2 Post Rule - To get a more active forum
Hi Everyone,

I am really new to the forum, well posting is new.

I am a member of several other forums and some of them have a rule of every post gets 2 replies.

I notice there are loads of posts with no anwsers, Even if you don't know much about the subject your ideas or thoughts can trigger someone else to post a response.

Just an idea but it really works with other forums and would be nice to see these one more active.

Hi Rob,

Not sure how you can require two answers to every post! http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb/smile.gif

Good idea though, and worth using as a concept and recommendation.

Sometimes a post doesn't get answered for whatever reason, then a while later someone replies to it, and all of a sudden there's aa flurry of posts. Curious!

So get out there and start replying everyone! Your thoughts ARE valuable!

It was a very different forum but it did get people chatting.

Hi Rob
I was once in Bath. wonderful place.
I think you are right with the reply method.

One of the better things about Horizons is that replies to posts are almost always worthwhile. I dont see why you should reply to a post you know nothing about or cannot make what you feel is a worthwhile contribution too. It could be that the question has been answerred many times earlier, no one has been there done that, or its silly. Making more rules ..tch tch tch!

i agree with simmo. thankfully there is very little bs posted on the hubb. on other bike sites this is not the case: lots of woffle and blah blah, but nothing contructive.
