Maybe this should be the new BPL?
Our main issue is getting that initial traction .... if you have any ideas of how I can help make this a venue worth your time, please let me know!!!
BPL is providing ample reason to leave. People are growing more and more frustrated...
I think the bigger problem might be the years of useful information they have archived in their forums. The articles are useful but have grown stale.
I honestly only go there to sell gear these days ... but used to frequent it a lot .... glad they got the new platform and such, but I think the "Old Guard" posters get old really quickly .... same handful of people all day and all night ...
I'm going to start double posting at BPL and here. Maybe we could get some others to do so and start some momentum.
Observation: AS doesn't have a trip discussion area so I put my Denver Q in the backpacking forum...
That sounds awesome. I will change the wording for the "Find a Partner" section so it's worded in a way that makes more sense and is for trips as well! Just have to run some errands first!
I've created a new section for Pre Trip Planning, Trip Announcements and Trip Reports ....
I'm not sure how to get critical mass over here. BPL may have to really blow it for that to happen but I think it might be smart for you to continue to position/prepare for that.
That initial user base is really the trick ... traction is hard to get. I'm going to start being more active and posting content of value and we'll see what happens ... on a crazy fast dedicated server and everything is ready to go ... haha
