    I don't think you can force people to post, as some people are happy just to read posts and gain knowledge from there. However a monthly e-mail reminder say, would be a good idea and the e-mail could have some content that encourages posting.

    This would give us a reminder and let us know that anyone can post.

    As to nusiance messages. You will always get this and it is best ignored. The only reason someone posts nusiance messages is to get atention. Take the attention away and they also go away.

    I'll be honest here and say that as I scan some of the posts I'm left scratching my head as to what you're on about, but that's good because it gives a lot of us something to aim for, and leads to researching the subject -
    Wife to me on a Saturday evening, "are you working?"
    "no, it's research"
    "so it's work then?"
    You can't get much past them.

    I dont suppose the useful threads on here could be converted into a lockable page(s) and be put into an FAQ section into a relevant category for furture reference ?

    I think you're right on there beeswax. I try not to post indiscriminate posts- but this darned place can be addictive. Not to say I can really contribute much though- I learn far more than I give out.

    Re: The big 300

    Let's face it ... the site has become a community ... and some people just like to hang round the edges and listen into the conversations ... you get that in pubs too where people will go out with friends and not chat much but still have a fantastic night out.

    A monthly email reminder is still top of my wishlist, as is a monthly synopsis of discussions ... but that takes time to prepare, something that most of us have little to spare.
