hi on the other forums and to see what's going on! Indeed guys like Trotter are registered here and I know a few others (including yourself!) have registered there.
I think the problem is, as a small forum you don't tend to attract new members, and over time you slowly start losing members due to other commitments etc, one day you log onto the forum and think "we haven't seen so and so for a while..." As a bigger forum you tend to attract more people into the place due to the content being posted and advice being sought after. I think in order to grow as a community, the two forums have a better chance as one. I just hope that through the merger we don't lose any members from both sides.
Remember, the idea was that computerforums and tech-forums would be merging into one community called Techist. The timeframes are obviously a bit different, but the forum "Techist" is actually set up as part of a change to bring both communities together under a new name. Shame it wasn't done closer to the merger, as if you don't know this fact, it appears to you that techist is "eating" computerforums!
